Damn you lucky Bastard Moribund !! I wish I could go see it with you. I also heard the 1954 Godzilla movie will be playing at a convention in Boston I think. I first saw Gojira a.k.a. Godzilla back in 2001 at G-Fest at a near by theatre. The basic diffrence between the original Japanese 1954 Godzilla movie and the USA 1956 movie Godzilla King of the Monsters is that the 54 movie is 97 minutes long and is a much darker movie. Godzilla King of the Monsters is about 79 minutes long and has actor Raymond burr in the movie. In the 1954 movie they say H-Bomb while the USA version is waterd down some and the term atomic bomb is used instead.

What you find out in the 1954 Gojira movies is that Dr. Serizawa is being funded by the Nazis for his research work. Later serizawa invents the Oxygen bomb which is just as powerful as a nuclear bomb. In the USA version Serizawa is portryed as a guy who went to college with Raymond Burr and both are good friends. The movie itself was inspired by a real life event that happened a few months before where a Japanese fishing boat had been nuked by an h-bomb at bikini island. The name of the boat was the Lucky Dragon. Let me know what you think of the movie. I dont think you should have trouble reading the subtitles.

Last year Rialto Pictures was showing the movie in theatres across the country as one film cretic put it Godzilla 1954 is the Citizen Kane of Giant Monster movies.

They had the original [Or possibly the 1st USA one] set to play on TV last weekend, but at the last minute, they changed it to Godzilla vs Mothra, which I own [And dont like much]. I was all psyched, but then the annoncer called out the movie, it sucked:(

Hi Return a couple of tidbits about the 1964 mothra vs. Godzilla movie. In the original movie there is no Fronteer Missles that fire on Godzilla. However in the USA version there are and the USA version is a minute longer. Most Godzilla movies its the original Jap version thats better but in this case some fans think the USA version is better because of the fronteer missles I say they are about the same. If you compare Mothra vs. Godzilla 1964 to Godzilla vs. Mothra 1992 remake the 1992 movie is much better and makes the 1964 movie seem like its a peice of shit lol. I like the idea of Mothra having an evil twin in the remake also in the remake Mothra and her twin Battra have lasers and the Mothra twins the 2 little girls called the twin farries are called the Cosmos in the 1992 movie.

The remake of Godzilla vs. Mothra in 1992 is awesome. I never much cared for Mothra vs. Godzilla 1964 but the remake in 1992 wow great movie indeed and I hate Mothra. Another movie I dont care for is the 1974 movie Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla. I am glad it was remade in 1993 when I saw the remake I was blown away. MechaGodzilla in the 1993 remake was 70 meters taller than he was in the 74&75 movies. He stood at 120 meters and Godzilla was 100 meters tall twice his original hight. A new Rodan and a new version of Godzillas son called babyGodzilla. This whole movie was awesome from start to finish. BabyGodzilla was in 2 other Godzilla movies but bigger in size in 94 he was called LittleGodzilla at 30 meters then he was 41 meters in his 3rd movie being called Godzilla Jr.

I am generally not a fan of these movies. Thought they were just funny at best. Very, very bad effects. I'll have to admit they are classics though.:)
Well, you're not alone. I did find myself enjoying it. The problem was, it wasn't Godzilla. I wouldn't have minded changes being made. For better of for worse, any American Godzilla should be different from Toho's version or all you've done is transplanted him. But this wasn't an American Godzilla, this was a whole new mosnter entirely. Either they should have made him more like the original, or given the creature a different name and let it stand on its own. It's actually a well designed monster on its own.

Hi Mr Shape in Tristars 1998 so called Godzilla movie the monster was given a name and Mathew Brodrick said the species of this giant mutated Igunana was Igunanasarus. Igunanasarus is what it was named in the movie. There are 2 other Godzilla movies that were made in later years that prove that Tristars Igunanasarus is not Godzilla. In 2001 Toho made the movie Godzilla Mothra KingGhidora in this movie there is a discussion about giant monsters who have attacked citys around the world. One monster was said to have attacked NYC in the late 20th century and the USA thought it was Godzilla but they were mistaken it was just another monster. Thats what is said in GMK. The other Godzilla movie that proves the Tristar 98 monster was not Godzilla was last years Godzilla Final Wars in 2004 where Godzilla and the Tristar 98 monster meet and fight Godzilla kills the USA 98 monster in a minute. As they say in the Highlander movies There can only be just one.

Who cares, Godzilla is a fictional character, they said that was Godzilla then its Godzilla. Plain and simple. By the way its a completely different story so it might have been some other monster.
