Had to do it! Why wasn't one here already????

So, anyway, next weekend, in Chicago, there will be G-Fest XV, see here (hit G-Fest tab at top of page to see more):
G-FAN (http://www.g-fan.com/)
Anyway, I wish I could be there, then my dream of holding the original King Kong, and shaking the hand of the original Godzilla in my lifetime, would be complete! But, I will have to settle for an autograph...
That's ok! :banana
Will post pics and another YouTube vid the moment it is in hand!

Anyway, I will post some of my figure collection again here sometime, but hope that anyone with news of new movies???? Or simply info and interest in the many, many old ones, will share some stuff here.

I for one, love the 1954 original GOJIRA, in it's original JAPANESE version, and also love Destroy All Monsters, the 1993 version of Godzilla Vs Mechagodzilla, and more, but those are my favorites hands down. I have on DVD all of them, so that precludes whether I have seen them all. Love the big G! :rock

So, any Kaiju fans among us? Anyone with stills and info?
BRING THEM FORTH! There must be more TRUE Godzilla films! We cannot be done here! Especially after Cloverfield....:D

I love Godzilla movies, big fan of the earlier stuff not so much the 80's to 90's.
The only things I have are the Godzilla christmas ornaments which are fun.
Thanks for starting the thread Les!

I think I have only seen one or two Zilla flicks when I was a kid. I dont really remember liking them.

What would you guys recommend for a non Zilla fan to watch?

It's an interesting series because in 1985 they did a sequel to the first film after like a dozen others.

My recommend list is:

Godzilla (1954 black and white), also known as Gojira, the very first, classic.
Ghidrah, the Three Headed Monster
Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1975)
Godzilla 1985
Godzilla vs. Destroyah

Nothing will beat the Matthew Broderick Godzilla remake!!!

They took a tired old outdated concept and monster and made it something worth watching!!

I'm pissed there is no sequel!

Ahhh... GFan... I remember going to the 2nd GFan con in Chicago...great time. A small con but still very nice. They had a costume contest on Sat night which was awesome. It's a great time to bring the kids to as well. I used to have most of the Bandai figures but had to sell them off on ebay 'cause I needed the dough. I still have the Marui R/C '54 version and the Biollante version along with the Mothra. I don't plan on letting those get away anytime soon. The only Bandai G I have now is the 1975 version.

Is there a new G movie coming out?! The last one I didn't really care for. Godzilla Final War..ughh.. seemed to Power Ranger for me...

Unless something changes, Godzilla Final Wars was to be the last adventure of Godzilla, it was a strange movie, not sure what they were smoking when they wrote it, it seemed like how do we get all of Godzilla's foes back in one more movie, nice watching him kick the ass of a mockingly poor CGI American Godzilla.

The Classic Media Gojira DVD released a few years ago for the anniversary features the original Japanese and the Burr versions. It's cool to see both, but I like Burr if you're going to use someone like that for a Godzilla film, a highlight of Godzilla 1985 as well. I think Godzilla 1985 actually got more distorted when it was Americanized than Gojira.

This is a rare image from my personal collection. When I was 5, our local newspaper ran an article about power lines and safety or something like that and used a picture of Godzilla breaking through the lines in the first film to illustrate the article, I cut it out and brought it to show and tell at school one time and my teacher was nice enough to laminate it for me and I still have it to this day, sturdy laminate too, almost like hard plastic.

1985

These first are from a set of Japanese lobby cards from the film I scored off eBay, I also hunted down a cool mini book on Godzilla 1985. They actually built like a 25-30 foot tall animatronic Godilla, it only moved from the hips up, but they used it on all the closeup shots of his head. In the original Godzilla and Godzilla 1985, you can tell the difference between the full shots of the guy in the suit and the closeups; in Godizlla they used a hand puppet for closeups and the robot in 1985.

That's a great collection, MF!

I've seen most of the Godzilla films; admittedly I haven't caught a couple of the classics and a few of the more recent ones 2003 and beyond.

The oldies that I have missed I've read about in this Godzilla compendium:

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61E7QGNMMCL._SS500_.jpg
http://www.amazon.com/Official-Godzilla-Compendium-Year-Retrospective/dp/0679888225/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1214769406&sr=1-5

Is there any other one like this? It's a bit old now, since it was first published back in 1998 or so (when I first bought it). It doesn't cover any of the new flicks '98 and beyond.

Seeing Godzilla 2000 in the movie theater was a pretty big deal to me. I wish it performed a little better so we could get more in the States, but it was not meant to be. As far as the Godzilla sequels go, that's one of my faves (both movie and suit).

The original Japanese cut of Gojira played at the Times in Milwaukee a few years ago, but I was out of town during that time. :monkey2

MaulFan

Ya, I missed seeing Gojira on the big screen, but I too took joy in seeing Godzilla 2000 in the theater, the first and only time I've seen a Japanese Godzilla film on the big screen. Sadly, in the U.S. Godzilla is a very niche franchise and doesn't have the power to capture box office numbers to justify running it.

I think you're right... even though it really isn't the best. To me they did at least attempt to give a nod to the anti weapon of mass destruction message of the original.

When I was a kid my mom always laughed when ever the Super X was mentioned... as that was the same name as a drug store chain we had in Ohio when I was a kid. So an advanced fighter with the name of the Drug Store just isn't that impressive :lol

That's the only aspect of Godzilla 1985 I didn't like. The rest of the film had a pretty serious tone, even though there was the mutated sea louse and they fired lasers at Godzilla, it still felt serious but the Super X was more something out of the 1962-1975 era of films and just feels a bit out of place. That said however, I couldn't pass up buying a micro machine type Super X 1 and 2 to go with my 1985 and 1989 Godzilla figures from Bandai, both look to be in perfect scale to them too.

Mine are:

1. Gojira

3. Ghidrah the Three Headed Monster
4. Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974)
5. Godzilla vs. Mothra (1964)

2) Godzilla Vs King Kong (gotta love a tree getting stuffe down someones throat :lol)
3) 1985
4) Godzilla Vs Mechagodzilla
5) Godzilla on Monster Island (I think thats the right one, sometimes the titles run together)

Worst/completely unwatchable
Godzilla Vs the Sea Monster (A giant crab, really?!?
Then the other one was I think called Godzilla Vs the Smog Monster, but I'm probalby wrong. Either way he was battling a giant black globby looking monster... terrible.

The original version of Godzilla was originally in Japanese and made for a Japanese audience. When hollywood got a hold of it they edited in scenes with Raymond Burr to give the film (I would guess) a more understandable perspective for US audiences. So, what you end-up with is a lot of scenes were Raymond Burr is speaking to the someone whose back is to the camera, kinda like the Patty Duke show.

If you get the 2 disc set, MaulFan and I were talking about, you can see both versions. And the Japanese release isn't dubbed, which helps a lot.

Well if it's 2014, that'd be the 60th Anniversary, but seems weird to be planning that far ahead already, and why bother only making them for anniversaries, the G fanbase I'm sure would love more movies, regardless of them being released at some special date. If Toho makes Godzilla movies, I'm watching and owning them.

As for American studios making one, I had my hopes back in 1997 when I heard of the movie coming that it would in essence be just like the Japanese films, only superior CGI and suit work, no dubbing, more realistic sets, and perhaps a real solid story. I like the movie that was made, but I look at it as just a cool monster movie, not a Godzilla movie, nothing about it embodies what Godzilla's about, short of a huge lizard with spines on his back that breaths fire. Japanese Godzilla is symbolic of nature fighting back against man's atrocities, American Godzilla was just about taking a realistic approach to origins and everything. I don't think there's an American film maker that could do a Godzilla movie and not lose the essence of the character, I think it'd always be like what was made or a Michael Bay type movie.

Kabukiman

I don't think there's an American film maker that could do a Godzilla movie and not lose the essence of the character,

This got me thinking. Surely there must be somebody out there that could pull off an American Godzilla. I thought about it for awhile and determined that any American Godzilla would just be another monster movie.

Godzilla was created in a place and time unique to Japan. This small island faces the threat of tsunamis, volcanos, earthquakes, the ambitions of unscrupulous military commanders, and then suddenly, nuclear annihilation. An American Godzilla would be as silly as a Japanese film about the American Revolution.

Godzilla has always been one way for me (and other Americans) to catch a rare and real glimpse of Japanese culture and commentary. I don't need an American Godzilla. As an American G-fan, I'm quite content to be on the outside looking in. It's more interesting that way.

MaulFan
07-13-2008, 09:31 AM
Godzilla movies really are always about statements it seems, at least most anyway.

I recently watched the last few films, and from Godzilla vs Biollante on, there was a strong message about female power worked into them, from the telepathic character of Nikki Sagusa to the military women in the last few films, especially when some of the last films closed with shots of the women at sunsets and things to capture them in a moment of saying hey, a woman can be as powerful as a man.

That's why I don't think an American studio could pull off a proper Godzilla; American movies tend to be made just for show nowadays, no strong cultural statements made anymore, and therefore they won't understand that cultural statements are what drove to Godzilla starting and won't continue that in their own film. Godzilla would be treated like a Transformer or an Alien or Predator, just a creature wreaking havoc.

Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla 1993 RULES! Love that one! Great score. I have that one and the Destroyah Japanese CDs. Awesome music.

Also, regarding just watching Godzilla, I like the part in Space Godzilla where the gang are chasing him on foot and motorcycles, after he comes in from the ocean, as he walks from one area to another on that beach...that was well done to me.

Or here, in Godzilla vs King Ghidora

I love the Heisei version of G, the HUGE one with that long, long tail. Looked awesome!

That's funny, I've been watching G vs. SpaceGodzilla before bed the last few nights and just left off at the beach scene last night.

One of my favorite G suits is the one from Biollante and the 91 Ghidorah movie, he's such a presence and I love how the back spines don't graduate from his head but are just small, small, then all of a sudden these HUGE spines that then fade smaller to the tail.

EDIT: Exactly like that picture you posted Les, I was so happy when I managed to track down the Bandai figure of that Godzilla, it's one of my favorites and it's in the 8" scale instead of the standard 6".

As for American studios making one, I had my hopes back in 1997 when I heard of the movie coming that it would in essence be just like the Japanese films, only superior CGI and suit work, no dubbing, more realistic sets, and perhaps a real solid story.

You mean the one for which Stan Winston designed the creatures?

I love how eBay allows me to come into posession of obscure Godzilla figures and things from Japan.

Just won this 6-7" tall Godzilla 1989 figure, very exciting, much more accurrate than the one I already have in the sculpt work, and particularly the spine paint apps, they're exactly what they should be and look great, I can't wait until it arrives.

This was the first time I'd ever seen or heard of it, which is surprising. Could be it's not as legit as the seller lists it, says it's a Bandai from 1998, but whatever, as long as it's not a falling apart POS and looks as great at the pictures, should be fine. Size and style says Bandai to me though.

I prefer the closed mouth figures, partly because having just about every G suit in figure form, I've seen the open mouth overplayed, but also, on most, it's a solid strip of plastic with teeth embossed and painted and on some it just looks bad, closed mouth looks nicer.

I think I should do some photowork with my Godzilla figures, I've never really done much with them, I've shot all of them to show each suit once, but never anything creative.

The Godzilla w/Matthew Broderick was absolutely horrible.

I never saw Godzilla 2000. How was it?

:lecture Who could ever forget the speech Broderick gave explaining how NYC was the perfect place for Godzilla to lay it's eggs because it was a perfect hiding spot:confused: One of the stupidest examples of screen writing I've ever witnessed.

I believe this was the film that single-handedly destroyed the reputation of the Cannes Film Festival when it debutted there.

Good Lord! That American travesty is why we are not too good at monster movies. We either camp them up, and play down to the fan base, or overdo them. The Japanese don't care. They just make them, totally committed whether it sucks or not, so when it hits, it is fun. I wish the American makers of monster movies could understand that. Cloverfield came in pretty well, closer in tone to the 1954 Godzilla than any other American monster movie has, but it is still missing something. Not showing the monster much is not a plus. I am there for the kaiju, nothing else. Human story? Who cares! Give me monsters or leave me out of it. Only thing wrong with the last Godzilla movie, the Japanese one, Godzilla FInal Wars, was that there was this fight going on with Godzilla and the new Gigan, outside the spaceship where all this human story was going on, and I saw WAY too much human story. WHO CARES! Show me rubber suits in combat! Let's see action!

But seriously, most variants of Godzilla miss it. It's the subtleties that make these movies special. And, to me, the music. Akira Ifikube makes them special also.

Anyway, I could go on all day. Nice catch again Sean. I am kinda jealous here! :D Nice to see your set growing!

You actually hit on something that was a bit of a turn off for me with Godzilla movies starting from like 1991 on. You always have to have a human story, that's just the way it is, but it seemed like almost too much time was devoted to the human story and not enough to the monsters, which ultimately, especially as Americans watching poorly dubbed copies :lol, is what we're watching them for. That's why Gojira and Godzilla 1985 are my top 2 favorites, there was such an emphasis on Godzilla himself in them and in both cases, they really went all out with FX techniques to give a great range of closeups and full shots and just really good stuff.

I think I benefit that I can watch the American Godzilla and just watch it was what it is and not trying to be. I just see it as a typical American movie of its kind and as such its a good film in that body of pictures, but a Godzilla it is not.

From what I heard, there was originally going to be a '94 american Godzilla movie, for which Stan Winston did the designs and to be directed by someone else. Then all kinds of nasty things happened in production and the project was shelved, until Emmerich said he was interested in it. As far as Toho was concerned, they didn't know that the story and design had been changed, and only got to see Zilla when the movie was almost done...

Thought I'd give this thread a bump with some images of my latest acquisition. I can't figure out the maker, it's not really a figure as there's no poseability, and the construction method isn't exactly like Bandai, but overall it looks and is sized like a Bandai piece, so maybe it's not a figure but something else. I love it though, and I'm glad I found it.

I just watched GODZILLA 1985 for the first time on an old VHS tape. I have no idea why some fans hate this movie! Sure, it isn't great filmmaking by any standards, and I'm sure the Japanese version is superior, but IMO, it is the only other Godzilla film that I have seen that at least tries to capture the tone and message of the original. It also features one fo the best Godzilla designs. As opposed to some of the corny and downright laughable designs in the earlier films, this Godzilla actually looks menacing. While the eyes make him look more human, at the same time the eyes and the fangs make him resemble a fierce, Oriental dragon. I also enjoyed the reappearance of Raymond Burr, who added a sense of legitimacy to the 1985 American version.

Sure, movies like Mothra vs Godzilla, and Son of Godzilla are fun Saturday morning adventures, but Godzilla 1985 is closer to what the character was originally about. I even feel it blows movies like Godzilla Raids Again and some of the later Showa films out of the water!

From the reviews I've read, it seems like the Blu disk isn't very good. Bad transfer from the previously released special edition DVD, and it only comes with the Japanese version of the films (yeah, the American version isn't so great, but it's always nice to have both).

It all depends on how damaged the original film is, how it was shot, and how much care is taken in the restoration. Have you seen the Blu of Casablanca? It looks fantastic and almost clear as day. The same goes with the Blu-rays that the Criterion Collection has released. The Seventh Seal (1957) looks AMAZING on Blu-ray. No, it doesnt look like Wall-E, but it's amazing how clear and sharp the picture quality is for such an old film.

That is one reason why Blu isn't taking off. They need to try to educate people more about how older movies can still have massive improvements over DVD based on the original film resolution. Too many people thing 1080P HD resolution is the end all be all and if a film isn't filmed in "HD" that a Blu Ray version is worthless. A lot has to do with if the original is cleaned up and remastered as well.

Well I know films don't have to be shot in HD to be improved, the JAWS DVD blew me away with how nice it looked compared to VHS and I'm sure the BR will too.

I'm talking about stuff frome like 60's back, when the filming was really old and the picture quality was limited just by the tech at the time, it's hard to imagine that there's much raw material in those films to boost, I'm sure whatever can be is, but I just can't wrap my head around it, I'm open to it being done though, just surprised if it is.

True but the main point of my post was to show how an old movie can look on Blu Ray when done properly not how it compares to an old DVD. There are a lot of factors involved but they can hold up to any new film on Blu Ray and can still be sharp, colorful and clear. I just included the DVD shots that were in that original comparison from the AVS Forum. The remastered DVD version still won't be as sharp, clear or colorful as a Blu Ray. Blu Ray (if done right) will give you the closest representation to the original film including film grain.

A poorly done Blu Ray (which there are plenty of) can look no better than an upconvered DVD as well.

I will remove the DVD pictures since it isn't relevant to the discussion.

Those sets, as well as a series called Concepts (which so far is only 4 figures) are sculpted by artist Yuji Sakai, who I learned of from talking with Les, his representations of Godzilla are the best and most accurrate i've seen.

This is a 12" Gojira sculpted by Sakai, I also have the 4 inch he did for Bandai's Cocept Works series as well as the 1962 and 1995 suits from that set. He did all of those dioramas, I have both Gojira dios from the series as well as the 1985, I wish he'd do a 1985 4 inch figure, that and the 1954 are my 2 most favorite suits so anything well done of them I'm up for.

http://www.swmmedia.com/GODZILLA/1.jpg

The Bandai memorial box was a great way to capture every suit in 6 inch form, I already had about 1/3 to 1/2 the figures in it, but some I didn't and snagged and some were made just for that set, like 1985, which I picked up as well.

Ironically, I probably should have bought the set at that sort of price, in the end I think I spent as much for the individual figures over time, but when I was just getting one here and there, it didn't seem like much compared to $400 up front. Mostly because most people didn't split it up, I was so lucky to find an auction for just the 1985 figure, I would have spent $400 on that alone, few good pieces based on that suit.

I really wish Sideshow would acquire the license and make statues, it'd be awesome.

It's a really nice statue, I just really love the 1954 suit and can be very picky about how pieces depicting it look. As neat as it is I've passed on getting the Medicom figure just because it doesn't represent him well. The 12" brown 1954 from Banpresto I posted earlier today is absolutely perfect, as are the 3" and 4" Bandai pieces, all 3 sculpted by Yuji Sakai, the man's got the look down and the detail he gets at a 3-4 inch scale is mind boggling, I've gotten larger pieces that have less detail and quality than what he pulls off.

One dio I really like from the Bandai line is the one from Gojira of him coming over the hill, even though he was a puppet for that clip and the sculpt represents that, I love having a dio of Godzilla's very first appearance on the screen.

I've seen a lot of the Banpresto 12 inchers on eBay lately, try a search for "Yuji Sakai Godzilla", sellers seem more familiar with his sculpting than the manufacturer, and you'll see some great pieces associated with him.

Yeah, he has done some beautiful, larger, and much pricier pieces, that one is a beauty.

Ive alway been a Gamera fan, and wasn't really too high up on even remotely caring to see this new Godzilla. Especially with it being an American production. I was pretty convinced that it was gonna be lame from the start (remember the 1998 one?).
So long story short, I went last night and I gotta say, I was absolutely blown away! Totally not what I was even expecting! I mean, at all! It was fuggin sick! I can't say that this is gonna make me a past tense Godzilla fan, but I do like the new one. Hopefully the new Gamera will be equally as good, if not better.
Oh, also one more thing. I find it extremely funny how this movie just negates Pacific Rim, completely. I hated PR from the start, but jeez this movie makes it look like one of those b rated red box flics.

I don't understand the all the hate. It's a Godzilla film. What did people expect? A romantic comedy?

Went yesterday to see GODZILLA and have to say was beyond enjoyable... This is definitely the reboot I was hoping for.. and it delivered in a big big way!!!! Our group was comprised of 10 moviegoers, ranging in age from 20-50. Everyone gave it very high reviews. I have to think a Mecha-Godzilla will be making an appearance in part 2...:)

I hope no mechaG happens. Would rather they discover monster Island
