A pleasant surprise

Wow! I expected something along the lines of GODZILLA'S REVENGE, what I got instead was a pretty exciting giant monster film. Sure Minya does make for a few cutesy moments but I didn't feel these were overdone as badly as they could have been. Plus I thought the ending embrace was quite moving..of course it does work to take some of the hard edge off of Godzilla so some may hate it for that. I'd recommend this one mostly to older kids who love science fiction adventure stories and who won't be frightened by all the cool-looking giant insect critters. Too bad Minya and Godzilla look so thoroughly silly and goofy in comparison.

I remember this!

This is the Godzilla which I watched as a kid, back when I was still in the States, this movie which features a hatch ling of Godzilla's kind, though goofy looking, it was cute and silly, and it blows rings of energy instead of the flame Godzilla does. It has a parent-child relationship like story between Minya and Godzilla, like when the giant monster insects attack, Godzilla helps it, and tries to show it how to really use the fire breath, but then it improves in the end, and it also shows that Godzilla really does care for the young one after all(awwwww). And of course it has its shares of giant beasts that dare challenge Godzilla, and the hapless humans who get caught in between, especially the giant spider that traps them with a web. Bad dubbing, no sfx, just extra parts to use as special effects, goofy designs, but overall a good movie, better than the US Godzilla(1998). It is worth adding to the collection for every Godzilla fan out there.

Meet Godzilla, Jr.

Despite being enjoyable films, the last two Godzilla installments had not matched the success of Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster (1964) and had fallen below expectations at the box office. In an effort to boost audience attendance, Toho Studios made the decision to soften the king of the monsters and give him a cute baby son. The first Godzilla film to be geared directly towards children, Son of Godzilla (1967) is harmless fun and sweet - the cinematic equivalent of a gum drop. Alas, the film proved to be the most poorly attended Godzilla film yet. Either Toho's kiddie approach had backfired or the film just couldn't compete with the rising popularity of television. Son of Godzilla (1967) shouldn't be the first Godzilla movie you see, or even the second or third. With the Godzilla suit from Invasion of the Astro Monster (1965) torn and frayed, a new one was constructed. Unfortunately, it is one of the most poorly designed suits in the series - bulky legs, large doll-like eyes, and a toad's head. However, it is arguably better than the one audiences would behold six years later in Godzilla vs. Megalon. If you have small children and want to introduce them to kaiju films, I recommend Son of Godzilla.
