Topic Kaiju Transmissions - Ranking All the Godzilla Films!

Posted Jan-08-2017 2:04 AM

Hey peeps!

Byrd and I from the Kaiju Transmissions Podcast are attempting to compile a "Godzilla Movie Ranking" list from multiple forums and groups throughout the Godzilla fandom, one that we would discuss during a future Kaiju Transmissions Podcast episode. I would of course post the final results here. To participate, you only have to follow follow a few simple steps:

1) Follow this link, which basically asks you to choose between "movie A and movie B" until you've ranked all of the Godzilla films, then post your results in this thread. For the sake of this exercise, we are including GINO, Legendary Godzilla, and Shin Godzilla. Lastly, because some of the Godzilla films have been Americanized, just pick the version you prefer and base your ranking solely on that version. For instance, if you prefer Gojira 1954 over Godzilla, King of the Monsters, then complete your rankings with Gojira 1954 in mind.

2) Evaluate the films based on which you "prefer." Meaning, I tend to rank films not necessarily based on which movie is technically better made or produced, but a combination of my overall enjoyment and how well the movie made. Thus, I'd rank MZ higher on my personal list than Gojira, though I think Gojira is the best Godzilla film. For me, this takes into account my "favorite" films as well as the "best" films and feels like a happy medium way to evaluate my rankings.

3) Please list your age, assuming you are comfortable doing so. It's not a deal breaker if you choose not to reveal this info. The common consensus has always been older fans prefer Showa, newer fans prefer Heisei and Millennium. I'm curious if this pans out. PS - I'm 31.

I will take all the responses, create a spreadsheet, and then post the results based on each Forum/Group individually as well as the fandom collectively.

******************

Ok did the survey. Based on the results I would say the middle area could switch around a little since I sometimes rank these on the day or how recently I've rewatched them, so with a grain of salt my final results were:

Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995)

Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989)

Monster Zero (1965)

Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975)

Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster (1964)

Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974)

Godzilla (1954)

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991)

Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964)

Godzilla 2000 (1999)

Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster (1966)

Godzilla Raids Again (1955)

Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla (1994)

Return of Godzilla (1984)

Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1993)

Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972)

Son of Godzilla (1967)

King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962)

Really hard, we're talking about a list of like 30 movies here

I Want To Live but I'm Dead Inside. I will join The Resistance and unleash my Monster. I'm Sick Of It and I Feel Invincible. I want to feel Awake And Alive. I'm Not Gonna Die.

Yeah, ranking these is very difficult. I think the main focus during the podcast will be the top 10 and the bottom 5, which for my personal rankings the preference revealer seemed to get right. The middle was a little more tricky.

Darth Tyrant,
Read his full original post. That's why you use the link he gave to simplify the process.

Yeah I would say the top and bottom of my list are pretty correct, and the middle being out of wack is probably my fault for doing some votes without thinking, or misclicking.

 

Fun little thing though, some rankings on the top half were really close so on a different day my list may look a lot different.

^1998 should be the lowest

^In your opinion maybe, while I don't love the 98 movie and think it has a lot of problems, I could levy the same sentiment toward all the ones I put below it.

Fairly close. There might be a couple that could flip/flop. I never saw Shin Godzilla, although I feel fairly confident that I'd like it more than many on this list, which is why it ended up where it did.

What gets me is, how interchangeable these movies are in my list. Granted, the top 10 are a no-brainer for myself and the bottom 5 are right. The top 10 are basically my "go to" films and that's not even including other great Kaiju films like Gamera 3 1999, Gamera guardian of the universe 1995, or even Ultraman the next 2004. If I were to include those films, my top 10 would be a completely different story.
