GODZILLA VS. MEGALON
I won’t hold back by stating this is one of the worst entries in the “Godzilla” franchise (damn I feel like I’m saying that a lot lately). It’s definitely no better and perhaps a hair worse than the previous film “Godzilla vs. Gigan” by making many of the same mistakes and some new ones, including my biggest pet peeve… which you guessed it… is FUCKING STOCK FOOTAGE!
Bonus Rant: Though made in 1973, “Godzilla vs. Megalon” was deemed so bad that it didn’t even get a U.S. release until 1977 and as false advertising the poster artwork was made to mimic 1976 remake of “King Kong” with our two monsters fighting on the world trade center. I remember as a kid loving the artwork but being sorely disappointed that no sequence in the film took place in New York on the world trade centers. Gotta love those distributors and their tricks to get asses in the seats…
Godzilla will return in "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla"
