Good Morning, Godzilla

It was too hot to go anywhere or do much of anything this weekend so I spent a good chunk of it holed up in my air-conditioned bedroom watching Godzilla movies, as one does, and I have to say I found Godzilla Vs. King Ghidorah, from 1991, super crazy enjoyable. And not just because they were constantly finding excuses for their star Kosuke Toyohara, seen here, to be coming to or from changing his clothes. (Was he a well-established heartthrob at the time? I am not complaining but it was super gratuitous, especially in the context of a Godzilla movie.) Anyway Godzilla vs King Ghidorah was all about time travel, and the goofy origins of Godzilla & Ghidorah, with some shameless Terminator 2 rip-offs sprinkled on top (but shot like a scene from Benny Hill). In other words, perfection! I give this film, "Three King Ghidorah Heads Up!"

I rather like Godzilla vs. Mothra absolutely delightful. The tiny twins in the cage are fun.
