View Full Version : The Godzilla and Kaiju Fanclub

Because everyone loves to watch guys in rubber monster suits wrestle each other in a model city. ;) There were a couple of other extremely dead clubs on this subject, but I figured there wouldn't be any harm in making a new one. This club is for all fans of (fictional) giant monsters, also known as kaiju (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiju) (Japanese for "strange beast") or daikaiju (roughly, "giant monster") that were made popular in the 1960's mainly by Toho (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toho). They are divided up into three different eras: The Showa, Heisei, and Millennium series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godzilla_film_series). The most famous Kaiju of all is, of course, Godzilla himself (known as "Gojira" in Japan). Chances are your parents grew up watching the American dubbed versions of these films on Saturday mornings if they grew up in the 60's and 70's, so ask them about these movies sometime. They'll probably give you the same summary I did in this post's first sentence. These monster movies really represent the golden-age of sci-fi popcorn movies. At least something good came out of the Cold War! It's not necessarily the intelligence of these films that make them entertaining (most of them are pretty stupid when you get down to it), but the fact that they're so much fun to watch is what makes them so good.

Here is a list of all Toho movie kaiju linked to their respective wikipedia articles:

Varan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varan)
Zilla (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zilla)

There are also three kaiju that have been originally made for Godzilla video games:

Bagan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bagan_%28Godzilla%29)
Krystalak (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krystalak)
Obsidius (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsidius_%28kaiju%29)

We can also discuss other non-Toho kaiju here, such as Gamera (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamera), but I expect the Toho monsters to take up most of the discussion since they are the most well-known and popular. We can also discuss other Toho movies here that aren't necessarily related to kaiju (although there aren't many). If you are interesting in purchasing some kaiju DVDs (several have been released on that format recently), I suggest Amazon, because that's where I get mine. The Classic Media DVDs that came out a few months ago are very good. They have very nice boxes, the original Japanese prints (with removable subtitles), lots of extra features, and the original American International Pictures dubs (the versions your parents will remember from the 60s which are usually considered superior to the International versions). Some of the other DVDs from different distributors will have the International Version of the movie (which is the English dub by Toho, not the one done by AIP). I have the Gojira and Godzilla King of the Monsters two-disk collector's edition and Godzilla Raids Again DVDs sitting in my room right now, and more on the way.

Here is the Classic Media Godzilla DVD release website:

http://godzillaondvd.com/

As for some basic rules for the club... Don't break any of SPPF's rules, of course. If you want to join, then all you have to do is post saying so. Tell us your favorite kaiju monster while you're at it. If anyone wants to make a banner or anything like that, feel free to do so. I'm not going to force you to post a link in your signature to the club, but you certainly can if you want to, and it may attract people as well.

Now, this club for what giant monster movies are all about: Fun. We can have lots of fun discussing and comparing our favorite monsters and movies, but we can also crank intelligent discussions out of this subject as well (believe it or not). The early kaiju movies actually contain quite a bit of symbolism, in addition to their haunting warnings of the dangers of atomic weapons. In addition to talking about what each monster and movie represents, feel free to review movies you've recently watched so others will know which are must-sees. Also, please do not be a language-elitist. I know many anime fans tend to do this, but making blanket statements here about the Japanese versions being superior isn't needed. Now, I'm not going to lie to you- The movies usually are better in their original Japanese forms, but don't just come out and say that dubbing is evil without supporting your claim. Some of the AIP dubs of these movies are so different from the Japanese versions that they're almost different films altogether (compare Gojira vs Godzilla King of the Monsters and Godzilla Raids Again vs Gigantis- The Fire Monster), and sometimes they are even considered to be better than their Japanese counterparts (such as the American version of Frankenstein Conquers the World, which, unfortunately, is not included in the current DVD release of the movie)! The movie Godzilla vs The Thing actually has extra footage not included in Mothra vs Godzilla. So please keep an open mind when it comes to dubbing, and consider the time and circumstances under which these movies were released in America. This films are historical!

If you've managed to read this far, then well done! Welcome to the club! All new members will be posted on the list below. You will also receive a fun position and a PM upon joining. :)

Hohenheim Of Light (Lightspeed Mothra)
Dragonking (Mecha-Dragonking Ghidorah)

My favorite kaiju would have to be King Ghidorah. A three-headed golden dragon from space that destroys planets and roars like bells is just darn cool. He's probably one of the most original kaiju Toho created and timeless villain indeed. My second favorite would be Anguirus. Even though he's not as strong as the other monsters, he was Godzilla's first opponent and also his faithful sidekick and buddy. Although he's weaker than Godzilla, he's very brave and tenacious, and he sometimes displays some real personality. Anguirus' roar is also cool.

Have you guys heard anything about Godzilla: Unleashed for Wii? I think it's gonna come out around Christmas. It's gonna rock! But the only thing that makes me mad is that Hedorah isn't going to be in it. What's up with that?!

Dattebayo
7th October 2007, 5:00 AM
I'm going to get Godzilla Unleashed for Christmas. I've heard they already revealed all 23 playable monsters (information from Toho Kingdom and Wikipedia), and it really stinks because I want Zilla and Monster X to be in the game.

Horn Drill
7th October 2007, 5:27 AM
Well, according to Zilla's Wikipedia article:


Zilla is rumored to be in the upcoming game Godzilla: Unleashed. Pipeworks Software, Inc, the company creating the game has refused to release any information on Zilla being a playable character, adding weight to the rumors. Also notable is the inclusion of Sydney as an arena in the game, Sydney being the city in which Zilla fights Godzilla in Final Wars. He may very well be one of the two monsters exclusive to the PS2 version. However, he is very unlikely to have an appearance on the Nintendo Wii, as the 23 kaiju-limit has been reached. However, due to the amount of buzz about both the PS2 and the Wii having "exclusive monsters", and that Mecha-King Ghidorah has been revealed as a Wii-only character, Zilla still has a good chance of appearing on either system.

So, who knows? Maybe Zilla will be in the game. I would've rather them have kept out the ones they made just for the game so they could have more of the original kaiju. It seems dumb to put any of those "fakes" in there when they're keeping even one fan favorite out.

Dattebayo
7th October 2007, 3:07 PM
Predict two Kaijus that will be exculsive for the PS2 version of Godzilla Unleashed.

Horn Drill
7th October 2007, 6:50 PM
I think King Caesar and Biollante are already confirmed for all versions of the game (Biollante is at least going to be in the Wii version).

The PS2 exclusives will probably be Zilla and a more obscure monster... Maybe Ebirah or SpaceGodzilla? SpaceGodzilla would be really cool. I doubt they would use King Kong or Frankenstein (which would be really obscure), but it's always a possibility. I thought they said Mecha-King Ghidorah was going to be Wii exclusive, but then it looks like it was also confirmed for the PS2. The Wii needs some exclusive monsters too. >=(

Thatís all I can say for now. And not putting in all the original monsters yet helps them sell newer games down the line. Thatís all I can say for now. And not putting in all the original monsters yet helps them sell newer games down the line.

Sure, welcome to the club.

I agree with Dattebayo about the new monsters. They could've put Ebirah, Hedora, Varan, the Gargantuas, Manda, Battra, Zilla, or different forms of Godzilla in there rather than two awkwardly out-of-place monsters that the fans don't care about or want. But Darato is probably right about how they're saving more monsters for future games.

Which Kaijus are the most popular in America?

Horn Drill
10th October 2007, 4:46 AM
Godzilla would have to be number one. I think Mothra is number two. Number three is a toss-up between Anguirus, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. I know King Ghidorah is the third most popular in Japan, but Anguirus is more popular in America than in Japan (oddly enough).

I ordered Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster, Godzilla vs Monster Zero, and The Seven Samurai DVDs from Amazon today. The first two movies are the good-quality Classic Media releases, so I'm really looking forward to those.

Well, I guess they could've brought them back for the Millennium era, but it would be hard to make new stories for them. Or maybe they wanted to focus more on new monsters or reviving Showa monsters.


Strange. No one mentioned Jet Jaguar being popular in America.

I watched King Kong vs Godzilla yesterday, and I watched King Kong Escapes this morning. They were good movies, but my complaint about the DVDs is that they were pretty bare-bones. No special features, and no Japanese language version with English subtitles. King Kong is owned by Universal Studios, so they have to rights to the American versions of these two movies. Still, they were fun and entertaining, and I don't regret buying them.

Now I'm about to watch Mothra vs Godzilla. :)

EDIT: Wow... Mothra vs Godzilla was very good. Ifukube's score was very dramatic, and the Shobijin were... Cute, to say the least. ;) Heh heh.

I agree. Thats the only movie they show on sky movies apart from godzilla king of the monsters.

And come on. Zilla deserves a new movie. The movie "Godzilla" wasnt bad. It was kinda good. And in Final wars it was basically a cameo he got. I agree with wolfy. He needs an epic battle. Anyone notice he looked a bit, well smaller in final wars than in Godzilla. Perhaps he wasnt fully grown. I ike to think that he was tail whiped in to the sea and missed the opera house so Godzilla just blew up the opera house and zilla swam off. Possably grew.

Godzilla, on the other hand, has atomic breath. ;) While Godzilla might have a natural aversion to fire, it never really hurts him all that much. I think Godzilla's healing abilities combined with his nuclear powers could beat Gamera.

I get paid to go to college, so I'm wasting my extra scholarship money by buying stupid movies.

I watched The Japanese and American versions of Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster and Invasion of Astro-Monster last night. IAM is the weird International title. It's better known as Monster Zero. Both were actually pretty good, even if the good monsters got a little bit more silly in them.

Which is the best Godzilla film you've ever watched?

Horn Drill
20th October 2007, 7:00 PM
Probably the original. Godzilla is big, bad, and scary. Mothra vs Godzilla (not Godzilla vs Mothra) is the next best, but others come pretty close.

I have a feeling someone will say GMK is the best one, but it's a bit overrated IMO. It was good, but King Ghidorah was a good guy for cryin' out loud!

lol I just watched Seven Samurai here at school: All 207 minutes of it. It's definitely one of the greatest films of all time and certainly one of the best I've ever seen. (Right behind Star Wars ANH, of course. lol) It's actually a Toho film that came out in 1954, which was the same year Gojira was released. What a historic year for Toho and Japanese (as well as global) cinema!

Which company should hold the rights of the Godzilla franchise?
I would say Disney because I always want the company to have the license, so they could put Toho's most popular monsters in seperate Disney factions: Heroes, Princesses, and Villains.

HOW DO YOU ACTIVATE RAGE? OR CRITCIAL MASS?

Press square and circle to activate your Power Surge to get the buff, and then press square and circle again to use the attack. You get into Critical Mass by absorbing enough crystal radiation (at least that's how it works in the Wii game).

New Topic:

For me, it's the 1974 Godzilla.

Well, I know in Godzilla: Unleashed, Godzilla 2000 is the fastest Godzilla. His stats are 5 Attack, 4 Defense, 5 Speed, and 4 Weapon.

I just made this post in the Nintendo Discussion on SPPF:


Yes, I am aware that this is a 3rd party game and not a Nintendo exclusive (games of the same name are available for the Wii, DS, and PS2), but the Wii game constitutes the best part of the project and deserves its own thread. Has anyone else played this yet? It is very, very fun. I just unlocked all of the final items in the gallery last night, and I got the game on Friday. I completed it after playing for hours and hours every single day. Apparently (according to the Wii menu log), I played for 20 hours on Saturday. O_o It's that dang fun.

About the game itself: It's the third game in the series of fighters produced by Pipeworks Software and published by Atari. The first game, Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee, was a Gamecube exclusive for a while until it was released on the X-BOX with some extras. The GCN game sold very, very well. The sequel, Godzilla: Save the Earth, was released on the X-BOX and PS2. This game featured online play for both versions. Unfortunately, because of a lack of time and money, Pipeworks was unable to implement online play in Godzilla: Unleashed, but this game still has amazing replay value.

The game's plot centers around mysterious space crystals that infest earth and alter the environments of our cities. Sydney becomes a frozen wasteland, San Francisco is torn apart by earthquakes, Osaka is filled with poisonous gas, Seattle is covered with lava from a newly-formed volcano, London is lifted into the sky against Earth's gravity, Tokyo is flooded by tsunamis, and New York is the impact site of the crystal asteroid.

The gameplay itself is very unique. There are 26 monsters to play as, and they're all divided into four factions: Earth Defenders, Global Defense Force, Aliens, and Mutants. The Story mode is completely nonlinear, meaning that you can choose your own path (your initial faction won't hinder your choices). You can destroy cities or protect them. You can steal all of the power surges that come from the crystals for yourself or destroy them. You can help your friends or betray them. You can avoid fights or battle with every monster in sight. Virtually every choice you make will affect your standing with the different factions. The GDF will appreciate it if you protect the cities, while the Mutants love destruction. The Earth Defenders want to eliminate the crystals off the face of the Earth, but the Aliens want to gain as many power surges as possible.

Here are the different factions and their monsters:

Earth Defenders
Godzilla 2000
Anguirus
Fire Rodan
Mothra
King Caesar
Baragon
Varan

Aliens
Gigan
King Ghidorah
Orga
Mechagodzilla
Megalon

GDF
Kiryu
Mechagodzilla II
MOGUERA
Jet Jaguar
Mecha-King Ghidorah

Mutants
Destoroyah
Biollante
Megaguirus
Titanosaurus
SpaceGodzilla
Krystalak
Obsidius

Krystalak and Obsidius are two original monsters designed by Pipeworks and approved by Toho. Notice how I said there are 26 kaiju in the game, but only listed 24? There are two secret monsters that I won't spoil for you. ;)

I really want to get the word out about this game, since you can't really appreciate it until you play it. While it was made by Godzilla fans for Godzilla fans, you don't have to be a hardcore kaiju fanatic to have fun with this game. The attack system was specifically designed for the Wii remote and nunchuk controller, so it is very unique and innovative. The health and energy systems were also reworked from the ground up. This is quite unlike other fighting games. There is a surprising amount of strategy involved for a game about giant monsters. :p

I know this sounds like one big advertisement, but I HIGHLY recommend this game to anyone with a Wii. It is both a great one-player game and party game at the same time. Although I have unlocked everything in the game, I am still not bored with it and look forward to playing it again in a few minutes. In fact, I like this game so much that I bought an extra copy to give to a friend as a Christmas present. If you're not sure about buying it, rent it first to see how you like it (which could be said for any game).

If I were to rate this game, I would have to give it a 9 out of 10. It's not perfect, but it comes a long way from the previous titles, and you can really tell the developers put a lot of hard work into its production considering their own time and money issues. The members of Pipeworks really got involved with the fans on this game (I can actually say that I get to talk with the game's Head Character Designer, Simon Strange, on a daily basis on the game's official online forum). I'm saving the 10 out of 10 for (hopefully) the fourth game, but I can say right now that Godzilla: Unleashed is my most-played Wii game. I don't even think I spent this much time on Twilight Princess. That might just be because I'm a huge G-fan, but I wouldn't play any game this much if it wasn't inherently fun.

Sorry about the long post, but I just wanted to let you guys know about what makes this game unique so you won't pass it off as another fighting game or whatever. Try it, and I know you'll like it.

EDIT: Here is the game's official site.

My friends and I had a party on Friday, and we did play Godzilla: Unleashed for a little while. We should have played it more, in my opinion, but we deviated. However, I still managed to kick major butt with Mothra and Varan. lol I guess if I can ever have a party at my house, I can make sure we play it the whole time without letting those other little control freaks put Naruto or Guitar Hero in. lol
