Top 5 Terrible Godzilla Suits (aka Godzilla at his worst) 最悪のゴジラスーツ

facepalm-Godzilla

In 28 movies stretching nearly 60 years Godzilla has shown remarkable staying power in pop culture. Neither Japan nor Hollywood have been able to replicate that kind of longevity in sci-fi or horror, in fact, outside of James Bond, in any genre. Just think, Godzilla has more movies to his name than King Kong, Alien, Predator, Jaws, and Jurassic Park combined, with numbers to spare. However, It’s been a wonder, at times, how the King of Monsters ever got this far when you consider some of the entries. So lets take a look at some of the very worst Godzilla incarnations to date (remember to check out Deadly Movies Top 5 Godzilla Suits too here): Continue reading

How BIG is the new Godzilla?

1724937_718331444863929_76056193_n

The new Godzilla poster has sent many a tongue wagging over the sheer scale of the beast. At first glance he would appear to be twice the size (more if you consider the perspective) of the  Transamerica Pyramid, leaving you with the reasonable conclusion that Godzilla will come in at some 520 meters (1,700 feet). Wow! That’s a lot of Goji.  Continue reading

Suit_large

It’s been 60 years, 28 movies, and one Matthew Broderick since Godzilla first munched and crunched his way across Japan. In that time the King of the Monsters has had many a career high and low. Each movie sees a different take on the creature, often using a different suit design. So join Deadly Movies, sushi firmly in cheek and sake snugly in enema, as we take a look at the greatest Godzilla suits to date: Continue reading

Godzilla 2014: Trailer Breakdown.

Wallpaper_Godzilla_2014_1600x1200_JPosters (1)

Gareth Edwards have delivered one tasty looking Godzilla trailer. Saying that this is still very much a teaser, with the big guy (wisely) kept very much in the shadows and debris. There are more than a few clues to be found though, so let’s have a little rummage around the trailer for clues.  Continue reading

Great Moustaches & Beards In Horror History 1964: Yoshifumi Tajima in Mothra vs Godzilla

Yoshifumi Tajima Mothra Godzilla

Now I’m no fancy-pants World War II historian, but I know a Hitler ‘tache when I see one.., and this sir is a Hitler tache. To be fair to Mr Tajima (or Mr Tajima Sir as an 80s movie would call him) the Hitler moustache is an actual facial hair style known as The Toothbrush Moustache – although butthole moustache would be a better term as I wouldn’t attack my oral hygiene with that upper-lip turd. The Toothbrush Moustache isn’t exclusive to everyone’s least favourite homicidal Nazi maniac, it was of course sported by Charlie Chaplin, Michael Jordan (yes at one time he fashioned one), Robert Mugabe (another wanker), select hipsters, and any eleven year-old with a black comb. In this case Mr Tajima struts around the place all full of himself because he’s captured Mothra’s egg; little does he know, Godzilla has no time for Tootbrush Moustache’s and is about to get all atomic breath up in this beatch. Saying that old Mr Tajima Sir does put in a scenery chewing performance of epic proportions as he gurns his way through the movie with gusto. So let us remember Mr Tajima Sir, not for his Nazi sympathising face fashion, but rather a bumbling buffoon with a half-hearted dirty sanchez.

The Return of Tuna Head

Deadly Movies Cameos: American Godzilla in Godzilla Final Wars’ (2004), Dir Ryuhei Kitamura

So back in 1998 Hollywood had a limp stab at making a Godzilla movie, replacing Tokyo with New York, Toho with Roland Emmerich, and importantly introducing a whole new Godzilla design. Gone was the man in a suit, in came a full CG monster. The box office and critical response was tepid to say the least, the Japanese response was like a sake hangover. In official Japanese Godzilla mythology the monster that came ashore in New York was not Godzilla but rather a rogue Kaiju (large strange beast) that the silly Americans mistakenly identified as the Godzilla. Doh. So, game for a laugh, in 2004, Toho had yankzilla (lovingly referred to as tuna head) and japzilla face off against each other on the mean streets of Sydney (neutral territory perhaps?). You see yankzilla was just another Kaiju being deployed by evil aliens to take japzilla down (you can’t make this stuff up, unless your pissed on sake). Needless to say yankzilla has his ass handed to him and ends up neck-deep in Sydney Oprah House. All I can say isあなたは土台のマグロの頭です! You sure are, you sure are. (Don’t speak Japanese? Go here)

Deadly Movies Reviews|The Return of Godzilla (1984) aka Godzilla 1985

I

King of monsters? Can it be disputed? No not really. Godzilla has a massive 28 movies under his belt (29 if you count the 1997 American one, some do some don’t) and this is part 16 and in a way part 2. The Return of Godzilla invites you to forget all preceding Godzilla films, except for the 1954 original. So it’s a sequel, he hasn’t been seen for 30 years, horror fans get into Halloween H20 mode. The Return of Godzilla feels like one of those back to basics films. When a franchise gets out of control, goes too far from the source material, gets too silly, you strip it all back and start again. So there is no Godzilla versus, no other monsters, no hero Godzilla coming to the rescue, and best of all no Minilla (the annoying son of Godzilla). Continue reading
