Mekagojira no gyakushu (1975)

Just as good as its predecessor, if not better. Last time we saw Godzilla teaming up to take down one monster. This time, he has to take down two, by himself. This is a great end to the original series, as it contains all the great elements. Awesome fights, which take us back to more inhabited areas. The country side had become a cheap alternative, but you can't beat city destruction. There is also a lot of heart, as we see a ridiculed scientist and his daughter struggle with their feelings. This film actually contains some human sacrifice. Making us and Godzilla equal again. Very impressed with something that could have been all a little much.

Ending the original series on a high

Halfway through the '70s, this was the point where the Godzilla series finally ran out of steam - and lay dormant until the big guy's revival as the bad guy in 1984's RETURN OF GODZILLA. I'm happy to say that they ended the series on a high note, with a typically colourful and spectacular entry. The sci-fi plot is a fun one packed with action and strange characters and devices. Okay, so it may be rehashed and unoriginal, but it's still a whole lot of fun.

Following on from the end of the previous year's GODZILLA VS. MECHAGODZILLA, this opens with a stunning battle between the two monsters, where Godzilla sprays blood everywhere and gets mutilated before ripping off Mechagodzilla's head. Sadly, this isn't a sign of things to come. Once again, there's another alien plot to take over the world, and once again our heroes manage to defeat them. Especially amusing are the Interpol team who act as the film's heroes, who basically epitomise '70s coolness.

The violence here is quite strong for a Godzilla film, with a couple of people being gunned down in slow motion. There's also a surprising scene of artificial nudity, a first and only in the series (it was aimed at kids, after all.). The muddled plot takes in a cyborg girl, a dinosaur living under the ocean, an alien base underground, Godzilla, and the return of Mechagodzilla as an even more powerful monster. It's fast paced, and the monster battles, especially the ending, are really spectacular, filled with explosions and many colourful death rays and beams. Mechagodzilla doesn't die when you rip his head off anymore either! Titanosaurus is a rather funny creature, a dinosaur who looks like a model I once had as a kid, no more realistic than that. All together, this is a fun film for kids and adults alike, with colourful spacesuits, costumes and sets, plenty of action and incident, and a strong score once again.

Back to basics

Mechagodzilla is back and has a friend: Titanosaurus! Godzilla on the other hand has lost his ally from the previous movie (or rather that ally went into deep sleep again), as well as his magneto powers. Consistency was not the strongest suit in the movies, even if they tried to have a certain timeline and certain things that they kept from previous entries. Forget the MCU if you will or whatever DC maybe finally will come up to challenge them: this (cinematic) universe is quite something to say the least.

So without certain powers and without allies to boost with, Godzilla again is challenged to save earth and humans/humanity. I don't think he was ever rewarded? Not in the movies that is of course. Not that he'd want that, he's above it (all) - no pun intended.

So this marks the end of an era - the Showa era to be exact, but that does not mean this is the last we've seen of Godzilla and his kaiju friend and enemies ... but these past 15 movies rewatched recently, really were a great reminder why I loved them as a kid ... hopefully Criterion or Arrow (who have a Gamera set out, which I might watch in the near future) or another publisher will get their hands on the next chapter and era of Godzilla movies and give me something to (re)watch again ...
