Godzilla VS. Mechagodzilla (1974)
Meanwhile Godzilla fights other monsters that are only found in parts of the world like Japan. Godzilla stomps one monster into the ground that looks like a mix between a hedgehog and the monsters from The Killer Shrews. We also have a bunch of silly Japanese folk praying to some monster called King Cesar who is woken up from some deep sleep by some long drawn out singing and dancing from what is supposed to be the sex appeal bikini clad Asian lady. Cesar joins forces with Godzilla and the two monsters tag-team against Mechagodizza but King Cesar gets his ass handed to him pretty quick. What can you expect, Mechagodizlla shoots lazers from his eyes, fire from his mouth and rockets from his fingertips and toes. Geeezzz.
I was lucky enough to catch this thing in the theater with a bunch of drunken, chuckling folk. Even if some pansy asked us to "keep it down" as if Godzilla VS. Mechagodzilla were some deep, philosophical, expression with important and intelligent dialogue, it was still a great experience. Lovers of bad monster movies should enjoy this one. Watch for the scene where Godzilla stomps his enemies head into the ground. It comes complete with red gore! Oh and for those concerened, Godzilla wins!
