Ever since it’s inception in the Ishiro Honda’s 1954 film ‘Gojira’, filmmakers and audiences alike have marveled at the fictional monster. The enormous, destructive, prehistoric sea monster has been depicted to be awakened by nuclear radiation. With the Hiroshima & Nagasaki bombings still fresh in the consciousness, the monster was conceived as a metaphor for nuclear weapons.
Gojira now more famously known as Godzilla has been depicted in a total of 31 films in the last 6 decades. Many filmmakers have tried to capture the monster as Honda once did, but only few have succeeded. Various films have portrayed Godzilla in different ways. Some have portrayed Godzilla to be an anti-hero or even a monster defending humanity. Here’s the list top Godzilla films ever. You can watch some of these best Godzilla movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
10. King Kong vs Godzilla (1964)
Thats right, two of your favourite fictional monsters going toe to toe. King Kong vs Godzilla is a 1964 science fiction film which was also the third film in the Godzilla franchise. A pharmaceutical company captures King Kong and brings him to Japan, where he escapes from captivity and battles a recently released Godzilla. All hell breaks loose. It is literally the Clash of the titans once the two monsters step it up to each other. Of course now the visuals look dated, and the monster suits are laughable. But despite all that ‘King Kong vs Gozilla’ is fun and entertaining. Decent performances from the cast involved.
