It's true that I know nothing about Kaiju, or even what it means. Is it Godzilla only or any of the monsters? I'm not sure and I"m too lazy to look it up. Point being, there should have been a lot more Gamera in that list. Gamera is really neat.

Apparently it's any of them.

I have to say, I have a really hard time looking at any of the badly disguised people-suits and thinking "that's cool."

Kaiju translates into something like "giant monster" i believe, so it should mean all of them.

I was never into Godzilla much. When I was a little boy, my favorite was Giant Robot. I used to run around the neighborhood shouting "Giant Robot, Giant Robot" into my watch and point wildly up at the sky. Come to think of it, I still do that. My neighbors love me.

The list is about kaiju that went up against Godzilla. IIRC Gamera never did.

Also, Gamera was a creation of Daiei Motion Picture Company and was an attempt to rival the success of Toho Studio's Godzilaa.

I have nothing against the idea of giant monster movies, but hell if I've ever seen one that wasn't complete crap. Which is a shame. This list did all of one thing for me - reminded me why I never watched a Godzilla movie beyond the age of 12 (or 27, if you count 1998).

Really? When did Godzilla fight Baby Godzilla?

I'm the only person in the world who liked the 1998 US Godzilla, aren't i? (And the excellent cartoon it spawned.)

Nope, I enjoyed it and in fact liked the direction they went with godzilla. Could have done better casting though...

The article author kept messing up the monsters.  They seemed confused about the different eras.  Mechagodzilla is different from Kiryu, and Minya is different from Godzilla Junior.  They were right, though, that Destroyah was a complete and total badass.

Pacific Rim was everything 10 year old me would have wanted in a Transformers or psuedo-Godzilla movie.

It's FAS, Godzilla went through a dark period of alcohol and cheap hookers after one of Tokyo's destructions.
The remorse was too much for it.

You should watch Pacific Rim. It's not a Godzilla movie, but it is pretty sweet.

That's Godzilla's son so it's kind of a given that he'd be on the list.

And yes, Minilla is derpy as hell.

I also enjoyed it. I thought the French agents were hilarious... their reactions to crappy coffee, the chewing gum ("it makes us look more American"), etc. Broderick was decent, the rest of the cast was kind of meh.

Isn't Ebirah a giant shrimp ("ebi") and not a giant lobster?

Also, they keep referring to Biollante as a male ("him", "his"). Wasn't Biollante based on the scientist's daughter?
