 As for Godzilla's little victory jig here, it doesn't hurt the movie at all.There's already plenty of plot holes, why bother with this? And the children Did and do love this scene.

Yep. The kids actually prefer the older Showa movies. The newer ones, they mostly just fast-forward to the monster scenes.  I confess I almost never watch the Heisei or Millenium series. too boring.  Might as well have Markalites for Monsters. Were it not for the Ifukube scores, they'd have nothing.  All Godzilla ever does  is just shoot his rays.

 Maybe Godzilla should've talked More. could've been silly. To Mothra: Oh, Bug Off!  Or in Ghidrah, what if the Fairies gave us a literal translation. What was Godzilla's terrible Language?

One of my favorite cinematic moments.

This look at the late 70s Marvel comic is pretty fun and it also mentions the Godzilla dance.

I like how you have Rodan giving Godzilla a shocked look like, "Chill out with the victory dance, man! You're making us look like dorks!"

The Godzilla dance is up there with the Doctor Who Drunken Giraffe!

Yes; Rodan is making a mental note of not inviting Godzilla to parties anytime soon.

Yeah! Take that Ghidorah!

Its funny how Kaiju math should have the first Ghidorah movie be better with Mothra, But Monster Zero is a tighter film with better fights.

And Nick Adams!!!

The fights in "Monster Zero" are really brief and aimless. Without Mothra guiding them, Godzilla and Rodan don't seem to know how to handle Ghidorah at all. On Planet X, Godzilla hides behind an outcropping and fires impotent rays and throws rocks. On earth, he just ineffectively punches Ghidorah while Rodan holds his tail... and then it mercifully ends when they all tumble over a cliff and Ghidorah decides he's had enough.

But the battles in "Ghidrah", particularly the grand finale, are a visual spectacle of action and effects work that is sorely missing in its "Monster Zero" counterparts.

If you say so, I enjoyed Monster Zero more. They looked like puppets in Ghidorah and Godzilla was getting his ass kicked by Ghidorah easily. To each their own.

Also they did not have Nick Adams and Kumi Mizuno! (but they did have the Peanuts to be fair.)

"If you say so"

I do say so and so do the movies. Go back and watch them back to back and I think you'll be surprised at how damned little monster action there is in "Monster Zero." This is not a "to each their own" situation but verifiable facts. Does Godzilla take the action to Ghidorah when fighting on Planet X? Or does he hide behind a rock? The answer's right there.

"I enjoyed Monster Zero more."

That's fine and there's nothing wrong with that, but it's irrelevant. You claimed "Monster Zero" had better fights than "Ghidrah" and that is just not the case at all.

"Godzilla was getting his ass kicked by Ghidorah easily."

This was the entire point of Ghidorah's creation-- that he was more powerful than all the earth's monsters. Godzilla charges at Ghidorah and Ghidorah has him on the ground in 30 seconds flat. Godzilla is not supposed to be able to hold his own against Ghidorah in this movie. The whole point is to show you how dire straights the earth is in and that's it's absolutely necessary that Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra work in tandem to overcome the monster. There is a reason that Toho's original international title for the movie was "Monster of Monsters, Ghidorah."

In "Monster Zero" the fights go nowhere because Godzilla and Rodan don't know how to handle Ghidorah by themselves. And as such, they are nowhere near as fun to watch. And far, far too brief.

I actually also prefer "Monster Zero" to "Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster". I just think it's more fun, and yes -I like that Nick Adams is in it. He does a great job, and I say this without any intent on diminishing the performances of the great Japanese actors. It's just that US actors in Kaiju movies can come off as kind of lackluster characters, but Adams is in it for a 100%.

Oh yeah, the victory jig. Great moments in kaiju history! It is memorable for being out of place in a supposedly serious film about space aliens using Godzilla & Rodan to protect themselves, and then later turning them on Japan as mind-controlled WMDs.

It's a crazy movie anyway, not what we generally consider serious SF. But that dance comes out of nowhere! But, it's in there and now it's classic stuff.

The kaiju fight with King Ghidorah was one of the better ones in the first run of movies. Despite the anthropomorphism, as a younger fan I liked how the monsters could adapt to an opponent instead of just doing the same thing. Maybe Godzilla earned his jig after all. :)

My childhood memory circuits just got kicked! :) (Smile) Much as I like "serious" Godzilla movies like the original "Godzilla" and newer "Shin Godzilla," there's a heartwarming note to the movies aimed at kids. This would be a great whimsical Godzilla poster for a child's room. :D (Big Grin)

To be honest, I have a harder time with the serious Godzilla movies, though I appreciate their intention. Maybe it will end up on the wall of somebody's kiddie room. I wouldn't mind that at all.

In the serious movies, I see Godzilla more as a force in nature, impersonal as a hurricane, while the more campy films do make him more of a character with personality.

I think the prime issue with most (not all) of the serious movies is that they aren't particularly good at what they try to be. Not all of them obviously. Gojira and Monster Zero and Terror of Mechagodzilla and GMK, and even the somewhat wibbly-wobbly Vs Biollante, have plenty going for them, but overall I find that the more serious a Godzilla movie tries to be, the more uneven and even kinda dry they are. People can sling crap at Godzilla vs the Sea Monster, Godzilla's Revenge, or Godzilla vs Megalon, but at least those movies succeed at what they try to do and offer good times for children and adults.

(Oh yeah, and I also have an easier time taking Godzilla's Revenge seriously than I do people who complain about it. But in general I tend to laugh at people who make a huge fuss out of children's media. XD)
