    Japanese Monster Flicks!

    Remember those black and white Japanese monster flicks from the 50s and 60s? What was your favorite and why?

    The only ones I remember were the Gamera ones, particularly Versus the Moth. They were on late at night on SBS (the 'alternative' / world channel). I love the 'movie magic' in regards to the monsters' size.

    Gamera was always the best!

    Why? : because he's a giant flying Turtle.. HELLO!

    Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster. It has Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and of course Ghidorah, surely one of the coolest monsters ever created.

    Gojira. The one and only Godzilla makes his first appearance.

    Godzilla Final Wars. Not in color but the movie is a hoot to watch. It seems like every single Toho monster makes an appearance.

    I loved Gamera too. I think my favorite movie was when he fought the aliens that had spaceship that were striped like a yellowjacket.

    I also like the Mothra movies with the twin little people who (if I remember correctly) were kept in a bird cage and sang to Mothra.

    I loved them all! Rodan and especially Mothra were my faves, with the twin sisters always singing to lull Mothra (and me) to sleep, lol!
    Then I moved on to anime robots shows like Voltes 5. icon_biggrin.gif

    Loved these movies as a kid and always remember the Godzilla marathon the day after Thanksgiving on Channel 9 in NYC

    anything with the Ghidra the 3 headed monster.

    I have a Godzilla dvd boxed set with like 8 movies.

    Favorite one might be Godzilla vs the Smog Monster...very 60s kitschy theme song about pollution called "Save the Earth"
