Godzilla! I still have something to settle with you!

Gojira vs. Supesugojira (Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla) is directed by Kenshô Yamashita and written by Kanji Kashiwa, Hiroshi Kashiwabara and Shinichirô Kobayashi. It stars Megumi Odaka, Jun Hashizume, Zenkichi Yoneyama and Akira Emoto. Music is by Takayuki Hattori and cinematography by Masahiro Kishimoto.

Godzilla faces two new foes, Mogera - a UN built giant robotic machine, and Space Godzilla - a beast spawned from Godzilla's particles in space...

Oh how nutty it is, here we have part of what is known as the Heisei period of "Zilla" movies, and it's utterly bonkers. Is it meant to be a comedy, serious, thrown together quickly to make some money? Who knows? Who cares? Very divisive in Godzilla fan circles (totally understandable), pic throws a number of action series staples at the piece, slots in Godzilla's kid (a goofy looking Godzuki monstrosity), and pitches the moody big lizard against two foes that creates ultimate fire and destruction mayhem.

Godzilla stomps the city of course, all while trying to keep out the telekinetic skills of the yummy Miki Saegusa (Odaka). There's some truly great matte shots in the mix, mad science, a nifty score that the likes of Williams and Barry wouldn't be ashamed of, and a traditional laser show of a finale smackdown. It's not great, in fact it's pretty dumb and maybe even lazy, but there is merit here for entertainment purpose. So strap yourself in, leave the brain at the door and enjoy the colourful carnage, it's trippy man! 6/10

Wow, this movie looks action packed! Very Happy

But I still think Godzilla is a very badly designed monster.

I mean, heck . . . if an amateur artist like me can sketch something like this just for fun, shouldn't professional filmmakers be able to do better? Confused

I'm going to be watching Gojira vs. Desutoroiâ (1995) this week - which I'm led to believe is one of the best from this "Zilla" period.

Let monster mayhem and colourful delights commence!

So sorry my good man, I thought you were yanking my chain. So that's your own work, I think it's triffick, seriously. Didn't know you were artistically inclined.

Superb sketching!
