Discuss the 2nd Godzilla film era here! Beam fights, revised versions of classic kaiju, the Heisei era was a mixed bag of fun and controversy!

Kind of a long shot, but I had a boot sub of this on VHS which had a teaser for the upcoming "American Godzilla film". Does anyone have video of that teaser?

^Whoa, reminds me of the early teaser trailers for The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and Where the Wild Things Are that I've read about (haven't been able to find them online); both movies ended up spending years to actually get made after those teasers.

I'm sure it's already been said many times before, perhaps in this very thread and I've forgot, but there's a nice little synchronicity in this movie with the kaiju and mecha: while Godzilla's mechanical counterpart is, of course, Mechagodzilla, Garuda could be seen as Rodan's counterpart. Like Rodan and Godzilla, Garuda and Mechagodzilla are rivals, just in a different way. Both duos end up physically or spiritually fusing in the end to level up.

Is Baby Godzilla's counterpart that dinky pteranodon glider?

Listen, I said it was a bit of synchronicity, not a big bag full of synchronicity.

The adoration this movie gets 24 years later baffles me.

^I guess people just like the mecha element? In retrospect, Mecha King Ghidorah was far cooler in the ten minutes it had. Emmy was a far more likable pilot, too.

I mean, it's not terrible, but if I list the Heisie films in order of preference this film is squarely in the middle.
