GODZILLA VS BIOLLANTE

Another favorite of mine. This was an interesting experience for me because of the fact it debuted on HBO around 1991. I remember having to go to my uncles house to watch it (as we didnt' have HBO at that time :cry: ) and it was a blast from start to finish.

It was a relief for me when I saw the montage of Godzilla 1985 playing at the start cuz that told me Godzilla didn't die in that firey pit (that I used to interpret as being hell when I was liil haha :evil: ) I remember being intrigued by the new monster Biollante and the new Super X 2 vessel.

Then I remember I had to wait a while before this got a VHS release (I remember looking it up at suncoast to order one time shortly after its HBO debut and it was marked at being almost $50 retail :eek: [not lying/no bs])

Anyways, jumping to the present, this film still has a soft spot for me. Great story, lots of innovation to the series, and yet it still kept the classic feel of godzilla we all love :D .

The human characters though come off as being a bit dull in their performances. The only worthwhile character I liked was Miki's obviously in her debut of the Godzilla series. Everything else was just meh.

Special effects/Opticals were really top notch for the time.Music . . . can you say SUPERMAN / JAWS rip offs hahaha :lol: nahhh jk as similar as it sounds to John Williams, I love it. I would like to think this is how Williams would score a G-film anyways ;).

The monsters are extremely detailed, esp the many suits/props of Godzilla. Biollante was def something new on the table and worked quite well. The battles though did leave "a bit" more to be desired from me. Godzilla just shoots his ray constantly without barely doing anything else. I mean sure Biollante is pretty much 2wice Godzilla's size so punches/kicks/tail whacks won't really do much. The ray shooting just got a bit old after awhile. Also I wished the final battle went on a bit longer but thats just a minor nitpick. Overall it ended good.

The Super X 2 is another element I really like (and my favorite SuperX out of all of them (or maybe it was the theme haha)). I will say the fire mirror was a very creative weapon against Godzilla. It seemed to do ok for a bit but then backfired. In the end though, Godizlla is still the King of them Monsters ;).

Another thing I love is the military vs Godzilla near the end in the rain. Next to Godzilla vs The Thing, this is another one of Godzillas greatest battles against humans. Great angles, pyrotechnics, new maser tanks. Just awesome :twisted: .

I'll end it here by saying this is definitely one of my better favorites of the heisie series. I only hope that this and 1985 are on the horizon of a re-release soon . . . . :idea:

I wish Godzilla films would do more of that sort of thing. I want to see elaborate plans to capture Godzilla (ala King Kong) in future Godzilla films.

I never thought seeing Shiragami get killed was a major jaw-dropper...I mean, it kind of is, because how often does a main character die in a Godzilla film? but at the same time, we distinctly see the saradian prime minister or whoever that guy is putting out the hit

Shirigami's death surprised me as a kid. Yeah, there's the line "Yes...Dr. Shirigami, he's the one." but it always struck me as a clever kind of thing, because it's plainly stated but with all the stuff that goes on after that it gets pushed to the back of your mind. Then you're kind of like "Oh yeah.." As a kid, I tended to not notice it and it was just like "ZOMG, THEY SHOT HIM." God I love Godzilla vs. Biollante. This makes me want to re-watch it.
