I think a Tezuka GFW would be just as bad/worse than the one we got.

I'm not a fan of the guy at all, honestly.

I think it'd be worse. It'd be a bunch of boring characters instead of the so bad they're great bunch of weirdos we got in the actual film.

Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

So, I'm still rather new to Godzilla films as a whole. I've seen a handful so far and this is the first time I've seen Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla. And I gotta say that I rather enjoyed it. It may not have the deepest plot ever, but it moved along at a good pace. There weren't many lull points in the movie so it was easier to follow from beat to beat. Most of the characters seemed rather likable, especially Tokumitsu. He was a fun character to watch throughout.

I don't have much knowledge as to the many differences between the Godzilla suits over the years as well as how emotive he can be at times, but I didn't have a problem with the suit in this movie. It was definitely aggressive throughout which I guess is different than some of the other versions I've seen. I'm sure my opinion may change as I see more films, but for right now, I liked the design. And as far as MechaGodzilla goes, I really liked his design. I've seen the first movie and I thought it was cool, but this was definitely a step up for me. Have yet to see the '93 film yet though. That will happen.

But, DEM MINIATURES! There were so many cool shots in this movie. I know its a standard in the franchise but it never ceases to amaze me the amount of detail put into these films. The shot of Mecha just waltzing through a tall building had me in awe of the amount of work that went into that take. Shots like this elevated the movie quite a bit. I'm gonna watch it again just to get a better feel of it, but my first impression is that it was a fun ride. Not the greatest Godzilla movie I've seen so far, but definitely a good one.

I've not heard many complaints regarding Godzilla's design in this film...more his execution. There's a static quality to the projectile effects. It was meant to make Godzilla seem invulnerable and immovable, but it comes across as poorly staged.

I was never a huge fan of the suit, but I didn't really see any problem with it. Although the silver spines seemed boring in comparison to the original purple ones.

I just gave this movie another viewing last night. This is indeed one of my favorites of the millennium films. Here are my pros and cons of this movie:

PROS
1. Mechagodzilla's design is a vast improvement over the hesei version. While the showa version will always be my favorite, this was a good balance between showa and hesei.
2. I agree with everyone that the miniatures are among the best, if not THE best of the millennium films. Godzilla's attack on the village in the intro was absolutely beautiful, the miniatures were so stunning! I loved how during the storm you could even see the trees and electric cables moving as a result of the wind. And also when MG walks through the building, you could actually see the office furniture inside of the building! Wow!
3. I really connected well with the main characters, to me they felt very human. Although I did wish Akane and Dr. Yuhara got together at the end of the movie, they would've made a nice couple LOL.

CONS:
1. My only real complaint with the movie itself is that I wish they did more with Kiryu as a character. Since the thing was made from Godzilla's bones I felt they had a lot of potential to do so much more instead of treating it as just another monster for Godzilla to fight. I loved how Kiryu turned on humanity, I just wish they would've explore that more. Tokyo SOS didn't do much with it either.
2. FInally, I wish they could've come up with a better title than Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla. I realize this is the US title, but I wish they could've been a little more creative. Maybe Godzilla Vs. Kiryu? I mean he's referred to more as Kiryu than Mechagodzilla, so it makes more sense to me.
