I fully disagree with the comments about Tokyo SOS. Say what you want about the characters, but the movie definitely feels connected to GxMG and in some ways, surpasses it with its treatment of Godzilla.

Even regarding the much-praised effects, while, yes, the miniatures are nicely detailed, the lighting really doesn't do much to sell a sense of scale, so it mostly ends up looking like 2 meter tall monsters walking around in really detailed miniature cities.

Honda wasn't given any more time than Tezuka was...the time constraint thing isn't a valid excuse when you're comparing him against a guy who worked under just as strict (and often stricter) time deadlines.

As for Ghidrah being a sequel to MvsG...the continuity is so slight, they don't function as a pair of movies, imho. I think I saw them out of order and never was remotely confused. If one were to see Tokyo SOS prior to GxMG, it'd feel like there was something missing. So, my issue with it there still exists: it doesn't really feel like a full-on sequel, but it also doesn't stand on its own. It exists in this weird world semi-unto-itself and yet handcuffed to the previous movie in all the wrong ways.

I understand the general low ranking of Godzilla vs. Mothra '92, but it always surprises me to see it ranked that low.

Much like how Tokyo SOS takes a few cues too many from Mothra and Mothra vs. Godzilla, BFE is such a blatant, half-hearted remake of Mothra's debut film that it frustrates me greatly - even more so, having followed the solid Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah and the great Godzilla vs. Biollante. Everything from the writing to the effects just screams "LAAAAAAAAZZZZZZY".
...Except Battra. Battra's cool - although again, effects and writing do him in. Why was he relevant to this film, anyway? For that matter, how was Godzilla relevant? :?

I find it ironic that this film, as well as Mechagodzilla '93 and Destroyah (and SOS, for that matter), dominated my favorites list years ago; yet now I can barely stand them.

There was a time when Mechagodzilla '93 seemed to dominate almost every favorites list. I don't think I've seen another movie in the series take such a fall in fan opinion.

^I can very much get behind your Heisei ranking. I basically have RoG, Biollante and GvsKG on a shared top tier for the era, but the other four I'd pretty have descending as you do.
