Greatest Godzilla Movies


The Top TenXW

1Godzilla: Final Wars

Looking at this list nearly made me hurl. The original 1954 version needs to by higher, Godzilla: King of Monsters needs to be lower, and Godzilla 1998 needs to be taken off this list because it is a horrible abomination and I do not consider it at all a Godzilla movie. You voters have shamed me, Japan, and all true Godzilla fans across the globe. Shame on you!

You people sucks about liking the 1998 Godzilla, the real Japanese Godzilla is WAY, WAY, WAY better than your iguana monster.

A good Godzilla movie. Not my favorite, but definitely in the top five. Pretty good fights and we actually can see people fighting instead of scientists babbling in room. - DarthZilla

I really all the monsters fight to the death is really cool

2Godzilla (1954)

Even though Godzilla 2000 is my favorite Godzilla movie This deserves to be 1st place.

It created the whole genre as well as popularizing it, having a subtle plot and message and is possibly better than King Kong (1933).

Everyone's grossest Godzilla movie in history

3Godzilla (2014)

Finally saw it last night and it's absolutely WAY better than 1998 Godzilla. That's what Godzilla is supposed to look like, a real Japanese Godzilla.

Just got back from the theatre, and while it isn't the best it needs to be in the top ten.

This movie will be really awesome! Can't wait to see it

This is my Favorite Godzilla Movie because this movie shows Godzilla as on of humanity's Allies and this was the second Godzilla movie the USA made and it crunches 1998 Godzilla out of the fray.

4Godzilla Vs. Destoroyah

This is the best Godzilla film ever! Godzilla is burning in his core, about to destroy the world, and Destoroyah proves a tough challenge for him. And at the end, Godzilla dies!

5Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack

Godzilla never looked more ominous than he did in this action pack monster thriller. The camera angles and shots are perfect, especially when he first appears rising out of the water while sky pummeling a fishing boat that had the most unfortunate luck of being nearby. Godzilla was most devastating and terrifying as he took on The Guardian Monsters and the Japanese military in a all out war!

It had some problems but overall, it has awesome speacil effects, and cool fights.

One of the few films that challenges the original in my opinion.Also Ghost Godzilla eats souls,and King Ghidorah,Mothra,and Baragon are pretty much gods.

6Godzilla King of the Monsters

If this counts as Gojira, than yes, it should be number 1. Gojira is dark, depressing, and shows what Hiroshima and Nagasaki were like for the Japanese. Great movie. - TheFrodo

The American one is NOT tougher than the Japanese one. In Final Wars, Godzilla defeats the American one in 10 seconds. This movie has a dark tone to it, making it a bit scary.
But I love it!

How a million years is the awful Godzilla 1998 even in the top 10 let alone spot 2, come on G fans we need to stop this - willz124

It's got a good Plot and awesome fights!

The very first Godzilla movie I ever watch, and one of the best in my opinion.

8Godzilla 2000

Not the greatest Godzilla movie, but why is it lower than 1998? I'm not trying to hate or anything, but this movie was literally made to remind fans of who the REAL Godzilla was after 1998 was a major box office fail. Also, just a lil side note... This is my 3rd favorite Godzilla look, 2nd being the Yuji Sakai version of G2000, and 1 being the 2014 Godzilla.

11King Kong vs. Godzilla

This was the first Godzilla movie I ever saw, and I invited a lot of my friends to see it with me. Even though some of the fight scenes were a little cheesy, I liked the plot. I also enjoyed some of the fight scenes too. But I heard there were two endings. In the USA King Kong won and in Japan Godzilla won. But I heard it was fake though. Godzilla movies I want to see with the new Godzilla is:

Godzilla vs king kong remake

Godzilla vs pacific rim robots

Godzilla vs mechagodzilla remake

Godzilla vs King gidorah remake (the 1991 version)

Son of Godzilla remake

Destroy all monsters remake

It was the most exciting movie and had awesome fights but Godzilla should have won.

Great monster fight, on my top three godzilla films. voted for to beat godzilla 1998

I hate this movie!

12Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster

I think this movie is better then Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991) because the Ghidorah in there does not focus on tradition and Ghidorah in there might be the weakest I have ever seen. While this movie introduces the most powerful monster Toho created in a movie that lives up to its name.

Ever since I was 12 or 13 I have loved this movie both for its abundance in monsters and comedic fight scenes. - DarthZilla

13Mothra vs. Godzilla

The reason I feel this was such a good movie was because it brings to big Toho monsters together to fight each other. It's also the start of one Godzilla's biggest rivals throughout his franchise.

This movie was very fun to watch with my freinds, it has a great story

14Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla (1974)
15Godzilla vs. Biollante

This is a very smart movie that retains its excellent dark tone from its excellent predecessor and increases the stakes and entertains all ages

16Godzilla vs Destroyah
17Destroy All Monsters

Good movie, it's kind of like the older final wars

18Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla IIV3 Comments
19Godzilla Vs Biollante

This film is highly underrated. The monster scenes are great and biollante is badass.

Biollante is the greatest monster in Gojira!
