Top Ten Godzilla Movies with the Best Openings

The Top Ten

1 Godzilla: Final Wars

Best godzilla movie ever!

What happens after final wars. bum bum bum!

I.Love.This.Opening. Godzilla is fighting the Gotengo ( a flying drill ship) in a snow storm in the artic. he is trapped in the ice by missiles. The film tells us that humans with special abilities are found ( Mutants) and brought into a team to battle earths monsters and the number 1 threat-Godzilla. Then an amazing montage of previous Godzilla movies is shown with killer music and leads us into showing Godzilla in the ice. - RustyNail

2 Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla

Flashback of the original Godzilla rampage in 1954- cut to the present, a new Godzilla is attacking a village. Our main character Akane is fighting in a Maser/laser tank at Godzilla. The tank is badly damaged and backs it up in fear, which pushes a jeep of fellow comrads off a cliff. Godzilla steps on them, killing them. - RustyNail

3 Godzilla vs Megaguirus

A flashback shows Godzilla destroying japan in search of nuclear energy ( which is what he feeds on). In the present, Kiriko and her military squad is fighting Godzilla with rocket launchers ( because that will work). He kills all of her squad and kills her commander- who saves Kiriko before getting killed. Kiriko is beside herself and is inraged, fires one more missile at him as the title pops up. - RustyNail

4 Gojira

It's a legendary monster movie- although not my favourite Godzilla movie of all time, I openly admit this one is THE BEST.

A fishing boat is destroyed by a bright flash of light with the ocean bubbling. This is a reference to the Lucky Dragon Disaster- which happened less than a year before this movie was released. It's a haunting scene. - RustyNail

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

Comander Taizo Tachibana tells a room of fellow military personal that Godzilla returning after the original 1954 attack is possible ( it nods to the 98 Godzilla movie as well, a cool touch) A sub goes missing a search party happens. Blue spines in the ocean is seen before our title card. - RustyNail

6 Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla

In the darkness of monster island, Anguirus is walking about and roars a bunch before the energetic and explosive title card sequence - RustyNail

7 Godzilla 2000: Millennium

My favourite of the Millennium series- Godzilla's new design is fantastic (also my favourite), Takehiro Murata returns, and Takayuki Hattori's score is brilliant. I love Godzilla 2000!

The Godzilla Prediction Network is tackin the big G, who shows up and tarts destroying things. The GPN comes face to face with him and Godzilla chases them. - RustyNail

8 Godzilla vs Destroyah

Miki finds godzillas home island destroyed and no Godzilla to be found. Godzilla shows up in hong kong with red glowing markings on his body - RustyNail

9 Godzilla vs Mothra Battle for Earth

A meteor hits an island, which wakes up Godzilla, battra and frees mothras egg - RustyNail

10 Destroy All Monsters

A voice over tells us that all of earths monsters have been captured and put on monsterland, and can't escape -before aliens let them loose and take control - RustyNail
