Top Ten Godzilla Movies with the Best Openings


The Top Ten

1 Godzilla: Final Wars

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

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
