The farmer bit is great. I love the music over the credits. It sounds like lethargic lift muzak. Just a little crowning touch.

Just saw this MST3Ked.


Freezing tongue? That has to be one of the cooler kaiju powers.

Watched this with Gfan commentary: "This Godzilla wouldn't karate kick."
Good stuff/info on this DVD (not the BD just described by LL).

or as the original American titles read (because Mothra is the name of the island here):



Mothra's my favorite (with the possible exception of the big G himself) kaiju. And the shobijin(tiny singing twins; here played by "The Peanuts") are in top form in this early one. Appropriately enough, this is directed by Ishiro Honda himself (director of both the original Godzilla and Mothra).

Watched the American (dubbed) version of Mothra (1961) with historical commentary. These guys confirmed what I suspected: there was a group of Western-looking actors living in Tokyo that Toho (and others) called on for all their non-Japanese parts.

Have to watch the original (subtitled) version on this Netflix disc yet.

"She" is my favorite (with the possible exception of Godzilla himself). I think that's because she's the only always-good one and because of the tiny twins.

Moth. She's also an inch worm!



Not sure if that's the first destruction of Tokyo tower, but you think they'd stop bothering to rebuild it at some point. All the monsters head straight for it.

BTW: you could always go with Battra, kind of the bad@$$ version of Mothra.

The 'American' version of Godzilla vs. Mothra (as Space Cop has already mentioned).

Mothra can live in space. Godzilla cannot, Mothra can also live in the sea. Point goes to the eternal, divine Mothra.

Note: Ghidorah still wins over all.

And on that note, let's all sing the Mothra song. You don't know the words:

+ YouTube Video

sfw if he can live in space; wtf is out there? NOT A DAMN THING.

fact: when Godzilla shows up ppl go "oh shit, we're dead!", and when Mothra appears ppl go "oh, look at the pretty little thing.."

point: Godzilla

Yeah, if giant Kaiju aren't destroying it, they are fighting on it. Like with King Kong and Mechani-Kong in King Kong Escapes.
