Ranking the Monsters: Godzilla (1954)

Calvin and Stephen start their kaiju quest with the king of the monsters himself: Godzilla. Or is it Gojira? Let Stephen take you through the fascinating history that led to a titan of international cinema, and then enjoy a wide ranging discussion on the original film and its re-edited international versions. You may be familiar with the American cut (Godzilla, King of the Monsters!, 1956) but do you know about the fever dream that is Cozzilla, the 1977 Italian edit? Also, do you know how these films stack up against official-kaiju-ranking-science? Well, it’s time to find out!

Join kaiju-superfan Stephen and kaiju-curious Calvin as they watch and rank every monster movie ever made. RanKing of Monsters is a brave attempt to finally answer that age old question: what is the best kaiju movie? Each episode focuses on a movie, or two, as the pair take monster cinema far too seriously, and not seriously at all, in equal measure. Come for some sincere film criticism and stay for two pals chatting nonsense about actors in rubber suits.
