Ranking the Monsters: Godzilla Raids Again (1955) & Gamera: The Giant Monster (1965)

How do you follow up on 1954’s Godzilla? Moreover, how do you capitalise on 1954’s Godzilla? In this episode, Stephen and Calvin take on this question, exploring two different responses. On one hand, we have 1955’s direct sequel to GodzillaGodzilla Raids Again — a cynical cash grab (with an interesting production story). On the other hand you have another studio trying to make their own Godzilla: 1965’s Gamera: The Giant Monster. These films are two different answers to the same question, divergent results that make for one interesting discussion.

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.
