Ranking the Monsters: Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972) & Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973)

Jun Fukuda presents two new versus movies for the Monster Rankings: the kaiju theme park movie Godzilla vs. Gigan, which introduces us to the hook-handed monster, and Godzilla vs. Megalon, wherein Godzilla and Megalon are not so much the point as the totally-not-a-kaiju creation of Jet Jaguar. Neither are spectacular examples of big-scaled monster action but both have their moments and identities that may secure their placement in the kaiju arena. It’s been a while… and yet the promise for the future remains potent, so stay strong kaiju friends, the work’s not done, and there remain so many monsters left to rank in the future. Until then, read good books and avoid traffic accidents.
