listen,this ridiculous notion that king kong won against Godzilla is ridiculous.1st of all the movie is what I call "kong in name only".how did kong become 164 feet tall from his usual 50 or 60 feet tall?? then he is given another magical power of being revived or made stronger from electricity?? cmon!!if people had ONLY seen the Japanese version of the movie you would have thought it was a tie and you know it.kong had to pop his head up because apes as far as I know can't live underwater.as far as I knew from the 2 previous G-man films,g-man lives in the ocean and sleeps in the ocean so when I finally saw the Japanese version I was shocked at how much Universal "screwed" G-man.adding all kinds of scenes and the worst most disgusting thing they did was purposely delete Godzilla's roar and just keep kongs roar and some dip*** saying "we all wish kong a safe trip home.neither kong or Godzilla in the Japanese version was a "good guy".they wanted them to destroy each other in the Japanese version so they could save their country!!! I don't cre what toho said!!!! they would have sold their mothers to make more kk vs Godzilla movies!!or more kong movies.plus of course they wanted to appease American audiences because that's whers toho was making their money!!! cmon think!!! the biggest reason this is even a discussion is because of that stupid Monsters! mag article saying "oh yeah the English version kong wins,the Japanese version G-man wins.that's what got this baloney going.actually and the people who run the website know this.originally toho had pretty much finished the film WITH GODZILLA KILLING KONG IN THE CLIFF SCENE!!!....FACT!!!.WHAT happens is kong falls off the cliff and G-man doesn't.then G-man blasts kong with his radiation blast and destroys kong(who is holding onto a tree growing on the outside of the cliff)that is a fact!!! you can see the pic for yourself.go to google images.put in "king kong vs Godzilla 1962" and about 6 rows down 3 pics from the left you will see a pic of G-man bending over and shooting his radiation beam at kong.its there literally in black and white.the pic is a vertical rectangular pic.universal said no to this version because they thought audiences in America would not like to see a Japanese monster beating their american ape w magical non-canon powers by the way being killed.kong was America's favorite overgrown ape.who always died.they also took out akira ifukubes soundscore because universal thought it was too "oriental" ha ha sounding.these are all facts.you unfortunately cannot get the Japanese version of kk vs Godzilla in America.if you buy the 60 dollar one from amazon imo your wasting your money because although it is the original Japanese version it has no English subs.but at least you can hear Godzilla's roar at the end.i just got my bluray Japanese version from showavideo.com.i had already had the original in dvd.it is the most altered and purposely "let's screw G-man at the end movie" out of the 29 toho movies ever!!!!.just because G-man doesn't pop his head up he loses??!! ha ha ok.he lives in the ocean!!!! hellooo.godzilla can fight pretty well underwater as seen in ebirah and in vs mothra 93.he fights Battra underwater and picks up Battra by the tail and slams him like 4 times on the ocean floor.plus as seen in said movie he can shoot his radiation blast underwater.how did kong supposedly kill G-man underwater??? did he give him an mma chokehold??cmon guys really!! Godzilla is "stealth" underwater.kong couldn't do ANYTHING ON LAND TO HURT GODZILLA BUT UNERWATER IN THE OCEAN HE KILLS GODZILLA??? HA HA RIGHT!!GODZILLA KICKS HIS A** ALL OVER THE PLACE IN THE MOVIE.when they 1st met what happened.Kong retreats.what happens until kongs made up non canon magical power kicks in?? G-man drop kicks him and then G-man pretty much has him for dead.then uhh ohhh magic time on a sunny day.kongs fake power comes in the form of an electrical storm which just happens to hit kong in the face 3 times and even then after that as Lazarus rises from the dead ha ha joke,he doesn't really even hurt G-man.but in Godzilla's realm:the ocean im supposed to believe kong killed G-man fighting underwater for 40 seconds while water is just gushing up kongs nose??? or is kong squeezing his nose and killing the "king of the monsters"with one hand.of course not.when kong finally pops his head up after 40 seconds(yes I counted) he looks like he is 30 miles out to sea making a beeline home.so I am supposed to believe that in 40 seconds kong kills Godzilla and then pops his head up 30 miles out to sea going straight home??? you can believe that.why do you think Universal altered the dialogue and added scenes at the end saying things like "Godzilla has disappeared without a trace" and then PURPOSELY DELETES GODZILLA'S ROAR??? HA HA YOU KNOW WHY.also toho got a break when they collaborated with Rankin/Bass.the creators of the king kong cartoon in the 60's.just about 3 or 4 years later the 160 or so feet tall kong HAS SHRUNK!!!!! WOW HE'S BACK TO BEING 60 FEET TALL?? WHAT HAPPENED?? HE ALSO HAS NO MAGICAL POWERS!!! AWWW POOR KONG.LISTEN IN ALL SERIOUSNESS THAT'S WHY I CALL THAT 62 MOVIE A "KONG IN NAME ONLY" MOVIE.THEY HAD TO GIVE KONG "MAGIC" TO EVEN BE ON THE SAME PLAYING FIELD AS G-MAN.GODZILLA HAS NEVER EVER BEEN KILLED BY ANOTHER MONSTER IN ANY TOHO MOVIE.HE MET HIS DEMISE IN DESTROYAH BECAUSE HIS "CORE"WAS MELTING.
