With Godzilla, there were some films that were hits, and some that just, well... didn't do so good. Gojira was the start of the series, we've all seen Godzilla vs King Kong, Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla and Godzilla vs Destoroyah were some of the more popular of the Heisie series.
But, there were some that didn't do good that we all like.
Godzilla vs SpaceGodzilla
Godzilla vs Megaguirus
Godzilla vs The Fire Monster (not a failure, but not talked about so much)
Godzilla vs Boillante (human DNA was... er... strange, but, it is Toho....), but, I still enjoyed it)
Oh guys! Since I got Netflix now, I saw All Monsters Attack and it was great! Cool film. I guess I don't hate it because I haven't seen the other films first, and the kiddy stuff doesn't bother me at all. But I must admit, I was laughing when Minilla started talking. I forgot to add it to the films I've watched on my page. I'll have to see Terror of MechaGodzilla next! When I'm done with the kaiju infoboxes and stuff, I'll take screenshots of all the Godzilla films on Netflix (which all are films I haven't seen [Showa era ones], and I also finally saw the 1956 Gojira with that Burr guy.
With all due respect, how in the world is Final Wars "underrated"? It had the most monsters of the entire franchise, featured Godzilla defeating 11 monsters in one day, destroying an entire meteor with one stream of atomic breath, gaining infinite power, AND it commemorated Godzilla's 50th anniversary.
Easily the most underrated film in the franchise is Terror of MechaGodzilla. It is such a great film and one that was a great way to end both the Showa series and Ishrio Honda's involvement with the franchise.

No, not really. Alot of the showa Godzilla films were'nt directed by Honda. Most were by Fukuda. Also, since the late '50s, Tsuburaya refused to add gore to the films. If anything...the reason the films became more lighthearted was Fukuda and Tsuburaya.
