Godzilla's Revenge

Godzilla's Revenge is one of the most hated and detested films in the series.  The film was aimed towards a younger audience and it shows.  It stars a young boy named Ichiro who is tormented by bullies.  He is in a constant state of day dream where he imagines himself in the fantastic land of Monster Island.  Monster Island is the home of the King of The Monsters, Godzilla, and his son Minilla.  Being the son of Godzilla one might think that Minilla would be a bad ass, but instead he's a wimp who gets harassed by the bigger monster  Gabbera.  Of course Ichiro and Minilla become fast friends and try to help each other overcome their problems.

Minilla receives pointers on being a bad ass from his father.  While trying to perform his radiation breath he can only blow smoke rings until his father steps on his tail causing him to unleash the full force of his radiation breath.  With the help of his father and Ichiro Minilla is finally able to defeat his bully Gabbera.

Ichiro takes what he's learned on Monster Island to the mean streets of Tokyo where he overcomes his problems, and defeats his bully as well.  Just like Minilla he earns the respect of his peers and the movie ends with Ichiro going on to become their leader and then proceeds to harass a man painting a sign, what a bad ass!

Yes this movie is aimed for little kids, but I love it.  I guess I'm just biased because I love anything Godzilla.  His roar is actually my ringtone. My favorite part of the film is when Ichiro returns to monster island and sees his chum.  He walks over and asks
 "Hi Minilla what ya doin?"
 "Oh nothin just being lonely because I don't have any friends."  Now my second favorite line from a Godzilla film.

I almost fell off the couch laughing.  This movie has quite a few monster fights as well.  Including Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster Eberah the giant lobster!

IF you want a fun Godzilla film to watch this is one of the best.  Watch the full film on Netflix.
