Godzilla vs. Destoroyah
****
Billed as the "last" Godzilla movie, this movie is kind of a tear jerker. I know people have wrote me to say they cried at the end. But I look at this one as filled with hope for the future -- in spite of the sins of a man named Dean there may be more new real Godzilla movies in future so keep a brave heart.

Birth Island has disappeared! It has exploded and sunk into the sea. What has become of Little Godzilla? Is he dead? Where's Godzilla? Well, Godzilla is on his way to Hong Kong and he has a real real bad case of heartburn so his mood is fouler than usual. After stomping Hong Kong flat and setting everything ablaze with his breath, we find out that poor old Godzilla has absorbed too much radiation over the years and is headed for a meltdown! You got it... china syndrome. And even worse, if he blows up he could just take the whole world out with him!

What else is going on? Well there is this scientist who wants to revive the oxygen destroyer experiments of one Dr. Serizawa (remember him? from the very first Godzilla movie in 1954!). Uh oh looks like trouble ahead, yes indeedy do! Somehow the oxygen destroyer combines with some prehistoric bacteria and form a strange huge destructive (butt ugly) monster that is tearing up Tokyo and is constantly mutating, getting bigger by the minute, and has oxygen destroying breath. Call out the troops! Meanwhile G-Force is busy trying to figure out what to do about the Godzilla situation. Then some idiot comes up with a brilliant idea -- get the Destroyer and Godzilla to fight in Tokyo! Oh yeah that's it! I want front row seats!

Little Godzilla is not dead after all. It turns out he has survived the demise of Birth Island and he has now grown up to be Godzilla Junior (geesh!) and now G-Force wants use him to get Godzilla to Tokyo by sending him to fight the Destroyer first! Yikes! Destroyer makes short work of Junior who gets killed. Now Papa shows up and his heartburn has gotten worse, his son has been killed, and he is totally pissed off! Can Big-G defeat the Destroyer? What about Junior? What about the world? Even if G wins that little heart problem he has could spell the end of world anyway!

OH, YEAH! I loved this movie! Lots of cheesy pseudo-science, big monsters destroying everything in site, Japan in ruins, and the Super-X3! This movie is a grand wrap up to the entire Godzilla series and, not to spoil here, but the way it ended you know damn well that there will be more Real Godzilla movies from Toho in the future.
