This was first reviewed here a couple of years ago and that was when I last saw it. Now I decided to kick off a mini series of Godzilla reviews with this more time.

This has been hailed as one of the worst Godzilla movies of the 70's and I used to agree. However, over the years of watching this film I have grown more and more fond of it.

Alien cockroaches have come to Earth with the intent of taking over and they enlist the help of Ghidorah and Gigan to do just that.

The aliens use human disguises and are deceiving people by working on a monster theme park for children, which is actually a head quarters. Angorus and Godzilla come from monster island to fight the aliens and their monsters.

There is a ton of stock footage from other Godzilla films and that kind of hurts the movie if you've seen any other Godzilla movies. The alien sub plot is good and I like the idea of alien roaches.

The monsters are all cool, especially Gigan who makes his debut here. The actual title foe the film was "Godzilla Vs. Gigan" but it was changed for US release. The Blu-ray is stunning and much better than this film has ever looked.

This is something I would recommend to Godzilla fans only, but still a fun film, even if it has the infanous moments when Godzilla and Angorus actually talk!! Check it out.

Tomorrow I will be looking at one of two Godilla Blu-ray that I haven't discussed here before in that format.
