Great Scenes – GODZILLA VS. MEGALON

Now here’s a few somethings you don’t see every day: 1.) giant monsters working together in a complicated tactical formation, 2.) the same tail-skating you see in common lizards in nature, but this time on a grand scale, and 3.) gleeful fist-pumping enthusiasm from a legendary kaiju. Unquestionably one of the lowlights from the entire franchise, the above scene comes from ‘s 1973 Gojira tai Megaro. Notice the subtle way robot Jet Jaguar invites Godzilla to take another flying drop kick at Megalon. And notice that for some reason the kaiju are battling atop the World Trade Center in the US release poster, no doubt to tap into the popularity of producer Dino De Laurentiis‘ King Kong (1976).
