DVD Review - Godzilla: The Complete Animated Series

Rating: Not Rated


Monster fans are patiently waiting for the release of the remake of Godzilla, but until then they can't get sink their teeth into Mill Creek Entertainment's DVD release of Godzilla: The Complete Animated Series.

No, this isn't the 1978 Hanna-Barbera cartoon, but instead this is the 1998 animated series, which servers as a direct followup to the 1998 Godzilla flick that started Matthew Broderick. The film was a box-office hit at the time, but Godzilla's new look was criticized by critics and Godzilla fans alike. Nevertheless, the movie still spawned an animated series that lasted for only two seasons consisting of 40 episodes.

Picking up exactly where the 1998 film left off, Godzilla has been destroyed, but Dr. Nick Tatopoulos (voiced by Ian Ziering) is worried that a few of the creature's offspring has survived. Along with the Humanitarian Environmental Analysis Team (H.E.A.T.), Dr. Tatopoulos locates the last offspring, which the creature becomes emotionally attached to him. Nick becomes sorta like a adopted father to the new Godzilla.

Suddenly, there are strange giant monster reports all over the world. The only weapon that can protect Earth is Godzilla!

Review - Godzilla: The Half Century War

Godzilla: The Half Century War
By James Stokoe
Publisher: IDW
Pub. Date: June 4, 2013
ISBN-13: 978-1613775950


The newest Godzilla movie is currently filming and IDW will be releasing a paperback containing all the Godzilla: The Half Century War issues. I received an early copy in exchange for my honest review.

I was a big fan of the old campy Godzilla movies that aired on TNT on Saturday afternoons back in the 1990s. I even somewhat liked the 1998 Untied States version, which was a total flop. I wouldn't have thought that someone could make a comic book out of a giant lizard fighting other monsters, but IDW has somehow done it successfully.

The Half Century wars is seen from the eyes of a young solider who encounters Godzilla several times. The story takes places in all over Asia and other parts of the world as Godzilla isn't the only monster in this tale. Rodan, Kumonga, Mothra, and many other famous villains show up to chaos all over the road. Yes, the robot Godzilla even returns as the military tries everything to stop them, but their only hope lies with Godzilla!
