“This one is considered one of the best Godzilla movies out there, but with that aside, Iu0026#39;ve been wanting to see this movie, and after finally getting around to watching it, itu0026#39;s actually pretty good. I mean, itu0026#39;s not extraordinary, but itu0026#39;s still worth watching.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut now on with the plot: long story short, Mothrau0026#39;s egg washes on the beach and some corporate businessman wants to buy the egg just so he can put it up as an attraction in his amusement park. Two twin faeries show up and warn him to have the egg returned, but he ignores them and even tries to capture them. In the meantime, a news reporter, news photographer, and professor also find out about it and are determined to help the faeries and Mothra before anything bad happens to the egg. Later, Godzilla naturally comes along and interferes, leading to a serious grudge war between the two title monsters.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy thoughts/defenses on this movie: okay, so the monster battles arenu0026#39;t great, but theyu0026#39;re certainly not disappointing at all. In fact, the idea of Mothra against Godzilla apparently did sound like a step in the right direction for Toho, in my opinion. Yes, I know Godzilla is such a klutz in this movie, aside from the fact that his mouth is kinda wobbly in this one, but we certainly canu0026#39;t blame him u0026#39;cause the guy in the Godzilla costume canu0026#39;t see a thing. Okay, so the ending isnu0026#39;t very climactic, but it still leaves you with a good feeling.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn conclusion, this is one Godzilla movie that I think that all Godzilla fans should give a try/give a chance.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eP.S. To all those who think this movie is bad or overrated, I strongly disagree.”
