Godzilla vs Podcast Zero - Godzilla vs King Ghidorah (1991) - Ryan Hitchcock
Tuesday June 25th 2019
We take a deep look at Godzilla vs King Ghidorah this week with writer and comedian Ryan Hitchcock. Ryan picked a movie that should handily make every Godzilla top 10 list: the 1991 Godzilla vs King Ghidorah. The movie takes place in the distant year 1992–and was shot in 1991! This movie is bonkers, with references to Back to the Future II, Terminator, Stephen Spielberg and Close Encounters.
The dialogue in this movie was some of the best/worst I’ve heard in anything and it has to be heard to be believed. While this movie sounds like it’s bad on paper, the sum of its parts definitely adds up to more than its whole. The miniatures are incredible, the fight scenes well-choreographed, the special effects are pretty decent, and you also see an appearance of Mecha King Ghidorah! The puppetry and costumes are incredible in this one.
Here’s some more amazing art from Thomas Perkins, with the Elemental Daikaiju Pegasodaro inspired by Betsy Sodaro’s episode 1998 Godzilla!

Keep that artwork coming!
Jay Hasrajani watched the fight scenes from this movie on YouTube and noted how violent they were. He also thought this movie was nonsense, based on the scenes he saw. Most of the fight scenes are on YouTube, definitely check them out. Thanks Jay!
