I've only gotten through a couple more so far.

Invasion of Astro-Monster was definitely more of the silly campy monster movie I was expecting from this franchise...I loved it!

I'm having a hard time finding a free copy of Ebirah, Horror of the Deep and Son of Godzilla, so I may have to abandon my original plan of going through every movie in order. I'm probably going to skip ahead and check out Godzilla (2014), I'm still the most excited for that one.

Invasion of the Astro-Monster/Godzilla X Monster Zero ended up being a real treat for me because I didn't ever see the movie until after I saw episodes of The Rebel on television. Nick Adams is the actor that plays the American in the movie and in The Rebel he's a man named Johnny Yuma roaming the country side with a sawed off shotgun doing cowboy shit. The entire time I watched Monster Zero, I couldn't help but imagine Nick Adams character was an astronaut Johnny Yuma.

You're starting to get to the point where the Showa era starts to let loose a bit more and have more fun. It's honestly been so long since I've seen either Godzilla X Ebirah or Son of Godzilla that I don't remember much of either. They're all fun in their own way though. Lots of people really enjoy Godzilla's Revenge and Godzilla X Hedorah just because they're pretty wild departures from your regular films.

So, out of curiosity, do you have a favorite monster yet?
