King Kong vs Godzilla

Japan King Kong vs Godzilla (キングコング対ゴジラ) 1962

I finally located a copy of the Japanese version of this movie. It makes slightly more sense but not enough to redeem it. It’s a romp, not at all serious. Apparently this is the Godzilla movie that’s most popular amongst regular people. I never cared for this movie. I have grown to appreciate it, but the dumb subplots bother me. And King Kong seemed ancient and sleazy by the 1960s when this movie was made.

Some fun special effects, such as they are, great music. Don’t expect too much and you won’t be too disappointed.
