Now this is epic...

Love both, but Godzilla has always been my favorite movie monster.

Now this is a classic showdown. East vs West, Reptile vs Mamal, Science Fiction vs Adventure. Ah........ sweet nostalgia. Both films are great in differnt ways; Gojira (I refuse to call it by anyother name) is an allegory for nuclear war and its potential for golbal destruction. With very fine performances, moral ambiguity, and intense camera work that makes one shutter at a man in a rubber suit, Gojira is not just a classic monster film, but rather a classic foriegn film on par with Animal Farm (1954). King Kong, on the other hand, revolutionized cinema with groundbreaking sepcial effects, fantastic score, and one of the greatest climaxs of all time. While yes the acting is sometimes typical 1930's Hollywood and dialogue dated, this film has gone on to be one of the best popcorn films of all time. As good as Gojira is, King Kong will always have a soft spot in my heart for years to come. King Kong wins, in this match up and in King Kong vs. Godzilla.

I actually like Godzilla movies more when they started cranking up the cheesiness to obscene levels and they started getting technically "worse". King King doesn't do much for me either. One of those cases where I can see why the movies are "important", but that doesn't motivate me much.

Kong may be King but he's not God.

Finally watched Gojira. Gotta say I expected more. Kong is a better creature feature of the "time".

I love Godzilla more, and his first movie is obviously a masterpiece, but King Kong is King Kong. King Kong showed us what movies could be, adventure, fantasy, amazing special effects, full booming score, And excellent pacing. Both are among the greatest, and even though I like Godzilla more then Kong as characters and franchises, Kong ‘33 is obviously better. .

Godzilla is always concurred to be actual among favored characteristic rather than King Kong here..
