Giant monster movie list
What are Kaiju?
The word Kaiju comes directly from Japanese, as it means strange beast or giant beast. This word gave rise to a genre that penetrated deeply into Japanese culture, giving life to a series of beasts that their fans still have today. The greatest exponent of this genre is undoubtedly Godzilla, but before Godzilla other monsters came to the big screen, since in The Lost World (1925) it was possible to enjoy the first monster movie as such.
However, the king is the king.
It all starts in 1954
The first Godzilla movie featured the famous Japanese monster in 1954, and since then, the franchise has released no less than 36 movies, with the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong that will arrive on March 25. Obviously the years have weighed on it, but it is still a classic that must be taken into account to understand the magnitude that the monster has reached (and not only in size, but also).
Giant monster movies
Terrifying giant beings appear from the depths of the sea and unleash a series of catastrophes that threaten the resources and life of all humanity. Since the traditional military is not enough, they design the so-called Jaegers, giant robots that can be piloted thanks to a neural bridge that connects the pilots mentally with the machine. On the verge of being defeated, the humans put their hopes in two pilots who take control of an old abandoned Jaeger.
It is not one of the great exponents of giant monster movies, since it does not offer the classic approach, but it is very important that you give it a chance if you like action movies, science fiction and a bit of disturbing moments. This is the first installment in a trilogy made up of very different but connected films. Only for true fans.
Nothing better than a good cocktail of genetic mutations to enjoy strange and tremendously powerful monsters. That is the premise proposed by Rampage, where a primatologist and an expert in genetics must try to stop three creatures born in the laboratory.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters
This installment of Godzilla released in 2019 is a magnificent tribute to the saga itself, as it brings together three other Kaiju beasts in brutal combat: Mothra, Rodan and Godzilla’s greatest enemy: the three-headed giant Ghidorah. A show of destruction in the purest Japanese style.
Six years after the Earth was invaded by aliens, a reporter is forced to escort a girl who wishes to cross the border between Mexico and the United States. The problem is that this area is “infected”, since right there a NASA probe populated with extraterrestrial monsters landed. Like Cloverfield, the film plays on fear of an unseen monster, until it finally reveals its appearance to surprise everyone.
