    Hey peeps!

    I know we have several "rank the Godzilla films" threads lurking about, but I wanted to try something a little new.

    Since starting a podcast, Byrd (my podcast co-host) and I are attempting to compile a "Godzilla Movie Ranking" list from multiple forums and groups throughout the Godzilla fandom, one that we would discuss during a future Kaiju Transmissions Podcast episode. I would of course post the final results here. To participate, you only have to follow follow a few simple steps:

    1) Follow this link, which basically asks you to choose between "movie A and movie B" until you've ranked all of the Godzilla films, then post your results in this thread. For the sake of this exercise, we are including GINO, Legendary Godzilla, and Shin Godzilla. Lastly, because some of the Godzilla films have been Americanized, just pick the version you prefer and base your ranking solely on that version. For instance, if you prefer Gojira 1954 over Godzilla, King of the Monsters, then complete your rankings with Gojira 1954 in mind.

    2) Evaluate the films based on which you "prefer." Meaning, I tend to rank films not necessarily based on which movie is technically better made or produced, but a combination of my overall enjoyment and how well the movie made. Thus, I'd rank MZ higher on my personal list than Gojira, though I think Gojira is the best Godzilla film. For me, this takes into account my "favorite" films as well as the "best" films and feels like a happy medium way to evaluate my rankings.

    3) Please list your age, assuming you are comfortable doing so. It's not a deal breaker if you choose not to reveal this info. The common consensus has always been older fans prefer Showa, newer fans prefer Heisei and Millennium. I'm curious if this pans out. PS - I'm 31.

    I will take all the responses, create a spreadsheet, and then post the results based on each Forum/Group individually as well as the fandom collectively.
