Though I’m partial to 1964’s Mothra vs. Godzilla (aka, Godzilla vs. The Thing), Mothra offers incredibly memorable characters that make it such a fun watch. Nelson (Jerry Ito) is utterly vile as our main antagonist, while my favorite character is Zenichiro Fukuda, played by Frankie Sakai, who brings the comedic relief. It’s also worth mentioning that Hiroshi Koizumi plays Shinichi Chujo, a role he would later reprise in Godzilla: Tokyo SOS some 40 years later.
Go watch it.
