Review: SON OF GODZILLA (1967)

This will be a short one.

Next up on the big list (see it HERE) is Son of Godzilla (1967).
James goes first:
WwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeellllLLLL.... I thought this movie made the Godzilla franchise look 45% less good and through out the Godzilla series, Minilla lives to make godzilla bad, so, so very bad! 
so, we have a mutant spider and some mutant praying mantises. this is the mutant special here! 
so, rating wise, i'll say 1.009 out of 5 Atomic Breaths of Awesomeness!! 
My turn:
Here we go.  Truly aimed at kids, you're not going to like this too awful much if you've gone through puberty. 
While we get introduced to Kamacuras (aka Gimantis) and Kumonga (aka Speiga), we also see a pretty dopey Godzilla suit.  Oh.  And we're introduced to baby Godzilla, Minya or Minilla.
The suit action is OK.  Godzilla lights up the Kamacuras with a quickness early on, but, for some reason, his fire ain't so hot later on.  Odd.  Minya is, at first, a barely functioning mechanical figure that hatched from an egg ... where that egg came from, though, I haven't a clue.  Anyway, from the beginning, he's getting clocked in the face repeatedly.  It starts funny, then gets annoying and swings around to being funny again. 
I almost forgot.  There's people in the movie, too.  (I won "Spot Serizawa.")  The plot though is utterly forgettable.  Scientists on an island; annoyingly intrepid reporter comes ashore; lovely native lady; something, something, credits. 
Son of Godzilla ... So, what's next?  1.5 out of five atomic breath blasts.
Here's the trailer:

Next up, Kong returns in King Kong Escapes.
