FOUR HOURS OF PSYCHOTRONIC ROCK N ROLL ON REAL PUNK RADIO!
During the grand opening of a beautiful new public beach on the Japanese coast, an amazing and bizarre discovery is made. An enormous egg is seen bobbing in the water just off shore, and by enormous I mean that it's about the same size as a 3 story building! Reporter Ichiro Sakai (Akira Takarada) and his photographer Yoka Nakanishi (Yuriko Hoshi) are amazed and don't hesitate in preparing a big story about the discovery and what science will do with it...but then they learn that the head of Happy Enterprises, a major Japanese corporation, has bought the egg and plans to profit off it. How horrible! But science losing the egg is one thing, it's true owner is far more distraught at the loss however.
Two tiny little women (Emi Ito and Yumi Ito) approach Ichiro and Yoka pleading for their help. These tiny women are no more than a foot high and are dressed like precious little flowers, and they have quite the extraordinary tale to tell. The little ladies came all the way from their home on Infant Island, a primitive island where nuclear testing had been done for many years. On this island live many strange and amazing creatures, including the enormous moth-like creature named Mothra. And that enormous egg, just so happens to belong to Mothra. They need it to come back to the island because Mothra is their guardian, and this egg is Mothra's heir. Without it, the villagers will be left helpless! But when the reporters beg for Happy Enterprises to release the egg, they are instead propositioned to sell these tiny women!
How could you deny those sweet little faces?
Leaving the offices, the little women are distraught and return home to Infant Island on the back of Mothra. But the reporters don't want to give up - it's not fair that some big wigs will feel so sympathy when it comes to leaving an island without it's protector and its prodigy! But soon they've got bigger problems than restoring the egg to it's mother - GODZILLA HAS RISEN FROM THE EARTH AND IS ATTACKING JAPAN ONCE AGAIN!! Unsure of what to do, Ichiro and Yoka travel to Infant Island and beseech the help of Mothra to defeat Godzilla. At first the villagers all say no...but Mothra has other plans and flies to the mainland to take on the giant beast! But when Mothra is left critically wounded, it is up to the people of Infant Island and their power of prayer to coax the baby Mothra from it's egg and to finish the job it's mother started. But will two twin baby Mothras be strong enough to take down the King of the Monsters?
Back away from that egg Godzilla!
This movie was fun on so many different levels! I loved the fast-paced battle scenes between Godzilla and Mothra, and the scenes on Infant Island brought back fond memories of King Kong vs Godzilla. But I need to admit that I'm starting to get worried. We're now starting to enter the colored era of Godzilla movies and I felt like Godzilla's SKREEONKS are getting monotonous...does this mean a decline in the quality of the Godzilla legacy? I sure hope not, but only time will tell! Make sure to check back in tomorrow where my Grand Godzilla Gala viewing will be of Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster! And also remember to tune in tonight to the Thursday Night Wrecking Pit, and to Zorch Radio where I will give you my live interpretation of this movie during the Trash-Tastic Minute!
