Godzilla Raids Again(1955)

Godzilla Raids Again, or Gigantis the Fire Monster as it was called in the U.S, created a very important tradition in the Godzilla franchise: monster battles. Tojo decided to add a new monster to this movie, and the result was Anguirus, which was basically a gigantic armadillo. The new monster is found to have a bitter rivalry with Godzilla, and the two cause much destruction of Japan.

The original Godzilla(not the highly modified American version, the actual Japanese one).How I love this movie. This film served as a reminder to the Japanese people of the devastation created by the nuclear bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.Coming out only nine years after the bombing, I think that Tojo did a very good job with Godzilla(or Gojira,as it was called in Japan),displaying how utterly destructive nuclear power is.
