Because nothing says Christmas more than watching all of the Godzilla movies back to back, starting on Christmas Eve. Ok so maybe not. A Godzilla marathon over Christmas is a bold move. I have all of the Godzilla movies and it never occurred to me to inflict the entire run on my loved ones at Christmas. Still…I’m tempted.
If one of my loved ones had put on a Godzilla marathon over Christmas for me it would certainly get me right in the feels. So that might be something to consider.
If you don’t own all of the Godzilla movies and still want to catch them, tune in to the El Rey Network’s Christmas Kaiju Marathon. Treat the Godzilla fan in your life to three solid days of Godzilla movies.
Check this out:
Here’s the schedule if you want to see what’s showing and when.
The movies begin at 6am Christmas Eve with the original classic Gojira. This is the one that started it all. The first appearance of Godzilla, filmed in 1954. Ishrio Honda’s Gojira references the story of the Lucky Dragon 5 in the opening scenes and goes on to be an allegory about the horrors of nuclear war. Godzilla has always been meant to be a warning to mankind.
From there the marathon runs through Saturday, December 26, 11pm, ending with Godzilla against MechaGodzilla. If you ask me Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla is the best of the MechaGodzilla movies. Although I am compelled to point out that Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla is the first Jaeger vs. Kaiju movie.
There are some repeats so check the listings if there’s one you want to see but it shows at a bad time for your viewing, you might be able to pick it up during the second showing, provided it’s one that’s shown twice.
So check out the El Rey Christmas Kaiju Marathon this Christmas and have a very Godzilla Holiday.
