Mothra vs. Godzilla A.K.A. Mosura tai Gojira (1964)

A Japanese daikaiju science fiction directed by Ishiro Honda.
Godzilla attacks Japan after a giant egg is found. Mothra fights and dies before the egg hatches. A pair of small women are connected to these events.
Standard issue Godzilla flick. If there ever was a standard to judge Godzilla films by, this is it. It's just cheesy enough to notice and conforms to all of the Godzilla criteria. The human drama is meaningless and the monster fight doesn't make sense. The special effects are crude, but functional. Overall, middle of the road in mediocresville. I rate this o.k. so it can blend in and normalize like it wants to.
