GREAT DEADLY MONSTER BATTLE: DIAGORO VS. GOLIATH (1971)


 Since, as far as I know, this was never dubbed into English it might be the most obscure Japanese monster flick(at least in America). Also since this is a straight-forward children's movie it might be the stupidest. Even the most child-like Godzilla or Gamera movies at least had a couple of scenes of ugly monsters fighting or some drama thrown in. This film instead has goofy slapstick and a very annoying fat alcoholic man in addition to gangs of kids constantly yelling stuff.
 The story has to do with Diagoro, who is a giant hippo-looking thing made from an old re-designed monster suit from the Ultraman show that is kept, after his long-haired mama-monster is killed, on the beach where Japan has built him his own giant toilet. Then Goliath, who's an electrical outer-space monster with a horn on his head, shows up and they fight it out. It all very stupid and if you like extremely dumb rubber-suit monster movies check it out.
 The movie was a combo-production between Toho studios and Tsuburaya productions so at least the FX look pretty decent for what it is. AKA DIAGORO VS. GOLIATH
