Where to watch every Godzilla movie ever made

Contributed by

With Godzilla: King of the Monsters looming and a long weekend ahead of you, you may have the inclination to watch a Godzilla movie or two or 30. But where would you start? There's so many of them, and until we get a streaming service that's solely devoted to radioactive creatures, I doubt we'll be able to find them all in one place.

Well, worry no more, hypothetical but completely normal Godzilla fanatic, for I have compiled a list of every Godzilla movie and all the places that you can watch them. For the most part, they're spread out over the Criterion Channel (fingers crossed for a sweet Criterion Collection Godzilla box set!), and Amazon (for free if you have a STARZ membership,) but there's also a few on Netflix, Vudu, and of course, Google Play.

Godzilla (the 1954 Japanese original): Criterion Channel, Amazon, YouTube, Google Play, Awesome Criterion Collection Blu Ray/DVD

Godzilla: King of the Monsters (the 1956 "American-ized" version with Raymond Burr): Criterion Channel, Amazon, YouTube, Google Play, Awesome Criterion Collection Blu Ray/DVD

Godzilla Raids Again (the one where he fights his first monster rival, Anguirus): Criterion Channel, Amazon, YouTube, Google Play

King Kong vs. Godzilla (the one where King Kong fights, um, Godzilla): Only available on a DVD that I wish had more extra features

Mothra vs. Godzilla (maybe the best Godzilla movie): Criterion Channel, STARZ Amazon, YouTube, Google Play

Godzilla 1985 (In this American-ized version of the last film, Raymond Burr returns to mostly say dramatic lines and watch stuff on TVs): Not available on anything unless you want to buy the VHS that I had as a kid that features a Godzilla suit on the front that is absolutely not from the movie it's promoting.

Godzilla vs. Biollante (super underrated movie with some neat ideas): Only available on a DVD that doesn't seem to be produced anymore. Bummer.

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (To paraphrase rapper/Poet Laureate Pitbull, "To understand Godzilla, we have to go back in time"): Amazon, Vudu, YouTube, iTunes, Google Play

Godzilla vs. Mothra (Mothra has an eeeeeeeevil twin): Vudu, YouTube, Amazon Prime, Google Play

Godzilla: Final Wars (Godzilla fights a parade of monsters, so watch this one if you just want a non-stop brawl): Amazon, Vudu, YouTube, iTunes, Google Play

Godzilla (The 2014 American remake that's good and not slow and I love the fact that it teased Godzilla for most of the movie and made him seem like a big deal. Please @ me as I will fight you about this): YouTube, Amazon, Google Play, my heart.
