EVOLUTION of KING KONG: Size Comparison – YouTube

As part of my on-again, off-again Godzilla/Kaiju series – https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/tag/kaiju/, see also Trivia Question: Kaiju

I wasn’t aware of the term “kaiju” for a long time. For a simple explanation that is open to some debate among kaiju fans, we can go with Wikipediahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiju.

Kaiju is a Japanese word meaning “strange creature”. In English, it has come to mean “monster” or “giant monster”, referring to creatures of a large size seen in movies from Asia. Many kaiju movies are made in Japan. It is a type of tokusatsu entertainment. … The most well-known kaiju is Godzilla.

In some cases, I see it translated as “strange beast” and in other places as “monster.” Some purists would argue it only applies to Japanese movies of a certain genre; I tend to take the broader view that it includes a lot of other beasts/animals/monsters, like King Kong and other giant beasts. Had I titled this blog post “Godzilla,” then thrown in kaiju, some would have gotten the reference.

If you read any of my Kaiju posts, https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/tag/kaiju/, you would know Kaiju can include large creatures like King Kong although some would claim otherwise. This kept showing up in my YouTube suggestions: EVOLUTION of KING KONG: Size Comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHXyEB_kh5Y (about 3:18 minutes long). In doing a similar search, I found several other comparisons between the different versions of King Kong: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=King+Kong+comparison as well comparing King Kong and Godzilla.

There is a new Kong movie coming out next year, March 13, 2020: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godzilla_vs._Kong;

I posted this in one of my earlier I love Godzilla movies, including the ones that are a bit more out there than some. I don’t have a particular preference for one timeline over another although I do like the good Godzilla over bad Godzilla. You can get a list of the different Godzilla movies on YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LfDLoNEETg or at https://wikizilla.org/wiki/List_of_Godzilla_film_continuities. There are a number of YouTube videos that can help you sort out what order you can watch them. You can watch them in the order they were made, but that tends to be a bit confusing since different timeline versions of Godzilla exist. Use the Wikizilla or YouTube link to see how to categorize the different Godzilla timelines.posts:
