Actually Hedorah (aka the Smog Monster) is something of a personal favorite of mine. Nevermind the whole trippy aspect, and its environmental message which resonates because that was a matter of concern that was stressed when I was in elementary school, the monster itself was one of the few mystery monsters out there that couldn't be beaten through the application of more force.
The people needed to solve Hedorah, before anything could be done to beat Hedorah.
Then also, with the emphasis on the kid and his dreams ... this one was closest in tone to the old Gamera movies. All in all, an interesting picture that, when I'm in the mood, is still very watchable with the only misstep being Godzilla flying. My sole regret is that we're missing the English translation of the title song
the G-man Himself
Let me strive every moment of my life to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, so that all may profit by it.
Let me think of the right and lend my assistance to all who may need it, with no regard for anything but justice.
Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage.
Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens, and my associates in everything I say and do.
Let me do right to all, and wrong no man. -- Doc Savage
