Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973)
Gojira tai Megaro

Nomination Year: 1999
SYNOPSIS:  The people of Seatopia send the giant Megalon to attack the world above (Seatopia being an undersea utopia, after all). Luckily, Godzilla is there to help defend Japan from Megalon -- but wait! Godzilla alone isn't enough! What luck that a few roguish scientists have invented a size-changing robot named "Jet Jaguar" that can assist Godzilla.

Deus Ex Machina

Thank God You're Here, Uh, Megalon!
What are the odds that our heroes (trapped in a truck on the verge of disaster) will be inadvertently (and entirely conveniently) set free by Megalon?

Oh, pretty good, I'd wager.

Worst Science

With His 2KB of RAM, Anything Is Possible!
Jet Jaguar "programmed himself" to grow larger. Right. Even Megalon doesn't buy it.

Inane Dialogue

Look Out, Megalon! Here Comes ObviousMan!
Twong! "We're in some kind of metal box!" What tipped you off, the metal or the box?
