9. Monsters Appear - Godzilla: King Of The Monsters
You could argue that Godzilla: King of the Monsters did exactly what it said on the tin.
The trailers promised a variety of the big lizard's famous rivals such as Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah, and that's exactly what we got in the monstrous sequel to 2014's Godzilla.
Unfortunately, monsters aside, the rest of the flick was taken up by annoying human drama which consistently took the wind out of this potentially epic MonsterVerse entry.
Thankfully, the reveals of the beloved beasts throughout the feature remind you exactly why you bothered to sit down and watch this monster mash in the first place. The giant pteranodon known as Rodan bursting out of a volcano, the majestic Mothra emerging from her cocoon and Godzilla's arch-nemesis King Ghidorah rising out of the ice all left fans around the world fist pumping in their seats.
Not to be outdone by his co-stars, big Zilla's re-birth (involving him being brought back to full health via nuclear explosion) also leads to one of the mightiest pieces of imagery in the entire series when the titular beast fires off his atomic breath into the sky.
King of the Monsters was by no means perfect, but it gave us the spine-tingling grand entrances each of these titanic characters definitely deserved.
