Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (ゴジラvsキングギドラ)

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (ゴジラvsキングギドラ) is a 1991 Japanese science fiction kaiju film produced by Toho Co., Ltd.. Directed by Kazuki Omori, and featuring special effects by Koichi Kawakita, the film starred Anna Nakagawa, Megumi Odaka, and Akiji Kobayashi. The 18th installment of the Godzilla series featured the return of Godzilla's greatest foe, the three-headed King Ghidorah. The film was a box office hit with sequels released on a yearly basis until 1995.

This film is set after the events of The Return of Godzilla (1984) and Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989). Originally, the film was to be a remake of King Kong vs. Godzilla with the title Godzilla vs. King Kong , but Turner Entertainment demanded too much money for the use of Kong. After this, Toho had the idea of making Godzilla vs. Mechani-Kong (from 1967's King Kong Escapes ), but director Kazuki Omori feared that this would ultimately violate Turner's copyright as well. Toho eventually settled for Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah , pitting Godzilla against his archenemy from the original series. (from wikipedia.org)

This is one of the better Godzilla movies - it has time travelers (who turn out to be the villains), good looking special effects, a decent story (although some people say it's anti-American since the Godzillasaurus beats and kills some of the American soldiers in 1944), King Ghidorah never looked better (in my opinion), and Megumi Odaka (小高恵美) is back as psychic Miki Saegusa.

Here's the trailer:
