30 Days of Godzilla: Day 30: Tell Us Your Story of What Got You Into Big-G: Where do we begin on that? Like I don’t even know what to bring up and what not, because it’s really a long story of why I love Godzilla, the movies and everything about the franchise and still do to this day. I guess to put it simply, Godzilla came into my life when I needed it. When I saw Godzilla, King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs. Megalon there was something about GodzillaRead More
30 Days of Godzilla – Day 29: Do You Prefer Godzilla as a Hero or a Villain and Godzilla: Final Wars (2004) Review
30 Days of Godzilla: Day 29: Do You Prefer Godzilla as a Hero or a Villain?: He’s whatever he wants to be. I find it kind of weird though since to me Godzilla isn’t really a “hero” or “villain” he’s more neutral than anything, chaotic neutral for the most part. Sometimes humanity benefits from Godzilla other times they are hurt by him but what he does for humanity isn’t of “heroic” or “villainous” intent, he just kind of does because of the consequence of what he is, a monster. HeRead More
30 Days of Godzilla: Day 28: If You Could Remake One Movie Which One Would It Be? Shin Godzilla obviously. But in all seriousness if I could remake a Godzilla film there are a couple; Godzilla Raids Again, Ebirah, Horror of the Deep, Son of Godzilla, Destroy All Monsters, All Monsters Attack, Godzilla vs. Gigan, Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla, Godzilla 2000 and the Kiryu saga. They are films I love and like, but maybe changing a few things here and there and fixing some other things toRead More

So I’ll just say I have a lot of figures, a lot of VHS, a lot of DVDs and Blu-ray (I have all the Godzilla movies), I have a couple of the video games, and I have the autographs of Haruo Nakajima and Akira Takarada. I probably have other things I can’t think of right now, like a lunchbox and blanket, stuff like that. 30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Gojira tai MekagojiraRead More
30 Days of Godzilla – Day 26: Favorite Standalone Kaiju Movie and Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001) Review
30 Days of Godzilla: Day 26: Favorite Standalone Kaiju Movie?: Besides the original Godzilla (what a shock) there’s The Return of Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, and if they count, the Daimajin trilogy. All are just very well made films that are worth watching. 30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Gojira, Mosura, Kingu Gidora: Daikaijū Sōkōgeki aka Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack aka Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack featuring Baragon who we couldn’t possibly put in the main title for some reason aka GMK 2001:Read More
