30 Days of Godzilla – Day 30: Story of How I Got Into Godzilla and Godzilla (2014) Review

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: Which Movie Would You Remake and Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S (2003) Review

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


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 27: Your Collection and Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla (2002) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 27: Your Collection: My collection? Jeez…I don’t feel like taking pictures of everything. 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


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 25: What Movie is the Most Overrated and Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (2000) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 25: What Movie is the Most Overrated: Overrated seems like a negative term, I prefer to call it over-appreciated because I think this film get a little more love than it deserves. Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack. Though I can see why it may appeal to those who like it, I can’t help but watch the film and just feel mixed about the experience. 30 Days of Godzilla- Review: Gojira tai Megagirasu: Jī Shōmetsu Sakusen aka Godzilla x Megaguirus: G Annihilation StrategyRead More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 24: Worst Dub and Godzilla 2000: Millennium (1999) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 24: Worst Dub: Tie between Godzilla Raids Again or as the dub calls it, Gigantis, the Fire Monster and All Monsters Attack aka Godzilla’s revenge. Gigantis, messes up a lot of what Godzilla Raids Again is and it feels like a dumb down of what the movie actually is. Same with Godzilla’s Revenge, that dub I think ruined any sort of chance of trying to find any good in the movie. Both ruin any sort of enjoyment you could of had with either film. 30Read More


30 Days of Godzilla – Day 23: Most Underrated Movie and TriStar’s Godzilla (1998) Review

30 Days of Godzilla: Day 23: Most Underrated Movie: Underrated? I prefer the term under appreciated just cause I think that better describes my mindset for this one. I guess maybe a tie between The Return of Godzilla, because whole people like it for what it is, I don’t think it gets enough credit for it’s craft and Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla from 1993. I see it get rarely talked about despite all the cool things it does. Yes MechaGodzilla is a human weapon, but that’s kind of the point isn’tRead More
