yeah, I know it's not the greatest monster movie, but I really like this one. the monster is pretty great.
there's some cool destruction as well. and I like the US version. sure, it's not as good as the Japanese version, but neither is the best giant monster movie ever. this was aired several times when I was growing up, so there is a sentimental reason I like it.
it was a year ago I started "Monster of the Week" and I think I've done about 20 of them this year. falling down on the job!
