it's really nice to to hear such a respected actor stating it was a giant Japanese monster movie that started his love of cinema. that's just cool, as these movies were almost universally reviled back in the day. I've talked about this movie a few times on the blog, and it's nice to know that Mr. Pitt has the some of the same great taste in movies that I do.
I'd like to have seen it though, as it's caused quite a stir in the Godzilla/kaiju fandom now, and apparently has also caused a jump in sales for the DVD edition of the movie. which is a good thing.
I wonder what all his fans think of this movie now, if they order it and watch it. I also hope he or one of his agents sends him a copy of the movie so he can watch it. I'd like to hear his honest reaction now as well. it's such a fun movie that I hope he still really likes it and will also admit it.
and yeah, I'm kind of jumping on the bandwagon here.
