Since it's nearly time for the new, deadly serious, dark, gritty, gloomy, apocalyptic and probably very humorless Legendary Godzilla, I thought I'd put up a couple fun things from Godzilla's past. Which is almost every movie other than the original. And, whether serious Godzilla fans like it or not, most of the rest of the world sees Godzilla and giant monsters in this light. That's not really a bad thing. The Japanese films take themselves seriously, but have a sense of humor about the proceedings. From what I've seen of the new movie, it's deadly serious.
I haven't seen a lot of stuff about the new movie- no trailers after the first one and only one new commercial. I've also really tried to avoid most fan talk about it. I want to see it without knowing every last detail. That's hard to do in this day and age, but so far I've managed.
