31 Days of Godzilla!


Ladies and gentlemen, I have set a date for the time I will be descending into the depths of madness, and since such a trip is not to be made lightly, I will be spreading it out over a few days.  31 days to be exact! (Plus a five day set-up.)

As you might have guessed, I am something of a huge Godzilla fan.  As you may have heard, there just happens to be a new, American Godzilla movie coming out on May 16th (all signs point to this one being good.)  Put two and two together, and you will most likely come to the conclusion that I am just a little bit excited.

So excited, in fact, that I have decided to watch every single one of the Big G’s old movies, one per night, leading up to the premier of the new movie on the 16th.  There are 28 official movies, and I will be watching both the Japanese and American versions of the original (they are different), along with the 1998 Dean Devlin movie, and the new movie makes 31!  I will be watching each movie in dubbed English (for that cheesy dubbing flavor), except for the original Japanese original, of course. At least two movies will have to be watched on good old fashioned VHS (*mumble mumble*Godzilla 1985*No DVD release*mumble mumble*) As a primer, I’ll also be watching 5 giant monster movies the week before to kick things off.

Each night I will be posting a little blurb about the movie I am watching, along with my thoughts on each one.  Madness, I tell you.  Please remember my wife, I suspect she will have a Jane Austen marathon to detox when this is over.
