    Attention Godzilla Fans

    Hey All-

    My 7 year old daughter has developed into a fan of Godzilla and her birthday is on the way. Being a retired Godzilla fan, I have of course got all of the bases covered. (Cake, books, x mas ornaments etc etc )

    SO, why am I posting? Here is why:

    WTF happened to Godzilla movies?

    How many times can a person hash out the plot?

    OK: Big Green radioactive avacado, named Godzilla comes out of Tokyo Bay and stomps much smaller orange suits into little hamburger textured objects while the poorly dubbed soundtrack screams: OH NO, ITS GODZIRRA!!!!!!! Once in a while, weird aliens who look as though they were Iron Chef wannabes, show up, another monster, lots of destruction and BAM! Movie over.

    SO, again WTF happened?

    There are actual serious web groups out there who debate the plot and acting. HUH? Thats right, apparently, there is an entire genre, nay, a SCHOOL where you dress up in an orange industrial suit, look up at the sky, look terrified and scream OH NO, ITS GODZIRRA!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF is the plot? Youi mean you DONT KNOW whats going to happen?

    Let me guess, you BELIEVE that your Toyota costs alot because of course, Japanese scientists stay up years at a time dreaming up weapons to stop Godzilla and hence the cost of your Toyota MUST GO UP to fund the research and rebuild Tokyo????

    Did I miss something? Has Godziolla become a real deal and not some badly done monster movie with horrific dubbing (witrh of course the glaring exception of the Godzilla movie here in the Us with Matthew B?).

    WTF did this become, a "serious" mode of acting???????

    The answer, of course, is Cloverfield.

    When I was a kid I loved Godzilla. I think I wore out the Godzilla versus Megalon vhs my mom got me.

    Oh, also, be sure to play this repeatedly at the birthday party:
