Godzilla Is Back!
Godzilla stomps back into movie theaters this week in a highly-anticipated, big-budget blockbuster motion picture!
I’ve always loved Godzilla, and that affection has rubbed of on my youngest son, Jack, who has been preparing for release of this picture with a marathon viewing of every Godzilla DVD in his collection. He views the chance to finally experience a Godzilla movie in a theater as a right of passage.
(Fortunately, he hadn’t yet been born when Matthew Broderick was terrorized by the Big G back in 1998!)
But Godzilla is a resilient creature, as radiation monsters go, having enjoyed more comebacks than Dracula and Richard Nixon combined, and even a Roland Emmerich picture couldn’t keep him down for long.
Just how resilient, you ask?
Well, did you know that Godzilla once battled the Avengers, and the Fantastic Four? That he downed a S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier? That he snuck into New York City wearing a trench coat??
IT’S ALL TRUE!
Before you see the film, revisit my review of Godzilla’s time as a full-integrated part of the Marvel Universe: King of the Monsters!

Thanks for reading — and enjoy the movie!
