Sup my lil’ Cuckles!
We all know Godzilla, but until very recently I’d never consciously watched a Godzilla movie! I feel like, much like James Bond or Jake Sully, you can feel like you’ve absorbed what their “whole thing” without ever seeing one of the movies that made them a cultural icon.
Terror of MechaGodzilla exists in a unique place, as the 15th last film of Japan’s Shōwa period. Prior to Terror of MechaGodzilla, the franchise introduced Mothra, King Ghidorah, Ebirah, and many more monsters to its GCU (Godzilla Cinematic Universe). In some ways, it’s king of like we’re collectively choosing to watch Endgame as our first Marvel movie. There’s even a cyborg? I can’t wait to find out what’s going on in this movie, especially after reading this 40-year retrospective.
I don’t have much for ya this time, other than to say I’m looking forward to seein’ ya all on Thursday! Apologies for the rushed post!
