Godzilla vs. Monster Zero

Original Title - Great Monster War (怪獣大戦争, Kaijū Daisensō?)
Japan - 1966
Director - Ishiro Honda
Paramount Home Video, 1983, VHS
Run Time - 1 hour, 33 minutes

Until this last week, I probably hadn't seen a Godzilla movie in 10 or 12 years. I was at my favorite bar and the bartender Danny was playing old VHS tapes on the TV, one of which was this kaiju classic. It may be old news to a number of you, but even without the dialogue I was totally thrilled with this movie and had a hard time focusing on the conversation I was supposed to be having. Consider me a born again Godzilla fan.

OH man my brother is a Godzilla fanatic, he's kept the passion alive for me as well. We took a trip to Godzilla fest in Chicago this past summer that was pretty ridiculous. The fans really take G to a whole other level.
