Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Just a head’s up: I’ve never been a Godzilla fan, and up until the 1998 American version with Mathew Broderick, the only Godzilla movie I had ever seen was 1964’s Mothra vs Godzilla. So… What I liked: How much my Daughter enjoyed it (more on that later). Mothra! She looked badass, as did the otherContinue reading “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”
