It is the year 1984, not quite, but Godzilla 1984 has been on my mind lately. Everyday my love and appreciate of the film deepens. I remember when the film was announced back then and frankly, I was upset. Godzilla was going back to attacking Japan. And I wanted the hero and ally I had growing up. I never wanted to watch Gojira (1954) and the idea of returning to his roots just was not appealing. I never wanted to see Godzilla defeated nor die.
