Kevin is fascinated with dinosaurs and Godzilla. He’s been a fan of Gojira since he was 5, having discovered the Japanese Godzilla movies on YouTube. His YouTube handle (for when he actually posts a video one day) is GodzillaFan8889 (Dorski, his mother, has no idea why). He has eight Godzilla figures so far, the newest addition being Godzilla 2014 with Atomic Roar (a blue flame shoots out of his mouth).

Here it is…I think this is it…(with a tinge of doubt as newsreels are shown)
Oh my gosh, yes! It’s Godzilla!
15 minutes in
Ewww. They’re kissing! (the people)
Muto! IT’S THE MUTO!
It’s been 30 minutes and still no Godzilla.
Yes! I see his huge tail!
Ewww. They’re kissing! (the others)
Wow! It’s an epic battle! Fight!
I hate this movie.
I love this movie!
We totally agree with Kevin. Godzilla brings back the Godzilla we love. (We have no memory of the 90s Godzilla, just the urge to stomp something.) Director Gareth Edwards’ approach is Spielbergian without the rampant sentimentality. Bryan Cranston is its emotional core. True, Bryan Cranston can do no wrong in our eyes—we don’t care if others see him as a ham sandwich in a fright wig. Any chance he could be in Game of Thrones? (If Mycroft Holmes can be in the Iron Bank of Braavos, couldn’t Walter White be Jon Connington? The Three-Eyed Crow? The Mad King?)
