I used to be a Godzilla fan. When I was little and cable was in it’s infancy I’d watch those movies with my father. I had a marvelous maroon plastic Rodan that would eat my sister’s Barbies, and the holy grail, Godzilla himself. He had wheels on his feet and a tongue of fire. One of his claws had a spring action device and you could shoot it from his wrist. I wasn’t the coolest six-year-old but I was well equipped to fight the forces of evil or good depending on the Godzilla movie.
I preferred when Godzilla was a hero because he would get to live. I don’t think I could sit through one of those movies now. They do bring back happy memories of my father at a time when they are mostly dark and miserable.
I’m not a King Kong fan as a rule but the whole Beauty and the Beast angle is irresistible. Sadly, I could sit through this, I think:
Spoiler alert-King Kong loves as well as lives and has a son or daughter at the end. Not on Netfilx. Rats!
And not to be out done by a monkey the undead have a vampire baby:
“I NEEEEEEED you” is a perfect ringtone.
And now to kinder and kissable monsters.
