Go! Go! Godzilla! #1: So It Begins...

Go! Go! Godzilla!

Cryptic enough for you? Today is the day that, as a 23 year old man, that I complete an essential piece of my childhood. What could that be? Nothing less than watching every single Godzilla film ever made. Where did this passion come from? I'm not sure. It might be from my childhood love of the Blue Oyster Cult. The only thing I know for sure is that I have cried in no less than two Godzilla movies and that I may have had my first sexual experience with a VHS tape of Godzilla vs. Megalon. There are 29 Godzilla films, 28 of them made by the Toho company of Japan and one made by Roland Emmerich, and I intend to watch every single one of them. Can I do it? You bet your giant radiated lizard I can!

1. Godzilla 7/10
16. Godzilla 6/10
17. Godzilla vs. Biollante
18. Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah
19. Godzilla vs. Mothra
20. Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II
21. Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla
22. Godzilla vs. Destoroyah
23. Godzilla 2000
24. Godzilla vs. Megaguirus
25. Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack
26. Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla
27. Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.
28. Godzilla: Final Wars
29. Godzilla (US Version)

Stay tuned for all the rubber suit wearing, Tokyo stomping, fire breathing, asteroid blasting madness as I subject myself to roughly 60 hours of some of the finest film-making in cinema history.

The best part of this: You get a healthy abundance of Takashi Shimura, one of the greatest Japanese actors of all time.

Good luck!
