I grew up with Godzilla and his movies. I remember watching Godzilla movies on a Detroit station that ran sci-fi and horror double features on Saturdays. I grew up watching him battle King Ghidorah, Mothra, Rodan, Gigan, and the rest. From a young age Godzilla was part of my life, so much so that… Continue reading Godzilla Vs Kong – review
In which I talk about some odds and some ends - an honor, what I am watching, what I am listening to, and the usual stuff and such.
