2012 in Film: #67

Godzilla (Gojira) (1954) | Directed by Ishirō Honda

Grade: B+

Thoughts: Not the corny, ridiculous monster movie everyone thinks it is. The victim of franchise overload, like many a film these days, Godzilla is actually the smart, emotionally aware visual metaphor that serves as closure for the Japanese after WWII. Exciting, hilarious at times, but very well done nonetheless. The destruction scene is exhilarating.
