  1. I didn’t make it to that original version Godzilla. How was it? Should I look for the DVD? (Looks like it’s being marketed as Gojira, from what I see on Amazon.)

  2. It’s worth watching. The story flows much more naturally and the sequence on the island makes more sense.

    Part of my enjoyment came from seeing it on a big screen. The Godzilla suit (and occasional puppet) may not look like a living thing but it looked big. Godzilla never really looks big enough on television.

    It also helped that I’d been reading special effects director Eiji Tsuburaya’s biography at the time. It was good reminder of the state of special effects in 1954. The original Godzilla suit weighed over a hundred pounds.
