I said i was a dinosaur nerd growing up, what I should have said was I was, and still am, a dinosaur nerd
I perhaps gave to much credit to Ishiro Honda, the creation of Godzilla is equal parts Honda, Tanaka, and Tsuburaya.
Not only do I love the design of titanosaurus, but I'm a sucker for the misunderstood monster theme. That's when the monster genre works best in my opinion. Plus poor titanosaurus is also a victim, controlled by Mafune and the aliens, adding a layer of tragedy you don't often see in a kaiju.
My brain totally shut off talking about Big Man Japan. What I was trying to say was that the movie was primarily a satire, and the monster fights were mostly played for laughs so it's not fair to compare them to other monster fights. Also cgi was crap Drink every time i say "Yeah"
My wife is fully supportive of my monster movie enthusiasm, she even bought me a huge stack of dvd's for xmas.
No matter how many times I hear my own voice in a recording, I'll never be able to recognize it. Spending time with people who do so much to promote this tiny corner of geek culture, inspired me to do more. Even if it's just writing here on this blog that's viewed by 1 or 2 people.
