1. What was the very first Godzilla movie you saw?
-Godzilla vs Megalon.  I remember when I was about 5, I heard the roar from somewhere, then one of my aunts tells me about this thing called a "Gonzilla".  I asked my mom about it and she pulled out the movie and put it into the VCR.  From the second the monsters showed up, I was officially hooked on Godzilla.

2. What are your favorite designs of Godzilla?

-Godzilla Incarnations by JaketheDino

3. What are your favorite kaiju in the series besides Godzilla himself?

-King Ghidorah, Spacegodzilla, Gigan, Gorosaurus, Titanosaurus, Mechagodzilla, Mothra, Anguirus, Zilla, King Caesar, King Kong, Destoroyah.  ALL OF THEM!!! Oh except Gabara.

4. What are your brutally honest thoughts on the 1998 film?

-It's a guilty pleasure of mine.  The characters are bland, the story is unoriginal, the monster has a great design but lost potential (THANK YOU MATT FRANK FOR FIXING THAT) and the babies rip off my favorite movie, Jurassic Park but it is popcorn entertainment.  It's the kind of movie you turn your brain off at and just don't question.

5. Your favorite Godzilla movies?

-My Top 10 Godzilla films by JaketheDino
honorable mentions go to Terror of Mechagodzilla, Godzilla vs Spacegodzilla, Tokyo SOS, Invasion of Astro Monster, Shin Godzilla, Godzilla vs Biollante, Return of Godzilla and King Kong vs Godzilla

6. What do you think of Godzilla: The Series?

-It's not bad.  I love the monsters designs, especially the C-Rex, Bat, Cobra, Chameleon and Cyber Zilla.

7. What kaiju would you like to see make a resurgence into the series again?

-Gorosaurus, Titanosaurus, Varan, Baragon and Battra

8. What are your favorite Godzilla video games?

-Godzilla: Save The Earth, Godzilla Unleashed  (Godzilla PS4 if I had one but I've seen the gameplay)

9. What did you think of the Godzilla Power Hour show?
Never saw it so I can't say anything about it other than GODZOOKY!

10. Who are your favorite recurring actors for the series?
-Megumi Odaka.  She was the only recurring actress that left a big impression on me.  Oh and the man who was general Aso.

11. Favorite unmade/scrapped creations?
-Bagan.  SO much potential.  Oh and let's not forget the Gryphon.

12. Who is the best music composer in the films?

-Akira Ifukube, no doubt, but Alexandre Desplat is good also.

13. Are you looking forward to seeing the Godzilla anime movie this year?

Is that a rhetorical question?!  Godzilla is Japan's baby.  And to be frank, I'm surprised that it took this long for the KING OF THE MONSTERS to get his own anime

14. Are you also looking forward to Godzilla: King of Monsters and its next follow-up Godzilla vs. Kong?
-If I'm this excited for Kong Skull Island, then my excitement for Godzilla: King of Monsters and Godzilla vs Kong is through the freaking stratosphere!

15. What do you think of both versions of Return of Godzilla and 1985?

-I heavily prefer the Japanese version.  It has a more complete story, the characters are more well developed and the overall tone is consistent. 

16. Would you consider Godzilla to be part of the Marvel universe given that it there was a series that chronicles him and he fought the Avengers?

Well, yes and no.  Yes because I'd like to see him match Thor's strength but then again no because it wouldn't make much sense despite Marvel's fantastic run

17. What other monsters would you like to see Godzilla fight against?

-Gomora, Ultraman, Slattern, but most importantly: GAMERA

18. What is the lamest kaiju to be part of the Godzilla series?
Gabara.  SO much potential if he could be done right.

19. What franchises would you like to see have a crossover with Godzilla?

-Gamera and Pacific Rim

20. What is the absolute WORST Godzilla movie you saw?
-Godzilla's Revenge.  Before 2014 came out, I had myself a little Godzilla-thon by watching one entry per day until the release.  I was not looking forward to watching Godzilla's Revenge.  It was so bad, I thought I was going braindead because I was starting to somewhat enjoy some parts.  I was so happy when it ended.

Never have I seen such a monster get so much hate.  Yes, I will admit that I do not like the 1998 film a lot but I do watch it occasionally as it is a guilty pleasure film of mine.  Now the characters were boring and the monster didn't do much but the design of Zilla is a very unique design.  Now I can understand why TOHO would be mad and kill him in 12 seconds to show who is the real Godzilla but what made me love Zilla was the animated series and his role in Rulers of Earth.  However, I think it is in Rulers of Earth is where Zilla really shines.  Here's a few things that show why he's awesome.

1. He's able to keep up with and sometimes even catch Godzilla off guard even though right after that, he's bitten on the back of the neck, but I digress.  That's one thing I likes about the 1998 film: how the monster could think and use its environment to its advantage.  Zilla was never a dumb monster to begin with.

2.  He escapes when he realizes that Godzilla is too much for him.  Again, showing how smart he is.  This was what I imagined he'd do even though the execution in the movie was very poor.

3.  Quite possibly my favorite bit from Zilla in Rulers of Earth is in the  final battle where he just DOMINATES a few Trilopods!  When done right, Zilla is a force of nature on the battlefield.  He even goes as far as to use the spikes on his back to shred his enemies.  That's genius!  I even remember having a conversation with a friend in elementary school when Zilla '98 came out and saying that he could do something like that.

In conclusion, Zilla may have had a VERY rough start, but he's a well known Kaiju now and one of my all time favorites.  Just goes to show how a monster that started off as a shameless ripoff has now become quite popular as well as its own character with its own unique style.

Anytime.  I never got the chance to play Kid Icarus Uprising but I LOVE Medusa's design and I love that Kree Summers voices her, Hades is funny and I like Pit and Palutena's banter.

Yup, Medusa's design is amazing, Hirooka Masaki did an excellent job on her. They did an excellent job with Hades, he's both funny and threatening, that's hard to do. Palutena gets a little annoying as the game progresses, but yeah, the back and forth between Pit and her makes the game a lot funnier :3
