We’re bringing you another entry in our ongoing Godzilla-themed coverage, in which Guy Woodruff and I team up to talk about goofy dances, weird aliens, and the many and varied rumors swirling around the late Nick Adams, an actor with a colorful off-screen life.

So are the Godzilla films not that popular for you, Paul? I always enjoy hearing your comments on this series….
Good stuff. I did a review of this one a few months back for my blog. I get a chuckle out of Godzilla coming out of the trance at the end and the first thing he does is just start beating the living daylights out of Ghidrah while beating Rodan with his tail in order to wake him up so he can join in. Good stuff.
It’s nice to see Paul’s with me on enjoying the Kid-Friendly, Good Guy Godzilla anyway. I have enough of the nuclear allegory to leave it all behind at this point, but I’m sure the 2014 flick will not be seen by my eyes!
I already mentioned this over at Facebook, but the dance seen in the film is based on a character’s take in the manga “Osomatsu-kun”, about a family of sextuplet boys, though a character name Iyami became a well known figure of the series over the boys and was known to have this pose where he shouts “Shee!” while flexing his arms and legs about.
I like how the Japanese are racist against themselves.
