"< japanese >GODZILLA LOVES ALL CHILDREN!< /japanese >"
Wouldn't anyone kill for a chance to be a panicked, fleeing extra in a Godzilla movie? This reporter got that chance, and lived to write about it.

I knew that the Godzilla franchise had been chugging along in Japan for years, with a new B-quality movie released every year. Sometimes, you can catch these latter-day masterpieces on the Sci-Fi Channel. There's something kind of weird about the newer movies; somehow seem out of their proper context, i.e. the 1960s.
