"History shows again and again how nature points up the folly of man Godzilla!"
Blue Oyster Cult - Godzilla - 1977 > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godzilla_(song)
Like wasnt Black Sabbaths 1970 song Iron Man used during one of the Iron Man movies?!
Quote: “Godzilla” remains one of Blue Oyster Cult’s most popular songs to date, but has been passed over yet again for inclusion in the new “Godzilla” film. Roeser thinks the tune was overlooked because it presents a whimsical and affectionate view of the creature, whereas the latest movies 1998 and 2014 have tried to represent Godzilla as a terrifying creature having its first encounter with man.
“I think it’s too bad that there wasn’t some ironic usage of Blue Oyster Cult’s ‘Godzilla’ that could have been done for that movie or a credit roll, but that’s the way it goes,” Roeser said.
“In today’s music business, movies are one of the few usages where you still actually get paid. I’m still going to see the new ‘Godzilla’ movie. It looks really good from the trailer, so I’ll definitely go see it.”
Quote: In the Marvel Comics universe, it is implied through retcon that Tony Stark named his superhero identity Iron Man after the song, as he claims he was a fan of the band as a child. The song itself is featured in the 2008 Marvel Studios film Iron Man (closing credits), its initial trailer and the video game tie-in. In reference to the song, Stark wears a Black Sabbath T-shirt throughout the crossover film The Avengers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Man_(song)

Throughout my childhood i loved watching giant monster films from Japan and elsewhere and well into my early adulthood and even now i still find them irresistible as evidenced by the fact that i just watched three of them last night...
Beyond Godzilla their exists a multitude of other awesome giant Japanese monsters who starred in their own films as well as reappearing within various Godzilla movies to name a few >

In defense of the Japanese Godzilla films i will say that their revamping and revitalization of Godzilla beginning around the late 1980s and early 1990s was a far reaching improvement beyond the childish and almost laughable monster that Godzilla had quickly deteriorated into back in the 1960s and 1970s although i will say that i thoroughly still enjoy any and all of them from every time period > http://www.ask.com/wiki/Godzilla_(franchise)
Quote: Godzilla Mothra And King Ghidorah - 2001 >
After countless movies of outrageous machines and fantastic monsters, Shusuke Kaneko finally brings realism back to the Godzilla series. The monsters are all well fleshed out. Godzilla is the harbinger of forgotten souls taking their revenge on Japan. The Guardian Monsters are creatures that were killed long ago and await the time when they'll be awakened to defend their homeland. When Baragon's marching through the forest, birds are seen taking off in front of the giant creature, something logical that hasn't been seen in a Godzilla movie.
But only two have given me real nightmares...
The Wizard Of Oz - 1939 and War Of The Gargantuas - 1966
Ever since i first watched this film like around thirty five years ago and again and again after that War Of The Gargantuas has always been easily my favorite Japanese monster movie...
Try laying down and relaxing and closing your eyes in darkness...
While listening to this Akira Ifukube composed music...
Hear how uniquely strange and hauntingly frightening and unearthly bizarre it sounds...
Quote: Godzilla has received generally positive reviews from film critics, with some praising the film for the slow pace and build-up for most of the film, and others criticizing the length of time before the title character appears on screen, as well as the amount of time the character is on screen.
Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes reports a 73% approval rating from critics, based on 238 reviews with an average score of 6.6/10. The site's consensus reads: "With just enough human drama to anchor the sweeping spectacle of giant monsters smashing everything in sight, Gareth Edwards' Godzilla satisfyingly restores the franchise's fire-breathing glory."
On Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average based on selected critic reviews, the film has a score of 62 (indicating "generally favorable reviews") based on 48 reviews. Cinema Score reported that cinemagoers gave the film an average grade of B+ on an A+ to F scale.
The screenplay, which held back revealing Godzilla until nearly an hour in, drew several varying opinions. Peter Howell of the Toronto Star noted that "Edwards wants to do more than make our eyes bulge and our popcorn crunch. For most of the first half of the film, we get mainly tantalizing glimpses of Godzilla and its new sparring partner, a giant insect parasite called MUTO... But when the time comes to stop the fan dance, Edwards makes sure Godzilla is ready for its close-up, letting out a mighty roar directly to camera. The theatre literally seems to shake."
Roth Cornet of IGN agrees, "As in the classic, they hold the titular monster back for quite some time, and while the slow burn may not agree with a modern audiences’ desire for rapid-fire storytelling, once the monster action really gets going it is glorious to behold, with the finale a thing of utter, spectacular beauty. I’ll confess, I would have liked to see more of that action, and Godzilla earlier in the film, but am equally struck by what is in many ways a bold and well thought out pacing choice."
