If you plan on seeing Godzilla, you want to stay through the end credits as they give you an enticing scene that may or may not be used in a later movie.
I saw Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) – https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3741700/ Friday night/Saturday morning (June 7/8, 2019) with a friend. It was his third time seeing (one was with his wife; the other time was with his youngest son who thinks he’s Godzilla). This is my second post today on Godzilla / Kaiju – https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2019/06/09/kaijune-07-little-fears
I saw this on YouTube and it should be the latest size comparison as Godzilla has a habit of getting bigger over time – Godzilla Size Comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkNIkmfzWKs (about 4:05 minutes long).
What is Kaiju? See Trivia Question: Kaiju
I wasn’t aware of the term “kaiju” for a long time. For a simple explanation that is open to some debate among kaiju fans, we can go with Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiju.
Kaiju is a Japanese word meaning “strange creature”. In English, it has come to mean “monster” or “giant monster”, referring to creatures of a large size seen in movies from Asia. Many kaiju movies are made in Japan. It is a type of tokusatsu entertainment. … The most well-known kaiju is Godzilla.
In some cases, I see it translated as “strange beast” and in other places as “monster.” Some purists would argue it only applies to Japanese movies of a certain genre; I tend to take the broader view that it includes a lot of other beasts/animals/monsters, like King Kong and other giant beasts. Had I titled this blog post “Godzilla,” then thrown in kaiju, some would have gotten the reference.
