My affection for Godzilla (and all kaiju really) has many layers.

On one hand, I like monster movies, especially sci fi monster movies, even the 'weird science' styled ones from the 50s, and these are really big monsters!! Two, I love the kitchiness of it, the rubber suits, the cute girls etc and on the third hand (??) it reminds me of when I was young and used to watch them at my Grandmother's house on channel 7 of a Saturday afternoon.

The only thing wrong with them is that I don't own them all!!!

I have never been able to get into it. It is a real shame.

1. The monster smashing scenes are really cool and lighthearted, best viewed when you are either in a really good mood or enjoying something that relaxes you.

2. The madcapped environmental messages are actually kinda timeless.

I just like them because i know i can always get good entertainment out of them. I love how they are used as a medium to portray important messages. And i like sitting down with friends and watching them and generally having fun.

I love them because they're good fun, and the best of them are good films to boot with strong meanings.

Plus, Godzilla himself is a character you grow to love; he has so much more character than most Hollywood monsters.

How can you not love 2 or more giant monsters beating each other up while smashing a decent portion of tokyo?

Other than that, the Godzilla film's never try to be anything more than what they are. Big fun boys movies with monsters, cute girls and military hardware.... throw in some random explosions and buildings getting smashed and you have a recipie for awesome!

The moral of each movie is also kinda fun, ranging from fears over Nuclear Technology to Cloning/Genetic Engineering to Pollution. Always presented in such a ham-fisted way that you can't help but be amused.

Godzilla is just such an enduring icon.
