I've never seen a real Godzilla film in a theater. The closest was the Matthew Broderick film, which I DO love, but it's not, you know... GODZILLA.
But I grew up in NYC, and on Thanksgiving, they used to show the parade and then Godzilla films all day long on WPIX when I was a kid.
I saw that film too but refuse to call it fully that because he didn't destroy a freakin building and was beast of mass destruction.
I don't know where but my dad taped Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster, Godzilla vs the Sea Monster, Godzilla vs Gigan, and Godzilla vs Monster Zero. Unfortnatly, the tape got destroyed in the early 90s
Only VHS tapes I still have when I was a kid are the original ones Godzilla Raids Again, Godzilla vs Megalon, and Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla. I only recently got Godzilla 1985 because I got tired of waiting. Plus I also have the remaining Heisi Era (Godzilla vs King Ghidorah, Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla II, Godzilla vs Destroyah) taped thanks to Starz.
I could have taped Godzilla vs Mothra and Godzilla vs Space Godzilla but not really a fan of either. I'm kicking myself in the ass though that I didn't tape Rebirth of Mothra III when I had the chance. I remember once seeing the first two at Fries and thought gee if those two are out the third one gotta be out too. Still haven't see it
