Well, Godzilla didn't really die in Godzilla 1985. He showed up later in the official sequel Godzilla vs. Biollante, and it is a sequel because the plot has a terrorist threatening to blow up the volcano that Godzilla was imprisoned in, and that releases Godzilla, who can apparently survive volcanoes. And that movie is on Blu-Ray, but Godzilla 1985 isn't, for some reason.

Speaking of the Godzilla advertising campaign, I remember having the Godzilla ice cream back in the day, and that it actually tasted pretty good.

Fun fact, in the Godzilla (1998) novel, they state that Godzilla is a mutated alligator, which explains why he's able to lay so many eggs, but doesn't answer the rest of the plot holes.

Question: The idea behind the film Final Destination came from a scripted but not filmed episode of what television show?
Answer: The X-Files

I remember seeing Godzilla in the theater the Summer of 1998 and, like Forest, being very entertained. However I remember even at the time the acting being laughably bad, especially every line by Matthew Broderick.

And Forest, if you think about it, that scene with Broderick looking into the camera after he's asked how close he got to Godzilla, it's pretty much a scene from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" with him breaking the 4th wall. I wonder if that's what Roland Emmerich or Broderick were going for.

Also, a suggestion for a future podcast; Anime horror, or something along the lines of Ninja Scroll or maybe Bio Hunter....just a thought, but great job as always.
