In what will be the last of my Godzilla posts for a while I wanted to give a review of William Tsutsui’s book Godzilla on My Mind. However, the book is too painfully bad to give a detailed review.

To borrow a line from Monty Python, this is not a book for reading. This is a book for laying down and avoiding.

Below I’ve shared some photos of my personal space. Have you had the chance to set up your ultimate room? If so, please tell us about it in the comments. Read more…

  • Godzilla 2000

    After much waiting I finally received my copy of Godzilla 2000 (1999) subtitled this week. I’ve been waiting to see this movie for a long time. Although I enjoyed it, it was one of the weaker entries of the six movies in the Millenium Series. Read more…
