In the last few years, there has been a bubbling resurgence of the classic “giant monster” movies. Godzilla, King Kong, Pacific Rim & Colossal have kept the torch, and many major cities, lit for a new generation of fans to purchase licensed merchandise. There’s an almost childish sense of awe that comes from the idea of a giant monster wreaking havoc on a city, your city, displacing your normal existence and throwing everything into a chaotic escape from the rut of routine.
As expected, I’m curious about a few things. Details. Pieces of the puzzle that don’t quite line up when I dig into the naughty bits of the idea.
