Happy 67th Birthday Godzilla! SUITMATION RETURNS!

Today is Godzilla's 67th birthday, and as you know, this year marks the 50th anniversary of GODZILLA vs. HEDORAH/SMOG MONSTER.  Of course, this isn't a news blog; there are better places you can go for that, BUT...you need to know that Toho has made a short film that released today on YouTube, featuring a rematch of FINAL WARS Godzilla and Hedorah! This exciting film was made "old-school," with suits and miniatures, and it's lots of fun.  Yes, FUN! And isn't that what's missing today?

I'm sure more information will come out about the making of this film, because there is already an outpouring of love and excitement.  Will it launch a new wave of films with a vintage-style heart and soul to them? If only!

I don't like to use the words "the old-fashioned way," to describe this, because to me, it's just "The Way."

Don't miss this.  You will be glad you did.

Little did I know, but yesterday this behind-the-scenes video was released.  It gives you a good look (in 36 seconds) at the amazing miniature set!
