    Over 50 years later and still holds up like a sonofabitch. Terrifying, awe inspiring, gut wrenching, haunting. I mean, holy shit, the mother holding her three kids as Godzilla closes in close by telling not to worry, they'll be with their dad soon. The palpable fear. The terror of Godzilla AND the atom bomb.

It is however, better than the latter because it does go some what different to its OT equivalent, and I believe less engaged in retreading old ground that that entry, despite what some may think. Yes J.J. Abrams has…
