Movie Review: Godzilla [ ゴジラ | Gojira ] (1954) | The 1st Godzilla Film

I first learned of Godzilla in the 90s. I was too young back that time. I feel happy whenever I saw a movie trailer of it in a TV commercial. The movie trailer is black and white. Later on, Cable channel is booming in every home. I was able to watch another Godzilla movie on cable TV. As far as I can remember, Star Movies channel aired it. The Godzilla movie I watched is colored but I wasn't able to watch it fully. Just only half of it.

I'm already an adult and I realized, I've never watched a full Godzilla movie. Any of it. I mean, In the past, I watched some of it but I'm not always on schedule. You can't pause or replay movies on cable TV during those times. Nowadays, you can watch them anywhere online - free or paid. So, I decided to watch the first Godzilla movie.
