Well the American Godzilla had the serious danger that Matthew Broderick and Maria Pitillo could breed.

You watch you're mouth, young duckling! Breeding Broderiks...the very idea (Harump...)

My take on the Godzilla/Kaiju universe, will be that man is his own worst enemy, and the monsters are a punishment for our cruelty towards our own kind.
And defeating the beasts will take a unified effort, dependant on letting go our collective egos.
Or, sumin' like that...

Which gives me yet another reason to criticize the American Godzilla film. "Hey, sure, mankind's arrogance and inconsideration created this monster, but look it's no biggie because we can put it down with 12 well-placed missiles. Problem solved! Yay!"

Well in all fairness Gojira ended with the monster dying, though at least they introduced some moral quandary about the weapon.

And the weapon wasn't something that the military had already been buying by the thousands since the mid-1980's.

And the military didn't do more damage than the monster.

Yep...
How do you can miss a target that big?
Sure, a fast runner or flier, yeah, but it wasen't till the 80's that tank guns started getting 95% hits.
More proof that Godzilla is the tough guy. Slow swagger, lots of fire, and that look that says..."Ya think ya can take me? Well go ahead on..."

That reminds me, someone needs to make a giant monster movie set in Texas. (The Giant Gila Monster doesn't count.)

Man, you can tell I haven't seen this movie since I was a kid - about 40 years ago. Where is the setting for Valley of the Gwanji? I always assumed it was Texas. But perhaps it was Nevada, New Mexico, or Arizona?

Wikipedia says it takes place in Mexico and was filmed in Spain.

There's also an earlier movie derived from the same screen treatment, called The Beast of Hollow Mountain. I've never seen it, but by most accounts, it isn't very good.
