My favorite was always Godzilla 1985. Godzilla was my childhood, pretty sure I've seen all of them, if not most of them. But yeah, 1985 was my fave and I'm pretty sure that was the 1st one I ever saw too.
I was at comic con this past summer and I saw the teaser they showed for the reboot. Had no idea they were gonna show it and I nearly shit a brick haha! I really liked Monsters, so I'm stoked to see what that director will bring to the table.
1985 is my 2nd favorite behind the original 1954 Gojira. I still have no idea what the gigantic tick-like bug things are in the ship at the beginning haha
And yeah, the details about the new film sounds promising. Bummer it won't be out until 2014
