I’ve just completed my Godzilla collection! After years and years of searching, I now own every single Godzilla film on DVD, including every Showa era, Heisei era and Millennium era film. I also own all the Gameras, Mothras, Rodans and other assorted kaiju too. I’m so OCD when it comes to my love of kaiju that I actually went through my collection and organized everything by era. I also added 8 non-kaiju films and broke them up into two categories – “The Early Years” comprised of the Giant Ape Trilogy of KING KONG, SON OF KONG and MIGHTY JOE YOUNG and “The Missing Links” comprised of 5 American Science Fiction films that “bridge the gap” between Kong and Godzilla. Enjoy!
