"In 1956, he first appeared on motion picture screens across the country.
His impact on audiences was instantaneous and unprecedented.
His acting technique was revolutionary. His presence... overwhelming.
He possessed more raw talent than any performer of his generation.
He soon became an international legend, a giant who took the world by storm.
Then, suddenly, at the height of his fame, he retired from motion pictures.
Now, he is back!
And he's more magnificent, more glamorous, more devastating than ever.
"I'd say in some strange way, he's been made by man. Out of mankind's violence and nuclear weapons."
— Professor Hayashida in the The Return of Godzilla's export trailer.
"When Godzilla appeared 30 years ago, it was regarded by the Odo Islanders as a legendary monster come to life. When the world is in chaos, monsters appear. Legends like this are all over the world. The return of Godzilla means the world is going to be in turmoil. I just want to send it home."
— Professor Hayashida in the The Return of Godzilla
"Godzilla has turned the heart of Tokyo into a sea of fire."
— Steve Martin in Godzilla: King of the Monsters! (1956)
"If you can't take the heat... run!"
— Godzilla 2000 theatrical trailer
"Listen, kid. There are two things you don't know about the Earth, kid. One is me. The other is Godzilla."
— Captain Gordon in Godzilla: Final Wars
"Then you have a responsibility that no man has ever had to face. You have your fear which may become reality and you have Godzilla which is reality."
— Ogata in Godzilla: King of the Monsters! (1956)
— Xillian Commander in Godzilla: Final Wars
"Look. You are not fooling anybody when you say that what happened fifteen years ago was a natural disaster, alright? It was not an earthquake. It wasn't a typhoon, okay? You're lying because you're hiding something out there. I'm right, aren't I? I DESERVE ANSWERS! Y'see? There it is again. This is what caused everything in the first place, don't you see that? And it is going to send us back to the stone age! You have no idea what's coming."
— Joseph Brody in Godzilla (2014)
"Nature has a way sometimes of reminding man of just how small he is. She occasionally throws up the terrible offsprings of our pride and carelessness, to remind us of how puny we really are in the face of a tornado, an earthquake, or a Godzilla. The reckless ambitions of man are often dwarfed by their dangerous consequences. For now Godzilla, that strangely... innocent and tragic monster has gone to earth. Whether he returns or not, or is never again seen by human eyes, the things he has taught us, remain..."
— Steve Martin in Godzilla 1985
"Watch as Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich transform the most iconic movie monster of all time into a box-headed, chicken-legged, no-atomic-breath-having, Jay-Leno-chinned, stupid-faced, flat-nosed piece of ***!"
Godzilla is huge. And by huge, I mean really fucking huge. He's so big he makes the T. Rex from Jurassic Park look like something out of one of those fruity calendars with pictures of newborn kittens on them, and unlike a lot of epically giant things out there he has the good sense to use his massive size as a means with which to destroy anything that crosses his path, smashing buildings with his giant fucking tail, punching pagodas until they become giant flaming explosions, and using commuter trains as nunchucks with which to pummel the life of out other giant mutated monsters that get in the way of his mission to completely eradicate all human life on the planet.
"Die you metaphor of a technocratic future destroying our ancient traditions! Die you rubber representation of post-atomic horror! Die you spawner of countless B-grade sequels in badly dubbed English!"
— 'Baka' Kincaid, Plan 7 of 9 from Outer Space
