Transcript: Godzilla by Darby Link-Newman Back story(of the character): Godzilla started as some sort of t-rex living on a remote island in Japan named monster island. When the first atomic bomb hit Hiroshima it transformed said t-rex into that guy in a sweaty rubber suit, Godzilla. The idea of Godzilla Not many people grasp the idea of Godzilla because,I'll admit, it's easy to lose yourself in the vast crumbling ruins left behind by a humongous lizard(mind the giant monster corpses). But what not many understand is that Godzilla is very serious,admittedly not all the time,but that's not the point. Godzilla's story is of the devastation of nuclear weapons and their deadly aftermath, next time you hear someone saying Godzilla is just a guy in a sweaty rubber suit remember that. Godzilla as Tanaka saw it The theme of movie as Tanaka saw was nature's revenge for creating the destructive atomic bomb. Godzilla combines the fears of Japanese people. Here is a old Japanese saying jishin, kaminari, kaji oyaji. list most fears in the world as fire ,thunder , earthquake and father. Cities fire bombed and great human loss affected the people of Japan. Tanaka chose Godzilla to speak about these topics. Cultural impact Godzilla is without a doubt one of the most recognizable symbols of Japanese pop culture and when he is taken seriously he is seen as a metaphor. Toho tried the whole giant scary monster but they very soon started gearing it towards kids, and over the years it has switched back and forth but it has settled some where in the middle. Cultural impact2: so you may have noticed that sometimes people use "zilla" as a suffix to mean this is big and scary characteristics and ursome powers Godzilla has a myriad of attributes and powers here are some: -dorsal fins -roar -atomic breath -pulse -laser eyes - basically indestructible -regeneration -really strong -radiation -frogzilla! - pretty smart Monsters If you thought Godzilla's list of powers was long than you should see the list of monsters he fights! these include: -Anguris -Rodan -king Ghidorah -mecha king Ghidorah -Desotryah -mecha Godzilla -mecha Godzilla 2 -mecha Godzilla 3 -Megagirus -Megalon -Gigan -Hedora -Baragon -Spacegodzilla -Mothera -Ebirah -Titanus -Biollantie -KingKong -large spider -Orga -king Sesar -Zilla Resources: Godzilla 2000 Godzilla on my mind by William Tsutsui personal knowledge Orga I mentioned previously that Orga is my favorite Godzilla monster(besides Godzilla) so I thought I should talk about him. Orga appers in the movie Godzilla 2000 and starts as a giant space tur--I mean UFO that crashed in the ocean a long time ago... or something. About a quarter into the movie the military dig up the UFO at which point it fly's a way and shoot's Godzilla, whoops. Then Godzilla blasts him with all a dat atomic breath goodness, Orga crashes then steals lots of information and Godzilla's DNA, the UFO make's an Orga, then they fight.


Transcript: Godzilla is a recognizable action/fictional symbol of Japanese popular culture worldwide. The earlier "Godzilla" films, especially the original "Godzilla" from 1954, portrayed Godzilla as a frightening, nuclear monster. As the series progressed, so did Godzilla, changing into a less destructive and more heroic character as the films became geared towards children. Since then, the character has fallen somewhere in the middle, sometimes portrayed as a protector of the Earth (notably Japan) from external threats, and other times portrayed as a destroyer. Godzilla is a prehistoric monster or dinosaur who first appeared and attacked Japan at the beginning of the Atomic Age. His size and powers are attributed to mutations from atomic radiation. Godzilla has rough, bumpy charcoal grey scales, a long powerful tail, and jagged bone-coloured dorsal plates. Godzilla's atomic breath is his most powerful and distinctive weapon. Godzilla is strong and dextrous, using martial arts techniques in combat. Godzilla is able to survive in the ocean for extended periods of time and is as adept a fighter underwater as he is on land. Coming Soon: Summer 2014 In August 1945, near the end of World War II, the United States dropped two atomic bombs in Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These bombs gave off deadly amounts of radiation and killed 90,000-166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000-80,000 people in Nagasaki.
