Godzilla Cultural Impact Toho invested 60 million yen for the first Godzilla movie. It was three times the budget of most Japanese films. Godzilla is the world's oldest film franchise, and is also longest. Godzilla is Japanses most durable cultural export. Godzilla even has admires. For college professors, to North Korea's dictators.Godzilla is also a pioneer somewhat. He is the first creation of postwar japanese culture. Also to get multinational "exposure and a claim." He has influence japanese invention that have became major in pop culture. Like ultra man, speed racer, power rangers, and pokemon. He has been in a Rose Parade, he has won a MTV life time award, even Mia Farrow said that Godzilla was her favorite movie. In America huge cats, dogs, hamster have been named Godzilla. Some people even combine the suffix zilla with other words. He has even be place in the the National FatherHood Initiative for a commercial. "Godzilla and Postwar Japan." UCLA International Institute. UCLA International Institute, n.d. Web. 01 May 2013. In some of the Godzilla movies they talk about issues more then just nuclear weapons. Like bullying in Godzilla movie (Godzilla's Revenge), pollution (Godzilla vs. Hedorah), and greed (Godzilla vs. Mothra/The Thing. Godzilla had themes as well. They weren't deep in thought but were simple. In Godzilla vs King Kong the theme was a anti- American views. It was basically a showdown between Japan and America. There was a myth that Godzilla won in the Japanese version of the film and King Kong won in the American version, but there was only one version and in the movie it was a tie. In the 1954 Godzilla it's theme was basically about the memory on World War 2. It refers to specify to the bombings and the nuclear testing. But as the years progress Godzilla becomes a protector of Japan and not a enemy. At the same time he his not always friendly and can be unpredictable. Also he then becomes force of nature like volcanoes, earthquakes, and hurricanes. This make him unpredictable in which makes the Japanese vulnerable. The Godzilla movies reflect periods of time of vulnerability. Such as to multinational, political, and economic force far from Japan control. Like the Cold War, and the oil shocks (1970s).

When i was looking up Godzilla I had to be careful what site to go on because some of them are bias and only express someones personal perspective of Godzilla. So I only pick the sites the was made by Toho Studios or the UClA International Institute and any other reliable website. At first when I was trying to pick a topic it was difficult for me. So using a guide i used in my composition unit it help me. So following the research process helps.
Taking notes can be difficult if you're not using the correct site. Sometimes the site my not have all the info you need or it gives you the wrong information. Plus the info could be someones personal feelings about the topic. Such as fan sites, Wikipedia, wiki, or Godzilla Throne and some other websites i found that are not the best reliable. Unlike those sites i used Toho Kingdom, UCIA International Institute, and Imdb.
Planning was very in important in this research process other wise you are stuck and don't know what to do. I did not plan all of this on paper but in my head. Which i shouldn't have done because sometimes i would forget what I had to do and i rarely looked at the rubric for guidance. I only look at it a couple of times and started working on it. I was taking notes the wrong notes on Wikipedia, so i had to find some other website which was hard because most of this sites I were bias.
I had trouble just taking notes in turn took me a long time. I should of had a plan where I would find reliable website and than take notes. Also I should have figure which part of the multi-genre I should do first. I was mainly going back and fore. Next time I would have a plan, find reliable websites, and make sure to use the rubric and follow step by step. This way I would do better next time in the future. Otherwise I will end up doing what I did last time. In the is project I learn a lot besides the planning and the research processes.
I learn a lot about Godzilla most of this info I did not know about him. At first I all I knew about Godzilla was that he was created by Toho, he is a giant monster, and someone was in that suite. But now I know that he was more than that. He was a pop cultural phenomenon, and a icon. He demonstrates Japan vulnerability to the world in all the movies. He was in comic books, video games, and tv shows. He's roar was used in some other non Toho movies as well. This is why he is called King of the Monsters. 1972: Godzilla vs Gigan Aliens plan to take over the Earth by using Gigan and Ghidorah, by controlling them. But the only thing that can stop them is Godzilla, and Anguirus. IMDb. IMDb.com, 1990-2013. Web. 02 May 2013. "Godzilla and Postwar Japan - UCTV - University of California Television."
