    Giant Robot, & the Gargantua's were clearly the cream of the Jap monster movies and were always my favorites .... The Giant Robot song still brings a tear to my eye when I hear it...

    My favorite was always Rodan. I loved watching it every time it was on when I was a kid.

    You got it!

    Me and a bunch of pals used to go see them at a "Jerry Lewis Cinema" that was around the corner from my childhood home...

    There was one about a man with two heads. The body was this big dumb guy in overalls and the other head was a psycho killer. It scared the day lights out of me as a kid.
    Salem's Lot was freaky too.

    Mothra was definitely the weak link in the monster gang.... The other monsters always had to work a little harder to pick up the slack that Mothra created
