Back from Destroy All Monsters! with Nate.
Mike: How was the movie?
Me: About what you’d expect. Giant monsters battling each other.
Mike: Uh huh.
Me: Though the ending still gets to me. It shows Godzilla, 60 years later, sitting on his home’s porch dressed in a white kimono and greying at the temples. His friend â€ªAnguirusâ€¬ is sitting next to him, and he says, “You knowâ€¦What the hell were we fighting about back then anyway?” And â€ªAnguirusâ€¬ says, “I don’t know, man. I don’t know.” And Godzilla replies, “In the end, we were only destroyingâ€¦ourselves.” Then a single tear trails down his scaly cheek.
Mike: Yeah, that didn’t happen.
Me: Wouldn’t it be awesome if it did? I’d pay to see movies like that.
