As stupid as the Roland Emmerich #Godzilla is, I can separate my dislike for it from my childhood love and nostalgia. I was eight when the flick was released.
At the time I loved it. I had it on VHS, as well as a Zilla backpack, all the Taco Bell toys (including a squirt gun, with Zilla's mouth opening to spray the water) and storybook adaptation.
I remember so vividly the advertising blowing my mind (genius stuff... "This bus is as big as his foot!") and taglines and yes, back to Taco Bell, the ads with the little Chihuahua saying "Here lizard, lizard."
I adored this flick when I was little. Finally after a several years of watching the old monster movies on TBS and reruns of the Hannah Barbera show on Cartoon Network, we had a HUGE budgeted version. Man. I almost forgive how bad the movie is just based on nostalgia alone.
Anyways. Here's my real point to posted before I went on a childhood nostalgia-fueled tangent. I found this online. I used to own it. If I remember right it came from Taco Bell, and would grip their large size soda cups. I desperately wish I still had it.

This is me: I watched 30+ #Godzilla movies in a week and a year watching over 1,000 episodes of Dark Shadows.
