  He’s Back...Godzilla Returns to the Big Screen

godzillaThe new Godzilla movie, starring Bryan Cranston, has provided the inner-child of many with hope. For those of you who grew up during the 1970s and 1980s, Godzilla was such a prominent sci-fi character. Godzilla wasn’t simply a big lizard who liked to brawl. Somehow, even though you knew there was a guy inside a giant rubber suit stomping on miniature buildings, you found yourself rooting for him versus all enemies...including mankind.

addams familyThe Addams Family was a creepy and kooky comedy that aired for about two years (1964-1966).
