Why Godzilla?

My major is Editing, Writing and Media, and we briefly studied Godzilla in one of my advanced English classes, which is where my inspiration came from. I chose to create a website about Godzilla, and how the meaning and importance of the original 1954 Japanese film was lost when it was remade in America, and the effects of Americanization on global films. Displacing this inherently Japanese film abroad is what turned the truly terrifying, culturally significant Gojira into the pop culture icon Godzilla.
