“Godzilla is honored in Tokyo”

Why was Godzilla born in the Pacific Ocean? Is is appropriate to honor something so destructive? Why or Why not?

  1. I think that if they re-create an old-fashioned film it won't be the same. The creator diid not intend to have the movie "rebooted" in a new fashion. He was born in the Pacific Ocean because the creator thought the creature would attack Tokyo.(Which is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean.)

    1. How does the fact he was "rebooted" have anything to do with the amount he's destroyed? She's asking about if he deserves the honor after all he's destroyed, I don't really see how being rebooted answers her question.

  2. Godzilla was born in the Pacific ocean because the Pacific is the ocean that surrounds Japan, so it is a place the creators of the original Godzilla would be familiar with. In my opinion it can be apposite to honor something destructive. To give a crude example, don't most countries recognize soldiers and war heroes? I'm not trying to disrespect veterans in any way, their sacrifices are not something to be taken lightly. But in a sense they are getting honored for destroying and killing. Godzilla is a fictional character, he never actually killed anyone. So I see no problem in honoring him/it in such a way.

    1. Have you heard about Hiroshima? There is a connection between the creation of Godzilla and the atom bomb.

  3. I think that it is a bad idea to re-create such a classic movie, and a Godzilla head in Tokyo, that is just asking for trouble.

  4. For the creators of the head is is appropriate because that part of Tokyo has been destroyed many times by Godzilla and it would attract tourists. Also, its only a head what harm could it do. Its not like it breathes fire like the dragon in diagon ally at universal.
