The second part of our arc about the Legendary Entertainment monster franchise analyzes the origin of the King of monsters himself, Godzilla. The storied history of the leviathan lizard begins in post-WWII Japan and spawns countless sequels, each getting progressivey sillier. What do you do when you're not sure the audience is interested anymore in metaphors about the horrors of weapons of mass destruction but still want to put butts in seats? What do you do when just one giant monster attacking the world has become blasé? Well, apparently the answer is to throw some flying saucers in there, combine a dozen franchises and you're ready for a rubber suit Royal Rumble.
