Editor’s note: Godzilla has been excluded from the following list for two reasons. One, there is a high profile US remake of the Toho favorite coming out in 2014 which will be the topic a number of Monster Movie Podcast episodes in the comings year. And, two, if included, the show was in danger of becoming dominated by the popular lizard. So, fear not Godzilla fans, the Monster Movie Podcast will be discussing Gojira in the coming months!!
