It's a broad question, but I'll keep it as simplistic as I can. Ultimately I love the concept of giant monsters and how their stories hone a particular reflection of our world--Positive or negative.

Yet at the same time the way Godzilla movies are made are also important to me. I love how unique they look and how they reflect the times of a foreign culture. Their use of practical effects, playing with different tones and ideas as well as the time crunch the filmmakers are pushed through is vastly impressive. Yet, despite this, they are very overlooked and underrated styles of cinema. It's a form of movie making worth looking at seriously even if we don't always take the films themselves seriously.

So in the end they represent the things I hold most dear about making movies: Talent vs. time. Resourcefulness instead of overindulgence. Creativity over naturalism.

I was first introduced to the Godzilla franchise with Godzilla power Hour cartoon. Also I was aware of the series since Godzilla toys were very popular back in the 90's and my mom is a big Mothra fan and my Dad is a King Kong fan. But I digress... My first Live Action Godzilla movie was Godzilla vs Monster Zero, I rented it from a movie rental place somewhere in the mid 90's, I think I was around 6 years old. I was disappointed that Godzooky wasn't in it but hey I was a child at the time.  After that I kind of lost interest in the series for a time until Godzilla 1998 came out and I was a little confused that it looked more like a Dinosaur than what I last remembered but heck I watched and even got at least some of the toys. Then around the mid 2000's my uncle (big Godzilla fan) gave us a lot of taped VHS of all the Godzilla and Godzilla related movies. When I heard they were going to make another American Godzilla movie, around early 2014 me and my brother found are old VHS player and started our Godzilla marathon but then we discovered that sadly half of the VHS tapes are unwatchable now. But In recent years I have been collecting the Godzilla films on DVD/Blu-ray.

He was my first superhero, the franchise and the character have brought me together with some of the most wonderful people in my life (including my wife), and above all just makes me happier than all other fictions put together when I need a little boost.  Pretty short and simple, but it doesn't need to be complicated.  The Big G is number #1.

The fact that he always fights for what he believes in. The fact that no matter what, he'll always stand up to a challenge and will fight until the end. The fact that, in the end, he always finds a way to overcome and win. 

I feel like I can relate to him. He deals with a lot of stuff all the time, but he keeps going no matter what and does what he needs to do, even if not everybody agrees with him.

The fact that he is a dynamic character. He can be good, evil or something in between - something that would not work with many characters. He can be perceived in different ways depending on how someone wants to see him. Everyone has a different view of Godzilla and sees him differently. 

Ultimately, I love him because he does what he wants to do, and doesn't let anyone stop him from doing so. I feel like the song "My Way" from Frank Sinatra couldn't properly fit him and his ideas any better:

A.  Godzilla  is  not  a  wimp  like  Big  Foot.

B.  You're not  going  shout  Bible Curses at  him  and  drive him  off like  a  mere  demon.

C. Flame  throwing  dinosaur  monsters,  super  weapons,  tanks  and  helicopter gunships  are  cool.

D. I always  thought  of  Godzilla as a  tornado,  a  force  I  see  as  unstoppable.

E.  My  dogs  like  Godzilla.
