Godzilla vs. Godzilla

When the U.S. attempted to make a Godzilla movie I was really excited. I went and saw it opening night. Um, the only problem with the wasn't Godzilla! First of all, this might seem sexist but I always thought of Godzilla as a male creature not a female. Godzilla is also a man made creation that comes back to haunt man. It's as reckless as a tornado, earthquake or an atomic weapon. It has no regard for man. Godzilla simply destroys the city then returns to the ocean leaving the people shocked and feeling small and helpless. In the U.S. version Godzilla is a doting mom, caring for her brood of eggs as she gently runs through the city dodging military aircraft. Oh, and one more thing, no nuclear fire breath....really?
