What is it about the Japanese that all of their movie monsters have to be gigantic-sized? Even when they did their version of Frankenstein (Frankenstein Conquers the World, etc), they had to make him skyscraper-sized.

I only remember one Japanese monster movie (The H-Man) that didn't have a giant monster. Are there others?

Well, there certainly are a lot of examples of giant Japanese movie monsters, that's for sure. Maybe it's because model Tokyos are really inexpensive over there.

I think Joe has this one nailed down . . .

With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting high tension wires down
Helpless people on a subway train
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them
He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town

Oh no, they say he's got to go
Go go Godzilla
Oh no, there goes Tokyo
Go go Godzilla
