Godzilla: King of the Monsters
(1) You could say that Godzilla was "Man-made," but this isn't one of our trick questions. The words, "What has happened here is entirely beyond the scope of man's imagination," indicated that it wasn't something that was man-made.(2) B (3) A loud boom and the sound of the ocean bubbling. (4) He had to attend to some field experiments. (5) On the articles he was reading and writing.

(6) No (7) Once a year (8) The photograph that was taken of the creature on Odo Island. (9) He thought the military would turn it into a weapon of mass destruction. (10) He wanted to accompany Ogata during the dive to place the device.

Godzilla
While many species possess cells that recover and reform themselves, Godzilla's could do it in a remarkably short period of time.
 
Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

Lights, Camera, Trivia
..................................
The film's opening narrative didn't answer the question of what left the city of Tokyo in ruins, but it did allude to the creature that caused the destruction. The question is, which (if any) of those words indicated that it was a creature or some force of nature, and not
something that was man-made, like an atomic bomb?

2. There was some doubt as to whether or not the story was being told posthumously. That was because Steve Martin (Raymond Burr) was lying motionless beneath some rubble when the film began. Which of the following indicated that it wasn't?


A. He started coughing
B. One of his hands moved
C. The film's opening narrative answered that question.


3. Godzilla's distinctive roar was like an air siren in that it provided some warning. Another harbinger was the creature's thunderous footsteps. What was heard while the creature surfacing?

4. Let's backtrack to Steve's arrival in Japan. He was supposed to meet his old college friend at the airport, but Dr. Serizawa (Akihiko Hirata) sent one of his associates. What reason
was given for his absence?

5. When Steve was asked if he noticed anything unusual during his flight over the Pacific, he said no. But he admitted that even if there had been something, he probably wouldn't have noticed. Where was his attention focused?

6. They say the worst part is often not knowing. Did the residents of Tokyo know what they were dealing with when Steve remarked, "Panic began to spread all over Japan like a creeping illness"?

7. According to legend, the natives of Odo Island sacrificed some of their own daughters to appease the King of the Monsters. How often was that done?

8. There were varying accounts of Godzilla's actual height. For instance, Steve reported that the creature was at least as tall as a 30-story building while
Dr. Yamane estimated the creature to be over 400 feet tall. What was Dr. Yamane examining when he came to that conclusion?

9. Dr. Serizawa's Oxygen Destroyer could have saved hundreds; if not thousands of lives had he used his invention to destroy the creature sooner. Why did he wait as long as he did?

10. When Dr. Serizawa finally agreed to let the military use his Oxygen Destroyer it was under two conditions. One being they could never use the device again. What was the second?
Fight or flight? While the King of the Monsters has been repeatedly driven back into the depths of the Pacific Ocean, it has never run. If it even could, it should, from the beast that poses the biggest threat to its existence - the pharmaceutical companies. What was it about the creature's RG-1 cells that made it an even bigger target than it already was?
