war of the gargantuas

What role does nostalgia play in our tastes as film fans? During my October 2010 quest to visit and revisit some lesser known Japanese monster movies from days gone by I have had many occasions to jump into the deep end of nostalgia and drift away to the land of the daikaiju beasts. It is a place that formed my whole opinion of horror movies until I was about 9 years old. I learned to love, trust and identify with these monsters.
