Roddenberry’s vision was of a future where all men are brothers. (Sorry, gay guys.) There would be no interpersonal conflict in the utopian Federation, which makes writing for Star Trek a unique challenge. Fortunately, the show happened to be about a bunch of maniacs piled into a starship zooming around space, looking for trouble. Yes, I realize I just made Captain Kirk sound like some kind of space greaser, but, in my defense, that’s exactly what he was. Kirk existed to punch half the things and have sex with the other half. If he had just been a fist attached to a penis, his job performance would not have suffered in the least.

This weekend belonged to Godzilla. I watched with rapt attention as he woke from hibernation, swam the Pacific Ocean, and battled the mighty, mating MOTU only to take a brief nap and then crash back under the waves, returning to the ocean depths from which he came.
What a stud, amirite? Sure, he knocks s--t over, but it’s all on the way to restore natural order to a world he arguably doesn’t have to care about. Some monsters just have altruistic motives to their city smashing, I guess. Whereas most others simply want to populate the earth and together crunch every skyline from here to Tokyo.
In that light, Godzilla has downright commendable character. I’d certainly buy the guy a drink.
