Strap on your scuba gear, because Legend of Dinosaurs and Monster Birds is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.
Review in a Nutshell: A groovy, boozy Seventies movie with a fashionably hard-boiled geologist protagonist and a pair of completely inert giant “dinosaurs”, Legend of Dinosaurs and Monster Birds was allegedly the most expensive science fiction film yet produced by Toei Studios when it premiered in 1977. It’s a baffling little creature feature with lots of symbolic camera-work and questionable wardrobe choices.
“Now, pretend like it’s killing you!”

Hold on to your fur boots and your flint ax-heads, because Yor: The Hunter from the Future is undeniably The Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.
Review in a Nutshell: A zany mash-up of post-apocalyptic and prehistoric films, Yor: The Hunter from the Future is buoyed up by the charming performance of Reb Brown as a futuristic caveman with perfect hair and a winning smile. Also included are lethal robots, savage tribes, and giant rubber dinosaurs.
The infamous hang-gliding scene.

Fry up some chicken, because Carnosaur is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Katherin the Great.
Review in a Nutshell: Carnosaur is a gruesome, low-budget, Roger Corman-produced Jurassic Park knock-off. Katherin does not appreciate its many rich, deep layers of nuance and social commentary.

Our slow-burning Godzilla theme continues with an exploration of everyone’s least favorite American G-film, Roland Emmerich’s 1998 “classic”, Godzilla. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to listen to Sean and I discuss our first tastes of colossal cinematic disappointment, everything this film does wrong, and a few things that it does right.
ERRATA: Some corrections are in order. Parthenogenesis is a type of asexual reproduction, and some lizard species do in fact engage in it. Also, the 1994 American Godzilla script by Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio actually predates the publication of the Shusuke Kaneko Heisei-era Gamera trilogy, which began in 1995, so to claim the former was ripping off the latter was inaccurate.

Godzilla’s not dead but merely resting, and we’re continuing the Godzilla theme coverage with a review of the much-reviled Godzilla’s Revenge, aka All Monsters Attack. Please note: this film contains neither Godzilla nor revenge, but it does have some harrowing things to say about the plight of latch-key children in post-industrial Tokyo.
