Batten down the hatches and stow the sails, because Matango: Attack of the Mushroom People is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the Japanese movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M. and many mushrooms.
Review in a Nutshell: Although M.O.M. disagrees, I feel that Matango is a cinematic rarity in that it is both bleak, nihilistic, and psychedelic. The special effects by Eiji Tsuburaya and company as well as the set dressing are especially good. Who is the real monstrous mushroom? Who, indeed?

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.

Don’t try to salvage giant alien robots, because Terror of Mechagodzilla is
The Greatest Movie EVER!
Review in a Nutshell: The final entry in the ‘Showa’ Godzilla series, Terror of Mechagodzilla boasts the return of Ishiro Honda and a darker, more somber tone than many previous films. The seriousness is a bit of a mismatch with the silver jumpsuits and the fan-blade butt dinosaurs.
This movie contains:
Astromen from Outer Space.
