Karate Hippies vs Space Roaches

Godzilla vs Gigan, the Greatest Movie EVER!

Despite the fact that you could defeat the bad guys with a large can of Raid(TM),

Godzilla vs Gigan is the Greatest Movie EVER!

This movie features:


Gigan, Scourge of Space!

(In retrospect, it probably was a poor choice of words

to describe Gigan using the phrase “chicken-head”.)


Anguirus, the poor man's Gamera.

We root for the under-dog!

Also featuring:

Don't point that thing at me, buddy.

Corn-wielding Hippies!


Space Roaches!

And of, course…


The Showa Era Godzilla!


Get mean for Akira!

Don’t forget to show your support for forcing Mom to watch Akira.


  1. Ian says:

    I think about the whole make M.O.M. watch Akira issue you could make a deal that she makes you watch something your wouldn’t usually want to watch and then you could bot h do reviews.

  2. Ginger says:

    I second Ian’s suggestion!

  3. Will says:

    I concur with the aforementioned proposal vigourously!

  4. Railith says:

    Godzilla sounds like he’s talking through a voice box. 😦

  5. Derek says:

    Wow great review, those Gigan screenshots from really take me back. I sadly haven’t seen any Godzilla undubbed. I only ever saw the dubbed laserdiscs of Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (with King Caesar), Gigan and the Smog Monster.

    I agree that it’s only fair that if you make your mom watch Akira that you should watch something your mom suggests you normally wouldn’t watch.

    Making M.O.M. watch Akira would be awesome. But having her watch Urotsukidoji: The Legend Of The Overfiend would be even more awesome. πŸ˜›

    I have to agree that M.O.M. is my favorite co-host as well.

  7. Kidder says:

    forget Akira, make M.O.M watch MD Geist! BOTH OF THEM!!! >.

  8. gooberzilla says:

    aaron, shame on you for even suggesting such a thing. Moms are not meant to be subjected to anything involving tentacle porn.

    I want Mom to continue co-hosting, and so inflicting M.D.Geist on her at this early stage of her Full Blown Nerd development would be both unwise and premature.

    By the way, thanks to the traitorous notions espoused by Ian, Ginger, Will, and Derek, I had to agree to watch (and possibly review) Love Actually in order for Mom to agree to watch Akira. I hope you ingrates appreciate the sacrifices I make; I BLEED FOR YOU, PEOPLE!!! I BLEED FOR YOU!

  9. Winter says:

    Love Actually?

    Personally, if I wanted to torture someone, I’d make them watch All Dogs Go to Heaven. But that’s mainly because that’s the movie you’d choose if you wanted to torture ME. My hatred for that movie knows few bounds…

  10. HaloJones-Fan says:

    Heh. In WoW parlance, Anguiris would be considered the “tank”–a guy with lots of HP…and really nothing else going on. His job is to run up and let all the enemies hit him, so that the other party members can use their super attacks without being molested.

    Also, for another (but similar) take on the movie:

    MOM watching Akira: Meh. Akira had really good animation, but you need Cliff’s Notes to understand it, and I don’t think she’d be into that.

  11. eeeper says:

    If I wanted to torture myself I’d watch any of the Charlie’s Angels movies. Utter, utter bovine bowel movement-ite. The first film was boring as sin, the promise of hot girls kicking ass destroyed by crap casting, terrible music, bad fight choreography (by Yu Wu Ping’s brother no less!) and a criminal misuse of Bill Murray’s skills. And I only got as far as the trailer for the second film and that was enough!

  12. Keith says:

    In the old Japanese laserdisc I had of this movie, when the monsters talk to one another, it’s accompanied by comic book word bubbles.

    And that hippie don’t need no gun — he’s armed with an endless supply of corn on the cob. I’d like to see him team up with those two swingin’ bachelors from Megalon.

  13. Patrick Macias says:

    Swinging Bachelors? I’m pretty sure both of them are as gay as geese.

  14. gooberzilla says:

    SHHHHHHH! You’ll blow their cover!
