Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla: All For the Want of a Doctor Pepper

Has it really been just over a year since the last installment in our Godzilla movie theme? The answer is “yes”, but now Anthony Wendel is back to talk about the first entry in the Heisei Series (technically filmed during the Showa Period), The Return of Godzilla, aka Gojira (1984), aka Godzilla 1985. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to download our review of the film. Topics of discussion include the recently-resolved difficulties of acquiring the original Japanese version of the film, late Cold War nuclear anxiety, and more.

The Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrill theme refuses to die, unlike King Ghidorah in Destroy All Monsters, a 1968 monster-bash that was originally intended to be the final entry in the Godzilla film franchise.

Review in a Nutshell: A Danish / American co-production sponsored in part by American International Pictures, Reptilicus is one part giant monster movie, one part travelogue, and one part puzzling artifact of the mysteries of international productions. Apparently, in the Danish version of the film, there is at least one more musical number, and also the titular monster can fly.

FINAL THOUGHT:

This is an actual screen capture that from Reptilicus, highlighting the movie’s “spectacular” special effects.
