Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla: Heisei Lepidopteran Shenanigans

It’s Christmas, and this year we bring the gift that keeps on giving when Tom and I talk about the 1992 Godzilla vs. Mothra: The Battle for Earth, not to be confused with the 1964 Mothra vs. Godzilla.

Review in a Nutshell: If you have any affection in your heart for super robot anime or giant rubber monsters, you owe it to yourself to check out Pacific Rim.

Don’t act like you didn’t see this coming…

Place your bets on your favorite giant marauding reptile, because Komodo vs Cobra is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Unlike The Curse of the Komodo from the same director, Glori-Anne Gilbert does not get naked in this film.  Also, there are giant, computer generated endangered species, and they fight.

Eeeper’s Going to Kill Me.
