Review in a Nutshell: While not director Ishiro Honda’s best Godzilla-related work, King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962) deserves credit for innovating the franchise in ways that established patterns that ran throughout the Showa Era.
Fire up your giant robots and get ready to “drift”, because Pacific Rim: Uprising is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: A film filled with baffling narrative and editorial decisions, Pacific Rim: Uprising is a prime example of what happens when artistic choices give way to financial and marketing ones.
Hang on to your drill bits, because Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: A film that is at once incredibly simplistic and needlessly convoluted, Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla is less of a movie-going experience and more a springboard for discussion about what happens when giant monster movies go wrong.
You can’t keep a good (or even a mediocre) Godzilla down, and this time we’re looking at the aptly named Godzilla 2000 (aka Godzilla: Millenium), the first entry in Toho’s “Millenium” series of giant monster movies. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to join Jeremy and I was we share our experiences of seeing Godzilla in the theater and as we apply a perhaps too-critical lens to a movie featuring noodly space aliens and Hiroshi Abe’s impeccable fashion-sense.
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. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to here us muse about giant moths, overly invasive archaeology, and what dating prospects should await anyone who dares to kidnap the Cosmos.
The years-spanning (annual?) tradition continues with the next entry of Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla as Mom and I take breathless look at the 2016 Hideaki Anno / Shinji Higuchi joint, Shin Godzilla. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to download our review of the film, which features much discussion on Japanese politics, “scrap and rebuild”, and the imagery of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.

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. It has some of the best special effects and production design you’re likely to see for some time, and it manages to be uplifting and hopeful rather than gritty and grimdark.
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.
Lay off the Irish jokes, because Gorgo is the Greatest Movie EVER!
This movie contains:
Steven Seagal!?! (Not really.)
Military Stock Footage.
Greasers greeting a Flaming Doom.
