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. CLICK HERE or on the image above to download our review of the film, in which I find the pacing of the film a tad overwhelming and Mom proves herself to be a secret Anguirus-hater.

Like an atomic dinosaur slumbering in a volcano, the Stomp Romp / Zilla Thrilla theme was not dead, but merely resting. Join Mike Dent, Tony Wendel, and myself as we shake off the dust of ages to talk about perhaps the strangest, most surreal entry in the Heisei series, Godzilla vs. Biollante. CLICK HERE or on the image above to download our review of the film, which now features 20% more Space Godzilla and Shinji Higuchi gossip by volume.

It’s that time again. Time for another Godzilla movie review. Time for the three Godzilla fans in the audience to rejoice and everyone else to despair. This time, Mike Dent and I dish on Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, the penultimate Showa-era Godzilla film. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to download our review of the film, featuring much love for shady Interpol agents and the shaggy King Caesar.

Our slow-burning Godzilla theme continues with an exploration of everyone’s least favorite American G-film, Roland Emmerich’s 1998 “classic”, Godzilla. CLICK HERE or on the banner above to listen to Sean and I discuss our first tastes of colossal cinematic disappointment, everything this film does wrong, and a few things that it does right.
ERRATA: Some corrections are in order. Parthenogenesis is a type of asexual reproduction, and some lizard species do in fact engage in it. Also, the 1994 American Godzilla script by Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio actually predates the publication of the Shusuke Kaneko Heisei-era Gamera trilogy, which began in 1995, so to claim the former was ripping off the latter was inaccurate.

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. Please note: this film contains neither Godzilla nor revenge, but it does have some harrowing things to say about the plight of latch-key children in post-industrial Tokyo. Click on the banner image or the title above to download our review of the film.
