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. 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.

Has it really been just over a year since the last installment in our Godzilla movie theme?

featuring Thomas Pandich of Tomics! By Tom!!! and the Alter Ego’s podcast.

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.
