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.

Bone up on your ancient Egyptian heiroglyphics, because Stargate is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Like many of Emmerich’s other films, Stargate is long on production value and short on plot. Spader and Russell are able to bring life and personality to their characters, though, and the costumes and sets still look great nearly two decades after the film’s debut.
