    Re-watch value.

    February 22, 2015 by JakeNBake

    Out of all the films, which one do you find has the most re-watch value?

    Not your favorite, or the "best" - but the one you can pop in anytime. 

    Personally, I'd have to go with Godzilla vs Biollante. Always fun to watch the miniature effects.

    Easy question: what are your earliest memories of the Big G and co.?

    For me it's watching my 3-VHS pack of King of the Monsters, Godzilla's Revenge and Terror of Mechagodzilla to death in the early to mid nineties. I distinctly recall Revenge seemed stupid even back then when I first saw it. The video stores sometimes offered a rare and glorious Heisei film for weekend enjoyment, and when the ads for the movie hit, I flipped shit. It was exciting.

    Then... it happened. Seriously, I remember a six-year-old me asking as I walked out of the theater; "Where was his atomic breath?"

    Still waiting on an answer.

    Anyhoo, enough of me and my crushed dreams, what are your oldest kaiju recollections?

    Godzilla solo film?

    August 14, 2014 by JakeNBake

    Seriously, think about it. Could there ever be another good Godzilla film that doesn't feature any monster-on-monster action? Everyone likes the Vs formula, the new series even started with it. Would we accept a one monster film?

    Gojira and Return of Godzilla both made it work, and with advancements in technology and a good budget I think Toho could pull it off.... but, would they?

    First blog ever.

    As a child I watched the hell out of a 3-VHS Godzilla movie collection. King of the Monsters, All Monsters Attack and Terror of Mechagodzilla. This is where my love of the genre was born. I remember renting Heisei films from blockbuster, and let me tell you, Netflix doesn't come close to the video-store experience.  Anyway, after Roland Emmerich teamed up with the cast of the Simpsons to kill my childhood, my interest in Godzilla faded. Thus, I lost my classic VHS collection. Sad, I know. So, when I re-discovered the Big G in high-school I started collecting kaiju DVDs. So, what you got?

    Mine as of today:

    • King Kong (1933)
    • Gojira
    • Godzilla Raids Again
    • King Kong vs Godzilla
    • Mothra vs Godzilla
    • Ghidra! The Three-Headed Monster
    • Monster Z…
