Episode 86: Gojira (1954) / Godzilla: King of the Monsters
Dynamic violence! Savage action! Spectacular thrills! This episode has it all as Kyle joins us again to pay homage to the mighty monarch of movie monsters, the original Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla) from 1954. We'll examine the film's themes of nuclear devastation and scientific responsibility, point out the changes made for the American version, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and speculate on the upcoming battle between Godzilla and King Kong. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and much complaining about the Roland Emmerich remake.
