EPISODE 66
 – Ralph and Jorge are talking about “The Manda Movie”… well, actually it’s the 1963 Ishiro Honda film Atragon! Sure Manda is in the movie, but the guys are more impressed with Atragon aka Gotengo, a super submarine that appears to be indestructible!

Space Amoeba

EPISODE 57 – Jorge and Ralph are talking about the Ishiro Honda monster movie from 1970! Even though this movie is called Space Amoeba, it only takes place in outer space for a little bit. The majority of the film takes place on an island with … natives?! After we get finished talking about the film, we keep the recorder going and discuss toys, kaiju tv shows and general nonsense.  2.04.2019

Gamera: Super Monster

Episode53.jpg
EPISODE 53 
– Jorge and Ralph step into a new decade as they welcome Gamera into 1980 with open arms! Unfortunately for them Gamera: Super Monster is nothing but a strange plot surrounding alien invaders in a Star Destroyer fighting against a trio of Super heroines. Sure Gamera shows up from time to time, but mostly in footage we have already seen from his previous films. Bummer! 12.05.2018

Varan the Unbelievable

KP50
EPISODE 50 
– Ralph and Jorge are discussing the 1962 American version of Daikaiju Baran, aka Varan: The Unbelievable! A lot has been cut out of the original Ishiro Honda film for this version, and without knowing that ahead of time, we can tell! With only 15 minutes surviving in this version, we are chomping at the bit to see the original Japanese film. From the amazing monster suit and models, to the silly American footage, Varan is a pretty fun ride, but feels watered down. 11.26.2018

Return of Daimajin

EPISODE 48 – Ralph and Jorge are talking about the sequel to the 1966 giant statue movie. Daimajin. You would think that since Majin was setup in the first film, that we would be able to catch a glimpse of him much sooner in this one. That’s not the case. There is so little Majin stuff to talk about on this episode that the guys start talking about The Scorpion King and Mummy series.  9.20.18
