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



Varan the Unbelievable

– 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


The Mysterians


EPISODE 45 – Jorge and Ralph are talking about Ishiro Honda’s 1957 sci-fi war film, The Mysterians. The plot is simple enough. A race of strange visitors from outer space come to Earth and will live here peacefully under two conditions. We give them 3km square feet of land and, oh yeah, they’re gonna need women!! All bets are off as far as the Earth is concerned! 8.31.18




EPISODE 40 – Jorge and Ralph are talking about the 1963 Ishiro Honda horror film also known as Attack of the Mushroom People! What happens when you take the cast of Gilligan’s Island, turn them into a bunch of a-holes then set them loose on an island infested with disgusting Mushroom People?! There’s only one way to find out! MATANGO!  5.17.2018
