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! Oh, also we go down a rabbit hole with Godzilla Island! 5.15.2019

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

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
