This is probably my all time favorite Godzilla Movie. Not the best, mind you, but the most insane and totally whacked out Godzilla movie ever made. First of all, it has everything. And I do mean “everything:” flying saucers, cute pets, time travel, the secret origins of both monsters, a terminator robot, a super submarine […]Read more "Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah [Gojira vs. Kingu Gidorâ] (1991)"
There’s a hall in the Headquarters of Industrial Lights and Magic where, back in the Eighties (I do not know whether it is still there), they had a long row of posters for the movies they’d worked on. When Honey, I Shrunk the Kids came out they added it to the wall, even though they […]Read more "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)"
(aka, Gezora, Ganimes, and Kamoebas: Decisive Battle! Giant Monsters of the South Seas; Yog: Monster from Space) This is one of the stranger Kaiju Eiga films Toho made. One might almost be tempted to say the strangest if it weren’t for Godzilla’s Revenge and Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster. Although, as you’d expect, many of the […]Read more "Space Amoeba [Gezora, Ganime, Kameba: Kessen! Nankai no daikaijû] (1970)"
This is one of those films that are hard to believe. Hard to believe, that is, that anyone would ever make such a film. Seriously. I mean, a giant monster from outer space shows up, a bird the size of a battleship, and starts causing all sorts of chaos, and what does it look like? […]Read more "The Giant Claw (1957)"
The Critters remain one of my favorite Alien ripoffs. While I no longer think that they are one of the best ripoffs, like John Carpenter’s The Thing or Predator, there is no question that the first film was quite amiable, and far, far more enjoyable than most bargain basement killer alien films of the […]Read more "Critters 3 (1991)"
This one was better than I remembered. Mind you, like a lot of genre films, you still have to accept it for what it is, which in this case is a somewhat absurd Nineties buddy-cop revenge drug war science fiction action film with horror elements. Yep. One of those. Actually, there’s a fairly clever idea […]Read more "I Come In Peace [Dark Angel] (1990)"
(aka, Project Shadowchaser) This is what you get when you combine Die Hard with your typical android-on-the-loose direct to video movie of the Nineties. We’ve got a high-rise hospital in a big, unspecified city of the future: a team of mercenaries seize control of the place and take everyone hostage. The FBI need help, so they […]Read more "Shadowchaser (1992)"
