I’m not even going to say anything about this. Mostly because I am hyperventilating too hard to speak. Or type.Just…just…Del Toro, Idris Elba and Jax from Sons of Anarchy? AND MECHA? AND KAIJU?This just might be the most perfect movie ever made. If the world ends on December 21st I’m going to be fucking pissed […]

Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my GOD. WATCH THIS NOW! This is amazing: a short proof-of-concept film about sushi chefs taking on marine-themed kaiju (and some that look an awful lot like the ohmu from Nausicaa of the Valley of Winds). A giant octopus, a giant anglerfish, and..THE BIG KNIFE. These guys are […]
Netflix added a handful of classic kaiju-eiga to it’s Instant Watch service, including Terror of Mechagodzilla, Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster, Rodan, and one of my all-time favorites – War of the Gargantuas! The latter is a peripheral part of the Godzilla canon, being a pseudo-sequel to Frankenstein Conquers the World (aka Frankenstein vs. Baragon) […]
Producer Brian Rogers has gone on-camera about the upcoming Godzilla film, due out in 2012 from Legendary Pictures. Fans all over the internet have been alternately praising and shitting on the new project, which hasn’t even left pre-production at this point. Listen to Mr. Rogers (Mr. Rogers! Doink!) speak about the new film and see […]
Well – based on this image of the newly-designed Big G, I’d say ‘swell’. It doesn’t look like they’re going to be using any pregnancy tests on this one. Legendary Pictures Godzilla won’t be out until 2012, but so far this looks pretty good – although I suspect this version of Godzilla will be CGI, […]
I’ve played a handful of Monsterpocalypse games at the last few Gen Con’s; it’s interesting, though I find the rules to be overly complex for it’s genre and the collectable nature of the game turns my stomach. I will say that Privateer Press’ kaiju minis game is fun in concept, and the thought of the […]
The original Japanese-language version of Godzilla, released a few years back on DVD, is now available on Netflix Instant Watch.
I’ve blogged about The Peanuts before, but here’s another gem – it’s the Mothra twins belting out the swing classic Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. Fantastic!
This is one of those posts that emerges from noodling around on YouTube when I should be working. I watched the awesome rock-doc ANVIL: THE STORY OF ANVIL at a friend’s house over Christmas (do check it it out if you get a chance – it’s amazing…) and have been adding Anvil videos to my […]
Pretty much everyone who has seen Michael Jackson’s Thriller video wants to learn the dance. I tried one time – a couple days later, after my spine had knitted itself back together, I decided the Thriller dance was beyond my skills. Now even kaihu are getting into it, in honor of the new Ultraman movie, […]
Thank God for Homeland Security. They protect us helpless Americans from foaming, raging, murderous terrorists. And also from giant monsters. Reason Article I’ve always wondered if the government actually has some sort of protocol for kaiju attacks. They should; I mean, you never know. Me and Shapiro Keats have a plan for monster attacks. Also […]
