When Netflix released the Godzilla anime trilogy, the response was horrendous. But has time been kind to these unusual entries in G-history? Well... no. But that one scene where Ghidorah cuts somebody's head off is pretty cool! Ryan, Sam, and Joanna roll up their sleeves and finish off the Godzilla anime trilogy. Greg Jones is also there to clean up our mess. But you know, not in a gross way. Next episode's content should be Godzilla (1998)! Argh! Slight chance that Godzilla (2014) comes...

4/6/2018

Film history is full of lost versions of famous movies, often discarded in their time but reinstated later to restore the director's intent. Blade Runner, Spartacus, Little Shop of Horrors... and of course, King Kong vs. Godzilla. Joanna, Sam, and Ryan chew through the little-seen Japanese version of the movie, finding it delectably clever but with hints of making no damn sense.
