Godzilla: King of Monsters – TPToA Podcast 117

Godzilla: King of the Monsters Podcast Review

Godzilla… (or ゴジラ “Gojira” to his friends) is probably the most recognisable, and definitely the most loved of all Kaiju, or “Titans” as they’re known in this films continuity. Since 1954 his gigantic rubbery feet have stomped over numerous Japanese (and later, American) cities in an orgiastic cavalcade of radioactive destruction. After the slow burn of the 2014 Godzilla film and side-step of 2017’s world-building Kong: Skull Island, it’s now time for the big guy to return and battle some of his most famous rivals; Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidora, while somehow not treading on Millie Bobby Brown!

Join David ‘Quinny’ Quinn and Breathless_ness Jill to find out if Godzilla’s brand of nuclear medicine is the way of the future, or will this movie just give you cancer?

Also: as mentioned in the podcast here’s a clip for the 2004 Japanese movie Godzilla: Final Wars featuring Godzilla versus “Zilla” (which Quinny mistakenly calls “Monster X”.)

A whole lot of fun, giant monster punching action all the way through
Awesome visuals of epic kaiju battles and grand scale destruction
Ghidora makes for a great major villain!
There are lots of humans in the film and their plots make little sense
Ropey "science" makes suspension of disbelief difficult at times
Charles Dance is less-so...
