Pacific Rim (Showa version)
Went to my local comic shop today on a whim…ended up leaving with this glorious haul
Hoobajeebawhu???????? Is this a thing? Can I actually buy it? Because I want a christmas tree filled with just these friggin things.
The new Godzilla looks pretty happy.
Ahhhh Spacegodzilla. What a delightful romp. It has everything you could want, psychic army projects, giant flying robots, and mass amounts of destruction.
Also, Spacegodzilla is a DICK!
Seriously, the first thing he does when he gets to earth is start wailing on Baby Godzilla. And not in any kind of light way. No, he seriously gives Baby Godzilla a thrashing before Big G shows up. And even then, he keeps on wailing on the kid, before eventually kidnapping him and putting him in crystal jail.
What a dick!
Spacegodzilla is also the least story driven. Sure there’s story stuff going on, but for the most part it’s just “oh SHIT! Now we have a SPACEGodzilla to worry about too??? Dammit!!! Get Mogera…I don’t care if he sucks, he’s all we got!”
Actually…Mogera is quite badass in this film. He is one of the better redesigns made over the course of the Godzilla series. He’s a combiner now that turns into a flying jet and a drill tank. AWESOME!
But, like I said…there’s not much here for story, or reason for that matter. We don’t know exactly why Spacegodzilla is here, besides to kill Godzilla. But really…that’s fine, because the action is great and the special effects are some of the best in the Heisei era.
God I love this movie. It’s one of those “so bad it’s good” films that make up much of the Godzilla filmography.
It’s just too bad I only have the US version, I’m curious to see the original. But at the same time, so much of the US version makes up the cheese factor that makes this movie so enjoyable.
The acting in the United Nations sections are so wooden its amazing to watch. It’s almost like watching a poorly made infomercial.
Then there’s the fact that they clearly recycled music from “Revenge of the Creature.”
But the best part is the suit acting. When King Kong first meets Godzilla, the body language between them says it all.
KK: Wait…you can breath FIRE???
G: Yeah, that’s right!!
KK: …well, fuck this. *walks away*
It’s not my go-to Godzilla movie by any means, but it’s certainly in my top five.
Today’s Godzilla-thon lineup
I made a comic about Godzilla.
Seriously internet…why do you demand my money this week so fervently???? How am I supposed to say no to this??
