Part 2 of my coverage of the best Godzilla movies leading up to the May release of the new film.
Archive for the SciFi Category
Check out the first part of my Godzilla Retrospective. This is the first Godzilla movie to come out in theaters while Radio of Horror is on the air so expect A LOT OF COVERAGE thru out the year. First up Destroy all Monsters (my son’s favorite Godzilla movie) and Godzilla Final War.
Cant wait till GODZILLA in May, how about a giant sea monster movie staring Brian Krause (Leo from Charmed) and the smoking hott Anne McDaniels. Five mins into the thing I was the worst CGI for a MOVIE ever , for a video game it was top notch. Not every film can be a winner. The poster looked cool. What I don’t understand tho is the Dinosaurs in Jurassic Park 21 years ago still hold up today. The performances were ok, the CGI was just bad bad bad. I like Brian tho and hope to have him on the show soon, I was a big fan of his character from Charmed. Cinematography was really good, and that’s where a lot of these sci fi monster movies shine. Just put more effort into the CGI. OR how about NO CGI your making a fucking MONSTER MOVIE go crazy cut a actor or two and spend the money on a rubber monster something real and silly, I would rather have that than BAD CGI.
Tonight on the show we have the Director Bert I Gordon aka Mr.Big we had some problems playing this a few weeks ago but got it fixed now. We will also have the record players working again so hopefully I can get the Tales from the Dark Side music to play correctly and Pam and I talk about The Machine and Bates Motel and From Dusk Till Dawn and other Horror/sci-fi shows.

Fox put out a press release about the 35 Anniversary of ALIEN, New toys video games books novels comics, They are GOING SUPER ALIEN CRAZY this year. Makes you wonder what will happen in 15 years during the 50th Anniversary.

The officially licensed Ripley action figures from NECA will span multiple movies within the ALIEN saga: Initial plans include a figure of Ripley in her Nostromo jumpsuit from the original 1979 film, to be followed later by a Ripley figure based on the 1986 movie ALIENS, directed by James Cameron.

Finally here! Just in time for Toy Fair 2014, we have your first look at the official LEGO Ghostbusters set, and it is pretty amazing. This is fantastic if you bought the Lego Monster set and now you can have the two interact. Lego are very expensive but this is one set I am definitely picking up. They have Lord of the Rings and Marvel and DC and TMNT and a MONSTER sets what not Freddy and Jason and Michael. They have the some bloody body count as the monsters do and they made Lego’s out of the villains from Marvel and DC comics, are you really going to tell me Carnage, Dr.Doom, The Green Goblin, Dark Side and even The Shredder don’t have a huge body count??
The line was original conceived by fan Brent Waller.
“We’re thrilled to take the ECTO-1 and minifigure characters from Brent Waller’s Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary project…” said the company in a prior press release. “This is an amazing model, and the set will be a fantastic representation of the cult classic film.“
The LEGO Ghostbusters will make their debut in early June. Fans will have the chance to build brick versions of Ecto-1, the ghost-fighting team’s classic vehicle, and play with minifigure versions of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore.
