Bryan, Cindy & Rachel join Kyle to chat about Godzilla X Megaguirus (2000).

Hey, we still have a few minutes or so left in September; I can do this before October hits (…in Hawaii)!

This month, we dive into the second movie of Toho’s “Millennium” series, Godzilla X Megaguirus (2000). As I mention in the discussion, this is the directorial debut of Masaaki Tezuka – a director who I think was honing his craft and improving his filmmaking throughout this series. That being said, the film is not without its flaws – which are sometimes as obvious as visible wires (cue the facepalm).

If you’re looking for news, make sure to check out our previous episode – this one’s a bit short on scoops since we just recorded last week. But we did manage to squeeze in a couple of mentions – specifically, go check out the Kaiju Gaiden kickstarter campaign. I can’t wait to talk to those guys (ahem – that should be our next episode) about their upcoming documentary. In addition to the teensy tiny news, we also had a few songs to play, so hopefully you enjoy those as well…

1. Godzilla vs. Biollante by Koichi Sugiyama Arranged by Randy Miller from Monster Mania: Music From The Classic Godzilla Films (1998)
2. Monsterman by DEVO (2012)
3. Godzilla vs. Megaguirus English Tailer Audio (2000)
4. Godzilla x Megaguirus by Michiru Oshima from Godzilla x Megaguirus (2000)
5. Snowflakes on the Southern Sea by Masaru Satoh from Son of Godzilla (1967)

Congratulations to Keith Foster for successfully funding his kickstarter campaign!
Please go support Kaiju Gaiden – a new independent documentary about independent kaiju films!

10/24 – Chiller Theatre in Parsipanny, NJ

It’s time for the Kaijucast to cover Dogora (1964)! We’ll be watching the Media Blasters DVD of this and apparently, it’s just not available anymore… certainly not legitimately*. So if you are fortunate enough to own this DVD or another version, you’ll need to get your homework turned in before October 22nd to be included in the next discussion episode. Please use the handy contact form to submit your thoughts, questions and reviews – thanks!
