SH MonsterArts Battra

January 20, 2016

SH Monster Arts Battra is beautiful. The wings are striking and the patterning on the body is true to the movie in which Battra appears, as one would expect from SHMA. Finely crafted, to scale with all the other SHMA pieces, Battra comes with its own stand and makes a wonderful counterpoint to Mothra. I really like the red accents on the black body and the design that makes Battra…

The Criterion Collection Presents Godzilla

January 18, 2016

The Criterion Collection Blu-Ray release of Godizlla is the original Gojira uncut and un-Americanized. It comes with an informative booklet that is very well done as well as commentary. There is no English version, (unless you watch the included Americanized King of the Monsters version) you get the options of subtitles or no. I like it better with subtitles anyway. The original actors get really into their roles while the…

10 Cloverfield Lane — Cloverfield Sequel?

January 16, 2016

10 Cloverfield Lane just burst upon the fandom world (well casual fandom anyway, I’m sure there were people who have been following it for quite a bit longer). There are a number of rumors swirling around the movie, the first I saw being that it might be a sequel to Cloverfield. There is some correlation that supports this. 10 Cloverfield Lane is a very secretive project, just like Cloverfield was….

Pacific Rim: Malestrom Off The Table

January 14, 2016

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Pacific Rim 2 is now off the table indefinitely at Universal Studios. This is sad, sad news. However there is a ray of hope. There is a rumor that Wanda, a Chinese conglomerate is looking to purchase Legendary Studios. As it turns out Pacific Rim did very well in China and if Wanda acquires Legendary Studios that may put a sequel back on the table….

Godzilla 1998 Coin Bank

January 11, 2016

Much to my surprise, I apparently collect Godzilla themed coin banks. This is actually kind of cool. Also, Godzilla accepts all donations so those pennies found in parking lots go right into Godzilla. Now there are a lot of cool Godzilla coin banks but this Christmas I got one that actually surprised me. First of all I didn’t even know it existed. Second of all–it’s one of the coolest coin…

Otachi Joins The Party

January 8, 2016

Otachi came to play with my other toys this holiday season but what with all the visiting friends and family, entertaining too, there wasn’t time to get her out of her box and put her on the shelf with the other toys. This, as we all know from Pixar’s Toy Story, makes toys sad. So this weekend I took the time to liberate Otachi from her box. Then came the…

Enter Mothra

January 4, 2016

Mothra is perhaps tied with Godzilla and Biollante for my favorite Kaiju. This is heresy I know and yet there it is. I even confess to liking the Mothra trilogy. Yes, I like it. I like DesGhidorah (Death Ghidorah) and the concept of a monster that feeds off of the life energy of plants and the natural world plays right into the strong ecological messages of Godzilla, Mothra, and even…

Godzilla Resurgence Pics Leaked

January 4, 2016

Apparently earlier today some low-res photos of the latest Godzilla suit from Toho’s upcoming Godzilla Resurgence were leaked. They are all over the interwebz as we speak. I’m kind of sorry they were leaked because I would like to have official promo shots to share. I would like to say that what I can see supports the idea of Godzilla being a mutation I just can’t imagine the happy, dancing…

GodzillaMomma Reviews Gatchaman Live Action

January 2, 2016

Ok, technically not Kaiju related but it’s awesome anyway. If there is a sequel there could be Kaiju–and Jaegers or Mechas. In 2013 the Gatchaman Live Action movie was released. I was unaware of a region 1 DVD release until just yesterday (Christmas Day). To my surprise and delight I received the Gatchaman Live Action movie for Christmas. There was a moment of concern as we loaded up the DVD…
