Mystery Men 20th Anniversary Review

20 years ago, 1999 brought us some classic cinema like The Matrix, Fight Club, American Beauty, and The Sixth Sense. It brought the resurgence of long dead franchises like Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. We saw some truly bad movies like Wild Wild West and were treated with true gems like Iron Giant and Galaxy Quest. But we also received one of the weirdest superhero films to date, Mystery Men. Let’s celebrate 20 years of the satirical superhero flick in the wake of Amazon’s The Boys.

Plus, we talk the latest news in entertainment including Disney’s slashing of 20th Century Fox films, CBS & Viacom reuniting Star Trek, Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, and more!

The One With The Yokai Guy

Episode 12

Hi there UK Kaiju fans, episode 12 is ready for your ears, “The One With The Yokai Guy” is now available for you to download and/or stream.

This (dare I say) is our most interesting episode yet. Matthew Meyer aka The Yokai Guy, who has published 3 books and runs a successful patreon (https://www.patreon.com/osarusan) comes on the show to talk about his passion, Yokai, which are strange and supernatural creatures from Japanese folklore. Some of these share similarities with certain kaiju you might know.

You can see some of the wonderful art work and find out more information about Matthews work over at http://www.yokai.com/

Now sadly Joe and I both had things going on, so we were unable to join in on this episode. However Alex does a stella job of holding the fort and it works well for a tight interview that stays on topic. It also made a nice change for me to listen to an episode with not knowing what to expect. Highlights for myself include spider babies the size of people, and Mario Bros…I won’t say any more!

I hope you enjoy the episode as much as I did!

Further info

As you (may or may not) know we have created this podcast not only because it’s fun for us to talk kaiju, but also because we want to engage with like minded people. So don’t be shy and feel free to get in touch!

If you’re just discovering us, Kaiju Curry House is a new podcast series under the Heroes Podcast Network umbrella.

The One That Nobody Can Agree On

Episode 11

Hello kaiju fans, episode 11, “The One That Nobody Can Agree On” is now available for you to download and/or stream.

In this episode we take a deep dive in to the anime phenomenon that is Neon Genesis Evangelion. Now I say we, but I haven’t seen the show since around 2002, so I bring very little to the table. However Alex and Joe love this series and talk at length about the true meaning behind this beloved franchise.

If you aren’t a massive fan then perhaps they guys will persuade you to give it another shot, and at the very least there are still the sections “what have kaij-you?” been up to and “If nothing else”.

Spoiler warning, this episode will discuss the full series and both feature films, so if you haven’t watch it, but are planning to you might want to binge it on Netflix first to avoid any spoilers.

If you want to chat with us about the show, or have another anime with kaiju to suggest as a topic drop us a tweet or message in the Facebook group.

Hope you enjoy!

Padme’s Closet: Tatooine Disguise

Welcome back to an all new Padme’s Closet! Kris and Ian got lost in all of Padme’s massive wardrobe so we are very sorry we haven’t gotten a new episode out in a while, but never fear they are back and traveling to Tatooine! Today we discuss an outfit that Kris has cosplayed in the past, and the one Ian has teased about being his least favorite of them all…the Tatooine Disguise outfit. (Why would they put her in wool on a desert planet?!) So come dust off those sewing machines and lets talk some Star Wars fashion!
