The One With CATTLE

Episode 14

Hi there Kaiju Curry House fans. Episode 14 is now available for you to listen to, “The One With CATTLE” can be downloaded and/or stream through your service provider of choice. This marks the first episode recorded in the same room, rather than over Skype!

You might have seen the poll on the UK Kaiju Fans Facebook page where a poll was created for our listeners to vote on what film we should watch and discuss in our next episode, the winner was Godzilla: Final Wars. A film which I was extremely hyped for back in 2004 and will defend to this day as good fun, though it seems not everyone shares my optimistic view. Have a listen to see what the other hosts thought.

Why is this called The One With CATTLE I hear you ask? Well, it turns out that aliens have invaded Earth and want to use us as cattle, and this is pointed out more than once. You could make a drinking game out of it (drinking lemonade of course).

Did Final Wars deliver? Let us know your thoughts!

The One Where We Almost Follow a Plan

Episode 10

Hey there all, episode 10, “The One where we almost followed a plan” is now available for you to download and/or stream.

In this episode we focus on kaiju video games! The plan (the actual agenda I typed up and sent to the hosts) is thrown out the window at the beginning, but we do manage to reel back in to the theme of kaiju games in the period 2000 to 2009, a 10 year period which included that awesome series of Godzilla Melee/Saves the Earth/Unleashed.

I’m sure we’ll have (or at least I hope) another episode to follow up and discuss the older games (King of the Monsters on Neo Geo springs to mind!) and of course the more recent games in detail (Godzilla PS4).

Enjoy!

The One with the Right Head of Ghidorah

Episode 8

The One with Ghidorah’s Right Head is now available to stream and download on your favourite podcast stores. I’m so excited that not only do we have a guest, but a celebrity guest. The motion capture actor Alan Maxson that played King Ghidorah aka Monster Zero’s right head in the 2019 Godzilla King of the Monsters!

I must warn you that this is the first episode we recorded on Skype, so there might be a few little audio hiccups. I don’t think there is anything to distract from what I think is a fantastic episode (if I do say so myself!)

What have Kaij-You been up to doesn’t really get much of a look in here because we got distracted so early on, but we do find out abut how Godzilla KOTM was made, that Graboids are awesome (as if there was any doubt) and the best way for you to enjoy Christmas with Cookie a film written, directed and starring Alan which is available on Amazon Prime now!

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! Also, if you get chance send a big thank you to @Monster_Maxson for taking time out to chat with us all, and because he was so much fun, let him know that you want him to make another appearance.

Kong: Skull Island – Quick Movie Take

Ryan of the Screen Heroes podcast and Buster Props bring us an early take on the monster movie reboot Kong: Skull Island. The new incarnation of the giant gorilla takes place at the tail end of the Vietnam war and stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, and John Goodman.

Have you seen Kong: Skull Island yet? What did you think? Let us know in the comments and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel for even more fun videos.

A diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers unite to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong. source

Kong: Skull Island is rated PG-13 and has a running time of 118 minutes.

Kong: Skull Island – Quick Movie Take

Shin Godzilla – Kaiju done right

It seems that 2016 has been a year of huge potential with mixed results, many tent pole films and many more reactions to them. This could simply all be down to the source material: characters with per-existing histories and fan bases that make it difficult for studios, directors, and actors to please. All this aside, it has been an emotional roller coaster of a year for fandom film goes.

Earlier this year when I posted an article about this summer’s Godzilla movie and how it was going to be done by the original studio that created the character, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t extremely excited. What has also had many  of us fans very excited, and also a little concerned, was that this newest film was going to be a complete reboot – and it wasn’t going going down the retelling route.

For those of you who may not be Godzilla fans, there are some things that have always been canon in the Godzilla mythos: his origin, what he is, when he appeared. Like Superman or Captain America’s origins, there are some things about the big G that have been sacred to fans all around the world. But when the original studio decides to reboot the franchise itself and it acknowledges it is going to be a modern and very different retelling of the origin story…you need to have faith, but you can’t help but feel a little concerned too.

Our faith was rewarded, because they delivered.

Purple may be a new look, but it looks good

Purple may be a new look, but it looks good. The violet color is actually symbolic of death in Japanese culture.

The overwhelming consensus from from western fans who were lucky enough to see the film in Japan and those from the home nation of Japan, is that the film, while different, was masterfully done.  It has also been highlighted on many sites posting reviews of the film. The Japanese members of the fandom are usually the harshest critics out there – and yet so far they are the biggest supporters.

But it gets better…..this Godzilla is coming to the USA. Funimation, the company that distributes other Japanese media in the United States (the Dragonball franchise for example), has announced that Shin Godzilla will be coming to the USA for a theatrical release in late 2016. No date yet on that release, but with roughly four months left in 2016, you will not have long to wait.

Look away if you want to be spoiler free as I will be giving a rough synopsis of the plot. There is also one spoiler image as well, so if you want to save yourself a legitimately fun surprise, best to wait it out.

The film opens with some mysterious problems occurring in Tokyo Bay. Before you can say “I think it’s a monster” an enormous tail appears in the bay. This is right off the bat in the film and it takes no time to build up a threat. Godzilla is here and it really starts to hit the fan quickly. This is quite the refreshing change from other Godzilla films and it addresses one of the key fan complaints against the 2014 Hollywood outing.

The other thing that I should mention is that Godzilla doesn’t seem quite himself….spoiler image coming up folks…..

He evolves during the course of the film…

dramatically…

…more than once….

 

The first two forms of Shin Godzilla

The first two forms of Shin Godzilla – these are Bandai figures. As of yet no official pictures have surfaced online with as much detail.

The Proto-Godzilla does what Godzillas do best and starts running riot. It is here where the film starts to show some of its true colors. We go to rooms full of Japan’s government representatives as they stare in disbelief at what they are seeing and try to manage some kind of response.

I should mention that Godzilla originally served as a commentary for the current state of affairs in Japan and in this first reboot since the original film, the studio stayed true to that idea. The theme of politicians talking and debating until they are forced to act is a reoccurring plot point in the film and while a few fans have complained that the amount of time spent on this element could have been shortened, I think that this issue the film highlights couldn’t be any more current. The Japanese representatives spend a lot of time arguing about what should and can be done, but by the time they are able to come up with a plan…the problem has shifted sideways on them. Godzilla changes for his second time (the second form is pretty unnerving to look at by the way).

So at about this time, the USA comes into the movie. The US military helps the Japanese have a go at the walking disaster that seems to love populated areas, but nobody seems to be getting anywhere against the monster using conventional weapons, much to the concern of the US.

Then, Godzilla evolves into his third and final appearance of the film, the one we have been seeing in all of the trailers and lets just say he packs a mean punch.

Tension starts to reach a critical point when the US representative tells the Japanese that they have a deadline to sort this monster business out or it’s nukes away. Say what you will about the political undertones, it definitely ratchets up the tension.

I will not give away more after that because what comes next is crucial to the climax of the film. However, lets just say that the film ends with something of a cliff hanger and what I think is a pretty interesting way to finish the movie which will no doubt be the first installment in a series of new Godzilla films.

And a new series there will certainly be, with this movie already being almost twice as successful as the 2014 Hollywood Godzilla during its opening weekend in Japan. It would seem unlikely in this day and age that a sequel not be made.

So for those of you who would be considered “Western Audiences”, you may have to wait a little while for him to get to you, but this Godzilla is coming your way and if it’s one thing we all know – good things are worth waiting for.

p12-schilling-godzilla-a-20160729

So how about it folks? Are you excited to see this new Godzilla? Will you see it in the US theaters?

Are you more excited to see where this version of the Godzilla franchise is going or the US one?

Shin Godzilla – Kaiju done right

Japan’s Newest Godzilla Movie Now has a Trailer

And it’s EPIC.

The trailer itself may not fit the normal format that most Western audiences are used to, but most Godzilla trailers follow a format of sorts and this one fits nicely in with the others. Usually, in these trailers it is announced rather unceremoniously by Godzilla’s trademark roar what you are about to watch, or by his theme music. In this case, we got the roar.

The trailer opens with a few scenes of the monster and what I think we are really being given here is the scale and the mood that the film is trying to set. The music that is paired with the trailer is haunting, and reminiscent of a chorus that was sung in the original Godzilla movie when the damage he caused is revealed the day following his landfall.

The trailer only has one speaking line, and that belongs to the star of the show. It is likely that Toho is keeping a tight lid on the plot of this film as to date only two of the 31 Godzilla films have had only one kaiju appear in them.  From what can be gathered though, Godzilla is the only kaiju in the film and it will be centered around the reaction of his existence.

The trailer also does a good job of showing off the new design which is very reminiscent of the original. I have stated before that this design is meant to reflect what the original creators were going for when the first film went out: a mutated creature, that has, and is likely still suffering the effects of radiation.

The other great thing here that I am seeing is a reasonable amount of practical effects. Godzilla and other kaiju movies can catch a little flack from time to time regarding the use of practical effects (namely miniatures and a man in a suit) but this trailer shows that Toho has gone through great lengths to marry the effects being used in the movie as CGI is present as well. This is probably best demonstrated in the opening scene which shows Godzilla’s tail passing over homes. This is refreshing in an age where CGI is used for most creature effects and brings a sense of “realness” to a film with an otherwise fantastic premise.

Big, bad, and back.

Big, bad, and back.

It has been 12 years since Toho made a film with arguably their biggest star (pun intended there), but if anything, this trailer shows that they still know how to get people buzzing about Godzilla, a character more than 60 years old. It has been 32 years since he last had a solo film. I for one am excited to see the original studio behind the helm again.

Shin Godzilla opens in Japanese theaters July 29th.

So what did you think of the trailer? What do you think of Godzilla’s new look? Sound off in the comments below!
