I now want to get this movie and watch it!
and I was laughing so hard at the comment that in that universe it seems that Japan gets attacked by giant monsters like every week.

You call it 'bad monster movies get their due'. I call it 'Movie Bob writes a Christmas list for my brother'. Thanks for the help!

I'm almost certain anyone who sees this video has already seen the Cinemassacre's Monster Madness review of the movie already:

"The WOOOOOOOOOOOOORDS get stuck in my throat!" I WISH they got stuck in your throat, since your singing is so horrible!

I think, 'Holy Sh*it! Did he just hit him with a boat?!' is now my favorite saying of all time.

Interesting episode (so this is where Scooby-Doo!Mystery Incorporated episode "Battle of the Humungonauts" paid homage to).
I wonder what next week episode is referring to?

Can't tell if you're complaining about that they're covering the same movie or not, but I kind of like it.

James gives his personal opinions in a hilarious way, while Bob gives a history lesson in an equally hilarious way.

Beatrix Potter and Roland Em...whatever.

Is it Watership Down? That's the only post-apocalyptic bunny movie I know.

So, the woman who wrote cute stories about bunnies and squirrels and the man who blows shit up for no good god damn reason. Bunnies and squirrels exploding at random then?
Whatever the case, you've got my attention.

I imagine that in the Toho monster universe, Tokyo is designed a bit like the SDF-1: Modular, pre-fabricated buildings that are designed to be reconfigured quickly and efficiently after a giant monster/robot/demon battle levels large portions of the metropolis.

I also imagine that several fortunes have been made in the industry of Giant Monster Insurance.

EDIT: Heh. Actually, he did this one day ago last year. Don't feel bad, I saw it yesterday as well and had kind of a "wait, WHAT?" myself ;)

Ta heck with Japanese monsters!
If you're into REAL monsters checkout Glovers Harbour, Newfoundland.



They've been finding Giant Squids there for years.

Correction: they've been finding bits and pieces of Giant Squid for centuries (which is why we know they exist at all), but they've only had one or two intact specimens and never seen one alive.

Back on topic: Toho: the sole company holding up the miniature building industry in Japan.
