Monster Monday

The oceans should be controlled by beautiful life-forms such as myself.

Dig that crazy theme song!

SO much to say, so much to say...

We need more monsters of justice.

Didn't Lady X date Captain Kirk?

Children really are terrorist weapons.

Oh and the smart money's on the Spinning Jets. The kicked the Bay City Rollers' butts last game.

Ok. Off to look at skin and bones.

Lady X. What a gal, and what a snappy dresser! Oh, and was it just me or was Gamera traveling across the sky by a sort of rectal rocket thing? I swear I saw flames shooting out the south end of his plastron...

Maggie said...

I swear the realism in that was scary. I was looking for my nearest gama ray shelter!

Gamera! We need you Gamera!

Kenichi and Helen. And Margie. And Tom.

When American movies go to Japan, are the characters renamed Takeshi and Hanako?

Clowncar said...

Yes, Nance, the sheer amount of possible reactions is a little overwhelming. I lie awake for hours silently pondering which really is the better strategy: orange ray or spinning jets?

Irr, it does appear as if Gamera is lighting his own farts, but, sadly, that's not a "rectal rocket." He shoots fire out of his leg holes. Didn't you learn that in college? I learned about all things Gamera in my dorm room, betwixt bong hits, every Saturday morning.

Mag, you're right, it is very realistic. Sort of like "Saving Private Ryan," except with flying turtles.

Hey Eric, didja notice that the acresses playing Margie and Helen have the same last name? I think they probably paid some vacationing American family $10 to be in the American release.

GAMERA!!! Oh, a creature from my childhood! Every Saturday afternoon it was a monster movie like this, and on lucky days, dad would make popcorn with lots of butter. I could watch this all day!

Thank you! Now I have the Gamera March in my head!
