Giant Monster Messages: 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957)

Taylor ruins segues and Joshua keeps asking him questions in this episode of the 1957 film, 20 Million Miles to Earth. Why is the ocean always involved? Are any of the Major Generals good models? Those questions and many more are brought up and possibly answered in this episode where we also discuss the sin of existing. Enjoy!

How fun is DDT? What are we worth? Should we believe in something bigger than ourselves? We are forced to see the world from a new perspective in this episode for the 1957 film The Incredible Shrinking Man.

GMM: KRONOS (1957)

Kronos title

Giant Monster Messages: KRONOS (1957)

We discuss how normal sized dinosaurs don’t count, Greek Mythology is weird, and Joshua makes jokes that Taylor doesn’t get in our episode for the 1957 film KRONOS. We question humanities consumption while also throwing in some Calvin in Hobbes, Star Trek, and have another round of “Ask a scientist”.

COM: Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957)

Crab Monsters 2.png

Commentary: Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957)

We do something a little different in this episode for the 1957 film, Attack of the Crab Monsters. It’s our first commentary! We learn that we should always be afraid and to never assume someone, or something, is pregnant. We also ask if a crab can communicate through metal under water and are giant crabs the Martian Manhunter in disguise?
