GMM:Frankenstein vs Baragon (1965)

GMM55 pic final.png

Of course we Ask a Scientist. We also talk a lot about the original Frankenstein book, you should read it. And of course, lots of comparing to Godzilla, the only kind of talk you could get from two people who have seen every giant monster film up until this film, The 1965 Frankenstein vs Baragon. Also, should we watch Matango?

There is a train, but you can’t hear it, in our episode for the 1964 film Mothra vs Godzilla.  We discuss human trafficking vs kidnapping and ask is this is the best monster reveal in a monster movie. We also wonder if God plays no favorites.

GMM: Atragon (1963)

GMM48 pic final.png

Taylor doesn’t know how to talk, Joshua answers our questions for a Theologian, and there is far too much History and Nationalism in our episode for the 1963 film Atragon.

Taylor continues to mispronounce things, we look into the real and imaginary symbolism, differences, and similarities in our discussion for the 1962 film King Kong vs Godzilla. Yes, this covers both versions.

GMM: Mothra (1961)

gmm42 pic final.png

Taylor has a horrible time with Japanese and we find out movie advertising was weird at the time of making this 1961 film Mothra. We ask if Nelson is an evil version of Carl Denham, and why does a god let good people get hurt? You know, easy questions.
