A few things:

"Gojira" is a classic anti-war movie disguised as a monster movie.

If you haven't seen footage of postwar Japan, it might seem over the top.

The original Japanese film is miles better than the Americanized mess.

Just saying.

This Sunday at 9pm eastern on #Monsterdon we'll be watching the original, the KING of rubber lizard cinema, GODZILLA (1954)

Usually for these things I link the dubs, they tend to be funnier, but I feel like we should pay respect to the big guy for this one. Besides, the dub is basically a completely different movie -- Raymond Burr takes over as the lead. Here's the subbed version: https://archive.org/details/original-godzilla-duology/Godzilla+(1954).mp4

Hope you join us, it's gonna be a blast :D

"Fucking off into the sea" is more formally known as Fifth Abandonment, i.e. the universal human right to forsake society, rejoin the ocean, and become a monster. This clause no longer appears in most published versions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights but was still in force last I checked.

Having dispatched Godzilla with Nuclear Silly String the New Mothrii eff off into the ocean.

We must thank them by building a better world based on mutual trust.

But we won't of course :blobcheeky:

Still a good thanks @Taweret for this evening's selection!

@msh I've not ever taken part in but saw the trailer for the Mothra/Godzilla film and found it... oddly compelling. 😄

incoming - feel free to mute the hashtag if you'd rather not have both Mothra and Godzilla rampaging over your timeline for the next hour or two...

(But where would the fun be in avoiding that???)

It's about an hour until , your weekly monster movie watch party. If you wanna filter the hashtag, now's the time to do it.

This week we're watching Mothra Vs. Godzilla, in which Mothra is ONCE AGAIN fully justified and Godzilla is just a big green lump. Get 'im Mothra!

If you'd like to join in, the film's available on a bunch of streaming services, but it's free over here on Archive.org: https://archive.org/details/godzilla-vs.-the-thing-4-k-remaster

We start at 9pm Eastern!
