Film Review No.332: The Monster Squad

Monster-Squad-3

Because I’m a terrible person, there are a number of films I missed in my youth that friends of mine like to remind me that I haven’t seen yet. Along with The Princess Bride and The Godfather, one such film was The Monster Squad. This has now been remedied. Below is my review. Now shut up. I’ll get to The Princess Bride eventually.

Bela Lugosi’s dead… is a great song by Bauhaus.

Film Review No.321: Doc Of The Dead

Doc-Of-The-Dead-2

So I have somehow come to review 3 zombie themed films in a row. Two of this are Paul’s fault, that’s fair enough, but Doc of the Dead is all me. Heard about this documentary being made with the involvement of the guys from Red Letter Media, providing some short Plinkett themed gags, a few months back. The film has just appeared on Netflix so I guess I had to review it. Click the link below for words about this.

Grrr, Arg!


GODZILLA SEASON: Film Review No.314: Godzilla (2014)

Godzilla-2014-5

Here it is. The final Godzilla film of The Film Dump’s Godzilla season. I may have had to miss 3 of the earlier films, due to nightmarish prices, but I’d say 27 Godzilla reviews in a row is just about enough. Looking forward to covering something a bit more arty next, whatever that ends up being. Will definitely have to be something a bit special methinks. Anywho, click the link below for my review of Gareth Edward’s 2014 take on Godzilla.

GO! GO! GODZILLA!


GODZILLA SEASON: Film Review No.313: Godzilla Final Wars

Godzilla-Final-Wars-2

Well, we’re at the end of the Toho side of this journey. After this there’s just Gareth Edwards new US produced take on Godzilla, which can’t possibly be as awful as the 1998 film. Toho decided that in 2004, on Godzilla’s 50th anniversary, they’d go out with a bang and leave Godzilla to rest for 10 years. The aim was to make a modern, action packed love letter to the monsters and history of Godzilla. That film is Final Wars and after the link I’ll tell you all about how awesome Don Frye is.

Finally…


GODZILLA SEASON: Film Review No.312: Godzilla – Tokyo SOS

Godzilla-Tokyo-SOS-1

Well look at this. It’s the only actual sequel of the Millennium Era. Godzilla: Tokyo SOS follows on a year after the events of Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla. Kiryu is damaged and undergoing repairs, but there’s a ticking clock running in the form of the threat of an eventual return of Godzilla. Exciting stuff. Click the link below and I’ll tell you words about this here film.

Sending out an SOS.


GODZILLA SEASON: Film Review No.311: Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla

Godzilla-Against-Mechagodzilla-1

Godzilla Against is, like the previous few films of the Millennium era, a film set within its own timeline. It takes the original film, with the change that the original Godzilla’s bones were left intact, picks a few points from Toho’s monster movie history such as Mothra and War of the Gargantuas, and returns Godzilla to modern Japan with the nation prepared to take him on. Only they’re not prepared enough and must do something a little crazy if they hope to defeat Godzilla again. Click the link below for my review.

GODZILLA SEASON: Film Review No.310: Godzilla, Mothra & King Ghidorah – Giant Monsters All-Out Attack

GMK-1

So I think I’m going to need to break my no acronym rule with this one. There’s no what I’m writing that title out each time. Let’s go with the, generally accepted by the fans, GMK as the replacement title. GMK is probably the best Godzilla film other than the original. That’s probably enough review for you, but, if you like, there’s more you can read after the link.

Pissed off Godzilla is the best Godzilla
