As will I. I even sang happy birthday to the king when he first appears over the hill.

I've been watching some of Toho's solo monster films, and I saw Mothra last night. It's a great film, has a talented cast, and a fine music score.

I watched the 'MST3K' version of Gamera's first movie last night seeing as how it was his 55th birthday. Weird that my G-Fan calendar doesn't mention the 27th as such.

Got into my own brand of christmas spirit earlier this week with 'The Thing' and 'Gremlins'. The former is more appropriate for christmas time than most would care to admit seeing as how it's not only set in one of the snowiest places on earth, but also takes place during the "first goddamn week of winter" or the week of December 21st. And one thing that makes the latter unique among christmas films is how it has a christmas hating character who's not a Scroogesque antagonist that explicitly changes her mind by the film's end.

My family and I sat down to watch Godzilla (1998) the other day. Susan enjoys the action and humor. My wife thinks the Japanese movies are better and feels that those dastardly Americans should stay away from cinematic properties that aren't theirs. She also called BS on the fact that Godzilla is a metaphor for the A-Bomb, but the Americans for their incarnation turn around and blame the French. This coming from a person who has only seen a handful of Godzilla movies.

I watched Night of the Living Dead 1968. The ghouls, or zombies, depending on what you call them, are creepy, but the human drama is what really drives this movie. The conflict between the two men does a good job of creating interest when the living dead aren't seen. That little girl, however, wins for the creep factor.

Saw the tail end of Son of Godzilla, saw Destroy All Monsters, and Godzilla vs Megalon is starting.

My first movie of the year was Universal's Dracula. Bela Lugosi's voice and eyes really sell the menace of the vampire count. All that I wonder about is why there are armadillos in central Europe?

Cemetery Gates. It’s a b-movie about a mutant Tasmanian devil. It’s not good per se, but it’s entertaining.

Because regular rats aren't creepy enough, apparently. Also, there is a Spanish version which uses rats, likely because if you spoke spanish in the US at the time, you'd be very familiar with armadillos and would not find them so, just nuisances.

Last night I saw From Hell it Came. Is it a bad movie? Yes. Is it entertaining? Also yes. The acting and dialogue could be better, but it's a nice little film with a memorable tree monster.

I had a paperback book once called Horrors from Screen to Scream (or maybe it was the other way around; I don't know which) and the review for From Hell It Came started like this: "And to Hell it can go." Pretty funny, huh?

Btw, have you seen the other bad tree monster film, The Navy vs. the Night Monsters?

Isn't there like a third bad tree monster film in the form of Maneater at Hydra?

I stand corrected. I must now watch The Revenge of Doctor X (aka Venus Flytrap aka Body of the Prey)) thrice for erroneously switching the preposition!
