Monster of the Day #947 Updated on July 11, 2014 By Ken Begg 12 Comments Huh, I don’t think I’ve posted this guy yet. Still holes in MotD, even after all this time.

I’ll be your MoD. Now let me introduce out guest Gajin, Robert Dunham.” Gamera977 Diamonds are a Dogora’s best friend. Cullen Waters Here’s a rather neat idea for a monster movie. Too bad it falls to pieces at the end. bgbear_rnh I think I want to make “DOGORA” my new euphemism. Eric Hinkle How so? I’ve never seen the movie — the last time it was out on DVD it was gone before I could get a copy. But I understand it’s considered both a very original kaiju movie and in some ways a rather flawed one. The Rev. I’m not sure if he’s serious or making a pun based on the climax. I’m a bit ashamed to say that I’ve had this DVD for years and have yet to watch it. This may be the impetus I need to finally get to it. Ericb Too much diamond heist antics and too little giant space jellyfish. bgbear_rnh sadly, just like real life :( Cullen Waters A little bit of both, actually. As I recall, the subplot (which amusingly enough is about jewel thieves) sort of goes to pot at one point, though the specifics now escape me. It’ worth a watch. I’m rather sorry I never picked it up. Flangepart Yeah. After seeing the ‘pick up a bride and drop it’ scene, along with the ‘levitating coal’ sequence, I really wish the monster was the star. Like Joe Bob Briggs says about Kaiju Eiga: “The monsters are the stars, the human actors are furniture.” Flangepart Okay…I meant to write BRIDGE…but ‘bride’ woulda made a good scene too. bgbear_rnh Hah, I thought it was a homage to the scene in King Kong when he dropped the not-faywray lady.
