Monster of the Day #1528

I don’t French, so I don’t know from the title if Godzilla is fighting a robot, or if the two are fighting by doing the Robot. If so, MechaGodzilla is, unsurprisingly, obviously off to an early lead.

Perhaps it’s just a general dance-off, although Godzilla’s busting out the Twist surely seemed woefully out of date at that time.

    Godzilla seems to be donning his winter coat.

  • bgbear_rnh

    BTW, Ken your French is so bad it looks like Italian ;-)

    I agree Godzilla balla con il Robot would be a must see.

  • Gamera977

    Maybe while he’s there Big-G can take on the Ymir too.

  • Gamera977

    BTW Off subject but anyone seen the new Kong movie yet?

  • sandra

    Ken, the title is in Italian, not french. I think it translates as GODZILLA VERSUS THE ROBOT. I wonder why Big G is wearing a gorilla suit ?

  • bgbear_rnh

    It’s a fancy dress dance party.

  • Flangepart

    Looks like Air Traffic Control is on a break.
    Heh…wonder what the films sound like in other languages…they say the dubbing is weird Japanese to English…

  • Yep. Might be the best Kong Movie since the original. My brother and I really enjoyed it.

  • bgbear_rnh

    Glad to here that. They really needed to get away from the “cry for the big monkey” thing. Kong is a dangerous animal even if it is not his fault someone drug him out of his jungle.

  • The Rev.

    Glad to hear it. I’m planning to catch it in a couple of weeks.

    Of course, being the best Kong movie since the original is not exactly difficult…

  • The Rev.

    That’s a rather unexciting poster, especially for one of the better entries in the series.

    Although I like it much better with Ken’s interpretation.

  • bgbear_rnh

    Oh, c’mon, give the Jeff Bridges entry a little respect ;-)

    That wall to wall gorilla rug really ties the room together

  • Eric Hinkle

    Does it look to anyone else like MechaGodzilla is shooting a ray out of his nostrils in that poster?

  • Yeah, but King Kong Escapes comes real close.

    I am, of course, joking.

    I think.

  • sandra

    Yeah, it does. Not to mention that rocket is in a very phallic position.

  • Gamera977

    Thanks guys, I’ll give it a shot when I get a chance.

  • Marsden

    Snot Missiles!

  • Ken_Begg

    I don’t know, there’s nothing not to like about KKE.

  • I think KKE is great fun, but it’s not one of the better Kongs. Out of the eight Kong movies (not counting the animated one, which I’ve yet to see), I’d say it was about fourth in line, with Kong v. Godzilla just edging it out of third by a hair or two.

  • The Rev.

    Oh, believe me, I love Gorosaurus and Mecha-Kong and Dr. Who and all, but I don’t think being better than that movie is the hardest thing to pull off. It’s pretty good, but I recall it drags in places. (Admittedly it’s been a while since I’ve seen it…which I think was at one of the T-Fests, as our T-rex movie?)

    Nothing not to like? Eh, maybe that lead actress.

  • The Rev.

    Being better than KKvG is the standard for this new one. I think that’s the best since the original, personally. Curious which you think is better?

    The animated one, unsurprisingly, is atrocious. Showing it back-to-back with the animated “Titanic” movie would be a really good way to lose friends. Luckily, we’ve already shown the Kong one, so Ken and Sandy can’t pull that double feature without going against their general rule of not re-showing movies.
