Monster of the Day #1536

See, this makes you want to watch the movie, but it’s a trap.

    Sad to say but even though the T-rex and pterosaur in this movie were intentionally made to look cheap and awful there are straight action movies with worse dinosaur effects.

    Bless you my reptilian friend and sin no more

  • “I can’t believe Mr. Rhamphorhynchus is gone.”

    “I know Mister Fauxjira,” the mighty ape said, patting his friend on the snout. “I know.”

    I didn’t know Legendary Pictures was making a float for this year’s Thanksgiving parade!

    Looks like the dino is doing an intervention.
    “Dude, you have to stop drinking all that Soma! It’s ruining you life.”
    “Aw, duuuude…I’m hokay…I jus’ had one tan…tankerd of the stuff…Let me lean on ya…”
    “Just don’t puke on my feet again, okay.”

    Ape man: “Thank goodness, I found the children’s golf course! I know my way home from here.”

    Went to see Kong: Skull Island last night and well, I was pleasantly surprised. Thanks Ken and the guys for the recommendation. Personally the only thing I really didn’t like was the annoying hippie camerawoman Weaver though thankfully she wasn’t played as the ridiculous kickass ‘strong female character’ we see in everything these days.

    I’d rather have seen more time given to the much more interesting John Goodman’s character of Bill Randa or the minor characters. Brooks really just came off as more level-headed Randa, would have loved to see more of his motivations. And Japanese biologist San had only about five or so lines and mostly seemed to be there to look concerned. I did think it was neat she was dressed very much like the leading lady in 1954’s Gojira but I was assuming she’d turn out to be some sort of kaiju expert but nope nothing. Jackson’s Col. Packard stole pretty much the whole movie. I guess I can see him as the ‘villain’ but frankly after seeing the men he was responsible for cut down by Kong added to the deaths of his men in Vietnam I can see how he’d easily go over the edge into Ahab mode.

    Anyway I’m just grousing here, I hope the rest of the movies turn out as good as this one!

    Looks like Ken’s been treating us to a week’s worth of cheap, crappy dinosaurs. Unfortunately, as far as cheap and crappy dinos go, nothing beats the monster from the 1964 pic, The Sound of Horror.

    I’d ask Ken to post a picture for MOTD, but… well… that’s kinda my whole point.

    Well, the last three were all from the parody ‘Queen Kong’. I assume they were meant to look cheap and awful. Which of course isn’t nearly as funny monsters that weren’t meant to be bad.

    I saw that movie recently — and the monster was a dinosaur? I thought it was supposed to be some weird Lovecraftian thing.

    Leonard Maltin described it in his review as a “prehistoric creature” and Michael Weldon in his Psychotronic book concurred. So I’m just going by what they said since… well… you know.
