More Godzilla Tonight on Svengoolie

Godzilla Vs Monster Zero
1970 | Color | 1 Hour 33 Min | Sci-Fi | G | Toho Films
Director: Ishirô Honda (as Inoshirô Honda)
Writer: Shin'ichi Sekizawa

Stars:  Nick Adams Akira Takarada Jun Tazaki
Aliens from the mysterious Planet X, which resides on the dark side of Jupiter, come to Earth asking its people to help them save their world from the dreaded King Ghidorah by letting them "borrow" Godzilla and Rodan. The aliens are actually planning to use the three monsters to take over our planet.
Did you know that Nick Adams is speaking English throughout the Film, despite the fact he seems to be conversing with the other actors, who are clearly speaking Japanese? Adams was simply dubbed over into Japanese for the Japanese release. Conversely, when the film was finally released in the US, Nick Adams voice is the only voice not dubbed over. The Japanese speaking actors are dubbed over into English.
Godzilla Vs Monster Zero runs on MeTV tonight at 8 pm eastern/pacific, 7 central…

#Wargames Trailer

Image
Holy Hell have you seen the trailer for an upcoming game War Games? Not sure how this is going to play out yet but man it looks insane! Also, I'm glad that Full Motion Video Games are making a comeback.



You shape the story as Kelly and her clan of misfit hackers transform from pranksters to international hacker celebrities, taking on the powers that be under the handle #WarGames. Produced by Eko and missing pieces, #WarGames is a new interactive video experience from Sam Barlow, creator of Her Story. Coming soon to Xbox One.
So what do you think? Is this something you might look into? Let me know in the comments.

Outer Space Blogathon Coming Soon

Image
Ok, it has been a long time coming but I think this blog is back up and running. It will still take a few days to dust off the creative mind but I took the first step today joining a fun Blogathon called Outerspace on Flim Hosted by Moon in Gemini click here to see everybody that has joined and what films they will cover. For me kicking it old school with 1983 not so classic and not so 3D Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone staring Peter Straus and Molly Ringwald.


The Plot is simple - Three women make an emergency landing on a planet plagued with a fatal disease but are captured by dictator Overdog. Adventurer Wolff goes there to rescue them and meets Niki, the only Earthling left from a medical expedition. Combining their talents, they try to rescue the women.


Now I don't want to promise but it is a 3-day event so I just might sneak another flick in for your enjoyment I can not do a blog hop without doing a bad b movie so I will also try to do Galaxy Of the of the Dinos…

Stars:  Carey Mulligan Garrett Hedlund Jason Clarke
Two men return home from World War II to work on a farm in rural Mississippi, where they struggle to deal with racism and adjusting to life after the war.


With all the Oscar buzz and Golden Globe talk, I had no clue what this was but when it won the Robert Altman award at the Independent Spirit Awards  I took notice. And when I saw it was on Netflix it was something I was going to dig into. I love period pieces and have always said I grew up in the wrong era well this movie proves me wrong.
The movie opens with two brothers looking to bury their dead father when a black family role's up for some reason, you can feel the tension early on. And it is at this point that I almost gave up on the movie as we switch to a flashback mode that at first is really hard to focus on. We are introd…

When gangsters meet vampires, there's bloody hell to pay...

Bonnie and Clyde Vs Dracula
2008 | Color | 1 Hour 31 Min | Action Horror | R | Indican Pictures
Director: Timothy Friend

Writer: Timothy Friend

Stars:  Tiffany Shepis Trent Haaga Allen Lowman
After their latest heist goes wrong legendary outlaw couple Bonnie & Clyde are on the run from the law and in need of fast money to fix up their companion who was shot during the robbery. Finding shelter in a small town they crash at the mansion of the notorious Dr. Loveless. When Bonnie & Clyde arrive at the Doctor’s mansion they discover he has a secret. Deep in his cellar, the recently revived Dracula awaits…and when gangsters meet vampires, there’s bloody hell to pay.


Although low on gore and Vampires Timothy Friend weaves a fun story of bad guys taking on bad guys. We basically have two totally separate stories here that don’t intertwine until the last act but when they finally do meet we are treated to a beautiful ending that wraps up this odd story. But first, we have Bonnie & C…

Showgirls

That's right how about a little seduction, passion and power struggles unfold as the creators of BASIC INSTINCT blow the lid off the seemingly glamorous world of Las Vegas show dancing in this controversial film that stars Elizabeth Berkley.






The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

It's not easy being a drag queen in this 1994 comedy. Resplendent in flamboyant ball gowns, looking down over the vast red Australian desert: for three showgirls, Tick, Adam, and Ralph, it was the dream of a lifetime, a four-week cabaret engagement in Alice Springs. The problem is simply getting there intact, along with their bus Priscilla.
