Varan the Unbelievable

KP50
EPISODE 50 
– Ralph and Jorge are discussing the 1962 American version of Daikaiju Baran, aka Varan: The Unbelievable! A lot has been cut out of the original Ishiro Honda film for this version, and without knowing that ahead of time, we can tell! With only 15 minutes surviving in this version, we are chomping at the bit to see the original Japanese film. From the amazing monster suit and models, to the silly American footage, Varan is a pretty fun ride, but feels watered down. 11.26.2018

EPISODE 48 – Ralph and Jorge are talking about the sequel to the 1966 giant statue movie. Daimajin. You would think that since Majin was setup in the first film, that we would be able to catch a glimpse of him much sooner in this one. That’s not the case. There is so little Majin stuff to talk about on this episode that the guys start talking about The Scorpion King and Mummy series.  9.20.18
