Year Godzilla was put on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: 2004, Gojira's 50th anniversary.

Weight of the original Godzilla suit: 200 motherfucking pounds. That's fucking ridiculous.

Soooo, you think you guys might be able to review the Phantasm movies, since the new one will be coming out in the near future?

About that Alien movie, it's not bad, but both cuts have their pros and cons. I wouldn't mind making a fan edited version of it.

Which reminds me, Alien, Aliens, and Alien 3 all have alternate cuts. The only one that benefits greatly from this is the Aliens movie. Just the sentry turrets alone makes that movie so much more awesome. Anyway, think you could compare both versions of each film?

Laser lights were from The Who. I remember hearing that on AMC when they did a behind the scenes feature on the Aliens franchise.

I second Gex's idea of taking on the Phantasm films.

Yeah, Alien is just a classic. I like the Lovecraftian vibe that sort of runs underneath the entire thing. Under the unseen enemy/haunted house in space story there's this cosmic terror vibe to it when the puny humans run up against the mystery of the dead alien pilot and the xenomorph eggs.

I don't have time to listen right now, but hopefully you said that Death Machine is freaking fantastic. I had to watch it as part of this blogging thing where we watch terrible movies, but I really dug this one! Hilariously bad and hilariously good at the same time.

DEATH MACHINE is one of my favorite 90's sci-fi movies, including everything from the "evil militaristic corporation" to a technobabble-filled description of computers and many other tropes. They really went out of their way to give Hayden Cale a tragic backstory: a brief stint in porn and accidentally killing her kid in a garbage disposal? Not to mention her mental state, using that warped dream as evidence. There's also that brief appearance by Rachel Weisz pre-MUMMY. She should've kept the piercing.
