Like Forest, I caught Deepstar Six on network TV way back in the day and wasn’t impressed with it at the time. I need to watch it again.

There are two more movies from 1989 that feature underwater monsters: ENDLESS DESCENT and LORDS OF THE DEEP.

I hope Cory does a killer bee movie next. The 70s were full of those: The Bees; The Killer Bees; The Swarm; The Savage Bees; Terror Out of the Sky; etc. The proto-killer bee movie was THE DEADLY BEES from 1966, which apparently was subject to the MST3K treatment.

There are two TV movies from the 1990s that I remember watching. The first one was JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH from 1993, which features a lovable Yeti and killer cobra creatures, but has nothing to do with the book from which it takes its title. The second one was DANGER ISLAND (aka THE PRESENCE), which features Kathy Ireland in a bikini and probably the last gill-man I’ve seen in a movie since THE MONSTER SQUAD.

Apparently, Godzilla: Resurgence will get a US release:

A decent killer ant movie that manages to find interesting ways to make the ants intimidating is Phase IV. It's a different breed of killer insect movie, and the ending is, well, strange. I would suggest tracking down the Director's Cut version of the ending if you are to see that movie. It's still a weird ending, but it's less abrupt.
