This week Rhiannon warms up you listeners with The Manster, an American made monster movie filmed and set in Japan. A blend of the East and West, which is a perfect set up for what Forest and Cory discuss, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

The Crew help Rhiannon celebrate her 21st birthday, and after consuming booze, she chose to revisit Mother. Cory picks up the entire Paranormal Activity franchise on DVD for some reason. Rhiannon takes in the Elton John bio-pic Rocketman on opening weekend, and they chat about the casting of Robert Pattinson as Batman.

I caught Godzilla KOTM on opening day here in Brazil. There were two other people in the theater with me, but it was 4 pm on a Thursday, so it's not suprising. I liked it for the most part: the action sequences were good, the acting was fine, the story was serviceable in my opinion. My major complaints stemmed from the use of the oxygen destroyer, which felt out of place in the Universe set up by the 2014 film and Kong: Skull Island. It would've made more sense, within the internal logic of the Monsterverse, for the military to have some super weapon based on cadmium or even use the MUTO carcass to engineer an anti-nuclear energy bacteria, like GODZILLA VS. BIOLLANTE. I think the filmmakers were way too eager to show audiences that, "Yes, we're Godzilla fans! See this reference! See? SEE!???" Gareth Edwards was better at giving us the real Godzilla, but doing his own thing. Giving fans Easter Eggs in the background is nice, but making the Easter Eggs integral parts of the story gave the plot an overstuffed feeling.

@Forest - During the Rodan sequence, there's a jet pilot that ejects from his jet and is immediately devoured by Rodan. I wonder if that's a reference to THE GIANT CLAW, where the monster does the same thing.

Re: The Manster - The two Japanese actors, Tetsu Nakamura and Jerry Ito, were also in the original MOTHRA film as the men who kidnap the little fairies from Infant Island.
