Gamera: Super Monster

For his final entry in the Showa era, Gamera got the All Monsters Attack treatment, with most of the kaiju action consisting of stock footage from previous films.

And what did we think of the long-awaited Godzilla vs. Kong trailer? Listen and find out!

Godzilla: The Series

In the wake of the '98 Godzilla film, with the prospects of a theatrical sequel looking grim, Fox produced an animated series to follow it up instead. In it, Nick Tatopoulos and his crew defend the world from giant monsters, with a little help from Godzilla. But does this series improve upon the film that preceded it? Or is it one of many forgettable 90's kid shows? Listen and find out!

Pacific Rim

In 2013 kaiju fans were treated to Guillermo del Toro's take on the genre with Pacific Rim, in which humanity has built giant robots called Jaegers to fight off invading monsters. It was pretty well received at the time, but does it still hold up nearly 8 years later? Or does this film belong at the bottom of the Pacific? Listen and find out!

Gamera vs. Jiger

In this entry of the franchise, Gamera has a more terrestrial outing as he faces Jiger, a monster released from her prison after scientists remove the ancient relic keeping her at bay. Is this film still a blast despite the lack of alien antagonists? Or is this film as painful to the eyes as the Devil's Whistle is to Jiger's ears? Listen and find out!
