This week we have an epic battle for the Super duper heavyweight championship of the world. Two Iconic film creations face off in a fight that has been set up by three preceding films, and a hundred older films, cartoons and comic books.
In one corner, we have the old man of giant monster movies. He has been around since 1933, and he comes to us fighting out of Skull Island. Well over 800lbs, he was King long before a giant fire breathing lizard was ever thought of. By land, sea and air, Kong makes his way to the final match in Hong Kong.
In the other corner, recently crowned “King of the Monsters” in his last film, and towering over both Hong Kong and King Kong, the original rubber-suited hero of dozens of Toho movies from the last 60 years, he is a radiation breathing menace and likely to take out an opponent bot by knockout but incineration…Godzilla.
We have four Titans of our own to match against this movie. Richard is joined this week by Heather Baxendale-Walsh, Jeanette Ward and Howard Casner. Each of our guests delivers a haymaker or two to this film, but also takes a few punches as well. As usual, the human component of a movie featuring giant monsters, may not be the thing that brings you to this podcast.
