Giant bugs with laser-antennae. Bloodthirsty fiends from the depths of outer space. Titanic robots of unparalleled strength. Godzilla has been victorious in battle with dozens of seemingly unbeatable adversaries. But perhaps none as fierce as the latest threat standing before him. The menace of a broken heart. In this stop-motion comedy piece from Youtube channel MootroidXProductions, the radioactive lizard serves up his scorching heart for the object of his affection and a series of misunderstandings may lead to devastating consequences. His first romantic troubles were featured in a video a few years ago, only for the battle to rage on yet again this year, as we approach another Singles Awareness Day. Here's the original 2016 video, followed by its 2018 reboot. Because it's not j...

In case word hasn't traveled to your neck of the interwebs just yet, there's somehow a Detective Pikachu movie getting made. What's more amazing is that this flick, based on the popular video game and anime series Pokemon, in which "pocket monsters" battle it out for sport, is starring Ryan Reynolds. As Pikachu. The cartoon rodent-looking thing that generally doesn't say anything but repetitive variations on the syllables of his own name. Even after weeks of information slowly dripping out of the tap on this production, we're still asking if there's any way this could be a really expensive mix-up. Are we getting punk'd? Is getting punk'd still a thing? This question and many others need answering as we countdown to the release on this alleged movie. Ryan Reynolds has been acting his p...

Earth of the future has seen better days, as the giant lizard Godzilla has been having his way with the planet for thousands of years while the humans who abandoned it have tried and mostly failed to colonize other, less hellish planets than the one they once called home. This is the premise as we step into Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, the first of an interlocking three-part film story about the atomic beasty and his reign over an apocalyptic world. In Toho Studios' six-decade history with the giant monster and his scaly friends, we've never seen his towering form rendered with animation in a feature before. As a longtime kaiju fan, from witnessing his first terrifying rampage across Tokyo in 1954's Gojira to Legendary's recent Hollywood offering, 2014's Godzilla, I looked forward t...

It's a new day for kaiju fans. The giant lizard Godzilla is enjoying his biggest time in the sun in years as there are several separate titles with his character and related mythology all actively building toward release, both from Japanese studio and primary rightsholder Toho Studios as well as from the US moviemakers at Legendary Pictures. It's a great time to be alive for anyone with an affinity for giant monsters and the humans who flee in terror from them. Unto that breach, word has come down that Toho will now officially co-finance international film productions with their properties, including animated vehicles like Pokemon, live-action adaptations of anime triumphs like your name, and of course, the King of Monsters himself. Nikkei reports on the three-year deal, which sees To...

At long last, he arrives. Ever since the Godzilla franchise branched out, sending the atomic lizard on a rampage through the landscape of animation with Toho Studios' new anime film trilogy, international kaiju fans have wondered when they were going to get a chance to see his first outing, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters for themselves. Now, thanks to the fine folks at Netflix, the Polygon Pictures 3D animated feature makes its way to our screens this January. And here's a nifty new trailer to prove it. https://youtu.be/B-3do2pM4pM Oh my. I think I need a moment. Be right back, rewatching at max volume till my ears bleed. Okay, I'm back. Looks like the film was in good hands with directing duo Shizuno Kobun and Seshita Hiroyuki, along with writer Urobuchi Gen of the tokusat...

Back in the late 90s, Toho Studios produced a low-budget Godzilla series for kids called Godzilla Island, featuring the use of various Bandai figurines alongside scenes incorporating a small cast of actors. Among them was Jiro Dan, otherwise known for portraying Hideki Go / Ultraman Jack in The Return of Ultraman. Now, for a limited time Toho Studios is uploading Godzilla Island onto the Godzilla Channel. From Monday to Friday, a new episode will be uploaded daily, with episodes being available to stream for only four weeks. Godzilla Island ran for 256 episodes from October 6, 1997 to September 30, 1998. Each episode is roughly 3 minutes long, so it is an easy view. However, while the series is available to stream internationally, it does not feature close captioned subtitles. h...

Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is stomping its way into the print medium with a new comic based on this, the first official animated feature for the long-running Godzilla franchise.
