Turn of the Millennium Month comes to an end as Nate and Brian discuss an outlier of the Millennium Series and one of the highest-rated films in the franchise. Directed by Shusuke Kaneko, the mastermind behind the acclaimed Heisei Gamera Trilogy, this is a complex film meditating on deep themes while also featuring incredible kaiju action, special effects, music, and characters. It dared to make Godzilla purely evil and King Ghidorah a hero along with Mothra and Baragon (who’s sadly left out of the film’s mouthful of a title). You’ll learn the “secret origins” of our podcast, which stems from us discussing GMK on our friends’ podcast several years ago. Our related topics are the election of Koizumi, the U.S.S. Greenville collision, and the many events of 2001.
