Our trek through the Heisei Series continues! After watching experimental weirdness and convoluted time-travel, Nate and Brian cover a Godzilla film that’s a bit more “normal”—for this franchise, anyway. It’s the most successful film in the Heisei Series, and we see more positives than negatives in this 1990s update of the classics. The movie features Akira Takarada, the return of Mothra, a weaponized Ferris wheel, and scenes ripping off Indiana Jones (the last one drives Nate crazy). We also compare Battra to Mirror Universe Spock. Our related topics are contemporary environmentalism and the Lost Decade. For the video version of this podcast, check out our YouTube channel.
We’d like to send a shout-out to our patrons Kyoei Toshi and Sean Stiff for pledging at the Kaiju Visionary level. Thank you for your support! We really appreciate it.
