Look (points and screams in horror)

We decided to watch Rodan instead of Godzilla vs. Mothra last night. This keeps things in chronological order even though the movie is not officially a Godzilla film.

What I forgot is how scary and bloody the beginning is. Lots of people being sucked underwater and gored by giant insects. You get to see bloody bodies being taken to the autopsy room. It was too much for Jason who is only 7. He left for a while but came back for the big fight between the two Rodan monsters and us puny humans. The end, where the two monsters die because of their love for one another, was almost sentimental.

I must say that this is one of the better dubbings. Keye Luke did the voice of the hero, Shigeru.

One of the best things about watching these movies is the boys and I get to practice our MST3King skills. We have a rule that we can say anything we want as long as we stop when the dialog starts and no one tells the same joke more than once. The funniest moment was while watching Destroy All Monsters. When the astronauts came out in their awfull yellow plastic space helmets Dylan started singing, "Are we not men? We are DEVO."
