I didn't know that in the first few minutes Gorosaurus would make his appearance to menace blond Susan Watson. what an exciting movie!
at the time I did not properly appreciate the fine detailing of the costume Yû Sekida was wearing. I just knew it looked really cool (he was also in the Mechani-Kong suit as well, later in the movie). the fight between Goro and Kong was exciting and a bit bloody. this was Tsuburaya's homage to the fight in the original King Kong (1933). since I hadn't seen the classic yet, I liked it a lot. sure, it's not the same, but that's a good thing. it's too bad kids these days will never get to see great monster movies on the big screen growing up. there's just nothing like it.
Destroy All Monsters. oddly enough, he shows up in Paris, burrowing up from the ground. me, I think Baragon dug the passage but then was too tired to actually get above ground. he also plays a pivotal role in the final battle with King Ghidorah at the end of the movie. which is the most awesome monster battle filmed of all time.
and this makes my 100th post for this year!
