Son of Godzilla (1967) – Jun Fukuda

It was gonna happen sooner or later. There was going to be a classic Godzilla film that just didn’t ring my bell like the rest of the series, and as of this moment, it’s Son of Godzilla. While I enjoy all the monster fighting sequences, and even some of the goofy science outpost plot, the…

Megaforce (1982) – Hal Needham

I haven’t watched this movie since coming across it as a kid during a SuperChannel preview (man those were the days huh?). And re-watching it now, I’m struck by one thing, Megaforce is a pendulum, it’s bad, it’s so bad it’s good, and then it’s back to bad again. This is a terrible film, and…

Star Trek: Enterprise (2004) – Hatchery, and Azati Prime

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995) – Bryan Spicer

I never quite got into the Power Rangers, nor understood the appeal, but they are my next stop in the Sci-Fi Chronicles book. I never really saw much of the television show, and anything I did see, seemed fairly low-end, but the film tries to embrace a big budget theatrical look with a Point Break…

Issues Vol. 14

A bit of a quiet week for my pull-list at West End Comics, but Kirk keeps me informed of what’s coming my way, and there is plenty of good stuff on the horizon… like the new Star Wars title, Shattered Empire!! (SO CLOSE NOW!!) but until then, here’s what I was reading this week… Hank…
