Episode 6: Godzilla with a Dong

The Geeks recreate what they deem "the ghost recording," an episode they accidentally deleted. They discuss the trailers for Transformers: Age of Extinction, Godzilla, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

This episode features the song Everybody's Sick of Me by Strangefellas.

Also check out the Comic Cave.

  1. I'm in the middle of listening to your episode and I noticed an error. Fire Rodan came about in the 90s, not the 80s. He debuted in the 1994 movie Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II.

    Godzilla killed Rodan and then Baby Godzilla resurrects Rodan from the dead using psychic powers and he gains fire breath as a result.

    Also Mothra's powder is acidic and burns Godzilla's face. She beats Godzilla in their first fight.

    There were only two Godzilla movies in the 80s. Godzilla 1984 and Godzilla vs. Biolante.

  2. Sometimes I like to use the full form of Red, which is Redolent.

    On your remarks about no one remembering an alien invasion: I'm not so sure that's unrealistic. No one I talk to seems to remember the alien invasion last summer. I think some of them might be CIA planted agents to mess with my mind.

    Also, I agree, Border's was the shit. I met a chick there for a date once(we went other places afterwards.) We were both there for about an hour thinking the other was late when in reality we just did not know the other was there. That is an apt summary of my entire relationship with that woman.

    Also, later that night, when she was leaving my house, I heard a loud banging sound and went outside to discover that she ran over my mailbox. I called and asked if there was a reason she just hit my mailbox and she replied, "Oh, that's what that noise was." Then she laughed.

    Also, the new Godzilla. I'm excited because it's what they tried to do in the 90s. Making Godzilla more of a force of nature fighting monsters but not to save humanity. Godzilla is indifferent to humanity.

    Yes, the 90s Godzilla movies were ridiculous, but I think they wanted to be serious. I'm pretty sure Toho thought they were making a time travel masterpiece of non-linear story telling when they made Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah. Then Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla has that cool subplot with the guy who wants revenge on Godzilla.

    I also think that making Godzilla a metaphor for nature works. You can't talk about the atomic bomb without talking about man vs. nature. That is the core issue with the atomic bomb. Gojira has themes about the loss of tradition as well.

    Also, Godzilla vs. Hedorah tried pretty hard to be serious, too. Then Godzilla uses his fire breath to fly.

    Have you seen the Godzilla snickers commercial? It reminds me of Godzilla 1984 with their American inserted scenes with Dr. Pepper in them. I hope there's snicker's product placement in this film.

    Bryan Cranston gets trapped by Godzilla in a huge bunker and thinks he will starve to death. Then he finds ten tons worth of cases of snickers bars.
