Our second commentary is online! This one is for the 1962 King Kong vs. Godzilla and we watched the Universal DVD release. Along with myself, I was joined by Heather Brask and Jeff Dean (my co-hosts from the Kaijucast) for this commentary. We chose this film because the Hollywood Theatre here in Portland is showing the film on April 24th and we wanted to make sure the commentary was ready by then. So, please download, listen and we hope you find it interesting!
If you live in the Portland area (in Oregon), make sure you block out the evening of April 24th because the Hollywood Theatre will be showing the 1962 kaiju battle royale, King Kong vs. Godzilla, for a special 50th anniversary screening!
Not only will the theater host the screening, but I will be standing up to say a few words about this monumental film and providing the Hollywood Theatre with material for their pre-show slideshow. Plus, if that’s not enough, we’ll actually have a brand new commentary available for download a few days before the screening AND I’ve changed the Kaijucast Daikaiju Discussion schedule, so that’s a whole month of giant monster madness focusing on this film!
More details to come, but make sure you buy your tickets early because Dan Halsted (Head Programmer/Technical Director for the theater) is pretty sure it’s going to sell out!
The first commentary has arrived, folks! This one features myself (Kyle), Martin Vavra and Jeff Dean talking about one of my favorite Godzilla films, Godzilla · Mothra · King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack. Because this is the very first release, please cut us some slack. We talked a LOT, but quite honestly didn’t fill the entire time with talking. Hope you all like it!
So Jeff and Martin just left the Kaijucast HQ and we had a blast watching and talking over the 2001 Godzilla · Mothra · King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack . We watched the Sony DVD, so make sure you have that if you are going to follow along, you are watching that. The good news is that it should take almost no editing at all, maybe some level cleanup…that’s it! 🙂
Now I have to move all this blasted recording equipment back to the desk!
If you got that Simpsons reference, you are my kind of people!
So if you are here, it’s hopefully because you want to watch one of these giant monster movies and hear what people from the Kaijucast have to say about it. More to come later!!!
