Episode 12: Gojira VERSUS Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

Today we have an episode that we've been building up to since the very beginning. We finally talk in-depth about the original Godzilla film that spawned one of the longest running film series of al time. Not content to treat it like any other film, we decided to make this a VERSUS episode and pit the American and Japanese versions against each other in a fight to the death. 

The rules are simple:

  1. Comment under this article AFTER listening to our arguments to vote for the winner of this VERSUS match. You can only vote once and if you don't write briefly about why you support your pick, your vote will unfortunately not be counted.
  2. No fighting in the comments or name calling. Support your claim and don't call anyone else out on their opinion.
  3. We'll count the votes before the next episode and declare a winner!

Never before have two titans met with this much on the line. Coleman and Kyle pit the two infamous versions of the original Godzilla film against each other and only you can decide who wins!


News (2:58) 

We delve deep into some of the reactions from 'Shin Godzilla' opening in Japan and from there touch briefly on 'Pacific Rim 2' updates.

Main Topic (30:29)

For years people have told us that if you're going to watch the original Godzilla, watch the Japanese version. Coleman questions that logic and Kyle defends 54's honor in an incredibly tense Tokyo Lives VERSUS episode!
