Episode 22: The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms

Well guys, it finally happened, the gang got so excited that they didn't describe their favorite part of the movie.  So it's up to me (Rob), to fill you in. The best sequence in the movie is the Lighthouse destruction, hands down.  We see two men working in a lighthouse as the Beast attacks it crushing the tower in half by leaning on it.  The whole thing is flashing between the two men frantically running down the spiral staircase and the Rhedosaurus bashing at the outside of the building.  It's pretty amazing and shows all of the strengths of this movie rolled into a single moment.
