Episode 78. SERIOUS SERIES 3: Gargantuan Godzilla Generations

A true giant of film history is our focus this week as Alex and Jonathan take on three films from different eras of the Godzilla franchise: Godzilla (1954), Godzilla vs. King Ghidora (1991), and Godzilla (2014) (with a special shoutout to Shin Godzilla (2016)). We talk about the post-war fears in the themes of the original film, the campy monster films that the series became for many years, and how the modern iterations have attempted to bring the series back to life.
