Sister Ray. New Orleans, swamp blues, deserts, black history. Comic books. 1960s pop music. Lou Reed. Flavoured cigarettes. Cats. Hong Kong cinema. Some Tomb Raider. Definetely Hellblazer. Lots of Tintin as of late.
Destroyah was the most memorable monster to me back in the day. I was positively terrified of it, and still am. There is something about that giant decapod that unsettles me. Let alone its many different forms!
This is the last installment in the second Godzilla series and the darkest one. The original Godzilla suffers a full-on meltdown, unable to control his own power. His son absorbs the energy and becomes the next Godzilla, indicating that ‘Godzilla’ as a force of nature will never disappear.

How could somebody dislike Gina Torres, if at all? She’s Cleopatra of our times.
Despite a dodgy title and a questionable story behind the SpaceGodzilla, this one doesn’t dissapoint. Lots of amazing battles, good acting, and, most importantly, Baby Godzilla looks just too damn cute for me to rate it lower than 9!
