Who needs presidential debates, football or RAW? We’re gonna watch a lost-ish classic-ish Godzilla movie LIVE at 6pm Pacific and really would love for you to join us.
GODZILLA 1984 (SEP 26) Buy FIRST EVER Blu-ray on Amazon
Why this, why now? Because Godzilla 1984 (aka The Return of Godzilla, aka Godzilla 1985) has never been released on DVD or Blu-ray in the US, and to my knowledge is kinda the only Godzilla movie to spend decades in legal-rights-limbo. Well, the Japanese version is finally coming out on September 13, so again, please indulge my ass and watch the only movie that makes me cry without fail.
Godzilla 1984 ditches all the kid-friendly goofiness of the ’60s and ’70s, acting instead as a sequel to the 1954 original. In this film, Godzilla has only been seen once before, 30 years ago, and they’re kinda scared out of their minds when he comes back. So as a kid, this seemed waaaaay cooler than the other VHSes floating around (such as Megalon or Sea Monster). It’s responsible for much of my Godzilla fandom, even if the suit occasionally has one eye pointing the wrong way. tl;dr – Godzilla is a bad guy in this.
SO – either hang out here or leap to our YouTube page and watch along!
