A few months ago our regular correspondent Jason Spear wrote in and, among other things, started a chat about fandom. This conversation became a much larger thing than we thought it would and expanded with other listeners chiming in to add their opinions to an already heated topic. When Jason realized that his off-the-cuff remarks had spawned a discussion that painted his comments in a dark light he felt the need to clarify what he meant. So, we decided to craft an entire episode around a discussion of fandom, Godzilla and just what it means to be wary of disrespectful filmgoers.
This is an odd show for us as there is no single film that we talk about for the length of the episode even if we do spend a long time on SHIN GODZILLA (2016). Indeed, there is a lot of Godzilla talk (hence the title) with much love expressed for the Big G and his costars. Of course, this being a show with Rod and
hosting there are a number of tangents starting with general bitching about
late-era Bruno Mattei films. And there are few things funnier (or sadder,
really) than Jason's tales of bad luck with crappy audiences in movie theaters.
But, happily, he also has many stories of his journeys to Japan and his
visits to a number of cultural landmarks that only genre fans or small children would give the first damn about!
Giant Gundam suits should be stationed everywhere, in my opinion.
