|WHAT'S NEW, REVIEW?
Review by E.C. McMullen Jr. and Kelly Parks
SCIENCE FICTION DOUBLE FEATURE
Last week I reviewed two movies, MADMEN OF MANDORAS (1963) and THEY SAVED HITLER'S BRAIN (1969). Both movies are the same movie. The only difference is in title and market. In 1963, MADMEN OF MANDORAS went to theaters: where it flopped. So in 1968...
Nahh, I'm not going into it again. If you know nothing about it, read the reviews.
The thing is, that wasn't the first time a movie was re-edited and extra footage was shot, years after the fact, in a half-assed attempt to make it appealing to a different market. The most famous example of such lunacy is
Let me start
off this review with a caveat. This caveat is to say that I'm fully aware
that the original GOJIRA hasn't aged well. To today's audiences, even the original GOJIRA merely looks like some guy in a rubber suit. A cheap one at that. What's
more, I'll even agree with you that the plot line, in several areas, stretches
to breaking at many points. I'll grant you that.
But you'll have to accept the ranking I gave this movie for all of the reasons I
explain. If you can deal with that from my point of view, then please read on and
I'll share with you just why I love this damn movie.

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS (1956)
Godzilla vs. Steve Martin. Wait a minute, don't leave! I'm going somewhere
GODZILLA: King of the Monsters was written and directed by Ishiro Honda (RODAN, MOTHRA, CURSE OF THE MUSHROOM PEOPLE). It contained no Americans and is more correctly called GOJIRA. Then this movie was released in the USA, re-named GODZILLA, and re-edited to include foreign correspondent Steve Martin (Raymond Burr: GODZILLA 1985 and about a million Perry Mason episodes).
The American version also removed a lot of the anti-nuclear subtext in
the original. In fact far from being awakened by atomic testing,
the impression you get here is that Godzilla is pissed because the local
native stopped sacrificing virgins to him.
