Godzilla – Planet Eater – A Narcissistic Display of Nihilism

 

A few days ago, the final entry in the Netflix animated movie Godzilla trilogy, Planet Eater, was released, and to say it has disappointed more than impressed would be an understatement.

Quite frankly, the previous two entries in this film series were quite a slog for me to get through, mostly on account of the large amount of time spent on characters that had little to no depth and not entirely enough spent on Godzilla. Heck, the second movie, City on the Edge of Battle, didn’t even have Mecha Godzilla, a classic in the line of Godzilla foes. Just his head.

When Mecha G heard about this role, it was really excited… you could say it got ‘ahead’ of itself…

Capes, Cowls, & Cartoons – Episode 4

Hello everyone, and welcome to this long awaited fourth episode of the show where I go on about animated superheroes. Today’s episode focuses in on the 2009 DVD release of the animated Wonder Woman movie, and just what they did and did not screw up on.

 

 

I hope that everyone enjoyed it, and I got a bit wavering in the end there, mostly because I was coming with with some kind of ailment and recording took me close to 4 hours, even with how good I’ve been getting at recording myself. It takes a ton of practice to get things just right.

It also took me close to five hours of getting the footage from other shows, the pictures and artwork and music, and then beer slamming it together. I definitely end up putting the most work into my episodes of CCC.

Still, I can’t help but feel like I missed something with Steve Trevor and his idioctic speech, so if you’ve got an angle or opinion on it that I missed, please let me know.

Cheers!

The ending, of course!

However, you’ll have to watch to find out why, exactly.

Frankly, they should not allow Judd Winick to write anything, let alone animated features.
