Movie Reviews

If you're reading this, you already like monster movies.

"First up is Yongary Monster From The Deep. This film seems to be judged pretty harshly but I was surprised at how enjoyable it was. Is the monster suit bad? Yes. Are the effects bad? Yes. Is it worse than the later Showa Series of Godzilla films? No. (Refer to the title of the review). The print looks very good and is 2.35 anamorphic which is far better than any previous release that I know of. On the flipside we have Konga. I didn't like this one as well but it has its merits I guess. The movie has a pretty good build up but the special effects climax is anything but! It is fun seeing Michael Gough over act as a mad scientist. It is the same release as the previous stand alone disc so the print isn't too bad (not as good as Yongary's) unfortunately it is still Non-anamorphic. Anyway two good monster flicks worth adding to your collection. I'm glad I did."
Yongary At Last

"MGM continues to release some great titles in these Double Feature DVDs. KONGA, a goofy-but-entertaining one, has been released previously, so the real reason to get this is for the nice widescreen print of YONGARY, which was for many years the only South Korean monster film to be seen in the USA. Of course, comparisons to Godzilla and/or Gamera are all but inevitable, but the film stands on its own as a favorite Saturday afternoon Creature Feature. Video quality of both titles is fine, and YONGARY includes a scene I had not seen before: planes and military vehicles are sliced in half by Yongary's death ray...I guess he learned that trick from Gyaos. If you're a kaiju fan, this one's a must!"
From the pretty good to the indefensible

"Y'know, I wasn't really expecting to like either of these...
So why buy the thing? Hey, it was cheap and I love the genre.
But Konga was great! Misanthropic to be sure, some clunky effects without doubt but the former just added to its bent charms and the latter were not as numerous as I expected. Way more enjoyable than I was led to believe and everybody in the thing (except, weirdly, them playing cops) is a glorious, fat ham!
Yongary, on the other hand, is the worst man-in-suit- monster movie I have had the rabid displeasure to see. I have a high tolerance for crappy movies but this is just unwatchable.
So all three stars are for Konga, a deliciously guilty pleasure.

And both flicks look great!"
