kaiju studios


Shin Godzilla is up to his old tricks again, that rascal!

This scene really needed this music. I really feel like it captures what Hideki Anno was trying to convey.



A casual movie fan wouldn’t put Studio Ghibli and giant kaiju monsters in the same picture. But this film gives us that very scenario. Produced by the legendary Japanese animation studio, this short became a viral sensation a few years ago. Viewers watched in awe as a giant creature wreaked havoc through Tokyo. Think Godzilla meets Attack on Titan.  With the talent behind this project, needless to say that the CGI and models/puppets are kick-ass. I’d rather see a feature version of this than another bland film like Pacific Rim.

Things get even weirder when Scooby recruits one of his oldest friends, Pac-Man, to help him. The Climax of the movie reveals that the fight had been secretly planned and orchestrated by none other than Scrappy, who had poisoned the Scooby Snacks so that they would taste differently to Scooby and Shaggy. His ultimate plan was to release Josie and the Pussycats from their deep-freeze hibernation and use their power to take over the world, but it was thwarted when Pac-Man, who was mostly a neutral party, stops him; in the process, he too realizes that he has ghost in his past that he needs to move on from. 

2027: Hong Kong. Previously deemed to racist too make a movie out of, Hanna-Barbera works around this problem by whitewashing the cast. The movie turns out to be a mediocre physiological thriller about Hong Kong Phooey.

2027 (CC): Cow and Chicken. In a surprise development, Cartoon-Cartoon released the long awaited Cow and Chicken movie. The movie, being the first in either series to be rated R, quickly gained a massive following and became of the most iconic in the franchise despite its low budget.
