and I cried laser tears

I happen to be friends with a skull researching, b-movie loving, amazingly nice guy who has regular bad movie nights at his apartment. You should check out what he has to say about Moscow.
Anyhow we saw yet another fantastically terrible movie at his place last night. Godzilla vs. Hederoth (Hederoth, is that right? Correct me if I'm wrong).
This fine piece of cinematic work really has only enough material for a standard TV show (read about 25 min) but was an hour and a half long. Not that the flashing match box car lights weren't thrilling, I'm just saying they could have tightened it up a little.
Anyhow the Japanese are polluting so much that a monster is created out of the pollution. He unlike all other living creatures is made of the stuff of diamonds...that's right, carbon...CRAZY! Anyhow Godzilla is no longer the evil doer of past movies but rather a super hero that saves Japan on a semi-regular basis. He has some pretty fantastic theme music that he dances to a lot, and the fights include a lot of smack talking (read cat cleaning like gestures) between the monsters and Godzilla generally getting his but kicked by a sulfuric acid spewing monster.
The real hero of this movie however was a little Japanese kid in short shorts. These were some seriously short shorts people, complete with suspenders. He's the one who really knows what's going on.
After a hippy party over looked by creepy grey men in the bushes Godzilla finally lays the smack down and what a smackdown it fact it is so good that the director of the movie decided that it need to happen twice instead of once....that's right he destroys the same monster twice.
Also this is the only movie I've ever seen where a monster get high off of an industrial smoke stack.

this is just some of the quality quality programming that I've had the privilege of watching over the past 3 or so years here. College is certainly edifying.

Isn't it weird, those short shorts. What a great title to this blog. I may need to quote you on that.
