Out Hunting for Giant Monsters - Be Back Soon!

Long live the King!
Well Vault Dwellers, the time has come! After months of waiting, and drooling over beautiful posters and fantastic trailers, I am finally going to see GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS! I've enjoyed Michael Dougherty's previous efforts (TRICK R' TREAT and KRAMPUS) and the fact that he is so obviously a G-Fan gives me high hopes for this movie! So I am currently heading out to spend the weekend at the home of my podcasting cohost (yes, "Silent Steve" still lives!) and reveling in the sheer joy of seeing a new mega-budget Godzilla movie on the big screen! (And yes, we plan on recording a new episode or two!)

While I'm gone, there will be NO new updates on the main site or the News Vault, and the weekly STOCK YOUR VAULT column will be posted early next week. (Sorry for that.) And while there won't be any new content for a week or so, there's still plenty of great Godzilla-related content to read and listen to at The Vault!

GOJIRA (1954) - My review for the classic that started it all! Also includes reviews for the 1956 American cut (GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS) as well as Luigi Cozzi's 1977 oddity GODZILLA IL RE DEI MOSTRI!

GODZILLA RAIDS AGAIN (1955) - My review for the first ever Godzilla sequel, which features an extended cameo by fan-favorite kaiju Anguirus! I also cover the film's 1959 American version, GIGANTIS, THE FIRE MONSTER.

WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS (1966) - No Godzilla to be seen here, but this kaiju flick is one of Toho's best and deserves more love! Two giant humanoid monster "bros" fight it out in this tokusatsu classic!

KAIJU CONTINUITY: AN ANALYSIS OF THE GODZILLA SERIES' TIMELINE - A quick look at the many timelines that make up the enormous Godzilla franchise.

VAULT MASTER RANTS: GODZILLA (1998) - I share my unpopular opinion and defend the mon-star ("Zilla") of Roland Emmerich's (some would say disastrous) American revamp of Godzilla.

VAULT MASTER'S TOP TEN GODZILLA SOUNDTRACKS - My personal list of ten absolute favorite Godzilla movie soundtracks!

VAULT-CAST EPISODE 1: RETURN OF THE KING... OF THE MONSTERS - "Silent" Steve and I heap praise upon Gareth Edwards' reboot of Godzilla. Also available on YouTube!

VAULT-CAST EPISODE 13: SHIN GUARDS - In this cast, we review SHIN GOJIRA mere moments after seeing it on the big screen! Also available on YouTube!

That should all keep you busy until I get back! Until then, go see GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS this weekend, and feel free to share your thoughts on the film below! (But please keep the spoilers light - don't ruin the film for those who haven't seen it yet!)
