You can’t beat a monster that’s oversized, mildly annoyed, and let loose on overpopulated areas full of high-rise buildings - and if it then manages to trample a group of vapid twenty-something yuppies then as far as we’re concerned here on the TDF Film Podcast team, it deserves a bloomin’ medal! In our 28th episode we take a look at three very different monsters & their movies, spanning 75yrs and two continents between them.

Mike’s pick is the grand-daddy of all city-worrying beasties: King Kong, a monster movie so beloved and seminal that it’s been remade twice. Next up is perhaps the most famous of the fire-breathing intergalactic space turtles: Gamera, a Godzilla rip-off that’s been resurrected and re-imagined with a great deal of care and affection over the years despite its hokey origins, so we’ll let John explain why it’s a firm favourite amongst Kaiju fans! From 1960s Japan we move all the way to post-9/11 New York in Cloverfield, a monster who is certainly deserving of that aforementioned medal in my books, but Rob’s even more enthusiastic about the creature and film so he’ll be covering that!
