The Three Musketeers (1939), starring Don Ameche and the Ritz Brothers

I’ve known of the Ritz Brothers for some time, although I’ve not seen many of their movies.  Previously, the only one of their movies that I saw  was  The Gorilla (with Bela Lugosi).  And I wasn’t impressed with their comedy.  The Three Musketeers, however, has totally changed my opinion of the Ritz Brothers.

Prehistoric Women (1967) - Hammer Films

Hammer Films, having made  One Million B.C., had all of these leftover sets — what to do with them? Make a very campy, rather silly, “Cavegirls in trouble” film, of course. It’s campy in the style of the 1960’s  Batman TV series, only with lots of girls in skimpy fur bikinis. Seriously.

Godzilla 2000 (1999)

In a very real sense,  Godzilla 2000  is the movie that the American  Godzilla movie (starring Matthew Broderick) should have been.   The movie begins with a semi-independent researcher taking a reporter (along with his young daughter) to a  potential Godzilla sighting. Where they get more than they bargained for. They soon see Godzilla face to face, giving them (and the audience) an  appreciation for just how truly large, and imposing, Godzilla is compared to relatively puny human beings.   The reporter panics and takes several flash photographs of Godzilla. These annoy him and he pursues them through the small tunnel that they’re driving through …. With his massive feet breaking through the ground shortly behind him.

Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla (1994)

Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla is a campy Godzilla movie, in the style of “two guys in rubber suits pretending that they’re in the WWE”.  I enjoyed it, but that’s the kind of monster movie that I grew up with; if you are in the mood for a more serious movie, I’d suggest  Godzilla 2000,  Godzilla vs. DestoroyahGodzilla Final Wars, or the original Godzilla.   This isn’t that kind of movie–it’s the kind of mindless enjoyment that’s perfect for a rainy, or snowy, Saturday afternoon with a tub of popcorn and your children.

Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (2000)

Godzilla vs. Megaguirus is an old-school Godzilla movie …. And I mean that in the best way possible.   It’s not a social commentary or serious film like the original  Godzilla movie.  It’s  the best kind of two monster face-off Godzilla movie that I grew up watching.   Godzilla is portrayed here as a destructive force of nature.  One that has caused incalculable destruction and loss of life to the people in Japan.   In fact, two of the main characters are very strong women, one younger and one older.  Both of them have lost people close to them during Godzilla’s rampages.   Accordingly, the Japanese government has undertaken a  high-tech project, to get rid of Godzilla once and for all.  Dimension Tide, an attempt at creating a controlled, minute black hole to imprison Godzilla inside forever.
