"And then pass out. There's something funny about that. They do you some stop. Motion work with com- close ups of the face. I noticed were not the man in the suit. They would still stop motion cracks. Yeah they did have puppeteers in certain shots. Yeah they always have little puppets that they bash against each other and Godzilla film. So there's going to be a little bit of that but I'm saying actual stop motion facial expressions staff staff non just later on where they take the toys and bang them together which I'll get to literally they do that. Yes and again I think you and I will just never agree with that. This is static. Static can be exactly what you want. I would not want them to make this look fantastic. The charm is that it looks like this. So you're really not looking forward to the movie we're building up to this entire retrospective till I was just GonNa say. We are building up to that movie that Arnie wants. And we'll see how stuart takes. I'm not puritanical about how it should be. What I'm saying thing is they have chosen to tell it in men in rubber suits fashion? I wouldn't want it to look more than what it's doing. The visual visual style of this movie to me is wonderful. I agree as silly as long. Looks I dig. The vibe of this fell again if you like the work of of Shell gone DRI early. Tim Burton r Ray Hausen. This is in that Realm I. It is charmingly archaic and clumsy and a way that feels warm in the style. GIC and it does change how you would feel about Godzilla. He is no longer the scary apparition of atomic fear. He is now a children's character. He's big bird. I'd like to think that Ray Harry House and would look at this ape suits and laugh again not all details tails but again even in the parts where they didn't have the money and couldn't pull it off. I'll also just admit I'm not a King Kong fan I root for Godzilla during all of this knowing that they're getting together. I want that Lizard to melt this cheap ass river eight to nothing. He's going to set those chest. Here's on fire later. Yeah he will burn his hair. We're off and what little hair they could put on the soup. But I have always been and will always be and Camp Godzilla and so the fact that Kong you might be underwhelming probably hurts. Fans of the Nineteen thirty-three movie does bother me. Yeah and I'm team calling all the way. Oh you are you want to win. You're rooting for I am. Yes he really likes that seventies film you were that way even when you were the ten year old watching the twelve inch TV. Oh Hell yes okay. Never I was never in Kong Long. Hey I think I saw that seventies cong- as soon as it hit TV. I mean I was early on and I'd never seen a Godzilla film by that point so yes always team call. Okay now. We are talking about the monsters. That's what you should do one of these movies but there are these human characters we've talked about the ones that amuse us but there is that other storyline there are two siblings. Soccer Ri- The one of the people that has come from big Pharma to this Pharaoh. Zero Island has a sister and she was established early on as being in love with this dopey guy who works for a company inventing superstrong string ring and they have a really awkward dinner conversation. Where Sakurai comes over and you can just see his disdain? For the fact that his sister won't leave the side of this nerve. Hey the boyfriend always gives the bigger stakes than the brother. It's the way it should be. Yeah is that a little weird that the brothers like jealous like he's got the bigger stake. Yeah I mean they're measuring dix. I you know you could take it there. Sure it might mean that or it may just mean to these hungry. I mean I never know but the point is we established established this romance this rivalry and as soccer. Rai is having his King Gong problems. They're going to use his sister for Meco to have some Godzilla Zillah problems because Godzilla and being freed from the iceberg has now marched home in the American cut. They will make explicit that fossils of dinosaurs source of him. He's apparently part T. REX stegosaurus. I'd never put that together. Yeah how did those two mate. I don't know but fossils of those were are found in Japan and thus it means that Godzillas just coming home. That is why he is so bent on finding Tokyo and not another country as he wants to get back back to his roots and in doing so he is going to go after Miko on a train because she thought that her boyfriend was killed. Well in the Japanese bunnies coach on a boat or the American cut on a crashed airplane and she's rushing off to how Kaido island to save all this human stuff. Okay whatever I watched it. But it's not the stuff I'm concerned with like. Show Me Godzilla Ramsey. Show me those toy tanks rolling out and shooting off firecrackers Adam so he could step on them. If it's funny I like it if it's monsters I'm having fun with this story. Line in the Japanese cut. Fortunately it doesn't get a whole lot apply. It's definitely the see list story but yeah I really didn't care about her plight of the presumably dead boyfriend who isn't ultimately she's supposed was to be like she's GonNa get lifted up by Kong and he's going to stay on top of the short spill again. You mean the tallest building in Japan. I doubt that it doesn't look very tall. Steps up on it. Yeah they build up there. They don't have a whole lot of room so I think there's plenty of tall buildings. Go from. Yeah they're going to smash big temple at the the end. That's taller than that building. Yeah she's based in Tokyo but she's heading off to an island off the coast and yeah if anyone has ever had a train set you're going going to love the fact that Godzilla is going to march in there and do what Godzillas do and derail the train. Oh yes I did have a model train Raines said and I'm like I think that is the P.. Four scale train sat. I love that Godzilla is so large like you know you watch an animal like there's an obstacle they walk around it Godzilla. He just walks through it. There's power lines. He's just gonNA walk through them. It seems like a very uncomfortable way to get around stepping on trains and that. But that's what I love about Godzilla. Just it's GonNa take that path and go for it. Unfortunately it just seems like there's a sexist notion that if there's a female here she has to be week she can't have the kind of spark and personality analogy that her brother is going to have at. We're just not gonNA laugh about for Meco so other than the fact that she's splashing around in the water for no reason when her boyfriend finally arrives lives and hides are. It's hard to know why King Kong has the attraction. He does for her. She's kind of lame and we're much more engaged. Even though I'm not a King Kong Guy I'm much more into the fact that TACO is being air lifted down onto the boat to examine his Kong. There's a whole debate about how they're going to bring bring him into Tokyo harbor on this giant raft. I'm sorry I'm laughing as Taco is like leaning on the ignition handle the set off the dynamite. That's connected King Kong and Casey wakes up like it's silly humor but I'm going with it all. I'm not laughing too hard. It's reminding me of three stooges type of gag but but I mean there's other stuff like he's being told what they're getting busted by customs because they didn't declare King Kong and he's going to be held responsible for any damage like they're sponsoring calm like he's an immigrant family coming into the country. There's something funny about that. Yeah key sign contracts. He has TV commitments dalen. And it's true he doesn't have a passport. I mean like this. This is a real problem for them. How are they going to get him into the country? I died when he looked at the navy guy and was like what about calms rights but that is only in the Japanese version. Yeah I mean this is in the American cotton again but the idea is to reduce and to clean up and to take out the personality and I think think that's why the American version. It's still has this humor. There's still the fight over the dynamite plunger and it still goes off and Kong still goes underwater in comes up screaming and yeah you realize that Taco is the only one smiling because he realizes the guy. He's backing is tough that he will be admirable. Oh Foa Godzilla. Once they meet on land and in the American version we have some science paleontologist guy talking about the reptiles. Yeah the reptiles I have always fought the apes and this is just a a natural thing that they would seek each other out and fight. There's no other reason for the conflict other than it's just in their genetics. So round one. How does it go? I can see why I remember Godzilla stomping his ass. He really does get one over to say they just kind of stand around and then yeah yeah blows his radiation breath on them. I cannot believe how short round one is. I mean it took longer to beat up rocky and rocky three than this. This this is really just. Yeah one thing of atomic breath King Kong looks down like Shit. I'm on fire and runs. I mean it's Lewis in the hair all of it again the dance that God Zillah Day. Yes the hands can barely move away from the body and so he's just kind of flailing and flattering lapping around. And I love it. I love is Godzillas. Come at me Bro. Move He's got this thing where he claps his hands together and I all I every time he does what I hear in my head is come at me Bro. One of my favorite Godzilla things like I've seen it in multiple Godzilla films. He loves throwing and kicking rocks at his opponents. And I don't know what it is. Maybe because at sued is so stiff and just imagining this giant Lizard picking up rocks or kicking them at some other monsters head love it. Yeah although that's Kong's move mostly early in this fight and it's this beautiful pastoral like four St Hill here like my love of Dioramas. I realize now the reason why managers and all of that has a lot to to do with these movies like the promise of their beauty as well as the promise that someone's GonNa come in and just tear them. It's endlessly satisfying really. I'd never get tired of it and I would love to sit with a special effects guy and tell me why is it. I look at the miniatures here and say that looks like a a little train set but I can see miniature work in different films and it sells it. Is it the level of detail. Yeah it's the way the speed and when it's a miniature even the speed is just different so you gotta adjust the speed of the film to make it look real a grain of sand on a miniature is now too big so you've got to do a lot of things to make those miniatures scale and look right no here. They're just using toys and you always want to be careful about using water to cause water. Yes expose the the model quality very quickly. Yeah anytime the tanks or the buildings or anything here I just I never bought it and I couldn't tell if it was camera angle all staff details stuff. I don't buy already but I love it. I love it when I see. Oh here's some toy tanks like I know they're toy tanks and that that is the charm of Godzilla film. I smile gladys but one of the big differences. I notice unless I missed it in the Japanese. Cut The Japanese cut. They're going to deal with Godzilla by trying to shoot him with a million volts of electricity and and the American cut. There's talk about Oh we might have to drop atomic bomb on them. That might be in the Japanese cut. I might have missed those lines. It was okay it seems much more prominent than American Merican cut that they just want to deal with this thing by dropping a bomb on it. Okay so see. This is the leftover from Willis. O'Brien script if we were dealing with Frankenstein's monster then of course if the monster gets hit by electricity that's going to empower him. Because if you remember Mary Shelley's novel that's what brought Frankenstein's monster to life the lightning bolt. And so that's GonNa make sense if that's what God's will is fighting apes I mean what happens when the apis struck by lightning the same the thing is a toad. I mean it's just not going to do well like so. It's really ridiculous that they've written it. That King Kong is empowered by binding into electrical cable is that they've basically rap Tokyo around hoping to keep the monsters out. I was a head scratcher but you need to give him something. I mean I guess I would would have preferred the pharmaceutical company to give them some royds or something. It is ridiculous but when we get to that final fight becomes electrified. I'm cheering I'm on my feet. I love it. It's so dumb I love it. Yeah and Godzilla is the one powered by nuclear energy. I mean if anything he should be the one to be able to walk through the electricity. And you're right Jacob in some movies he can but here they just happen to write it that he is not going to enter Tokyo because they've ever erected this electric fence so he's kind of walking around as end up by Mount Fuji after briefly. Falling into some pit full of bombs. That didn't kill him when they talk about dropping..

"Asking the space station that's way up in the space that's not even in lowearthorbit anymore that's in a medium earth orbit um so this is a really high altitude that they went to in this missile test you don't actually late riposte question do in terms of the the lofted trajectory uh there's always the prospect of it could go a little bit off course and now came back down in the easy for japan their exclusive economic zone um in the past they've had stages fall near high kaido island uh you know there is some risk involved here that if the through us really highlights comedown really fast um but it could go off course and you could see the the prospect for for hitting something don't even intent it well yeah you look at when we do rocket launches whether it's you know launches to put something in orbit or missile test we do it in a in a range where we can control access to the rain jim where there are drop areas where we're going to drop a first stage or where we think the missiles going to come down we clear that area and then we clear a big buffer around it to make sure that in case something goes wrong and it goes off course that nothing gets hit inadvertently win and we announced these ranges well in advance and we clear the area of aircraft and ships and everything uh when north korea's doing these tests they're doing it without any announcement without clearing these areas and in fact there dropping it into areas that they don't control without anyone's permission so it it's a low probability the something would randomly hit something else hidden an aircraft that happens be through the area hit a shipper or hit ground.
