Let's finish off Toho's Kaiju movies from the 1990s with a look at Yamato Takeru (also known as Orochi the Eight Headed Dragon). Is this loose remake of The Birth of Japan a masterpiece or pure dog crap? Watch to... no, no, it's definitely dog crap. Watch to learn why though.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Let's begin our Christmas celebration with a look one of the movies that influenced John Carpenter with Black Christmas. Is this cheaply made slasher film a gift to horror fans or does it need to be returned to its sender? Watch to find out.

During the 60's, Daiei had a movie series centered around Yokai (Japanese ghosts) to go along with Gamera and Daimajin. Should this ghostly story make a trip to the afterlife and be forgotten or does it belong in our hearts? Watch to find out as I finish off 2016 with a bang!

Chouju Sentai Liveman was the first Sentai series to feature an animal mecha and a female blue ranger, along with several other achievements. Not to mention it was initially celebrated as being the 10th Super Sentai series. Thus, let's celebrate my 200th video by taking a look to see if Liveman was worthy of the celebration or if it was nothing more than missed opportunities.

Varan began its life for American television before the American producer's backed out. Thus, Toho decided to continue the project without them. Was this the right decision or should Toho have left this Godzilla clone to drown? Watch to find out.

In 1979, Ridley Scott, Dan O'Bannon, and HR Giger created a science fiction horror film that would go on to spawn a franchise nearly 40 years later. However, is Alien really all its cracked up to be? Or should this movie have remained in space where no one could watch it? Watch the review to find out.

Whenever a sequel is announced the question comes to mind as to how it is going to be better than the previous iteration. With Aliens though, it was simple. James Cameron didn't want to outdo Alien, but do his own thing. Was he successful? Or should this sequel have stayed in cryo-sleep? Watch to find out.

Tsuburaya had taken Ultraman as far as he could and ended the show after 39 episodes. Due to Ultraman's success, he released Ultra Seven, a successor show that was going to focus more on characters and story as opposed to just being a formulaic show. Was Ultra Seven just that? Or was it nothing more than a cheap imitation? Watch to find out.

Tsuburaya celebrated Ultra Seven's 40th anniversary in 2007 by releasing a show that was trying to imitate Garo and be for adults. Did this attempt create a solid story driven series or was it just some unadulterated gutter trash? Watch to find out.

^ i liked the brain shrinking episode best of the series.
I also thought it was an OVA/OVT for some reason. Maybe because of the low episode count

I liked the first half of it and then felt it let me know during the second half.

Aliens was such a huge success both financially and critically that there was no way a follow up would be able to live up to it. Nevertheless, despite constant delays, rewrites, and changes, Fox still went ahead with production on this third installment. Is Alien 3 at least a good movie in its own right? Or is it as dank as its setting? Watch to find out.

After the failure that was Alien 3, Fox decided to return the Alien series to its action roots that was started with Aliens. In order to do so, they hired new comer Joss Whedon to write a script that resurrected Ripley and the Xenomorphs from the dead while a French director was put in charge of the film. Were their efforts successful or does this movie belong in the Cinematic Garbage Can that many other sequels have been tossed into? Watch this review to find out.

After Alien Resurrection, Fox tried their hand at a very not so successful Alien vs Predator spin-off series. This in turn led to Ridley Scott, the original's director, to return to the franchise with plans to make a film that took place decades before Alien. Also, instead of focusing on the Xenomorphs, it would feature the Space Jockey, now known as the Engineer. Was this move a step in the right direction or did Scott not account for the stubborness of die hard Alien fans? Watch this review to find out.

Forty years ago Star Wars changed the face of cinema forever with its outstanding special effects and interesting take on a classic fantasy story. It was a huge hit to the point where everyone started to bring out their own copycat in hopes of cashing in on the film's success. This included Toho who decided to remake Atragon but in space. Is this copycat another solid entry in Toho's Kaiju franchise or should they have kept this idea penned to the dead trees it was written on? Watch to find out.

After Godzilla and Rodan, but before Mothra there was The Mysterians (known as Earth Defense Force in Japan). Ishiro Honda proclaimed this science fiction adventure to be his favorite film he had directed. Thus, it gives the film a lot of hype, hype that it may not live up to. Does it? Watch to find out.

The Mysterians was a near masterpiece film and one of the best films Ishiro Honda had ever directed that didn't feature Godzilla. As such, his follow up film, a pseudo sequel, has a lot to live up to. Does it? Or does it suffer the fate of most sequels known to man? Watch to find out in this special review, dedicated to you, my fans for getting me past 2000 subscribers. :-)

Half Human has an odd history as Toho was apparently embarrassed by the movie due to people getting offended by it, so they have never released it on home video. This also means obtaining a copy of it is near impossible and even the version I have acquired is in pretty awful shape. With that said, is this film about an abominable snowman really worth the trouble necessary to obtain a copy, or should it remained shelved forever? Watch to find out.
