Godzilla Independence Day marathon on El Rey

Postby The Shadow » Sat Jul 04, 2015 1:00 am

At 10 PM Eastern tonight, the El Rey Network began what appears to be a mostly Godzilla marathon for Independence Day.

(All times Eastern)

10 PM - Gojira
12 AM - Godzilla: King of the Monsters
1:45 AM - Rodan
3:15 AM - Ghidorah, The Three Headed Monster
5:15 AM - Godzilla Raids Again
7 AM - Godzilla vs. Monster Zero
9 AM - Mothra vs. Godzilla
11 AM - Godzilla's Revenge
12:30 AM - Terror of MechaGodzilla
2:30 PM - Gojira
4:30 PM - Godzilla: KOTM
6:15 PM - Rodan
7:45 PM - Ghidorah, TTHM
9:45 PM - GRA
11:30 PM - G v M0
1:30 AM - Mothra vs G
3:30 AM - G Revenge
5 AM - Terror of MG
7 AM - Gojira

... and it continues all through Sunday until through a final showing of Rodan finishing around 4 AM Monday morning. It looks to be all Classic Media controlled titles, so I'm a little surprised that El Rey did not also pick up War of the Gargantuas to show also.

The times should be correct, my apologies for any mistakes, I was converting from Central to Eastern on the fly for most of it as El Rey's online schedule gives out after listing the 7 AM showing of Monster Zero.

Caught some glimpses here and there. Unfortunately, El Rey is not an HD channel, so everything looked unspectacular. Plus, there were commercials to boot. I've never realized how spoiled I (and we) have been to viewing Godzilla movies. In the old days, it was (sometimes) on a black and white T.V. and with commercials and yet, it was still paradise. Today, it has to be HD or blu-ray and uninterrupted (Godzilla on TCM for instance).
