Steve's Church-Less Movie Of The Week ...

This week's Jesus-less feature film takes us back to our big green roots. Ladies and gentlemen, in this, our 1,001 blog post since 2002, I bring you the REAL reason the twin towers were knocked down ...

Yoinked from the wiki:

"Godzilla vs. Megalon (ゴジラ対メガロ, Gojira tai Megaro?) is a 1973 Japanese tokusatsu kaiju film directed and co-written by Jun Fukuda with special effects by Teruyoshi Nakano. It was the thirteenth film to be released in the Godzilla franchise. Godzilla Vs. Megalon was originally planned as a non-Godzilla film, a solo vehicle for Jet Jaguar, which was the result of a contest Toho had for children in mid-to-late 1972. The winner of the contest was an elementary school student, who submitted the drawing of a robot called Red Arone, which superficially resembled both Ultraman and Mazinger Z. The robot was renamed Jet Jaguar and was set to star in Jet Jaguar vs. Megalon, which pitted him against Megalon. However, after doing some screen tests and storyboards, Toho figured Jet Jaguar would not be able to carry the film on his own, either in screen appearance or marketing value, so they shut the project down during pre-production. Nearly a month later, producer Tomoyuki Tanaka called in screenwriter Shinichi Sekizawa to revise the script to add Godzilla and Gigan. To make up for lost production time, the film was shot in a hasty three weeks. The production time totaled at nearly six months, from planning to finish.

Godzilla vs. Megalon has attracted the ire of many Godzilla and kaiju fans in the decades since its original release. The film is largely responsible for the reputation of Godzilla films in the United States as cheap children's entertainment that should not be taken seriously. It's been described as 'incredibly, undeniably, mind-numbingly bad' and one of the 'poorer moments' in the history of kaiju films. In particular, the special effects of the film have been heavily criticized. One review described the Godzilla costume as appearing to be 'crossed with Kermit the Frog.'

In the audio book for the Daily Show's America : A Citizen's Guide to Inaction, Jon Stewart discusses Godzilla vs. Megalon as a US Supreme Court case, finding in favor of Megalon, deciding that the 'emission of lighting from its horn-like appendage did not constitute a violation of Godzilla's civil rights.'"
