My views on everything from Angilas to Zigra
See, this reminds me of the end of "King Kong Escapes" when Kong is swimming home and the intolerable leading man, Captain Nelson or something, puts his arm around the leading lady (Kong's squeeze) and says something like:No, let him go... I think he's had enough of what we call "civilization"...Except replace the word "civilization" with "women who get you killed."
Weren't the relationships going on in that submarine pretty complicated? It always seemed like smarmy Nelson was hitting on Susan, but she was all over Jiro. And that line was a pretty weak way to try to add some relevance to a big monster bash. All I learned was that mad science will give you bad teeth.
Really? I learned a lot of things from that movie. Like, if you yell slowly and loudly enough, a giant ape will understand you ("KONG... STOP... THE... SHIP!"). Nelson was the most asshole protagonist of any Kaiju movie I've ever seen.
