FTT Off-Topic: MST3K's Godzilla Vs. Megalon

Um, OK, Monster Movie
Finally available on DVD in my Netflix queue, it's one of the more inexplicable Japanese monster movies from the decline era of Godzilla movies. I can't get enough MST / Rifftrax stuff in my life. This one's pretty rare for whatever reason, because getting the rights for these things can't be easy for not very much money. This one gives you callouts like...

"The gods do not improve of this inept car chase sequence"

"It's amazing what they are doing with HO scale these days"

"Saigon. I can't believe I'm in a model of Saigon."

"Rex Dart, Eskimo Spy"

The inescapable horror of horrifically voiced Japanese 8-year-old boy actor with his shorts that look like diapers ("What now?" Crow: "Scream. Die maybe")

"Kill indiscriminately!"

Evil American Oscar Wilde to explain the villain's plot for no reason, the villain being some furbag with a dance team, and the grinning death head that never blinks or moves, and is called, for no reason at all, Jet Jaguar.

So if you're a fan of this kind of thing, queue it up and be glad, and if you are not, you are wrong and I am right. Even though it's always a little disappointing where Godzilla is the Good Monster and Friend To Children, when the happier ending in all of these would be Godzilla Eats Hateful Children...
