I think I have seen this about 3-4 times. My first time was at 17 or so and was captivated by Katherine Ross.
Now I see it and am completely captivated by Anne Bancroft. Her portrayal is magnificent from beginning to end. This is a movie with two clear halves and the first half is the stronger, just because the character portrayal is so superb. Hoffman and/or Ross are just boring in comparison.
Believe it or not, even though I've watched some of the same movies as you on the same pages, I'd already intended to watch them since several months ago.

You're right about this movie being two very clear parts and the first part being much stronger and Anne Bancroft's character being a much stronger character than any other in the film.

Got hooked on Doc Martin on PBS. I downloaded the first three series. So far my favorite character is the big shaggy dog.

Also watching Burn Notice. Bruce Campbell had rigged up a homemade mortar and one of the other characters called it a 'boomstick". heh.

The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Cute movie, even though the animation looks a lot like stop motion.

Godzilla Raids Again, aka. Gigantis The Fire Monster (1955) ...Warner brothers decided to peddle the Japanese sequel as a new monster knock off, which sent this movie straight to obscurity and is probably the least seen of American released Godzilla movies.

Anguiras makes his debut in the first one rubber monster vs. another Kaiju suitmotion films by fx master eiji tsuburaya, and the last B/W one before King Kong vs. Godzilla makes its color debut. Poor Anguiras doesn't really get much gravitas here.

The story is pretty slim and lacks the weight of the first movie. The most interesting thing is the post-war Japan era where the age of Eastern feudalalism is literal meshing with the modern age, and the bad dubbing and lost-in-translation dialogue. Of course, Japanese studios we're perfectly capable of duplicating a perfect Oklahoma accent, but Hollywood figured we'd rather have bad Japanese accents. (oh -- loook, eet's a monstah!)

It's for die-hard fans only, but I gotta' say, the Godzilla suit for this movie is pretty good and menacing.

He knows...he translated the Tales From the Crypt theme from minor to major and ended up with The Simpsons theme.

Then I read the trilogy. Interesting ending. I'm going to watch the mockingjay just to to see how they pull it off.

Godzilla

They took everything wrong with the 1998 movie and made it way better.
Of course, the problem with every Godzilla movie is not enough monster action.

Nope, don't like it. I'm not sure if it would be worth it because the real monster action doesn't get going until more than halfway through. Before that it's shown from afar.

As my dearest love and I make our way through the Bond movies, we watched "Never Say Never Again" last night. Not an "officially sanctioned" Bond movie, and a remake of "Thunderball", but it has a nice sense of humor and more actual sex than any Bond movie we've seen. Oh, and those costumes that Barbara Carrera has to wear!!

Godzilla. It was great. He shows up full force at the perfect time. When that classic roar is let loose it was all worth it.
