Here’s a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Tie-ins, a monthly series where we take a classic movie and connect it to a film discussed on our main show. This month we chose to tie into the regular show in a bit of an unconventional way, as we decided to talk about the original 1954 Godzilla, a seminal kaiju movie which is both an animal attack creature feature and a disaster film, which connects all movies we discuss this month. Over the course of our sombre and serious conversation you will hear us talk about the morality of Godzilla as a cautionary tale and a post-WWII lament, the circular irony of its themes, the importance of localizing a big picture narrative, iconic special effects and much more!
