Because variety is the spice of life, we invited Dave and Casey along for todays ride! Yes there are some news topics to talk through (including PulseCon reveals) but it's the review you've all been waiting for: TMNT Mutant Mayhem. Made slightly trickier by the fact Casey hasn't seen it, but that doesn't stop us from having a good time! What did the Turtles fan-boys in the room all think? But most curiously, what did the renowned Turtles hater Producer Scot have to say about it? Next weeks ep will also be a true cross-over with the loveable duo, but done in DVG stylings so consider yourself naughty word pre-warned!Support the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Imagine, for a moment, that you are just trying to get back to your family, but all these monsters keep getting in my way!

From the Ultra species in Ultraman to the awe-inspiring battles in Gamera, we're diving into the heart of this epic genre. Beyond the giant robots and monsters, we discuss the emotive stories, the humanity caught in the middle, and the real differences that set these films apart from the rest. We even delve into the legacy of Toho's prop department in shaping the Ultraman TV show.Ever wondered how real-life events and political themes find their way into the Kaiju universe? We venture into modern Kaiju films, taking a deep look at movies like 'Cloverfield' and 'Pacific Rim.' The discussion gets intense as we draw parallels between the DARPA program and the 'drift system' in Pacific Rim, touch upon the unique concept in 'Colossal,' and even discuss the 2018 movie 'Rampage.' Lastly, we switch gears to explore the literature side of the Kaiju world, discussing the thought-provoking themes and storytelling techniques. From the political commentary woven into these narratives to chilling tales of survival and death, we leave no stone unturned. And, speaking of literature, we even bring up John Scalzi's book - Kaiju Preservation Society. Get ready for a hefty dose of insight and a fresh perspective on all things Kaiju! And guess what? We've got some kickass Kaiju-themed merch waiting for you in our store. So, buckle up and join us for this epic exploration!lunaticsproject.comGet Lunatics Merch here.

The Chicago White Sox surprisingly fired Kenny Williams and Rick Hahn, one of which had been in charge of baseball operations for like 20 years, and then disappointingly hired their number three, Chris Getz, to replace them. All that's on Getz's resume is a bottom five farm system and concerning hires due to myriad character issues. All that to say I am now a lifelong Mariners fan. This episode, we're talking about Kazuki Minamoto's The Gay Who Turned Kaiju published by Yen Press as our completed series. Then, we talk about Kanehito Yamada (story) and Tsukasa Abe's (art) Frieren: Beyond Journey's End published by Viz.

Yes the studios are keeping all the money for them selves and unsurprising the writers and actors are not happy about and are now on strike, and rightly so.

You may be hearing this a lot with this podcast but we are sticking with our schedule and as Lift was a heist film we are talking heist films of course. To help me talk about heist films i'm joined by Vincent from the Camp Kaiju Podcast.Warning we will be talking SPOILERS.Martins choice then fir Heist films is in my opinion a masterpiece featuring two American acting giants of any generation, yes I'm writing about arguably Micheal Mann's best film, Heat.
