Hes not Japanese, he’s Korean in this movie about a gasoline drinking monster from 1967. He doesn’t have the style of Godzilla or the class of Gamera, but he did get his own monster movie all the same.
The B movie is alive and well on the internet. Max Neptune and the Menacing Squid was pointed out to me by someone here. Is it all you’d expect for $20,000 (according to imdb) when you got some camcorders from Best Buy and saved the receipt to return them before 30 days for a refund? […]
It’s hokey. So was the original Star Trek really. It’s Star Trek New Voyages. It’s a fan fiction organization that lives on what you’ll donate to them on a Home Depot card. This show wouldn’t further the franchise commercially, but most Star Trek fan fiction is so bad that it hurts. This production is the brain child of professional Elvis impersonator, James Cawley. Is it Captain Kirk or is it Elvis? Sometimes this show gets really stupid, but it is a well done production given it’s done by a bunch of fans. This looks like fun.

Watching the movie is like watching an undiscovered episode of the original “Star Trek.” We have a rocket being pulled off course by a strange phenomenon; we have special effects of the most functional and basic kind; we have a strange planet populated by earthlike (albeit small) people, whose strengths and weaknesses are allegories of human strengths and weaknesses; we have a series of curvaceous women, a brash young man and an elderly wise leader in the alien society; we have a brawny hero who alternates between fighting, courting and moralizing.
