Ok, radio and film day. Since mentioning comics brings the hate.
That line a few entries down about "The Pacific--Ocean of Death!" is from Ebert's review of Gamera: Guardian of the Universe. Which is also where the title for this entry comes from.
Yes, three stars for Gamera, the children's friend. Why?
``Gamera'' is not a good movie but it is a good moviegoing experience. I am reminded of Pauline Kael's wise observation: The movies are so seldom great art that we should not go unless we can appreciate great trash. I am satiated, for the time being, by terrorists and fireballs and bomb threats and special effects, and my eyes yearn for new sights such as a giant radioactive bat trapped inside a baseball dome and emitting green rays. (There is even a voluptuous pleasure to be derived from simply typing the words ``emitting green rays.'') Please, Mister, show me something new.
Because Ebert effin' rules. Next question?
Ok, the lyrics were:
312 Gamera vs. Guiron "Bouncy Gamera Song" [On the satellite:] JOEL: Let's go, Gamera! [music starts] ALL: Gamera! Gamera! Gamera is really neat. Gamera is filled with meat. We've been eating Gamera! Shell Teeth Eyes Flames Claws Breath Scales Fun! SERVO: Dr. Forrester is kind of a jerk, and Frank is really dumb, too. CROW: We have to take part in these lame experiments. JOEL: But do we complain? SERVO: No! JOEL: No! CROW: Yes! SERVO: Huh? So we hi-keeba all over the place-- JOEL: --and talk of a thousand wonderful days. SERVO: Everybody now! ALL: Gamera is really sweet, he is filled with turtle meat. Now we have Commercial Sign! Transcribed by Lisa Jenkins.
Any other questions you really don't want the answers to? Something about Kaiju Big Battel, perhaps?
Didn't think so.
