Alright we got an hour or so until #MONSTERDON, your weekly goofy monster movie watching party! This week we're watching MOTHRA (1961), the very first movie with Bugmom. Nothing quite like a kaiju with its own musical number :D

If you'd like to avoid the livetweets, go ahead and set up a filter for the hashtag now! If you'd like to join us, we start at 9pm Eastern, and you can stream the movie gratis and ad free right over here: https://archive.org/details/MOTHRA_201905

Be there or disappoint Momthra!

Zoom in on a meteorologists' heiny... #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Man, that was an excellent ship breakup! Good job! #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

"doo do doo, kobayashi maru... And the Edmund Fitzgerald, toooo" #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

"By now we surely should have seen something."

I know the feeling. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Wow, those guys went all Shipwreck Survivor fast. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

What is it with Japanese reporters and getting right up in your face? #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Oh god, it's the comic relief guy. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

MAN that guy is square. Shame he was born so long ago, he'd be great for a live-action Spongebob. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Oh dear. The Children. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

"He's acting funny!"

That's a matter of opinion, kids. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

That banner reads "Good Riddance" #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

"Saying goodbye to people rumples my coat." #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

This square guy is what happens when the Plucky Kid is allowed to grow up, right? #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Wow, what a prissy little handgun that man has. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

"They're MY orders."
"Then I'll ignore them."

YEAH, fuck off prissy handgun dude! Me and square guy OWN this ship now! #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Look! There's a matte painting just beyond this rock! #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

He's divining their next move from the dishrag from last night. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Oh nice, pork-chop-on-a-stick plants. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Whoops, caught by a Triffid. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Man I gotta say, fainting whilst in the grip of a tentacle monster does not sound wise. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

"Are you alright now?"

Alright!? That plant touched me in ways I've never experienced before! Did it leave its telephone number? #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Characters in this movie have such creative ways of telling each other to fuck off. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Doc we were JUST TALKING about the importance of consent here! #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

"What should I do boss?"

Y'want I should talk more like a mug? Should I use some metaphors about concrete shoes? #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

You can tell those suits are high-tech because every man has their own container of ketchup and mustard on their back. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

"Mothra... What's it mean?"

Well, chief, I've got a feeling you're gonna find out. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

I appreciate that the villain of this picture is colonialist violence. I was gonna root for Mothra anyway, now I get to feel good about it. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Aaaaand the blackface is back >_> #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

People who are prone to seizures please do not look directly at Mothra <_< #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

That photo would convince Arthur Conan Doyle :P #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for THE PEANUTS #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

...Is our villain seriously going for a cheap showtunes revue? Who IS this clown? #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Oh, they... ARE actually singing. Gotta say, if a villain kidnapped me I would not really be eager to put on a show. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Oh man, liturgical dance has really changed. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Ha ha ha "I'm so glad to see you again" If this guy had a moustache it would be twirling ITSELF right now :P #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Heh, so it's not that they don't speak Japanese, it's that they don't speak Japanese to assholes :P #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Dude in the front right there needs a touchup. His, uh, "melanin" is rubbing off >_> #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Wow, that guy is a trout in human form. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

"A monster to rescue the girls?"

Why that's absurd! Things like that only exist in myth and legend! It's like believing in 12 inch tall girls and vampire plants! I'm a moron, is the point I'm making! #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

I'm always impressed by how well Grub Mothra swims. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Man, these guys are the worst monster owners since Gorgo. They shame the legacy of the Dorkin Brothers. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Whoops, didn't finish the encounter fast enough, now you've got adds. Better call the rest of the party before they start rolling initiative. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Huh, badass comedy guy. Not sure that works. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

...Aaaaaand the twins just fuck off out of frame in their Sleeping Beauty chariot. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

♫Mo-su-raaa ya!♪
♪Mo-su-raaa ya!♫

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Tiny gun, tiny glass, tiny girls, I think our villain just has a giant fetish. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Jesus, guy in the background bought an anti-pixie sniper rifle :/ #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Quickly, to the BROWN-mobile! #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Mothra HATES fish. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Yes, Mothra, destroy the Three Gorges Dam! #Monsterdon

@otheorange_tag@mstdn.social avatar

@CactuarJoe That's Gorges! 🤓 --John Lithgow #monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Man, they're really playing square guy up as a badass, I'm surprised. He's not the conventional shape for a hero of this era. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Whoops, Chocobo spy #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Oh sure, gag him with your used tighty whities D: #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Actually, that scene was shocking. A Japanese kid snuck into a secure location and not only did NOT get away clean but actually got restrained! By ADULTS! O_O #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Tokyo. Of course it's headed for Tokyo. If god himself wanted to stomp someplace flat, it'd be Tokyo. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Oh nice, Mobil Gas sponsored the film so they get crushed first <3 #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Oh man, i love those three-wheeled taxi cab things. They're adorable. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Aw yeah, Mothra rampage! C'mon Momthra, squish the tanks! #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Oh good model destruction! I do love a good building collapse :3 #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Heh, y'know, I don't think I've seen a kaijuu flick yet in which the Tokyo Tower goes unmolested. There's just something about it giant monsters can't resist :P #Monsterdon

otheorange_tag,
@otheorange_tag@mstdn.social avatar

@CactuarJoe The tower, the tower?! RaKaijuu! #WrongQuote #wrongMovie #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Man, maybe the JSDF would be more effective if they stopped recruiting Ken. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Atomic heat gun? ...Is this the first MAZER? #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

It's got giant ketchup tanks, it's more of a KAZER. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Giant roast peanut time! #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Whoops, went up like the Hindenburg. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

"This is a real victory for the atomic heat ray!"

We'll see how it stands up against Morgo the Magnificent next week in Patascala! #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Mothra used Whirlwind! TANK was ejected from the battlefield! #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

Man, this airliner is spacious. Today these guys would be sitting on top of each other in coach. #Monsterdon

CactuarJoe,
@CactuarJoe@retro.pizza avatar

...New Kirk City appears to be an amalgamation of New York City, Los Angeles, and Martha's Vineyard. #Monsterdon

otheorange_tag,
@otheorange_tag@mstdn.social avatar

@CactuarJoe You know, if they were really mobile, they could just move! #OscarGetsAredCard #monsterdon
