BATTLE OF THE KINGS
Music Video

Yet another cool bit of pop culture flotsam I found on YouTube.com. While the original Japanese version of Gojira (and to an extent its U.S. release version known as Godzilla: King of the Monsters) showed the dark, brooding potential of what the Japanese giant monster film genre could have been, King Kong Vs. Godzilla better represents the path the Godzilla series followed. Guys in rubber monsters suits whaling the tar out of each other. It's a thing of beauty.

Clocking in at 3:23, Battle of the Kings distills all the action of King Kong Vs. Godzilla down into a highly concentrated dosage of Kaiju kitsch set to a the music of Linkin Park, Disturbed, and Slayer. Let's watch, shall we?
