I'm surprised that Megalon from Godzilla Vs. Megalon wasn't mentioned. I am talking about the spit firing of the bombs, that is just the same thing repeated.

That's a good one too, mate. Yes the fireballs are repeated, but the after effect, where Godzilla and Jet Jaguar are surrounded by the wall of fire, was beautifully done.  That was perhaps the best FX in the entire film.  It had it's moments to be sure.

Had Toho done the same and gotten the optical FX printer that Tsuburaya Productions had, the overall FX might have been better. As it stands, Godzilla vs. Megalon was a fun movie.

1) The werewolf in Silver Bullet was beyond pathetic. What the hell were the filmmakers smoking that made them think the monster looked okay?

2) The dinosaur puppets in The People that Time Forgot really looked lousy.

3) Although I adore the movie, the bat creature in Howling II is bad enough to make an infant laugh.

I think Carlo Rambaldi's werewolf creation is pretty neat and has character. Though obviously a man in a suit, but you'll get only a close up of its head most of the time anyway. And the head was freaky cool in my opinion  Smile

Similarly, look at the arms on Ronny Cox at about 48 seconds here.

That's not even Ronny Cox. That whole shot is done with a stop motion puppet. Phil Tippet's the man.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
