" Latitude Zero Movie Review
"Latitude Zero" is Toho's version of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," and it is a lot of fun. Watching McKenzie and Malic battle is like a game of chess, but with underwater homing missiles, holographic decoy submarines, lasers, rocketpacks, and surgically-created monsters.
I also love Cesar Romero as the nefarious Dr. Malic; he is a cartoon villain played perfectly straight. Any movie featuring a giant, flying lion (with the brain of an Asian woman) is good to go by me.
Tokyo Shock recently released this movie and "The Legend of Dinosaurs and Monster Birds" on DVD. Both of them are the best versions I have ever seen of either movie.
The deepest dive ever made was by the Trieste in 1960.
Actor Joseph Cotton appeared in more than a hundred films and television shows, everything from "Citizen Kane" to "The Rockford Files." He also played Dr. Vesalius in one of my favorite films, The Abominable Dr. Phibes.
During the podcast, I refer to Dr. Malic's base as "Blood Rock," "Black Rock," and "Blood Island." "Blood Rock" is the correct name; I don't know why I cannot get it right.
