Dive into '85 "Pulgasari" Streaming Review (YouTube)
THE WHOLE WORLD HAS BEEN WAITING FOR THE REAL MONSTER FILM!
In feudal Korea, the evil King becomes aware that there is a peasant rebellion being planned in the country. He steals all the iron farming tools and cooking pots from the people so that he may make weapons to fend off the peasant army. After he returns the property to the people, an old blacksmith is imprisoned and starved to death. His last creation is a tiny figurine of a monster- Pulgasari, a Godzilla-like creature that eats iron. The blood of his daughter brings the creature to life, and fights with the poor, starving peasants to overthrow the corrupt monarchy.

Dive into '85 "Godzilla 1985" Streaming Review
YOUR FAVORITE FIRE BREATHING MONSTER… LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN HIM BEFORE!
Originally released in Japan as “The Return of Godzilla” in 1984, this is the heavily re-edited, re-titled “Godzilla 1985”. Adding in new footage of Raymond Burr, this 16th Godzilla film ignores all previous sequels and serves as a direct follow-up to the 1956 “Godzilla King of the Monsters”, which also featured scenes with Burr edited into 1954’s “Godzilla”. This film restores the darker tone of the original, as we witness the nuclear destruction of giant lizard terrorizing Japan.
