It was mentioned back on page 2, but to reiterate:

Image



Maximum Carnage was like my THING back in the day, even though I only had like four issues of the series. I got the game, the strategy guide even, and it's probably why I thought(and still do, to a certain extent) that Venom was a good guy...

And I have since collected the entire comic series. It's not groundbreaking and maybe a little too long, but eh, it made a mark on me.

But that wasn't my only thing...



I looked for the JP mark, I spent hours upon hours with the JP Command Center I got for Christmas. Dinosaurs are awesome as is, but Jurrassic Park gave a unifying identity to them for me, and made them easier to integrate into my toy universe, if that makes any sense. Jurrassic Park forever, even if the best one is still the original...

And now for something more somber but memorable:



That commercial didn't impact my descision to not do drugs any more than anything else, but I certainly remember the message.

Speaking of which, are there really as many blatant public service announcements anymore? I mean yeah they have a certain cheese to them, but hey if it gets a message across and people remember, is it so bad?

MiB, Godzilla, Big Guy and Rusty, and Ghostbusters (both "Real" and "Extreme") were some of my favorite cartoons growing up. I adore the art styles they had. Incidentally, the artist Fil Barlow worked on most of them.

Too bad movies don't get a spin-off cartoon anymore. Kinda curious as to how Bayformers would look with the above stylizing.

My first (and to this day favorite) comic series. I've still got the original 12 issue run (with the holo foil issue 1)and I still just like to look at the ads.

Also, loved them neon toys.

When you get right down to it, the 90's was an excellent era for Kaiju movies. Godzilla had a solid string of films in the 90's, culminating in the excellent "Godzilla vs. Destroyah":

Image

Furthermore, Gamera got a really kickin' reboot series with quality that rivals the best of Godzilla's outings:

Image

Also, while Toho "retired" Godzilla for awhile, they let their other most popular Kaiju have a triple outing. Though skewing for a younger audiance, the aptly named "Rebirth of Mothra" trilogy is a fun series that has a decent mythology to it:

Image

Finally, Godzilla was back on the big screen in America, in full CG, though as we know, the results are mixed at best...

I liked that movie, it was fun. I know I'm in the vast minority, but I don't care. And I stopped liking the Japanese Godzilla movies when I was 10.

I don't think Godzilla '98 is the worst thing ever either. However, it doesn't really do anything new with the genre, the CG(while still pretty good) doesn't hold the same impact as it once did because there's so much CG these days, the baby Godzilla's may have been going a little too far, and yeah, Godzilla being taken down by normal missiles is a tad weak.

Had Godzilla fought another monster and been the basic Anti-hero the character is known for, I'm sure Godzilla '98 would have turned out better. Sadly, from my understanding, it was TOHO who wouldn't allow them to use an oringal creation, the shape changing "Griffon", in the film, and demanded that if he was to fight a monster it would be an established one, like Mothra or King Ghidorah. It would have cost more, so they went without.
