Hail To The King: 60 Years of Destruction

Better late than never.

Kyle Yount, host of the popular podcast, KaijuCast,  hosts this hour long documentary celebrating 60 years of Godzilla.

In 2014, kaiju fan and podcaster Kyle Yount traveled to Japan to determine the King of the Monsters' impact within his own country. HAIL TO THE KING: 60 YEARS OF DESTRUCTION follows the host of the Kaijucast throughout his visit to the birthplace of Godzilla during the 60th anniversary celebration.

In my opinion, this is a very solid documentary that reflects how the Japanese perceive Godzilla and the future of the art of tokusatsu in Japanese cinema. Kyle does a fantastic job hosting this documentary, and manages to tap into the opinions of fans, filmmakers, and veteran Godzilla actors alike.

In the void of any special treatment for the monster king for his 60th anniversary, I applaud Kyle and his many supporters for making this documentary a reality.
