Ranking the Monsters: Destroy All Monsters (1968) & King of the Monsters (2019)

For the 1,000th piece of content on thetwingeeks.com, our kaiju connoisseurs explore two monster ensemble pieces with drastically different outcomes.

Join kaiju-superfan Stephen and kaiju-curious Calvin as they watch and rank every monster movie ever made.

Come for some sincere film criticism and stay for two pals chatting nonsense about actors in rubber suits.
