The balrog looks like a giant pussy.
You're thinking of Sauron's Eye
What about the Rancor?
Stay Puff is the best!
That pussy didn't last more than 5 minutes before he was counting the lights. And he did the J.O.B. to a fucking door.
did anybody see The Host?
N o mention of Glenn Manning? The amazing Colossal Man? And Jacksons' Kong? Give me the 33 version where the woman had the good sense to be terrified of a huge friggin' gorilla from start to finish! Falling for the ape is so ridiculous!
I have. I just burned it to DVD the other day, actually. Pretty good film, although it's got issues:
1) I felt it went a little long. It's about 2 hours long, it should have been at least 15 minutes less than that - maybe 30 minutes.
2) You see the monster a LOT - which isn't so bad, but for me, it kill a little bit of the suspense you would otherwise get if you had the monster more of a mysterious, unseen menace.
3) The film doesn't seem to know at times if it wants to be a horror movie, a drama, or a comedy - yes, a comedy - and the transitions in the film between the three are awkward.
It's entertaining though. The monster is this fucked up thing that looks partly like a giant tadpole, partly like a really hideous, mutated eel with big-ass forelimbs.
The first 20 minutes are really solid - the monster's initial rampage on the shore of the river is really fucking fun.
I described the movie to a friend as having multiple personality disorder. It's worth seeing, but I probably wouldn't watch it again.
Good point. What a pussy. :icon_mrgr
Since ROTJ has been on alot lately, there is something I noticed and its been bugging me. Luke is a Jedi, he could have brought the door down with his powers, instead of using a rock to hit the control panel. Great list btw the way, I would like to nominate the creature from Deep Sea Rising.
Well if he would've done that he couldn't have been able to show off his amazing throwing abilities. :icon_roll
Godzilla from the original "Gojira" was AWESOME.
Aliens are a pretty good monster, why the fuck aren't they on the list?
Mull from "Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster"
Mike Tyson could've taken all of them down.
Also snubbed from the list: Torgo
In response to the question of if Torgo is truly a monster, Tom Servo offers his opinion:
"Well, I think that uh... sure, yeah. It seems to me that... yeah. Exaggerated physical attribute, in this case, the knees, used to induce terror. Yeah, I guess Torgo's a monster."
Well Torgo did cause a few suicides
Most of the monsters are giant, along the lines of Cloverfield's Cecil the Sea Monster. Torgo was only giant in spirit. We love you you hobble kneed bastard!
I wouldn't even put Eegah on the list. (Watch Out For Snakes.)
