Monster Island(2019)


Oh and did I mention that not only is there a giant starfish but he spews lava/magma and is probably responsible for all the worlds volcanic disasters? And we also get fire-breathing monsters, a la King Ghidorah, that are born from eggs stashed all over the globe? And Eric Roberts provides the films only star name; despite being in the film for handful of scenes in one of the shortest cameos ever?

A specialist versed in monster lore is humanity's only hope against a veritable onslaught of fearsome predators. Gigantic monsters threaten to destroy everything in their path as mankind remains defenseless.

Reality: So I spent 90 minutes just to have two okay human vs kaiju fights and one shitty kaiju vs kaiju "fight" between an immobile rock monster and a flying starfish and its tiny flying side ways mouthed pterodactyls. Also, Eric Roberts looks bored and is yet the only actor trying here.

Monster Island is a 2019 television science-fiction monster film produced by The Asylum. Keeping with The Asylum's mainstay theme of mockbusters, it was released in the same year as the 2019 monster film Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Young Ichiro Miki dreamed of visiting Monster Island, where he met and befriended Godzilla's son, Minilla. Ichiro and Minilla watched Godzilla battle some of the other monsters on the island, such as Kamacuras, Kumonga, and Ebirah. Minilla was constantly bullied by Gabara, a giant toad monster that was a manifestation of one of Ichiro's real-life bullies. Ichiro helped Minilla stand up to and finally defeat Gabara, who attacked Godzilla in retaliation. Godzilla then attacked Gabara himself, causing the heinous creature to flee. Learning from the experiences on Monster Island in his dreams, Ichiro escaped from two bank robbers that kidnapped him, and later stood up to his real-life bullies and earned their respect.

Godzilla, Anguirus, and many of the other monsters of Earth were contained on Monster Island, where they were kept far away from human civilization. The M Space Hunter Nebula Aliens, posing as a charitable organization, planned to personally kill all of the monsters on the island under the guise of promoting "absolute peace," in reality hoping to eliminate all possible resistance to their invasion of Earth. When Godzilla overheard the Nebulans' action tape containing their sinister plan being played, he sent his ally Anguirus to Japan to investigate. Anguirus was attacked by the JSDF upon arriving, and returned to Monster Island to alert Godzilla. Both monsters then escaped the island together and traveled to Tokyo to confront the Nebulans' monster servants, Gigan and King Ghidorah. After destroying the Nebulans' base of operations and driving Gigan and King Ghidorah back into outer space, Godzilla and Anguirus returned home to Monster Island.

In the year 197X, an underground nuclear test conducted in the Aleutian Islands produced devastating seismic aftershocks that were felt as far away as Monster Island. Godzilla, Rodan, and Anguirus were disturbed as Monster Island was torn apart by a powerful earthquake. Anguirus tried to escape the island, but was swallowed by a fissure that opened beneath him. Godzilla remained behind on the damaged island and was visited by Jet Jaguar, who informed him that a monster called Megalon was currently attacking Japan. Godzilla left the island and traveled to Japan to assist Jet Jaguar in battle against Megalon and Gigan.

During the Monster Wars trilogy, the Isle del Diablo island chain was taken over by the Leviathan Aliens (who called it Site Omega) in their plot to take over the world. They used the island as a staging point to gather Earth's monsters and send them to destroy six of the world's major cities in a bid to weaken Earth's defenses and allow them to colonize Earth. They were ultimately defeated and most of the monsters rendered unconscious in the process.

Later, the terrorist organization S.C.A.L.E. was able to find and sneak into the facility by smuggling a tracking device onto the H.E.A.T. Seeker when it went to the island to study a new captive known as Skeetera, a giant mutant mosquito. They quickly took over the island, took both H.E.A.T. and the military personnel captive and set the monsters free.

Godzilla also broke into the island to protect his adoptive father Nick Tatopoulos and pacified the monsters, which gave the military a needed opening to regain control over the island. In other episodes, numerous other monsters were also captured by the military: the Giant Mutant Hummingbirds, the Shrewster, numerous monsters from the Mutant Mania circus, and numerous monsters from the Spiel Colosseum.

In an alternate timeline where bio-engineered monsters known as D.R.A.G.M.A.s have ravaged the planet, an elderly Anthony Hicks mentioned releasing every monster on Monster Island in a desperate attempt to stop the creatures, but even they fell.

These monsters were, according to the films they appeared in, living on Monster Island. However, this was only in stock footage form in either Godzilla vs. Gigan or Godzilla vs. Megalon.

In Godzilla: Unleashed, the island is the first location to be bombarded by crystals. The resulting chaos allows the Earth Defenders to successfully deactivate the forcefield barriers and escape. In Godzilla Unleashed: Double Smash, the monsters are released as in Unleashed, but end up returning for a final battle against Destoroyah and SpaceGodzilla.

Monster Island has appeared in three comics by IDW Publishing. In the five-issue miniseries Godzilla: Gangsters & Goliaths, it is an island that seems to be a mixture of Monster Island and Infant Island with the presence of Mothra and the Elias. In the series Godzilla, Monster Island is a containment facility where the monsters defeated by Boxer and his Monster Wrecking Crew are rounded up to be used as weapons by the military. Eventually, the monsters are set free from the island by Kiryu in order to help fight off the space monsters invading Earth. In Godzilla: Rulers of Earth, Monster Island is replaced by an entire chain of islands dubbed the "Monster Islands" to contain captured monsters. The monsters on these islands are transported there by the Counter-Kaiju Reaction Forces mechas Kiryu, Jet Jaguar, and MOGUERA, and are observed by a team of scientists.

Thank you, everyone, for entering the contest! On behalf of the judges and, it was a real pleasure to be a part of. Please, show your support of events like this by voting for your favorite monster. Voting ends this Friday (09-03-10).

For me, the process of narrowing it down to the best of the best started by building scale models of each one of the monsters, animating them through the foulest of sorceries, and having them fight to the death for my twisted amusement. Then, after I woke up from this fever dream, I looked at each monster in turn, just trying to get a sense of each one, looking for monsters that really stood out. After all, great statistics and powerful abilities are great, but only if the monster has a great concept to go along with it. Fortunately for me, there was a host of great monsters to choose from, each with their own interesting concept or background. From there, I dug into the rules a bit. Nobody is perfect in this regard, but this is really where I could separate out the winners. As someone who spends all day looking at rules, I am particularly sensitive to not just whether or not a rule is correct but also how much effort it would take to fix if it is not.

Ohsoram the Shattered King: This is one of the most epic monsters in the contest, with a story spanning back to the early days of the world and a tale of revenge against the gods. This strong motive puts him directly in opposition to divine characters in the party. The mechanics and story mesh perfectly with the mirror nature of Ohsoram forming a solid core or skeleton for the creature. Christian made a solo that ebbs and flows, changing the number of creatures it equals.

I was excited to judge the contest this year, and I thank Wolfgang and Scott for extending the invitation. I read through all the entries the first day I got them, then sat on them for the night, letting them stew in my brain. The next day I sat down and combed through them with the old magnifying glass. I flipped some switches, ran them through the paces, and saw which ones rose to the top. Ultimately, I was looking at these creatures and picking the ten that I thought could easily be in a big shiny monster book.

There were some fantastic entries, and everyone who entered should be proud of their work and congratulate themselves for entering. Thank you, all who entered, for giving me so many cool monsters to read, and thanks again Scott and Wolfgang for asking me to read them.

Current discourses about immigrants and refugees tend to characterize those leaving their homelands as criminals, monsters, and not deserving of being in the place to which they have migrated. In his introduction to a special issue of Children's Literature Association Quarterly on migration, refugees, and diaspora, Philip Nel notes that in 2018 "244 million people live outside the country of their birth. Of that number, 65.6 million have been forced to leave their homes. Nearly 22.5 million are refugees" (357). Now more than ever, we need books that depict these experiences and that humanize the children and families who endure difficult situations in search of a better life or in search of a safe(r) place to live. The books under review in this essay depict the difficult experiences of migration propelled by various reasons and circumstances. 041b061a72
