What's Your Favorite Monster Movie?

Get nerdy with monster movie data as the Tomatometer settles Kong vs. Godzilla and other Meg-inspired monster questions in this week's podcast.

by | August 9, 2018 | Comments

The biggest movie of the summer – okay, the movie with the biggest villain – is poised to make a splash at the box office this weekend, and Mark and Jacqueline are ready to get soaked. In this week’s edition of the By the Numbers podcast we get deep and nerdy on The Meg and other creature features, as well as the monster masters who create them, like Guillermo Del Toro and Rick Baker. For our interview this week, we asked a couple of monster enthusiasts from RT HQ – Dylan Demasi and Kevin Bauer – to get geeky with monster lore and help us decide who’ll have the Tomatometer advantage when Godzilla vs. King Kong hits theaters in 2020.
