Ranking the Monsters

The Twin Geeks
Film ReviewsTV & FilmFilm History

Join kaiju-superfan Stephen and kaiju-curious Calvin as they watch and rank every monster movie ever made. RanKing of Monsters is a brave attempt to finally answer that age old question: what is the best kaiju movie? Each episode focuses on a movie, or two, as the pair take monster cinema far too seriously, and not seriously at all, in equal measure. Come for some sincere film criticism and stay for two pals chatting nonsense about actors in rubber suits.

  • Crashing its way into the list of best Kaiju podcasts

    I'll be honest, my general interest in Kaiju films is less than average, but that only speaks volumes to how nice this podcast is if it managed to get me hooked on it from the very first minutes. Rigorous, yet still highly entertaining this first episode announces a monster series in itself.

  • Deep Dive Done Right

    I don’t listen to that many film podcasts. Let’s just say I’ve been burned before...a lot. This is the first one to get me excited in a *very* long time. And this is from someone who’s not a big kaiju fan! more

  • Great chemistry, insightful discourse, and funny banter

    Absolutely love this podcast and the dynamic between Calvin – the kaiju newbie but veteran film critic, and Stephen – the colorful kaiju expert and film enthusiast. It’s informative, funny, and insightful, and such a fun way to absorb the kaiju universe whether you’re new to it or already well-versed. Great energy and I can’t wait for the episodes to come!
