Supplemental Reading: F9 the Fast Saga



In 2020, a man had a vision. Car go space? Justin Lin was assigned the task and boy, does he ever technically deliver. But is the 9th installment of this time-honored franchise a good entry into the official canon of American muscle cars? Only time will tell, folks. Only time will tell. Until then, here’s our hastily rendered opinions based on vague memories and feelings of sitting in a theatre without the ability to take notes!


Episode 219: The Last Time Henry and John Will Talk (Before Seeing F9: The Fast Saga)



After a year plus delay, the time is finally here – Henry and John are going to see the next installment of that time-honored film franchise that is Fast and Furious. But first, let’s check in on Quibi and get lots of things wrong about how podcasts work. It’s all right here, on Zero Credit(s).

Supplemental Reading: Shin Godzilla (2016)



In 2016, manga and anime creator Hideaki Anno had a vision to bring Godzilla into the modern age with a brand new movie. This is that movie. But at the end of the long hot days of Hot Godzilla Summer, how does this Japanese revival stack up to the American versions we’ve been talking about for the past 10 weeks? It all finally comes to end, right here on a Zero Credit(s) Supplemental Reading.


Episode 218: Chickens and Horses



In our final interim episode of Hot Godzilla Summer, we circle back to horse racing and chicken sandwiches for some much needed updates. Henry’s a bit punchy and John has graciously taken the shape of a punishment bag, so you know the fists and jokes are flying hot. Next week hopefully is Shin Godzilla, but everything remains up in the air.

Supplemental Reading: Godzilla vs Kong (2021)



In 2020, a studio had an id–okay you get it at this point. Legendary pictures, Warner Bros., and Toho Studios made a deal for a series of movies starring Toho Studio’s roster of Godzilla monsters and agreed for these monsters to rub against America’s King Kong for extra measure in a reboot of the legendary large monster movies of the past. This is the last of the movies to be made under this agreement and boy, what a last movie it is. We’re not pulling our punches with this one. If you think we nitpick the bad stuff of movies we like, man, just wait, because I’ll tell you upfront that we did not like this movie. So what went wrong? Let’s explore that in full, spoilerific detail. Right here, on a Supplemental Reading brought to you by Zero Credit(s).

Episode 217: Technical Difficulties: John Gets MAD



In our third interim episode of Hot Godzilla Summer, the boys head back to the movies full of vaccine and dreams only to find out that movie theaters have become pockets of time from the before times. Trailers for movies thought long passed and gone play, triggering feelings from before the world went dark with fears of global pandemic. And apparently that’s going to just like continue as no “new” movies are coming out for at least a year, basically. Like they’re new movies to us, sure, but they were all announced and advertised with trailers and everything before the nation shut down. So it’s kinda like they aren’t new at all, you know?

Also, John gets really mad about some things toward the end of the episode that we said we weren’t going to talk about beforehand, but they just kinda came out any way. Whoops. Zero Credit(s)!

Supplemental Reading: Godzilla King of the Monsters (2019)



In 2019, a studio had a vision. What if someone were to continue making Godzilla movies set in the Legendary Pictures Monster Cinematic Universe? One person rose to the challenge and teamed up with two other people to write the script. They then teamed up with an multiple production studios, vfx studios, a couple of movie studios, multiple executive producers, and probably a shaman to make Godzilla King of the Monsters. Does the third installment of the Legendary Pictures MonsterVerse stand up to the test of time, or does it fail to connect on so many levels? There’s only one way to find out who the king is this round, and that’s by listening to this Supplemental Reading brought to you by Zero Credit(s).

Episode 216: Canceltucky Derby



It is the second interim episode of Hot Godzilla Summer and boy are we glad to have this singular opportunity to discuss all that’s going on right now. Which apparently includes the Kentucky Derby? Yes, that’s right. It’s a horse-themed episode of Zero Credit(s) and we are pissing hot at the chance to dive into all the scandals and schemes that unfolded last weekend on the grand stage of horse-related events. Is Medina Spirit evil? Probably. I don’t know. It’s very hard to do anything these days without getting canceled. You can’t even do comedy or inject performance enhancing drugs into an unwitting horse any more without the popular mob rising up to cancel you. It’s just hard to know what’s “right” these days, you know? If you don’t, let’s find out! Right here on Zero Credit(s).


Featured are for the supplemental reading of Kong Skull Island

Supplemental Reading: Kong: Skull Island (2017)



In 2017, a studio had a vision of continuing a franchise they had started in 2014 with CGI monsters the size of buildings doing monster stuff while some people ran around and yelled about there being monsters. But with Godzilla set in the current day, how could they reveal that monsters exist for a second time? The answer: set it in the past and make it a secret that monsters exist while doing the whole monsters exist plot again. Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman, John C Reilly, Toby Kebbell, Marc Evan Jackson, and more are all here to be separated in the first few minutes of arriving on Skull Island so that we have different parties with different goals to follow and the tensions are high. Is this very much influenced by Vietnam War movies flick a treat for the senses, or is it whatever the opposite of that would be? It’s time we ended something, once and for all – the movie isn’t too quotable so this paraphrase will have to do – right now, on Zero Credit(s).
