Welcome to MONSTERLAND FORUMS! We are a casual and friendly online community of movie fans who like to talk about giant monsters, horror and sci-fi in cinema, on television and on Blu Ray/DVD. There are forums for sports, casual chat and video games as well. For those of you who like making art, writing stories and creating videos, our community includes a forum for these submissions as well. Check out our main index page and other board forums! Anyone is welcome to join our community!

MONSTERLAND FORUMS was created on January 29, 2006 for the purpose of giving fans of giant monster films and other sci-fi/horror movies a friendly online meeting place to discuss all of their favorite films and other things of interest like video gaming and sports.

MONSTERLAND FORUMS has 315 member registrations and over 177,000 posts. This online community is Zetaboards' sixth(6th) most active online community among over 383 similarly categorized message boards.

Fall is finally here!

Our online community is fairly small but I think it's the best group with which to discuss all the movies we love to watch and also talk about other shared interests! For those of you checking out this message board for the first time give our forums a look: I think you'll like what you see!

GODZILLA(2014), produced by Legendary Pictures and directed by Gareth Edwards, has generated over $521 million in worldwide box office receipts and is currently available on Blu Ray/DVD! A sequel, "Godzilla 2" is planned for 2018 which feature Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah! Toho's new Godzilla film called "Shin Godzilla"(2016 - intl title) was released to theaters in Japan this past summer and is a hit! This movie will see a limited theatrical run in the U.S. from October 11th - 18th and hopefully a Blu Ray release will follow by the year's end.

Legendary Pictures is planning a "Pacific Rim" sequel film for April, 2017 and "Kong:Skull Island" hits theaters next year so fans of giant monster movies have a lot to look forward to between now and 2018.

This thread is pretty self-explanatory. It is simple, but useful, as it's a way to pass on suggestions about books, fictional or otherwise, to others. While some aren't really masterpieces in my list, I blame the fact that I don't read much. Anyway, here are my ten favorite books:

1: The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy
2: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
3: Colors of Magic (By Terry Pratchett)
4: 48 Laws of Power (Non-fiction)
5: How to Be a Winner (Non-fiction)
6: Artemis Fowl
7: The Thirteen and a Half Lives of Captain Bluebear
8: 100 Höjdare (100 goodies, Swedish book. I doubt it'd be of any entertainment to a non-Swede, however)
9: 3000 Fun Facts About Sweden (They actually are fun... >.>)
10: Lord of the Rings

DC Universe Rebirth - The Deluxe Edition: DC's 2016 event, bringing the DC comic universe out of its rather mediocre New52 phase and into the much more highly praised Rebirth initiative they're currently publishing. This story isn't really an "event" in the traditional sense -the focus of this story is much more tightly centered around the pre-Flashpoint Wally West and his attempts to escape the Speed Force before it consumes him. Complicating matters is that noone remembers Wally any more - some mysterious force has gone and removed 10 years from DC's history, and the only clues are the appearance of a mysterious man calling himself Mr. Oz and a blood-stained smiley button.

I thought this was a pretty decent read over all. It's main highlights are an emotional reunion between Wally and his mentor Barry, and the implications of certain Watchmen characters somehow crossing into and tampering with the main DC universe. Definitely worth a read, but I wouldn't say it's absolutely essential read mostly because not a whole lot actually happens in the book - really it's more of a setup for something huge that DC has coming down the pipeline.



Superman Vol 2 - Trials of the Super Son: Hot on the heels of the events of Vol 1, Vol 2 is a collection of smaller 1-2 issue stories which ease Jon into his new role as Superboy while his powers slowly develop. First up is an amusing little tale about Clark taking Lois and Jon to the county fair, which is easily one of the best single-issue stories I've ever read for any comic. The book's other highlight is a 2-issue story in which Jon has a rather unpleasant introduction to Batman's son, Damian Wayne as the current Robin. This immediately sparks a rather... explosive rivalry between the two, which prompts their fathers to send them out to a makeshift boot camp to see if they can learn how to work together. The tone of this story is surprisingly close to the kind of tone you'd find in lighter episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender, insofar as it's an action-packed romp with a similar sense of humor.

Definitely looking forward to Vol 3, as well as the Supersons TPBs which collect the further adventures of Jon and Damien, which I hear has been a fantastic series so far. In the meantime, I'll be picking up Titans: The Return of Wally West and Teen Titans: Damien Knows Best.
