SIf you miss the old-school feeling of kaiju movies like the classic 1950s and 60s Gojira flicks, then your heart will be warmed by 2005 CGI short Negadon: The Monster from Mars. Made with contemporary effects to emulate unique look achieved by guys in giant suits duking it out on the ruins of Tokyo, this movie lovingly recreates the classic kaiju era. Watch a giant crustacean from Mars fight the super-robot Miroku. There's a kind of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow feeling here, with CGI being used to recreate the low-budget cheese of an earlier time. You can get this 25-minute masterpiece on DVD, and relive the glory days of kaiju the way they were meant to be. Negadon [via IMDB]
