60 Years of the Godzilla Franchise in Infographics

Face Off - Let the Games Begin

This week's challenge on Face Off is inspired by movies that feature games to the death like The Running Man (I haven't seen any of the Hunger Games movies). The contestants are paired up randomly and tasked to make a predator combining the features of a plant and an animal. Spoilers ahead. » 1/28/15 2:32pm 1/28/15 2:32pm
