JAPAN WORLD HEROES EXPO 2023!!! With KURT CARLEY, TOHORU MASAMUNE, ALEXIS RHEE, SCOTT ZILNER, AND MORE!
MONSTER PARTY TAKES A TANTALIZING TOUR OF TOKUSATSU TREMENDOUSNESS!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, join together to form a Voltron-esque robot of fun, as we storm the halls of THE BURBANK AIRPORT MARRIOT. Accompany us on a Far East adventure in tropical stormy LA, as we bring you the... JAPAN WORLD HEROES EXPO 2023!!!
While interviewing super-talented artist, toy painter, mega-collector, and convention mogul, SCOTT ZILNER at MONSTERPALOOZA 2023, he offered us a booth at his upcoming JAPAN WORLD HEROES EXPO. This event celebrates the things MONSTER PARTY loves: Ultraman, Kamen Rider, super sentai, kaiju, celebrities, toys, art, collectibles, and all thing Japan-cool! The show is held only once every two years, and needless to say, we immediately accepted Scott's gracious offer.
Cut to the convention: All our dreams are being realized! We're meeting fans and cosplayers, swimming in sea of rare/exclusive collectibles, hosting our own panel, and spending WAY too much money!
If that were not joy enough, we also got to hob-nob with such celebrities like KURT CARLEY (GODZILLA, UNDERWORLD), TOHORU MASAMUNE (TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.), ALEXIS RHEE (BLADERUNNER, BLACK PANTHER), and MORE!
And of course, expect the usual delightful banter and personal attacks you've come to expect from the MONSTER PARTY gang!
ATTENTION: Definitely stick around after the end music for even more great inteviews, as well as an enlightening/infuriating discussion between Matt and James. It'll make you wanna yell... HENSHIN! And maybe some other things.

MONSTER PARTY SERVES UP A STREAMING PILE OF FUN!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, play catch up with some of Hollywood's latest offerings, as well as unearth a treasure from the past. It's time for another round of film criticism with a healthy dose of adolescent bickering, as we bring you.... WHAT WE'RE WATCHING VOL. 4!!!
First we address the elephant... well, more like alien whale in the room... AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER. With Matt finally seeing this box office-breaking blockbuster, the gang wages what can only be described as all-out movie bashing warfare.
Then, we move on to some divided and often volatile opinions on GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3, BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER, SECRET INVASION, THE FLASH, BEAU IS AFRAID, OPPENHEIMER, BARBIE, and ALIEN 3, not to mention some other surprises.
And finally, the boys discuss the1967 Korean kaiju classic... SPACE MONSTER WANGMAGWI. Thought to be a lost film, a print was recently located and is now available on Bluray by SRS CINEMA. Believe us folks, this film has to be seen to be believed!
Joining us for this scintillating session of cinematic skewering, is someone who is a true master of his field! He's an award-winning writer and artist, who has brought us such comic classics as BLACK TERROR, BATMAN: THRILLKILLER, SUPERMAN AND BATMAN: LEGENDS OF THE WORLD’S FINEST, JLA: SEVEN CASKETS, as well as his own groundbreaking series, THE NOCTURNALS. He's also done some amazing album art for numerous bands including, TOTO, FIREBALL MINISTRY, GHOULTOWN, and ROB ZOMBIE’S HELLBILLY DELUXE. Please welcome back, friend of the show... DAN BRERETON!
