Re: Suggest a movie

Hello next episoders!
I started collecting movies in the late 1980s when I bought my first VCR. After replacing my collection with DVDs and Blurays I decided to digitize my collection and now its all on 20 TB external hard drives which take up a LOT less space.
Lately (the last 2 years or so) I watch movies and shows from 4pm till midnight (sometimes later). I've been disabled for almost 15 years now. I have nothing but time...

As far as I'm concerned, there are way too many GOOD movies to list them all.
Here are a few....

To investigate the mysterious transmission, Captain Arthur Dallas, along with the executive officer, Thomas Kane, and navigator, Joan Lambert, descend to the dim-lit celestial body known as LV-426, only to discover a downed but relatively intact extraterrestrial spacecraft, and its bizarre cargo. But, was this cryptic signal, indeed, a desperate SOS, or was it a warning?

Japan is thrown into a panic after several ships explode and are sunk. At first, the authorities think its either underwater mines or underwater volcanic activity. The authorities soon head to Odo Island, close to where several of the ships were sunk. One night, something comes onshore and destroys several houses and kills several people. A later expedition to the island led by paleontologist Professor Kyôhei Yamane, his daughter Emiko, and young navy frogman Hideto Ogata (who also happens to be Emiko's lover, even though she is betrothed to Dr. Daisuke Serizawa) soon discover something more devastating than imagined in the form of a 164-foot-tall (50-meter-tall) monster whom the natives call Gojira. Now, the monster begins a rampage that threatens to destroy not only Japan but the rest of the world as well. Can the monster be destroyed before it is too late, and what role will the mysterious Serizawa play in the battle?
