I’ve been accused of nit-picking in my movie critiques on more than one occasion, and I’ll admit it: I’m a hard guy to please when it comes to suspension of disbelief. I’m also nerdy enough to have spent hours dissecting and discussing super powers. However, I’ve never quite gone as far as Michael LaBarbera, in that I’ve never written a veritable thesis on the less feasible aspects of B-Movie monster physiology. Of course, I’m not a professor of Organismal Biology & Anatomy or Geophysical Sciences, either, but a wise man knows when to acknowledge when a smarter man has gotten the final word.
Take a read through the Biology of B-Movie Monsters. Casual fans and hardcore movie nerds alike should find some interesting stuff in there.
