Welcome to Coolasscinema.com! This is a site dedicated to the propagation of strange and exciting cinema (and television) from all over the world as well as America's own grand tradition of exploitation cinema classics. From the front (and back) seats of drive in's across the nation, to the sleaze pit theaters of New York's famed 42nd street, to the comforts of home watching fantastic cinema on the Late Show, remember those classic (and sometimes classless) films of old and even discover some new ones.
Assorted Bits and Pieces: Godzilla and Other Japanese Giants Invade CAC!
For the last few weeks, there's been back to back posts on Japanese giant monsters. Up till now, I only announced it on the FB page, so for those not following there:
In anticipation of the Legendary Pictures release of GODZILLA (2014) on May 16th of this year, CAC will be turning Japanese with a two month long onslaught of Japanese SciFi-Monster related reviews and articles about movies, TV shows, and themes relevant to the genre. On this occasion, there will also be guest contributions for this celebration of Nipponese aliens and city stompers. To cap it all off will be a review of the new film directed by Gareth Edwards. Hopefully it will be worth all the hoopla, and worthy of the series.
An image link will be provided for the contributing pieces as I get them.

I've been a huge movie buff since childhood catching old horror and monster flicks on Shock Theater and kung fu movies at the drive-in during the late 70's and early 80's. I've had a long time fascination with, and appreciate all genres of fantastic cinema, good and bad. One fans cheese is another fans juicy steak. I like both equally and seldom find a film I truly dislike as I will find something of interest in just about anything. The bulk of the films or tv series' seen here are mostly from my childhood, or films I own in what has become an Amazing Colossal DVD collection.
