The New Haiku Kaiju Review

"Kaiju" is Japanese for "giant monster". "Haiku" is Japanese for "little poem". "Review" is Japanese for -- well, possibly "my aunt's hat" or "a small fish that is mostly poisonous" -- I don't know, I don't speak Japanese. But in English, it means "my opinion, and you'll darn well like it" (our friends in England may wish to replace "darn" with "bloody" -- by all means, don't let us stop you).

Anyway, this page will feature relatively fresh (that is, posted every day or so -- and ye gods, if "relatively fresh" isn't a positively sparkling and dynamic marketing term!) haiku discussing and/or reviewing a giant monster movie.

Please feel free to submit Kaiju Haiku of your own to haiku@theycamefromhollywood.com, and I'll post 'em here. Remember, the rules are:

a) must be about a giant monster movie (or reasonably large monster, heck, any movie that has a decent monster in it...I am not counting the horrifically cute and perky Meg Ryan),
b) doesn't necessarily rhyme,
c) 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables.

Today's kaiju haiku (including a special BONUS haiku!):

MOTHRA (Toho, 1961)

Big sweater has hole
Mothra has been here today
Must find big cedar
