YMMV / Invasion of Astro-Monster

  • Evil Is Sexy: The female Xiliens
  • Narm: Three words: "A happy moment".
  • Narm Charm:
    • Glen's cry of 'you sticking rats what did you do to her!?' should be really ineffective and narmy but Nick's acting makes it work.
    • Godzilla jumping on Planet X to memetic levels.
    • The spaceship effects and the Planet X set are both far from realistic, but they're so damn cool to look at—and so unabashedly escapist—that you can easily forgive it.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: Once again, the great Eiji Tsuburaya outdoes himself with the effects work on King Ghidorah, pulling off the flying scenes and the puppetry on three independently-moving heads so awesomely that you can easily forget that it's a guy in a rubber suit.
