Reigo vs Yamato

Has anyone else seen this Japanese Kaiju film? It was the worst Kaiju film I've ever seen with really awful special effects. I've seen video games with better special effects. This film does not appear to be available in the United States. Probably because it is too terrible to be worth it. I had to watch a German import DVD with only German audio and subtitles. I would have enjoyed the film anyways if it had not stunk so bad.

When I hear a story I usually try to imagine where it’s taking place relative to my location. I can’t do that when I read stories set on other planets, because planets are always moving relative to each other, so often find it slightly harder to visualise the setting. Is this issue unique to me?

I more or less know exactly where my house is on the planet (like to the point that I can zoom in on it from a full view of the globe, on google Earth). If some one tells me a story that takes place in say ...Japan, I'll imagine where Japan is relative to my house and sort of mentally travel there.

If there's no fixed direction for me to imagine the story as having taken place in, I find it slighly harded to get into the story. As you can imagine this pretty much only comes into play when I read sci-fi and fantasy.

I have, sort of, mental workrounds. Like I always imagine Mars as being in the western night sky, because the sun rises in the east and I know mars is behind us relative to the sun. I know that doesn't make any sense literally, but it helps me visualise things if ever I'm hearing a story set on Mars.
