Q - The Winged Serpent
Directed by Larry Cohen
In Larry Cohen’s ‘80s cult classic, a giant dragon comes to NYC to feast on pedestrians. His name is Quetzalcoatl and for months he’s been hiding in the Chrysler Building and devouring unlucky sunbathers around the city. But when a criminal (Michael Moriarty) stumbles across Q’s nest, he must decide whether to lead two cops (David Carradine and Richard Roundtree) to the hiding place. Cohen walks a tricky line, combining an homage to giant monster movies and a character study of a pathetic loser, but the result manages to be fun, scary, and, yes, moving.

"Yeah? And what the f**k do you know!"
5 stars for seeing this as a kid, the stop motion, and the fact it's Larry Cohen. (God Told Me To is still his masterwork though.) 3 stars if I was attempting to be objective about its quality to someone who is normal.
Main dude is basically a young Bill Burr
