Big Man JapanFeb 23, 2015
‘Big Man Japan’ isn’t always quite as quirky and clever as it thinks it is but is nevertheless another entertaining example of why Japanese cinema is at the forefront of the unique and creative.
D-WarMar 4, 2015
I’m normally a sucker for a cheesy monster movie but ‘D-War’ fails to produce the goods on just about every level.
DaimajinMar 4, 2015
A Japanese monster movie with a samurai twist, ‘Daimajin’ from 1966 is a slowburn film that is part period drama and part giant stone man Kaiju extravaganza.
Death KappaMar 6, 2015
‘Death Kappa’ is a real mess of a film that seems to be trying too hard to be considered cult rather than focusing on getting the basics right.
GodzillaMar 19, 2015
In the Kaiju genre, ‘Godzilla’ is a stone cold classic. The original monster movie is still a dark delight and essential viewing for anyone into Kaiju movies or Japanese cinema.
Godzilla Raids AgainMar 19, 2015
While it may not be as strong as the original, ‘Godzilla Raids Again’ is still an immensely fun ride that first showed the world exactly what would happen if two giant monsters decided to throw down.
GorgoMar 21, 2015
I walked into it expecting ‘Godzilla’ given a British spin on a Dr Who episode budget, instead it is a great, colourful thriller of a bygone age.
MothraApr 30, 2015
While it may lack the tension of some of the other Kaiju films, ‘Mothra’ makes for a very refreshing entry into the genre that provides more of a sense of fun than ferocity.
Mothra Vs. GodzillaApr 30, 2015
It has a slight campy nature but has the message of the earlier films along with their high technical values and cinematography.
RodanMay 18, 2015
The first of Toho’s monster movies to be released in colour, ‘Rodan’ ranks as one of the best Kaiju movies out there.
Shin GodzillaJul 9, 2017
Not sure what it wants to be, the latest Japanese production of their beloved property is not the triumphant return some had hoped.
