February 2-8 2011 - Toho Tokusatsu Film Festival

Can you read Japanese? Are you going to Japan any time soon? Yes to both? Don't miss out!

Japan is having another film festival in reguards to tokusatsu eiga - Godzilla themed for the most part of course. The event is happening at the Shin-Bungeiza Theatre. The roster is as follows:

Godzilla, Mothra, and Rodan take on the King of Terror in "Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster". Later, Rodan tags in Baragon and the monsters set their sights to the Big G in "Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah - Giant Monsters All Out Attack".

Godzilla teams up with his kaiju armada to breat out of mind controll and take on the King of Terror once again in the film that defined an era in "Destroy All Monsters"! Later, Godzilla teams up with Jet Jaguar in the film which cemented his popularity in the US as a superhero in "Godzilla vs. Megalon"!

It is the film which one SF historian claimed was an allegory of Japan's fear of the white man interbreeding with Japanese women and the bomb in the classic, "The Mysterians!". Afterward, the unofficial sequel to the Mysterians takes a turn to rock your boat with "Battle In Outer Space"!

Frankenstein introduced Nick Adams to the true love of his life which never got through. "Horny Nick" stars in "Frankenstein vs. Subterranean Beast Baragon!" Afterwards, a film before it's time with the science proves that a creature that is made of sludge is a major threat in Yoshimitsu Banno's "Godzilla vs. Hedorah"!

It is a Dream Team double feature with the comedic "King Kong vs. Godzilla" along with "Mothra vs. Godzilla"!

Godzilla takes on his mechanical doppleganger 3 rounds on just to defeat Aliens who want to colonize Japan. It is the most awesome Battle one wants to watch featuring Godzilla, Mechagodzilla, Titanosaurus, Anguirus, King Caesar, King Ghidorah, Manda, and Rodan in "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla" and "Terror of Mechagodzilla"!

Teruyoshi Nakano tries his hand at a straight War fare film with war ships, planes, and oceans of vast blue water in "The Imperial Navy"! Next, we kick it old school with the war film which combines the talents of Eiji Tsuburaya, Takashi Shimura, Akihiko Hirata, and Toshiro Mifune in the classic, "Wings of the Pacific!"
