Episode 6: Rodan (1956) (Japan during the Korean War, Japan and the United Nations)

Because Rodan is in numerous Godzilla movies, Brian and Nate discuss his namesake film. While the movie is serious and at times horrific, like the original Gojira (1954), Rodan is a completely different type of kaiju. Our related topics are Japan during the Korean War and Japan’s history with the United Nations.

Episode 4: Godzilla, King of the Monsters! (US) (1956) (Occupation of Japan Part 2: Tokyo Tribunal)

Brian and Nate discuss the Americanized version of Gojira (1954). This movie is a time capsule, very indicative of its time, which makes it somewhat difficult to discuss. We try to address the reasons behind the many alterations made to the movie. Our related topic is part 2 of 2 of our discussion about the occupation of Japan, which covers the more negative aspects of the occupation.
