Ishiro Honda Double Feature
Ishiro Honda lived a long and eventful life that saw him forge a really remarkable career in the Japanese film industry. Though being at least intermittently associated with such legends as Akira Kurosawa, Honda may forever be best remembered for his relationship with another "legend" of sorts: Gojira. Honda was instrumental in developing what a lot of folks think of as the "modern" kaiju film, having not just helmed the first (and several subsequent) Godzilla outings, but also Rodan and Mothra. While all of those kaiju entries probably at least flirted with a science fiction ambience, Honda also made films which were inarguably firmly within a sci-fi idiom, including The Mysterians, as well as both of the films Eureka! Entertainment's Masters of Cinema series has aggregated together here in this release.
