Big Book of Japanese Giant Monster Movies

Things have been quiet here for a while, and that's a story for the next post.  However, I have gotten two new books from John LeMay.  This is his newest book, or rather ebook, as the case may be.  It's really a lot of fun, full of great information and it's well written to boot.  It covers most of the fantastic cinema from Japan in the Showa era, and a few other Asian movies.  Nearly all of them include giant monsters, but there are a few movies he covers that don't have them in there.  I doubt anyone is going to take him to task about those movies being included in the book.

House of Dracula

Another movie that I saw several times growing up. Someone at channel 2 loved Universal's monster movies as well as the Japanese ones.

Road Warriors vs Russians

I'd never realized the Road Warriors had battled Russians all over the wrestling world- I'd seen them in the NWA taking on the Koloffs, but here's a match I'd never seen with another Russian team. I think this is after they lost the AWA titles and were working both territories. So to celebrate the 4th of July here's the match.

Daimajin blu ray

Who knew this would be possible, much less available in such a nice format?  And at such a great price point?  It's all less than $20 for all three movies, subtitled and with English dubs.  I'm still amazed that it exists at all.

John Carter of Mars

I'd never heard of this adaption before, but since I love these books I was very interested in reading it.  It's not quite the bloodthirsty version that one got with Burroughs, and the people all wear a lot more clothes, but it's pretty true to the first couple books.

Gorgo, the comic

Actually, just the Ditko Gorgo comics are presented here, but it's a great collection of some of his more unknown work.  While the completist nerd in me would love all of the stories (how many more could there be, though, really) in the series, this is a pretty good representation of them.  Heck, I'd also love the Reptilicus/Reptisaurus stories as well, but that's something for another day, I reckon.
