The 1960s and 1970s, a time when a proliferation of American television programs aired the seemingly never ending treat of Kaiju Eiga (giant monster movie). Decades before instant viewing, television channels aired weekend creature feature spectaculars that unleashed an array of towering, city-stomping, terrors with names like Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, Kong, Ghidorah, and Them! Skyscrapers were toppled! Panic filled the streets! And the fans of a good monster romp enjoyed every thrilling moment of the spectacle!
In this fun-filled collection numerous monster movies of yesteryear are reviewed and reflected upon to study their appeal for one child and how that attachment still lasts forty years later. Classics like King Kong, Godzilla vs. Monster Zero, and War of the Gargantuas are detailed and honored with full appreciation. Less memorable titles such as Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster, Frankenstein Conquers the World, and King Kong Escapes are thoroughly skewered (and deservedly so). In all, 23 classic movies from Japan and America are analyzed with sarcastic charm by a true genre-enthusiast who still thrives from the unbridled excitement of seeing a giant monster destroy a pagoda.
There Goes Tokyo! is a 280-page humorous love letter from a fan of Kaiju Eiga for fans of Kaiju Eiga.
