Hello Everyone. As it is once again June, that means it is once again the biggest Film Review Month of the year for my Blog. I have had this one planned out for months with hope of reviewing five of the Greatest Japanese Films in Cinema history. Those films were going to be:

  • Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla – Godzilla meets both his rival and one of his Ancestors in one of the best films from the series.
  • Gamera Guardian of the Universe – The first in the Gamera Heisei Trilogy about the Giant Rocket Powered Turtle.
  • The Hidden Fortress – The Akira Kurosawa Classic which would later inspire George Lucas when he produced the original Star Wars.
  • 13 Assassins – The Best Period Piece since Seven Samurai directed by Takeshi Miike.
  • Battle Royale – The cult classic about children being forced to kill each other on a deserted island.

However, due to the timescale available to me I have only been able to review three of those films. Now I can just say what they are in bullet point format, but instead I am going to tell you what they are in Haiku format, try and work out which ones they are.

1. A Giant Turtle

A Great Supersonic Beast

Flying through the Sky.

2. The Monster Tyrant

His Ancestor now encased

In a Metal Shell.

3. A Class of the Dead

Brought to a long-lost Island

To kill each other.

Did you manage to work out what films they were? Still unsure, well I’ll tell you. The films (in review order) are:

1. Gamera: Guardian of the Universe

2. Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla

3. Battle Royale

So please return here every Monday in June to witness the reviews of three of the Greatest Japanese Films produced. Who knows, if you have not seen them, maybe you’ll be interested to see them. Enjoy.
