Recommend A Toho Film

For discussions covering more than one Toho film or show that span across more than one “era.”

Recommend A Toho Film

Postby Lain Of The Wired » Sun Dec 08, 2013 11:19 am

The thread's name says it all, doodily-do you recommend a Toho film?
There's a great deal of non-Godzilla films from the Toho Studios, and I wanted to know if anyone recommends any certain ones, and if you doodily-do, please state why you recommend it, or if you feel that there's any films you should avoid.

And if you have any questions about a certain film, like whether or not it's any good, feel free to ask.

It's basically about a group of psychics fighting crime. I thought the characters were pretty good.

Iron Finger (AKA 100 Shot, 100 Killed) is a fun James Bond-esque comedic spy film starring Akira Takarada, Mie Hama, and Akihiko Hirata. It's very entertaining and has a few hilarious moments, I highly recommend it. I think the only way you can watch this movie is on Hulu Plus from Criterion.

Seven Samurai is an epic classic. Get the english subtitled version.

It's a Shatdiddlydaddleratner fine movie. I think it's Ishiro Honda's third-best movie, behind the Mothra and the original Godzilla. It's very well-made and a cynical exploration of the human condition. You should definitely check it out.

I honestly find Matango to be the best of all of Honda's work.

Matango is a disturbing, yet satisfying, film. It has good atmosphere, and the acting is some of the best I've seen in a Toho film. I reccomend it, and maybe have a pizza with mushrooms while you see it.

I'd recommend The H-Man because it is a pretty Shatdiddlydaddleratner good 50's scifi film.

It's an old one, but one i just saw. Latitude Zero. It's cheesy, but it's cheesy in a good way. Like a cross between 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the Island of Doctor Moreau (sp), and the Wizard of Oz. I think it's from the early 60's, but it was actually done in English and a pretty good flick overall.
