Someone at TCM has evidently been reading Wikipedia's entry for the Japanese New Wave, as that provides the prime time/overnight theme for October 26.

One of these is a Toho-distributed film, The Face of Another, and of all the films being shown that night, this is the one that would appeal most to Godzilla fans. Criterion writes, "A staggering work of existential science fiction, The Face of Another dissects identity with the sure hand of a surgeon. Okuyama (Yojimbo's Tatsuya Nakadai), after being burned and disfigured in an industrial accident and estranged from his family and friends, agrees to his psychiatrist's radical experiment: a face transplant, created from the mold of a stranger. As Okuyama is thus further alienated from the world around him, he finds himself giving in to his darker temptations. With unforgettable imagery, Teshigahara's film explores both the limits and freedom in acquiring a new persona, and questions the notion of individuality itself."

Full night's schedule:

8:00 Crazed Fruit (1956)
9:45 One Way Ticket to Love (1960)
11:15 The Weird Lovemakers (1960) -- This is how it's scheduled, but it's more familiarly known as The Warped Ones. "Lovemakers" is the title of the dubbed version released on the sexploitation circuit.
12:45 The Sun's Burial (1960)
2:30 The Insect Woman (1963)
4:45 The Face of Another (1966)

Starting Wednesday 11/3 early in the AM till the end of Thursday 11/4 Shout Factory TV is running All the Godzilla Showa films, minus KKVG, plus Rodan and WoTG. This is the Shout Factory TV Channel not the Pluto TV version. I have it as part of my Sling TV package, I'm guessing it is also running on other streaming TV bundles and some cable packages.

Here's the trailer from the TokuSHOUTsu YouTube page:



Here are links to all of the streamable films on the Shout Factory TV website. All of the Japanese versions are available with English subtitles, along with Godzilla, King of the Monsters! and all of the international English dubs that were included on Criterion's 2019 BRD set, while both cuts of King Kong vs. Godzilla are absent. They all open with the Janus Films logo.
The website Nerdist has an article about it too:
TokuSHOUTsu to Host Friday Night GODZILLA Marathons
Godzilla vs. TokuSHOUTsu: Friday Night Kaiju Lineup

11/5/21
Godzilla, The Uncut Japanese Original (Gojira) (1954)
Rodan (1956)
Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964)
Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster (1964)

11/12/21
The War Of Gargantuas (1966)
Invasion Of Astro-Monster (1965)
Godzilla vs. Hedorah (1971)
Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973)

11/19/21
Ebirah, Horror Of The Deep (1966)
Son Of Godzilla (1967)
Destroy All Monsters (1968)
All Monsters Attack (1969)

11/26/21
Godzilla, King of The Monsters! (1956)
Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972)
Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974)
Terror Of Mechagodzilla (1975)

Don’t worry if you can’t make the marathons (hey, everybody has their own schedules, right?). All 17 of the movies are also available on-demand to watch any time you want via ShoutFactoryTV.com or on the Shout Factory apps. Do you mostly watch stuff on Tubi? Well you can find them there too.

Interestingly, what Tubi now has available to stream is somewhat different.....

King Kong vs. Godzilla (rerun) on Svengoolie, Nov. 20 on MeTV.

StreamOfKaijuness wrote: Mon Nov 01, 2021 6:22 pm Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965) - international English-dubbed version

To clarify (or maybe muddy the waters), although Criterion apparently refers to this as Toho's "international version," it's actually the U.S.-dubbed audio edited to fit the full-length Japanese version. The Japanese dialogue that was not dubbed to English in 1966 remains here undubbed; those few scenes were originally cut from the American release (and all its subsequent versions). One line of Nick Adams' dialogue that went unused in the American release was restored here (because in the Japanese release his entire performance was dubbed).

Toho might have had a more traditional export version dubbed in English in the '60s, but if it existed, it's never surfaced anywhere (at least not that anyone can ascertain in 2021). Since the early 1980s, at least, Toho has offered this version for export to distributors overseas.

But essentially it's the U.S. version conformed long-after-the-fact to the original Japanese cut.

I just found out by turning it on, otherwise I would have said it earlier, but Svengoolie on MeTV is playing the American version of King Kong vs. Godzilla.

Edit: Sorry, I didn’t see the above post!

12 PM Samurai II: Duel at Ichioji Temple (1955)
2 PM Samurai III: Duel at Ganryu Island (1956)

The three non-Toho films are Scandal (1950; 6 AM), Zatoichi Meets Yojimbo (1970; 6 PM), and Rashomon (1950; 8 PM).

I’m not sure if there’s a thread for local screenings, but the Music Box Theater In Chicago is playing Yokai Monsters: Spook Warfare on the 23rd of October. (Not a Toho movie, but Showa era Tokusatsu, so related.)

I cant find a list of all 17 films. Where can I find it?

From the partial list of films I see, it looks like they're showing most (if not all?) of the movies Media Blasters had licensed in the mid 2000s.

I don't think they've all been announced yet.

Added in 24 minutes 37 seconds:
Well they already have Gojira/King of the Monsters, Godzilla's Revenge, Ghidrah, Destroy All Monsters, Monster Zero, Mothra vs Godzilla, Rodan, Terror of Mechagodzilla, and War of the Gargantuas. If you count Gojira and King of the Monsters as two separate titles that totals 17 with the new ones announced in that article.

If they're licensing all the movies that Media Blasters had, I really hope another set of all Honda's other Toho sci fi films shows up sooner or later. They would just need to talk to Sony and Universal for their films, but that's certainly doable. And the cherry on top would be if, at the very least, they license Gorath from Toho.

Once more, The Human Vapor gets the shaft. It'd be especially fitting too, as aside from it being a legitimately excellent film, it would fit with the vague Halloween-theme.

These additions are obviously good news for those who have not seen the movies and exposing new viewers to them. It's certainly possible Matango, Atragon, Dogora and Space Amoeba will include the international dubs as an option, but the remaining films are almost certainly cursed with being Japanese only.

The only reason I didn't mention Vapor is that the MB films, the three Sony films, KKE, Gorath and the two other films Criterion has always had bring the film total to 15, the same amount as the Godzilla set.

Rodan
The Mysterians
Varan, the Unbelievable
The H-Man
Battle in Outer Space
Mothra
Gorath
Matango
Atragon
Dogora the Space Monster
Frankenstein Conquers the World
War of the Gargantuas
King Kong Escapes
Latitude Zero
Space Amoeba

Wow! The best evidence yet that they're shoring up the entire Toho genre library! I say let 'em do it: we know how weird and difficult Toho is to deal with, and Criterion's longstanding relationship with them makes them best suited to the process which woukd likely break a smaller/newer distributor.

This would be incredible. I would dream in a prefect world that we got the Human Vapor and Half-Human in this set as well. Maybe even get Mirrorman short film as a bonus feature. I would love for them to get Zone Fighter down the road too but I know all those are more likely than Half-Human.
