Composer Filmography


Reijiro Koroku has led a very diverse life as a composer. His work on film started in 1979, but his real break came five years later when he was selected to score the first movie in the new Heisei Godzilla series, The Return of Godzilla (1984), to which he is still best remembered for today. Koroku would follow this up with several other Toho ventures, including the direct-to-video movie Detective Story (1992). Outside of Toho films, he has worked on video games, and television shows, giving the composer an interesting portfolio of work that spreads across numerous genres and several mediums. He has also won the Asia Pacific International Film Festival Best Music Award.
