This just in, this just in! Monster Island Resort gets a special visit from Peter H. Brothers. His book Mushroom Clouds and Mushroom Men: The Fantastic Cinema of Ishiro Honda has finally given the English-speaking world a volume dedicated to Ishiro Honda, the man behind such fantastic films as Matango, Gorath, Mothra, and, of course, the magnum opus–1954′s original Gojira.
I had the pleasure of catching Mr. Brothers’s presentation on Ishiro Honda at this past weekend’s Monsterpalooza Convention before our interview. He has done his homework and has a lot to say about Honda, Japanese cinema, science fiction, and more. Our conversation was so enriching, in fact, that I have decided to present it to you in two parts. There is a lot of great stuff here to take in! Even so, it doesn’t cover all the wonderful information about Ishiro Honda the man that Brothers includes in his book. It’s well worth the order from Amazon or for your e-reader! Now, why delay any further? Enjoy!
