June 16th, 2013: Son of Godzilla

Son of Godzilla

Cast and Crew: Jun Fukuda (Director); Shin’ichi Sekizawa (Screenplay); Tomoyuki Tanaka (Producer); Masaru Sato (Score); Eiji Tsuburaya (Effects); Tadao Takashima, Akiro Kubo, Akihiko Hirata, Kenji Sahara

What It’s About: A team of scientists experimenting with weather control on a remote island accidentally embiggen the mantis and spider population. Godzilla arrives just in time to protect a newly hatched…thing…that may or may not be his son. Can the team survive long enough to escape the island?

Why Watch it Today?: Today is Father’s Day, and, while Godzilla’s paternity and parenting skills are dubious at best, they were apparently good enough for the Fatherhood Initiative to feature them in a PSA.

Other Choices: We previously featured terrible fathers (Chinatown) and a difficult but poignant father/son relationship (Fallen Angels).
