Episode 53: Space Amoeba (1970) (Japanese Colonialism in Oceania)

It’s the last Toho classic kaiju movie, and there’s so much to like! The engaging cinematography and Kenji Sahara’s performance as Obata are two of the best things. And there aren’t any annoying squeaky-voiced little kids either! The subtle symbolism regarding Chinese Communism in the story and the kaiju is fascinating. Celebrate the end of an era with me, as I elevate this overlooked yet fun kaiju entry.The related topic for this episode is Japanese Colonialism in Oceania.This episode is dedicated to Akira Kubo.I’d like to send a shout-out to our patrons Kyoei Toshi and Sean Stiff. Thank you for your support! I really appreciate it.MP3:http://kaijuvisionradioepisodes.s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/53-space-amoeba-vw0j38cuwkaprut50.mp3Introduction: 0:00 – 2:22Part 1 – Film Description: 2:22 – 14:28Part 2 – Opinion and Analysis: 14:28 – 45:16Part 3 – Related Topic: 45:16 – 1:07:58Closing: 1:07:58 – End Host/Editor/Director/Scenic Videos: Brian ScherschelVideo Location: St. Mary’s River, Allen County, IndianaMusic: Audiophiliac (www.fiverr.com/audiophiliac)“Torii Gate” Banners: Kevin Geary (kevincgearydesign.com)Logos: Nanoparticles (www.fiverr.com/nanoparticles)Copyright Brian J.
