"I need only mention in passing that there is a curious reappearance of the Catfish tradition in the popular Godzilla  cycle of films which arose after the nuclear internal linkchaos unleashed upon internal linkJapan.  In fact, the symbolic details in the internal linkevolution of Godzilla filmic poplore parallel in a quite surprising way the traditional Japanese and Chinese mythological and folkloric themes of combat with an ambivalent chaos creature (some of the films, like _Mothra_, directly recalling the ancient motifs of the cosmic egg/gourd/cocoon) that is usually tamed,, after the failure of the civilizational order, through the special and indirect agency of children."

math rock entity Rodan

Rodan - Rusy 12inch on Quarterstick (1994)

_Rodan_ (1956) is a internal linkscience fiction movie made at Toho Studios in internal linkJapan. It is one of a series of "giant monster" movies that found an audience outside of Japan (especially in America). The first "giant monster" movies of the 1950s, called kaiju, were filmed as serious horror and adventure stories, before the genre internal linkdevolved to the level of internal link"kiddie" entertainment in the 1960s and 1970s.

Rodan follows in the footsteps of other Japanese monster movies, such as Godzilla, which involve a giant monster being awoken from an ancient hibernation by human beings. In this story, miners digging far into the earth stumble across a clutch of giant internal linkcaterpillar-like insects, which viciously attack several of the miners and prompt a government investigation into the matter. The giant bugs turn out to be little more than food for two gigantic internal linkflying beasts (similar to the internal linkpteradactyl, except they are far bigger and far more powerful), who hatch from giant eggs and proceed to terrorize the entire world.

Rodan is notable for its action scenes, which are filmed surprisingly well and which still excite audiences today. Unlike most of the Toho monster movies, which featured "action" scenes consisting of roaring monsters lumbering across the landscape at a stupefyingly slow pace, the battle scenes and monster rampage in Rodan are thrilling, exciting, and fast-paced; it is much easier for the audience to suspend disbelief and accept the typically mediocre special effects here. The emphasis on action, thrills, and willingness to scare the audience makes Rodan one of the superior films in the kaiju series.
