You might’ve noticed I’m an extreme music fan, but I like a healthy dose of hyper-violence and weirdness with my movies too. If it’s brutal, bizarre, or both, I’m probably gonna watch the shit out of it (or already have). Occasionally I’ll recommend some of the better flicks here. This first one falls squarely into the bizarre category.
In Big Man Japan, the Japanese are constantly under attack from mutant, radioactive monsters. Since WWII, the Ministry of Monster Prevention has employed a long line of men who transform into giant warriors and defend against them. The titular character is the latest, but he’s a mediocre fighter and not well loved by the populace. He becomes depressed and apathetic. We become entertained. It’s overlong and gets bogged down in a couple of spots, but it’s so damned colorful and strange you’ll hardly notice.
