Ultra Manic

History lesson: if you liked Pacific Rim and its kaiju monsters, you would have loved the old tokusatsu TV shows. The original Godzilla films begat these awesome/silly Japanese superhero TV series, which then begat the Idris Elba blockbuster of 2013. But what are now $150 million budgets of computer generated imagery started as just a bunch of guys in rubber costumes (zippers plainly visible) knocking over miniature toy buildings.

The progenitor of these TV shows was Ultraman. In fact, some of the monsters Ultraman battled were simply reused costumes from Godzilla movies in a fresh coat of paint. And nobody cared because it was crazy stupid fun. That’s like watching Battlestar Galactica and seeing the Enterprise, but this time it’s blue. And you wouldn’t care because the new BSG is crazy stupid fun. BSG also entertains the notion that all of this has happened before and it will all happen again. You know, like reusing old Godzilla costumes. Whoa… mind blown.

So that’s what I plan to bring to you on this tour of Asia: crazy stupid fun. You’ll likely see my zipper, too, and it will be up. Possibly. If you’ve been to one of my shows before, please be the blue Enterprise or the pink Godzilla and come again.
