Updated: May 4, 2021

Tonight MG offers a strange double feature as we take a look at two very different films.First up: the little-remembered American prison-escape melodrama Runaway Train, starring Academy Award winner Jon Voight in his most colorful performance outside ofAnaconda; followed by an even bigger character - Toho Studios original kaiju in his building-stomping debut: 1954's horror masterpiece, Gojira- renamed (and recut) in the United States as'Godzilla, King of the Monsters!'What could these movies have in common? Akira Kurosawa, of course! Join us as we dig deep into how both countries faced their postwar anxieties through pop art!
