Sixty-five years ago, in 1954, the world of pop culture would change forever when a kaiju named as a portmanteau of the Japanese words “gorilla” and “whale” would emerge from the water for the first time. We are, of course, talking about Godzilla and his eponymous first movie. In the two decades that followed the release of the original there would be an additional 14 sequels released. The experts at Criterion had bundled all fifteen films from the era together in a new box set, the first of its kind, dubbed Godzilla: The Showa-Era Films, 1954–1975. The collection also includes an exclusive art book, an impressive collection of bonus features loaded on the Blu-ray discs and all new covers from Chris Wisnia. From Godzilla in 1954 all the way to Terror of Mechagodzilla in 1975 and the thirteen films that came between, Godzilla: The Showa-Era Films, 1954–1975 covers all the massive monster protector’s greatest hits. Godzilla: The Showa-Era Films, 1954–1975 will be released Oct 29, 2019.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
