    The DVDFile today mentions the release of two Godzilla movies:

    "Rounding out Columbia's January 6th lineup are two classic ToHo titles, Godzilla Vs. Megaguirus and Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidora: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack. Each is presented in new 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfers with remixed Japanese and English 5.1 Dolby soundtracks. Extras include only bonus trailers. Retail will also be set at $24.95 each."

    They call them classics, but I believe these are the two done after Godzilla 2000!!

    I hope this wasn't posted before, the search wouldn't work.

    Once again Toho has redefined Godzilla. I've been an avid Godzilla fan for over 30 years, and this latest incarnation (post Heisei) is passable...at best. GMK attempts to pass Baragon, Mothra and Ghidrah off as Protector Deities representing earth, air, and sea, respectively.

    At least G vs. Megaguiras had an original storyline, and was more entertaining, imho.

    I also cringe to think how Columbia will handle the dubbing...it WILL be dubbed, right? No original language subtitled in English? Too bad. [​IMG]

    I sincerely hope that the Japanese 5.1 track will stay on the disc. I'll toss out my Region 3 discs if they do.

    MEGAGUIRUS is fun; GMK is awesome.

    GMK is the best Godzilla flick in a long time. 20 or 30 years. You can see it's tokyo miniature on display when the bride flys into tokyo in Kill Bill vol. 1.

    I, too, own these on R3 discs, and will replace them when the new ones are available.

    Speaking of original Japanese dialogue - Is it possible to get the original Japanese Godzilla (sans Raymond Burr)? With subtitles? I've always wanted to see it.

    If they keep putting on original Japanese tracks, I might start buying Godzilla movies.

    GMK is the best godzilla movie in a while. It was directed by the same guy that did updated versions of Gamera. If you get a chance pick up Gamera 1,2,3 they are all great. Finally getting Godzilla in OAR , subbed and 5.1. I got a pretty nice subbed 1954 Godzilla on dvd. PM me for info.
