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.

I heard that GMK was excellent.

Posted Image Nice, I can now replace my HK R3 discs. Anamorphic and 5.1!

GMK was indeed excellent. GXM was a bit weak, but any Goji is OK with me. Posted Image

Yes they are. Sci-fi just showed one of them recently. Can't recall which one though.

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. Posted Image

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.

I'd be interested in this as well.

I'm pretty sure that the only option right now is the R2 Japanese DVD which unfortunately has no English subs.

Yeah, the R2 has no English at all ( yet I still bought it... I must be nuts ). If you can understand Spanish then there's a Region 2 edition available from Spain with OL and Spanish subs.
There are dubious English subtitled copies floating around various online auction sites.

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.

I still don't understand why they'll allow the OSL version w/subs in Spain, but not in the US or UK??
