Well, if these come with the Japanese versions with English dubs and the correct ARs, I'll double dip.

I know the original Blu-ray of Gojira, not the Criterion, was reported to have very poor image quality.  I would love to upgrade on these other monster titles, but I will need to know the picture quality is not an issue on these new releases do not suffer from the same issues.

 

The release in question is at the following link:

http://www.amazon.co...=gojira blu ray


Paramount, please release DRAGONSLAYER on Blu-ray

Why buy this when criterion has a better version?


I recently watched all 485 Best pictures (plus about 10 others films) in 365 days! www.oscarmovs.com

Criterion will likely not be releasing these other Godzilla titles.

Agreed, of course, that the Criterion of the original Gojira is great.

 

Classic Media released the first Blu-ray of Gojira long before Criterion released it, and the Blu-ray was reported to have very poor picture quality.

 

These other Godzilla films are not being released by Criterion.  Amazon says the studio is Section 23.

I have no idea what their reputation or history is in terms of their Blu-ray products.

:P Universal - Sony - and Studio 23, with all these recent announcements, you would think that a new IMAX 3D Film was being released this year, or something like that, :P

Section 23 is one of the remaining comeback splinter divisions of ADV Films, which used to be the best label around for anime titles.  ADV even dabbled in a few rare live-action horror/kaiju titles, which were pretty good, IIRC, for the early days of DVD.

As for their reputation on Blu-ray, can't say, sorry.

 

And as Mark points out, Gojira was a Rialto restoration and owned by Criterion, the other 60's up through "Godzilla's Revenge" are all owned by Classic Media, wherever they are now.  (Dreamworks?)

and for the original Classic Media releases ( Toho Master Collection)  were done really well, yes its been a few years, and Toho has released these titles in Japan on blu, so it is Region A but I don't think the Japanese releases has any subtitles or the US cuts of the films, and the imports are not in a price range that I am willing to deal with.

 

Maybe, just prior to this new movie someone at DreamWorks will get the idea that maybe they need to play catch-up, and make an announcement soon. :D

 

And while not the same big guy, but more like a big flying turtle, curious to see next months release of Gamera Vol 1 & Vol 2, which covers the Showa Period, from Mill Creek / Kadokawa Pictures, this has already been released in Japan, so I am hoping that all the heavy lifting was done, like when they get there hands on a Sony title. But compared to what the import cost, hey I'm good for less that $20 for 4 movies, only issue is it's all on one disc  per set.
