    I think we should be glad that CM picked up Godzilla Raids Again and Ghidorah, otherwise we wouldn't have DVDs of those either!
    I'm really surprised Dimension hasn't released a DVD (bare bones even) of Godzilla Vs Biollante.

    Yup! When I picked up the ADV version of Destroy All Monsters, the first thing I noticed was how bland the characters' voices were. I felt ripped off!

    You notice it right away at the start of the film. I liked the narrator's slightly deeper tone in AIP version, while the international version apparently used a reject from a "how to" instructional film.

    sadly these films are super cult at this point, as most people seem not to care about them anymore. It's a damn shame, as I love these films. I hate having to go to fan sub bootleg DVDs just to complete my collection, but I really do not have much of a choice. I always support all high quality offical releases.

    I'm eager to pick these up. I've yet to see Rodan, that I can remember.

    Where's Mothra?

    I notice that none of her films have gotten proper releases.

    They're making up for that with the inclusion of a new 68-minute documentary.

    Correct; Frankenstein Conquers the World was originally a UPA release but has been issued on DVD by MB.

    Battle in Outer Space, The H-Man, Mothra, and Rebirth of Mothra III are being prepped by Sony for a 2009 release.

    As always, more info on all this stuff can be found on my site. Just click the sig!

    Zillamon, your site is great. I usually check it out at least once a week.

    Agree. I've never seen both movies look so good. This disk is worth every penny. It's also great to see both movies in their original form and not dubbed. Good stuff! :banana:
