"If you have the Simitar DVDs, hold on to them for dear life. The Classic Media versions are much inferior, presented in Pan and Scan with no extras. "
What a waste of money. anyone know if 1957 RODAN is available else where

Yes it is, in a killer Japanese DVD, it has a re-mastered transfer and is 100% uncut and in Japanese (no crappy dubbing!) but it has no english subtitles :(

Damnit. I've been patiently waiting for good releases of these classics. Godzilla has been a huge part of my film influence since I was 4 yrs. old, so this pisses me off to no end. I may have to try and order the Simitar discs or at least the Jap. versions, just as long as I can get them uncut and in their OAR, I'll be OK.

The Japanese DVDs are the only uncut version perfect versions, but they are 100% in Japanese with no subtitles to speak of, and they are pretty pricey imports and your DVD Player must be able to play them.

I will try to find some on-line reviews of them so that you know what to expect from them.

Remember these are Region 2 code discs with no English subtitles or dubbing and, naturally, the text is almost all written in Japanese!

Damn and my high school did not offer Japanese for a language

there are Hong Kong R3 dvds of Godzilla 2k and Godzilla X Megaguirus that have english subtitles. you can pick up both for less than $10 each. and they are legit titles, not bootlegs (there are bootleg dvds of other G films released by fans that include the uncut versions plus burnt in english subs)

"GODZILLA VS. MOTHRA is the same print as the Paramount VHS release, which preceded the Simitar DVD. This is the worst example of Pan and Scan that was ever presented on video and it is recaptured in all its glory here."


No wonder the whole box set is only $24.95 at Wal-Mart...
