He said he wishes for something like that to happen. Probably for the reasons you stated.

I will definitely watch this. I've always wanted to see Mothra and H-Man. Now I get my chance.

I can't stress this enough. Everyone should own this. It's under $12.

I'd rather watch on TV.

Oh well. You'll be watching them in fullscreen, and in English. Something to keep in mind.

I rarely watch my Classic Media DVD's in Japanese. I really could care less about fullscreen too.

That's cool. If you don't care that you're missing a ton of the picture, then all the power to you man.

Who knows. Maybe TCM will surprise us, and actually screen the restored Sony versions. They did play the Sony (international) version of SON OF GODZILLA a couple of years ago, which was pretty surprising.

I do know that one TCM's recent showings of THE H-MAN was still same old video master, and that wasn't even that long ago either.

Actually, i wouldn't be surprised if TCM shows the Japanese version of all four movies. They're most certainly showing the Japanese version of Godzilla, so I don't think it's too far of a stretch to say they'll be showing the other ones too. They seem to want to honor Honda in the proper way, which would be by showing the films the way Honda intended them to be seen: In his language.

I doubt they'll all be the Japanese versions, but we'll see. (Like I said earlier) They might just surprise us. Who knows.

Does anyone else view the summer as the time for monster movies? I mean, I watch monsters all year long, but I really kick it up in June/July, my favorite time of year. I even write my annual Godzilla script then. It's just so awesome, spending time with my favorite things in the world, at my favorite time, usually with some of my favorite people.

Ah, the memories...Summertime, and the livin's easy...

Having so much trouble wrapping my brain around this.


Yeah, I mean, I guess some people just don't care about seeing movies they way they weren't meant to be seen. And I'm not even just talking about in their original language; fullscreen is skreeonking terrible.

I always thought the least people in this fandom wanted was original language in OAR with subtitles.

Is everybody ready? :g2k:

I intend to watch Gojira, Rodan, and the H-Man. BTW, Dish Network lists Rodan as rated R. :lol:

Oh, and The Valley of Gwangi will be running too.

I can't wait for this airing/ marathon, though people watching it, be sure to record the intros and outros with Robert Osborne (if he's going to host them), for historical reasons of course, I myself am going to v-blog the event to remember it. :)

I have Godzilla/Gojira & Rodan on DVD already. Don't have Mothra or H-Man, & haven't seen them in a while, so I'll probably tune in. Never seen "Hausu", so I'll check it out.
