Although I would enjoy some friends over, they work tonight til closing, so this looks like a personal monster movie night then. Either way works for me lol

Well its about to kick off, I've never seen Rodan or Mothra, so I look forward to them. And though I've seen the Japanese Version of Gojira, seeing it being played for me on TV, and on a channel that doesn't air commercials during the running of a film. Then count me in for a monster movie night. I got two friends with me and we are currently waiting for things to begin.

Yeah, Robert Osbourne's Japanese could use a bit of work.

The print and subs appears to be the Classic Media ones, still awesome to see Godzilla subbed for the first time on TV. :)

Got to love the pacing of the Japanese Version, things just seem to flow smoothly and much more quickly.

Mmm...Although in the American Version I don't like Emiko very much. But in the Japanese Version, I can tolerate her somewhat.

I think I went to kaiju heaven, I'm still in awe that they're showing Rodan in Japanese, last time, it was in English! Not only this marks the first time they've Godzilla in Japanese on TV but now Rodan! :)

I think most will be satisfied that it isn't the "Ghastly yellow" version, although I think that only relates to the American version.

Yeah, it's better that way.

Whoever is writing Osbourne's dialogues for these movies should be fired! He said the killer bugs from the mine TURN INTO the Rodans!!! :dizzy:

What's that? What is this "ghastly yellow version" of Rodan that your talking about? Does it look that bad compared to the one shown currently right now?

The U.S. print looks really bad, really bad discoloring throughout, the Japanese print that's playing now is so far the best looking version of Rodan.

I did not know that, well, since its my first time seeing this then I'm glad that TCM managed to grab a much better presentable version. And since its the Japanese version, then surely it'll be able to run as smoothly as Gojira with no edits or cuts.

That's cuz' this is the re-mastered Classic Media print from the Toho vaults.
