I don't think I'll be covering that as it's far too grand a scope for me to tackle.



Understandable. I'm willing to help based on my collection/what I know as well. Good info to gather for public record + informational purposes.

I think it’s worth it if the show is only available on that format...like the aforementioned Amazing Colossal Man.
"Monsters are tragic beings. They are born too tall, too strong, too heavy. They are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy. They do not attack people because they want to, but because of their size and strength, mankind has no other choice but to defend himself. After several stories such as this, people end up having a kind of affection for the monsters. They end up caring about them." - Ishiro Honda

Which reminds me, I have an old VHS copy of Attack of the Super Monsters. Perhaps the best giant monster of all time! Should really be on this list...

I think that first one is a direct copy/paste of the Wikipedia list.

I’ve been tackling most of the Sci-Fi original movies, gonna try to finish that soon and then start looking into films without DVD/BR releases and maybe some more public domain films.

Added in 9 hours 27 minutes 17 seconds:
Recent information has come to light that Mill Creek’s Gamera Blu-Rays and the Legacy Collection DVD are slowly phasing into OOP status.

If you’ve been on the fence about picking these up, now would be a great time to grab them while they’re still cheap.

Man, these types of releases go OOP so incredibly fast it seems. Maybe not.

Added in 21 hours 8 minutes :
Here is a handy resource site for Kaiju and Tokusatsu releases. The pain is you have to keep checking the site as there's no Twitter or anything to follow.

Got a few updates for you. The Black Scorpion and The Valley of Gwangi are both on Warner Archive now (and the first one was released in 1957, not 1958), the Warner Archive version of The Last Dinosaur is the complete and unedited one, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad single-disc DVD is OOP, you forgot The People that Time Forgot (which is, of course, OOP) and I think you also forgot Supergator (2007), which I think was on DVD but is now OOP.

Updated with Black Scorpion and Last Dinosaur. Gwangi was already on there. Sinbad is not out of print, it's still available from Amazon, which I mentioned in the first post is what this list is based off of. Added People that Time Forgot (which isn't OOP on Blu-Ray), and Supergator was never released on R1 DVD or Blu-Ray.

in the UK, a company called indicator/Powerhouse films are putting out really nice Blu-ray box sets of Ray Harryhausen films owned by Sony. so far there are three sets, the first being all the Sinbad movies ( I own that one and it's beautifully) the second one has IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA, 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH and THE 3 WORLDS OF GULLIVER. the third has MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS and FIRST MEN IN THE MOON.

There's a Blu-ray of MIGHTY PEKING MAN here as well, from 88 films and they are putting SUPER INFRAMAN out on Blu-ray in April.
