They waste all this time, resources, and lives to kill "Godzilla", only to pay the price as Godzilla Earth awakens to curbstomps everything. Felt right at home with the anti-war themes of some of the Showa Godzilla entries.

Especially with the end and the nuclear bomb symbolism.

Most likely that’s never going to happen. The films are tied to Netflix. Honestly wouldn’t it be cheaper to just get a month of Netflix then get some expensive overpriced Blu-ray?


Some of us don't have interest in purchasing a Netflix subscription for various reasons. Thankfully, there's a way to find them online that every anime fan knows of, so I would just get them from there, both the dubs and subs are available.

Personally, I just want to have them physically on the shelf next to all my other Godzilla films like the collector I am. I'd gladly pay for them, but people seem to loathe physical media nowadays.

Meh 7 dollars for a month subscription isn't the worst thing in the world, a blu ray of all 3 would end up running you $40+ anyway.

Physical Media over Digital all day though.

I just think it’s a tad ridiculous for people to complain about not seeing the anime films for financial reasons, and then say they’d shell out substantially more money for a Blu-ray that most likely won’t exist. I get if you have no interest in seeing the films, and I also don’t want to shame anyone who doesn’t have a lot of extra spending money, but don’t act like 7$ is a crazy amount to see the anime trilogy and ton of other stuff on Netflix.

And really, if money is that big of an issue, hey there’s always “other methods”.

What I’m trying to say is I think it’s a little crazy to say you’re waiting to see the anime trilogy because it’s not on physical media.

Everybody knows someone with Netflix. If you don’t wanna pay for your own subscription ask a friend or family member if you can use theirs to watch three Godzilla movies. That’s what I did.

I have Netflix and watched Planet of the Monsters some time ago, but I did not get around to watching City on the Edge of Battle or The Planet Eater until today. After finishing Planet of the Monsters and I didn't say "I can't wait until I can see the next one." Now having watched the trilogy, I think Planet of the Monsters was the best of the bunch. City on the Edge of Battle and The Planet Eater are a pair of talk-fests with endless attempts at "profundity speeches" that your average 12-year old could see through.
Spoiler:
There isn't a lot of action in either film, especially compared to the 1st film. Godzilla just gets pounded on by the Vultures and the City in the 2nd film and gets sucked dry by Interdimensional Ghidorah in the 3rd film.


I think that belief was too strained in the motivations of the two alien races, the Exif and the Bilusaludo. The Exif are doomsday worshippers, it's surprising they haven't sacrificed themselves to Ghidorah long before now. The Bilusaludo seem all too willing to embrace the nanometal, even though its continued spread will kill the planet they want to colonize. They reminded me of Elves and Dwarves from Tolkien, so I cannot give the filmmakers credit for any originality.

Spoiler:
One particular low point includes the "Mechagodzilla City". When you utter Mechagodzilla in a Godzilla film, I expect to see Mechagodzilla, not some metal city with create-your-own defense scheme. As the nanometal could be worked into any shape, why not work it into a new Mechagodzilla? But the final end resolution is more ridiculous. Apparently all that's needed to maintain Ghidorah's impermeability is a small rock talisman. Yet it takes Haruo ages to gather the will to break it and Metphies doesn't even put up a fight.
