That just bugs me cause it's gonna skreeonk up my display once I get a proper shelf.


Not to mention all those gaps that are just in the Classic Media set...

And god knows how long it'll be before those films get updated to blu-ray.

Oh gosh, yes- what I wouldn't give for a legit Son of Godzilla in high-def! Much less all the others...

There's always the Criterion Collection's upcoming releases.

When they're going to show up, however (and if ever), is anyone's guess.

Oh well, one can only hope.

I'm getting to that point. I've accepted we'll probably never get the Japanese version of King Kong vs. Godzilla over here, and ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

In a month or so, there may be a fan-edit solution to address that...

You could just have each film in their own case. There's a custom cover set:

I might have a completed fan-edit of the Japanese Kong (and buying that blu-ray was NOT cheap), with updated subtitles, merged with the English version of the submarine scene and ending fight climax, color-corrected (not as good as the 4k master; the transfer wouldn't support it), that I just need to proof-check before putting online in hopefully a month or so... ;)

I've only ever seen the American cut of the film, so I desperately want to see the Japanese version.

Yeah, sorry for the delay. That is actually finished, and all ready to post, I just keep meaning take some screenshots so I can make one of those nice-looking posts like a lot of the fan edits already have... and life has gotten crazy. So I haven't had the chance to take them or compose that post. But I'll get around to that very soon. :)

I got the Triple Feature DVD of Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, Godzilla vs. Mothra '92, and GMK at work today via my final break for $9.99. 3 movies for the price of one. It was well worth it.
