I liked it. Hopefully they put all of the teaser trailers on this release. I was actually in the one at times square when G knocks down the New Year's Eve ball into the crowd. Fun times.

Darn, too bad Sony doesn't own Classic Media anymore and we can't get those wowie cleaned-up 60's-Toho restorations on Blu--But wait, doesn't Genius now own the company?

(And I've already mentioned the "US Godzilla has the world's shortest fight against JP Godzilla in 'Final Wars'" joke on the forum, so look it up there:
"I knew that tuna-eating lizard was worthless!")

I loved this movie. This is being released in Australia on 11/14 and I'm pretty darn sure Sony releases
are region free here in Australia so if
you want it before March you can order it through Ezydvd. They ship international and our dollar is
worth less than the U.S dollar so it will work out same price for you guys.

I sent this to the administrators a week ago I guess it being in Australia it wasn't classified as news
worthy.

May the Blu be with you...

(Why are we still hearing from old-Godzilla fans getting excited about the Dean Devlin mess, when that was years ago and we should all know better by now?
It's beginning to sound like that famous-last-words SNL host sketch, with Matthew Broderick being bothered by two old-Godzilla "fans" excited about the movie coming out...Oh, if we had only known, back then. -_- )

Between this movie, Saving Private Ryan and the street shoot out in Heat...they are the ones I used
to show off my surround sound system.

Godzilla walking through my living room, tanks roaring through the living room and bullets whizzing
by my head during the D-Day landing...it don't get better than that.

GO-GO-GODZILLA IS RIGHT!

Bring on Saving and Heat!!!

Am i the only person who thinks this is a total waste of time??!! An absolutely cr*p film that boasted good effects for the time, which will now no doubt look awfull on Blu Ray.
When will these guys finally look at the back catalogues the studios have available and start releasing some quality titles?
i also went to see Rob Zombies Halloween last night. Why Can't MGM put a release on that?
The film would look excellent on Blu ray.
I dont mean to moan but it does frustrate me that there are so many films at sony/fox/mgm's disposal, and there is a real lack of quality titles.

kubrick, the market is so small right now they they need to carefully look at what titles sold on dvd, what the demographic was like at the time of release compared to what it is today, what it will cost to put it out, and which need more time and care (which translates into money). Every film released on BD is a plus because for every person that doesn't like the film, there is usually someone else that does. Then for the next release it will probably be a film you like while someone else will think it is a pointless release.

In short, the more films released, the better.

LynxFX., completely understand what your saying and appreciate your input. My main issue is that i struggle to find that many releases that appeal to me. Also being situated in the UK, we are many weeks/months behind release date wise. The only major benefit of HD DVD was that the discs were region free. I used to own a HD but sold it in favour of Blu Ray. And fair enough this week i have had an American copy of the original Halloween shipped, which i must say looks incredible. However, the european market is slower than most for Blu Ray. Ps3 has helped alot but as you say the market is still small and growing. Maybe i have adopted HD to early? I guess i just look forward to when blu is the industry standard in a few years time, and won't have to mess about wondering if a film i like will be released because of which studio owns the rights.

but yep as you said, the more films released, the better.

Ah, didn't know you were in the UK. That does make it a little more tricky as you guys are probably a little lighter on the content side so far. Hopefully this holiday season puts a fire under the studios and the public and everyone can get the titles they want.
