Goal, a modest 40.
* = first time viewing

April 30
01.00 Delinquent Girl Boss: Blossoming Night Dreams (1970)*
Several girls who were released from the same reform school work in the same bar and are trying to go straight. Trouble comes from a local yakuza boss who wants to buy the building the bar is in. Good movie, not too extreme with a little brief nudity but more underwear scenes, panty shots and the like, not to mention quite a few girl vs. girl fights. Lead Reiko Ooshida is very appealing with an energetic performance swinging between the joy of living and reform school toughness with some butt kicking in between. Good sound track includes a couple of songs. The first of four Delinquent Girl Boss movies. 6/10

May 01
02.00 The Sleepy Eyes of Death 1: The Chinese Jade (1963) (Sleepy Eyes of Death Collector's Set Vol. 1)
Two opposing forces court a powerful samurai who isn't interested in their differences. The first of twelve movies in this series. Raizo Ichikawa is very good as the young but extremely world weary lead. The action tends to be quick and without a lot of blood and the special Full Moon Cut move doesn't look all that impressive but the story overall was very interesting with just a hint of mysticism. 6/10

May 02
02.50 Johnny Socko and His Flying Robot
Ep. 1: Dracolon, The Great Sea Monster (1967) / Ep.2: Nucleon, The Magic Globe (1967)
Johnny accidentally gains control of an indestructible giant robot and with the help of UNICORN agent Jerry Mano uses it to fight against the evil Gargoyle Gang and the unsuspected extraterrestrial force behind it, Emperor Guillotine. Aired in Japan 1967 - 1968 and first came to the U.S. in 1969.

May 03
03.00 Getter Robo
Ep. 48: The Dinosaur Empire in Magma (1975)* / Ep. 49: Explosion! Falls Down! Dinosaur Empire! (1975)*
The Getter team finally locates the Dinosaur Empire in an artificial structure floating in a river of magma far beneath the surface. They manage to destroy the structure but the leaders escape. Exciting, only two episodes left in this series.
03.50 Johnny Socko and His Flying Robot
Ep. 3: Gargoyle Vine, A Space Plant (1967) / Ep. 4: Monster Ligon-Tyrex, A Strange Monster (1967)
Emperor Guillotine summons another ET, the very cool looking Dr. Botanus, to help conquer Earth. UNICORN must face a mobile plant and a monster created oil crisis!
04.50 Shinobi No Mono (1962)*
Ninja masters want Nobunaga Oda dead and young, talented ninja, Goemon Ishikawa, is manipulated into trying to assassinate him. According to the notes, a fairly realistic depiction of ninjas. An complex story with some surprises. Star Raizo Ichikawa is also very good in this movie and there is a well staged final battle. 7/10

May 04
4.75 Johnny Socko and His Flying Robot Ep. 5: The Gigantic Claw (1967)
5.25 Ultraman Ep. 33: The Forbidden World (1967)* / Ep. 34: Present From the Sky (1967)*
5.50 Kamen Rider V3 Ep. 16: The Missile-Carrying Gecko Mutant (1973)*
UNICORN must deal with a flying, giant mechanical hand, Ultraman and the Science Patrol have to cope with an alien that doesn't like to use physical violence and, in a lighthearted episode, a super-heavy monster. In a very exciting show, V3 fights the mutant mentioned in the title.
6.50 Tokyo Chorus (1931)* (Eclipse #10: Silent Ozu Three Family Comedies)
A family struggles after the husband loses his job. Genuinely funny at times but also with many bittersweet moments. The actors were all wonderful, but I thought Tokihiko Okada who played the father was especially good. He died only a few years after making this film. 7/10

May 05
07.50 The X From Outer Space (1967) (Eclipse #37: When Horror Came to Shochiku)
A spaceship trying to reach Mars returns to Earth with a spore that becomes an energy absorbing giant monster. A not very exciting kaiju movie. I think I enjoyed the outer space stuff in the first half more than the kaiju rampage, although I did like the look of Guilala (aka X). 5/10

May 06
08.50 Partners aka Aibou S:1 Ep. 1 (2002)* / S:1 Ep. 2 (2002)* Recorded from TV
Two misfit police detective, Sugishita (older, smarter) and Kameyama (brash) solve difficult crimes. A very popular TV show in Japan, it just finished it's twelfth season.

May 07
09.50 Delinquent Girl Boss: Worthless to Confess (1971) (The Pinky Violence Collection)
The fourth and last of the series has many of the same cast members, the same tone, and a basic plot similar to the first. Some of the characters are better developed and the story has more to it. Nice, outrageous finale. 7/10

May 08
10.00 Partners aka Aibou S:1 Ep. 3 (2002)* Recorded from TV
Sugishita and Kameyama search for the killer of a drug dealer. Sugishita is very observant and persistent but some of his tactics seem a little off the wall although successful.

May 09
10.50 Strategist Kanbe Ep. 8 (2014)* Recorded from TV
This year's Taiga drama, the year long historical drama aired in Japan by NHK, the Japanese public broadcast organization. The life of Kanbee Kuroda a strategist who worked with Hideyoshi Toyotomi to unify Japan.

May 10
11.00 Getter Robo Ep. 50: Goer! The Survivors Fight Back (1975)* / Ep. 51: The Day the Dinosaur Empire Is Destroyed (1975)*
The (many) remnants of the Dinosaur Empire launch a final massive attack on Japan. They are finally defeated but at great cost to the Getter team and a new menace waits in the wings!
11.25 Johnny Socko and His Flying Robot Ep. 6: Dragon, The Ninja Monster (1967)
11.50 Ultraman Ep. 35: The Monster Graveyard (1967)*
12.00 Kamen Rider V3 Ep. 17: The Devilspary is the Reaper's Weapon (1973)* / Ep. 18: V3, Beware the Evil Traitor! (1973)*
Giant Robo must stop a war and protect all the UNICORN leaders. In an off beat Ultraman we learn that monsters have feelings too. V3 battles the mutants Spray-Rat and Kusarigama-Beetle (a kusarigama is a traditional Japanese weapon consisting of a sickle with a metal chain attached) who are spreading a disease around Tokyo.
13.00 Strategist Kanbe Ep. 9: Kanbe Gets Tested (2014)* / Ep. 10: The Mouri's Arrival (2014)* Recorded from TV
Kanbe has to deal with the indecisiveness of his own lord and a massive invasion by the Mouri clan, sworn enemies of Nobunaga Oda.
13.50 Strategist Kanbe Ep. 11: A Life-Staking Banquet (2014)* TV
Kanbe tries to hold together the tenuous alliance in his home province of Harima while waiting for the aid promised by Oda.

May 11
14.50 Sleepy Eyes of Death 2: Sword of Adventure (1964)* (Sleepy Eyes of Death Collector's Set Vol. 1)
Kiyoshiro Nemuri starts protecting an old man on a whim and finds that he has offended on of the Shogun's children. More good intrigue. The Full Moon Cut is beginning to make more sense to me. 7/10
15.50 I Was Born, But ... (1933)* (Eclipse #10: Silent Ozu Three Family Comedies)
A family moves to the suburbs where the two sons have trouble adjusting to the neighborhood kids and who begin to realize their father is not as strong as they thought. Some wonderfully funny moments but also some touching scenes especially at the end. Watching this brought back feelings of my childhood and memories of my father. Also a very interesting look at life in a Tokyo suburb in the 1930's. 8/10
16.00 Partners aka Aibou S:1 Ep. 4 (2002)* Recorded from TV
The followup investigation of an apprehended panty thief leads the Special Missions team to suspect a coverup of an entirely different crime. Hints of a larger storyline and more info on Sugishita's past. I'm starting to like this show more than I have.

May 13
17.00 I Am Waiting (1957)* (Eclipse #17: Nikkatsu Noir)
An ex-boxer hooks up with a cabaret singer and through a series of coincidences finds out what happened to his missing brother. Well shot and interesting but you do have to ignore several very convenient plot points. 7/10

May 14
18.00 Rusty Knife (1958)* (Eclipse #17: Nikkatsu Noir)
An ex-con who has gone straight is asked by a DA to testify against a powerful gangster. The leads to murder, mayhem, and the exposure of a criminal mastermind. Features the two stars from I Am Waiting, Yujiro Ishihara and Mie Kitahara who appeared in many films together and were married in 1960. Starts a little slow but ends up more action packed that I Am Waiting, including a dump truck chase! 7/10

May 15
19.00 Criminal Woman: Killing Melody (1973)* (The Pinky Violence Collection)
A woman tries to get revenge on a yakuza boss, fails, and gets sent to prison. When she gets out, she tries again with the help of some former inmates. Stars Reiko Ike and Miki Sugimoto who made a bunch of these separately and together. More nudity, sex, and violence than in the Delinquent Girl Boss series. 6/10

May 17
20.00 Sleepy Eyes of Death 3: Full Circle Killing (1964)* (Sleepy Eyes of Death Collector's Set Vol. 1)
Kyoshiro gets involved with one of the Shogun's many bastard sons who, along with his mother, is plotting to become the heir. Good but it didn't grab me as much as the first two did. 6/10
21.00 Yokai Monsters 100 Monsters aka One Hundred Ghost Stories (1968)*
With the help of corrupt officials, a wealthy man plans to demolish a temple and a tenement area in order to build a brothel but supernatural forces intervene. Odd but enjoyable tale. Several creepy scenes and many strange looking spirits. 5/10
21.50 Strategist Kanbe Ep. 12 (2014)* TV
After one of his allies revolts, Nobunaga Oda demands hostages from the clans in Harima. Since his lord's son is sickly, Kanbe must send his own son as a hostage.

May 18
22.50 No Regrets For Our Youth (1946)* (Eclipse #7: Postwar Kurosawa)
Dramatic and compelling story of the transformation of a young woman, the daughter of a liberal university professor, from content middle class roots to part of the struggle against the fascism growing in Japan. Set 1933 to 1945. Very well acted. 7/10
23.50 Passing Fancy (1933)* (Eclipse #10: Silent Ozu Three Family Comedies)
A look at the relationships between an uneducated lower class widower and his son and several friends and neighbors. Some very funny scenes, including a little slapstick, balanced by a very moving story. 7/10
24.00 Partners aka Aibou S:1 Ep. 6 (2002)* Recorded from TV
An acquaintance of Kameyama's is murdered and tied to a bank transfer scandal.

May 19
25.00 Goke, Body Snatcher From Hell (1968)* (Eclipse #37: When Horror Came to Shochiku)
A Japanese airliner is informed of a possible bomb on board, gets hijacked by a fleeing assassin, and is forced to crash by a flying saucer and then the trouble really starts! Not a good day to fly. Good but standard b-movie plot where a generally low budget menace brings out the worst in an isolated group of people. 6/10

May 20
26.00 Take Aim at the Police Van (1960)* (Eclipse #17: Nikkatsu Noir)
A police bus transporting three prisoners is ambushed and two of the inmates are injured. The guard on duty is suspended for six months and decides to try to find out why the attack happened. Much to like, a wild ride that just keeps speeding up but in the end I didn't get how it all tied together. Some very convenient coincidences. 7/10

May 21
26.50 Johnny Socko and His Flying Robot
Ep. 7: Our Enemy: Scalion (1967) / Ep. 8: The Challenge of the Two-Headed Monster (1967)
Johnny and company face off against an manta-ray type monster that sprays acid and a strange looking beast that has two faces. We also meet Harlequin, the Gargoyle leader of all Japan.
27.00 Partners aka Aibou S:1 Ep. 7 (2002)* Recorded from TV
A restaurant chain owner is murdered. We see the crime so we know who did it from the opening scene. Sugishita solves the crime using a keen eye and a wildly amazing coincidence. This doesn't detract from a touching, bittersweet story.

May 22
27.25 Johnny Socko and His Flying Robot Ep. 9: Tentaclon: An Electric Monster (1967)*
The return of Dr. Botanus and a very cool beastie that takes 60,000 people hostage make for a very entertaining episode.

May 23
28.25 Son of Godzilla (1967)
On an island where scientists are conduction weather control experiments, a baby Godzilla is hatched and must contend with giant praying manitses and a big old spider. Quite a comedown for The King of the Monsters but not totally awful. The giant insects look OK and the snow scenes are very nice but the fights aren't very dynamic. 4/10

May 24
28.50 Johnny Socko and His Flying Robot Ep. 10: The Transformed Humans (1967)*
Dr. Botanus and Harlequin try to destroy another UNICORN conference and Giant Robo battles Lagarian, a monster with silver dreadlocks.
29.00 Ultraman Ep. 36: Don't Shoot, Arashi! (1967)* / Ep. 37: The Small Hero (1967)*
The Science Patrol fights a monster that mutates and grows more aggressive when attacked and, in an excellent episode, must try to prevent an attack on Tokyo by 60 resurrected monsters.
30.00 Legends of Dinosaurs and Birds (1977)*
A plesiosaur and a pterodactyl like thing cause havoc around a small isolated lake at the foot of Mt. Fuji. Kind of a cross between a US 1950's SF movie and a SYFY original plot. I didn't care for the pacing and the monsters were too stiff. I also didn't like the main character. 4/10
30.50 Negadon The Monster from Mars (2005)* / Magara The Giant Monster (2005)* / Magara: The Final Showdown (2005)* / Interview with writer and director Jun Awazu
Short animated films, in the case of the last two very short. A spaceship from Mars crashed in Tokyo. Kaiju mayhem follows. Touted on the DVD case as "The world's first completely computer generated monster movie". Of course the technology has improved since 2005 especially in terms of movement but the designs, atmosphere, story and (Japanese) voice acting are all excellent. 7/10
31.50 Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. (2003)
Mothra promises to protect Japan if the Godzilla bones used in constructing Mechagodzilla are returned to the sea. Well produced kaiju battles. The movie is entertaining and satisfying. 6/10
32.00 Strategist Kanbe Ep. 13: Where are the Kodera? (2014)* TV
The Oda forces arrive in Harima and Kanbe learns to overcome his obsession with the immediate to focus on a larger goal.

May 25
32.50 The Gutsy Frog Ep. 17 (1973)* / Ep. 18 (1973)*
Often slapstick anime comedy about a boy, Hiroshi, who has a talking frog named Pyonkichi embedded on his only good shirt. Two stories per episode. A little odd but the first story in episode 18, Daddy, was pretty funny.
33.00 Partners aka Aibou S:1 Ep. 8 (2002)* Recorded from TV
Our heroes try to capture The Monster Mugger who may be the suspect released on technicalities after Kameyama didn't follow proper procedures when making the arrest. The solution is kind of clever but still has some too convenient aspects to it. I'm beginning to see that this show is more about personalities and relationships than about fair solutions to mysteries. I like it though.
34.00 One Wonderful Sunday (1947)* (Eclipse #7: Postwar Kurosawa)
One Sunday date in the lives of a working class couple in postwar Japan. Frequent swings between hope and despair, mirroring the times. Not everything works but in general a very involving film. 6/10
34.50 Partners aka Aibou S:1 Ep. 9 (2002)* Recorded from TV
An intriguing mystery about the theft of two million yen from a real estate firm has a good solution that had just a little bit of science fiction to it.

May 26
35.50 Shinobi No Mono 2: Vengeance (1963)*
Goemon gets revenge for the destruction of the Iga ninjas but faces more loss as the unification of Japan continues. Lots of intrigue and some good, realistic ninja tricks on display. 7/10
36.00 Johnny Socko and His Flying Robot Ep. 11: The Terrifying Sand Creature (1967)* / Ep. 12: Amberon: The Synthetic Monster (1967)*
A UNICORN base at the South Pole is buried in sand and Giant Robo fights a monster that gets larger when attacked.

May 27
37.00 The Living Skeleton (1968)* (Eclipse #37: When Horror Came to Shochiku)
The members of a gang who hijacked a ship and killed everyone on board for the gold it was carrying begin dying mysteriously. Nifty little horror film with a great final 15 minutes. 6/10

May 28
38.00 Cruel Gun Story (1964)* (Eclipse #17: Nikkatsu Noir)
An armor car heist doesn't go as planned and then the double crosses begin. Exciting crime drama that ends up with a really high body count. Lead Joe Shishido is really good. 7/10

May 29
38.50 Partners aka Aibou S:1 Ep. 10 (2002)* Recorded from TV
Sugishito and Kameyama wake up in the middle of nowhere slightly injured. They review their investigation of the death of a film director to try to figure out what happened. There are few suspects and from what the viewer has seen the culprit is pretty obvious but it's still a fun episode with a poignant conclusion.

May 30
39.00 Johnny Socko and His Flying Robot Ep. 13: Opticom Must Be Destroyed (1968)* / Ep. 14: The Monstrous Flying Jawbone (1968)*
Our heroes are menaced by a giant eye and a flying monster that's almost all mouth. Also, Gargoyle commander Fangar is introduced.

May 31
39.50 Ultraman Ep. 38: Spaceship Rescue Order (1967)* / Ep. 39: Farewell, Ultraman (1967)*
In an excellent episode, the Science Patrol has to save a damaged space station and in the final episode, Ultraman is critically injured fighting off an invasion from space.
40.00 Partners aka Aibou S:1 Ep. 11 (2002)* Recorded from TV
Sugishito is shot by a sniper and we learn about his past and about the creation of the Special Missions Unit.
41.00 Partners aka Aibou S:1 Ep. 12 (2002)* Recorded from TV
Men freed from a hostage situation 15 years ago are dying. Very good mystery and solution in this double length season finale.
42.00 Sleepy Eyes of Death 4: Sword of Seduction (1964)* (Sleepy Eyes of Death Collector's Set Vol. 1)
A very good entry involving opium smuggling, persecuted Christians, a rumored saint, a touch of Satanism, and a mad princess. 7.5/10
43.00 A Colt is My Passport (1967)* (Eclipse #17: Nikkatsu Noir)
Joe Shishido stars as a hitman on the run after a successful assassination. 7/10
43.50 Lupin the 3rd Kooky Kabuki Part 1 / Kooky Kabuki Part 2
A new gang of experienced thieves tries to steal Lupin's loot.
44.00 Strategist Kanbe Ep. 14: Siblings Torn Apart (2014)* TV
Kanbe is forced to fight his sister-in-law's family who are allied with the Mouri against the Oda.

Re: The Fifth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge - May 1-31, 2014 **List Thread**




The Kaiju Film Challenge


Goal: 20 Films

May 1
1)Godzilla, King of the Monsters (Criterion Blu-Ray) - A genre classic. (Disc 4.5/5, Movie 5/5)

2)Godzilla Raids Again (Classic Media SE DVD) - The American version is a bit goofy in its narrative, but still entertaining. (Disc 4/5, Movie 3/5)

May 2
3)Godzilla 1998 (Blu-Ray Mastered in 4k) - a.k.a. Ferris Bueller Meets Godzilla. If you like this movie this is the absolute best PQ. (Disc PQ 5/5, Movie 3.5/5)

May 3
4)King Kong vs. Godzilla (Blu-Ray) - Two legendary kaiju return to the big screen to do battle. A nostalgic favorite (Disc PQ 4/5, Movie 4/5)

May 4
5)Cloverfield (Blu-Ray) - JJ Abrams gives America "it's own monster" and Manhatten gets destroyed. (Disc PQ 4.5/5, Movie 5/5)

May 5
6)Godzilla 2000 (DVD) - Tag line: "Get Ready To Crumble"..Big G returned to US theaters in 2000 looking quite a bit meaner with large fangs and over-sized dorsel fins. The first movie in the Millenium series of films. (DVD PQ 3.5/5, Movie 3.5/5)

May 6
7)Godzilla Vs. Megaguirus (Blu-Ray) - Godzilla battles a giant mosquito. A rather dull Millenium series entry. (Disc PQ 4/5 Movie 2.5/5)

May 7
8)Godzilla Vs. Destoroyah (Blu-ray) - Godzilla glows red and has a melt down (literally). Good special effects and an engaging story. The final film in the Heisei series (Disc PQ 3.5/5, Movie 4/5)

May 10
9)Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (DVD) - A fan favorite from the Millenium Series. Good story and FX (Disc PQ 4/5, Movie 4/5)

May 15
10)Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (DVD) - Japan uses the bones of the original Godzilla to build the Millenium series version of Mechagodzilla. Unfortunately no Blu-Ray release for one of the better Millenium movies. (Disc PQ 3.5/5, Movie 4.5/5)

11)Godzilla: Tokyo SOS (Blu-ray) - Sequal set a year after the events of Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla. Mothra helps fight Godzilla. Blu-Ray picture marginally better than the DVD version. (Disc PQ 4/5, Movie 4/5)

May 16
12)Godzilla Final Wars (Blu-Ray) - This one really is as bad as some say it is. Difficult to sit through. Even Godzilla's design seems off. The only saving grace is just about every monster in the franchise makes an appearance. (Disc PQ 4/5, Movie 1.5/5)

May 18
13)Godzilla 2014 (Theater, 3D) - Now thats how you make a Godzilla flick (or any giant monster movie for that matter)! Good story, great special FX, and Godzilla's design is awesome. Only complaint is I would have liked just a little more screen time for Big G. No need to see it in 3D. Depth is nice but doesn't really add much. (Movie 5/5)

May 19
14) Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (Blu-ray) - One of my favorite movies from the great Heisei series. Lots of action, good story, and "awesome" early 90's FX. (Disc PQ 3.5/5, Movie 4/5)

May 20
15)Gamera: The Guardian of the Universe (Blu-ray) - Gamera fights giant man-eating birds. Awesome monster movie mahem. (Disc PQ 3.5/5, Movie 3.5/5)

May 24
- Transformers (Blu-Ray) - I'm not sure I want to count this since it's not "technically" a Kaiju movie. There are several similarities howver and one could consider it an "americanized" Kaiju movie. We certainly get the big city destroying throwdown at the end that all kaiju fans love. Maybe I'll consider it a "wildcard" (Disc PQ 4/5, Movie 5/5)

May 25
16)Rodan (Classic Media SE DVD) - An atomic age classic (Disc PQ 3.5/5, Movie 3.5/5)

May 26
- Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Blu-Ray) - Bigger, louder, and as much fun as the first. The Fx are top notch and these movies are just plain fun. (Disc PQ 4.5/5, Movie 4/5)

May 27
17)Pacific Rim (Blu-Ray) - Guillermo del Toro's modern Kaiju classic. "A movie about monsters and giant robots for people who like monsters and giant robots" (Disc PQ 5/5, Movie 5/5)

May 28
18)Gamera: Attack of the Legion (Blu-Ray) - Much darker than the first movie. Gamera takes a beating in this one. (Disc PQ 4/5, Movie 4/5)

May 31
19)Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla (Blu-Ray) - This one is a little too goofy at times for my taste, but the monster throw down is pretty good. (Disc PQ 4/5, Movie 3/5)




In the Que

1)Gamera: Revenge of Iris (Blu-Ray)
2)
3)

Re: The Fifth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge - May 1-31, 2014 **List Thread**

Rock Concert and Music Videos May Marathon.
1) Duran Duran Dancing on the Valentine (1984) VHS 05/01/2014 - In the 80's they had Video 45's. 3 high budget videos.
2) Duran Duran Arena (1985) VHS 05/02/2014 - Oakland concert surrounded by Duran Duran's version of a Barbarella sequel.
3) Duran Duran Sing Blue Silver (1984) VHS 05/03/2014 - It's like jumping into a time machine and tavelling into the 1980's.
4) Gwar Skulhedface (1994) VHS 05/06/2014 - Sick and Distrurbing Rock Musical by Gwar. Rest in pieces Oderus Urungus.
5) Eric Clapton and Friends (1986) VHS 05/15/2014 - Eric makes his guitar talk and weep. He is truly one of the best guitar players of all time. Phil Collins on drums. Great 80's concert.
6) Neil Young + Crazy Horse Ragged Glory (1991) VHS 05/15/2014 - This music shows the confusion of the early 90's. It was the death of the 80's, and the birth of grunge/metal sound of Neil.
7) Nine Inch Nails Beside You in Time (2007) DVD 05/16/2014 - Great camera work and sound during their Live With Teeth Tour. I saw them live with Queens of the Stone Age on the With Teeth tour.
8) The B-52's 1979-1989 (1990) VHS 05/16/2014 - Mostly vidoes. The live version of Rock Lobster from 1979 is raw energetic and crazy awesome.
9) Pet Shop Boys Television (1986) VHS 05/17/2014 - Videos of their 80's hits.
10) Primus Hallucino-Genetics: Live 2004 (2004) DVD 05/22/2014 - Primus plays Frizzle Fry album in its entirety plus other songs. Long jams of songs, sometimes going over twice the original length.
11) Judas Priest Live Vengeance '82 (2005) DVD 05/23/2014 - Originally released in 1983 as Judas Priest Live. Reissue on DVD 2005. Priest in their prime recorded during The Screaming for Vengeance World Tour.
12) AC/DC Iron Man 2 (2010) DVD 05/29/2014 - The Deluxe CD/DVD Edition contains AC/DC live performances through the years 1978-2009. It is not necessarily the soundtrack, but more of a companion cross promotional release with the movie.
