FYI: Spike is selling signed copies of DTRT off his store for retail + tax and shipping. Link is on his Instagram.

That would be cool, but DHL shipping at $42 isn't going to cut it.

I love Godzilla movies but I can't see myself paying that much for it. I guess if I was a die-hard fan I would. I also understand that Criterion went through great lengths to remaster all 15 films.

I'll gladly pay $125 for it though. But not $200.

Not feeling the artwork.

It should be in that range shortly after release through Barnes and Noble’s 50% off sale.

Hell yeah that works for me. I think I only bought once from Barnes online.

Yeah, I'm a fan of the Big G, but I'm definitely waiting for the sale, especially since I'll have to hang onto many of the older releases.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

The only Godzilla movie I own is the embarrassing Godzilla 1998 on DVD. Which I might fling out the window one day.

Funny thing is the other day I was thinking how I miss watching some old Godzilla movies. Here we are today with that announcement of a box-set.

This will be mine when the price is just right.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I was reading a review on Amazon and info obtained from Criterion is that Toho is not including the original American English Language dubs but new English dubs recorded in Canada in the 90s....that really is a major knock against getting the set because I grew up watching these films with the original English language dubs, any changes to that just feel wrong. Maybe I will just take it upon myself to watch the films in Japanese with subtitles...technically, the best way to watch them anyway.

It sounds like the version of King Kong Vs. Godzilla is the American edited version I believe I watched when it was on Sunday’s as part of KTLA’s Family Film Festival, and you know what....that is just awesome. I would say the majority of fans of this film only viewed the American version and any other version would just not feel like we are watching the same film that we grew up with. Usually, I do not consider the American Dub version the definitive presentation of a Godzilla film but for King Kong Vs. Godzilla I will make an exception to this rule.

It also has the original Japanese version of King Kong vs Godzilla which for some reason is listed as a special feature. I'm glad they are including both but curious why the original version is listed as a special feature (for the 1954 film, the Japanese is listed as the film and the American Godzilla, King of the Monsters is listed as a special feature which makes more sense).

I picked up Fox's "All About Eve" Blu-ray for next-to-nothing a few years back, and it has all the features this one has (it's packed!). Much like "Blue Velvet", it'll depend if they produce those legacy features in HD rather than Fox's SD, and if there's some significant improvement in the PQ.

Recently watched Cold War on Amazon. It was in 4K and looked fantastic. I thought the movie was great, but knowing I can watch it in 4K means I'll probably skip the Criterion BD.

Me too. I think from Costco It's a digibook and very nice.

Don't think I need anything else from this batch
