Re: Best Audio Commentaries / Worst Audio Commentaries (reply)
Add me as a huge fan of any commentary by Tom Weaver and Tim Lucas. Also, David Kalat's work is excellent, especially on the Godzilla films. Also love the Robinson Crusoe On Mars blu ray.  And I still love the first commentary ever, the...

Re: King Kong vs Godzilla (reply)
The film is a comedic romp...with a lot of deliberate satire. But the kong suit was just inept...not a creative decision. Tsuburaya had a few real clunker suits n the 60s...this was one of the worst

Re: Special Effects Collection: SON OF KONG, MIGHTY JOE YOUNG, THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS, THEM (reply)
Beast is a wonderful improvement over the DVD. Mighty Joe Young and Son of Kong really shine as well. But as for THEM , other than the (matted) widescreen, it is a dull looking transfer. flipped between the DVD and the bu in real time...

Re: GODZILLA (2014) (reply)
Its hard to compare japanese godzilla with the american film for a number of reasons. Culturaly, the japanese films have their own asthetic....realisim is secondary to colorful imaginative imagry. Its like comparing kabuki or noh theater...

Re: Toho and Hammer Role Reversal (reply)
Agree about Gorgo...an often excellent film whose visuals are often outstanding ( other than the blue screen work and stock footage which was rather poor) but in plot, fx, music, acting...all top marks and arguably better than what TOHO...

Re: Just saw the new Godzilla movie (reply)
Doctor Kaiju, you keep falling into the same lazy trap. The idea that all other Godzilla films are poorly or flatly acted and written (false) and somehow why should the 2014 be any different or better. . You were the one who brought up...
