The American International version from 1969 had far superior
dubbing done in New York by Titra/Titan sound and featured
the voices of Peter (SPEED RACER) Fernandes, Jack Curtis and
Hal Linden amoung others. This is a tragic loss. The dialogue and
acting were so much better. What a shame.
KEEPING SCORE: The Monsters and where they came from.
Destroy All Monsters has a line-up of eleven giant monsters. Here are lists of the classic eleven, the ones who didn't make it into DAM and the ones who came later in the original series.
1) GODZILLA the king of all monsters from GODZILLA (1954-56)
2) MOTHRA giant telepathic caterpillar from the movie MOTHRA (1962)
3) RODAN flying pteranodon type creature from RODAN (1957)
4) ANGUIRUS armored dinosaur from GIGANTIS THE FIRE MONSTER (aka GODZILLA RAIDS AGAIN 1955)
5) MINYA (aka LITTLE GODZILLA) Godzilla's son from SON OF GODZILLA (1967)
6) MANDA sea serpent/dragon from ATRAGON (1963)
7) SPIGA (aka KUMONGA) the giant spider from SON OF GODZILLA (1967)
8) GOROSAURUS giant allosaurus type from KING KONG ESCAPES (1968)
9) VARAN a giant flying marine iguana from VARAN- THE UNBELIEVABLE (1959)
10) BARAGON a floppy eared subteranian dinosaur from FRANKENSTIEN CONQUERS THE WORLD (1965)
11) KING GHIDORAH three headed alien/dragon from GHIDRAH- THE THREE HEADED MONSTER (1964)
These are the guys who were around at the time but, for whatever reason, didn't get to appear in DAM:
1) KING KONG from KING KONG VS. GODZILLA, KING KONG ESCAPES etc.Read more ›
I received my Blu Ray of Destroy All Monsters today and promptly dropped it into the Blu Ray player.
I commend Media Blasters/Tokyo Shock for releasing this one.
From a story perspective, all the giant monsters are collected on a single island (Monster Island) for research purposes. Contact is lost with the control facility and what is discovered is that a race of aliens has taken control of the giant monsters. The giant monsters are sent to many different cities across the world and the human race must then wrestle control of the giant monsters back from the aliens. Fun stuff!
I'm torn here. I really, really wanted to love this release. What is there is 1080p HD in name, but the detail quality seems kind of low. I don't know what happened, but the colors seem washed out and faded while there are some instances of dust and dirt to be seen. Interestingly enough, you can still see the control cables and wires used for various special effects, so perhaps this was the best that could be done with it? I've read (and a commenter stated the possibility) that the source was a 35mm print.
In my mind, the Blu Ray doesn't look to be much better than an upscaled DVD. I don't have the Media Blasters DVD to compare directly, so I don't know if it really is an upscale or not, but every indication points to this being a true HD source.
Disappointing from an HD perspective certainly.Read more ›

|What movie was it that Rodan had energy beam powers??||
Rodan gained an atomic ray (I believe the "official" term is "uranium heat beam") after his initial battle with Godzilla in 1993's "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II."
