I am still giving this item 5 stars for the honesty and professionalism EBHE has had with the fan community. however there is a caution: from 10/18/12-
"We have to go to manufacture today, and we don't have Miramax/Toho's blessing to include Ed G's commentary yet. We have initiated Plan B, which is releasing the discs without the commentary. I don't have much more for details right now, but I can tell you that if you are dying to buy Godzilla vs Biollante with the Ed G commentary, DO NOT buy it on release day. We have the replication masters ready to manufacture with the commentary included, but we are not allowed to use them until we get approvals. My apologies for getting your hopes up. I kept forging ahead hoping that Toho would get their approval to us at the last minute, but it hasn't happened."
So while this will have other Toho approved extras, it will NOT have the english commentary on release day. If you are planning on purchasing this item soleley for this purpose, please refrain. Many fans appreciate that sicne this item is so inexpensive they will purchase one in each format (waiting on the commentary to get the other). Echo Bridge has assured the fan community that there will be a public announcement made once the commentary has been approved, and a clear indication on the packaging as well (not like the recent MB fiasco with Godzilla vs Megalon).
This is a direct to Japan version of this movie, with no English track or titles. Fortunately there is an option for English subtitles. And for me, that's really enough. This is a well done movie and now that I look at it, one of the best from the Heisei Godzilla series. It has great elements of classic sci-fi as well as a very sincere feel, similar to the origional 1954 Gojira. The scientist father character is compelling with his duel wreckless and wise natures. He's a character who learns from his mistakes, and actually lives long enough to pass this wisdom to others. His is a great, tragic character arc. This is the first movie to use Godzilla's standard Heisei look, and I think it's pulled off quite well here. He's a slow, lumbering character, but the point is, it doesn't matter how slow he is or if you can spot him. Because you can't stop him! Te close ups of his face are fantastic. I really like the detail on the fleshy tongue. And Biolante is one of the great classic, tragic monsters. She's dangerious, deadly, devious, but has the trapped soul of a lovely girl.
As for the DVD itelf, it's pretty basic. There are vew special fetures or options, but as this is the only official DVD release for this film, that automatically makes it the best. The video quality is somewhat lacking too, but nothing you're not used to if you grew up watching these movies on TV as a kid. But I can see this being somewhat of a dissapointment for many, as there is no English dub. Again, that's fine by me, but it is a little harder trying to watch this with friends who refuse to watch a movie with subtitles.Read more ›

I still have mine showing in ordered but it won't provide me with an estimate on shipping. What's the point of pre-ordering something that isn't available come release day?

Guess so. Either that or someone else bought the rights and they can't print anymore.
