5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful masterpice, rather sucky DVD., January 9, 2000
This review is from: Godzilla Vs Mothra (DVD)
This does have the choice between pann and scann and Letterbox format, but the rest of the DVD is sucky. They could have presented the film subtitled in it's original Japanese version, with the Jpanese and American trailers and with Special effects outakes and the American sequince but they didn't do that. However, the Widescreen presentation is crystal clear and this looks 100 tiumes better than the rather dispappointing Japanese laserdisk (that had kind of muted colors and was OVERLY letterboxed (it was like in 2.76:1). This is dubbed but it's not bad at all. The only problem with AIP's Titan Productions dubbing is that it's kind of garbled and hard to make out, though it's better than most of Toho's international version dubbing. The real problem though is the pathetic extras, the fake trailers which are just video advertisemnets and the pathetic picture gallery. However, this is one of Honda's greatest masterpeices and Japan's best sci-fi films, though it is bested by Matango, Magic Serpent and Goke. If only they could release those films on DVD. This bests all of Honda's other monster movies (exept for Matango), even the original Godzilla and Mothra. All in all, if you can get past the sucky DVD extras, get this film.
