The Original Japanese Masterpiece
The ocean's surface boils white-hot and a Japanese freighter mysteriously vanishes in the Pacific. Rescue boats meets the same fate, and the superstitious villagers of Odo Island fear an ancient legend has come true: the legend of Godzilla! Reawakened from eons-long sleep by an H-bomb test, the behemoth seeks revenge on the civilized world, turning Tokyo into a wasteland of atomic fire and rubble. Caught in the monster's path of destruction are young lovers Emiko and Ogata, who must betray their friend Dr. Serizawa, a brilliant but tormented scientist, in order to save the world.
Classic Media presents the original and uncut Japanese-language version of Ishiro Honda's Gojira (1954), critically acclaimed as a bold anti-nuclear allegory and one of the greatest monster movies of all time.

There is a noticeable difference between the puppet version of Godzilla's head and that of the actual suit, but to it didn't take away from my enjoyment at all.
You can read my review for the special features on this disc here: [...]
But I dont need to see it to rate it 5 stars, unless the studio does something really stupid with the transfer.
EDIT: I still give the original Japanese version 5 stars, but I have learned from the comments, and after reading
the review of the Blu-ray release compared to the Sony and BFI versions at DVDBeaver, the Blu-ray transfer is sadly lacking.
What a downer!!! I canceled my Blu-ray pre-order. I guess I will just stick with my Sony version which has the
original and the "Americanized" chopped up version with Raymond Burr on a seperate disc.
Maybe someday someone will release this classic on Blu and do it right. I am so dissapointed.
