The old VHS of Dinosaurus! is the first place I ever saw any footage of Godzilla, thanks to the Godzilla 1985 promo at the start of the tape.

What a great time to be a monster & sci-fi fan!!!

If you can't sell all the DVDs, there are sites like DeClutter.com https://www.decluttr.com/, where you can sell them off, though you may not get the biggest fortune.

I am actually going the opposite direction. My father just unearthed my grandfather's old 16mm projector and since my father has the very same machine, he gave it to me and it is still in good condition! All that is needed is a lamp/ blub, which I just ordered on Ebay. I can't believe I get to watch some of my 16mm Godzilla films again! Heck, I will probably go on Ebay and see if I could find more 16mm Toho or giant monster features! :mrgreen:


If I'd go that route but having the film on one format is good enough for me right now.

Warner Archives is going mad today!

I just bought Popeye Volume 1 and had been anticipating Volume 2. The wait will be over soon! With "Jonny Quest" I really hope that the do not make a feature film out of this. Just enjoy the series and now soon in BD form!

'None But the Brave" was a Toho /Frank Sinatra co-production, with very familiar faces (Tatsuya Mihashi, Kenji Sahara & Susumu Kurobe). It also brings up that interesting trivia question - What was the only movie where John Williams did the score and Eiji Tsuburaya directed the special effects?

That's pretty cool. Any word if the Jonny Quest set will have all original audio restored, or will it be the censored version?

^ I believe it's unedited. That was the first question from fans the moment it was announced!

We'll finally get to see the moment that the creators of the Venture Brothers called "Race Bannon yelling at the natives for not believing in Jesus."

Well to be fair, a "heathen" can apply to anyone not associated with a major religion. But it's often used out if context, especially by ol Race Bannon lol....add the animal reference and that just makes it worse.

^ It's just that I remember as a teenager listening to the audio commentary for like the first episode of The Venture Brothers (where, I believe, Brock Samson briefly recreates the scene) and they mentioned it in that exact phrasing and I knew exactly what they were talking about so I laughed for like a solid minute and it's just lodged in my brain now!

There were a couple audio edits to JONNY QUEST on the DVD release, the Race Bannon one and another after Jonny and Hadji push a yeti down some stairs (I think, it's in that episode certainly). Whoever was responsible for editing the audio on those episodes must have done it late in the DVD release's production because if you turn on the subtitles, the dialogue for the censored audio shows up right where it''s supposed to be.

About time! However, I was hoping that all of the "Thin Man" movies would have been released in one box-set. My favorite of the series is actually the second feature, "After The Thin Man" with a rather shocking whodunit! :shock:

With all of the talk on "The Joker" this past week, I'm actually more excited about seeing the very movie that inspired the Joker character - "The Man Who Laughs" with the great Conrad Veidt, which is coming out on blu-ray June 4th, 2019, via Flicker Alley.

https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Man-Who-Laughs-Blu-ray/237673/


Anyone ordered this and had a chance to watch it yet? Sure looks like a winner. And speaking of Veidt...

I sorely wish some reputable video company out there (with the necessary resources & equipment) would do a full-blown rescue & restoration of Veidt's excellent "The Passing of the Third Floor Back" one of these days. If you've never seen it, it is a marvelous little film. I bought a PD copy from Sinister Cinema years & years ago; fell in love with it from the first viewing. But everything I've seen out there currently on the video market is about the same quality ...and that isn't very good. :(

Kino-Lorber and/or Olive Films... where are you!!!!!!!??????

I imagine they'll dole 'em out one at a time, and I'll grab each as they're released - even the last two, which I think aren't all that good!

The amount of special features they've wrangled up for the Quatermass Blu-rays is frankly astounding. Three commentary tracks for each movie? I guess I'm going to learn all there is to know about Quatermass.

Today I got an e-mail from Sony regarding 4K titles that I'd like to see while they didn't have the Godzilla films to select they did have an option to write your own response of titles you'd like to see in 4K so I obviously put in any Godzilla movie they have the license too. I doubt it'll happen but you never know.

Never seen The Devil Rides Out, but there was a picture of Satan in one of my monster movie books that always creeped me out as a child. I guess I owe it to myself to finally check it out. Speaking of... has anyone here seen The Devil's Rain. If so, was are your thoughts? I was considering looking for it as well, just because of the pretty amazing cast. Not a big fan of Satanic-themed films, but there are only so many old(er) sci-fi & horror films out there. I've more or less seen (or own) everything else, so this is one of the few genres left for me to investigate.

Oh, and I am very glad to see the '88 Blob finally making the jump to R1 hi-def. It's a really solid little flick and would've been a winner whether there had been a previous incarnation or not. IMHO, it's one of those remakes that's every bit as good as the original that inspired it. And speaking of remakes, when you take into account the time span between the two we're actually slightly overdue for another cinematic stab at the slithery space slime. The F/X would no doubt be stellar for a 3rd go 'round... but would the overall finished product be as good???

Not really kaiju related but August 13th is going to be a good day for Marvel fans. Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, Thor, Thor Dark World and Avengers Endgame all hit 4K UHD BD that day. I would assume some point in time this year we'll get the last three Marvel movies those being Ant Man, Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy

I'm ok with how I have them (a mix of DVD and BRD)...But what they really need to do is offer some outstanding bundle on digital. Since most of the phase 1 movies were released prior to digital services really being offered (or had the digital copy that you actually downloaded onto your computer or device) , purchasing them again is not cost effective, nor is paying full price for digital. I'd pay maybe $25 for the first 6 films on digital, certainly not the $20 per film digital sites are asking now. Of course Im sure all the MCU films will be on Disney+ streaming when it comes out, and I guess that will be my *convenience* factor, when I don't feel like popping in a disc.

It's odd that I hear more and more people talk about not owning disc players, and I guess there is more than enough content out there to keep people entertained. But man, where do you go for so many classic older films? I'm so glad I have my physical discs and will continue to purchase them,

I had only a few Marvel movies on BD so I don't mind waiting for the 4K releases. It looks like the last few titles will come out in September. Once they do come out I'm going to rewatch all the movies over again.

I think I'm going to stick with Looper's suggested viewing of them which is: Iron Man, IM2, Incredible Hulk, Thor, Cap. America, Avengers, Cap Winter Soldier, Thor 2, Iron Man 3, Guardians 1, Avengers: AoU, Ant Man, Cap Civil War, Black Panther, SM: Homecoming, Guardians Vol 2, Doctor Strange, Thor 3, Avengers Infinity War, Ant Man 2, Captain Marvel, Endgame and then SM: Far From Home.

I think they have the one shot Item 47 in there too between Thor 1 and Cap 1

I know most people want to go in chronological order which would put Cap 1 and Captain Marvel at the beginning but they feel that its best to leave them in the spots I put because it doesn't detract from any "future" surprises.

Arrow's re-releasing Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II as single discs after their box set went out of print. I'm very happy about this, as I love these movies and every other version of them available looks like crap!
