    Must have! This was the only Godzilla film without a DVD release in the US until now. I bought a region-free Chinese DVD a few years back, but will happily upgrade and snag the Blu-ray. Shame it doesn’t feature the Godzilla 1985 cut of the film. But this is the cut to see, no doubt. Less product placement, fewer stupid attempts at comedy, more restored footage, and no Russians trying to destroy the world. (In the Japanese cut, a Russian commander dies as he fails to prevent a nuclear launch. The US edit has the Russian dying just after he presses the button to start the launch. Damn silly.) The Godzilla 1985 cut is tied up in a tangle of rights issues. Kraken/Section 23 says they tried to acquire the rights but it didn’t work out. A future release for G1985 should be considered very unlikely at this point. But anyway, for kaiju fans like myself, this release is reason for celebration indeed.

    It would be a good idea for Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett to do an official RiffTrax commentary for the international English-dubbed version of “The Return of Godzilla” even though the late Raymond Burr isn’t in it.
