Excerpt: About time Godzilla vs Biollante get a Blu-ray release (it's also out on DVD). We have to wait 20 years since the 1992 VHS release to see this again. But now it's out with the Japanese audio with subs and also the English dub from the VHS is included for those that grew up watching Godzilla in dubbed form. Video: Well I know it's a remastered version, but the problem it's a up-res of the DVD, not a true HD.
Excerpt: Godzilla Vs Biollante, the seventeenth outing of Japan's biggest monster, makes it's way to the U.S. on Blu-ray for the first time since it's original VHS release in 1992 by HBO Video for Miramax, pre-Disney buyout. After the events in the 1984 reboot, Godzilla (or Godzilla 1985 to us in the States); Godzilla is reawakened after a Middle Eastern terror cell and a group known as "Bio-Major" blow up Mt. Mihara. Which is where he was sucked into at the end of the last film.
Excerpt: the movie itself is great... i like godzilla 1985 better...but this is my 2nd fav... honestly i dont like the hesiei series that much. i much prefer the showa series...however biollante and 85 are great godzilla movies. video- compared to my hong kong dvd it's night and day... more grain and better depth and clarity. colors are more natural. audio- this is a nice upgrade as well...sounding clearer and more crystalline...very nice. extras- a 50min documentary!
Excerpt: Nice overall conversion, audio is very clear and the addition of the original Japanese langauge with english subtitles is a great, viewers get to see the true representation of the film. The musical score sounds excellent, probably the best since it was originally shown in movie theatres.
