Original Godzilla Getting 4K Restoration

This news warms my heart like a newly delivered basket of puppies and kittens. The mother of all Kaiju movies, 1954's Godzilla, or Gojira for you purists out there, is getting itself a remastering in Japan for the ages! Even cooler? The sequels are getting some love too!

Godzilla (Criterion Blu-ray)

Starring GODZILLA, Raymond Burr, Akira Takarada, Momoko Kochi, Akihiko Hirata, Takashi Shimura, Fuyuki Murakami

Motion Picture Purgatory: Mothra

Now this is what we call serendipity! In an interesting counterpoint to the recent news stories about a potential new American version of Godzilla, Trembles' MPP this week is about Mothra. Let's just hope it doesn't give anyone any ideas about another remake!

Motion Picture Purgatory: The H-Man

One thing I love about being the designated DC staffer to put up Trembles' review each week is that we just never know what the hell he's going to come up with next! Case in point: 1958's Bijo to Ekitainingen aka The H-Man.
