Gojira desu ne!

Finally, the ultimate B-movie monster stomps into view in the original Nipponese version on DVD this next week... so we can now watch the subtitled version where the actors' lips will actually match the dialogue. And all the atomic bomb/anti-war subtext hasn't been squashed and edited out for an American audience. Forget Raymond Burr -- this is the real deal. From the advance word I've read, my guess is that we haven't seen the real Gojira until we've seen this special edition. Fry up some good yakisoba, crank up the Ifukube soundtrack, and settle in for the 1954 classic (pre-Son of Godzilla silliness -- good grief, remember that?). Yosh!!
