    Godzilla Laserdiscs?

    Post  edm on Fri Feb 04, 2011 2:23 pm

    Hi, I'm new here and to the world of laserdiscs.

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me if any of the Godzilla films were released in Japanese with English subtitles?

    I've been searching around and can find them either in Japanese no English subtitles, or English dubbed, so I suspect there weren't any available with Japanese audio and English subs.

    Either way I'm tempted to buy King of the Monsters.

    Thanks for the help,

    The Laserdisc Database is always very useful to this sort of thing. Though from this link to all titles 'Godzilla'ish, I am not sure exactly how much on this occasion....

    Not knowing 100%, but I am reasonably certain that none of the Japanese Godzilla movies will have English subtitles.
    Out of all the Japanese movie laserdiscs that I've come across over here, only one has had an English subtitle track (shiko funjyatta [sumo do sumo dont]. Great movie, if you've not seen it). I suppose It's kind of like how the US pressings of movies never come with Japanese subtitles.
    Having said that, I wonder if there were any Japanese Godzilla movies pressed in the US for western audiences. They would obviously have the English subs. Unfortunately, I can't check at the minute because LDDB.com seems to be down Crying or Very sad

    Thanks for the replies and the help.

    Looks like there aren't any, which makes sense as Laserdiscs don't seem to have as extensive language selections as DVDs.

    I'm rather tempted to get King of the Monsters anyway as the US dub at least adds in a few new scenes and sub plots.

    Thanks again
