I am normally against any and all kinds of bootlegging, but when something is not available to me, I can be a little bit more lenient. If this is indeed a bootleg, it will be my first. I have a Samsung BD-P1500 blu-ray player that is supposedly easy to unlock its DVD region via the remote, but I'll try that on a cheaper import first. Too bad it doesn't unlock for blu-ray.
If I have a complaint, it's that the Sony/Tri-Star releases are awfully shallow. No special features, no Japanese audio w/subs. I even used to have a Destroy All Monsters disc that didn't even have menus. It just played the minute you put the disc in, then repeated when it hit the end. And only 1 chapter.
Godzilla: Final Wars' subtitle (the "Final Wars" part) also totally steals the font that the Sharks use for a lot of their arena graphics (which, let's be honest, they stole from Batman Forever, but whatevs... )
"Do you know what "nemesis" means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent."
Sorry, I am not taking signature requests at this time.
since we were just talking monster movies, I feel compelled to add some useless trivia:
did you know it would take just about 2 full days of continuous movie watching to get through every Toho-produced Godzilla film (not counting the US abomination with Matthew Broedrick). Running times differ for the older movies that were re-cut to be dubbed/released in english, but the rough estimate I figured out would be somewhere in the 44 hour range.
EDIT: also in other nerd news - part 1 of Episode 30 of DBZ Abridged releases tomorrow

I randomly found this video, and then I watched some of his lectures. His lectures and demonstrations are actually pretty enthralling lol. I wish this guy taught all of my physics and engineering courses.
Never had one, but I can tell you that I was in no shape for anything on Saturday during my college days
Oh yeah this was my first one. I think I did alright. Sure there was dried salt from the river all over my body and face (from rowing hooray!), and I kept thinking of how glorious breakfast was gonna be but I'm confident I pulled a solid B-.
