    Hey, sorry I didn’t post for Son of Godzilla, but…uh…not really much to say. It’s lackluster at best. I appreciate Kumonga. His entry in the series was great but disappointingly short. He only appeared in Son of G, Destroy All Monsters (DAM), All Monster’s Attack (AMA) and Godzilla: Final Wars.

    It’s not a highlight among the series. On to barely more inhabitable waters, i.e. Varan. I can’t say too much about the American Version as I do not own it. I only own the Japanese Version. And from what I’ve heard previously, and now including your opinions, it is the far superior one. The Japanese version does not have any of the American scenes or actors in it. Which makes for a more concise film (one point you guys were confused about was why Varan was eating the parachute drops, this is explained in the Japanese version). After hearing your guys’ opinions, I’m happy not have paid for it.

    Not sure if you need to do both versions of Frankenstein Conquers the World. It’s merely a difference of the U.S. version cutting about 5 minutes of footage. And the loss of Nick Adams voicing his own role. =(
