2011 Toho released some of the Godzilla film on Blu-ray but due the poor sales they didn't release all the films.

NOW Toho will released EVERY Godzilla movie on Blu-ray, even the 1998 film!

Films that aren't on Blu-ray yet will be released July 16th and the other films that are already on Blu-ray will be re-released June 18th. 

All the films include amazing special features and that's why I'm going to buy some of them.

I saw this too. The discs they've already released look fantastic and the special features for each are incredible. Furthermore, for people living in North America, Blurays have from Japan have the same region code. So they'll play on American BD players.

The main drawback, for me, is there is no english subtitle option on any of the discs what-so-ever. I love watching films in their respective language, but having no subtitles is a dealbreaker for me. Which is why I'm looking at the North American discs very closely.

damnit. well they're still running a good $50-$60 a piece with no subtitles. It's cool they are doing this, the only thing im looking forward to are special features, but if youve ever seen their bluray versions the picture is incredbily soft and dull for Blu-Rays, not a BIG CHANGE from their dvd counterparts, i own the dvd and blurays.

 

I am actually looking forward to the AMerican Releases though. Apparently Sony are releasing Blu-Rays themselves, I hope sony does their own Remastering print, because im not such a fan of toho's soft transfers. And yes I know hedorah, sea monster etc, those titles that just got licensed are using the toho transfers too, but again atleast they have english subtitles. Looking forward to american releases.

I'm following the American releases very closely. I have a thread right here that's compiled all the upcoming American releases on Bluray in addition to other monster movies:

I'll be updating the information as more of it comes, but I'm practically circling any new info like a shark.

As for Toho's HD transfers, it's actually a great transfer... on Japanese TVs... Apparently Japanese contrast levels are different than that of American contrast levels so apparently the discs will look a lot softer on our televisions. I'm no expert on the subject, but I've read that's what the issue was with Destroy All Monsters and other Toho Blurays being viewed in the States.

I'm with you on Sony's mastering though. Their Godzilla DVDs, despite the lack of effort put into the audio/features, were gorgeous.

Even though I don't have a blu-ray player this is good news! Godzilla is finally getting the releases it deserves.
