 Re: The Return of Godzilla 1984
I'm not even sure who has the right to Godzilla 1985, last I heard, it was Anchor Bay.

Sadly, the only official release of the '84 film in theaters was the 'official' Hong Kong International version and the only video release outside of Japan was back in the 90's in the UK. Hopefully with the release of Legendary Pictures Godzilla, Toho will quit being tightwads and release their Godzilla library on Blu-Ray here in the states

Godzilla is to them what Mickey Mouse is to Disney

I guess we know that George Lucas isn't in charge of Toho, huh?

 Re: The Return of Godzilla 1984
I think Toho's reluctance to release these outside of Japan may have to do with them wanting to avoid any bootlegging of these films. Because of the new copyright laws in place in Japan, people living there don't want to get popped and sent to prison. So, by only allowing Japanese citizens to buy them, it is sort of a control issue. If a bootleg is released via a torrent site, it's easier to know whether or not the originator came from Japan.

Plus, at an average of $75 a pop to order them online and shipped stateside, the cost alone may put a damper on foreigners ordering and bootlegging.

These two remind me of Charles Grodin and Charles Bronson.
