 Voyage Into Space
I just picked up a copy of Voyage Into Space from the Monsters In Motion storefront out here in SoCal. I totally dug this flick as a kid. Watching it for the first time as an adult, some 35+ years later, I can now see the problems with taking 4 episodes of a television series and editing them together to produce a 90-minute movie. And I also was surprised at the level of violence directed at the young boy—an assassin actually shoots Johnny Sokko with a sniper rifle!

But this movie must be something of a high-water mark for kaiju-man-in-rubber-suit action; there are so many hilariously fantastic battles in this flick!

After watching it again I still totally dig it. Giant Robot's sacrifice at the end still brought a tear to my eye!

Glad you were able to relive the experience Kenny! It's always so fun to track down a fond old memory like that and try to experience it again all these years later. True, many of the flicks don't live up to our childhood memories of them, but i think that's all part of the fun! That Monsters in Motion place sounds cool!

 Re: Voyage Into Space
this movie is a blast. wish they would put out a nice version of it. i too have a copy...

the funny thing is the entire series is out on an official dvd release but the movie isn't.

as nutty as the movie is i like it better than the show. probably just because i never saw the show when i was a kid.
