I have the Echo Bridge release, but I'm glad Lionsgate is re-releasing this for people who missed it the first time around.
What kind of person do you think I am?

It's good that Lionsgate is rereleasing it, since I never got around to getting it before (something else always took priority), even if it ends up being the same disc...

I'll keep my Echo Bridge edition, at the end of the day it's not something I'm going to watch over and over again, its just another Godzilla movie to me. Not the worst, not the best.

Compared to most of the recent Godzilla flicks I've been catching from the library, it is closer to the best. Man, those late 70's ones are too cheesy/campy to believe. It's incredible how much I loved them and now just laugh at them. The 90's era I had never seen and am seriously grooving on, but I still think Biolante is the best of them I've caught so far. Great news for those who missed it. Bad news for scalpers and those who paid 20-30$.

I feel the opposite. The 70s are way, way, way more entertaining than the 90s films, which are a chore to slog through. (I really dislike them.) Man, they really pumped out a bunch of misfires in that decade. Biollante (from the 80s) is a good one, though. If there's a significant picture upgrade I might consider buying the Lionsgate disc...

I paid a pretty penny for the EB Blu with the corrected soundtrack but what's done is done, no big deal.

I don't want to be a nitpicky butthole, but I can't help myself. There are no late '70s Godzilla movies, the last one was released in '75 so they'd be early '70s.

That aside, I can't really agree, I think Godzilla was at his most fun in the '70s. It even comes close to beating the '60s for me in terms of pure entertainment value.

Yeah, the '90s is by far the worst decade for Godzilla. Don't know how it could go so wrong after the promising '80s.

One thing Lionsgate can easily improve on is the cover art, EB's was pretty hideous.

Precisely why I went with the latter over the former.

Huh, guess I'm stuck with the defective version... tbh, I probably never would have noticed if I hadn't read this. Maybe I'll just listen to it in stereo from now on since that's probably the original mix anyway.

Anyhow, as others have said, it's likely all Lionsgate could do is use better encoding on their disc. Toho's HD masters of the Godzilla films are infamously poor, mediocre at best, and they're notoriously strict about letting foreign releases be "better" than their own in any way (to discourage importing since North America and Japan share a BD region and movies are far more expensive in Japan).

About the defective audio on the Echo Bridge disc: I don't have a sound system so the only audio output I have are the speakers on my TV. Will I notice the audio defect just playing it on my TV, or would I need to have a sound system to notice it?

You would only notice it if you had a 5.1 sound system.

Are you serious? The Millenium series was awful!

It wasn't great but I disliked the 90s more.
Just a fly in the ointment. The monkey in the wrench. The pain in the ass.

Yes, I'm completely serious. They're much more competently made and generally just have more life and fun in them.

Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, the best Millennium film, is far superior to any of the '90s installments. Even Final Wars, which is probably the worst Millennium entry as a movie, is a mess but a hilarious and wildly entertaining mess. Which is more than can be said for Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, the worst Heisei film.
