Viewing Notes

Been a few years since I’ve seen this. Never been a big fan mainly due to the intentional humor injected during the first half and the piss poor Kong. But I’ve only seen the American release by Universal which is a different cut with added scenes shot in Hollywood. Noticed that the score is the same score from Creature from the Black Lagoon and not Ifukube’s score, which I have on CD.

I really need to track down the original JP release. It’s not vastly different but still different enough esp. in order of the action and subplotting. Also I really dislike the dub they did. It’s so damn stupid.
