This review is from: Godzilla Collection [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This is a cheap and cheerful box set featuring some of the best and one of the worst Godzilla movies from the Showa era. The only purpose this really has is for introductory purposes. You'll be able to decide whether you like Godzilla and want to see more of him from this, though I feel it should have been slightly larger and I would have chosen a few movies from each of the 3 eras for this compilation.
What you get is:
Godzilla, King of the Monsters (6/10)
Godzilla Raids Again (10/10)
Mothra vs Godzilla (10/10)
Ghidorah, The Three Headed Monster (10/10)
Invasion of the Astro Monster (10/10)
All Monsters Attack (1/10)
Terror of Mechagodzilla (10/10)
You get both Americanized and Original subtitled versions of each films to suit whatever preference you have. The newer version of the box set is horrible featuring 2 standard DVD cases in a slipcover, the original version with a separate case for each one and a big box over it was so much better and you could also take them out and put them in order with the rest of your collection should you get more but it's probably pretty rare now and you'd be better off just buying them separately.
Should you get this box set, for introduction to the other eras I would recommend, Godzilla vs Biollante, Godzilla vs King Ghidorah, Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla II and Godzilla vs Destoroyah for the Heisei era and Godzilla: Final Wars for the Millennium series.
