Love the movie, hate the dub..
on 30 January 2014
I am not sure if I am in the minority but I am one of those who prefers the original English dub. I wish this was an option on the blu-ray as while I don't mind watching in Japanese (prob the best way anyways) this is one of those films I want my son to watch one day and I would prefer the original dub.
The transfer itself looks amazing, a small amount of grain as to be expected from an 88 movie but some of the palette really stands out.. The scene where the guy gets shot by the cops (before the child screams and shatters everything around him) struck me almost as much as the first time I watched it..
Abridged version = A truly beautiful and mind bending film, mired by lack of original English dub.
