Toho's Golden Age

The films in this set,Mothra,The H-Man and Battle in Outer Space were released during what is commonly referred to by Western fans as the Golden Age of Toho.This is the period when the special effects were superb,the story telling was excellent and the movies were just plain fun.Not to say that Toho's future releases weren't as good,but the movies from this period just has a certain magic to them. All films have the option to watch in either the English dubbed version,or the Japanese version with English subtitles.My only problem was that on the "Battle in Outer Space" disc,it seems that the subtitles were based off of the dub.Thankfully with the other two movies,the subtitles were from the original Japanese version and not based off of the dubbing. This set is a must have for any Godzilla fan or anyone who enjoys scifi classics.

Toho Monster Mash

I have been waiting for these excellent Toho Sci-Fi movies to be released on DVD & my request have been awarded. It is wonderful that they are presented in Tohoscope widescreen & also in the japanese (original) & edited/dubbed American version.


Now, I've added these to my japanese kaiju dvd collection (mostly Godzilla).

Great TOHO !

Three great Toho flicks in one package. Most everyone is familiar with Mothra who like Godzilla ravages city and countryside alike. The Battle in Outer Space is like many other space dramas produced in the same era. So-so dialog and acting tied together with great models and space settings make it an enjoyable film. I think the treasure in this set is the H-Man. More of a mystery story than your average monster movie, I find it enjoyable even after multiple viewings. Good prints and sound help make this collection a must for every Toho fan. If you're not fan now, you will be after watching these three.

Past or Present?

I don't know how the person who I bought it for liked it. It's for her birthday , and she likes science fiction.
