Varan in Color!

Here’s an image of Varan in color!  This is a production still from Destroy All Monsters.  The Varan suit is pretty much beat up.  This is the first closeup I’ve seen of it.

Destroy All Monsters (Blue-ray)

I’m not blown away by the new Destroy All Monsters Blue-ray disc from Media-Blasters.  The print is so-so.  I can’t see much improvement from the “50th Anniversary of Godzilla” DVD of DAM, which also included a nice CD Soundtrack.  On this new disc, there are 5 audio options, including two English dubs, a commentary by Kaiju experts Ed Godziszewski and Steve Ryfle, and multi-channel Japanese tracks.  Some of the supplements are cool.  For some reason I like the 8mm film presentation.  DAM is one of my favorite Toho monster flicks and it features a spectacular march by Akira Ifukube and 11 Kaiju!  But you have to look quick to spot Varan.
