|ultra cool poster!|
of course, it was the original US dub that was aired. the first time I could have seen this movie was as a kid over Christmas in WV, where it was given a prime 8 PM slot on WDCA Channel 20 in the evening. however, family plans and poor aerial reception deep in the boonies meant I had to have fun but not watching tv for two hours that evening.
probably better off, because as good as this movie is, I might have been bored til the final battle. I can appreciate the philosophy and speculation a lot more now that I am a wee bit older. it takes it's time telling it's story and that's a good thing. there is a lot of talk at the beginning, so it's also nice to see a giant robot show up here and there! good ol Mogera, just nothing like it anywhere.
the new DVD is nice, but I miss the original dub. and the awesome trailer!
