Attack of the Galactic Monsters
I had heard of it before, but having watched it now I am really kind of enjoying it. it's a mishmash of "Zone Fighter" episodes and the Toho movie "War In Space (1977)" (which improves "War" but doesn't help Zone Fighter).
the quality isn't very good, which makes me wonder when it was made. obviously in the time of VHS only copies, and a few generations down as well. pretty sure it's a fan edited movie, though the music has been redone. pretty sure the dubbing is from the international version of "War".
I had never seen the Garoga Terro-beasts being encapsulated before. how did I miss that in Zone Fighter? I've watched that show more than once. it doesn't appear as if Zone Fighter shows up in the "movie", just Godzilla fighting the Terro Beasts.
now we just need some enterprising fan with the skill and knowledge to re-do this with higher quality materials. it would be a fun little project.
I like it. it's kind of like getting a new original series Godzilla movie. and that is way better than anything we've gotten in the last 25 years. ps. oh come on, making Zone a badguy? missing the boat here! not a real surprise, so all the people that hate the fact Godzilla appeared on tv can rejoice now!
