Director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!) first burst on the scene with this bright, off-beat tale of an unconventional ballroom dancer who partners with a clueless beginner in an attempt to win the Australian Pan Pacific Championships and show the Ballroom Confederation that they are wrong when they say, "there are no new steps!"

Uncut, uncensored, and undubbed, the original “Monster of Mass Destruction” returns to the big screen like you’ve never seen him before, fully restored with 40 minutes of unseen footage and completely revised subtitles.
Japan | 1995 | 103 Minutes
The final film of the Heisi era (aka the "Vs. Series") finds the monster's nuclear core on the road to meltdown, just as Godzilla's must face his most powerful enemy, a nefarious creature from the deep known as The Oxygen Destroyer. This was originally intended to be the final Godzilla film from Toho, until 1998's American version caused such outrage that they quickly resuscitated the series.
Japan | 2001 | 105 Minutes
Pre-show Godzilla burlesque performance by Scarlett O'Hairdye. Godzilla returns to badass bad-guy status, this time with the ultra-evil look of no pupils, forcing a Japanese mystic to summon the sacred Yamato (aka Earth Guardians): Mothra, Ghidorah and Baragon. Time for a giant monster smackdown!
USA | 1955 | 79 Minutes
The same year Godzilla began terrorizing American audiences, producer Charles Schneer and special-effects legend Ray Harryhausen created this atomic-mutated, radioactive, giant octopus thriller, featuring the glorious stop-motion destruction of San Francisco's greatest landmarks.
Japan | 1961 | 88 Minutes
The first female beast in the Toho giant-monster line-up, Mothra appears a giant larva worshipped by island tribesmen and guarded by inch-high twin sisters (cute!), then transforms into a beautiful giant moth and takes on the Japanese air force. Original Japanese version with English subtitles.

USA | 1933 | 100 Minutes
The original story of the 50-foot-ape remains one of the most exciting and well-made adventure movies of all time and is filled with iconic movie moments: the arrival at the mysterious Skull Island, Kong fighting with dinosaurs, Fay Wray in the giant ape's hand, and of course the final showdown at the top of the Empire State Building.
United Kingdom | 1961 | 78 Minutes
This cheesy mock-zilla feature mixes the legends of Godzilla and King Kong, Anglicizes them, and then sends a giant monster to flatten London. A quickie attempt to capitalize on the kaiju craze, Gorgo was a favorite of the cult series "Mystery Science Theatre 3000".
