GAMERA – GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE

I know, I know, I know…but Li’l F got hooked on Japanese giant-rubber-suit-monster movies when he first saw Godzilla, and every so often big F likes to revisit his youth. The parthenon of “Kaiju eiga” (what the Japanese call these films) is full of silly, improbable (but lovable) monsters, but none sillier or more improbable (or more lovable) than Gamera, the giant turtle that spins through the air like a rocket-propelled frisbee.  This is the first of a re-imagined Gamera series; it will be the last I’ll watch.  They say you can never go home again. In this case, they’re right.

FF= 4.5 (I started off FF-ing between the monster sightings, then found myself FF-ing through the monster-fu)
