This will be a specialty thread I'm sure, but for giant monster fans looking for something a little different, I recommend these flicks wholeheartedly. They're samurai stories mixed with a little mysticism and a great take on giant monsters in the form of a statue that comes to life. Great effects.

As for the Blu-ray, I've only skimmed the first film, but Mill Creek seems to have taken the criticism over their Gamera trilogy to heart. The first disc holds both movies in a BD-50 instead of cramming them on a 25. Grain looks clean, and processing doesn't look apparent. I'll have time later this week to fully dissect them, but I think this set will prove positive.

I'm excited for this release too. Should arrive today. Haven't watched them since the the non-anamorphic DVD release from 2002. So these should be a huge upgrade.

I'd honestly never heard of them, until I saw the thread on BD.com.

Did a little investigating and I'm quite looking forward these.

Great price too.

I watched the first one last night. It looked reasonably good, this will be about as good as they ever get. These movies used to be on TV a lot when I was a kid. They are very slow movies. Still, they are worth having for Kaiju fans.

Watched the first two all the way through, and I'm impressed. These aren't the highest resolution sources, but they are impressive given the cult status. Return has a rather nasty scratch down the right side of the film late, and it looks like there was some clean-up applied because of how faded it is, but it lasts for 10 minutes. The rest is quite detailed. There are elements of the costuming I've never noticed before, and these are free of overbearing manipulation.

Part of me would love to see a re-release of the Gamera trilogy with better encodes now!
