Zen Writer, Good to see another dai kaiju fan on here. Have you seen GMK: Godzilla, Mothra, King Gidorah - Giant All Out Monsters Attack (hahha yes, that is the name). It was fairly recent and directed by the guy who did the newer Gamera films. It is very good.. probably the best Godzilla film of the new series. Baragon makes an appearance and he rocks. Good source for Godzilla info is: http://clubtokyo.org/monsterzero/ There is some new crazy Thai movie coming out about a giant bird like monster. The Korean movie you refer to (Yongary 2000?) was remade a second time to add special effects. The first version (2000?) was released in North America on DVD....it had a cheesy rip off cover of the American Godzilla. Bottom line, find GMK if you havent seen it. DUNK1

Nah havent seen mechagodzilla 3 yet.. had a chance to rent japanese version several times, but too lazy. Nothing beats Gamera IMO. Have you seen the Gamera 4 fan movie? Supposedly not bad.... Gamera and Gyos with fan made CGI etc. hahahah. DUNK1

Not sure what the status is of the Gamera series. I think I know which Toho movie you are talking about (not the Orachi three headed dragon one or whatever).. it was good? i will have to check it out. DUNk1

I agree GMK is fabulous. Here in the US you can get it almost everywhere, Best Buy carries it. Godzilla vs Megagiurus is another new one. From what I understand they are working on Final War a new Godzilla film with 10 other monsters. I guess it will be the modern equivelant of Destroy All Monsters. I can remember growing up as a kid and seeing Kaiju films on TV everyday after school. Do you guys remember the War of the Gargantua? It had a brown one and a green one?

Yeah war of the garguantuas was good... My favs are Gamera 2 and 3, G vs. Hedorah (aka Smog Monster), G vs. Ebriah (aka Sea Monster) and G vs. Megalon. Unfortunately most of the new G movies kinda suck, except for GMK and G vs. Destroyah DUNK1
