Gamera vs. Jiger Talkback

Spinning flame-jetted turtles, space birds being chopped up like bologna, kids in shorts screaming for help...the original Gamera series was a strange mix of wacky fun!! The 90's Gamera films set a standard that other kaiju films are measured against! Discuss Gamera films here!!

This one is in danger of knocking out Gamera vs Gyaos as my favorite Showa Gamera film. Like vs. Gyaos, it doesn't feel so padded, which is my #1 complaint against the Showa Gamera films. It's basically a more lively remake of Gamera vs. Barugon. Barugon may have been a great monster, but the movie was so padded and repetitive and the human story was glum as heck to the detriment of the whole. Gamera vs, Jiger has kids going inside Gamera to fight a baby Jiger and Gamera wins by stabbing his opponent with a whistle! Much better!
