Gamera Fan Film: "Guardian"?

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!!

A giant radioactive lizard with atomic breath can take the serious route, but a giant turtle that shits fire and spins to fly, and protects 1 kid but takes a dump on everything else will never be considered serious...EVER

The only thing I took from this post is the language filter seems to be screwed up....

2015 is Gamera's 50th anniversary and thats a special number. Its possible that this could happen and I hope it does because then that leaves the door wide open for a Godzilla vs Gamera movie. :mrgreen:

I'd say more of a small crack. The two are still owned by different companies and if someone other than Legendary optioned Gamera, then the rights would become a real nightmare. Too many hands would be in the cookie jar for anything to ever get odne.

As long Disney doesn't buy Gamera, a foot in the door is all we need. But I know Toho will clash with any company on the project, they want the best for their image as well as Godzilla.

Half of these flicks are built on dreams, so you just sound bitter... in a speculative thread. :roll:

Godzilla vs. Gamera...remember? I was speculating a possible franchise collab if this is true and a success. :shock:

I'm still curious as to why people even want an American Gamera film? It's a concept that is so inherently Japanese that any American film would more than likely water down the elements that make Gamera unique in the first place.

IF Pixar, or Disney or Dreamworks got behind a Gamera project I could MAYBE keep an open mind about it...but it just feels pointless. Let sleeping dogs lie for a while. Even the Hesei trilogy wasn't really a massive box office draw in Japan. If we get into another kaiju boom where kaiju are as popular as super heroes at the box office I'm sure someone will make a Gamera film but there simply hasn't been a wave of successful kaiju films in forever. Even if Godzilla is successful, I don't think that will be enough to resurrect Gamera anytime soon with the lukewarm reactions to Pac Rim, King Kong and even the recent Ultraman films in Japan.

And let's not forget we already have a dark, gritty reboot of Gamera...the Hesei trilogy which is perfect if that's the direction you want to take Gamera. I really think, if there's ever another Gamera film it needs to be children friendly and somewhat in the style of Gamera the Brave or a Showa film.

People keep saying that, but i think the films that are inherently Japanese are the most recent 3 or 4, not the preceding 8 or 9 films. During that time Gamera was a "serious monster" as well as a "silly monster" but the films were all grounded in 60's scifi. These films could have taken place in any country with very minor tweaks, with the possible exception of Jiger. Now if it's the character design that people think holds the franchise back (it didnt slow down the TMNT..) thats another story.

i agree with this sentiment. Maybe "Family Friendly" more so than "Children Friendly"... as someone that now ingests far too much children's television now, i can assure you there is a difference :lol:
