Sperhauk was excited that he found a cheap used copy of this dvd. Return of the Giant Monsters is a two movie single disc package from Retromedia. It's insultingly priced at $19.95. RotGM is the US TV version of Gamera vs Gyaos. It was the second feature, The Magic Serpent, that was the prize and what a piece of work it is. Monsters, samuri and ninjas all tossed into the wok and stir fried until most of the color fell off. It's a pretty poor copy of a giant monster movie that you can not find easily. Maybe in Japan but not the western world. It's an American International Television Print. This guy used to see it on tv in the past. I like the past. Less obligations. TMS has several titles listed on IMDb. Kairyu daikessen is the Japanese title. It was also called Battle of the Dragons, Froggo and Droggo, Grand Duel in Magic, and Ninja Apocalypse. There are unfortunately no where near e'nuf monsters in the film. After the opening sea monsters attack the boatman scene there isn't much until the slam bang ending. The giant toad and the sea serpent battle it out pushing most of the castle down. It's a pretty rip snortin' scene. The ninja fighting is okay. The dubbing is good enough to tell a story and bad enough to make you laugh. I'd get one of these if I could find one used cheap.
Mike brought a copy of Big Boobs Buster. It's a 1990 Japanese soft core movie set in a high school. A young girl is upset that the guys like girls with big boobs. She kidnaps some of the big boobed girls, ties them up and takes impressions of their boobs. If these large breasted babes don't leave the boys alone she will show everyone the casts of their boobs. Luckily it was only 43 minutes. About 20 minutes into the film it had turned into Chariots of Eggs. There was a lot of running. And topless girls. The girls were cute. It's nice to know that the soft core porn in Japan is as poor as the soft core porn here.
To finish we watched the Zombie episode from the English series Danger 50,000 volts! hosted by Nick Frost. He's one of the guys from Shaun of the Dead. The big filthy mouthed guy. Here, he's joined by his SotD co-star Simon Pegg and they treat the zombies as if they were real and show how to deal with them. It took me a while to get into it but I got a laugh about half way through. I was tired and needed to go to bed. Just like now.
