Gamera 3: The Awakening of Irys

If you grew up watching the cheezy Godzilla movies of the 1970s, you'll be astonished to see this modern-day take on the giant monster genre, considered by many to be the best man-in-a-rubber-suit flick ever made. Japan's favorite fire-breathing turtle returns to wreak havoc in this 2000 outing. Seems Gamera accidentally killed a young girl's family on a previous Tokyo-stomping outing. Vowing revenge, our young heroine forms a psychic bond with a squid-bird-thing (hey, sounds like a good idea) and trains it to hate Gamera. The result (of course) is a monstrous mano-a-mano battle on the streets of Tokyo. The effects are jaw-dropping, and fan fave director Shusuke Kaneko (Godzilla: Giant Monster All-Out Attack) doesn't skimp on the action. A blast from start to finish! 108 minutes
