For those that like their giant Japanese monster action to have a little more Kurosawa-esque classiness to it, the Daimajin movies of the 1960’s were just that.
Many widely consider Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris the best daikaiju movie since the original Godzilla. Since the first two are already on Blu-ray, it only makes that this final installment in the epic 1990’s Gamera trilogy finally get its blu due, as well as a certain giant stone samurai.
Everyone knows Godzilla, most everyone knows Gamera, and lately even Guilala has been getting its due, but how many of you are familiar with Daimajin, the giant stone samurai statue that came to life to unleash hell upon evil shoguns in three Daiei films back in the Sixties? The giant stone samurai is roaring back to life this fall on Japanese TV.
