Gamera vs. Guiron (1969)

Film number five has a a trio of plucky pre-teens investigating a spaceship that landed not too far from their location. Plot A leads effortlessly to plot B, resulting in the blade-nosed Guiron going pointy-head to turtle-head with the titular, heroic kaijū (who spends more time getting to the actual battle than he does engaging in it, but at least he made it, right?) There’s flame-breath and city destruction for kids; the aforementioned space-ladies in figure-hugging, spangly polyester for dads; and, no, sorry, nothing of note for moms.

2½ irregular waves out of 5
