Narrator: There are 200 billion stars present in the Milky Way Galaxy. Our sun and its nine planets consist of just one solar system within the galaxy.

Memories, memories
14 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

My score mainly reflects my feelings when I first watched this movie, more than 30 years ago. Super monster was one of my favorite movies when I was a little boy back in the 80s. Yes, it is corny, yes if you watch it now you may think it is garbage, yes the monsters now look like rubber toys, and the airplanes are made of plastic, but 35 years ago I paid to see it in the theater 10 times in a row and it used to feed my boyish imagination for many a night. The song is forever stuck in my head and I often catch myself humming it even now. It is a great flick for the right people and brings memories of different times. Go Gamera! :)
