    This review will compare the new Mill Creek Gamera Blu-ray collection against the 4 year old Shout Factory DVD collection. EQUIPMENT USED FOR COMPARISON Samsung BD-E5900 vs. Oppo 981HD up-conversion player. PQ - Millcreeks Blu-ray is considerably clearer and brighter than the Shout Factory DVD's regardless of the fact that Mill Creek crammed 4 films onto 1 Blu-ray it still comes out on top. Colors are deeper and subtitles are crisp and clear. I ran DVD vs. Blu-ray side by side and it was very clear to me that Mill Creeks Gamera collection is far superior to that of Shout Factory visually speaking of course. *** winner Mill Creek *** AQ - Shout Factory released all the English dubs that were used in the American versions and could be toggled back & forth between dubs while also offering a very clear mono Japanese soundtrack. Mill Creeks decision to only offer the original Japanese soundtrack without the English dubs falls back on their decision to cram 4 films onto 1 disc which is a shame. Japanese with English subtitles are the only option on Mill Creeks Gamera collection yet the mono track is very clear which is no surprise since the stock used in Mill Creeks release are the very same ones used in Shout Factories Gamera collection. Shout factory came out on top due to the english dubs offered. *** winner Shout Factory *** Extra's - very sparse on both releases only offering up film trailers. *** no winner *** If it were not for the fact that Mill Creeks Gamera collection was priced so cheaply I would recommend those of you that have the Shout Factory set to skip it altogether since I hate the double-dip.... Yet the picture quality is such a large step up on the Mill Creek set that I must recommend this product to those of you that already have a set of Gamera DVD's these Blu-rays trump them in video clarity, color & contrast. I will still keep my Shout Factory set since watching those English dubs bring back warm & fuzzy creature feature memories from my childhood. Mill Creek Gamera Volume 2 is thereby recommended!

    Gamera is like the off-brand version of Godzilla. Despite Gamera looking scary, These movies are about as kid-friendly as the Godzilla movies of the 60's and 70's. I never found the kid-friendly Godzilla movies to be all that great. With that being said, I wasn't too into this series. Though, I found that the gore scenes were pretty amusing, seeing as these came across as kids movies. If you are a fan of the Godzilla movies, from the 60's and 70', I think you owe it to yourself to check this series out too.
