I always say that Decade was a great "shop window" for showing off the previous Riders' suits and powers. Some great music and great fights too. One of the best opening episodes to a Rider series. I even think the plot works quite well as they go through the initial nine worlds, even if it does go to pieces afterwards. Oh, and it's World of Amazon is better than either the original Showa Amazon or recent Amazons TV series.Kamen Rider Decade might not be good, but it's not nearly as bad as people make it out it be. Could be better, but still not that bad.
I've always thought Den-O's TV series was great, but the tons of movies and crossovers after the show's end are completely unnecessary, and the main reason why people are tired of Den-O.[Snip!]
That's what they call Shin Godzilla in english, what's the problem?Godzilla Resurgence?
Because Revenge of Iris ended on a cliffhanger and Gamera had no reason to blast his arm off and Vs. Barugon and Vs. Gyaos are kaiju classics.Also, how the hell can you put any Showa Gamera film over Revenge of Iris?
You've never seen the whale kaiju movie with the rape scene or Warning From Space, I can tell.The Brave is the worst movie Daiei ever produced in their Kaiju films.
Holding back?! Oh no, please, do go on! Don't hold back on our behalf. Make multiple posts if you need to. We need to see the FULL dissertation on all this and more. I've been on PINS and NEEDLES hoping that you'll talk about why Kamen Rider Build is terrible again for the 3rd or 4th time. We're all just DYING to hear what you have say.I am holding back a lot due to character limits.
And reported.You make Trump look intelligent.
Sarcastically asking for things is still asking for things.I've been on PINS and NEEDLES hoping that you'll talk about why Kamen Rider Build is terrible again for the 3rd or 4th time.
No, it's really not. Sarcasm is an expression of the OPPOSITE thing you want. I still believe this is the right place for some of your opinions, especially the ones that very few people agree with. But it's up to you on how much of those opinions you actually share here.And reported.

lmao Oh, you know me so well. Not sure why he apparently reported me, but that's okay, snowflakes are adorable.but if Kain really wanted to insult or attack you, I think he could do worse.
I suppose I can better understand the Decade hate now that I'm watching Zi-O and finding the way that it treats previous heroes to be really grating.Decade is best enjoyed if you're familiar with Multiverse theory/tropes, and therefore expect changes going in to it. And coincidentally, I agree that some parallel worlds were better than their original! Because you mentioned it, World of Amazon was interested despite the weak actor they got for him, but I would pay money to see World of Kabuto as a full show!
Aww I really liked Gamera The Brave. It really felt like they captured the "friend to all children" aspect of the character and even took it a step beyond the Showa entries without making the kids anywhere near as annoying as the old films did.Also, The Brave is the worst movie Daiei ever produced in their Kaiju films.
When I watched the film it felt like they had reached the natural end point of that story. I didn't feel disappointed as I did with, for example, the Ryuki movie. I didn't need to see him fight even more Gyaos; The narrative arc was already complete.Because Revenge of Iris ended on a cliffhanger...

IIRC Toho did originally say that the film's English language title was "Godzilla Resurgence" but it never really caught on and was eventually abandoned in favor of simply using the Japanese name. It seems that the Captain is hanging on to that early title (but yes, my British copy of the Blu Ray has 'Shin Godzilla' written on the front too so that's the name I'd use).No, they call Shin Godzilla Shin Godzilla in English.
I loved the 'Ultra Seven' series but then 'Ultraman Leo' completely destroys his character. Dan/Seven spends so much time beating up Leo that I'm tempted to claim that he was the true villain of the show. As for Leo, well I love an underdog but he spends so much time curled up in the fetal position cowering from Dan's cane that it's difficult to see him as the mighty hero who will save the world.Here's my unpopular opinion - Ultraman Leo sucks! It was boring beyond comprehension and Dan was an utter asshole. Also, they did what they did to the cast of the show because they wanted attention not because it improved the already lackluster story.
I wonder how many #MeToo stories there might be about the guy.The poster boy for bad fanservice has to be Koichi Sakamoto, who has a long history of creating unique (and often great) action scenes but then in recent years has begun insisting that every project he's directing includes an action girl wearing a tiny pair of shorts. He then spends the action scenes zooming the camera into close-ups of their thighs while they do high kicks - sometimes to the extent that you can't tell what is happening in the scene at all - just so he can leer at them. And yes, actress Mikie Hara did confirm in an interview that it's totally because he has a leg fetish and enough clout that nobody is willing to tell him to knock it off. The guy needs to get laid and stop spoiling his action scenes.
