"These are both ADV releases, yet Destroy All Monsters (DAM) is as barebone as can be, and Gamera Guardian Of The Universe (GGOTU) is nicely loaded with bonus features. The DAM dvd has no scene selecton, it a has no subtitles, it a has no Japanese audio, it a has no trailers, it a has no special features, it a has no knickers, it is a knock-ed. (I hope a Benny Hill fan reads this). The GGOTU dvd is loaded with special features like a press conference, interviews, behind the scenes stuff, theatrical and tv trailers, and other stuff. It has english subtitles and a choice of Japanese or English audio. Destroy All Monsters is presented in 2:35.1 Tohoscope. Gamera is listed as 16:9 LB. Possibly a 1:85.1 aspect ratio. As for the movies themselves, I prefer DAM, it's just a lot more fun. But seeing a Gamera movie with a large budget is pretty cool too. One final thing, the DAM dvd plays in a continuous loop. When it ends it automatically starts again."

"Great movies, but the DvDs don't offer much. I've never watched these on DvD, but they are definitely the old discs repackaged. Gamera is the only reason I bought this 2 for 1 set and that disc offers plenty of special features.
Both DvDs are non-anamorphic and the DAM DvD is a single layer disc with no chapter stops. The packaging says 16:9 on the back cover, but it's 4:3. Very misleading. The one thing I do love about the DAM DvD is the cover art. I love it. If they ever release this film in a "digitally remastered in HD special edition set", they must keep the art."

"i just ordered it and what can i say two of my favorite kaiju in one. first with DAM (destroy all monsters) i love the art work in the front of the box and the disc is a bit bland but im not gonna complain about the disc. im talkin about the movie its pretty damn good i loved all monsters in it but their is one thing when you see gorrosaurus coming up from the ground in france they call it baragon. other than that its pretty good and another thing is that varan came up in one second i wanted more action with varan. ok now with gamera the box work is badass and i loved the movie. oh yea when you recieve your oder you get this little card and its just the catalog for the company. i am gonna order the catalog for it. i did like the servouis forom this company and i will buy from them in the future"
