Ranking the Monsters: Gamera vs. Barugon (1966) & Gamera vs. Gyaos (1967)

Gamera makes his welcome return to Ranking the Monsters as Calvin and Stephen tackle vs. Barugon and vs. Gyaos. These early Gamera films show a franchise looking for an identity and are a fine chance to reflect on the kaiju film as a genre, and to debate the overriding concern that all these films are the same. Join us as the friend to all children is once again scientifically ranked.

Join kaiju-superfan Stephen and kaiju-curious Calvin as they watch and rank every monster movie ever made. RanKing of Monsters is a brave attempt to finally answer that age old question: what is the best kaiju movie? Each episode focuses on a movie, or two, as the pair take monster cinema far too seriously, and not seriously at all, in equal measure. Come for some sincere film criticism and stay for two pals chatting nonsense about actors in rubber suits.
