Zigra DVD (R2)

doesn't this make the movie Gamera vs Zigra (1971) look like it would be just a great movie?

thus making the viewing experience even not as good.  Zigra was for many years one of the Grails of Japanese fandom over here in the States, since it was never released to tv by AIP.  a Titra dub could only have helped, and maybe some judicious editing.

the widescreen presentation does make it look a lot better than one might think.

Zigra does look pretty cool, overall.

That DVD cover certainly calls to mind Zigra's real-life inspiration,the goblin shark doesn't it?

yes, yes it does. I'm looking forward to the final DVD in the new set, despite it being a lousy lousy movie.
