Well unfortunately I haven't seen many of the Gamera movies, so I can only list my first two choices; Gamera: Guardian of the Universe and Gamera vs Guiron.

My #1 favorite Gamera movie will always be GOTU. Like with GvsMG74, it was the first one I saw out of the series. I think G2 is a close second.

Hmm....Gamera films while most aren't fair production quality films, it does have gems that even match against both Godzilla and Ultraman.

1. Gamera: GOTU
2. Gamera 2
3. Gamera 3

As no surprise I found the Gamera Trilogy to be the absolute best films, and rightfully deserve to be in my top three. However I find Gamera: GOTU to be my absolute favorite, it serves as a wonderful Gamera origin film, and Gamera and Gyaos's final battle, how well executed, well paced, and amazing it was holds it at the very top. Not to say that the other films lacked that, but they did to some extent to me at least.

4. GAMERA/Gamera the Invincible: The original Gamera movie makes 4th place, it's a pretty decent debut for Gamera and although it tries to mirror Godzilla, as its own thing its pretty unique.

5. Gamera the Brave: Another Gamera movie that's pretty decent, it's necessarily an origin film but it's more of a reboot. Trying to reboot Gamera in the veins of a hero and as a protector, an understandable direction, and the film really shows it. The angle with children can be a bit too much at certain points, very like Rebirth of Mothra series, but I enjoy the film none the less. Great effects, satisfying monster battles, okay pacing, and decent set-up for a new Gamera franchise. If only it succeed. Oh well, hopefully the next upcoming Gamera movie does better.

6. Gamera vs. Gyaos

7. Gamera vs. Barugon

8.  Gamera vs. Viras

9. Gamera Super Monster

10. Gamera vs. Guiron

Ah! Typo, I meant to put Guiron, not exactly the best of the films, but entertaining enough!

Would it be alright if I post a top five favorite Gamera movies list instead of a top ten list?. Smile

If your list only goes to five, than I don't see any real problem with that. Gamera doesn't exactly have the best vault of monster films, so if your interest doesn't reach that far than it'll be understandable.
