To start with, this is a 2 disc set with 3 movies on each disc. The discs are one sided, so that's good. Each movie has only 4 chapters scene select. Now as far as aspect ratio is concerned, 5 of the 6 movies are presented in 1.33:1 standard full screen. Only Return of The Giant Monsters is presented in 2.35:1 widescreen. I suspect the print for that one is from Shout! Factory double feature vs Gyaos/ vs Viras. It seems the only thing they did was paste a large title card of Return of the Giant Monsters over the original Japanese title. Gammera The Invincible, War of The Monsters, Destroy All Planets, and Attack Of The Monsters appear to be the same prints used by Alpha Video. Gamera vs Monster X is from whatever source it came from. What bothers me is the opening of the Gamera dn dn dn dn Gamera dn dn dn dn is omitted from Gammera The Invincible. If you have an interest in Gamera and don't have any dvds this is a good place to start. 6 movies for a very low price is a pretty good deal, but if you already have all the Gamera movies on better dvds then you really don't need this set. Before I forget, these are the AIP dubs. The bonus feature: The Monster Files is just an on-screen 1 page per monster written description.

This DVD set is decent. Not for the monster movie enthusiast/purist like myself. 5 of these 6 movies are not widescreen, which is good if you're looking to re-experience your days watching these movies during "Creature Double Feature". However, these full screen movies look like they are digitized directly from VHS versions of the films themselves. I would know, I've been putting my Godzilla tapes to DVD. The quality looks about the same, decent but washed out and with some grain.

Gamera vs. Gyaos aka Return of the Giant Monsters is the only movie on this DVD that even looks remotely "remastered".

That said, for the price, and the number of movies included, if you aren't worried about quality you will enjoy this purchase. Each disc has only one side, and has packed 3 movies on each disc (2 in total). This may explain why many of the movies are such low quality visually. But again, if quality isn't your concern for these movies then you'll be proud to say you own 6 Gamera movies among your DVD selection.

If you are a huge kaiju movie buff like myself, it's best to avoid this collection and save up your cash for the Shout! Factory DVD's which come in Widescreen AND have both the English dub and the original Japanese versions.

if you're browsing amazon for good deals on a bunch of gamera films in one set, this may or may not not be for you. It really depends most (i think) on one's preference for dubbing or original Japanese with subtitles. I do like the dubbing, just because it adds to the campiness of it all, but it's important to know that the ones in this collection are all dubbed, often quite badly, with no option for original japanese. and while 6 films for 5 bucks is great, this set DOES NOT have Gamera v. Zigra and Gamera The Super Monster on it, which it should. These two aforementioned films are available as a double-feature disc elsewhere on amazon, but for three times the price of this six film set. It's not like the two that are missing here come from the next Gamera era either, they came later than the first 6, but had the same director as 5 of the films in the WotM collection. so that's kinda b.s. But if you like dubbed Kaijus, get this.

OR. IF YOU DO NOT CARE FOR THE CAMPY DUBBY BEAUTY OF DUBBING. You could have a look at the Gamera Legacy Collection. like 9 bucks for 11 movies, all Gameras from '65 to '99. But here's the catch (or the uber awesome bonus for the more purist personalities) the ones on the Legacy pack are all in Japanese with subtitles, with no other options. So, if you like the movies in their original Japanese form, and have no interest in dubbing or American cuts of the film for their American releases, get away from the War of the Monsters set. Go buy the Legacy collection. get the good deal that we dub-loving people cannot take advantage, of because the lack of satisfaction that we would receive in the category of dub-loving.

it's a tough decision for a lot of people.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality May 28, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Blurry imagery. Badly formatted. Washed-out colors. Poor audio. Looks like it was copied from
someone's el cheapo vhs tape. Check out the "Gamera Legacy Collection", also offered on
Amazon, instead.
