In case you were curious as to how Gamera spends his free time

This is nothing earthshaking, just some really pretty HD video of the moon, as taken by India's current Chandrayaan mission. Very soothing to watch - if you're having a stressful day just stop, take 2 minutes off, and see the craters slide by like ocean waves. If you wanna skip to the end you'll see the really cool bit, as the orbiter approaches the terminator (the line where day meets night) and the moon's surface disappears in a honeycomb of shadows.

I don't know why the opening text is Japanese. You'd need the ask Ms. Riofrio, the Babe in the Universe, from whom I stole this. Personally, I find it adds a real Gamera vibe to the whole video, as if our little turtle friend in doing a lunar fly-by to pass the time.

Great scenery but not much of a plot. Three stars.

(Very calming though. I love it.)

well, it just begs the question did you take the girls to see Monsters vs. Aliens yet?

That made me laugh out loud, Meno (I refuse to type LOL). Funny.

Nancy, the setting is great, but there's not much atmosphere. Chortle, chortle. Yuk, yuk.

Well, Daze, we were looking for it whilst wandering aimlessly around the SW durig spring break, but no dice. I'm very disappointed t didn't come out n the summer, so we cold see it t the drive-in. PERFECT drive-in movie.
