My God, 30 years later you'd-a thunk this "new" Ultraman would've been able to improve on the original 1960's version. You thought men in rubber suits was cheesy? Well fuck, just wait'll you see the awful CGI effects that absolutely ruin Ultraman Tiga! Everything about Ultraman Tiga suggests it was filmed with a budget of $20.87 per show. And that's after taxes. This doesn't compare to the original Ultraman, or Johnny Sokko or Space Giants even. What it does compare to is Power Rangers and Teletubbies. Granted, most of the monsters in Tiga look better than the ones in the original series, but what's so sorely lacking here is creativity. There's no giant oil-sucking starfish bat here, or a mummy-loving winged dragon horse, or even a giant Abominable Snowgirl ghost, so clearly the makers of Ultraman Tiga weren't licking acid tabs as much as the creators of Ultraman 1960s. They were probably mainlining saccharine, from the looks of this.
