Funny you guys seem to be talking about the movies this way. I find that the
three movies are worth the watch anytime. The story was pretty easy to
understand and it serves as a great introduction to the world of Gundam. I
can attest to the fact that many of my friends understand what Gundam is all
about because of these three movies. Quite a few of them became full-blown

Since I can't really understand all Japanese except snippets of dialogue -
there isn't any way I can watch the entire 0079 series again from the
Betamax tapes I used to have them in. And my memory of the original series
was actually pretty thin when I got to college - which was when I was
reintroduced to the series once more through some friends.

I'm sorry, but I really like the Tomino movies. Those movies and the 0083
OAVs were crucial to my return to Gundam.

Sorry for the rant,
