ok, so this is all coming from the top of my head
hikari sentai maskman (tv) - this was actually shown in sb anime club a couple of years ago. a group of lovable young heroes use a giant robot and the power of meditation to fight against an evil empire of underground monsters who want to conquer the surface world. more than any other super sentai season i’ve watched, i really felt a bond towards the characters growing over the course of the series
dengeki!! strada 5 (tv) - a show from the 70s that actually has very few fantasy elements. it’s about a bunch of secret agents, one of whom has psychic powers. they fight against the terrorist organisation big nova in 13 episodes that are full to the brim with violence and insanity.
sekai ninja sen jiraiya (tv) - kind of like a live action version of g-gundam, but with ninja instead of mecha? also, their interpretation of what constitutes a ninja is incredibly loose. for example, there’s an english ninja who’s literally just a knight on horseback.
lady battlecop (movie) - we also watched this in anime club once. it’s a low budget straight to video robocop knock off, but this time robocop is a woman
godzilla vs biollante (movie) - the 80s and 90s godzilla movies have some of the best special effects of all time, and biollante specifically is probably the best monster effect to ever appear in a movie
zeiram (movie) - tough lady bounty hunter comes to earth in pursuit of a malicious humanoid bioweapon. meets two earthmen who become her temporary sidekicks with no lame tacked-on romantic elements. generally just a great movie all round.
