Lurchi - 2010-12-02 I would have loved this movie as a kid.
(Memo to Japan: you lost World War Two)
FABIO - 2010-12-02 I only every saw on episode of this, and I think it was one of the last ones where Japan's cowardly political leaders where on their way to sign the surrender on the alien's floating ship in Tokyo bay...until glorious batleship Yamato showed up!
They didn't even try to disguise it.
Bort - 2010-12-02 But then there are episodes like the one where they destroy the entire civilization on the bad guys' home planet, and the general concensus is that they didn't want to do it, but the bad guys started the war and brought it upon themselves. So I don't know that it's the feel-good Japanese revisionist view of WWII that you expect it to be.
freedoom - 2010-12-02 I've never seen the anime but that captain in this seems very apathetic.
Xenocide - 2010-12-02 Japanese captains are expected to keep a calm, level head in any situation. Sometimes that means he may seem a little detached. Sometimes that means he may be somewhat cold. Sometimes that means the brass promoted a guy with Alzheimer's. It's the price you pay.
Nikon - 2010-12-02 This looks better than any of the later Star Wars movies (from the 70's and 80's).
Hooker - 2010-12-02 Are there going to be bored people staring blankly in the upper-right corner for the whole movie? That seemed to really undercut the tension.
Xenocide - 2010-12-02 Little does our brave crew know that sinister forces are watching their every move. Oh sure, they're keeping quiet now, content to watch and plot from the security of their shiny gold box on the upper right hand corner.
But any moment now, one of them is going to move to the bottom of the screen and tell the pilots to use bombs wisely.
BHWW - 2010-12-02 There was talk of an American live-action Star Blazers film being made in the 1990's overseen by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich, yeah those two. Among the other ideas floated about, instead of the Yamamoto the sunken battleship used to make the space battleship would've been the USS Arizona.
Cowboy Funk - 2010-12-02 At least they have better hair this time.
OgreMkIV - 2010-12-02 -2 stars for no Wave Motion Gun. That's the best part!
garcet71283 - 2010-12-02 Dammit. Why can't America make any decent space operas anymore?
