I went to see the Space Battleship Yamato movie this weekend. While I didn’t grow up on the original cartoon the way many Japanese did, I have had a fair amount of vague exposure. I can, for instance, hum the theme song. And as the live-action preview has been playing before every movie I’ve seen the past few months, I was pretty exited to see it.
I hope it gets released in America as well – I want it to be big. I want it to be the next Star Wars (original trilogy) and Star Trek and every sci-fi show you’ve ever loved rolled into one. It deserves to be big – it is made of pure undiluted Epic. The cast is great, and the special effects are awesome.
