Managed to catch the live-action movie of 'Space Battleship Yamato' with my friends, on big screen after much anticipation and having heard that this movie actually topped box office in Japan when it was released December last year. I guessed I have pinned my hope too high. I'm familiar with the ship's design since it didn't change much from my impression I get from magazine and toys. The CGI of this movie is similar or better than those recent Ultraman movies but it's still some steps behind 'Transformers' Movie, at least this is how I felt. The movie started off pretty cool with battle scenes in space and all goes well when Space Battleship Yamato managed to escaped earth until their first 'Warp' aka space fold (Very Macross feel to me). At some points halfway through the movie, the direction kind of lost focus with cheesy scenes simmered into it, which explained the lengthy movie of more than two hours. At the cinema, it's probably half filled with galz who know nothing about sci-fi war movie but there just to see Takuya Kimura. There were always commotions from those galz whenever Takuya was in intimate scenes, oh gosh! As a whole, I think the movie is fairly decent and worth my money.

You really are a busy guy bro. It's nice to watch live action movie related to anime or manga. I'm hoping there would one day be a live-action movie of Macross.

Oh yes, you were talking about about it that day when we met up. HJL still have stock of it but it's kind of out of my budget.

>> chrismandesign
Frankly, I have not watched the anime before watching the movie and I'm surprised that you have a some knowledge and even gasaphon of the anime. Do share with us in your blog bro.

It seems my memory has fail me. Thx for the link to recall my memory. Battleship Yamato is known as Star Blazers in western continents.

>> Tachikawa
Time will soon change peoples' perception and you I was stunned by Singaporeans' respond to anime and manga today and ten years ago.

>> bluedrakon
There's so far no Yamato's DVD at shops over at our side. I supposed it will be released shortly after the movie. I will be interested to get the dvd of 'World Invasion : Battle LA' to watch it again.

>> chubbybots
Hoping, the dvd will is in giftset with souvenirs like a toy or something. That will make it more collectible.

Tachikawa said...

Hahaha...Yes Dennis senpai...
After years, we are the one that
are support Japanese culture...
Maybe in 10 years, Japanese culture would be accepted...
