Space Battleship Yamato (2010)

If Uchû Senkan Yamato a.k.a. Star Blazers is one of your childhood anime darling, then prepare for the eye-watering moment as we finally able to see it as a live action movie.
For the first timers, you might see it as a Jap’s version of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ complete with all its J-movie cheesiness. You might think it’s not original. But for your information, Yamato was first made back in 1974. Four years before the original Galactica TV series!

My Rating: 6/10

  1. Yamato also came out before Star Wars. Battlestar Galactica, and a lot of other shows and movies, owe a lot to Yamato. If it weren’t for Yamato’s Black Tigers we would have no X-wing Fighters, TIE Fighters or Colonial Vipers. The Death Star looks strangely similar to the Comet Empire. R2-D2 is utterly inspired by Analyzer (IQ9). It goes on and on.
