Space Battleship Yamato


Yuki: Saving Earth won’t matter, nothing will matter if you’re not there with me! 
Kodai: But I will be! If I save the Earth, I’ll be there in every tree, flower, and blade of grass! 

If you’re looking for cheese, look no further than the live action remake of the Japanese anime
Space Battleship Yamato.  It has a 55% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes (no actual critics seem to have bothered) and a 6.1 rating on IMDB. Make no mistake; this is a terrible movie, but one not without entertainment value if you’re into that sort of thing. The acting (voice and otherwise) is about as deadpan as it gets, some of the scenes played for dramatic effect are but-gustingly funny, and I have a feeling Wanda, the kids, and I will be going around doing the Earth Defense Force salute to one another for days to come.  At two hours and twenty minutes, no  doubt it would get tiresome in a single sitting, but watching it over three nights as we did was a hoot.  They should bring back MST3K for this one.
