I've still not gotten round to watching the original yet, mainly due to my torrent client being constantly busy with other stuff and the fact that the cocks behind Starblazers won't release it unmolested on DVD. It boggles my mind that such a historically important series is still getting such shabbby treatment in the US by its licensor.
All I keep hearing is how Nishizaki is essentially a one trick pony with his success with the original Yamato and apparently hasn't done anything since. I think all anybody has to do is watch Odin to really see what garbage he produced after Yamato.
Yay I love Yamato the story and music is addictive.
Prevailing opinion seems to be that Matsumoto was responsible for the awesome, but Nishizake got all the loot because he started the project and came up with the vague concept.
Considering that Matsumoto went on critical sucess with other stuff whilst Nishizake went on to bankruptcy and jail, i'm quite willing to believe that.
What is Yamato? I have never heard of it before?
Hugely sucessful mid 70s to early 80s franchise about the WW2 battleship being rebuilt into a space craft and used to save humanity. Notable for being a reflection of Japanese attitudes about the war, being more popular then Star Wars in Japan at the time and for writing the book on shows about beligured spaceship crews.
Is this Star Blazers?
oh glorius Yamatto goodness.
Actually I do believe Matsumoto being the one behind the success and awesomeness. I mean his subsequent works are still etched into my mind.
plot Battlestar Galactica?
hopefully no, I had enouygh mindfucks for a while

YouTube - Uchuu Senkan Yamato Fukkatsu hen (Space Battleship Yamato) movie trailer
Some pic's from an interesting freebie I picked up:
cool I want to see it
My god I can not wait to see it hope they bring it to the US
Bump. FYI this movie is now listed on Netflix under Yamato: Resurrection so a US release is looking pretty good.
If you guys visit the Starblazers website they've updated front page with news about a recent Sci-Fi expo in Montreal that showed the new Yamato movie.
