Mock Squid Soup: Space Battleship Yamoto: November 14, 2014

Please check out The Armchair Squid's site for details on our bloghop and the story around our choice of movie this month.

Another short post as the real world seems to prevent blogging right now.  No sob story...just so busy.

Currently #394 on my flickchart list
Space Battleship Yamoto was a fun romp.  The visuals were impressive.  The characters fun.  It really seemed to embody the cartoon (granted I have a VERY limited exposure to the television show).

The only real negative for me was the subtitles.  I've never been a fan of subtitles given the nuances you lose in the delivery of the dialogue.  There seemed to be a few jumps in logic/the story that might not have taken a native speaker by surprise.

Please check out the other folks who have watched the movie!

  1. I just love this review !
    Short and to the point.
    Had to work at trying to keep my review short. I tend to blather on.

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I'm curious to watch it again, but more of the cartoon first.

  3. I was fair and unbiased by previous exposure to other media, and the entire Japanese film industry is so grateful to me (not).

  4. Short and to the point; I like it. Too bad I didn't enjoy the film more. I'm too busy to participate next month, but still, I can't wait to see what everyone has to say about Pulp Fiction. I'm sure I'll drop my two cents in the comments.


Why, hello there!
