Space Battleship Yamato
dir. Takashi Yamazaki (2010, Japanese cinematic release; 2014, American DVD, subtitled)
The 1970s anime series (known to the west as Star Blazers) is remade here as live action space- and soap opera, the alien Gamilas waiting their turn while Nova, Wildstar et al. go heart-to-heart. Well acted; nostalgically pleasing; visually and musically iconic.
