Synopsis

The live-action film, Space Battleship Yamato, is based on the Japanese sci-fi anime series of the same name. The series was originally broadcast in Japan in 1974. In North America, an English dubbed version of the series, known as Star Blazers, aired in the United States in 1979. The story is set in the year 2199. The Gamilas, a mysterious alien enemy, has been decimating the Earth to unlivable and irradiated conditions for the past 5 years. Humankind now lives underground to escape the radiation, but with only a year until extinction. One day while roaming the surface of Earth, former pilot Susumu Kodai comes across a capsule sent from the planet Iskandar that reveals there is technology that has the power to eradicate the radiation from Earth. A chosen crew of Space Battleship Yamato takes off on the long trip to Iskandar with hopes to save the Earth.

This is a live action remake of a 1970s Anime series, and according to Amazon.com, it is the number one selling new release of the week. Either this is an incredibly slow week, or there's something wrong with Amazon.com's algorithm. It's mostly the former. Gloria is easily the best movie on this list, but the reviews on the DVD are weak.
