Default Film: Yamato the last battle

Never heard of this film, seems to be made in 2005 and received very good ctitics!
Shown 17. Dezember 2005, it is the most successful film in Japan (in term of revenue) to date.

Originaltitle: Otoko-tachi no Yamato
Actors: Takashi Sorimachi, Shido Nakamura
Regie: Junya Sato

This is more of a drama film than a "battle film" - there was no big battle when 250 USN planes came down on it at the same time... they shot it to pieces (intrestinly enough, the AAA did not manage to hit a single USN plane; This astonishing failure is attributed to the lack of war training of the past months by some, to the high alcohol consumption the evening before which lasted until the early morning hours by others).


OK after having seen it, I would rank it in the category "Titanic drama", it is a very nice and touching film!!!!!

Another good Japanese film (with English subtitles) is Last Operations Under the Orion

Wut? The Japanese aren't allowed their Afleck & Hartnett?

I'm aware it's more of a drama piece and on some trailers, they show the triple 25's (?) firing with no recoil. (For some reason, it brings flashbacks of the old Godzilla films using scale models!)

Drinking the night before? In a ship of 2,600 plus it is extremely difficult to keep a one way mission voyage a secret. Can you blame them? For all the hype of their fanatacism, they were still human.

With all that, I'd still like to see this when I can get a hold of it.

Two films I found interesting due to the fact they are the same story told from opposite sides. First one is Flags of Our Fathers, told the American story of the battle and the raising of the American flag (famous propaganda photo). Then Letters from Iwo Jima, tells the brave but hopeless defense by the Japanese. Bouth films were directed by Clint Eastwood.
