First, read Dr. Science's post about SOPA/PIPA, and act! I ain't saying that piracy's good, but these bills take a sledgehammer to a porcelain doll. And the doll's worth saving.
Called your Rep and Senator? Good. This second one is even more important.
They've made a Star Blazers live action film. Behold the trailer:
I realize that I'm speaking to a very specific demographic here, but damn. I remember waking up at 6 a.m. just to watch Star Blazers on old WGN 9, setting an alarm and everything. I can't say I welcome this version -- there's plenty of fear and trepidation for a George Lucas remake -- but at least it seems that they got the visuals right. And that's something.
Anyone know if it's coming to the States? If not, here's your open thread.
UPDATE: OK, fine, it came out in 2010. I'm late to this party. But still: anyone seen it? Any good?
