Message from Space – 1978

Post-Star Wars knockoff that I distinctly remember being a lot of fun. Even the ridiculousness (a 3-masted sailing spaceship?) was leavened by a pretty decent story, Kurosawa homages, bare-knuckle Godzilla-era model & fireworks FX –no optical printing here– including weirdly prescient separating ships, tunnel chases & plummeting villain deaths…not to mention scenery-chewing performances from everybody (and yes, that’s Vic Morrow.) Because Japan. Recommended.
