DVD of the Day #87 - Royal Space Force - The Wings of Honneamise (Blu-Ray)

Well, I finally got my hands on this. It’s one of the rarest and most expensive Hi-Definition DVD’s ever. Currently the Blu-Ray Version sells for $60 and the HDDVD version goes for $72. Thankfully I got it new and sealed off Ebay for $30.

I have to tell you, it wasn’t even worth that.

Made by GAINAX along with another trite and vastly overrated little number called Neon Genesis Evangelion, Royal Space Force is long, boring, lacking any real character development and just plain sucks. The movie is two hours of nothing but a cast of vapid two dimensional characters on an alien world with the plot revolving around an attempt to blast off into space for the first time.

The main character is Shirotsugh Lhadatt, and you never learn anything about him save for his desire to go into space and his volunteering to be the first astronaut after meeting up with a religious fanatic named Riquinni. After the announcement of the first pending manned spaceflight, Lhadatt becomes something of a celebrity and finds himself achieving his dream but for the wrong reasons. Then, he blasts off into space anyway. The end.

yes, that’s really the plot and yes it’s really that boring. It’s literaly two hours of nothing happening and a complete lack of plot progression. It was like watching The Hills but without the comedy of how bad that show is.

Royal Space Force seems to be random events just stuck together and thrown at the wall in a vain attempt of making a movie that has any real substance. Not only are characters lacking any depth, but random things happen that are totally batshit, and then things go back to normal as if they never happened. No this is not an attempt at surreality or even existentialism - it’s just plain bad writing and stupid plot devices. A great example of this is the relationship between Lhadatt and Riquinni. They hang out and get emotionally close, but then out of nowhere Lhadatt tried to rape her, ripping her closes offf, grabbing her boobies and forces her into sex while she screams, cries, and begs for him to stop. Then she hits him on the head with a foreign object, knocking him out cold and the scene ends. The next morning Lhadatt apologizes and she apologizes back and things go back to normal. It’s just plain stupid on every level I can describe a film as being stupid.

This is a movie to avoid on all levels save for people who collect things simply for the sake of collecting. I’d trade it in if it a) wasn’t so hard to find or B) I could find someone willing to pay what I paid for this.

Is It Worth Keeping: No, but I will since it is out of print and I can eventually get my money back for this piece of crap
