I prefer MESSAGE to THE WAR IN SPACE.It's kind of a combo of STAR WARS and THE SEVEN SAMURAI (as was the later Corman produced BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS) and was loosely based on a Japanese myth.The same director did a wide range of pictures,from cheesy fun like THE GREEN SLIME,to classy epics (he directed the Japanese segments of TORA,TORA,TORA) to late cult favorites like BATTLE ROYALE.MESSAGE boasts some pretty snazzy model work,a good score and a plot/settings that give it the feel of an old animae like SPACE CRUISER YAMATO (aka STAR BLAZERS).

A label had offered the film on DVD a couple of years back,is this a different mastering ?
