Flying Phantom Ship is a wonderful mystery spectacle for anyone who loves over the top anime. this film was hard to predict, so many events come out of nowhere. things like Giant robots kaiju attacking a city or A spectral skeleton that is out for revenge stepping out from the shadows that possess a flying ghost ship poised with lasers and rockets! if that doesn't make you curious how about a dog that carries around a bag of momentous? at its core this is a film about a boy and his dog and is a metaphor for the sudden moments of loss and hardships in read more

I initially stumbled onto this series because of the reference to the film in Moyoco Anno's biographical manga about her husband, "Insufficient Direction"! It was cited there as an early influence for the famous Neon Genesis Evangelion director, so — of course, I had to give this feature a try! I originally expected a spooky, mystery scenario... but the narrative somehow manages to spiral around, and ends up punching you in the face with the message that big companies are bad and don't care about your health!

Now, this film may be 51-years-old, but it is well worth the time! That is... as long as you bear in mind that it is a kids film. Even so, the plot, although parts have been used a lot now, is actually very unique if you consider when it came out.

The visuals are about what you would expect... it is clunky and simplistic, but lovable all at the same time. I guess that lovable side comes from the fact that Hayao Miyazaki was one of the key animators.

The audio, as was all audio in anime in 1969, was a little crackly and makes it clear read more

Man... what a movie. This is a love letter to B movies verry fun while being at the same time deeper than it seems in the fisrt place by a subtle critic of capitalism, war, and polution. (Not so surprising when you know that the movie was half financed by soviet union)

Story: The plot is not so incredible but the sub text of the movie was really intelligent and still relevant. I think even if you are an alt-right guy you will not feel that what is depicted in this movie is wrong. It really was a good surprise. 8/10

Art: It's some of the best read more
