so I set the alarm for 2 or 3 A.M. and duly woke my brother Eric up so we could watch the science fiction movie. we had no idea it was an actual Japanese superhero movie! for years I remembered Starman bending the gun the gangsters were using to menace the children in the movie.
the opening was even more iconic and surreal. it's really cool. who knew one day you could buy all four movies for about $20? for more info, look at the Blacksun blog on it!
