Trivia

After travelling through the nebula, the last hour of the film switches to an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio. In theaters,this effect was accomplished by having the curtains open partially enough to accommodate the 4:3 NTSC aspect the for the first half of the film without the audience being distracted by the blank screen areas that would have flanked the image had the curtains been fully drawn. During the pivotal scene, the curtains would gradually, and discretely open fully to accommodate the widescreen image. In a darkened theater, this gave the effect that the audience was exiting through a portal. This effect was simulated in home video by simply having the image change from full-screen to letterbox at the appropriate time.. See more »

With enemies like this Dark Nebula Empire, Yamato better be around forever!
6 December 2003 | by (South Hadley MA US) – See all my reviews

Definetely, without a doubt, Be Forever has the best beginning of any Yamato movie or series! The Dark Empire's invasionary force is truly awesome and formidable, and Earth's solar system gets its biggest asskicking in the shortest time ever. Some of the Empire's attack vehicles resemble mecha from the War of the Worlds, book AND movie. Empire sky-troopers are incredibly sadistic in their first attack on Earth. The Dark Empire wants revenge on Yamato and Earth for their defeat in the previous/third movie Yamato New Voyage. We see Alex Wildstar again and...another member of the Wildstar family. There is a scene at the Empire's homeworld that is aweing and surreal, I had to rewind and watch it twice initially. The sap factor was heavy in Be Forever even for a Yamato storyline. The last explosion is the biggest explosion ever in Yamato.
