I registered because I have been Googling for a while now and can't find the Mecha movie I was thinking of and feel no closer to my goal.
I saw it a long time ago and all I remember is that I liked it and a few specific scenes.
So, good people, help me out. (Please?)
I know this is all pretty vague, but I thought if I could tap the collective knowledge of some fellow nerds I might crack the case.
- There is a scene where the pilot steps out of the robot to reload the robot's gun. The robot's gun is a revolver and the robot kneels on one knee and rests the gun with the tip of the barrel pointing downwards. Not straight down, but at a forty-five degree angle. I believe the pilot is reloading while a freight elevator either lowers or rises with both the pilot and robot on it. I think the revolver is a six shot snub nose. The shells are stored in a compartment in the robot's leg and are at least half the height of the pilot.
- The final battle, or a pivotal battle, occurs on either the deck of an aircraft carrier or oil rig. It might be an abandoned ship or oil rig. I remember the sky being black and the oil rig or ship's platform as blackened and appearing in disrepair.
- Before the final battle all is quiet until a crow appears and caws. There's a tight shot of the crow, presumably representing death.
- I would have seen this more than ten years ago, so it must be fairly old. I think it may have been the early nineties when I saw it, but it might have been old at the time. I don't really know. (At least ten years ago.)
- I'm fairly certain it was a film and not an episode of some series.
I saw this a long time ago, so if the description is close to something you know then just throw the name out there.
What say you, fellow nerds?
Also... is this a rude thing to do? Just join to ask a question? If so, just say so and I will vamoose.
