I don't really like anime, but back in the late 90's I caught a couple minutes of the ending of an anime movie and I remember it being really awesome. It's stayed in the back of my head ever since. It was on the Sci-Fi channel, and it seemed like it was dead serious in tone, although not melodramatic or hilariously serious. There was a space battle going on, and the ships looked like something from Alien or the original Star Wars trilogy. The art style was more like a Ghost in the Shell as opposed to more cartoony and exaggerated stuff. The film was desaturated with heavy contrast to the point of being almost black and white. The characters wore space suits that kinda looked like Raiden's suit in Metal Gear Rising. Things weren't going well, and I think everyone might have died...? Maybe not. Anyways, I remember it was visually resplendent and kinda blew me away, although I was just a kid at the time so who knows. Finding out what movie I saw is probably totally futile with details as sparse as mine, but I figured asking can't hurt.
