    IRON SKY Review

    However, the movie remains enjoyable enough with its own brand of silliness. Part of the humor is throwing lots of zany humor at the audience and switching between playing it straight and playing an Albert Einstein look-alike as an evil Nazi scientist. Up until the end, Iron Sky is light enough to swing between different brands of humor without seeming desperate. While desperation never sets in, the humor fades away, and the movie morphs into a wannabe Dr. Strangelove but with space battles. Vuorensola deserves credit for using his limited budget to get the most out of his green-screen effects, but eventually the setting and the plot overpower the goofiness that had made Iron Sky so enjoyable.

    Iron Sky is worthy of applause for using moon Nazis as a launching point rather than just recycling the joke for 90 minutes. The moon Nazis get the ball rolling on the silliness to come, and the film remains light and airy enough to drift between different comic styles. Except for a couple clever parodies, the humor is usually good enough to get some laughs, but never great enough to be particularly memorable. But ending with a bland space battle and a trite message does a disservice to everyone, both Earthmen and moon Nazis alike.

    I think it's ****ing pathetic that after 4 or 5 days of being released the entire world is calling Carter a "flop" and a "reject" and every other name under the sun.

    Since when do civilians give a **** how much money a movie makes compared to how much it cost to make? The world is entirely too cynical these days and it makes me sad and angry. Sandgry.

    MANDRAKE THE MAGICIAN Film in the Works at Warner Bros.

    Summoned from the mind of “The Phantom” creator Lee Falk, Mandrake used his superior intellect and powers of hypnosis/illusion to foil the plots of such deliciously pulpy foes as arch nemesis The Cobra, master-of-disguise The Clay Camel, and his evil twin, Derek (who, despite the name, is also quite formidable). At his side throughout is Lothar, a former African prince who aides Mandrake with his near-unparalleled physical strength.
    Oh please, not that I am racist, but PLEASE make a note for note version of this. Somehow I think that's less racist than the eventual PC'ing of the character.

    How is it possible that $600 million is the break even point for this? It is mindboggling to me.

    The only point I agree with is #10.

    Saw it for the second time last night with my daughter, niece, nephew, and nephew's girlfriend. The all said it was a really enjoyable movie. The second time through for me, it was easy to analyze stuff like plot inconsistencies, acting, etc. I won't lie...there's some cheese in there that I didn't notice before, but it's not enough to wreck the goodness of this movie for me.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.
