Iron Sky – Movie 47 of 365

28 Feb

Iron SkyYou know how they label Dr. Strangelove a comedy but it isn’t really funny and more than a little bit thought provoking?  The same is true of the movie Iron Sky.

First things first, suspend all disbelief before watching this movie. Most, if not all, of this movie isn’t remotely plausible, but that’s not really the point. This movie is part alternative history, part parody, with not to subtle political overtones.

The year is 2018 and the president of the United States, who seems a lot like Sarah Palin,  in a bid to boost her rating and her chances for re-election authorizes a trip to the moon. Once on the moon astronauts discover a secret Nazi base hidden on the dark side of the moon for the last 63 years. After capturing one of the astronauts the Nazis determine that they are about to be invaded and need to strike first. But they need something with stronger computing power to unleash their war machine. They discover the astronauts cellphone has the power but the battery runs out. So they must launch a secret mission to earth to get more cellphones.

Okay stay with me, it’s not as bad as it sounds.

There is more to it but I don’t want to give it away. There is parts about propaganda, beliefs, and what happens when you have been force-fed wrong information for so long. Also the greed of nations and what we are willing to do for a vote.

It’s actually kind of smart and clever. Yeah the writing and a lot of the acting could’ve been better but I think it gets it’s point across.

    Agreed. This really is one of those movies where you have to abandon your values and ethical correctness, but if you do you kind of like it and I believe I actually chuckled quite a few times when I was watching it.

    Exactly. Some movies are definitely not to be taken to seriously.
