I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

Imagine, if you will suspend disbelief for a mere 93 minutes, that it is 2018 and Sarah Palin is President of The United States. Desperate for a re-election ploy and working on the advice of her publicist she launches another manned mission to the moon. It is here we enter our story as those intrepid astronauts, chosen in typical modern American manner for their popularity rather than competence, discover to their regret a secret moon base manned by Nazis who escaped the bounds of Earth in 1945 to carry on their mission of world domination, which they are on the cusp of renewing.

Take two parts Steam Punk, one part “Mars Attacks,” one part James Bond of the Roger Moore era, and one part “Dr. Strangelove,” mix haphazardly and pretty much right there you have the plot of “Iron Sky.”

As is true of many cult films, if you don’t ask too much of it, have a nice rum and coke handy, and know a bit of the relevant history you might just get a few laughs. Otherwise you will be scratching your head wondering why this movie was even made.

A joint project between Finland, Germany and Australia it is as disjointed as you might expect. If cult films are your thing and you have not heard of “Iron Sky” give it a whirl. If you enjoyed “Les Patterson Saves the World” You’re gonna love this. If you are more of the Yahoo Serious type, hard to say.

“Lord of the Rings” this isn’t, it’s not even “Lord of the Flies” but I would still rather watch it than Lord of the Dance!

    “Imagine, if you will suspend disbelief” — Please, I’d rather not.  Too many good men are buried in cemeteries the world over because of the efforts to defeat totalitarian regimes in the Second World War.  I would prefer to recall the magnitude of their sacrifice than indulge in fantasies of Nazi victory.

    Not only have I heard of iron skies, I’ve already seen it ;D

    It’s not bad actually, I found it ridiculous sure, but still better than most crap Hollywood is churning out =D

  • I was quite eager to see this because it had such a great premise. But it ended up just being silly and badly written. The digital effects were good though.
