This movie is complete cotton candy of a movie. Basically a high concept thrown together in a blender full of utter silliness. I don't know what else I can say other than I enjoyed the hell out of it. Maybe Vern could take a look.

 

I mean, seriously, Space Nazis. How can you go wrong with Space Nazis? It's great! This is why not too expensive, decent looking CGI was invented.

I also love the fact they filmed partly in Australia and had Australian actors playing the Americans in America. Looks like Canadians don't have monopoly on that anymore.

Yeah, a fun sort of silly movie.  The concept itself is worth the watch. 

 

Though I felt like it was missing something.  Felt like it didn't fully explore the premise.  Kind of rushed through the story. 

 

Downfall parody was funny.

I think it looks pretty entertaining, when is it coming out in the US?

No idea but it's available on DVD in the UK at the very least. Maybe elsewhere.

That scene was amusing. As was the references to other movies like Dr Strangelove (the arm), Armegeddon (generic disaster city crowd panic running shots),  and Apocalypse Now (Ride of the Valkyries).

 

The bit I particularly liked was a reference to The Great Dictator at the beginning of the movie as a 10 minute pro-Hitler short film which of course led to the "132 minutes later" frame in the middle of the movie. I laughed out loud.

Yeah, it's a good movie.I've watched it many times, but now I like to watch other movies. I like to look at the beautiful girls here at fire cam. I feel like my childhood is going away because I don't watch so many regular movies. I'm not really interested. The Internet is my life. I'm here all the time.
