I needed a bit of good news
And this month, a freight train loaded to the brim with good – no, outrageously excellent – news just crashed through my house. In the metaphorical sense, of course. Otherwise I’d be a bit dead right now and writing this from The Other Side.
So let me take you back a few years, to the day I first watched Iron Sky. It contains many of my favourite things:
- Sci-fi genre
- An obvious low budget with big ambitions
- Preposterous evil Nazis, usually of the zombie variety, but I’ll accept a moon Nazi or two
- Massive death count with a fair few creative ways to die
- Tongue-in-cheek humour
- Cheesy one-liners
- Explosions – lots of
- Overly dramatic soundtrack
- Outrageous plots so ludicrous you wish they were true
- Udo Kier
At the time, I would have suggested the only thing missing from this movie to perhaps make it greater would be a mind-blowing cameo from those legends of trash, Eric Roberts or Bruce Davison. But, as you know, they’re busy working on a trillion other quality productions as I write.
So, you can probably understand my immense joy at the prospect of a second, even more ludicrous Iron Sky film. Here is just a snapshot of what this movie involves – please read carefully:
Hitler, who is in fact a shape-shifting reptilian, leading an army of dinosaurs.
Yes, you got it. Hilter. Hitler is a shape-shifting reptilian. He leads an army of dinosaurs. Having moved from the moon after the first film (!), he now resides back in Hollow Earth, accessed via a secret entrance in the Arctic. Did I mention that the President of the United States is also reptilian?
If you can suspend your disbelief for a couple of hours, this movie will be pure joy. Check out the trailer: I cannot wait!
Here are a few stills to get you chucking…
These amazing costumes are kicking my creative brain into overdrive – must start sketching!
Udo Kier! Clearly having immense fun playing ‘Reptilian Hitler’
The President of the US holds a dark secret. As well as a gun. What’s with the polar bear? Oh yeah…
Whatever happened to Tom Green? Well…
Fill your boots with oodles more info on these mad, mad films on the official website, ironsky.net. You’ll be glad you did 🙂
