But it is made by a Dutchman.  I really don't see your point.

Forgive me, but I must say this at every opportunity: If you ain't Dutch, you ain't much. Ontopic, the first one looked silly so I never saw it, nor will I see this one (no matter how many Dutch folk are in it).

Now wait a minute, I think that's a little offensive to our many Netherlanding PEELers. Like           and                . And Let's we not forget                ?

That's what I thought.

I have been hearing so much talk on this Hunger Games movie that I looked up the synopsis on Wikipedia. Kids fight in a gladiator type arena to the death for the entertainment of the higher ups. Sooo...its like a Star Trek episode, except completely awful and done with kids.

...what? I don't understand the big deal. People are predicting it to be the new "Twilight"...as if we needed more...

What do you guys think? Do you think it's just another typical kids-put-in-adultlike-situations to make them feel empowered, like Harry Potter? I think it sounds more like that saga than that Twilight stuff. No one's a hero in that.

If that's what people want, then they really should consider adapting one of Louise Lawrence's novels for film.  She does a great job of writing teenagers put in situations beyond their understanding and control, and her characters feel a lot more natural and complex then the typical "kid heroes" type thing.  

She's not shy about showing people cracking under pressure or committing suicide when they're pushed beyond their despair horizon, however, which might make her a bit too bleak for many.  Her other main strength are her writing style and vivid descriptions, which would get lost in a movie format.

Anyway, I'm taking it have they finally cancelled the Dark Crystal sequel?  I mean, we've had nothing from it for three years.  I remember when there was a lot of fanfare about it when it was first announced, languished in development hell for four years or more (not even getting any new concept art) and now it seems officially dead.  Pity, because it seemed quite exciting.

It's just what he does. The problem is an intense reality disconnect; he honestly believes making a few subtle changes will actually make the premise realistic, which just proves what a moron he is.

Perhaps my tastes are off, but I found this on par with a SyFy movie. It's unintentionally comical to me for many reasons. One, Space Nazis (They're Nazis! IN SPACE!). Two, the funny looking hopping about on the moon's surface. Three, the cheesy SFX. I'm not saying this movie belongs in the toilet, but I found the first bit unintentionally comical and not to my liking. Still, it's better than Bayformers and that Michael Bay TMNT shitfest coming down the pike.

Whilst I haven't watched the first few minutes yet, I can assure you that the concept of space-Nazis is intended to be funny.

I don't know if it's possible for a comedy to be unintentionally comical ...

I'm still not sure whether I should watch the first five minutes yet or just wait until I can watch the whole movie.

Well, being a total ignorant person to Iron Sky, I had no idea it was meant to be funny. Herp derp.

Jezzem, it's entirely possible. Just look at all the hilariously bad "comedy" films of today! We laugh at them because they're so stupid and horrible... or maybe we're laughing at ourselves for watching them. Or laughing to mask our inner sorrow for wasting precious time... Yeah, probably that one.

Iron Sky is made by the same people who made Star Wreck.

Pretty much a given that it's a comedy. smile

sadly, space nazis are a very common theme in serious scifi, so that's not a good indicator by itself. Of course, they're not usually actual, literal nazis...

I'm trying to get my head around Snow White and the Huntsman, because it seems like it will be another enjoyable if forgettable and ultimately pointless Grim!Dark!Fairy!Tale! the way Alice in Wonderland was.

But seriously, as soon as I hear the mirror say that the Lady Lipbiter from Twilight is not just fairer then Cherlize freaking Theron but the fairest of them all I just roll off the floor laughing my arse off.   Next they'll be casting Emma Watson as Helen of Troy or Ellen Page as the goddess Aphrodite.

I'm not saying plain/pretty but not striking/cute but not beautiful or even ugly or unattractive women shouldn't be actresses because that's just stupid and sexist, but when the character's extreme beauty is an actual PLOT POINT or defining aspect of them, then you cast someone who is you know... lives up to the constant praise of their physical appearance in the script.   When characters gush constantly about the extreme beauty of someone who isn't really anything special, it ends up feeling like a live action adaption of a Mary Sue fanfiction at the very least.

Hollywood's been casting ridiculously attractive people as unattractive best friends for years - basically expecting us to believe that if they're wearing a pair of glasses, then they're losers with no friends who no one will ever want to touch with their genitals.

So it's rather odd to see the reverse in action for a change.


Oh, and it's very stupid, also.

Dutch people.

3/5ths compromise.


Awesome!  I was watching Alien the other night in my theater downstairs.  I got a reel copy of the film about a decade and a half ago, and the movie still invokes strange childhood emotions deep inside me.

True or not, what the fuck is this shit? What doesn't Michael Bay potentially ruin these days (forgive me if you've discussed this, but I did not see anything concerning it)?

Lol!  Michael Bay and Shia Lebouf are determined to ruin the 1980s for everybody.

Totally off-bar.  Iron Sky is the bad-ass project that's been in development forever.  It's gonna be grand!  GRANNNNNDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD DDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since Hollywood is not above recycling any idea, I'm anxiously awaiting a remake of the movie Alive.  Possibly starring Ryan Reynolds.  I'd love to see someone eat his abs.  Oh, and it should be "reimagined" as a comedy.

Yeah... especially the girl in Mirror, Mirror.  She's actually quite pretty, even though a third of her face seems to be taken up by her eyebrows.

Still at least they're not trying to pass her off as more beautiful then Cherlize fucking Theron.

That (what Danny just said) was really the only part I found funny. The rest just looks awkward. And I don't mean awkward because of the "it's a foul-mouthed teddy bear" aspect, but because the CGI interacting with the rest of the characters just looks...odd.
