Your Last Chance To See Moon Nazis!

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2012 at 11:00 AM

I finally got a chance to see Iron Sky last night—and it's the most looney bit of cinema I've seen since Bubba Ho-Tep. The description from The Loft:

"In 1945 The Nazis Went To The Moon. In 2018 They Are Coming Back."

In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers. When American astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby) puts down his Lunar Lander a bit too close to the secret Nazi base, the Moon Führer (Udo Kier) decides the glorious moment of retaking the Earth has arrived sooner than expected. Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and idealistic Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), travel to Earth to prepare for the ultimate invasion. As the final hour looms closer and the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities. Can the Earth possibly survive this all-out attack by the Moon Nazis? See the SS sci-fi action/comedy extravaganza of the year and find out for yourself!

There are a lot of influences in this movie, including Dr. Strangelove, Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, Game Change, the Ilsa film series and even a little bit of The Watermelon Man. All I can say is that I got a big kick out of it. The run at the Loft ends on Thursday night, so you've only got a few more nights to check it out on the big screen.
