The German Film Iron Sky

29 January 2013, 11:04

Yesterday I got an incredible nice surprise on Netflix. I found a German Science Fiction film called Iron Sky. It was made in 2012 and an independent film without big studio backing.

Those of us who love science fiction are familiar with the theory that some Nazis fled at the end of World War II and set up a colony of the dark side of the moon. This movie begins in 2018 when two American astronauts land on the moon. A few minutes after leaving the lunar module, they run right into some evil looking men who are obviously in Nazi space suits. One astronaut is shot dead and the lunar module is destroyed.

The other astronaut is captured alive and hauled back to the colony that is obviously a major Nazi outpost. When the astronaut's helmet is removed, the Nazis are shocked to see that he is an African American. Of course he is tortured and imprisoned. He does manage to escape and somehow makes his way back to earth. In the future world of 2218 America has a female president and she is the twin of Sarah Palin including the glasses.

One thing leads to another and the moon Nazis send an invasion fleet to conquer the world. An American space cruiser is sent to engage the Nazis. Its name is "The USS George W. Bush." It is made clear that it's nuclear armed. The Sarah Palin look alike is warned that if nuclear weapons are used, innocent women and children could be killed. Her response in the film is: "I don't give a damn, nuke 'em!" Of course the American stop the Nazi invasion.

This film is full of great special effects, humor and satire. It was great fun to watch. But it also had a deeper message that Europeans often see we Americans as "trigger happy cowboys who shoot first and ask questions later." The website for the film is ironsky.net. This is a great film and I had a lot of fun watching it.

The Apathy of SA’s Academics

With SA’s leading opposition party, the DA, feeling uncomfortable in its own skin, traditional white farmers joining the EEF, the uncertain future of the ANC as ruling party, the frustrated workers class, the ANC’s radical land and transformation plans and a president who is reluctant to face justice, South Africans need to sit down and talk. Read more...
