    Just saw it here in the States at the old home theater. My work buddy, who I introduced to the movie long before it had reached fruition, bought the Blu-Ray from England. I loved it. The Adler character was fantastically insane. Loved
    white James Washington on the street, with his sign, preaching fear of Moon Nazis.
    Renate was fantastic too, good character development there. The President and the fashionista were terrifically over the top. All in all, it was a well spent hour and a half.

    If you speak with Timo, let him know Iron Sky gets two zeppelins up from this guy.

    I thought it was fantastic, exceeded my expectations by a mile, (only because the budget was a shoe string).

    Oh! I completely forgot to let you know, I went to see it and had so much fun.

    Visually, it looks absolutely fantastic. Incredible at that budget, really.
    Otherwise, it was a great fun, too! The characterisations are pretty much spot on, and though I was worried about Washington's OTT "Blackness" it paid off like the setup for a good joke when we learn why he's on the moon in the first place. Julie Dietze and Götz Otto have the perfect look, with Otto every bit the square-jawed hulk of an ubermensch and Dietze gorgeous and with a playful, beguiling energy about her.

    I noticed an interesting dynamic watching the film. With this being a film with a small but loyal following, and probably also related to the troubles getting it a wider release in the UK, some of the audience members seemed hyper-sensitive to any potentially funny moment in the film. Even before the film, one group in particular had kind of whipped themselves up into such a frenzy that they were laughing at every joke in the ADVERTS. Maybe they were just stoned out of their minds, but it seems that the good-will the process of creating and releasing the film has generated leaves fans more READY to be entertained by it, which I'm not saying is a good or a bad thing. It's just an observation I made.

    I have a feeling Iron Sky will get funnier every time I watch it, so I'm looking forward to a (PROPER) DVD release. :)

    Heh, cheers people! And yeah, Magnulus, it was fun to hear about that fact about the audience - you know, the overarching idea was to make even the making of the film an experience which people wanted to take a part in, not just an ad campaign for the film. Looks like that kind of approach pays off.

    I haven't seen it, but my boyfriend's sister did, and she thought this: "Thoroughly enjoyed Iron Sky... someone had way too much fun making that movie. Though I think there were more digs at the US than there were at Nazis."

    It seems to be on Jon Stewart's radar as well.

    It's a very small bit right at the end of the segment, but it's there.

    We are thrilled to announce that Iron Sky will have nationwide distribution in United States, Starting Now!

But because of our wonderful fans, You, We are now standing in the position where anything is possible. It is the Land of Opportunities, right? Where do we land?

    So, who's starting the Portland event? My summer schedule can be best described as "Fucking busy" with classes, so I don't want to take on the task, but I can and will make it to any evening (6pm or later) showing.

    Looking forward to finally seeing this film.

    And there's a showing on the 21st on the other side of town which do quite nicely. I was about ready to start organizing a showing on my own. (I guess I will if I want to see it a second time on the big screen, eh?)

    Hmm, sorry to say but I don't really know, since I don't work on the project anymore, but the guys are really active in trying to get the film on screens everywhere possible. There are fair amount of Demands in Portugal, though... http://www.ironsky.net/demand/
