(Huffington Post)   Tall white space Nazis are not controlling Obama and the US Government says Paul Hellyer. This rumor comes from "Sorcha Faal," aka Such-a-Fail, aka Sister Theresa, via the Iranian agency, Fars. Hero tag is for the denial by Hellyer   (huffingtonpost.com ) divider line

The nickname "Such a Fail" is given to the Russian prophetess by some of the more rational and skeptical conspiracy theorists. Apparently you can fool some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time, as Lincoln famously said. And more remarkably, this is even true of (non-mainstream, non-academic) conspiracy theorists.

Why haven't tall white Nazis infiltrated the NBA?  Or have they already?  I'm looking at you Dirk Nowitzki.

As a Tall White that has been operating in the shadows since the 30s, I take great offense to being called a fabrication.

do it. make popcorn and a generous whiskey+coke first and get ready for a good time.

it's actually pretty damn funny. staggers a little in the second half but the finale is suitably epic AND hilariously dystopian.

'did anyone NOT arm their space stations with high tech weaponry??'

Meh. I watched it one day under the influence of marihauna and didn't find it nearly as entertaining. Yes, I knew what I was getting into before I watched it... I just expected it to be better. If you're watching for the whole "make fun of Americans" shtick, you'll probably enjoy it. The rest was too weird. Like, why was there a Presidential election in 2018? Yeah I get it, those wacky Europeans don't understand why Americans do American stuff. Couldn't they have at least got the election dates right?

Spoilers, if you want to actually watch Iron Sky:


Oh yeah, and these Nazis managed to build a gigantic, super advanced flying saucer mothership with lasers and shiat... yet after constructing this, they don't know how to activate it until they steal an iPhone. From the first black astronaut to land on the moon (because apparently you just bring your iPhone to the moon). Why build something if you don't even have any clue what component you need to activate it? And somehow this component is a farking smartphone? Yeah, I know, Iron Sky is supposed to be ridiculous. At this point in the movie, however, I was shaking my head more than laughing. They tried way too hard.

it's not that they needed a smartphone, it's that their very tiny R&D department was running 1940s-era computers that were not in any way up to the task of running all the systems on the ship, or even the propulsion systems, which because of the size of the shiat, required a lot of coordination. the little saucers didn't need it, as they used ONE propulsion system that the pilot could manage, and did not require control networking.

an Iphone DID have the computer power needed, and the nazi science guy was somehow smart enough to rootkit it, cobble together the java to run the ship, and integrate it reasonably well.

but then again, i paid attention.

and the weirdness is part of what makes it fairly fun. it's ridiculously over the top in so many ways, relies on absurd humor(a lost art in american cinema), and even does a couple moments of really slick social commentary(the huge shootout at the end for example.

Oh, I certainly paid attention. I just can't suspend my disbelief to the point where it takes a smartphone to power a gigantic laser-shootin' flying saucer. It's been a while since I've seen it, but don't they blow a huge-ass chunk out of the moon when they first start flying it? So how in the hell do these guys fly to the moon with 1940's technology, build a huge damn mothership and an entire futuristic society (again, with 1940's tech), but they cannot fathom something with the computing power of an iPhone? Somehow the Nazis couldn't figure this stuff out for themselves in the 70 years they've been on the moon? Like, their technology just stopped progressing AFTER building an advanced, self-sufficient Moon colony. They can do all of that other stuff, but a computer as powerful as a smartphone or tablet, that's beyond them?  Sorry, you've lost me.

All of the absurd humor and "social commentary" was way over the top, in my opinion. Like I said, they just tried too hard, and somehow a movie that was supposedly based off of Nazis living on the moon (a cool concept) just became another tired satire on American society from... what, Sweden? And not a very good satire at that, again IMHO.

You may have liked it, you know, different strokes for different folks. It has been a while since I've seen it, and I was stoned at the time... but I know I'm not the only person disappointed by the movie. Check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Sky#Reception

This sums the movie up for me: Jeff Shannon of The Seattle Times gave the film two out of four stars, describing it as "Great idea, lousy execution."

Jesus, that article gave me a headache, it seemed as rambling and without focus as the original Iranian news story.

Really, it pretty much sounds like the headline is the TL:DR version of events for those that want to save time.

Well... Yeah. I was expecting Nazis on the moon. That's the premise of the movie. The incorrect election date is just one part of what I thought were too many instances of how they get things wrong about the USA. It becomes really glaringly obvious that this is a European film doing a poor job of poking fun at Americans. Most of this movie turns into a satire of American culture and politics... If you can't get the obvious details right, why should I care about the rest?

Don't even get me started on the Sarah Palin as President thing. No subtlety there at all.

You just have to think (not think?) like a Teabagger.

It's 2016 and N0!bama forces, by executive order, a constitutional amendment allowing anybody whose first name begins with "B" and ends with "y" a third term.

Following an ACORN-led presidential victory, the POTUS makes a gaffe, automatically making Sarah Palin the president.
