Sky Captain (no spoilers): [Sep. 20th, 2004|08:59 am]
Just me.
Film itself is fun, though plot is paper thin. Notable for the best last line in a film since "Birdy".

Of course it was paper thin! It was patterned after old serials!

...Which is, I think, precisely the point, and I'm glad folks are picking up on that. My favorite comment about it was from a post on Mobius Home Video Forum that stated that while there's not a whole lot of groundbreaking originality in the actual story, "frankly, there isn't a surplus of fresh ideas in Return of Chandu either." It's the cover of a 1930s pulp come to life via the fever dream of a kid who's overdosed on screenings of Fighting Devil Dogs and the Fleischer Brothers' "The Mechanical Monsters."

I think anyone who cares about spoilers for Sky Captain and the fucking World of Tomorrow needs to be unfriended immediately.
