I saw "Iron Sky" tonight and thoroughly recommend it. It's been ages since I've seen a decent black comedy and this one really hit all bases - social, political, racial, gender, fashion and sexual mores all coming in for a good poking, as well as sprinkles of wit and some light dashes of situational comedy. The big 'twist' - although obvious - had myself and the rest of the audience cackling with glee. It was also worth going to see it on the big screen for the kickass battles and space effects.
A big Thumbs Up from me and I'll be buying the DVD when it's released.
ETA: In terms of stars, I'd give it 4/5.
