Some young Finnish film makers show me how tomorrow belongs to them.

    Right, complaint number 2.
    If you are going to provide a URL, put it on screen for more than a second.
    Rule of thumb, it needs to be onscreen for the time it takes to read twice. The 'credits' are on screen longer.

    Also... if its a URL, why have you not provided said link in the description of the video? This is just basic web design 101.

    Hedda Archbold, Nick Freand Jones, Stevan Keane... try to actually do something that warrants me knowing who you are.

    If you managed to take down their names you probably should be able to remember the url. for those unable to press the pause button.

    I watched that trailer last week and was disappointed they were still looking for funding.
    It could be terrible, but the concept of Space Nazis will get my bum on a cinema seat.

    As this is the beeb -
    "other films are available to fund"

    I look forward to our Finnish cinematic overlords. If their Eurovision history is anything to go by, it'll be fun.

  • Comment number 6.

    Why Dr Kermode with this second post you are really spoiling us.

    I hope when you said it could be another Plan 9 From Outer Space you meant that in a good way. Plan 9 is one of the best pieces of trash cinema ever committed to celluloid and actually has some great shots. The Troma movies are utterly dreadful though.

    It does sound like a great idea, I've got a spare quid I can chip into the pot.

    ( isn't hard to memorise especially when he said iron sky a good couple of times and pointed to their logo)

    I think the point of adamwilcoxs complaint was that nobody cares about the credits of those people (expect perhaps their mothers) - they get paid to do what they do, no need to thank them for doing it.

    As for Finns doing movies? Oh, the horror:

    It reminds me of the mad art deco inspired black and white film from about five years ago which looked like it had been made in 1932 and then lost for 70 years - about the contest for the best song ...
    Iron sky had me until the seagull

    The gull is a freedom fighter!

    I see what has tickled you Dr. After all that time the Nazi's are still wearing leather.

    Looks rubbish, will be rubbish and no amount of online support can make a difference. Just look at snakes on a plane, 80% of people backing it online didn't go to see it once released!

    PS Comment 1 was written by a Nazi.

    Iron Sky - Fintasitc! I hope it becomes the fifth Indiana Jones film! "I hate snakes", come on Seagalis!
