Sky Captain

This weekend I saw Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, a film I can definitely recommend. It is visually stunning, sort of a cross between Metropolis, War of the Worlds, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. The story line is corny as hell, and lots of impossible things happen, but, that is in the nature of the kind of 1930's retro-adventure the movie is trying to be. A lot of impossible things happened in King Kong, too. The movie prominently features a P-40 Warhawk fighter plane, which I've always thought was a great-looking machine...

Update: Brian over at Peeve Farm also saw the movie and commented on it.
