Iron sky

There is a rule of thumb  that every argument by English undergraduates about politics ends up with one person calling the opposing side a Nazi of some kind. Now that I am living in Germany I try to be careful, but it is a strain to remember that talking about those Nazi Tories may not be understood in Germany

I downloaded from Itunes "Iron Sky" The basic idea was that there was a secret Nazi base on the moon, which was set up at the end of the second world war. The base is accidentally found by American astronauts, and obviously the Nazis want to invade the earth again. The film is funny and a light satire. There is Sara Palin like person who is president. Now that Palin has imploded there is less possibility of her being president,  this may not be still as relevant as 2 years ago (it is still funny though)
