    Love this movie. I like to turn my TV’s color setting down to 0 and watch this in black and white (the way it was originally intended to be released). It’s really a shame how many people seem to have entirely forgotten about this movie.

      I hadn’t heard that about the black and white thing, but I’m certainly not surprised. Either way, I think the director did a very good job with the color, giving it a Technicolor quality.

    I watched this on the recommendation of the podcast a few years back. I love the idea of paying homage to those pulpy sci-fi comic book tropes of the 1940s, and Sky Captain certainly looked nice. The characters were fun, the situations imaginative. But it was missing something. Ultimately I found it to be a hollow and forgettable experience, like the fourth Indiana Jones movie. I appreciated what it was trying to do, but in my opinion it was less than the sum of its parts. Too bad–if it was just a bit more of a success, I could see it being one of my favorite movies.
