My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

"I think you know what I'm talking about, ladies and gentlemen.  That's right...mother fucking space Nazis!"

I fucking love that line from the trailer.  I can't remember how long ago I first saw the trailer that whetted my appetite for this flick but it was a few years ago.  I finally saw this last year (I'm a little behind here) and while it's not as fun as the spectacular trailer, it was good and it's got a lot of things going for it.  The art design and look of the film is incredible.  The special effects are simply grand.  I love this little world they've created.  Some of the gags work and some don't.  Unfortunately there are some slow spots that need something extra or need to be tightened up a bit.  The ending was surprising serious and kind of depressing.  I'll give this one another shot one day.  It's a fun ride when you're looking for something different.
