Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

It’s an old-style 40’s sci fi movie. The only thing that is real in the movie are the actors: Angelina Jolie, Gwenyth Paltrow, and Jude Law. Everything else is computer generated.

Everything about the movie is like the movies in the 40’s. It is a screwball comedy/adventure movie. Gwenyth Paltrow talks really fast like women did in the movies back then and there is sexual innuendo all over the place between her and Jude Law. Their characters used to date so they have that love/hate relationship.

I’m not sure why Angelina Jolie is even mentioned in the credits since she shows up in the last fourth of the movie and still isn’t in it for very long.

I spent the first half of the movie laughing at it being completely cheesy and cornball. I was also very bored with it. It was pretty to look at, but I wanted something to happen. I liked the second half of the movie more, since it seemed like more things were happening and I was finally getting into the rhythm of the movie.

I know Gwenyth Paltrow’s character really bugged Jer since he kept yelling at her to shut up for the first half of the movie. He finally quit doing it for the second half so maybe she grew on him or he was just numb to it all.

If you watch it on DVD, I recommend watching the bloopers. They are pretty funny.
