Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

If ever there were a movie where the previews absolutely turned me off beforehand, this was it. I'm glad I saw it anyway.

A lot of love went into this film. It's over the top silly, and Jude Law is the perfect leading man here. I've never been a big fan of Gwyneth Paltrow or Angelina Jolie, but they both do well in this film, perhaps because the characters are all caricatures--but in this film, any attempt at real depth in character would have rung false. It's just a rollicking good time, as long as you roll with the cheesiness, and the cheesiness is so infectious that it's hard not to.
