kill the current notion of villains needing to be human at the end of the day.
bring back villains that killed because they enjoyed blood on their hands.
give me villains that destroy cities because of boredom.
give me narcissistic villains that destroy others because they never compare to themselves.
give me bad guys that no one wants to empathise with.
This is what moon Nazis were made for.
For those people who do not know precisely why this just made me burst into giggles, I must introduce you to Iron Sky (one of its taglines: “The Evil has landed”):
Texan!Sarah Palin is the president. Udo Kier is der Mondführer (FREAKING MOON FÜHRER) Wolfgang Kortzfleisch. THE NAZIS ATTACK EARTH IN FLYING SAUCERS AND SPACE BLIMPS.
Let it be noted that the director has in the past referred to torrenting works as a “compliment”, so if you want to check it out, do so. If you like it, buy it or consider donating when one of their projects goes up for crowdfunding!
If I may put on my feminist pants for a moment, I’ll also note that the film is the most epic example of a stealth female protagonist I’ve ever seen.
Contrary to expectations, the real protagonist of the film is Renate (the blonde one), a sheltered but kind Nazi (words I will never never ever use in any other situation) who genuinely believes theirs is the philosophy of peace because she’s grown up on the moon and is also slightly dense. (That speech you hear isn’t as ominous in the film as it sounds in the trailer, it’s her genuine and optimistic thoughts on the world. Her world is interrupted by American Pixie Dream Guy James Washington, whose arrival on the moon not only spurs the Nazis’ return to Earth but also her own development as a character and her realization of the real culture she’s been representing.
Main characters are also split 50/50 between male and female, and their gender and sexuality matter exactly as much as those of the male characters.They all get to be badass in their own way and nobody is someone’s simpering, easily kidnapped love interest, so the hookups between characters don’t feel like the only reason that character exists. It’s brilliant in its own little way.
Also, moon Nazis.
so i was self-checking out at the grocery store and this comely stranger and I had been flirting a bit, and after they had finished checking out they went
" I DON’T HAVE FLOWERS TO GIVE YOU BUT I WISH I DID BUT HERE HAVE THIS."

Guess who’s got a daaaaate
Everytime i see this i think this person looks so pretty and should be drawn in a disney style.
