but i will concede that their singer is really good . . . to bad hes being wasted in that band

Catchy to me.

Not in the choruses or bridge.

No he isn't being wasted.

Manowar is like one of those bands where you either "get it" and it rules, or you don't "get it" and it seems ridiculous.

the only thing you really need to "get" is that you don't need high lyrical concepts or a clean cut image to make good music, you just need the chops. And Manowar have chops. They aren't the best, but they have 'em.

You have to be kidding me.

The Soviet Union invades the USA.

They actually have the military capability to pull that off.

But they run into trouble because of the opposition of a tiny group of teenage boys.

It's basically the Scooby-Doo version of World War III -- "and it would of worked too, if it wasn't for you meddling kids!!!"

And you don't think that's the least bit... silly?

Well the premise of the movie is good. Fighting back against the invaders, not giving in to oppression, etc etc, all that stuff. Basically showing how people should act in that type of situation.

Dude, it's an escapist popcorn flick designed to play on Americans' Cold War fears about how powerful and bad the Soviets are, while simultaneously stroking our egos about how noble and good we Americans are, and how plucky and determined and resourceful we can be (as opposed to those brutes with their tanks). It's completely transparent and banal. That's what makes it fun -- how preposterous and corny it all is. I would never have imagined that anyone in 2007 could consider it a serious piece of culture.
