‘Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow’: Fending Off Alien Robots, but Still Time to Flirt [NYT] – One of the most positive reviews of an SF film I’ve ever read at the Times, by Stephen Holden. He complains only of the murk (“at times the film is hard to see”), and that perhaps you darn kids won’t get what’s so special about 1939, and damns it by noting that Jude Law’s presence is not as earthy as that of Harrison Ford as Indy (well, duh).

Maybe I’m reading this through rose colored glasses, but these are the kinds of things I find myself writing when I review a film I really, really love, and find it hard to come up with meaningful critical things to say.
