James Lileks didn't like "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow". You'd think that someone so deeply enamored of film noir would love this cg Saturday-matinee serial. What's not to like? It has Deep Shadows. Hulking Architecture. A Dangerous Dame. A Dashing Hero. An Evil Villian. A wisecracking Sidekick. Robots. And perhaps most importantly, Zeppelins. Docking (as was originally intended by the architect) at the top of the Empire State Building. So what if they're all (except for a handful of actual human actors) computer-generated? it is, after all, the World of Tomorrow!
