Star Wreck - In the Pirkinning

This movie is an internet legend and shouldn't require much explaination. In short it's a Star Trek meets Babylon 5 parody. It oviously ain't an anime.

The storyline goes something like this: Captain Pirk along with his subordinates - the Plingon Dwarf and the Android Info - is stranded in earth's past and decides to conquer the world. Who cares about time paradoxons if you live a shitty life in finnland when you could be traveling the universe anyway!

Star Wreck has a pretty long tradition but this movie was the first one that included professional CGI and human actors (you might enjoy the wiki entry for more info). And it's a feast for the eyes watching the spaceships of the Star Trek and Babylon 5 universe blasting each other apart. The story is pretty funny too, including many insider jokes (Dwarf: Tactical is still missing a chair!) and gags and puns.

It was so popular, it was even dubbed to - japanese. Yes that's right, there's a japanese version out there, although I chose to release the original finnish version with english subtitles.

If you want different subtitles or the japanese version then simply pay the creators' homepage a visit and download everything there:
And if you're hooked you can even check out their older works, although they look quite less professional but are still quite funny. Also keep an eye out for their latest project, Iron Sky, where nazis went to the moon in 1945 ... and are now coming back. Might take a while till they finish, though ... it took them 7 years to shot their last movie.

I hope you don't mind the change from anime to finnish fan-made movies. I personally think it's more than worth it. Enjoy !
