    MetropoLESS!

    It should also be noted thay Hitler didn't run on exterminating anyone. He ran on ficing the economy, getting back at France and England for the defeat of Germany in WWI and for fighting against "corrupt" politicians. These were all things even moderate Germans supported at the time.

    I'm All Mixed Up!

    My father looks quite a lot like the actor Michael Horse (Deputy Hawk) from Twin Peaks.
  3. Yeah, I really don't think it's all thay clever. The transition from silent to soubd movies scenes were okay but I really don't think it's one of the greatest films ever like many say. Just didn't click with me.

    I thought all those "Macht Deutschland Vom Marxismus Frei" signs were a gag and he was secretly Socialist.
  6. I thunk Vautrin dislikes the Balfour Declaration and Britain's involvement with that specifically.

    iphone X vs cheaper smartphones

    I got a new phone today too! I didn't want the Iphone though so I got a differebt one that was only about 100 dollars. The Iphone is way too big and you can't conceal it on you.

    February 2019 schedule is up

    I've seen the Desert Song before. Subpar film version of the operetta with a WWII era message forced in. The music is nice but not a particularly good movie

    GOP madness Unbound...

    In Carson's defense, he at least admitted he was unqualified for the job.

  16. I've always considered "pretty" as more for children and young women and "beautiful" for women with actual sex appeal.
  17. Well said! (This is where a picture of Brigitte Bardot or Sheryl Lee would go if I was on my computer)

    Liberal Murphy Brown vs. Conservative Avery Brown

    I think they should bring back Quantum Leap.

    Liberal Murphy Brown vs. Conservative Avery Brown

    Honestly not surprising. Murphy Brown never achieved "cult" status or had reruns on many channels like Roseanne did. I'm absolutely not surprised the reboot didn't gain popularity. The reboots of Twin Peaks and Roseanne were successful because those were very popular TV shows.

    Your Favourite Foreign Language Films from 1979

    The entire series is up on YouTube without subtitles but I followed along with my books on the series and various websites that had the film summaries. Like most propaganda films it is not difficult to follow. The acting and dialogue are very "obvious" with what they are trying to communicate (for example when it shows pictures of the main character in Japanese uniform under the sun and he is speaking in a sad voice he is reflecting on his forced service in the Pacific during the Japanese occupation, when it shows a montage of US soldiers and he is speaking in a hushed voice he is angry at the US). The books I have did help a lot with understanding it though. I have Jenkins autobiography from when he returned to the US and some other books on NK film.

    Your Favourite Foreign Language Films from 1979

    Unsung Heroes -this is a film series from North Korea that is very heavily influenced by James Bond and espionage films (which were a favorite of Kim Jong Il). The first two movies revolve around a Korean journalist working in Europe who returns to South Korea to see American soldiers stationed in his country. He is asked by a North Korean agent to spy for the DPRK and he gets involved in the world of espionage. This movie is set around the Korean War but the foreign cars used are all 1970s American and British cars. The audience probably wouldn't know the difference though. Shots of England seem to stand in for the outside world too. The best scene is in the second movie where the US soldiers make a Korean woman in a car and one with a gun face off in a deadly opstical course in a scene reminiscent of the Connery Bond films. Interesting films worth a look.
