The comment of Haxan being banned in the US until 2001 is not correct. It was reedited and renamed _Witchcraft Through the Ages_ in 1968 by Metro Pictures Corporation with an added narration by William S. Burroughs and a jazz score by Daniel Humair, This version appeared as part of a pledge drive on the Columbus, OH PBS in the 1970s.
Both versions were provided on The Criterion Collection DVD which first came out in 2001. The Criterion Collection version gives some background on things stated in the film.
"They hired a director named Roger Corman and...", Really? Just gonna slide his name in there like it was any old director? If you are intentionally trying to make schlock, Corman is obviously the maestro and he deserves a mention as such.
"A director named Roger Corman"? You say that like you've never heard of him and it's just something else to read off matter of factly in your script! He's only the KING of low budget B movies! For a guy doing videos on pop culture, you sound woefully ignorant of so much of it, simply reading whatever is put in front of you, and mispronouncing a lot of commonly known names!
Heimkehr was released in 1941, 2 years after the invasion of Poland. It was meant to justify the expulsion of ethnic Poles from the parts of Western Poland Germany annexed directly. It had no bearing on the invasion.
Conspiracy of Silence was also based on what was later proven to be a hoax. This key fact needs to be included.
Saw SW Holiday Special at a geek convention. It was...yeah, as bad as anyone has ever said it is. Some pieces were okay, Boba Fett's cartoon sequence probably the best bit, and the scenes with Chewy's father and the...viewing machine?...entertainment set?....those were the creepiest.
I remember the once hugely popular 1978 movie, Every Which Way But Loose, about a lone trucker (played by Clint Eastwood) and his sidekick Clyde, an orangutan (ape) making for a fun entertaining show when I saw it in the movie theatre. That is until emerging allegations of animal cruelty and the suspicious death of the oragutan during the making of the movie and frequent calling outs against the film production crews. Today this movie is almost completely forgotten.
Ca. 2.10 - Germany invaded Poland to get back areas that had been part of Germany 20 years before. The ethnic Germans living in Poland and in Czechoslovakia (a country that had never existed before) were subject to discrimination, abuse, violent pogroms, and so on, so of course they dreamed of being back in Germany where they were not an abused ethnic minority.
Imagine if California were lost to Mexico. How would the former Americans be treated? How would the former Americans feel?
This is why Germany took back parts of Poland and parts of Czechoslovakia. It had nothing to do with "world domination." That's just a dumbed-down history channel fairy tale told by the Allies to ourselves and it caught on because we, the victors, got to write the history.
A small point: UFO's are real. A UFO is merely something flying, that cannot be immediately identified. Ergo, whilst not all UFO's are 'Flying Saucers', all 'Flying Saucers' are UFO's. The description 'Flying Saucer' is odd, too. Kenneth Arnold saw a flight of nine anomalous aircraft in 1947, whilst flying near Mount Rainier in Washington State. He described them as 'Crescent shaped'. Their motion in relation to each other, though, he described as being similar to that of "A saucer being skipped across water". Arnold made sketches of the craft, which are definitely crescent shaped. I've had the 'Pleasure' of seeing the Star Wars Holiday Special. It's bloody dreadful - except for one segment, which is the first appearance of Boba Fett, in animated form. And many years later, Hasbro made an action figure of that first Fett.
The "Brave" is not that bad. The actors play well, the plot is interesting and the social message very strong. I have see it a long time ago, so I don't remember if the directing is horrible, but if I didn't notice anyting special at the time, it's probably not that bad.
Memory is vague but there is a German film in the 30s where the actress supposedly actually had sex in the film, she then went on to become a very famous Hollywood actress. At the very least, she ran around naked in it. The studio or her husband supposedly bought up all copies of that film so it would never been known to the public. Was it Dietrich?
In all fairness, UFO's are 100% real... UFO means you can't identify something that's flying, that absolutely happens all the time. Heck, there's times I can't identify what I find in the sofa!
Aliens are what's debatable! (Unless they are responsible for the petrified objects in the couch, but I'm pretty sure the sofa objects are from my kids)
I've got a South Korean dvd of The Brave. It's not great, but it's certainly not terrible. There's plenty of potential, and it kinda makes me wish it had done better, because I get the sense that Depp would have learned from the experience and his second directed feature would be pretty solid. Alas, his ego is as strong as tissue paper, so he buried the movie and never directed again.
Hitler wanted world domination? Did he actually say this or did the British and other allies say he did? I only ask because I know he pushed for peace with all the superpowers and they declared war on Germany first.
I still find it odd when in this day and age there are still people who try to believe in an unlimited area that there are not aliens. To me it seems to be up there with the same people that believe or still believe the Earth is the center of the universe and the earth is flat. It has been established that there are planets out there that have the same atmosphere. It would exceedingly unlikely that they do not have life on them. Time for people to let go of there arrogance and narrow mindedness.
There is a world of difference between believing its possible for there to be life elsewhere in the universe and that aliens have/are visiting Earth and the government is keeping it from us. And while it's a statistically probably for life to exist elsewhere, there are far more ludicrous things that billions of people believe then that life has been and will be the only source of life. Humans rarely make sense.
