Subject: Steven Spielberg's new movie: VENGEANCE

It's gonna be about the Mossad terminating the perpetrators of the Munich Olympics massacre with extreme prejudice. For some odd reason, many Israelis are dismmayed that he would make a movie about it. Is it becoz a waiter was mistakenly killed? Or becoz they want to put the events behind them?

No - its because it's rumored that Speilberg is going to pull a moral equivalency, and make no judgement as to whether the terrorists were evil in killing innocent civilians. swhitebull

From what little I know, some complain that only the Mossad are depicted as having quandries, doubts or dillema over their work, but not the Palis who committed the outrages.

At least the story will be told to remind a new generation of what happened.

The title of the movie has been changed to "Munich".

And that's not all. Hollyweird is preparing to launch a barrage of anti-American, anti-Israel, and pro-Islamist movies, the likes of which haven't been seen since they went gaga over anti-Vietnam movies (the difference being, of course, the anti-Vietnam War movies showed up >after< the war was over) And they are being made by many of the "usual suspects", including Harrison Ford, George Clooney, and (who else?) Oliver Stone. "Munich" is just the tip of the iceberg. And I >really< resent them enlisting Alan Moore's "V For Vendetta" (which has been in Development Hell for over a decade) on the side of the terrorist-chic movement, because if they'd bothered to >read< the original graphic novel, Moore's hypothetical fascistic UK government was a Labour regime'- "Old" Labour, that is, as represented by George Galloway, "Red Ken" Livingstone, and the recently (but not soon enough) deceased R. Cook. Since these are the yobboes who are siding >with< the Islamists, I can only imagine how much they've mangled Moore's story to make their preferred political point. (Probably as much as they mangle Tom Clancy's novels. I shudder to think what they are, even now, doing to "Rainbow Six"......)

Completely off topic, but concerning Rainbow 6, you know, the UN does actually have a tactical firearms unit along very similar lines, I forget their name though.

At least the story will be told to remind a new generation of what happened. Just like Oliver Stone or Francis Ford Coppola told the story of Vietnam to a new generation. They both had it perfectly accurate (BARF!) The influence these leftists have is scarey. On the plus side, based on the movie reciepts this year, Americans are no longer being fooled. Guys like Tom Cruise are tanking at the box office.

A lot of that was due less to the movie "War of the Worlds" (which resembles any prior version of the story about as much as an elephant resembles a giraffe), than to Cruise's self-destructing in public over his Scientology philosophy. (Since I've read L. Ron Hubbard's books, including "Dianetics", this did not surprise me, at least.) More intersting in this context is that the careers of several Hollywood "A-listers" seem to be headed south since they began blithering about the war on terror, most obviously Johnny Depp and Susan Sarandon. (I don't count Alec Baldwin in this category, as his career was already tanking before 9/11- he took a wrong turn with "Miami Blues", and completely blew it with "Mercury Rising". Not to mention his professional suicide on Bravo, aka "In The Actors' Studio". He hould have stuck to playing The Shadow- he was actually good in that one.)

not seen WOTW... read the oringinal of course... are his films tanking? I thought WOTW and Colateral did pretty well? as for Johny Depp???... Pirates is a great film... probably for the overacting and the nice eye candy Keira... anyway.. do people actually take notice of actors political leanings???? we don't in the UK . although we do tend to take notice when big names hit the humantarium issues....
