    I read that they are remaking Missing in Action with a wrestler in the title role. Chuck Norris played Colonel Braddock in three MIA movies. I also remember watching a movie about the Indianapolis. Stacy keach played the captain of the doomed ship. David Caruso also was in it as an officer who is drowned by his own crew due to the fact they are drinking salt water.

    I see that Tom Cruise is slated to appear in Flying Tigers. Is he trying to become like Tom Hanks and focused on WWII?

    Probably not. Just that this is where the paychecks are coming from.

    Better watch out for using the Come Here Boy and Good Boy lines-you might be considered racist by the idiot PC crowd. I was considered a racist one time when I was at a WalMart in Houston. This was all because after waiting appx 45 minutes and after asking severla walmart employees for help on finding an item-all I got were hand gestures and blankl stares from them-because none of them allegedly did not understand or speak ENGLISH. Last time I checcked-ENGLISH IS the main language in this Country. Anyway, I got fed up of waiting for help and asked to see a manager-I got a VERY stupid and VERY PC one by the name of sharon. When sharon waked up to me-I was rip-roaring mad and had an angry look on my fact. The first thing this twit said was: You look very angray." I felt like saying-NO ship lady-and you would be too had you waitind for helpfrom seveal employees who walked right past where you were standing and none of them helped because none could speak English. I then said-doesmn't wm hire anyone who speaks English? What I got back from this twit wass: your a racist, and what I told the twit in german was that she was a sub-human half-breed.

    No-that word is not a racist word. I hear people here everyday call someone else a _igger. If the word is looked up in the Dictionary-you will find that it is not a racist term-though its used as such.

    That word has a bad rep because of being misused-samething can be said about the word: "Gay". Gay means-happines. I had a first rate teacher whose first name was Gay.

    I guess that Tom Cruise will be playing the John Wayne role. Wayne was in the original Flying Tigers movie.

    It will be hard to leave the word Nigger out since it was also a codeword for successful attack on Mohne dam.

    Auf Wiedersehen Finnland

    A documentary released in Finland this month on those hundreds of women who at the end of the war left Finland to be with their German husbands, the relationship which had developed during wartime. Also it covers the later return to Finland and how they were treated. Only now is it possible for these people to tell about their life back then.

    I believe Flying Tigers is directed by John Woo, who also directed Mission: Impossibe 2 with Tom Cruise in it.

    Ok this is gonna be hit.

    Don't know if anybody posted this.

    It's for the movie Iron Sky.

    The Story of Iron Sky
    Towards the end of World War II the staff of SS officer Hans Kammler made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity.

    From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ‘45 to found the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the dark side of the Moon. This base was to build a powerful invasion fleet and return to take over the Earth once the time was right.

    Now it’s 2018, the Nazi invasion is on its way and the world is goose-stepping towards its doom.

    About the Film
    Iron Sky is a science fiction comedy being produced by Energia Productions, Blind Spot Pictures and co-produced by 27 Films. At the moment, the production is gearing up with costumes being made, sets designed and plans being finalized. After the shoot we will enter a year long post production process.

    Red Tails is not directed by George Lucas, he was the writer of the story. The director is Anthony Hemingway.
