That's all fine and well, Gear Guardian (permission to use capital Gs, please). But the question is: what does that have to do with the subject of this thread? This thread is about Hitler's...

I'm 36 years old, and I spent decades educating myself so that I know more about the conditions of Germany in the 1920s and 1930s than most people, save those who were awarded a doctorate. And I do...

Dating KOTCS by using the Billboard charts

The title sounds wacky, I'll admit, but hear me out: the film takes place in 1957, but there's no obvious telltale signs as to when in that year it takes place, right? Well, now I'm gonna give you...

I think I might have an idea how they're making this work: probably, as someone already noted, they're targeting areas where piracy is prominent. What they do is, they have different sound drops in...

It would be pointless to do a movie about it - the El Dorado/Akator stuff is now used already, and seeing two movies in a row on the subject would be nothing any audience would necessarily want,...

I think we can safely assume that he DID have other lovers, but that those characters are for other stories, thus far untold.

All the same, I think it may be telling that he is in a bleak,...

And one more thing: you never mentioned if you would be "more than happy" if Alan Rickman were at the head of a small gang of Russian villains or villains of another stripe. And remember, the point...

The villain HAS to be an armed force. More to the point, the villain has to be someone IN POWER at the time of the adventure. That's why the Neo-Nazis or Nazi refugees or escaped Nazi war criminals...

Hell, even the theme assigned to Spalko - one of only two discernible new themes (the other was for the Skulls) - didn't sound all that Russian to me.

In any case, this is something Agent Spalko and...

Stanforth may in fact have been the key to resolving this, if one cares to strictly speculate about it: the board of regents was suddenly faced with the rather hard-to-hide embarrassment of having...

Mac probably thinks he's the pinnacle of physical perfection too, but that doesn't make it true. That only happens when Zemeckis directs him. :p

Actually, Stoo, you may want to keep bagging on Luceno anyway. His choice of May 1886 means an inconsistency. It would mean that Remy was midway through his thirtieth year in September 1916, not his...

Stoo,

I got the date from two sources. The Luceno adaptation The Mata Hari Affair stated he was thirty-five in September 1916, making his birthdate roughly 1885. Luceno's book for DK, the Ultimate...

Remy Baudouin was born in 1886. He would have been seventy-one years old in this picture. He could never have kept up in World War II in the same capacity as Mac would have. Nor would there have been...
