Nazi Drip-fest

Monday was delectably dreary- *bliss* - so I was much in the vein to go to the cinema. Various folk told me I could see a film where Nazis get shot. No, no, no, sez I - I don't want to see some Nazi drip-fest. So I unwittingly went see The Reader starring Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes at the local art film moviehouse.

So I went to see a movie I'd heard nothing about, but I liked the prinicpal actors. Guess what? Nazis! Dripfest! The world is lousy with 'em. Can't get away, apparently. Anyway, it was a gorgeous and sad movie. I kept thinking of Rocky Horror singing "I'm at the start of a pretty big downer!"

I'll prolly skip Valkyrie, as I'm not down with the Tom Cruise scene and all that, but if he made a movie appropriate to the comic cover at the right, I'd totally go see that movie.

A few thoughts:

Isn't there a rule that says something like, "Keep your shirt buttoned until you are ready to fire." Or something like that?

What kind of holster does she use with an outfit like that?

And I think that's a "left-handed" 1911.

I think she's already fired, Turk, and that shirt appears to be buttonless.

Now THAT's a Valkyrie!

DirtCrashr - that's what I'm talking about! We can even forgive her for not having the helmet with the horns on

I won't say it...heh.
Playing loudly "The Ride of the Valkyries" on a small stereo while camped out at the motorcycle GP races, to offset the noisome heavy metal blasted by goobers, garnered a few style points from nearby campers.
