It must have been hard, being jews no less, to not give the cunt a good shoeing whilst in custody.

If the film is correct they had strict orders to bring him to trial which was unprecedented but then Eichmann was ''big fish'', the biggest fish of all you might say post-Nuremberg, and this trial was going to be screened globally. I think the film implies Peter Malkin, who led the operation to capture Adolf Eichmann, was a member of Tilhas Tizig Gesheften (''Lick My Arse Business''); these were former members of the Jewish Brigade, a formation of the British Army recruited in Palestine, who then, using their British uniforms, vehicles and credentials, went on a rampage throughout occupied Germany bumping-off ex-Nazis/SS. I suspect both the Jewish Brigade and TTG were a source of inspiration for Tarantino's (American) ''Inglorious Basterds'' - https://www.thelocal.de/20090830/21581

I don't know if this is true about Malkin being in TTG but he was definitely in Haganah which was an Israeli paramilitary formation which supplied many in the Jewish Brigade.

Got a busy week at the movies, going to see Pulp Fiction tonight, then Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is a week...but...but but but but but, my favourite, drum roll please...(I don't get excited about things in general, I don't tend to give a fuck but this i'm excited about!) Apocalypse Now....I'll repeat that, Apocalypse Now...one more time Apocalypse fuckin' Now, in the cinema, that new fuckin' final cut thing! :D  Its in the new cinema in town which is like a big IMAXey thing, I dunno what the fuck an IMAX is but a quick google tells me it means a big fuckin' screen and good picture, works for me!

Apocalypse Now...I fuckin' missed A Clockwork Orange when it was screened at my local thinkin' 'fuck it, you've seen it a million times anyway' in one of my more cynical, can't be bothered moods so I weren't about to miss this.  Yeah...Apocalypse Now :D

I remember watching a documentary about Nuremberg and like, though I don't remember fuck all about it it seems to me that like...who was it Goebbels with the cynanide pill?  Now could you let that shit happen?  Speer got out eventually didn't he and wrote books, Speer was the architect if I recall?  Donitz got a ten stretch...whereas Von Ribbentrop got death, I don't see why Donitz got the softer touch.  Hess was the only one of the really big names who got proper fucked and served out his stretch.  Now, I'm not a big one for human suffering and you will rarely see me celebrating at anyones death or lifelong misfortune but...I dunno, overall, when I look at Nuremberg...well, OK, a fair few were hung weren't they so perhaps I'm talking bollocks.  Goebbels should not have got away like that.  I suppose he was gonna hang anyway so it make no odds. 

I wonder what would've become of Hitler had he survived.  Death penalty most likely but its still like...not a nailed on certainty cuz he was the governer of em all weren't he so perhaps he would've been made an example of in a more unique way.  I could just imagine Longford in the 60s campaigning for his release :lol:

- Göring with cyanide, cheating the hangman.

- Ribbentrop executed at Nuremberg 

- Others executed at Nuremberg: Hans Frank (governor of the Polish ''General Government''), Jodl and Keitel (German Army lackeys), Rosenberg (Nazi ideologist), Sauckel, Julius Streicher (publisher of antisemitic rag Der Stürmer) and Seyss-Inquart.

- Goebbels killed himself in the Führerbunker soon after Hitler and Eva Braun's suicide. Goebbels and his wife Magda killed their six kids in their sleep before shooting themselves outside the Führerbunker in a spot close to where Hitler's body was cremated and buried. It is all dramatised in the film Downfall (2004).

- Speer was imprisoned in Spandau until 1966 and wrote books which are fascinating and vital for historians on the inner workings of the Third Reich. Yes, architect, he and Hitler worked on designs for Hitler's Berlin, ''Germania'' as it would have been called.

- Dönitz got ten years. Utter Nazi zealot but just ran the German Navy really.

- Hess had served time in Britain don't forget, including the Tower of London, as a consequence of his infamous flight in 1941. After VE-Day he was transferred to Nuremberg and ended up in Spandau.

The Reich biggies (in loose order) were Hitler, Göring, Himmler, Goebbels, Hess, Speer, Ribbentrop, possibly Bormann - and 4 of them committed suicide (Himmler in British Army custody). Goebbels would have probably been executed hadn't he killed himself because Julius Streicher was executed but that would have been controversial as with Streicher, because all Goebbels did was utilise propaganda, creating horrible antisemitic films and media. Julius Streicher merely published quasi-pornographic antisemitism.

Streicher was utterly foul. 

If you are going off crimes against humanity, specifically the Jews, the thorough bastards, the main architects of the Final Solution, you'd probably go: Heydrich (executed by British trained Czech agents in 1942), Himmler, Hans Frank, Eichmann, Höss (Auschwitz) - too many to name and they are all utter scum but in a loose order of those having the most power. Göring, although he didn't get his hands dirty, shouldn't be left off the list because it was his order which convened the Wannsee Conference in 1942.

The Shining (1980)

Love The Shining but I never thought it was scary.  I watch it for Nicholson's over the top performance and of course Kubrick's direction.  I always thought it was interesting that Stephen King did not like the movie, mostly because of Kubrick.

I don't think he really made genre movies after a certain point, they were more like 'how could i film this?' movies.

On topic:

Rush Hour (1998)

Scary Stories to tell in the Dark  It was surprising good for a PG13 movie. I recommend it.

I read the book The Shining and I think it was way scarier than the movie. Everytime they would go into that woman's room, I felt chills. The ending of the movie was so different from the book.

I remember seeing this one many years ago in the middle of the night, and I don't get spooked easily, but this one did a good job at exactly that. It probably didn't help that I listened to the real audio from the exorcism of Anneliese Michel afterwards, which this movie is based on.

I'm always scared to watch anything about animals because I'm afraid of them showing them being hunted by other animals and eaten. I know it's the circle of life, but I just can't stand watching it. I know it happens but I don't want to watch it. My dad watches all the nature shows, but it's just too much when he watches lions or alligators hunting and eating their prey.

Aw, you softie :) but yeah, it’s tough on those shows. For me especially when the camera shot is close enough to see the preys eyes. Watching the light leave their eyes.

but I love me a cheetah documentary. 

you might like this one then, it’s about their personalities and social lives if I understand correctly.

i know some people who are against eating meat. They show movies of the transport and slaughter and every ugly detail. You’d definitely not want to see any of those. Let me tell you!

The Shining was a pretty personal book for King so i can understand his dissatisfaction with the adaption. Kubrick underplayed the alcoholism angle, totally changed the Wendy character, and pretty much made Jack crazy from the start when it was supposed to be a slow decent into madness. That said King made his own adaption and it was a god awful boring mess. Kubrick meanwhile was a master filmmaker and knew how to make it interesting on screen.

Definitely,  that was my only minor beef, that Nicholson was pretty much bonkers from the start.  But that's not completely true.  Up until and through the scenes where he and his family were being shown around the hotel he was portrayed as normal.

Its most noticeable in the scene where they are in the care heading to the hotel. You can tell Jack is annoyed and resents his family already.

True, where they're taking about the Donner party.  But I always thought that was foreshadowing.

Watched Apocalypse Now Final Cut in the cinemas.  Alright, 'final cut', they basically just lopped the bit with the Playboy Bunnies stranded in the helicopters bit off and all the bits where Brando is in non sillohuette.  Basically the bits where he has Willard tied up and reads to him from Time or Life or whatever magazine it is, ending with 'how does it smell to you soldier?'.  Still, brilliant film and absolutely mindblowing to watch it on the big screen.  IMAX no less.  Its a dirty great fuck off screen really.  Liked it though.
