Hitler's Children (1943) - I wanted to see this since I heard it was the top grossing film of 1943. As far as I can tell it was actually #4 and the competition wasn't too fierce either

still it did very well for a movie thats been forgotten. Attention grabbing title aside it's not that good though. It's "good" in the way that ,s ay, I accuse my parents is good. The leads are well chosen, the writing is solid in a perfunctory way and it has a beginning middle and end but you know its just gonna be the americans are good and the Nazis are bad.

the plot is a German kid (everyone speaks English though) falls in love with a girl at an American school thats somehow in Germany. She gets in trouble with the Nazis as they get more powerful and this causes him to reevaluate their program which he's doing very well at, hes like a captain or something

To reiterate: for a movie who's value is mainly historical its pretty good. Relative to movies in general its...not very artful

this poster is hilarious

2.5 /5

I have never seen this, so I can't comment on the quality of it, but . . .?! it has a history of being a very troubled production, which may be one of the reasons it was both a critical and box office failure.

Of course, it was a remake of the 1937 film, which included a cast of . . .

Dorothy Lamour -- Jon Hall -- Mary Astor -- C. Aubrey Smith -- Thomas Mitchell -- Raymond Massey -- Jerome Cowan -- and John Carradine, etc.

Direction by John Ford. Screenplay by Dudley Nichols with Ben Hecht doing some not credited work on it, and, of course based on the novel of the same title by Nordhoff and Hall, who are probably best known for their novel "Mutiny on the Bounty," which was also made into a film.

I have seen the 1937 version on TV, and it is everything you can expect with a cast, director, and screenwriter like that.

Pete's Dragon (2016)
A remake of the 1977 film.

Texas born and bred.
The writer is a Texan.
The director is a Texan.
The composer is a Texan.

And the cinematographer was from Montenegro.
At times it has been part of . . .
the Roman Empire
the Byzantine Empire
the Ottoman Empire
and now it is an independent nation once more.

Starring Oakes Fegley, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Robert Redford.

From little acorns mighty Oakes are grown. Though, he stands only 1.5 meters tall. He is busy for the rest of this year (2016) and next year (2017) as he has 3 films in post-production. And not the youngest of the Oakes, as he has a little bro.

The Howards. Keeping it in the family. Her father is Ron Howard. Her mother is actress Cheryl Alley Howard. Her uncle is Clint Howard. Her grandparents are both actors Rance and Jean Howard. And she has an younger sister Paige who is also an actress.

Robert Redford. If not the last, then one of the last male superstars still active as an actor in Hollywood. 80 years old this month (August.) He does not look a day past 79. Making his TV debut in 1960 and his film debut 5 years later in 1965.

One of the better remakes I have seen, as they almost totally reversed everything from the 1977 film.

1977: the past. Over 100 years ago.
2016: the present. Today

1977: Maine
2016: Pacific Northwest

1977: musical comedy
2016: dramatic fantasy

1977: No
2016: Yes

1977: animation
2016: CGI
Not so much in the 1977 film, but . . .?! it surprised me that covering it in fur/hair made it a far warmer character than you see in most reptilian dragons, whether friend or foe.

Afro-Americans in cast
1977: No, or, at least I don't remember any.
2016: Yes, several, including some in prominent roles.
I remember that was one of the complaints about the 1977 film was the lack of Afro-Americans in the cast.

And one of the in-jokes referencing back to the original film, which one can see in the trailer for the 2016 version, is the conversation between the back sheriff and his white deputy, while in pursuit of the dragon. That was the same conversation as Jim Dale and Red Buttons had in the 1977 film.

Next time: the animated Moana will be out in Thanksgiving, but . . .?! There'll likely be something before then.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
