Shootin' Buddy: "So, you want to see Valkyrie?"
Me: "Duh! Machine guns and dead Nazis?"
People are whining about the plot. People are whining about the lead actor. People are whining about how it's kinda hard to make a suspenseful thriller when everyone already knows the ending.
Me? As far as I'm concerned, enough machine guns and dead Nazis will cover for nearly any movie-making sin. I can't think of a single movie, from It's A Wonderful Life to Mary Poppins, that wouldn't be improved by a whole bunch of machine guns and dead Nazis. (And with the release of Defiance, I'll be able to get a double dose this month!)
