one of Brooks' lamer moments, if I must say. Way lamer than 'The Producers' even, which I always thought was....... PRETTY LAME (and the only early Brooks yours truly wasn't very fond of). I actually watched the original, 1942 film 'To Be or Not to Be', from which I assume Brooks' was a remake/rehash of, and it was GGGRRRREEEEAAAAAATTTTT. Looking at pop culture of the late 20th century, in retrospect, I don't think anybody really cared much about Adolf Hitler (or the Nazi's) by the late 60's. Except Brooks.

Now that it's 2011, it appears there is more footage of Hitler available to ANY/everyone than ever before in history. Basically, every minute that he was in front of a camera (from the late 20's to 1945) has been saved by someone and, with time, put online. Youtube alone probably has maybe 50-100 hours (could be way off on that number; guesstimating here) of original footage of 'DAS FUHRER' scattered all over, and when I began researching him and WWII a few years back, I was surprised how much there actually was to be found.

And, after viewing quite a lot of it, you really start asking yourself (at least I did): is this supposed to be the most evil man in human history? Satan incarnate? etc. Granted, if you look at the footage of the concentration camps, and only that, you'd come to a different conclusion; for reasons understandable, though, there's not a great deal of that kind of recorded video footage (late 1930's, logical to assume that wherever there WAS a video camera to be found, it wasn't in a broken-down shack where starving people, barbwire fences, and hardly a bite to eat existed.)

And no, I'm not a Holocaust denier. Just found it typical how with but a few words, Christian's "EVIL HITLER/NAZI'S" wording was so brief and almost not even necessary for the review. Just like this stupid [bleep!]ing comment of mine.

Oh, and Silvestri is the [bleep!]! (he good)

Naturally, Adolf Hitler was, above all, a man. He ate, he breathed, he loved just like any other person. Does it mean that his actions are justifiable? Not a chance.

On a different story, Alan Silvestri is indeed the [bleep!]! I support this score and the sound used, even though it isn't the masterpiece that his previous efforts were, but it's still what a superhero movie should sound like: Heroic and memorable!
