Also, though I am as patriotic as the next guy, I have to agree that the American film industry is almost hopelessly mired in the mentality that it is essential to produce the cheesiest possible movies--and movies that treat the audience like complete, utter morons with no historical knowledge whatsoever, with the emotional knee-jerk reactions of five year olds.
I will never forget the science fiction movie Stargate. Started off great! Excellent special effects, cool plot line, suspense all the way. Everything went downhill fast when they started hanging out with the downtrodden slave humans through the gate, though. By the time the humans took on the 10,000 year advanced civilization's technological superweapons with flimsy spears, etc, I was ready to puke. When the little 14 year old slave boy Hadji was running away from a bad guy and they went into slow motion with the dramatic music, I knew he was going to bite it and started cheering, right there in the movie theater. Much to the annoyance of all the cretins watching it.
OK, sorry. You guys got me going--back on topic.
Yes, I'm sure the Russian films didn't mention the USA LendLease trucks without which their adaptation of blitzkrieg would never have worked. Especially since The State was producing all the movies up until a few years ago. Yes, I'm sure the English might lean a little towards their glorious struggle against the Huns, etc. But only in the USA will you find such a unique brand of nauseating, maudlin, trite garbage that gets people forking over billions of dollars for unadulterated schlock, everytime. I think it is the television culture, it literally rots the brain.
