nicole kidman death railway ghosts the railway man colin firth world war ii

This is so sad!!!

Nicole Kidman's new movie with Colin Firth is based on real life tragedies that occurred during WWII and, when she visited the site where they occurred, she swears she felt the presence of ghosts!

The flick is about the Death Railway, an engineering project in the Pacific Theater of the war that took the life of many an Allied soldier.

When Nicole met with Eric and Patti Lomax, the real life couple the movie is based on, Patti cautioned her that visiting the places in Thailand where the Death Railway was constructed would make her see ghosts!

Sure enough, it did!

George Clooney & Matt Damon Save Paintings & Shoot Bad Guys In New Monuments Men Trailer!

The Monuments Men movie kind of looks like Ocean's 11 (minus Brad Pitt) meets Saving Private Ryan (if Private Ryan was a work by Pablo Picasso)!

In this new trailer, Matt Damon and George Clooney play soldiers who want art to continue to leave a lasting impression (or post-impression) on society, as they attempt to save some of Europe's greatest cultural monuments before they're destroyed by the Nazis who stole them.

Hmm maybe they can save OUR National Monuments, seeing how they're all closed from the government shutdown! Some of those have art in them!

Ch-ch-check out this new trailer and behold the art of war (above)!!!

S.W.A.T. Star & World War II Veteran Steve Forrest Dies At 87

Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Sad Sad

steve forrest dies

So, so sad.

S.W.A.T. star Steve Forrest passed away on Saturday at the age of 87 in Thousand Oaks, California.

In addition to his many other roles, the actor, who was surrounded by family in his final moments, most notably spent two years on the 70’s action show as head of the police department’s special weapons and tactical unit.

What’s more, Steve was a World War II veteran, having served at the Battle of the Bulge. Following the war, he studied theater arts at UCLA and was quickly discovered by none other than Gregory Peck himself.

Our thoughts are with his wife, Christine, his three sons, and his grandchildren.

Shia LaBeouf To Fight In A Fury With Brad Pitt Next??!

Filed under: Brad PittFilm FlickersShia LaBeouf

shia labeouf brad pitt fury

He's baaaaaack!

Shia LaBeouf might've had his ego bruised when he was allegedly fired from Orphans, but it doesn't look like it's hurting his career much!

The controversial, opinionated actor is in talks to star alongside none other than Brad Pitt in the David Ayer written and directed flick, Fury.

Just judging from the title, it sounds like the PERFECT role for our angsty Shia! LOLz!

Alec Baldwin's bestie could be a member of Brad's elite posse as he leads a five soldier army into Nazi Germany during the peak of World War II.

The sure-to-be hit hasn't even been officially cast yet, but it already is set to be released Nov. 14, 2014.

Fingers crossed we get to see beefy LaBeouf take down the most evil villains of all time..

…And that there are no "creative differences" this time!!!!

We're sure even Shia knows Brad IS NOT a man you want to mess with!

Documents Reveal Nazis Were Enraged By Hitler-Mocking Dog

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

Nazis enraged by Hitler-mocking dog

Adolph Hitler must not have had much self esteem because old documents reveal that, months before the Nazi's Soviet invasion, the Nazis launched a smaller campaign against a dog named Jackie and her owner.

What got the Nazi's panties in a bunch?

A Finnish mutt raised its paw to its head, imitating the Hitler salute to Nazis!

What an AWESOME dog!

The mocking mutt ticked off the Nazis so much that the Foreign Office in Berlin even came up with plans to destroy the pharmaceutical wholesale company of its owner.

Klaus Hillenbrand, an expert who has written several books on the Nazi period and has examined the recently discovered documents, described the episode as "completely bizarre", saying:

"Just months before the Nazis launched their attack on the Soviet Union, they had nothing better to do than to obsess about this dog."

Jackie was owned by Tor Borg, a businessman from the Finnish city of Tampere and his wife Josefine, a German citizen known for her anti-Nazi sentiments, dubbed the dog Hitler because of the strange way it raised its paw high in the air like Germans greeting the Fuehrer with a cry of "Heil Hitler!"

Tor was actually brought in for questioning by the Nazis about his dog's unusual greeting habits and although Tor denied teaching the dog to perform this action, the diplomats wrote to the Foreign Office in Berlin:

"Borg, even though he claims otherwise, is not telling the truth."

The Nazi's were so offended that they had three different ministries – the Foreign Office, the Economy Ministry and even Hitler's Chancellory – involved in the scandal!

Thankfully, there was not enough evidence for the Nazi party to bring Tor Borg, his wife, or his dog to trial and they were not harmed. His pharmaceutical company is still in business today.

Hillenbrad says there's no evidence that Adolf Hitler was ever told of the case, even if the case made it all the way to his chancellory.

It's scary that something so SILLY could endanger a persons life!

Let's hope history will NEVER repeat itself like this.
