If I were the Bundeswehr (besides having to eat for several hundred thousand . . . )

Filed under: cinema, Is he tall enough to reach the table?, mad bombers, neofascism, Scientology, Third Reich — Frontier Former Editor @ 10:29 am

I’d tell Tom Cruise, “Sure, you can film at our facilities, as long as you do some real method acting . . . like losing the arm and the eye and a few fingers . . . for real.”


  1. Did you know that Von Stauffenberg’s family has specifically objected to Cruise playing him?

    The S-heads of course are crying out against how little Germany has progressed in religious matters. But I think there’s a very real fear here.

    What is there to stop the Scientologists hijacking history and seizing the thread of the story to weave into their own?

    I still don’t understand why anyone takes them seriously. The Moonies make more sense. But as long as they’re allowed to pretend they have a religion instead of a racket, they should be treated as any other religion: deeply suspicious when they foray into the entertainment field.

    In Germany, many people see Naziism and Scinetology as twin sides of the same rusty coin.

    Wonder where the C of S stands on the Iraq venture? Given that they’re so against the behaviour of Nazi Germany, I mean.

    I haven’t noticed a lot of protests from that section of the “Hollywood Elite”.

    Oh, and let me clarify my biases: I had to live with an S-head. They’re all nucking futs; nasty and bigoted with it, too.

  2. Hey Frontier Editor,

    Loved the reference to my love life and Dresden and prototypical annihilation, but for some reason, none of your comments –for lack of a better word–“stick”. Not sure what the problem is. I approve them, but they never seem to survive the approval process.

    I’ll contact wordpress help to find out what the hell the dang deal is.

    I want your comedy on my site.

  3. …. ah, but how one’s Welt-und-Lebens-Anschauung would change if one were Mr Cruise’s Press Offizier

  4. You went and moved without telling me. But I tracked you down.

    Please email me all the details of the past few months whilst I have been in enforced exile.

    PS. Still keeping my eye out for Humbrol x
