inert: I hate Illinois nazis.
rickythepenguin: Blues Brothers has not aged well. definitely overrated.

rickythepenguin: djslowdive: Oh come on, we're on a mission from God.some quotable lines, some cool scenes, but as a document, it just doesn't really hold up. animal house is still fantastic, caddyshack, the jerk, 48 hours, some others i'm spacing on (trading places!), coming to america (a bit later but still in the "early 80s comedy" genre) hold up but Blues Brothers doesnt'.neither does Fletch. go watch it. count the laughs. at least, if you don't fall asleep.

ArkPanda: it's largely about the music and this still holds up
SirEattonHogg: Fletch is dated because they decided to use too much 80's music synthesizer stuff. I'm thinking that film must have come on the heels of Beverly Hills Cop. Otherwise, its still pretty entertaining.
buckets_of_fun: By default, all FIBs are Nazis.
rudemix: He wasn't a Nazi, or a German. He was in a Ukrainian group that was SS lead.
mark12A: Well, this has a Fark connection because Farker James Lileks knows the guy, and they're all flabbergasted all this blew up. It's not everyday somebody you know gets accused of being a war criminal.
rudemix: He wasn't a Nazi, or a German. He was in a Ukrainian group that was SS lead.I know that might seem pedantic but Ukrainians never needed to be German or Nazis to rustle up a good pogrom or two.
Grimmhoof: weltallica: [img156.imageshack.us image 644x449]Hei~ruu!I'm intrigued, what is this from?
BolshyGreatYarblocks: [www.american.com image 446x282]American Stalinists, on the other hand, have a way of turning their lives around and becoming valuable supporters of those who matter in America.
