With only one working fighter of their own, and five pilots anxious to fly it, the Dutch commander chooses George Collins to fly a mission to drop a 500-lb bomb on the Japanese carrier lying offshore. As the flight progresses, the commander asks the other pilots to tell him about George.

I guess it should be no shock when they are citing studies WRONG and using all info from decades ago. In fact in the USA most cancers are higher than in many other countries like Japan, Africa, Korea and so on. The difference is that they eat fresh not processed meats and lots of them, plenty of fresh veggies and fruits and little to no processed foods, carbohydrates or sugars. You can eat as much meat as you want and you won't gain weight, within reason of course. It's the type of meat that matters. If it's a processed burger that's in between a bun then; yup you will gain weight. And it'll be the bun the causes the most weight gain. Carbohydrates are not meant to be in your diet at all. Carbs actually break down as sugar which rises your insulin levels and when your insulin is high your body can't burn fat and so it just stores it. So if you keep eating carbs and sugars you rise your insulin and you never burn fat and so you just keep storing it. Carbs will also leave you feeling hungry again after a very short period of time. So you will keep storing fat and always feel hungry if you eat a lot of carbs. Plus sugar is addicting like a drug so you will also crave more carbs and sweets with the more you eat. This makes losing the weight and staying healthy impossible if you think meat is the problem. For example; when the woman in the movie was at Walmart and wanted a meatball sub, the call should have been to tell her to get a meatball salad. She could have the sub without the bread and she would lose the weight and be even healthier. There is one fact only that they have right and that is that we should not drink cow milk. In fact if you are going to ignore the warning to not drink the milk you must at least drink the highest fat milk possible. Cow's milk actually leaches calcium from the body. Plus it can activate certain cancer genes. I have NEVER drank milk in 33 years as I am allergic. I don't take calcium pills either. I had a bone density test two years ago and I have very dense bones. They are perfect. We need meat though and by meat I mean organic, free range antibiotic free, just plain healthy meats. There are certain things that you can't replace from plants and supplements. For one red meat has High levels of zinc. If your skin looks more wrinkled, your cuts take longer to heal, your sense of taste or smell changes, you get sick more often, you are having trouble getting pregnant while vegan or vegetarian than you might need more zinc or red meat.

She still plays this sarcastic, confused girl, but I don't know if that's due to the story and dialogue or to her. I give her the benefit of the doubt, because I think she can do better. And Jason Earles = same situation. I liked David Henrie, who showed a different side of himself, but he didn't get to show much of his acting chops in the limited screen time. The plot is thin and eclectic, doesn't work
(ag) wrote: A slightly missed opportunity to tell a story rarely seen on film. Once you get past the bizarre mixture of English and American accented Germans, Valkyrie is watchable. Casting Cruise was a mistake - he brought very little beyond a chiseled steely stare. Yet Singer did not make the most of the rest of his high calibre cast. It was all plot and exposition and hardly a shred of character to build empathy and understanding for their plight. This created a distinct lack of tension, as we weren't fully emotionally engaged with the characters and yearning for them to avoid the inevitable. Argo proved if you can get an audience to connect with the characters you can get them on the edge of their seats, in spite of the fact we know how the film is going to end. Less so here sadly. Valkyrie felt more like a big budget TV documentary dramatisation rather than an A-list Hollywood drama.

Quien la vea por el morbo de las escenas explicitas se llevara una gran sorpresa.

(mx) wrote: This is one of the most frustrating and distressing movies I have ever seen. The characters made me uncomfortable because Jack Nicholson has overbearing control issues and was such a manipulator. I don't find those people personally endearing at all. Though the script is hilarious at times. But I had a problem with relating to, "She is so lucky. Wish I had a selfish, irrasable old coot to reign in. I wish he would love me too."I found Helen Hunt's character great in itself. She was brilliant in her role. But why in the world would a woman with a self observing ego and great personality want someone as horrible as Jack? That did not fly with me. By the way. Jack? Great as always.
