Did You Know?

Goofs

It is mentioned in the narration that Anton LaVey (founder of the "Church of Satan") was cast as the devil in Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby". This is an urban legend and absolutely false. He had no involvement in the film at all. See more »

Complete Piece of Unmitigated Crap !
11 June 2010 | by mariberianSee all my reviews

How can they call it the history channel? They should call it the fiction channel. What I can't figure is why every historic association in the country isn't up in arms condemning it. So many misnomers, misstatements, over simplifications and distortions I can't begin to describe here how misguided this unmitigated piece of crap is.

Oh well, what do you expect from the Hitler channel.

To say that Steve Jobs and bill gates were responsible for the computer revolution is complete bull manure.

The microchip was invented in 1959, IBM perfected it. IBM invented the PC, not bill gates. Not to tout IBM as some kind of hero, but that is just the fact. There were so many inventors and others responsible for the computer revolution before Jobs and Gates, this film does a disservice to them.

The film harps on from some puritanical perspective about the excesses of the hippies and their 'selfish' behavior and the stereotypical descriptions of their oh so terrible descent into indulgence of drugs. What simplistic moronic fools that produced this right wing piece of smelly propaganda.

This film seems to have been completed in almost every way from a strictly puritanical standpoint, that the hippies are not the norm, and that when the "norm" was (supposedly) re- established (I think they imply sometime after 1979), all was well with the world again.

I think it was produced by a bunch of right wing biblical fundamentalists trying to look cool and to downplay the most radically positive social revolution of the 20th century, and perhaps since the American revolution.

And I suppose the saddest part to me is that so many young people will watch this drivel and know nothing better than to believe it.
