whenhiphopdrovethebigcars: *grin* yeah Killing Zoe is fun to watch too - well anyway, if you like political cabaret you might like that movie too ;-)

Gickies Gageeze: yes i have been there once - verry interesting history, but what was interesting from your point of view?

well the whole thing was interesting, but there is one thing that i remember most about the tour inside the building...

you know they have that car that was used as a vehicle to sneak people away and had the bullet-holes?

well, apparently only some of those were real. there were a few holes apparently created afterwards. and then there was a sign at checkpoint charlie, that asked "why would they make it look worse than it was?"

and i didnt know!

Reality isn't spectacular enough anymore to the "Hollywodized" people

I remember a "making of" a movie which name i forgot when they said they increased size of the Colosseum to 110% because the original one wasn't impressive enough.

People start to take Movies for real and now our reality must be "improved" to fit the expectations
