Film Review – American Sniper (2015)

Seth Rogen made quite an interesting point about Clint Eastwood’s new film on Twitter the other day: “American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.”  The movie he’s referring to in Tarantino’s World War 2 opera is Joseph Goebbel’s Nazi propaganda film […]
