    Default Old People who motivate Me

    Micky

    General Patton

    These guys may be senile but I love'em
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    I saw that film about Patton the other day. It was kind of stupid that it didn't include his death, but otherwise I liked it.

    I don't like Rocky.

    Well make one. As we all know, if there isn't a youtube video it didn't happen.

    The film did not depict Patton's death because he died an ignoble death in a freak car accident. An accident which, by the way, happened after the war and after Patton returned to Europe from a hero's welcome in the US. The car accident was such that the speed of impact was no more than 20-30 mph. Patton hit his head in such an odd way that despite the slow speed the impact inflicted a mortal head wound. In any event it would have been a terrible way to end the film. They foreshadowed his meaningless death in the final scene, with that heavily laden pushcart nearly killing him as it rolled out control down a steep street in his direction. Having Patton walk his timid bull terrier 'Willie' off into the windmill dotted horizon was a wonderful way to end the film... and a none too subtle reference to Don Quixote & Pancho Villa.

    Rocky is a great underdog story! Just treat the first Rocky movie as the only one in the series and it becomes a much better film.
