Robbins: Loving the Aliens
Interesting scene in the new "War of the Worlds" remake.
It's when Tim Robbins exhorts everyone to stop resisting the aliens. He explains that the invasion is really a result of predatory economic and political behavior by the United States.
Under the circumstances, he says, the aggression of the aliens is understandable and frankly we deserve it.
Then one of those huge Alien robot things stomps him flat.
Okay, that's not really in the movie.
I won't be seeing it -- I don't give my money to liars, cowards and traitors. And Mr. Sarandon is all three.
P.S. Is that a firearm he's holding in that picture? I would expect he'd be opposed to the private ownership of guns. Funny.
