Kamikaze

I watched the film "To End All Wars" on Saturday night. This was an interesting film about the treatment of Allied POW by the Japanese. One thing I found amusing about the film though was when "Yanker" was talking to one of the other prisoners he said that he was not a "Kamikaze". That word was introduced to the English language in the period from 1944 to 1945, while this movie was set a couple of years before that. I know I'm nit-picking, but still I think it's funny.

Planet of the Apes

I was watching Planet of the Apes last night (OK, it was actually already morning, but I hadn't been to sleep yet :-) ), and I noticed that the main ape hero made comments on human (i.e. real humans on Earth) great and harsh mistreatment of apes.
