  1. Very nice. I’m a bit of a latecomer to your reviews (first saw them about seven months ago), and have been very entertained by them. Looking forward to the rest of the Razzie series.
    One small thing: the treatment of Vietnam veterans by protesters isn’t really the myth you seem to think. Yes, anger towards the government was much more frequent and vocal, but veterans themselves being seen as killers was present too. Jim Webb (the former Senator) who served, and wrote a book (Fields of Fire) that fictionalizes his experiences, describes this in the introduction, where he encountered such feelings even while promoting the book in the late 1970s. Another vet, Bob Feist, wrote a piece on the subject where he describes his own experiences and addresses the myth claims (http://www.startribune.com/disrespect-for-vietnam-vets-is-fact-not-fiction/160444095/).
    Don’t let the above remarks make you think that you’ve earned my enmity for this inaccuracy or anything like that; it’s just something that bothered me a bit within an otherwise pretty good takedown of a pretty stupid film.
