Movie of the Week: The Eagle has Landed.

Yeah, I know: Inception was starting to get stale.  I picked The Eagle Has Landed mostly because of this inside-blogball political piece demonstrating that there ain’t nothing so stupid that you can’t get a Media Matters for America hack like Eric Boehlert to confidently argue its side, but that’s not really relevant.  It’s a good flick – and if you don’t get the joke, well, I guess that means that you need to see the movie, huh?
