What the Summer Blockbusters taught me about history

August 11, 2011

“X-Men: First Class” presented to us what really happened during the Cuba Missile Crisis.

“Transformers: Dark of the Moon” showed us that the moon landing accomplished a very different task than what we were led to believe.  Buzz Aldrin said so.  You kinda have to believe the man who was there, right?  RIGHT?

“Captain America: The First Avenger” displayed an insight into World War II that we would have never known (unless you loosely read the comic books).

I don’t know what “Cowboys and Aliens” taught us about history, but it’s there.

We also need to be afraid of yellow (the color), bosses, monkeys, vampires, and the dark.  It’s been a productive summer.
