And both absolutely suck (in my opinion).
There was a movie I saw about the Enigma Code machine where a team of American soldiers captured it in WWII. It was so historically inaccurate I remember being very annoyed. I can't even remember the name of the flick.

Things like that bother me also, because kids probably think thats actually what happened, rather than the truth. I wouldn't be surprised if some people really believe Abraham Lincoln was a vampire hunter.
