It's Smoke, with a broken leg. Cleverest move ever made.
As much as I don’t like many of Zack Snyder’s directorial decisions, I would pay a lot to see his fully filmed 5 arc DCEU/JL story. I find it to be one of the most tragically unrealized visions alongside Jodorowsky’s Dune
Here is another probably unpopular opinion, I would prefer to see Jodo’s Dune over Villeneuve’s version
Pixels is a good and underappreciated film.
This might bring heat on me, but I utterly dislike Schindler's List. The movie feels like fetishization of Holocaust packed with Jewish stereotypes. It also tries to antagonize Soviet Union, which I feel was really disrespectful and insensitive given the losses that Soviet people suffered fighting off Nazis and their contribution to freedom of Jewish people.
I think vastly superior movie on the subject is The Pianist (2002).
It says virtually nothing about the Soviet Union. The only Soviet character in the movie is the officer at the end who points them toward the nearest town, so I don’t know what makes you say that.
Antisemitism in the Soviet Union - Wikipedia
It's the only Soviet character in the movie and he's shown in the most negative light.
The most negative light of what? All he does is tell them they’re free and points them toward the nearest town.
What's the context of that scene?
Go YouTube it, I’m not gonna tell the movie for you.
The hills people die on.
Welp... Guess Putin has his own folk with tongues squarely placed on patent leather footwear.
I'm not asking you to tell me the movie. I'm asking how you see that scene. The movie isn't just plot points.
You seem to be angered by something. Is it Putin?
You seem to be in love with someone... Is it Putin?
Where are you two registered? Will it be a big wedding?
Careful... I hear the government there has an issue with public "pride".
Serious suggestion. Go visit a doctor. This obsession is unhealthy.
Doctors? Can you find me one NOT about to be thrown... Oh... I'm sorry... Can you find me one that isn't going to fall out of a tall building's window under mysterious circumstances that all the Putin oral boot cleaners will make excuses for?
My suggestion? Quit now. You're bringing the SNES Zapper to a gun fight.
What did you turn this thread into? Go back to "Russia positioning for major conflict" and share you paranoia there.
Paranoia... Like claiming SCHINDLER'S LIST is Anti-Soviet and disrespectful of Mother Russia because of one scene at the end where a Russian character points somewhere? That kind of paranoia?
You are not good at this.
You're letting Superman down. Try having a respectful conversation next time.
Schindler's List is anti-Soviet, among other things. And bringing this issue up triggers some individuals so much.
Or maybe people are annoyed by blatant misrepresentations.
The literal only times Schindler’s List even mentions Russia or the Soviet Union is when Schindler threatens the two Nazis who are afraid of getting sent to Russia (because the Eastern Front was a hellscape) to twist their arms into giving him back his plant manager Itzhak Stern from the train, and at the end of the movie when the Soviet officer rides into the abandoned (by the Nazis) Factory. He announces they’re free, is a little at a loss as to where they should go considering there’s tons of people who hate Jews whatever direction they go in, and when they’re looking for food, points them in the direction of the nearest town. He’s onscreen for like thirty seconds and isn’t particularly portrayed in any positive or negative kind of way, except he seems fairly friendly and not especially anti-Semitic, so I don’t know where you get it from that he’s “shown in the most negative light” considering the movie is full of people being casually executed and Ralph Fiennes’ character enjoys randomly shooting people from his balcony in the morning and terrorizing his maid....
Yeah... Superman is a well know carrier of the water for people that have journalists killed.
Russian officer (shown talking to them from a horse, like being above them): You have been liberated by the Soviet army! (implied taking credit for what Schindler did)
Itzhak Stern: Have you been in Poland?
Russian officer: I just came from Poland.
Itzhak Stern: Are there any Jews left? (implying "whom did you liberate? what took you so long? everyone is probably killed", and the officer looks at him with a disgust/perplexed expression)
Michael Lemper: Where should we go?
Russian officer: Don't go east, that's for sure. They hate you there. I wouldn't go west either, if I were you. (not friendly and simply not true)
Chaim Nowak: We could use some food.
Russian officer: Isn't that a town over there?
Does it matter how much screen time does it have?
Yea, if you’ve no interest in honest discussion, I’m out.
Again... Who is the paranoid party here?
What's so dishonest about it? I literally quoted the scene and explained why I think so.
