Which film has really moved you , in changing your opinion, and really makes makes you think, even though you may well have known the facts already. However you may not have taken it seriously.

This is is on film that made me really think and feel. The last of his tribe

Yes I was thinking of his tribe. but at eh same time I was thinking about allthese natural tribes destroyed in North America, Canada , Africa, and South America, and Australia. But in South America there are many natural inhabitants completely extinct. Due to the Spanish and Portuguese. It makes me think. We western Europeans destroyed many races, and only a few hundred years ago. We are resposible for destroying entire races of people. How did it happen! Greed! No concern for others culture? We destroyed races and culture!! We destroyed other races . Think about it. We must have like alians from outer who came out to destroy their lands and them, and we did. We destroyed all of them . just like alians from outer space.

Where are the or the original people of Argentina, USA, Canada, Australia. New Zealand, Africa. How many of them have been killed. YES!!!! The majority of them, and in some cases all of them. Where are the natural inhabitants of venezuala? Barbados? Trinidad? Bahamas? No they souldn't be white, ex indian, or black. NO! Where are they?

So this is the film that moved me the most, not a blockbuster. but a nice watchable film. I don't normally like blockbusters any. I normally like soft quality classic style films that are well made. This one isn't, but there is something about it, and it certainly brings an argument of human feeling.

Das Leben der Anderen, (The Lives of Others), shows life under communism. the film follows a Stasi Officer assigned to spy on a couple, a Theatre Director and his actress wife. He is supposed to gather evidence that they are spying for the West (they are not). Eventually the Statsi persuade the actress to spy for them on her husband.It stars Ulrich Muhe, now sadly dead, and won many awards.

What makes the film so poignant is that Muhe is a former East German and when freedom came and their Statsi files were opened up to the public, he discovered that his wife had in fact been spying on him for the Stasi.

When asked where he got the inspiration for hi role he simply said, "I remembered."

Bels did not for a second suggest that you did, or that he did. But sometimes a good portrayal on screen can allow you to see a perspective that you had not considered before.

No one has a monopoly on insight or wisdom and for me, being open to new information or interpretations is the sign of an open mind.

Surely only a closed mind says "I cannot learn anything new?"

Milk made me see things a bit differently. In England there are adverts for jobs for homosexuals, ethnic minorities etc. Naturally this annoys people especially when looking for work.

Milk showed how important it is for minorities to feel like they are represented and what it is like when you aren't represented, it showed the other side that I hadn't considered before.

I learn lots of new things every day. Books, newspapers, current affair magazines, websites - these are great places for learning new stuff.

Movies are written to confirm what you thought you knew already, the "feelgood factor". Clint Eastwood has some Asian neighbours. He hates the Asian neighbours. But he teaches the boy in the family (who is incapable of anything because he's Asian, of course) to use some tools, and the boy gets a job as a result. Not a good job, but a job suitable for an Asian. What a hero Clint is for that, huh? You'd almost think those gooks were human. Almost.

Coming soon - "Georgia". That'll be entirely new. Because they made everything in it up.

LOL Gypsy. Is this at lasr a positive statement for one of my threads. That means we are getting somewhere.

Yes in this post it is about opening my mind, perhaps about changing our feelings of how we thought about in the past. When I was I child learning in gegraphy the whole world was a third in pink. The pink was a third of the world, and that was That was The British Empire. We were informed to be proud of that, and that we were the good guys. But we did destroy many ethnic groups, whether on purpose with violance, or whether simply to spraed disease such as the comon Flu. But I think the Spanish and Portuguese were much more destructive than the British were.

Yes! this is about what movies or books, or tv programmes which made you think, and change our opinion. Yes it is so easy to be brought up being educated to be patriatic of your country, and your country are the good guys. But sometimes you can reflect, and change your opinion.

What circumstances in any from the media has ever changed your opinion. For me I feel for people, and at the moment I feel very sorry for all these lost races, that no longer exist. The original inhabitants for example are no longer there in Jamaica and Trinidad for example, as they are all dead. Tha majority of the original races in America are now dead. And for the few that still exist, what have they been offered from the USA?


And when when you lok back those races that are now dead had much valued culture and knowledge to give. Not all of them died from violance apparently, many died from diseasees such as being in contact with us with the common flu for example, the difference was that they didn't have the defence of such viruses, and we did.

Unfortunately, I feel there is some truth in what you say. I remember communicating with some Asian in Britain. And they said you. As British invaded us. Now it is our turn to invade you , legally and without force. And yes it's happening. And it will happen not only in Britain, but throughout the world, including Russia. It has already happened in the USA without doubt.

Regarding : movies, which touched me

I remember when I was 9 years old I was really touched by the "Neverending Story" and I had a real crush on the Empress :) .

In general there were many movies which touched me in the last decades and I believe a person who is denying himself to be touched by a story simply lacks imagination.

Alas there is one movie, which was really disturbing me. It was "Saviour". Film critic Roger Ebert gave the film three and a half stars out of a possible four, stating that "Savior is a brutally honest war film that looks unblinkingly at how hate and prejudice can pose as patriotism." It is about an American mercenary escorting a Serbian woman and her newborn child (she got raped and subsequently casted out by her own family) to a United Nations safe zone during the Bosnian War.
The movie has strong images and excellent music and not too much action or bloodshed, but very very disturbing moments.


Regarding : The "extinction" of the "Whites"

Are you aware that the Western Civilization is the only global civilization which has suffered from a total collapse (the fall of the Roman Empire) and leaped back into pole position only 1000 years later ?

Please understand, the Roman Empire dominated all of the known world (known to the Romans) in its prime. It was tech leader, had the best infrastructure, the strongest army and was able to sustain millions of inhabitants including a capital which numbered 1 million people whom could only be fed by an excellent logistics and administration.

After the total collapse the Western world entered a Dark Age for centuries. The infrastructure crumpled. The tech got lost and Rome got burned down several times and shrank to a city of 20.000 people (5 % of its former inhabitants).

And then ... only 600 years after the Dark Age ended the Western Civilization started to dominate the entire globe ! It was the unchallenged tech leader, military power and commercial leader for 500 years ..

We should trust more into ourselves and rely on our ability to adjust and to rebound even after total collapse.
However there is one issue. If the Western Civilizations collapses again this time it will take the whole world into a Dark Age due to massive environmental desctruction and other ripples. Hence maybe the whole world would be better off if we manage the current geopolitcal changes in a very smooth way and as I trust that the Chinese and Indians are pretty smart people I don't see the end of the Western Civilization within the next several hundred years.

Savior is a 1998 war film starring Dennis Quaid, Stellan Skarsgård, Nastassja Kinski, and Nataša Ninković. It is about an American mercenary escorting a Serbian woman and her newborn child to a United Nations safe zone during the Bosnian War. It includes one terrifying sequence (a uniformed brute executes random Muslims by pounding them with an obscenely large wooden hammer), but apart from that it evokes little of the chaos and terror — the moral quicksand — of the Bosnian apocalypse.

Natasa is a really beautiful eye catching woman. I wonder if she is half russian?

For me many scenes were pretty terrifying. The old Bosnian woman in the village and the Serbian soldier who hacks her finger to get her marriage ring, the child on the brigde, the mistreatment of the pregnant women, the Muslim soldiers which take the entire Serbian village into the next forest... and yes the Croatian brute and his careful choice of the right hammer for each victim along with his obvious pleasure were certainly bone chilling ..

.. i don't think there are many movies which depict war in such drastic ugly but realistic pictures as this one. Not to mention the excellent movie theme made of folk songs and the cuts between serenity in the Bosnian mountains and then back to the horrors of the war.

For me this movie is also a movie about humanity. Humanity, which is lost by the most people in the movie who got totally brutalized and humanity, which is gradually regained by the main-actor, the mercenary, who also starts as a killer without emotions.

Actually, I can not say, that any movies have changed my opnion about anyning.

I like movie and the most important thing is that while watching them, something inside myself can be changed.

It can be the feeling of sorrows, of sympathy, pain, happiness.

I think, that make a soul (heart) develop.

It make us remember we are people, and not machines for earning money, for achieving just our own targets and satisfy amibitions, even if these targets and ambitions are not very connected with material world.

From this point of view I can recommend two very different, but very real movies:

1. Ostrov by Pavel Lungin (the Island). It is an outstanding russian film and not easy to watch, but it is worth watching.

2. Paris, I love you (Paris, Je t'aime).

Very light! Easy to watch!

It consists of different short stories,

These stories take place in Paris no matter with parisienes or tourists, but actualy this movies about ...Love (it is not so banal as it may sound) and people, not Paris.

I enjoy movies for what they are, namely art. They don't change my opinion and i don't derive moral from them.

The diving bell and the butterfly, copied below from Wikipedia is its short summary, is good, sad and real. It didn't change my point of views though ).

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is a translation of the French memoir Le scaphandre et le papillon by journalist Jean-Dominique Bauby. It describes what his life is like after suffering a massive stroke that left him with a condition called locked-in syndrome. It also details what his life was like before the stroke.
On December 8, 1995, Bauby, the editor-in-chief of Elle magazine, suffered a stroke and lapsed into a coma. He awoke 20 days later, mentally aware of his surroundings but physically paralyzed with the exception of some movement in his head and eyes (one of which had to be sewn up due to an irrigation problem). The entire book was written by Bauby blinking his left eyelid, which took ten months (four hours a day). A transcriber repeatedly recited a French language frequency-ordered alphabet (E, S, A, R, I, N, T, U, L, etc.), until Bauby blinked to choose the next letter. The book took about 200,000 blinks to write and an average word took approximately two minutes. The book also chronicles everyday events for a person with locked-in syndrome. These events include playing at the beach with his family, getting a bath, and meeting visitors.
The French edition of the book was published in March 1997. It received excellent reviews, sold 150,000 copies in the first week, and went on to become a number one bestseller across Europe. It was published in French on March 6th. Bauby died a few days later of pneumonia, on March 9th 1997.[1][2]

Spoken like true Pomm? I have often wondered what Pomme meant. Should the British be proud of this word, and what is it's meaning. I personally prefer the nicknaname Limey Due to the fact that British sailors discovered that when ordered to eat limes they avoideded diseases such as Scurvy etc. As they all ate limes the foriegners mocked the British. However when the British managed to explore the world without disease and malnutrition. the British had the last laugh.

And thankyou Clean32 I will make your recommended search and comment later.

Also I don't think I was thinking like a true Pomme, excited that we took one third of the world on glorious positive intententions.

My ref;ections were on this movie, where now there are many human races of people now extinct or almost, due to tha ctions of western Europeans. The Spanish appear to be the worst.

The film portrays his lavish life of luxury and womanizing before an illness struck him. Then there's a short struggle during which he tries to regain his humanity in a luxury private clinic being cared for by a bunch of attractive women. Death. The end.

Quite dramatic.

I thought it is a little deeper.
They don’t say it straight forward he is Elle magazine director, who had a heart attack, and he is paralyzed. He discovered himself in that condition in full amusement of what is actually going on. He didn’t remember he has a heart attack; he then went through discovering this, and dictated a book about what he feels and thinks.
I t is a story about someone who had a life and then been crashed into “life partly”. It is full of his thoughts. Def not agreed movie is about “being cared by bunch of attractive women”. ))
original title is "Le Scaphandre et le Papillion" – is the title of his book published, movie has been based on this book and has got a different name. I didn’t read a book.

No, it's not deeper.

The movie is very Hollywood-esque visually and otherwise. It's extremely sentimental and works because of the contrast I mentioned in my previous post. There are some more serious ideas but they get buried under glamorous superfluousness.

Thanks, I will give it a search.

One that I am watching at the moment, of which I discovered by chance on latest uploads of films is about a young girl based in England not loved by her parents, and chose to go to an orphanage. Lovely girl, that should have been loved by her parents, but didn't happen. That's what makes it so sad. Here's the link.

http://tvshack.net/movies/The_Unloved__2009_/

I would appreciate comments if you have watched this film. I find it unreal. of why you can't love your own child, no matter how your financial difficulties might be. In fact it would be your drive to improve yourself, to give your child something. But as you can see , not every parent is the same as you would assume. This could have been your own daughter. What would you have done., I personally would have been proud of having such a daughter, and would have wanted her to grow up for a good and happy future. In fact I do have such a daughter , now in her twenties.

I do not think that paralysed people look glamorous, sorry.
And no clinic, however good it is, can be viewed in that way too when you are dying.
But people always see different things, not arguing on that.

I'll have to admit that a lot of the films that are posted I haven't seen, and I'm not exactly a film buff. But I do have a few that resonated with me...

Russian Films:
-Летят Журавли
-9 Рота

Hollywood Films:
-Schindlers List
-Seabiscuit

I don't know if there is a place in this thread for books, but there is one that was moving to me far above any film that I've ever seen.

The Long Walk-Slavomir Rawicz

It's available in several languages. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Brokeback mountain

sorry for posting late. I never know how to see the latest replies to my posts.

I liked it mostly because I didn't realize the male relationship can be this deep, assuming the plot represents the real feeling.
I also like the west and lived there shortly, and this movie is anything but what you would expect to find in the rural areas. So they turned the west upside down. I believe it was banned in Utah as they normally do with controversial films that contradict Mormon believes.

Here is another one of the the same subject. In Australia. a true story set in the 1930s of Aboriginee half cast seen as white. and whould be eventually diluted in breed to be white. It is about a little girl being taken away from her mother. due to the fact that she was half cast, half white and half Aboriginee.. The child escaped and fooled the authorities travelling about 1000 miles through desert. An interesting film. The clue was the rabbit proof fence. And shows a very clever young girl, fooling the authority for her simple desire. To be with her Mother , and be left alone. Nothing complicated or wrong about that, is there? Or is there, when other idiots are involved to ruin such lives in the first place.

My point is of chnging our way of thinking. Thinking of people as they are. Without nationionism or political, or religous beliefs. But to think of things in reality and love. I am beginning to think that religion, politics, and nationalism is a form of wrongness, and has caused damage in the world with many deaths and much hurt. Hopefully we can change all of this. Religion continues to be a major problem in causing deathes and hurt, Yet it claims to be good, it shows to be evil. Either forcing people to believe, or giving death or hurt.

In all religions and nationalistic beliefs it has caused nothing but pain and pain to all in the past, and appears to continue up to the present.

My guess is that somewhere in the 21st century a nation wil want to be world conquerer. Perhaps not with weapons, perhaps another way. But it will happen, as it has in every other century. Perhaps it s the time for the Chinese this time? Or even the Indians, and I mean the real indians from India.

I would say, that (from the point of view of history), there always will be two parts into which the world will be devided.

This two part should compete with each other in order to make the world go round, make societies be developing all the time.

It is for a world balance!

Just think about Rome which was destroyed because of it's domination.

From the point of view of finance and production, China has a real opportunity to become a leader and this part of the world will impact much the world in future.

The only thing is that China will not be able to do it a lone (they need partners).

As for big population, I do not think, there is a big threat (you meant, wars?).

Penetration of chinese people to Russia can be and is (next to borders), but is a reality.

I do believe at least, that Russia will learn the mistakes of the west (too much tolerance) and will not let the situtaion with immigrance lead to the situation like in France, in Germany, in Italy.

I do remember 4 years, ago how my company wanted to penetrate into China market.

There are so many customers there (income are growing as well), so for any company there are more then huge opportunities indeed.

The same with India (they are on the first place now in the business strategy of many companies, btw)

But on other hand, nobody in other markets wants China to penetrate into local markets, so they will play games, negotiate, build brriers and so on.

The problem is that China becomes more and more financial monster, which invest money into other markets.

It is good, because, it develops economy of other countries.

It is bad, due to other countries can be very dependent upon China very soon.

the only thing that can calm is that in the world there is a real globalization, so dependence on each other increasing dramatically.

What is it about your Britishness that gives you concerns about the Chinese - I share your passport but not your concerns - ? Why don't you trust 'them', given that the Chinese represent a multi digit percentage of the worlds population surely they can't all be untrustworthy, or do you think they have a personal axe to grind with you? Given that a fairly commonly spoken view on this forum is that the greatest threat to humanity is religious fundamentalism, can you not see some advantages of an officially Godless state becoming more influential? Have you ever watched the last emperor, a message that I took from it was that the revolution was very internalized, the Chinese were, and from my experience of a fairly regular gig in China, remain very focussed on sorting out China, there expansion into Africa and South America seems very much to do with securing food and raw materials, their actions to a pitifully small extent, but none the less a more successful level than the european colonial powers ever achieved, do seem to be redistributing wealth - the strength of Chinese investment equally has a lot to do with them having amassed so much of the Yankee dollar, that as good global citizens they need to support the ailing capital markets.

Well apart from my Britishnness, of which will always stick with me , as I can't help it , as I am Britsh in the old fashioned way.

Back to films that move us. I watched training your dragon, very watchable on tvshack, and let us assume it is a family film for young children to watch also.

It was a nice film I thought, and of course dramatic. But be warned, as my nearly four year old burst out in tears half way through the film when he thought the young Black good dragon was killed and dead. He was in hysterics, and very upset for quite some time. I had to fast forward it, and like all films , everything was ok. And in the end the nice black dragon was going to be ok.

Good film and worth watching. Yes your little ones will watch and respond in different ways to this film, but will they get so upset as mine did? Perhaps my kid is just that extra sensitive. But without doubt it is a dramatic film for the family.

Okay,

the movies that made me think aren't probably that sophisticated, but there's an interesting idea that all of them share.

I'm speaking about "Fight Club","Dark Knight" and "Peaceful Warrior". In all three of them, there's a strong motive of not being able to control the real life, and thus trying to flee it.

In "Fight Club", the protagonist Jack lives a dull, boring life without strong feelings and commitments, until he meets his alter ego Tyler who shows him life is more than bying things in IKEA.

In "Dark Knight", there's that famous monologue of Joker that goes "You know, I just... do things. The mob has plans, the cops have plans, Gordon's got plans. You know, they're schemers. Schemers trying to control their little worlds. I'm not a schemer. I try to show the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are."

And in "Peaceful Warrior", Daniel the gymnast meets a mysterious figure he calls Socrates, who shows him the way of Zen and surrendering to the world instead of fighting it.

Now to me, at least, those movies presented that eternal question - should we fight, or should we give up? Be a "schemer" - or just try "go with the flow"?

What do you think?:mooooh:

It only takes a few seconds to view a movie or tv show.on computer, and with no downloading. All you have to do is click and view.

Now Lola runs? I couldn't find it, so perhaps someone else can, Probably a film that wasn't in the English, and that would expalin all in my failure of searches. This is the nearest I could find. I don't know if it is any good as I haven't watched it yet. But funny enought, those you watch by chance happen to be at least watchable. but maybe not blockbusters. But even so entertaining.

Yep, it was called "Run Lola, Run!". By the way, I recalled another great movie with the actress who played main role here (Franka Potente) - "The Blueprint". Unfortunately, it's a very rare film, and I doubt it can be watched online.

Moritz Bleibtreu (great actor!), who starred in "Lola", appears in that movie called "Das Experiment", where a group of people is separated into "prisoners" and "wardens", and basically how it all gets out of control.

If you manage to find them somehow - they are well worth watching.

P.S. Oh, and check out "Splice" with Adrien Brody. :tv:

my friend recommended me several japanese movies, and they were best movies I've seen lately

I'll just mention one of them: The Twilight Samurai (2002)@@AMEPARAM@@http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMTgzMTA1OTA0OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMjA5MzcyMQ@@._V1._SX94_SY140_.jpg@@AMEPARAM@@BMTgzMTA1OTA0OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMjA5MzcyMQ@@@@AMEPARAM@@SX94@@AMEPARAM@@SY140

I didn't even know what to expect from this movie, probably some samurai sword fighting and things like that, but it turned out to be very sad and tragic movie... I'd recommend it to everyone, even if you're not interested in japanese culture, it will still be interesting

I love them all. Super heroes I love, because as a kid I collected the Marvell comics. Superman, metal men, Spiderman, Batman infact all of them. I like Wolfman for the moment. But there are many more/


Die hard 4.0
The inception
The dark island
Batman begins
Batman the dark night

I haven't found The Inception, but I have found Inception, and here it is.. A 2010 movie, therefore I assume the quality is not good, at the moment, untill they make a decent DVD for the downloders, Hence that is why I gor DVDs or movies that are a few years old.

Again Dark island is a 2010 movie, and again might show on poor quality on internet

Here it is to watch now without downloading: http://tvshack.cc/movies/Dark_Island__2010_/

I prefer watching older movies or even better telivision programme movies such as from BBC or HBO. Then you might find quality viewing. Otherwise for latest movies go to the cinema. But the trouble is for expats is that they don't want to see the such movies translated, and they want to see see it in the original language, such as English. And also Russians know full well that the original is mis much better, if they have a reasonable knowledge of English.

The title is American History X shot in my neighborhood, Venice, California. It show Venice as a neighborhood with under working cl**** and not like the world mecca for crazy, artistic and "beautiful people".

Powerful performance by Ed Norton, likely his best.

Haven;t seen it yet, however it looks good. Appears a bit pro politically correct though, same as all British and American films. Here is the full film
to watch now: http://tvshack.cc/movies/American_History_X__1998_/

THe film was made in 1998, and yes it was the politicaly correct at that time.

Bels, there is nothing politically correct about neo-nazism or skinheads...

I really like 7 Pounds with Will Smith. I watched it with 3 girls and all of them were crying at the end of the movie. Can not tell the story. You just need to watch it. And yes, I also cried. Even the 3th time... what a movie it is...

True, depending on which country you are in. But in fact skinheads in the 70s was simply a fashion. close cropped hair , levis, special red mountain boots called Doctor Martins, and a branded named shirt called for example Bensherman. It was fashion, and from then on it was used something else, such as political excuses. As we can see, British and German fascists joined together, and this fascist method has even reached Russia now. But by no I feel it is now outdated, and the Brits and Germans have moved on. But the Russian skinheads have just caught on. Sorry, but they are now out of date. Too late! LOL!

Solayaris in terms of forgiveness and Ostrov in terms of spirituality, and Admiral in terms of reality.

Bille August's Pelle the Conqueror...(Denmark, 1987)...the ultimate tear jerker. Every woman I've seen it with is on the floor in tears by the ending...

Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears


Very interesting movie ! All characters are seen in today's society, although body shapes have changed since then !

And I recognized all of my furniture.

Ordinary People is my favourite film and it's following me through my life, I'll always like it. The book is also great. The film itself is magical, its reality of ideas and authentic emotions of its characters, I can so well relate to this film and I've watched it about 50 to 100 times already.

This was the first R-rated film I saw in a cinema and remains one of my favorites too. The acting is immense and I imagine in the town that I grew up in there were many 'Ordinary People' like them, sadly.

On a side note, many years later I was in a bar on Newbury St in Boston and saw an attractive woman standing nearby, who I thought I knew from some place. When I looked at her again I saw Timothy Hutton was with her and the woman in question was Elizabeth McGovern. Oops.
