Gruschenka did improv before she was a showgirl in Reno Nevada (the pinhed must be making this up -- NOT).

The improv movie seemed very real.

Reality is what escapism escapes from; this movie was not escapist, it was like reality.

The term "escapist" is not used favorably, generally. Those who defend works described as escapist from the charge either assert that they are not escapist—such as, a science fiction novel's satirical or hypothetical aspects can address real life ... ... or defend the notion of "escape" as such, not "escapism"—as in J. R. R. Tolkien's "On Gay Fairy-Stories" and C. S. Lewis's quotation, in his "On Science fiction" of Tolkien's question of who would be most hostile to the idea of escape: jailers.

The pinhedz use of the term "escapist" was not derogatory, although his reference to "reality" might have been somewhat derogatory.

Yakima might watch a full-length opera in Russian. Shocked

The people call the sun "Yarilo," which means "The Bright One" in pre-Christian Russko-talk, and they rejoiceth that The Bright One cometh.

Been there--saw that.

I was entertained (but I don't think it was actually realistic Suspect ).

The film opens in New Orleans, where John Triton is "The Mental Wizard", a nightclub fortune teller. During a show one evening, Triton suddenly urges an audience member to rush home, cautioning that her son is in danger. As the story unfolds, Triton struggles with his new-found psychic ability, as all of his relentlessly bleak predictions prove accurate.

Here’s what we know so far about Transformers: The Very Last Knight. It has King Arthur, Nazis, and Stonehenge. (plus large transforming alien robots)

I'll have to wait for the critics reviews of "Resident Evil."

If the right ones hate it enough, I'll probably see it.

Of course, Jonathan Greene is clearly based on Guillaume Le Vasseur de Beauplan (1595-1685), who was a frenchman that became an officer in the Polish army, and ended up mapping Ukraine and Transylvania and picking up a lot of ghost stories in the process.

1967:




2014:



Watch out--"Viy Part II" is coming,  affraid and it has Jackie Chan in it. What a Face



These are but 11 of the 21 locations. Shocked



Masha says that Nikolai Gogol is back, and this is the coolest moving picture ever. Very Happy

Misha says that the jackie Chan team and the Viktor Solovyev team both did a great job:

There's a movie coming out starring ScarJo that is called 攻殻機動隊 . Some people on Youtube like the trailer, some do not.

Of those who clicked thumbs after watching the 攻殻機動隊 trailer, 9.5% gave it thumbs down.

Of those who clicked thumbs after watching the "Ghost in the Shell" trailer, 11% gave it thumbs down.

Conclusion--English speakers are sensitized about white washing--Japanese, not so much.

henc going to the prob of so few actresses who can open a big tent-pole picture, it's basically ScarJo, J-Law, and maybe Kitty La Fontaine and that's it.  and of course Z-Sal if you need a supporting colour.
