Repsej: Nope, I won't watch it. I get what happened. I can't watch it. I have read enough about it that I will do anything in my power to make sure it doesn't happen again...and then it does in some far flung part of the world. Every good life snuffed out by assholes makes me sad, heart sick and angry. the worst part is that there are excuses made for countries the USA is friends with. Seperate the religion from the person and think of innocent little kids being killed...does it matter what their parents believe? Does it really? Every innocent life lost is a major crime against humanity. You can throw out a big number to link a particular death with a belief, but it doesn't change the fact that each person is one person who died, who never should have.
BizarreMan: One of the stops that week was the Holocaust Museum. A mind numbing place that was important to go, but we'll never do it again.
Delawheredad: <a target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="karmaceutical You can't be serious! While Schindler's list is a historically flawed film the events it portrays really happened.Life Is Beautiful is fiction through and through and can't compare to real events.
saturn badger: [www.uncp.edu image 600x492]Judgement at Nerumberg. My parents took us to see it at 11. Not sure what they were thinking.
Tyrone Slothrop: She thought that her role was dumbing down the movie by making the horrors of the Holocaust even more blatant?
contrapunctus: Fano:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irena_Sendler another great heroThanks for the link. Amazing story. I've read a bit about the Polish Resistance in the past (the Warsaw uprising stuff is mindblowing). Somehow, I hadn't read about Sendler yet.
Delawheredad: Schindler, was as much an opportunist as a hero. He was not a nice guy according to just about everyone who met him or knew him. He was playing both ends off of each other, He also had the foresight to realize that Germany was going to lose the war so he positioned himself for the best possible outcome for himself. In other words he was a gifted politician, no more. Yes his actions in saving those he did were heroic but Schindler himself was mostly a scumbag. Even a criminal can save a drowning child. His act is heroic it does not alter the fact that he is a criminal.
karmaceutical: Schindler's List is some fairly high grade schmaltz. Spielberg likes to direct as though the audience is unable to come to their own emotional conclusions. Or, maybe more to the point, the film is both visually and emotionally monotone.Compare and contrast with:[upload.wikimedia.org image 220x329]
Marisyana: meat0918: I've seen it. I will never watch it again.I only have two movies on my "Great Movies I Can Never Watch Again"--Schindler's List and Dear Zachary--but the latter packs much more punch because it's a documentary and was being filmed at the time everything was happening. I don't even have kids and it was like being punched in the stomach repeatedly.
Rwa2play: germ78: T.rex: never saw it... nor have i ever seen Bachelor Party, Blues Brothers, or Jerry McGuire.DonaldSutherlandPointingInvasionOfBodySnatchers.jpgIt's required viewing if you ever visit Chicago. I've probably seen it enough times to cover everybody in this thread. Classic musical-comedy movie too.If you've never seen "Blues Brothers" or "Animal House"...you're not a human being in my book.

Revenge of the Nerds was the film of my generation, to depict partying in college.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Rwa2play: Just had to read the synopsis of it and say "Yeah, won't watch this, ever." Not because it stinks....but because how heartbreaking it must seem to be.Pretty much.I mean... I wouldn't stop anyone from watching it, but I feel that fair warnings are due: it will totally and thoroughly crush your soul.
