Tyrone Slothrop: She thought that her role was dumbing down the movie by making the horrors of the Holocaust even more blatant?
wildcardjack: I made a platonic friend watch Schindlers List one night.
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.
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.
mrlewish: Why are some of you so traumatized? You do know crap like that still happens in one form or another.
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]
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: The thing about the Academy Awards that year was how all four of the better Supporting Actor nominees lost to the least of the nominees.You had...-Ralph Fiennes for Schindler's List-Pete Postlethwaite for In the Name of the Father-John Malkovich for In the Line of the Fire-Leonardo DiCaprio for What's Eating Gilbert Grape... all losing to Tommy Lee Jones for The Fugitive.Huh?I mean, I love TLJ's work and thought he was good in The Fugitive, but I didn't think he was THAT good, and definitely not better than the other four nominees.
T.rex: I don't want to hear about historical inaccuracies, and soforth... The point of the movie is not to tell us about Schindler's life...
WippitGuud: If you want something less anime, The Road is something to watch. Christ that movie just knocked you down and kept kicking and kicking...
AdolfOliverPanties: gameshowhost: Schindler's List was too long./no, not the film//*runs*Damn you. I laughed at that.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: RexTalionis: I saw that movie on NBC when it was broadcasted uninterrupted in 1997. I liked it. I thought it was a great movie.I think that's how I first saw it, and I was in high school at the time.I remember being utterly gutpunched by the film.Jaws is my favorite Spielberg film, but I think Schindler's List is his best work. John Williams' score, in particular, is especially effective and haunting here.
Eirik: I'm hearing good things about this "Grave of the Fireflies". I'll have to rent it for them this weekend.
meat0918: I'll never watch "Grave of the Fireflies". I don't care how good people say it is.
Eirik: I watched it in college with a couple friends We sat, unable to move, until the credits were over and the house lights came back on. We were far from the only ones that did that (it was in the 1000 seat Fremont theater in San Luis Obispo. It wasn't full, but many people seems stuck in their seats.)When we walked out onto the street, my friend said, "That was the greatest movie I'll never watch again." I kind of agreed with him,/Won't let my kids see it until at least high school.//Classic animated fare for the time being.///I'm hearing good things about this "Grave of the Fireflies". I'll have to rent it for them this weekend.
