In the above movie, the school children did not even realize that the Tartars (Manchus) were oppressing them. One kid asks his teacher if he had been to the hanging, as if it were a fun event. The teacher replies saying that it would be a lot funner if it were the Tartars (Manchus) they were hanging.

The 5 Deadly Venoms

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_l3EcDB4sq04/SpVIgEUazvI/AAAAAAAAAtY/P9nNS3XzOn4/s400/5-Venoms.png

This is another classic kung-fu movie. It kept me guessing to the very end.

This was only 40 years ago and 30 years for the assassination. How much can someone or something learn from his/her/it's mistakes? Did government find better more efficient ways to control?

How far from third world savagery are we really? Imagine when the empire falls, how crazy that will be. America.

ridiculuos - this guy was an incompetent junker as you need one

- he started to change his mind after he was seriously wounded and the war went sour
- all those 'democratic' officers were anything but democratic, they wanted to reinstitude prussian three-class franchise which in fact kept ordinary people from having any say
- as hitler was heavily guarded the only way to get him was doing it the hashshashin-way - as an american you may heard of the reuse of that concept, it's even where the word assassin is derived from
- if he would have been serious he stood besides adolf and detonated that bomb, but there was a job in the propossed new goverbment waiting for him - oops
- the task to take out goebbels was not given to someone who knew about the plan but maj. otto ernst remer - as the german system of command encourages to ask question or at least allows own thoughts goebbels managed to put him through to adolf on the phone. this was the very moment when that poorly planned putch collapsed as remer took his men and started a hunt for the would-be putchists - if someone simply shot goebbels they would have succeeded

we may be very good in breeding military personnel, but we never made good assassins - remember what lenin said: if german revoluntionaries want to seize a railway station they queue up and buy platform tickets first - i'm afraid mr. ulyanow is right

stauffenberg's fame comes from the fact that at least somebody tried to do something and from the military's desire to witewash themselves after the war HAD ENDED. in the last year of the war you hardly found someone in the military not to see these guys as traitors who got what they deserved (they had broken a personnel oath to the f

Yes, gem will never get france, cause she is gem eternal enemy, and uk alway playing power broker among eu.

- that is why gem is always about, not good or bad but just what your history are, same for china.
- only history has if. but yeah, next time best do that first.
- that gem is.
- King is for the winner. Traitor is for the Loser.
- some say the gem version is better, only in gem language though. but hollywood version is more entertaining.

THE RETURN OF THE 5 DEADLY VENOMS
AKA CRIPPLED AVENGERS
http://cdn3b.dvdempire.org/products/91/1542191h.jpg

It is not the sequel to 5 Deadly Venoms, but the cast are the "Venom Mob". A group of actors from The 5 Deadly Venoms.
It is a very nice story from start to finish. A lot of themes and very good acting. It just amazes me how much detail are in all of these old Shaw Brothers' films that I have been posting in this thread.

1. good or evil - no shade of grey disturbing anyone

Then you gonna love this:
http://www.bluerayonsale.com/images/2650_front.jpg
"Elite squad" aka "Tropa de elite"(BR).
A sequel was in theatres/theaters last year I think (so I'm hopeful it arrives here too!).

Also, for the "political" buffs:
Z! (No, not the ant!)
A greek/spanish '69 movie about/inspired by the assassination of Grigoris Lambrakis (a left-wing greek politician).

If you are not disgusted by B/W movies:
La battaglia di Algeri
(By an italian director! Yes, there was a time when we did good movies...)

I forgot to comment on Inglorious Basterds'video posted by Tao (YES! I feel entitled to!).
It may be irrelevant, but is evident that (unlike A LOT of movies that involves italians), it evidently had a screenwriter that wrote the dialogue in real italian language. Too bad they didn't bring in a coach for the actors. While Landa seems to speak correct words in correct order (miracle!), the way he manages to f***-up all the accents makes the dialogue barely intelligible. He still deserved the statuette, tho. Even if the rest of the movie is, to me, (almost) total crap.
Sorry, I felt I had to point it out...

I think it was all intentional. It is basically a spoof on the Italian World War II genre of films.

The "Italian WWII genre" doesn't actually exists (just some B-movies set during WWII, that's it).
Since even those movies are unknown, there isn't that much to "spoof", beside the "pulp" feel of B-series productions (of which uncle Q is found of). So the "intentional" part could be applied to the over-the-top/campy style, but the issue with the italian dialogue I mentioned is a typical hollywood oversight (at least this time they tried before failing).

Let me add this movie:
9 rota
Russian movie about their war in Afghanistan.
Too much HW for my tastes, but overall is a good flick.

Everyone in Rio knows. Things are even more complicated than shown in the movie.

I know. It's the effort in speaking another language that is missing (also apply to all EN language movies featuring Giancarlo Giannini, so... Sad ).

Just note that in the wikipedia page there isn't a translation in italian (that should mean something). While you're technically correct, it's still a label applied by someone else.

just some B-movies set during WWII

I still think that's more fitting.

For a second I thought "Hey! I heard that movie title!".
Turns out, it's the good'ol UC. Yeah, I played the non 1.13 version some year ago. Can't remember nothing besides a city map (the one with the bank, IIRC).

Well, of course normally I am more interested when he deals with things such as the Triad, professional killers and hard-as-nails cops.
Since I already heard good things about "period pieces" JW made before mid-80s I really hope to find this Red Cliff at the video store.
Taoteaching

anyone, besides me, spend 4 hours and 40 minutes of their life watching this?

Hopefully I will.
As a personal rule of thumb, movies that lasts less than 100 minutes are rarely worth watching, and when movies are cut down due to "time concerns" we lose movies that otherwise would be universally considered masterpieces like Once upon a time in America (luckily the 3-hours cut is available) and, arguably, Lynch's Dune (lost forever, dang it!).
