Schindler's List (1993)

There's something to help you remember why you were given a heart. To pump blood surely. Aside from that Schindler's List is a touching film. I mean I thought I was strong willed, I was watching  babies getting sliced everyday before breakfast and was ok with that, but this... It just hit some codes in my operating block and something like emotion broke through . But enough about me, lets talk about my opinion.
 It is soooo long. And maybe that is what made emotions possible, because when given more time, the director can make you fond of "good guys" and easily toy with the viewer like some twisted puppet master, making everyone dance to his little flute. That.... And music with everyones favorite true story card. It's like they think that if you do not write "true story" on every war movie, nobody will ever watch it. Or maybe it is me who cares about that and brings it up all the time, but still, I get it , war really happened , I believe you. And in the end it is not why I watch films about World War Two. It's because of the Nazis.
 Yup, you can't have WW2 without Nazis. I remember the good old times (that never happened) when Nazis were neither good nor bad. They were part of the war. I love that movie (witch was never made) about , how having to kill Jews is not the best part time job to be found. Sure, Jews really got it much worse, but not all Nazis were this bad, because all I see from every movie, is that Nazis ware all horrible blood thirsty sadists who love to kill the weak. Hm... Ok , so partially that is true, but my point is stereotypes suck goat balls.
Now , back to the List. There is one thing that I could name as sort of wrong. The color play, the red dress girl (picture above). I'm not saying that this was a bad idea, what I'm saying is there should have been a bit more of it. Maybe some other important details could have been colored , like the ring in the end , or somebodies blood or something. Would give it more sense . But that is just what I think. And nobody cares what I think anyway so.....  Best part is when the movie ends and titles go on road made of grave stones, that is probably the best way to show titles I have ever seen.

  2. I love long movies, you really get a feel for the characters and can really get into their life!
    From what I gather from your post the movie has non black and white idems in it? That's kinda weird, the only time I ever saw that is in the movie Raging Bull!

  3. Obviously a great movie...but I remember seeing it when I was around 5. My cousins caught it on TV, didn't know what it was, but were like "OMG BOOBS". Years later we laugh at how terrible that situation is.

  5. I really liked it, it's true that's a tad long but it was still great. It's hard to share some of your views, but i might be biased coming off a half jew family.
    I would still recommend it.

    Also on an unrelated note, i really laughed when i saw your name for the first time because i thought it said Jizz Bazooka, which i found hilarious hahaha

  6. One of the best movies I had ever seen. Pretty practical where a selfish businessman who tries to make money with sorry state of jews ends up saving more jews he could have ever imagined.

    cant imagine how the same mankind can be cruel to one another.
    I studied in a catholic school, they play how jesus was tortured by one king again and again anf again but not a single line about holocaust and jews. Hypocrites!

  8. Hm, I haven't seen, nor heard of this before, I'll definetly look into it, and yes, stereotypes are horrible and most of the time inaccurate, many people were forced to join the army, whether they wanted or not.
