Schindler's List...

Recommended Posts

Okay, I accident brought this online, I clicked the wrong thumbnail!! :crazy: remember folks, always check your orders...Anyway, I was wondering, is it a good film or not? Should I be bothered to sit down and watch it? What's it like?

Any comments on it? or ratings as a film?

It's the most powerful movie I've ever seen. It's about the Holocaust, so it's disturbing, heart-wrenching, dark and depressing. It's also in black and white. If you get through it do not skip the end credits. 200/10.

Be prepared to cry. I don't like to cry in public, but this movie made me sob like a baby. It is powerful and intense. I have not watched it again since the first time I saw it in the theater, but once my child is old enough, I'm going to make her sit and watch it with me.

wow, Edna, you're cheap. :grin:

I saw it years and years ago, and thought it was superbly done and acted. Hard story, though. Very tough. But part of history, unless you subscribe to Mel Gibson's dad's ideas.

Amazing Movie, 100/10!

This is also one of those Unique movies that no other movie could ever possibly try to live up to. Its seriously that damn good!

Yes i Cried. But i also cried at Fox and the Hound.

Does that make me a crybaby, or just in touch with my feminine side.

I'm only anxious becoause other wise i'd have wasted my money that could e spent on other things... :crazy:

You have to see that movie because you know very little or nothing at all about WWII and all what happened in Germany and Europe since 1939 till 1945. I guess nobody talked to you about it so it´s a necessary class of History for you.

Oddly now , mention of that movie more easily brings up rememberances of that episode of "Seinfeld " where Jerry caught hell from his parents for making out with his girlfriend while it was playing .... " Newman ! ( :beady: ) "

I lived in three different countries and we always had the right to learn History (though it´s true that sometimes it would have some make-up on it...) Besides, that chapter is widely known. I think it´s rather parent´s fault when it comes to ignore such basic points.

We can learn dry history, but not about the culture, life, meaning, impact or anything like that. We can learn dates, names of dead kings and names of wars but not much else about them. Thats what happens in most of our history lessons...

This will definitely put a human face on history for you, Blue Fish. It's not a movie for everyone, or one to watch casually. You need to have the time and the mood.

"Schindler's List" and "Saving Private Ryan" actually made me sick to my stomach, but everyone needs that once in a while. If we didn't get disgusted by man's inhumanity to man, we would become like Pol Pot, Hitler or Saddam....
