We have a very funny translation for the movie "Star Wars I", but only those who know Russian and watched famous Soviet movies (especially the movie Kin-dza-dza! 1986) will be able to evaluate it.

It is called Storm in the glass / Буря в стакане (2004).

Ain't the "Grand Prix D'Eurovision De La Chanson" broadcast in Russia ?


( rethorical question , I admit ) . . .

Above one of the most famous "Grand Prix" songs . . .

So , how is Star Wars as such received in Russia?

Oh , and as a musical "candy" for you , what do you think about this Star Wars related song ?

Concerning this thread in general . .

Once again , how I view Star Wars as such . .

I do not know if there is something to the rumours that George Lucas' dad was a member of the KKK . .

Concerning George himself . .

I do not think he studied anthropology for nothing . .


He probably is deeply interested in . . ahemm . . 'human differences' . .

Also , he has that kind of stare in his eyes which is typical for groid-haters if you ask me . . .


( do not be fooled by him later supposedly giving groids a place in his life or in Star Wars , he has to keep it with the Hollywood kikes or his movies won't be published . . .)

Like I said , Star Wars is all about 'light' vs. 'dark'.

On all levels.

I don't think one could ever paint the bad guys darker and the good guys lighter tbh , even to the point of skin . . .

In fact it is light < - - - > dark thinking uplifted to a theological level.

The Jedi Knights are the guardians of the republic . . Inside the USA the KKK also takes the stand to be there to protect the Anglo-Saxon republic and it rejects darkies . . .

Also , look at the history of the Sith order . . .

A few betraying Jedi turned to 'the dark side' , came into contact with an ape-like humanoid species . . .


. . called 'the Sith' , in time even miscegenated with each other , giving the whole phenomenon the name 'Sith' . . .

Also , the bad guys are often portrayed as 'primitive savages' , swarthy and even with body paint . .

In my opinion this photo contains serenity. And serenity is a sign of balance between opposing forces



Quote:

Toto Cutugno- Insieme

( rethorical question , I admit ) . . .

Above one of the most famous "Grand Prix" songs . . .
I do not know. I haven't watched TV for a long time.

Toto Cutugno was well known in Russia in the 1980s. Eurovision contest is also well known in Russia.



Quote:
. . . the impression
Of course, these impressions ranged from "an unforgettable impression" to "this was the first movie during which I fell asleep."

This movie is addressed to young people. And young people get a stronger impression of it than adults people. You should also understand that Soviet youth watched this movie about 10 years after its creation. And their impression could not be as strong as in the United States during its creation.

For the first time, Soviet young people saw the movie in the youth program, which showed fragments of the movie for three minutes in 1989. The first official release of the movie on the screens of Soviet cinemas occurred in 1990.

These are Soviet posters for this movie
















Shortly thereafter, video salons were opened by private entrepreneurs. And we just washed away with a wave of American movies. And against the background of this glut of movies for us, Star Wars were not something special, at least for me.



Quote:

Dschinghis Khan - Dschinghis Khan
I have heard this song many times
Only then I did not know it name and the name of the musical band.

So , how is Star Wars as such received in Russia?
I have already answered this question above.
I can add that I watched a lot of American movies for the first time in a video salon:

Back to the Future, The Thing, Lethal Weapon, Rocky, Mad Max, Indiana Jones, Tango & Cash, The Terminator, RoboCop, Rambo, Ghostbusters, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Overboard, Commando, The Running Man, Over The Top, Predator, Conan the Barbarian, Red Heat, Alien, Dune, Escape from New York, Red Sonja, Dead Heat, A Fish Called Wanda, License to Drive, Twins, Brewster's Millions, Think Big, Ruthless People.

This is certainly not a complete list. And I received this injection consisting of movies not gradually over many years, but over a rather limited amount of time. Against this backdrop, Star Wars is just one of the good movies.

Pretty Fly For A Jedi - Music Video
Of course I heard the original of this song.

I do not understand the sounds of English words well. Therefore, I can not perceive the whole meaning of the video.

The pictures are interesting . . Yet , TBH , I do not really get a clue out of them ( apart from the fact of me being next to illiterate in cyrillic . . lol . . Gotta admit )

. . not surprising . .

It was a smash hit back then . .

Even though it deals with one the most cruel men in history . .


Genghis Khan . .

On this occasion I would like to make you a witness of me thanking our Russian brothers and sisters for fighting the Mongols for eons . .

Be sure to check out more of their stuff . . .

Question for Alex Him: Have you ever seen Solaris and the 1964 Czechoslovak film Ikaria XB-1, known in the US as Voyage to the End of the Universe? Both very good, but I never read Stanislaw Lem's original novels both films were based on.

The Empire = evil nazis. And The Republic = allies. The entire narrative is just a semitic "feel good" story, that used actual historical fiction as a basis for the Science Fiction story. That's why I hate Star Wars. And that's why we should attack Star Wars.

It informs about the same things as on other posters:
a name of the movie,
a country that made the movie,
a genre of the movie,
names of the director and actors.

The genre is defined here as a galactic western.

Thank you.
But this is not our achievement; this is our destiny.

Of course, I know the name of Stanisław Lem. But I did not read his books and did not watch these movies.

Have you read "Plutonia" by Vladimir Obruchev?
