There are no words, except to say that is effing hi-larious!


I know everyone has already discussed this film extensively. I mean, it was required watching in my school district, but I didn't go to public school until junior year. But since I think I am the last person to see it, I just have to talk about a few things.

So I watched it last night. I actually didn't cry until the very end; when Ben Kingsley walked Itzhak Stern's widow to Schindler's grave. Another scene that really affected me was towards the beginning, when that little girl is shouting "Goodbye Jews". I mean, it's one thing when you see adults support such atrocities, they could categorically be called evil. But seeing how children were raised like that...It's not like I didn't know that went on. But it's one of those things were it doesn't really make you almost physically react until you see it.

I also feel the need to rant a bit in here, as opposed to the IMDb boards. One, Speilberg did not accept payment for the film, so how dare you say he was a profiteer in it for blood money! Do a little fucking research before you spout your mouth off. Another person was disgusted by the filmmaker's ploy to get us more invested by trying to manipulate us with not knowing whether the women would be gassed or showered. Hello! That wasn't some cheap ploy, that actually happened! People were faced with that gut-wrenching worry when they went in there.

The IMDb board has some gems of ignorance in there. I am still surprised at the awful things I find on the internet. I think it's good though that it shocks me. Hate and ignorance should never just be accepted with an "eh" and *shrug*.

Some other comments that bugged me were how Schindler was portrayed. Okay, yes. In real life he was a womanizing, profiteering scroundel, but to say that this film takes away from other people who somehow worked in Nazi resistance...So maybe Schindler wasn't the best man, he might not have even been a good man. That does not diminish that he saved lives. I'm sure the 1100 people he saved were grateful, regardless of motive. And I don't think Speilberg was trying to make him the #1 hero of the Holocaust. This is simply one story out of the multitude. It's not like every film about World War II is dedicated to Oskar Schindler. Also, he has been criticized to not standing up to Amon Geoth and TPTB face to face, and called a coward. Excuse me. But if he were to have done that, he probably would have been shot in the face or worse. You're no good to anyone if you're dead. That must have been a very fine line to walk. And the fact that he was able to hang on to that precarious position until the very end...

ANYWAY...I thought it was a great, important film. Everyone acted brilliantly. I also find it...odd I guess would be the best way to put it, that Mel Gibson might have played Schindler. And the way that almost half of it was shot with a handheld camera really helped to imagine what it would been like existing in that chaotic time.

Oh, and to all the asshats who say the Holocaust never happened...what the fuck is your problem?!?!?!


So Elisa's engagement party was yesterday. The first hour...I did not ANYONE! Elisa was nice and talked to me a lot, but of course she had to mingle, seeing as she's the bride. But then John showed up! Yay! The Will to my Grace! Well, I'm more like Karen...but they're still friends! But we are totally gonna be an old "couple" in the nursing home together. We were walking around the food and he kept urging me to eat, and I was just fighting back at him. And Elisa's maid of honor is so cool. I want to be friends with her. :P

Holy crap, I looked so hot yesterday. I wore that brown dress I bought from eBay MONTHS ago. It was a little trampy in the chestal region, but whatev. XP I even broke my promise to myself to not call Amanda. I wanted to see if she wanted to go out to dinner or coffee, such hotness couldn't be wasted. But of course she didn't answer, and I changed into PJs and ordered pizza.

Quote of the week:
John (quoting me actually, just funnier when he says it): "No! Don't punch me in my vajayjay!"

It is not easy to squick me out. My hardcore rating is 8 after all. :P But H/Hr...*sings* wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, WROOOONG!
Allee: russialady_lyca on June 25th, 2007 09:51 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I knew it wasn't a movie to just put in and watch. But I knew I needed to see it. I don't know why I didn't cry more. I usually cry too much. Maybe because (as a lot of things do) it reminded me of Seinfeld ("You were making out during Schindler's List?!!?!")

And I totally hear ya on the Ralph Fiennes thing. Speilberg picked him for his evil sexuality. Evil yes, sexy...lord help me yes.

I really want to read the book. I've always been interested in the Holocaust. Well, I like basically just like history. But I remember trekking up the hill, in the snow, to campus for an 8 a.m. class that was called, "The Diplomatic History of Europe: 1914 to Present", because I enjoyed it so much. If you knew what a chronic ditcher I was, this would sound impressive. :P

I like long comments! :D

I cry at the "wrong" things. That's the problem. XP

I'm sure my mom worries about me and my craziness. She just doesn't ask because the longer my parents don't know, the longer they go without sleeping in shifts, LOL!

Oh, I cried during Titanic too. Mainly at the part when the old couple are lying in bed together and are clinging to each other. And when the dad is putting his wife and daughters on the lifeboat. They're bawling and he keeps assuring them that there's a boat for the daddies on the other side. :(

I'm glad the engagement part went well! Having a good time + looking hot = winning combo. ;)

Aw, somebody already picked HP! *tear* I say Heroes! And I will totally have to do this meme, too! :P

"02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now

I feel so, too! XD

"06. The character I would shag anytime
-Ummm...Jimbo, LOL!"

That would be dirty, uncomplicated teenage sex, I'm sure. XD
Allee: cliffordnotnormallady_lyca on June 26th, 2007 08:03 pm (UTC)
I'd change my answer to Troy McClure, so it would all be legal...but I don't think he'd be a good lover. Too selfish. Dear god, I am analyzing the sexual prowess of Simpsons characters. I think I need help. XD
polaris_86: gilmore girlspolaris_86 on June 27th, 2007 03:18 pm (UTC)
Oh, Troy McClure! XD I doubt that he would like to have sex with you. He seems to like fishes much more... XD
