RE: Schindler's List
Conspiracy. An interesting, if rather chilling, watch. Just throwing it out here.

I've seen conspiracy once before, it was alright. Had a decent enough plot if I remember right.

RE: Schindler's List
Ah, the Wannsee Conference. A well done and yes, quite chilling dramatization.
The "solution" was agreed upon and carryout was confirmed at that meeting in 1942.

The Reichstag was controlled by the National Socialist Party in 1933 and establishment of "processing centers" began that same year. Extermination of "undesirables" was already ongoing in '38 - Gypsies, the retarded, and homeless were the first to go. This was confirmed by Hitler's signature on a "euthanasia decree". This was a forced eugenics program extending the existing laws enabling sterilisation for those deemed genetically or socially unfit. Under this new policy, doctors were allowed and in some cases required, to take the lives of those deemed unfit rather than just sterilize them, as had been the law before.

The dilemma of history is often the cursory memorization of date and location. Often the key to understanding what really went on is the history of history.

RE: Schindler's List
Between the years 1939 and 1945 the German government or Third Reich, brought about the displacement, internment, and systematic extermination of an estimated 11 million to 12 million people in the midst of a World War, roughly half of the dead were Jews. But of course, this is only a general view of the dead which were found in camp records. It is possible these estimates might actually be somewhat low since some records were destroyed.

In a previous listing of "undesirables", I neglected to mention religious dissidents such as Jehovah's Witnesses, Christadelphians, the Confessing Church and Freemasons. Be assured it was not an atheist slip of the mind. I recall years ago during some exhaustive research, seeing some weekly extermination lists in which nationality was in one column with body count in the next. I came to to one column which had Jehovah's Witness and in the next column was a 1. I hadn't see this before and had to look for a confirmation of the language. It was around this time that I began to see the greater scope of exactly what went on. I really don't know why that recollection sticks in my mind so distinctly.

RE: Schindler's List
OK, can anyone ban this fool? Yeah, this Nappa guy.

What you expected out of a movie is your problem, but to say that this jewel of cinematography is worth 0/10, this is just pure trolling and I would like you to go away, I do not like you, not one bit. I am not saying this because you want to see "more gassing", you disturbed fuck, but if you thought that this movie is a piece of shit, then you must be bat shit crazy, or trolling.

I say trolling. And i hate trolls. Except for the Troll Of Justice.

And you know what we do to trolls...

Give me a negative rep all you want filox, I'm not retracting my opinion that Schindler's List is one of the worst movies ever made. To call it a 'jewel of cinematography' is a gross over statement of it's value and worth.

If you like everything to do with the holocaust even if it's a giant turd that's your problem not mine.

It was so utterly boring that I couldn't even make it all the way through and had to skip to see if there was anything even remotely interesting after the first hour.

I give this movie a 0/10 don't watch it's crap. Not because it was in black and white (although color would have actually been better) but because IT'S BORING.

If you think the movie was boring, then you have no fucking tastes. And you can't rate a movie with 0 Laughat
Here we go with the "taste" shit again... Dodgy

The film was powerful, yes. The film was (to some) moving, yes. The film accurately depicted much of the horrors of the holocaust, yes. It also had many boring parts. Being bored by a guy walking around for the greater portion of an hour compiling names is not indicative of a lack of taste. Other than, perhaps, a distaste for a guy walking around for the greater portion of an hour compiling names.

I bought it without seeing it because it's so highly praised. And granted, there were a few times when I was locked on the screen in awe (particularly by Ralph Fiennes' performance). There were also many times when I was bored into internet surfing and email conducting. Perhaps it's my disconnect from the human condition, but a holocaust movie wows me with its stirring depictions of war-time horrors; not with the implications of hope and potential and goodness which comes from a guy cutting through red tape in order to eventually save a bunch of people.

Troll though he may be, I've gotta agree with the OP on this one. The movie was boring. The handful of powerful and engaging scenes it contained cannot make up for that fact.

The film was powerful? Hell I don't think I could even power a light bulb with that thing! If those were the horrors of the holocaust I am severely disappointed. There was one powerful moment in the entire movie, and that's when the bunch of naked ladies took a shower. When water came out it was very anti-climatic for me.

I am no troll, I just state the fucking obvious for people who can't do it for themselves.

Then you need to open your perspective and actually gather the idea of what it's about... It's about the lives attempting to and being saved opposed to the lives lost and not deadly visions that your posts indicate you are looking for.

Wishing something was something it isn't, is a sign of making one lose credibility if that's what comes off as their giant criticism. As well as the label, boring.
