Just explain that the USSR was the bad guy, not the Russian People.

Of course you can just get a UW and she won't care much, My fiance's grandmother (maybe great grandmother) told her first hand accounts of the starvation and how some people turned to cannibalism when Stalin starved them out by sending trucks and men to harvest crops and empty foodstocks to take it all back to Russia in the '30s.

Your reference is to the Holodomor. I posted something about it a while back in the Politics/Culture section, but it didn't seem to generate much interest. Sad, really - because it does help to explain the psyche of a nation and its relationship with her stronger neighbor - as well as the current political climate between Ukraine and other world powers today.

FWIW

Question: Would a Russian person be offended by the Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoons when they see Boris and Natasha? There was never mention of them being Russian except it is a dead giveaway when you hear their accents. Whether people are offended or not I thought these cartoons were brilliant. An emcee, on the Gary Moore show, named Durwood Kirby, was extremely offended with an episode of Rocky and Bullwinkle searching for the coveted Kurwood Derby.

I only recall Durwood Kirby being a sub on Candid Camera.

For a hilarious portrayal of Russian oligarchs with Mafia muscle, check out The Saint with Val Kilmer and Elisabeth Shue.

My vote for the all-time worst flick involving USA-CCCP
is Red Dawn. Plot Synopsis: At the outbreak of World War III, midwestern high school students turned refugees slowly organize themselves into an effective guerilla force to turn back the tide of Soviet invaders, dedicated to making those Russkies rue the day they parachuted onto U.S. soil. Side-splitting!

Clyde,

You could always rent "Rocky & Bullwinkle" the movie (about minus 2 stars) and find out.  I had Lena saying "I hate that moose and squirrel" when she first came here.  (While her accent was heavy):cool:

Vaughn,

Didn't the kids in Red Dawn call themselves "Wolverines"?  God, why do I remember that?  You're right though, that movie sucked.

Best Russian movie I have seen is "The Thief."  Lots of Russian actors showing up in American movies now.  Remember the movie "Behind Enemy lines"?  With Owen Wilson?  The assassin stalking Owen at the end is a rather famous Russian actor.  And then there are all the hot RW at the Boda Bing on the Sapranos, the one legged housekeeper that did Tony and .......:toocool:

Reminfs me of one of my favourite jokes!

I friend of mine had a preference for women with false limbs; arms, legs, didn't matter to him. One time he got off with this girl knowing she had false limbs somewhere, part of the excitment being not knowing which until, well, u know!

Anyway, he gets her into the bedroom and she says "take my top off..." So he does, getting more and more aroused and her false arm falls off!

Wowm he thinks! Now she says "Take my jeans off...." He does and her false leg falls off!

This takes him so much by surprise he leaps onto the top of the wardrobe, shaking with surprise and arousal......

She says "Don't you want to fondle my breasts?"

He replies "Ok, throw them up here then......."

Well I thought it was funny.....

What movies do you watch together?

What movies do you watch together? Do you watch only English or a blend?

Do you call her into the room if you here any Russian words to see if they
are authentic or not?

We watch only American films and TV shows.

We don't have high speed internet, so can't download some of the Russian movies with subtitles she wants us to watch.

We never watch movies together. 


We are watching Detective Anna currently.  The better half says the writer is not very imaginative, and he likes pointing out the incorrect language, manners, etc., given the period.  But, I can do the same in American/Canadian productions, so IMHO, it's not a big deal.

We watch both American and Russian movies and series together.

Mini Me and I watch Russian cartoons all the time I love Masha i Medved
and Pin Code. I don't really care for the modern American cartoons.
Nu, pogodi! is the least politically correct cartoon out there. It's sorta
like Tom and Jerry/Roadrunner with heavy smoking involved.

Mini Me likes watching about a quarter of a football game because
I yell at the TV to run, run, run! or get him! get him! I yell that
stuff when Mini me is watching. I yell important key advice at
the TV to help my team when Mini me isn't with me.

I record most everything including FB games. 

I call wife in to watch guy make one handed catch of FB or run a kickoff back 100 yards or so.

So watches just because I ask her too, but is totally uninterested.

But then she doesn't care for soccer either.

Basketball is her sport, but we can't go because of Covid.
