    I glanced through Wikipedia article. It doesn't mention the opening scene explicitly, but it does mention a scene that is clearly suggestive of it and that was shot somewhere near Zvenigorod. As this place was used more than once, to make sure that this is it, and if you don't want spoilers, you might want first to watch the film and then inspect the part "Filming" of the article.

    Hi, Rockzmom.

    Yes, "IT" was used as the name of the "extraterrestrial mind", so I used the capital letter.

    "CoffeeCup"
    Would we, being so primitive, be interesting to It?
    "rockzmom"
    Would we, being so primitive, to even be interested in (learning about?)to it?
    I tried to say that
    1. We are primitive (in the sense of the universe)
    2. Would "It" want to learn about us?

    Quote Originally Posted by rockzmom

    I used "spacemen" as a synonym of "our" (That part of us who are flying in the universe )
    I see that word "personality" does not fit the idea.
    My idea for the word "personality" was "personal thoughts of a human" or his "selfhood", maybe "individuality".
    Idea is to pose the "individuality" versus "All the knowledge of mankind" as the answer to the question "What can we show to It".

    "CoffeeCup"
    The personality would be interesting to be acquainted or to be played on?
    "rockzmom"
    Would the personality being interesting in be acquainted or want to be played with?
    if "IT" selects the "individuality" (personality) as more interesting than "All the knowledge of mankind". What kind of interest it will be?
    Choice 1: "IT" would like to contact with us.
    Choice 2: "IT" would like to play with us.
    Firstly I wrote "play with" but after some time I changed to "play on" in order to emphasize that this"play" is not the "play" like a child with another child but like a child (="IT") with a toy (="us") or like a cat (="IT") with a mouse (="our consciousness").

    Rockzmom, I am looking forward for your corrections, in order to rewrite my review in more understandable way.

    P.S. I really believe that this movie is worth to see in the good quality and the full screen size.
    So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    I watch "3rd Rock from the Sun" now. It's much funnier in English than translated on Russian as I previously watched it on TV.

    Ahhhhh... then you can't be all that bad and you have my permission to stay in your cave and not come out until you have watched all 6 seasons!

    This was a GREAT show and even though I am most certainly a female, I must say... "Sally" was SMOKIN' HOT!!!

    Watched it every week! Anything you don't get, just ask away!!

    Okay... so below is a season 3 highlight and I selected this one as it has a couple of scenes in it that we have already discussed on this thread.

    At the 1:34 Mark... Is a spoof of "Footloose" as "Dick" was the father/preacher from "Footloose"
    At the 2:30 Mark... Is a spoof of the "STEEEELLLLLLAAAAAAA" line from "A Street Car Named Desire"
    Now, at the 2:43 Mark, you may not understand this one so let me explain it..It is a spoof on Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and their really old commercials. I only found ONE on you tube!
    [video:i7kb1ey0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfGQmotCIN0[/video:i7kb1ey0]

    So, now that you know these little things, you can watch the highlights and enjoy!

    No problem. Now that you have explained what it was you were trying to say, it makes it easier. It will take me a little bit and I don't have the time just this second. But I will get back to it .

    I did check my library system, and they do not have a copy of it. So I will have to do some searching for a better copy and then the subtitles for it.

    Rockzmom, I can see Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but season 3 highlight isn't available. I pasted the link into the address box but it wouldn't do too.

    Studyr... maybe the Internet connection in your cave is bad??

    No, I tried it too, and it would not work for me either... here is the link and I tested it and it seems to be working. Let me know if you still cannot watch... and thanks for links to Solaris and the subtitles. I will test them out soon!

    3rd Rock From The Sun... Update... yet again....

    I know this is now WAY to complicated; however, anyone who still wants to see this video I have provided TWO, count them TWO choices:

    Choice A: If you have a free or paid for Mega Video account, log into Mega first and then use this link and you "should" be able to watch it there, no downloading. http://www.megavideo.com/?v=FQ4VFUXA

    Choice B: You can go to Media Fire and download the video, File Size: 34.35 MB, here is the link:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?nmnwqntm5v2

    I hope after all of this, it is worth it!!!

    rockzmom, thanks! Now I see what you mean. Other scenes are very funny too. I'd like to register as STELLA at some forum with this avatar (just made it from your video), but the nickname seems to me somewhat female

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    Coffee Cup:

    Here is my second attempt at my corrections and understanding exactly what you are trying to express in your review. Of course it would help if I had had a chance to see the movie!!! So, if I have messed it up again, just make notations, and we can try again.

    A [s:298gyrrb]V[/s:298gyrrb]very impressive psychological movie [s:298gyrrb]turning[/s:298gyrrb] attempting to turn the viewer [s:298gyrrb]to pass[/s:298gyrrb] from thinking as a human to thinking past that and thinking of the human mind as being under [s:298gyrrb]the[/s:298gyrrb] a microscope.

    What if the extraterrestrial mind (“IT”) exists? Maybe “IT” [s:298gyrrb]even[/s:298gyrrb] doesn't need to be shaped into some form of life? Would we, humans and our entire universe, being so primitive, [s:298gyrrb]to[/s:298gyrrb] be even interested[s:298gyrrb]ing[/s:298gyrrb] in learning about "IT"? [s:298gyrrb]to it?[/s:298gyrrb] What could “IT” [s:298gyrrb]It can it take[/s:298gyrrb] learn, if anything from us? What can we [s:298gyrrb]can[/s:298gyrrb] show or possibly teach to “IT”?

    Would we be able to show “IT” [s:298gyrrb]The A[/s:298gyrrb]all the knowledge of [s:298gyrrb]the[/s:298gyrrb] mankind and our universe or would we only be able to [s:298gyrrb]we can only[/s:298gyrrb] expose our simple minded society and [s:298gyrrb]spacemen (to our ?)[/s:298gyrrb] personality? Would the [s:298gyrrb]personality of the[/s:298gyrrb] encounter be of any interest at all to [s:298gyrrb]interesting to[/s:298gyrrb] “IT”?

    Would [s:298gyrrb]the[/s:298gyrrb] our personality [s:298gyrrb]would[/s:298gyrrb] be[s:298gyrrb]ing[/s:298gyrrb] interesting enough for “IT” to want to become [s:298gyrrb]in be[/s:298gyrrb] acquainted with us or would “IT” see us more like a cute toy to tease or torment? [s:298gyrrb]want to be played on with?[/s:298gyrrb]

Ideological barriers prevented its infiltration to the bereft of sin territory of a socialist state and contaminating pure virtuous minds of its inhabitants. The only tangible unforbidden thing about the movie was the music from it. It was very much liked, it was beautiful indeed, but many were curious about the movie itself and when the barriers collapsed with perestroika coming in, the first thing in the morning, liberated masses tossing away their shackles rushed to watch “Godfather”. It makes me wonder, "where were those people at the time, who claim they have not seen the movie?"

    I am glad that you liked it. I hope others enjoyed it as well. There have been 28 views on MEGA, so I do not know if that means other MR users have watched it under Mega or just people have stumbled acrossed it as I named it a rather odd name on Mega.

    As for using it as an Avatar... I have a couple of thoughts on that one...

    I think it would depend upon the forum and how many people would understand the meaning behind it. Did you understand it before I explained it on this thread? Had you heard of Street Car Named Desire? Have you read the play or seen the movie?

    With all that said... I still think you would be considered a GUY as it is a GUY pouring beer all over himself and screaming a girl's name! So I think you would be safe.

    And ya know... I have an photo of my daughter that was taken of her from one of her jobs as my avatar and my nick is RockzMom and everyone here thought I was a GUY

    So whatever... if you like it, use it!

    Okay all you multilingual persons or polyglots!

    Here is (what I hope you can watch, I tested the link from withing this site so half the problem from last time is gone) a fan made clip of 3rd Rock shows where they used different languages within the show (not dubbed, the characters actually spoke the lines within the script).

    Order of languages:
    French
    Spanish
    Russian
    Greek
    Chinese
    Turkish
    "Turkeys"
    Thai
    British
    Italian

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    Solyaris ("Солярис", 1972) review. The final cut. Thanks to Rockzmom.

    A very impressive psychological movie attempting to turn the viewer from thinking as a human to thinking past that and thinking of the human mind as being under a microscope.

    What if the extraterrestrial mind ("IT") exists?
    Maybe "IT" doesn't need to be shaped into some form of life?
    Would we, humans, being so primitive, be even worthy of "IT's" attention?
    What could "IT" learn, if anything, from us? What can we show or possibly teach to "IT"?
    Would we be able to show "IT" all the knowledge of mankind or would we only be able to expose our personality?
    If "IT" would be curious of our personality, would our personality be interesting enough for "IT" to want to become acquainted with us or would "IT" see us more like a cute toy?
    Rockzmom, The idea is mainly focused on the "IT" and the personality of the human who meets "IT", so the society and the universe are out of the line. The clarifications "to tease or torment" after "a cute toy" are removed, as you noticed somewhere above Russians really like the questions to be left unanswered.
    So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    Yesterday I was watching the film "Brazil" and suddenly there was this scene there
    [video:16uco316]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEVHqgF__lw[/video:16uco316]
    which obviously is a parody of the certain scene from the certain Russian film. Here it is:

    Tennessee Williams was well known writer in Soviet Union for his plays "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof". There was a radio show named "The theatre at the microphone" which I liked to listen very much. So I had listened both plays about 25 years ago. I hate Blanche. Finally she'd got to asylum, that's for her. My point of view is completely the same with Stanley's. In fact, Stanley is the same with me. Yesterday, I was at work, but my daughter played flash games and µTorrent was on, so at my surprise I found the movie download complete this morning. At the end of the movie, Stella takes her baby and says that she will never be back to Stanley. Williams had never wrote such a nonsense.

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    Basil77 & studyr (and everyone else).... I just do not understand these silly rules.

    Okay, once again... two choices:

    Choice A: If you have a free or paid for Mega Video account, log into Mega first and then use this link and you "should" be able to watch it there, no downloading: http://www.megavideo.com/?v=JG1VMOH7

    Choice B: You can go to Media Fire and download the video, File Size: 84.03MB, here is the link:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?zqzttmimxz1

    Order of languages: (and make certain if you watch this one you comment on their language abilities!!!)
    French
    Spanish
    Russian
    Greek
    Chinese
    Turkish
    "Turkeys"
    Thai
    British
    Italian

    But wait... there's MORE... and hopefully I did this all correctly.

    I have also posted the FIRST episode or pilot. It took me a while to find this one and I did so for my girls so they could understand how the whole series started. I wasn't certain how many of you might have actually seen it.Tommy's lines in this are hysterical! Now my girls know for certain what teenage boys are thinking!!!

    Choice A: If you have a free or paid for Mega Video account, log into Mega first and then use this link and you "should" be able to watch it there, no downloading: http://www.megavideo.com/?v=H460BLJ0

    Choice B: You can go to Media Fire and download "3" videos (as the size was too large for one video).
    Part 1 File Size: 77.05, here is the link: http://www.mediafire.com/?uznjkiyizmn
    Part 2 File Size: 66.01, here is the link: http://www.mediafire.com/?nntzymdzrew
    Part 3 File Size: 7.53, here is the link: http://www.mediafire.com/?iomnmny4djw
