    This is fantastic! No more having to download 10 minutes at a time from YouTube and then having the films be taken down due to copyright issues! Thank you so much for taking the time to make this and having the hotlinks! I wonder why Mosfilm has the titles of the movies in both English and Russian for many of the films on YouTube that don't have subtitles?

    Also, you have to click on the CC button on YouTube to get the subtitles to show.

    Hi Greebgnev,

    I found that most of the folks who do the subtitles do them from the very start of the film and you shouldn't have a problem. You can use VLC Media Player. It's free and you can download it here. Then you can launch the VLC Player, Open a movie file, and then pause it and under the VIDEO TAB, Click Subtitle Track to add the subtitles to the movie.

    If it's not in sync, here is an article about how to change the tracking of the subtitles.

    Also while the movie you can use the key combination 'ctrl + j' to decrease the delay of subtitles and use 'ctrl + h' to increase the delay. For every keystroke a 50millisecond delay is added (or subtracted accordingly).

    Now how do you know approximately where to start??? Well, if it is an older movie it should have very close to the beginning of the film the Mosfilm Logo and the English Translation over it. After that you might have written by or directed by and so on and you should be able to follow that.

    Watch the opening of Gentleman of Fortune to see what I mean...

    By the way, why mention only the "Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles" (1981) - this is not a movie, a series of films, starred in the period 1979-1986: "Introduction" (1979), "The bloody message" (1979), "King of Blackmail," "Mortal Combat", "Hunting the tiger" (1980-1981), "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1981), "The Sign of Four" (in 2 parts, 1983), "Twentieth Century" (1986).

    Margosha! Welcome to MR!

    You are most correct and this thread is rather long so I won't make you or others go back and search through it; but, your very point was brought up by dear CoffeeCup here, however, sadly I just checked the links and they are now all outdated. Maybe you can find us some new links??

    Hanna, this one is for you!! Lampada you too!

    Last night, HBO debuted a new series by Aaron Sorkin, same guy who gave us West Wing and a ton of movies like A Few Good Men, Social Network, Money Ball. He is known for his massive amounts of rapid dialogue and being on top of current trends in his shows. This new show is called The Newsroom.

    The opening monologue (or rant) was very good, or as Hanna would say, brilliant. Even Charlie Rose liked it.



    Here is the transcript:
    “Sharon, the NEA is a loser. Yeah, it accounts for a penny out of our paychecks, but hegets to hit you with it anytime he wants. It doesn’t cost money, it costs votes. It costs airtime and column inches. You know why people don’t like liberals? Because they lose. If liberals are so fuckin’ smart, how come they lose so GODDAM ALWAYS!

    And with a straight face, you’re going to tell students that America’s so starspangled awesome that we’re the only ones in the world who have freedom? Canada has freedom, Japan has freedom, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Belgium has freedom. Two hundred seven sovereign states in the world, like 180 of them have freedom.

    And yeah you, sorority girl, Just in case you accidentally wander into a voting booth one day, there are some things you should know, and one of them is that there is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we’re the greatest country in the world. We’re seventh in literacy, twenty-seventh in math, twenty-second in science, forty-ninth in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, third in median household income, number four in labor force, and number four in exports. We lead the world in only three categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending, where we spend more than the next twenty-six countries combined, twenty-five of whom are allies. None of this is the fault of a 20-year-old college student, but you, nonetheless, are without a doubt, a member of the WORST-period-GENERATION-period-EVER-period, so when you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world, I don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about?! Yosemite?!!!


    We sure used to be. We stood up for what was right! We fought for moral reasons, we passed and struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged wars on poverty, not poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbors, we put our money where our mouths were, and we never beat our chest. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and cultivated the world’s greatest artists and the world’s greatest economy. We reached for the stars, and we acted like men. We aspired to intelligence; we didn’t belittle it; it didn’t make us feel inferior. We didn’t identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election, and we didn’t scare so easy. And we were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were informed. By great men, men who were revered. The first step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one—America is not the greatest country in the world anymore."

    Hahaha...Oh, thank you Lampada...watch the opening of this at :50 sec where she says she mixed up Georgia the country with Georgia the state!! "You thought the Russians invaded Atlanta."
    I remember when that happened four years ago!!!


    Edit note: In the past I have not heard Aaron Sorkin have such difficulty forming his sentences. It is interesting that a man who is known for his fast paced, long winded writing style, had so much trouble in this interview. I wonder if there might be something more to this. Could it be why he writes the way he does?

    Has anyone in Russia seen the American, well maybe French, yet dubbed in Russian, film, Upside Down??? It debuted in August only in Russia.

    Here is a link to a trailer in English with French subtitles! I believe it should be released here in the states on December 16th.

    Okay, so I don't know how this stereo type of humor comes across to Russians. So let me post this and then please comment. It is from Saturday Night Live and I can only find copies of the video from Hulu or on NBC's own Website (which I seem to recall people had trouble accessing in the past) so I am hoping that everyone can watch it. For those of you not familiar with Saturday Night Live, the weekly show parody contemporary culture and politics. It picks on Americans just as much, if not more than non-Americans. For example, the opening for last Saturday's show picked on the budget problems that we are having:

    By the way, isn't the girl adorable?

    To me, not very well. But I don't think, in this case, it has much to do with picking on Russians.

    The "bear with me" joke was funny.
    "Who let the dogs out" joke was funny.
    "Dog bite" joke would have been funny if I haven't heard it, or similar, many times before.
    That's about it.

    http://www.mininova.org/tor/1964056%...0DVD%20quality
    12 (number) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Hubby and I watched “12” and found it a rather interesting film. We both agreed very early on that if you took out all of the flashback scenes and changed the Chechen boy to an Hispanic boy (in our area Hispanic refers to anyone from Mexico or Central America) or an African American boy, this film easily could have been relocated here (Washington, D.C. area).

    As I am an outsider looking into your world, I have absolutely no idea if the prejudices portrayed in this are an accurate depiction or not. I can tell you it would be an accurate depiction where I live and it is a sad commentary that we as a society have not come very far since this play and movie were first made in the 1950s.

    I am not certain how many of you know of the Immigrant backlash that is going on in the Washington, DC area or not. I can go into on this detail if people want me to; but, suffice it to say for now, that on my street, I am known as “The American.” When we purchased our home in 1992, it was not that way.

    Personally, I think the film could have done without the war flashback scenes. To me, once again, an outsider, they were not necessary to tell the story and I feel they were purely done for political reasons. The story here is about the differences between people and the events of our lives that shape each of us as human beings. What we believe or don’t believe about ourselves and other. Whether they are a little or a lot and how much these differences influences our lives and what we think of both ourselves and others. I do not need to see images of war combined with the personal character stories to get this.

    With all that said, even IF this film is not an accurate portrayal of the situation in Russia, I do highly recommend this film. I believe that anytime we can see how others view people and it might help us to learn and understand, to get people to discuss the situation, even a little, then it is a good thing. Yes, as E-learner stated, the acting is a little over done in places and just try to ignore the war scenes!
    This morning, there is a massive man hunt on for a "suspect" believe to be Chechen and one of the Boston Marathon Bombers. I was instantly brought back to this film that I watched so many years ago now. Trying to recall what it was about the Chechens in the movie that made the Russians not like them or think ill of them. And why would it is that they want to kill and harm an innocent 8 year old boy who wanted nothing more than peace for the world? Maybe I should have paid more attention to the flashback war scenes. Maybe that would help me to understand... yet somehow, I just don't think I will ever understand taking an innocent life.
