Used to be called Serbo-Croatian a long, long time ago. But honestly I don't know if that was a construct imposed by the government, or if those languages are really close enough to be "umbrellad" in this way.

The borderline between dialect and language is fluid.

I appreciate (*) that "the civilised world" tried to tie them together along country borders (hundreds of years ago; Germany is a good example for that), but obviously that also has its disadvantages.

(*) why? well, imagine my grandma speaking this southern dialect, I literally could not understand a word she was saying, but thankfully she also spoke the standard language that evryone understands.

English grammar is kind of subtle and infuriating with strange exceptions, but surely German has enough grammar already?
Or were your they and we the other way round?

This is the easiest way to avoid people getting into an argument. Serbo-Croatian is among the most difficult Indo-European languages when it comes to grammar. This serves the poets well, but makes the poetry pretty hard to translate accurately.

English is funny, it used to be a pure Germanic language until William the Conqueror invaded Britain, whereupon he replaced all the nobility with his own Normans, who were French speakers, and made French the court language. This led to a centuries long mix in which English and French formed a unique combination, with a largely Germanic vocabulary and a largely Romance grammar.

It is still called Serbo-Croatian in international linguistics.

I don't know nothing about that. :-)

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Well, in Murder On The Orient Express (1974), the Princess Dragomiroff has her assistant, Hildegarde Schmidt, read Goethe to her (Kennst du das Land), so nyeah, OT all along.

Can't find a clip uploaded, dang it.

Even hhh has to find that funny.
The real issue was that I didn't see the wood stump in the grass and it tripped on it. Hit it with ankle hard.
Went to put iodine but the wound infected. And that hurts.
I know, I know, should have used rakija instead. big_smile

@Hhh I dont remember that scene with princess Dragomiroff. Dragomiroff sounds like a fussion of Slavic and German last name, likely East German.
Many people in East Germany have Slavic roots. Because there were a couple of tribes living there and got conquered, assimilated & converted to Christianity.  But last names and toponyms remained.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Sadly, this one (one of my favorites) didn't play, it froze. However, Internet Archive does have some classics...

Godzilla (1954)...

https://archive.org/details/01Godzilla_201811

Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964, Japanese version)...

https://archive.org/details/mothra-vs.- … collection

RODAN (1956, English version)...

https://archive.org/details/Rodan_201906

And, of course, Monster Zero (my second favorite, 1970)...

The Omega Man (1971)

John Carpenter's The Thing (1982)

Still to come... Alien, Aliens, Terminator, T2, The Abyss (director's cut), McQ, Papillon, Dirty Harry and all of Clint Eastwood except for maybe Paint Your Wagon, Touch of Evil, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Empire Strikes Back, Taxi Driver, Heat, and Westworld to start.

70s nostalgia. My parents mistakenly took me to a drive-in and I watched this macho-cop, hyper-machine-gun, cocaine and hookers film at the tender age of ten. Scarred for life. Brannigan is my second pic, fuck his westerns. Clint for westerns.

I do like The Quiet Man (not a western). And Rio Bravo (the quintessential western). And The Sons of Katie Elder. And Rooster Cogburn. I love The Shootist. Gaa, I'm such a hypocrite.

Stagecoach, The Searchers, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance - the "must see" John Wayne westerns. Fort Apache is also good; mainly because it's sympathetic to the Apaches (American Indians in general) - rare for a 1948 movie.

The Shootist is his last film, and one of his best.

Between two fairly mediocre western actors, though, I'll take Clint Eastwood over John Wayne any day.

You want quality acting? Gary Cooper. Steve McQueen. Henry Fonda. Val Kilmer and Kurt Russell in Tombstone.

I haven't watched this in more than a decade, maybe not even since it was released. The Pelican Brief, I think it's aged fairly well...

One of the best westerns ever... Sergio Leone, Director, starring Charles Bronson, Henry Fonda and Jason Robards. Music by Morricone, of course. Once Upon A Time In The West (1968)...

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

^ The critic reviews were bad and so is yours. The studios don't know what the audience wants anymore. The audience barely knows what it wants anymore, but we know it's not what they're serving us. Not another Marvel production, please. And the new Dune sucked.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

It is a product of the times....very female orientated, very I don't know how to put it without starting something.

Most of the main characters were women, the powerful characters were all women.  Neo's power was minimised.  I didn't dislike it because of that, I felt it was catering to those who are all for that sort of thing. 

At no point in any of the previous movies did they allude to what happened with Trinity or her potential, it made little sense. The Matrix seemed to follow the current trends in movies...... I am trying to avoid spoilers.

It was to be expected though considering the change with the Wachowski's.

In my mind it has fucked it's own legacy.

This could lead to a topic of conversation I don't want to have here. I'm trying to tread lightly.  Feel free to delete if inappropriate.

Makes it easy to not go to the movies when tripe like this is put out there.

P.S. I really liked the new Dune.

BO-RIIIING! Flat ugly dull, poorly scripted, poorly directed, poorly acted. I didn't even like the new Blade Runner that much. Can't wait to see the new Matrix. The cinematography better not be white, blue and tan.

In my mind, there's only the first Matrix (and The Animatrix, if that counts). Not even leather-clad Carey Anne Moss on a Ducati 996 (RIP Massimo Tamburini) will make me acknowledge any of the sequels.

EdiT;
The only way they'll get me to watch a new Matrix film is if they cast Sector 11 as Neo.
"Damn, Neo. You got old. Okay, let's just forget the red pill. This new blue one will make you hard for days!"

"Woke" is the word. Pandering resulting in homogeneity. The same lighting, the same quips, the same acting, the same story Woke cinema sucks. Re-watching Tampopo to clear my head.
