Addressed it by essentially telling the folks that did the petition to get stuffed.

It is not real in present but in future it can be. Just like many movies from past turn out more or less real for nowaday people. Fifth Element had flying vehicles..we might soon get that aswell. They are already in development.

I'm not much into sci-fi, but I must say I loved Blade Runner (both parts). I think the bottom line of the story begs the question: is the android a living entity with real feelings or just an (in)animate object? Here's a beautiful though very sad clip from the movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9KAqhbIZ7o.

White Space is not The Fifth Element nor is love gonna shoot a laser out of you.

Johnny Mnemonic on the other hand... tho I'm 99.9% sure our brains won't go to the cloud for sometime and here on "Earth."

Correction: if we move from Earth then,,, here in reality.

We went to see The Farewell today. I recommend it highly.

Here's the review from my local rag.

^ Many older Hollywood movies are on youtube in full length available but i also suggest watching russian movies and tv series which also come in english subtitles on youtube and unlike american movies|series they not have copyright issues that much, so even newest are available to watch without alternative websites. Maybe then will forum posters see that all systems have + and -.

Dunno. It depends what genre you want. If you want humor then maybe Strange Area, if like about gambling then High Stakes, if about survival then Flint, if about band|mafia then Steppe Wolves etc. Most movies are called 'boevik'(action) and 'melodrama'(soap operas aka romantic) but also about war and other directions exist. All need to do is type "rus movie" or "rus serial" and then if need any genre or other specification and eventually will find something of interest, also check suggestions and related videos, youtube is full with such stuff.

If I do this for US movies/serials I'll get overwhelmed. I guess the same goes for RUS. There's good and bad stuff in every language and I don't see myself going through ALL russian serials on youtube anytime soon.
I downloaded the 1st result of the first 3 searches you provided. we shall see.

edit:
There's no subtitles at all :-(

But there is no other way to find. Have to sort out from many. It is because mostly russian cinema do not create trailers.

For which title(s)? Tried adding 'eng sub' in search? Also for youtube subtitles go without downloading as captions or whatnot(check options|settings). Try watching. Otherwise need use alternative websites..
