    Well... Congrats on winning the biological lottery.

    lol Well, my own "complaint" personally, is that, in most cases, they get actual Arabs to play Arabs; actual Chinese (or, at least, Asians) to play Chinese, or Japanese, Koreans, whatever; actual Hispanics to play Hispanics; but, often, just pick some random white American or European dude to play a Russian.

    We laugh, you know, often, listening to American actors trying to speak in "Russian"

    Mission Impossible 4 was a good movie. The head SVR (Russian foreign intel) guy opposing Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt, was played by Vladimir Mashkov

    Famous Russian actor, pretty much Russia's own answer to Tom Cruise or Matt Damon or such lol

    That was very nice to watch. I dare say, if, instead, there was another bloody American (or Swede, i.e. Dolph Lundgren as Ivan Drago or Russian mob boss on "Arrow" today lmao) fucking butchering our language, there would probably be a boycott haha

    Fair enough. But I don't watch Eastwood films for the snazzy plot twists.

    It's the acting. He's just riveting, to me at least.

    Well hell's bells, that's a silly complaint. How many Americans are there, do you think, with any sort of ear for Russian?

    Imagine how the Chinese/Koreans/Japanese/Every Other Asian nation must feel, as to how we choose to cast roles with characters that are supposed to be from THEIR countries.

    Or any African nation.

    BTW, Daddio, is there any way to watch Russian movies or tv, with English subtitles on American YouTube or Roku?

    You make their films sound very interesting.

    Groundbreaking movies took on racism as did Archie Bunker.
    Racists loved Archie Bunker. They didn't realize that THEY were being mocked.
    Today's movies about racism don't need to be subtle anymore.

    I have always thought that Clint eastwood was a better director than he is an actor. IMHO he is one of the better directors, I will generally go see a movie based on his having directed it.
    Gran Torino was just too predictable. It was Clint Eastwood playing Clint Eastwood.
