Right then, let's assume you're an A-list Hollywood director. Let's assume your next epic is an aeroplane based blockbuster about a female WWII Soviet fighter pilot. Let's assume you're looking for the lead actress.

So with tasteful pics in mind, let the auditions commence....

Um, howabout someone who can speak Russian, is Russian, and the film would be done in Russia? I think that would make it altogether realistic. Furthermore, the Po-2 is a cheap plane to make, easy too. Blueprints, kits, and engines is mostly all you need to make them. So making a movie with the real airplanes instead of CG models would be more interesting!

I guess that would al depend on who was making the movie. I'm sure they have good actresses from Russia.... I just dont know odf any so I didnt mention them. Yeah good points about the planes.. although with the CG stuff possible.. it might be hard to tell the difference in the long shots.

I think maybe we'd need an actress who's not as well known a all these Hollywood stars. The problem with casting very well known actors is that the audience of the film will have often faulty preconceptions about the character portrayed by the given actor due to the given actor's previous works.

Edit: Oops.. I meant Actor... Thats what you get when you're visiting Ubi while writing literary analysis essays...

PBNA-Boosher
12-13-2005, 07:07 PM
You're very right, LStarosta, I think a good unknown would be very much better for a role like this. Stars do attract too much attention. Instead of hiring the rumored "great actors/actresses" hiring incredible unknown ones would produce an incredible reality. An added bonus would be if the film was done in Russian, with subtitles, not dubbed. (come on, you guys aren't that lazy) Also, I think that the movie should be an intensive thing. Yes, these people should go through some type of rigorous training, they should know how to fly, and they should spend countless hours in simulation of this combat getting to know what it is like. They should learn to shoot.

The problem I find with modern acting is that these actors and actresses of the silver screen rely too much on special effects. Remember when Star Trek was just a set with the bridge, and how if the ship got "hit" everyone would just rock back and forth? Yes, it was corny, but it was believeable, right?

To act you must have experience. You can't act what has never really happened to you. How could a kid who has never had a bike before act as a kid riding a bike? He couldn't. He has to learn. This is another reason why an unknown would be better. Bigshot actors and actresses will only do certain things. Unknowns will perform the roles they are given, not to a specific stereotype. If their character is a navigator, you can bet your butt that these actors will spend their time learning what aerial navigation is. A "star" may not even bother.

Very good point, and another great reason why modern "WW2" films will never compare with those made in the '50s and '60s, because many of those actors back then actually had served in the military

I'll have to disagree with both of you. Actors are there to act. Their real-life experiences are irrelevant to their acting ability. Btw, what WW2 50s and 60s movies do you have in mind? I can't think of any good one in terms of acting.

To act you must have experience. You can't act what has never really happened to you. How could a kid who has never had a bike before act as a kid riding a bike? He couldn't. He has to learn. This is another reason why an unknown would be better. Bigshot actors and actresses will only do certain things. Unknowns will perform the roles they are given, not to a specific stereotype. If their character is a navigator, you can bet your butt that these actors will spend their time learning what aerial navigation is. A "star" may not even bother.

Very good point, and another great reason why modern "WW2" films will never compare with those made in the '50s and '60s, because many of those actors back then actually had served in the military </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I'll have to disagree with both of you. Actors are there to act. Their real-life experiences are irrelevant to their acting ability. Btw, what WW2 50s and 60s movies do you have in mind? I can't think of any good one in terms of acting. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I remember watching an interview with...*complete mindblank*...one of the great British actors of the period anyway (Richard Todd? Anthony Quayle?) who basically said it was easy to notice that most modern day actors had no military experience...little details, they didn't stand, sit or walk like fighting men for example. Whereas the actors of *his* generation had all served so they were able to pull off military roles more convincingly in film.

Which films? All of the ones mentioned above, plus of course the classic.... Ice Cold In Alex http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Yeah, well, to my discredit I spent the last thirty odd years watching The Guns of Navarone and thinking, 'David Niven, you mincing poof, you've never been near a gun in your life,' only to discover, courtesy of this forum, that he was a Commando Lt. Colonel in HM Royal Marines.

How can you act what you don't understand? Experience doesn't mean you have to be excellent at it, but know just a little bit about what you're doing, and actually do it. It WILL look fake and does if you just sit there looking at a map. But if you actually plot the coordinates and headings, waypoints, etc.... the doing something becomes the reality, and therefore, the actor is acting.

The verb "to act" implies an action, that being, doing something is imperative. You must act out a "verb." You can't act "hat." There are things you can do with that hat, but you can't act "hat." Even more complex, you can't act "happy." There needs to be an underlying reason why you are happy, something you are doing or have done has made you happy. Happy is an emotional state, not an action.

Robert DeNiro does exactly what I've said above. When he has roles as a police officer, he will shadow them for a few days, try to understand the average policeman. WHen he is pretty sure of a good base, he builds on it using his own characteristics.

Have you ever watched a kid's movie where there are young teenagers (13, 14 yrs old) as the stars, and they're supposed to love each other by the end? Revisit it, look in the end. I find that a lot of those "love scenes" are fake. Why? Because most of them don't know how to act that loving emotion. It's not really their fault, they just haven't experienced it yet.

So basically you're saying that the child actor from "The Sixth Sense" would had to have spent some time with actual walking/talking ghosts in order to play his part properly and "understand" what it's like "see dead people".

I agree with Neural-dream.....actors are there to act...it's what they do...that's their job.

Another good example is David Lynch's "The Elephant Man". John Hurt could never have truly "understood" what it was like to be John Merrick.

Acting is a talent and a skill. Jamie Foxx for example, will never "understand" what it's like to be blind his entire life yet he was brilliant in "Ray". He may have learned Ray's mannerisms and movements by watching old footage but you don't have to "understand" to act the part.

Dakota Fanning is coming..... Have you seen Monster? Theron was great in that... The problem is not the actors and actresses IMO but the scripts and the studios... IMO a script is just as important as to how a movie will be as te actors chosen. DiNero is indeed "Da MaN"... Even if many of his characters are basically the same guy.. but the scripts..... the scripts make a world of difference. It is the same with singers. Brittany Spears believe it or not is one heckuva singer. She is just taking the schlock road... but the girl has pipes....

Well, there are things that can be done. A powerful tool at the hand of everyone is what actor's call "substitution." Basically, it's using past experiences of your life to recreate the emotions that you might be going through. So, for example, in the Sixth Sense, the kid would probably be scared ****less, and all he would have to do is remember one time where he was scared the hell out of his mind and use that to substitute that emotion into him.

BTW- Jamie Foxx used contacts that would make him as blind as Ray Charles for a while to understand what it was like to "see" like Ray Charles. This is another form of substitution, but in this instance, they're creating that emotion/reaction for themselves.

Plus she has already played a Russian soldier in "Enemy at the gates". I wasn't overly impressed with the film but thought she was quite good in it.(Especially when compared to pretty boy Jude Law playing gnarled peasant Zaitsev! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif )

Here's a premise for your film.

Don't make your leading lady a young woman.
Make her an older woman.
Make her an older woman who has seen it all. She has about a dozen chips on her shoulder and a grudge in her belly. The war has taken everything she loves.
Her country is ravaged, and most of her family is dead.
Her brothers and sisters have all gone off to war and most of them will never come home.
She has a burning hatred deep in her soul, and revenge on her mind. There is nothing left for her but to defend her country (which she has grave doubts about) and to extract German blood.
Using political contacts she got to know, from her now dead husband, she gets herself into the Soviet air force.
She becomes a matriarch figure to the young women pilots and guides them in life and battle. The male pilots grow to greatly respect her and sometimes seek her out for guidance and life lessons.
And of course...she dies at the end.
But we are left wondering if she died because fate desired it...or if she wanted to die.


And then you pull a dump truck full of money up to Meryl Streep's front door and give her absolutely anything she wants in order to play the part.

Rachiel Weiz, drool. She's cuter than a basket full of spaniels.

Title? "Minsk Minx Mayhem." It'll have them queueing up the street.

The oriental angle's a winner, a blond, brunette, and an oriental looking lovely, and a stern commander with that 'teacher's' look. Some plain tomboy as a crew chief who turns out to be super sexy and quite a pilot, saying the day when the Lufties pay a visit to the airfield while the squadron's away.

It'd be one taut team of talented aviatrii taunting Lufties to tears.

Well, Miss Litvyak was 23 when she died in an airbattle fighting something like five or six 109's on her own. She was a very angry young woman as her fiancee was killed in battle (don't remember if he was a pilot as well), and she was generally aggressive about the war, wanting to defend the Motherland, and all that. She would fit the bill for a main character, and she's young, and was pretty good looking.

Or if you were hellbent on an older woman, then perhapps Marina Raskova would be good. I think she was about 30-odd when she was killed. She was the one who convinced Stalin to found the women air regiments, and she commanded them until her death.

But I still say Angelina Jolie would make a great Russian aviator, whether she can act or not!!

On the final pass they clip wings and spin out to belly in close to each other between the rival ground forces. As the stunned soldiers from both sides look on, they fling their flying helmets to the ground and we climax the movie with a catfight that would make Tarrantino hang up his clapperboard......finally our heroine lands the decisive haymaker punch, we see the inspired Red Army advance and the deflated Nazi's throw down their weapons.....

Oh man, time for me to come out of lurk-mode. I can just see the Korean War sequel.

As the film opens, our Russian beauty (untouched by the hands of time) has put her aviation days behind her and labours in a tractor factory somewhere outside Vladivostok. *Think fetching red headscarf and overalls that are a little too tight across the chest. Perhaps a smuge of grease over her left cheek too for effect*

Amid the smoke, soot and noise she is suddenly called away to the directors office. Inside is the local Commissar and two shady looking gentlemen who must surely be KGB.

A few moments of small talk. How is she enjoying her stay at the factory? Not missing the excitement of the old days?

One of the KGB men spreads a sheaf of grainy black and white photographs out on the directors table. Our hero looks down and gasps in shock. Impossible! They are all of a tall brunette woman. She wears a flight-suit and appears to be performing a preflight check on a sleek, silvery jet fighter.

"These photographs were taken two weeks ago at Kimpo airbase in South Korea" The first agent says, "You recognise this woman?"

Without taking her eyes off the photograph, our hero nods silently.

The two agents look at each other and the first nods almost imperceptibly.

"Comrade" he says "I think we may have a job for you".

1st Scarlett Johansonn (you guys noticed how petit she is? I like her voice)
2nd Kiera Knightley or Natalie Portman (they look alike)
3rd Rachel Weisz or Angelina Jolie
4th Liza Boyarskaya (russian model ..and she's already russian)
5th Laetitia Casta (french hottie)
6th Sienna Guillory or Milla Jovovich (resident evil hotties)
7th Jeniffer Connelly (you gotta love those eyes and eyebrows)
8th Charlieze Theron (who else thinks she looks better as a brunette?)
9th Yelena Zelenskaya (chick on my sig)
10th Maria Zarapova (sp? the tennis foxy lady)

You blokes are shockers http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif


So basically you're saying that the child actor from "The Sixth Sense" would had to have spent some time with actual walking/talking ghosts in order to play his part properly and "understand" what it's like "see dead people".

I agree with Neural-dream.....actors are there to act...it's what they do...that's their job.

Another good example is David Lynch's "The Elephant Man". John Hurt could never have truly "understood" what it was like to be John Merrick.

Acting is a talent and a skill. Jamie Foxx for example, will never "understand" what it's like to be blind his entire life yet he was brilliant in "Ray". He may have learned Ray's mannerisms and movements by watching old footage but you don't have to "understand" to act the part.

There's good acting and bad acting and a good actor will make you forget you're watching an actor.

I'd have to disagree with you there. Unfortunately, I wrote heaps on the subject but I just lost that post and all of it, so I'll just recap. Ive been doing acting for 3 years, and one of the most important things were taught IS to "understand" the character. You need to know everything about them, quirks, mannerisms, personal opinions, weather for the day, what they ate for lunch, etc. Literally. It's wayyy more than spouting out memorised lines.

Now, can we have a little less of the cliche stuff goin? Unless Flyer is pulling my leg (which I suspect he is http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif), we're lookin for a proper film. Or, perhaps two; a proper film, accurate, no cliches, honest acting, and the Hollywood version: Hollywood babe with DD's spoutin AK's with tanks exploding in the background randomly, then a sudden rain shower drenching her in the *ahem* camouflage white shirt. Being only 1 layer, a mere singlet, in the Russian winter.

Young ms. Tapping with the American flag may have tons of experience, but I must confess it fails to show. As I see it, the heroin must possess three basic properties:

- She must be able to look 20ish.
- She must be able to look good even in WWII Russian flying outfits.
- She must look like someone with whom you€d actually entrust several thousand Rubels worth of aeroplane.

Conserning ms. Tapping, apparently having failed even in the rather simple task of flying the flag, has the look that would make me hesitate to entrust her even with a lawn-mover.
