2022.01.24 10:49 Ari-nova The Best Soviet Comedies – “Hello, Galochka…you’re about to die!”
| “They don’t shoot like this anymore” - they say with nostalgia about Soviet comedies. These tapes have been popular for decades: the familiar characters with their incredible adventures still make adults and children laugh. |
Perhaps it's hard for a person unfamiliar with Russian history, the Soviet way of life or the cultural code of the Soviet man to understand how Lukashin from "The Irony of Fate" could have mistaken St. Petersburg for Moscow, arrived at the address "at home" and wandered into his (spoiler - someone else's) apartment without noticing the catch.
Or How can one understand where in a simple Soviet apartment - Three tape recorders, three foreign film cameras, three cigarette cases domestic, suede jacket ... Three... Or why caviar, eggplant caviar, is a delicacy, but you can eat black and red caviar with spoons.
Similarly, it is difficult to understand the wordplay and subtle humor of Soviet comedies. - Are you a son of a bitch, an impostor, squandering the government lands?! You can't spare any parishes!
In these and many other phrases there will always be references to the history or culture of our state. And it is put in a joke... it's almost impossible to get by a person from abroad.
But, anyone who really wants to understand Russia even a little bit should watch these comedies at least because we have half the country talking in phrases from these comedies - yes, literally every day.
You'll find out that "I'll tear your jaws out and poke your blinkers out" is... a joke, not a threat. And that "Student, Komsomol girl, athlete, and just plain pretty!" shouldn't offend your political beliefs in any way.
In short, just to understand Russia a little closer, be sure to watch these comedies.
1. Ivan Vasilievich: Back to the Future (Ivan Vasilievich Changes Profession) - 1973
Ivan Vasilievich: Back to the Future (Ivan Vasilievich Changes Profession)
The story begins in Moscow in 1973, where engineer Alexander "Shurik" Timofeyev is working on a time machine in his apartment. By chance, he sends Ivan Vasilievich Bunsha (Yuri Yakovlev), the superintendent of his building, and Georgy Miloslavsky, a burglar, back in time to the time of Ivan IV the Terrible. The pair are forced to disguise themselves: Bunsha disguises himself as Ivan IV (the Tsar), while Miloslavsky disguises himself as the Prince of the same name. At the same time, the real Ivan IV (also played by Yuri Yakovlev) uses the same machine to get into Shurik's apartment, he has to deal with modern life while Shurik tries to fix the machine to get everyone back to their places in time.
2. The Diamond Arm 1969
The Diamond Arm
Diamond Arm has become a cult Russian film, and many Russian contemporaries consider it one of the best comedies of all time.
3. Operation Y and Shurik's Other Adventures 1965
Operation Y and Shurik's Other Adventures
The story is about the adventures of Shurik (alternate spelling - Shurik), a naive and nerdy Soviet student who often gets into ridiculous situations, but always very neatly finds a way out.
4. Kidnapping, Caucasian Style - 1967
Kidnapping, Caucasian Style
The kind but naive ethnography student Shurik, known from previous films as a student at the Polytechnic Institute, goes to the Caucasus to study the ancient customs and traditions of the locals, including the local "myths, legends, and toasts." At the beginning of the film, Shurik is riding down a mountain road in the Caucasus on a donkey. Suddenly a young woman named Nina walks along the road. "A college student, an athlete, a Komsomol girl, and finally a beauty."
5. Gentlemen of Fortune - 1971
Gentlemen of Fortune
The film tells the story of an affable kindergarten director named Troshkin, who looks a lot like a violent criminal nicknamed Docent (Docent, literally docent) who stole Alexander the Great's helmet at an archeological dig.
The Docent and his gang are caught by the police, but the Docent is in a different prison than his comrades. Since Troshkin looks identical to Docent, the police send him undercover to the real criminals in prison to get information about the stolen helmet. He must pass himself off as the real criminal Docent, so to be convincing, Troshkin, an educated and good-natured man, has to learn the lingo and manners of criminals.
6. Office Romance 1977
The action takes place in Moscow in 1976. Anatoly Yefremovich Novoseltsev, an awkward single father of two sons, works in a statistical bureau. His boss is Ludmila Prokofyevna Kalugina, a stern, lonely woman in her 30s, nicknamed "our hag" by her subordinates. Novoseltsev dreams of a promotion and a raise, but is timid to talk to his boss about it. She can not dream at all or it just seems so…
7. The Irony of Fate 1976
The Irony of Fate
A Soviet romantic comedy film directed by Eldar Ryazanov.
The key plot of the film is the dull monotony of the public architecture of the Brezhnev era, which allowed this theme to develop.
Following an annual tradition, a company of friends gathers in a bathhouse (a traditional public bathhouse "sauna") in Moscow to celebrate the New Year. Afterwards, one of them needs to catch a flight to Leningrad, and the whole group is going to take him to the airport. By the time the group reaches the airport, everyone is very drunk. No one can remember who is supposed to be on the flight. By mistake, Zhenya gets on the plane instead of Pavlik. During the whole flight Zhenya sleeps. In Leningrad, the seat neighbor (cameo of Eldar Ryazanov) helps Zhenya out of the plane. Zhenya wakes up at the Leningrad airport, believing that he is still in Moscow.

I am not particularly good at coding or excel. Is there any courses that are good in teaching these that can relate to actuarial science? For example, the TIA technical course or any other courses that are highly recommended?
Also, Is it better to start with python or VBA? (I'm graduating in 7 months too.)

So basically I just came back from 3 days of sick leave for strep. Now I think I may have Covid (family member was sick with it). I've lost my sense of smell and feel dizzy, hoping I don't get too sick. If I keep getting sick (especially with flu, omicron, and strep going around) will I get fired?

2022.01.24 10:49 Insertwittynamehere5 As a transgender person, stop with the trans rights posts
As a trans person, the trans posts are dumbshit Please fucking stop, it does nothing to help the community, and more than that, provides a platform for trolls to be transphobic, and clogs up the community. When I see this shit, it doesn’t give me hope that things are getting better for the lgbt community, because this is not how progress happens, it disgusts me that people who pretend to be an “ally” use us to get likes. As a transgender person, on behalf of the lgbt community, I beg you, stop with these posts.

2022.01.24 10:49 IGuessImDemons Recommendations
Hey everyone. So I recently began going back to PR series I've never seen or haven't seen all of. Does anyone have good places to watch first? I've already done RPM in full and ages ago i saw a few episodes of Dino Thunder & Operation: Overdrive but Netflix got rid of them before I could continue.
Just looking for some suggestions, I've seen everything up to Ninja Storm, inadvertently skipped Dino Thunder and saw S.P.D. instead. Where should I go next? Mystic Force? Finish Dino Thunder or Op. Overdrive? Or totally different and do like Jungle Fury or something?

2022.01.24 10:49 thecauseandtheeffect Just Dance on Switch with less animation than 2022?
Hi first up thank you to all the experts and helpful ppl in this group.
I just got our first Switch and picked up JD 2022 for a low price. All the animation behind the dancer(s) and the screen tipping/tilting (?!) is really bothering me and my kids; it’s hard to concentrate on what the dancer is doing, never mind also try to look at what’s going on in the bottom right of the screen?! It’s like I need 4 eyes to play the game and I only have 2.
What’s a version of JD for the switch that doesn’t have as much animation/stuff going on and it’s easier to focus on/learn the dance?
