Hey, Mann ohne Namen!

When you blow into that souvenir harmonica that came with the deluxe box set, does it sound even remotely like Bronson's harmonica sounds in the movie?

I've never been able to re-create the movie's harmonica sound on any real-life harmonica I've ever tried...

If i blow into that harmonica, it sounds not really good  Cool

But that is my fault  Grin

Yeah that will be another comedy.

The director and leading actor is Michael "Bully" Herbig. He's got an own Comedy TV show (Bullyparade) and the audience could decide which movie they want to see, and "Traumschiff" (Raumschiff means Spaceship and Traumschiff means Dreamship if you translate it correctly, its a little play with words which can't be translated well) wins.

All the characters in this movie are gay  Grin

Captain Kirk and Co. keep watching Cool

"Der Schuh des Manitu" is an german comedy version of old western classics like Winnetou (called "Winnetouch" in the movie an the character is a faggot)

I saw the movie two times but i can't smile because its to stupid. ( But its one of the most succesfully movies ever in Germany)

The filmmakers of "Schuh....." will release "Traumschiff" (a comedy version of the old Star Trek TV Series)

"Spiel mir das Lied vom Tod" is since its release date a true classic in Germany. "The Good, the Bad and the ugly" is called "Zwei Glorreiche Halunken" and this title sounds also better than "Der Gute, der Böse und der Haessliche"

I guess that a lot of Western and old Cop Movies from Italy released with an different title and thats not always bad. A lot of movies were huge at the box office just because the title.

Well some titles in Germany are different and some just a translation from the original. But "Spiel mir das Lied vom Tod" sounds much cooler to me than "Once upon a time in the West" did. Cool

I saw Irreversible and this movie is running uncut with FSK 18 in our cinema and later uncut on DVD. Our problem is not only the censorship. For us is the biggest problem the classification. A movie for people "18 years and over" is nothing for children but sometimes they cut the movie to get this classification. I don't think that adults can't decide what movies they want to see or which movies are bad. Thats the big problem. The FSK decides for more than 80 Million people and tell them what scene is not good for them. And that is what i hate most.

Its actually for more than 20 years now. The VHS System was born in the beginning of the 80s and all movies were as far as i remember uncut. The only cuts are not because of censorship but the labels decide to make cuts. Maybe for more money or something. The FSK was responsible for the cinemas and then came the VHS. The public prosecutors are banned every Horrormovie (Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 was seized right out of the projector). Especially Dawn of the Dead is the all time favorite of banned movies. Every thing that had/has something in common with this movie is a target for our justice. Even books about this movie!!!!

Schroeder is not the problem. He is still neutrally and has an objective eye for the problem. But there is another one. Stoiber. If he is cancellor one day than we have a huge problem. He trys to ban every Horrormovie out of Germany because he thinks that Horrormovies are responsible for some amokrun. I don't know if you remember the school massacre in Erfurt?? After this tragedy he said that he would do everything to ban every kind of violent movie, game etc. It's a shame because a lot of scientists had proven several times that movies and games are not the reason for such things. I'm working now on my own DVD Label but i will release only in austria and switzerland. Germany is not considered in my calculation Sad

Yes we can but if the tariff (i hope thats the right word) find the package it can happen that they keep it and you lost twice. Your ordered movies and your money. In the worst case they come to search your house Undecided

The FSK (our official rating company) don't have any criteria to me. Movies like "Final Destination 2" and "Saving Private Ryan" are "FSK 16" and they are show a lot of graphic violence, actually they are Splattermovies. And movies like "Bad Boys" and "Django" are "FSK 18" and sometimes even cut!!!!

Even "Halloween" was FSK 18 at the first time but after a new rating is now FSK 16. Most of the italien movies (Copmovies, Western) are FSK 18, cut and sometimes even forbidden.

They dont accept violence in movies, but if you watch TV in Germany you can see all the baddest violence already at ten o'clock in the news. Thats stupid. Sex is not a point. "Color of Night" and "Basic Instinct" are classificated FSK 16 and completly unrated. You can see all the Details. But if there is blood they'll go crazy. Some movies are more than 60 minutes cut and you understand nothing cause the message is gone.

If movies look like "Violence is the only way", the FSK says cut this cut that and then you can possibly get an FSK 18. Sometimes the movies are banned (William Lustigs "Maniac" was the first movie banned in Germany!!!) And if some independent Label trys to release one of this movies, the people behind this label can even go to jail!!!

Hi,

i told you that i live in Germany. And we have a censorship like nobody else in this world. A lot of movies are forbidden and banned out of public (especially Horrormovies) and there are more films you may not talk about and promote them.

So we have a true hobby. Before we buy a dvd or maybe a vhs we check out, if this version is cut or not. Sometimes exists 5 versions of one movie.

Today they already cut movies for the cinemas to make more money. And Warner stop the import of the uncut Harry Potter 2 DVD from Switzerland, cause our version is about 4 minutes cut and hundreds of people bought it in switzerland.

Wich experience did you made with censorship?
