  12. It's as boring as the first video which is ultra long and is a forerunner of the languor which blankets the film.
  13.  
  14. I thought this was supposed to be a comedy.  Filmgoers, it ain't.  It's a too realistic picture of what 's happening in eighth grade now, and who needs that?  I went for "fun 'n' games." Not here.

To hide the bodies from the Bolsheviks' opponents, the Whites, the executioners moved them 4.5 miles from the first place they dumped them on July 17, 1918  at what is now Ganina Yama, a monastery.
