    I think it is different with each individual.It also depends on the story line.Movies on Vietnam I have more experience on,therefore can debunk A lot of things others would not.

      It depends on what you mean by serious. I take my entertainment seriously, but I never forget I'm watching a movie and that "liberties" will be taken no matter how realistic or historically correct a movie is supposed to be.

        I too take my entertainment seriously. But I also know it's just entertainment, not education. Though the ideas behind the stories can prod me in to looking more at the history.

          Movies are merely a form of entertainment for me. Unfortunately, there are many who assume that if they see it at the movies, watch it on television or read it in the newspaper, then it must be true. Maybe they're right and I'm just too much of a cynic, but I doubt it.

            Exactly. Alot of Director's/Film maker's try to push Their Own agenda or belief's for example say Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ. But it all come's down to how You the individual interpret's it. Do They not make politically/ideologically motivated movie's in Russia?

              I agree..If I see something and enjoy it I will research it and find the history of the event...

                  Koba, keep in mind that many of the movies in the West don't post things about the U.S. correctly either. I didn't see the movie "Pearl Harbor", but my sister saw it and told me they were so off base in their history that it wasn't worth watching. As a result of her seeing it and her telling me how factually incorrect it was, I had no desire to watch it.

                    With a few exceptions most modern movies are just entertainment to me, I am rather passionate about silent films and pre-1960s cinema.

                      Braveheart is very historically incorrect as well, but it's still one of my favorite alltime movies. But again, its entertainment. I never thought for a second that I was watching a documentary.

                        but those at least don't portray the US as ugly as they do portray, say, Russia in ''Enemy at the Gates''

                          Oh boy, you have no idea. Russia was portrayed as virtue and light in comparison to the way America is portrayed in many (if not most) movies from Hollywood.

                            Of course people are influence by what they see.

                            The movie "Animal House" influenced me to want to attend university.
