Russian Video: Pirates Of The XXTH Century!

Hello,

This weekend we are watching a Soviet movie “Pirates Of The XXTH Century” (Пираты XX века), 1979!

Kyle read an article in Russia Blog about this movie and told me that he would like to watch it. So now we decided to watch this movie with our readers.

The Pirates of the XX Century is a romantic action-adventure thriller, which explores eternal themes of naval folklore: kung-fu and male bonding. It was the first action movie made in banned in USSR Hollywood action style. It is not even close to the Hollywood action movies of that time. Maybe it is not the best example of Russian action movie. This is just the first experience.
The film was the leader of Soviet distribution in 1980 and had 87.6 million viewers.

Russian Video about Russian City Tula!

Hello,

When we go to our trips to South we often drive by Tula but we never stopped there yet: to close to Moscow to stop at hotel there and spend a night, to far from Moscow to go just there and back home. So now when you watch the video you’ll understand us why we will stop in Tula when we get next chance! Russia Today: Wayfarer:Tula
