I'd love to see a more updated, theatrical release of the events based on the Romanov deaths.  And I don't mean a lovely PG-13 movie.  If another movie is made it needs to show what really happened.  Not just people getting shot and that's done and over with.  When we see them die it needs to be gruesome and make you cringe at the terrible nature in which they were killed.  I'd love to see a movie leading up to their deaths, possibly maybe even based on their entire time in the Impatiev House.  Any other thoughts?

Well, the death scenes needs to be updated, with the new details we have from the Yurofsky note (example, Olga and Tatyana in each other's arms, etc.), but being all blood and guts? I don't think so.

As for the Ipatievskaya Dom scenes, it would be difficult, because we don't know a lot about what happened to them in those days, and it was probably tedium and repetitive...I dunno.

Isn't there a Russian movie portraying their courageous behavior in the face of death?

Definitely some documentaries need to be updated.

Yes, Romanovy: ventsenosnaya semya is such a movie.

And I agree about the documentaries.

Well I don't think we need to see them gruesomely and graphically executed just to show their 'bravery.'  It's their life i'm interested in seeing, not their deaths.

They were probably all screaming their heads off anyway. If someone says 'ok we're going to kill you now' you wouldn't be like
'ok cool i'll be brave' you would be like ' *^$%#$*%#$&#%@%&%#@&&$&&$%&$@#'

Ok, maybe I got a little carried away with the blood and guts.  But I would really love to see a movie showing how everything really was and not candy-coat it, if that's the word?

I agree. More realistic, and less like an hagiography (no offense to Russian Orthodox).

Yes that is true I agree with you Fairy we do need to have a movie made that shows the whole murder scene not just for 2 minutes but like for maybe 10 minutes we can understand better about how they got murder who died and what happened like when they claimed one of the girls screamed at the end of the murder. But it should not be like violent with blood and guts then it would be a rated-R video. It would be more interesting if we had that becuase like it would be much more better pictured thing about what happened to them. But still if they had the murder scene included won't it be turned into a Rated-R movie, that is realy suppose to be focusing on Romanov history not the murder scene? Well I suppose that it is for both but still it would be rated-R or PG-13. It is just all events that happening in history.

It would be interesting to see a new film about the lifes of the Romanovs in the light of the fact that we now know for definate that no-one survived. It would be nice for the film to be in Russian too with subtitles and hearing the royal family speak in the language (or languages) they would have spoke in.
I personally am all for historically accurate films with the actors speaking in the characters actual language. I'd love to see a Dutch film made about Anne Frank, but thats another matter.

That's a great idea Charlie!  A straight out Russian film would be perfect.  And even though this isn't about Anne Frank I agree with you on that one as well.

I always wanted a Russian movie about the Romanovs come out(with subtitles of course)

It would be nice to see a dutch Anne Frank as well,but at least there's ONE good and accurate film about her,if you haven't heard of it,it's called "Anne Frank:the whole story" starinng Hannah Taylor Gordon as Anne who looks almost EXACTLY like her

what i also would love to see is a French/Austrian movie about Marie Antoinette's final days,starting at the Tuliries and ending at what happens to the other friends after MA's death(Polignac for example)

Actually Ortodox hagiographies don't spare the details on all the horrible things that Martyrs went through. You should see what happened to some of the Great Martyrs under Diocletian such as St George or St Catherine. I think in the west, Saint's lives got kind of sugar coated during the middle-ages.

it would be nice if they made a movie like that but, its realy hardt to make one because normal movie take like 80 min + and there is not that much information about the days in the ipatiev house
