Barb, can you... never mind.

Full story:

ST PETERSBURG, Russia (Reuters) - Russian Communist Party members condemned the new "Indiana Jones" film on Friday as crude, anti-Soviet propaganda that distorts history and called for it to be banned from Russian screens.

"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" stars Harrison Ford as an archeologist in 1957 competing with an evil KGB agent, played by Cate Blanchett, to find a skull endowed with mystic powers.

"What galls is how together with America we defeated Hitler, and how we sympathized when Bin Laden hit them. But they go ahead and scare kids with Communists. These people have no shame," said Viktor Perov, a Communist Party member in Russia's second city of St. Petersburg.

Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett (are) second-rate actors, serving as the running dogs of the CIA. We need to deprive these people of the right of entering the country," said another party member, Andrei Gindos.

Though the ranks of the once all-powerful Communist Party have dwindled since Soviet times, its members see themselves as the defenders of the achievements of the old Soviet Union.

"Our movie-goers are teenagers who are completely unaware of what happened in 1957," St Peterburg Communist Party chief Sergei Malinkovich told Reuters.

"They will go to the cinema and will be sure that in 1957 we made trouble for the United States and almost started a nuclear war."

"It's rubbish ... In 1957 the communists did not run with crystal skulls throughout the U.S. Why should we agree to that sort of lie and let the West trick our youth?"

He's right. I never saw any. Shame on you Mr. Spielberg.

Then again, I've never seen Wookies actually pilot a spacecraft.

^ youve never been to Glastonbury Festival,there's Wookies piloting all sorts of things there ;-]

i saw this story at the weekend and couldnt help but think of Borat and Kazakbukistanley or wherever it is.theres nowt like jumping on a bandwagon when the needs surprised the Tories arent saying they defeated communism or something.

more importantly has anyone found the kilo of weed that Tokyo airport customs lost coz they couldnt remember what suitcase they had 'planted' it in?

if you want a film based on distorted history then any 'factual' Mel Gibson one will do for starters...

isnt innuendo an italian suppository?

im gonna ride the wild wind!
