1. The Twelve Chairs (1970)
GP | 94 min | Comedy
In 1920s Soviet Russia, a fallen aristocrat, a priest and a con artist search for a treasure of jewels hidden inside one of twelve dining chairs, lost during the revolution.
Closest one to the original, despite allowing too much artistic visions. Ostap is spot on, Kisa is close. Sets are very well done and work well to create an atmosphere. I have a problem with sugarcoated ending, but I understand it. A very good movie.
2. Twelve Chairs (1971)
PG-13 | 161 min | Adventure, Comedy, Crime
Two gentlemen of fortune from the times of Imperial Russia are looking for the uncountable treasure at the dawn of Soviet Union age.
4. The Golden Calf (1968)
174 min | Comedy
A crook named Ostap Bender, who survived a murder attempt by Kisa Vorobyaninov in "12 Chairs," now schemes to extort 1 million from an underground millionaire.
I like 12 Chairs the book much more than The Golden Calf book. Therefore is took me longer to get to the movie also. Movie is good. Has quite a number of memorable one-liners, good acting and interesting story. Ostap burned out and it shows. Has some problem by it being a soviet movie, but probably is the most competent of soviet 12 Chairs movies.

With the exception of a single shot - it is pretty much a perfect horror/sci-fi flick. There is not much I can say about it. It is a masterpiece.

Alien, but reimagined as an action movie. Has blockbuster aspirations and "bigger is better" mentality that I don't like. Still, a great and very enjoyable movie.

Alien going back to horror and, suddenly, misery. Misery and suffering. Has some terrible cg, but what can you do. Good for different reasons than the previous installments, but is still enjoyable.

93 min | Comedy, Crime
Tim and Dan - fellow losers from a provincial town. Studies over, they don't want to work and don't have girlfriends. On the way to a dream and hope to get everything at once guys are taken to perform the task of the local bandits.
Comedic take on small-time crooks trying to get big. Roman Karimov's homage to Guy Ritchie. Has varying degrees of acting skill (some actors are better than wood, I meant the others). Has very morbid sense of humor. I enjoyed this one.
