I'm glad that Spielberg took notice of Yulia's inspiring interpretation, but I'd be doubtful about giving her a move role...
Mind you, Though these things are sometimes subject to change, That Spielberg has announced his next directorial project to be "Indiana Jones 5",
Though the plot is still unknown, Part 4 had Cate Blanchett as a Russian, So maybe he'll focus more in that direction, Though at the end of that one they also went to Extra terrestrial territories So you never know
Wasn't there a similar piece of news about Russel Crowe sending Yagudin an autographed photo or a letter after the Gladiator routine?
Of course you can say you don't like it because that's your prerogative and you're welcome to it. But please don't put absolute statements out there when thousands out there disagree with you.
I watched Johnny Weir's SL. It was alright, and I'll watch it again, periodically, but it's not nearly as great as other programs of his. For example: For some show fashion on ice(?) Johnny skated to Ave Maria, a song that I listen to but I don't really like that much, while wearing this fur monstrosity. Nevertheless, I loved the program, feeling the interpretation.
Katarina Witt's SL? I tried to watch it, I mean I really tried, because some people on these boards said it was good. I didn't make it through even 30 seconds of it. Of course she still was interpreting it. Just not in a way that resounded with me.
Joshua Farris. (I assume this is who you meant?) A very good skater, but his SL interpretation did not even begin to create a response of the magnitude Yulia was able to from me. My own personal opinion, not an absolute statement.
And this does not have anything to do with things like Yulia's age, gender, etc. When I watch Yulia's SL, there is so much happening. I'm now trying to put into words something that can't be properly expressed in words because it means something to me; much the same way the music obviously matters to her, but I will do my best. Every single time I've watched her LP, even when watching the same competition, a different emotion or even multiple tangled-up emotions, are being shown to me. It's similar to a jewel, many different facets can be seen/felt/expressed.
I'm going to try to say this delicately: several of the best skaters may be known for their interpretation of the music, but it does not resound with me. Does this mean they're not feeling/interpreting/emoting? Absolutely not. I would never say that. So why are all these people trivializing Yulia? It's horrible. What would your reaction be if your sister skated to music that had a emotional impact on her, managed to touch many people, and then someone dismissed her as being "inferior"? Wouldn't that be horrible? In the same vein of someone trivializing the Holocaust, although certainly not anywhere near to that degree. Anyway, I hope I've given you something to consider and you realize that, while you don't feel in response to her skating, we do.
