Exxon fined for violating Russia sanctions
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-exxon-mobil-usa-ukraine-idUSKBN1A51UH

The Department of the Treasury just fined Exxon $2 million (that's right, million with an "M") for violating sanctions related to Russia's involvement in Ukraine. Why should Russia care about lifting sanctions if toothless enforcement is the alternative?

Playing with less than 7 players
I'm just starting a game to play with a few friends of mine, and because there will only be four or five of us, I was wondering if the game would actually start if we only had 4 players, or if it would just cancel and refund our bets. If it does cancel, is there a way for us to play a game on here with only the four of us?

[STRATEGY] Ancient Med Variant
Hello everyone. I love the idea of the 5 player variant. But searching online I am unable to find strategy guides for EACH individual nation. It also seems Carthage has a good advantage over the others. Also Rome is just as bad as Italy in classic. Anyone have input?

Do Republicans think that Russia is good or bad?
There seems to be debate on the right about whether Russia is to be trusted or not. (The left is uniformly suspicious of Russia). I'm seeing Republican lawmakers being skeptical about Russia, but rightwing media seems fine with them.

End Russia Sanctions Now?
Tillerson has already said wrt the election meddling that it is time to move forward. Why not go all out and just get rid of sanctions altogether? At the least, couldn't Trump just turn a blind eye to violations of the sanctions (Magnitsky Act) and return the 2 spy compounds? Who's gonna stop him?

How did Shakespeare in Love win best picture instead of Saving Private Ryan.

Saving Private Ryan is overblown, too long, and relies too much on patriotism and hubris. It's a 7/10 film. Okay, and worth watching once, but not particularly great or classic.

Jamie - while its campy - kinda feel good; its so much better and rewatchable of a movie than Shakespeare in love. Im struggling to think of the other movies which lost but I know that was the same year Thin Red Line was also up for best picture. Also a way way better film than shakespeare in love.

It was like Elizabeth, Thin Red Line, Saving Private Ryan, Shakespeare in love and other movie. Realistically that was 4th best movie in that list AT BEST

OK how about 1980 Academy Awards
Kramer vs Kramer wins over

All That Jazz
Apocalypse Now
Breaking Away
Norma Rae

So Kramer v Kramer easily 4th there. I didn't see Norma Rae, so maybe 5th.

I don't regard Saving Private Ryan as being significantly better than Memphis Belle, Schindler's List, or the recent Fury wjth Brad Pitt or the earlier 1970's Battle of Britain ( other ww2 movies made around the same time, compared to ww2 movies made in the 1950's.. The weakest ww2 movie of recent times was, imho, Inglorious bastards.

I don't usually consider Inglorious Basterds when I think of WWII films. It's intentionally inaccurate. I think it fits more along the lines of the rest of Tarantino's work than with any of the likes of Saving Private Ryan or Schindler's List or anything else.

TrPrado... Fury with Brad Pitt is a completely diff WW2 film than inglorious... inglorious bastards was definetely not best picture worthy. It was cornier than django... which is saying alot
brainbomb (163 D)

Fury is an insanely good film. Start to finish badass. It was marred by controversy bevause they filmed a tank battle on remembrance day in rural UK. Locals got very upset at hearing explosions and the pomposity of film crews disrupting the peace. Ppl felt it was disrespectful.

I forgot about another few great" war movies..." Oh, What a Lovely War" directed by Sir Richard Attenborough, with a stellar cast and production company, "The Iron Cross", directed by Sam Peckinpah and " The Tin Drum". The corniest Ww2 movie.."Dive Bomber" starring Errol Flynn..as a doctor, and the constant smoking of cigarettes by doctors and patients is a scream.

How did Shakespeare in Love win best picture instead of Saving Private Ryan.

The whole academy system is flawed. I mean Life Is Beautiful also lost. And if you don't think the whole thing is rigged. See how the awards went. Best pic: Shakespeare; Best director: Spielberg; Best actor: Benigni. Obviously they wanted to give everyone best picture, and when millenals make up the majority of voters they will start having co-winners.

I agree with the bomb, this was a sham, just like Hollywood.
