LOL at your tagline of "Django Unchained" Joel. It's hard to even look at a still from "Nevsky" and not conjure up that incredible musical score or the devastating combat montages.

Indeed, score, montage, and outfits too - my favorite of the Eisenstein period talkies is definitely the decadent Ivan Pt. 2, but Nevsky has some of the best costumes of any film ever.
