I just wanted to

> Thomas Otto, Royal Netherlands Navy

Umm, you're both wrong dudes...

The Theme to "The Hunt For Red October" is actually in invention of "polidelus" whatever the hell Composer's name is.

It's not actually even russian and the words to it are pretty forced, and wouldn't regularly be used in Russian patriotic music.

The only Russian song in the movie is the Soviet National Anthem sung by the sailors when the Sub goes silent for the first time.

In fact, the number of Language Errors in the movie is long, making me wonder if my Russian is piss-poor or if they aren't really speaking much russian in the movie.

And the Accents of the sailors singing the Anthem is attrocious...It's not "sayuz nee RUSHEEMEE..." It's "Sayuz Ner-usheemee"...for example...

And what's with Captain Remus asking Ryan if he knows Russian.

Remus: "U po-russki" What is that? must be slang or something...

"Vui znayete russkii yazuik" or "tui znayesh..." "tui govoresh po-russki" "vui govorete..."

Anyways...I'm just wondering what russian they're speaking on that Soviet Sub...

perhaps it is another classic case of Americanism and too lazy to research everything fully out.

But back on topic, the ONLY Russian song in the Movie is the Soviet National Anthem and its not on the sound track.

That is why it is called "The Hymn of the Red October" or whatever...

Hope this post has been educational.
