Movies I Want To See

Recommended Posts

Just watched "Save Your Legs!" about an Australian Saturday afternoon cricket team that gets to tour India.

Funny with great scenic shots even if you have no interest in the sport.

if you like Aussie tv series , try "rake" the Americans are now doing a series about the same .

Bad Boy Bubby (Aussie cult film)

Review : imbd

I saw this film for the first time years ago, and it never left my mind. I have since seen it many times and for each time i see something new, or something i missed. It's an ongoing story, that changes side by side the changes i go through, while going through life. The film is dark, it's very in your face. Strong images and a deep sadness is present for the most parts of the plot. But it has another more interesting side, and that is the naive and curious mindset of Bubby. how he deals with life, and how i learns and how he imitates life, is a lesson learned for everyone. To me it's all about being able to adjust, to create, even when all you have is shattered. There is a way in every situation. It may not be the common way, it may not be normal, but what ever path you find, is right for you. The people in the film are real, there is no glamour. Yoy believe their story, even if you only get little sneak peaks of how things used to be. I would call it a feel good movie. Some people might say that is a very strange thing to say about Bad boy Bubby. But Bad boy Bubby is a very strange film as well. A 10 it is.

save your legs , just watched it , really enjoyed the Aussie humour.

just found out that the Australian horror movie "wolf creek " will be hitting the screens again with he sequel "wolf creek 2 "

release date 20th February 2014, But I really think no one on this site will be interested .

Lured by the promise of an Australian holiday, backpackers Rutger, Katarina, and Paul visit the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. Their dream Outback adventure soon becomes a horrific reality when they encounter the site’s most infamous local, the last man any traveler to the region ever wants to meet; Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).


As the backpackers flee, Mick pursues them on an epic white knuckled rampage across hostile wasteland. Only one will remain to be dragged back to his lair to witness the true magnitude of his monstrosity. And if the last man standing is to have any hope of surviving where no one else has survived before, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster and become every bit as ruthless as the monster inside the man.

Saw this one on a plane a while ago Scea. It gave me a chuckle.

Funny enough, my friends in Oz haven't heard about it so not sure

if it was on at the theatres or went straight to dvd.

Rake is seriously funny. Richard Roxburgh as lawyer Cleever Greene is hilarious.

I've posted this in the fun and entertainment forum where these should probably

be, but will post it here anyway.

Top of the Lake

http://www.imdb.com/...ref_=fn_al_tt_1

I'll start off by saying that this 7 part series won't be everyone's cup of tea.

But if you like a dark brooding, well written drama, it may well be.

Written and directed by Jane Campion, it's about a 12 year old pregnant girl
who tries to commit suicide and then after being rescued, suddenly disappears.

A dogged detective who refuses to give up the search for her and in doing so finds
herself in knee-deep small town secrets.

IMDB gives this a 7.5 whereas I would rate it an 8.5.

Highly recommended.

^^Borrowing it off the internet now. cool.png

There was a comedy series on the ABC... I think.... a few years back about a married couple who were lawyers, their receptionist was a really stunning Asian girl.

Can't for the life of me remember it's name.

Or much else these days. unsure.png

Great stuff. laugh.png

I am glad I made you happy this morning , I seen this series too, it is so funny , and yet wasn't that popular .I think the reason was because it was on the ABC Television. That station has many great and wonderful shows , but do do get the recognized till they go to a commercial station.

Just tried to fin it on the web... No one has it . Then I looked on eBay Australia , and found one for $10 the whole series . I am going back to Aus this year so I am going to buy it . I then will give you one copy.
