Movies I Want To See

Recommended Posts

You would be surprised where you find them, I picked up an old Chips Rafferty movie in Vientiane a couple of years back.

Another find was Walkabout in one of the shops in Tachilek.

With a young Jenny Agutter swimming naked it may not be to everyone's taste though. cool.png

That scene was cut out for the American release . Another great Aussie film is "rabbit proof fence " it is a true story .The policies depicted in the film were enforced by the Australian government, we are told until 1970. Aboriginal children of mixed race were taken by force from their mothers and raised in training schools that would prepare them for lives as factory workers or domestic servants.The 3 girls who were taken start walking toward their homes. It will be a journey of 1,500 miles. They have within their heads an instinctive map of the way and are aided by a fence that stretches for hundreds of miles across the outback of Australia , to protect farmlands from a pestilence of rabbits. Great Film

Indeed, Rabbit Proof Fence was a great film.

I found a less known movie in a similar vein, Samson and Delilah, it was made in 2009 and I highly recommend it if you come across it.

Just downloaded a new iPad app called Parallels Access.

You can access your computer anywhere around the house on your iPad.

Great for sitting out on the deck watching a movie.

One of the best movies I've seen this year is The imposter.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1966604/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

A documentary based around a missing 13 year old boy from Texas.

Three years later, the family gets a called from the police in Spain

saying he has been found.

If you get the chance, do yourself a favour and have a look.

I have seen this and you are right , what a great film.The Imposter has many lessons for the rest of us, it reinforces the golden rule, never assume anything about anyone.

Just downloading it.

Is it a true doco or a movie based on real events?

hi

check this out

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fr%C3%A9d%C3%A9ric_Bourdin

The private investigator who realised serial con-artist Frédéric Bourdin had impersonated missing American schoolboy Nicholas Barclay is hopeful he will find the teenager's body .

New film 'The Imposter' by British director Bart Layton, tells the astonishing true story of how Bourdin persuaded an American family that he was their lost son Nicholas.

Nicholas vanished from near his home in San Antonio, Texas, in 1994 when he was 13 years old.

Bourdin was found by police huddling in a phone box in Linares, Spain, three years later and managed to convince the authorities and Nicholas' family that he was the missing schoolboy.

He kept up the pretence for three-and-a-half months, moving into the teenager's bedroom and even attending a local school, before he was outed by private investigator Charlie Parker.

Yeah, I have a lot of movies on a laptop and external drive and just plug it into the TV with a HDMI cable.

I see the app is only a free trial so plenty of time to see if I'll use it.

Here's a review.

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.
