Yet to catch up with that post apocalyptic epic, at least the fucker delivered old mail, a least they fucking got mail!,
9% on green tomatoes, maybe not then.
I read the book years ago, seem to remember it was alright. I don’t think I have seen the film yet, or if I have then it wasn’t memorable!
It makes Waterworld look like complete garbage. :shifty:
I don’t mind Waterworld, Dennis Hopper is nice and OTT in it.
It's entertaining in a movie junk food kind of way.
I will give it a spin, had a look on Amazon reviews waterworld got half a star more than the postman, I did enjoy the concept of Waterworld and it was fairly well realised apart from the epic battle at the end, I'll go in with an open mind, we all look for different things in films, appreciate the reviews

What the hell are you all talking about in this thread?

A song?

A movie?

A film?

The Brit is talking about a song, the Canadian is talking about a Movie, if theres any Yanks there, their talking about Movies too, the Brits are talking about Films, and I'm talking about Broken Britain and the appalling postal service and how collectors of CDs are getting the short end of the wedge when it comes anything like a quality service, Olaf is just pointing a gun at everybody.

I would have thought N.Z would have had some indiginous peoples but I'm not that well travelled so wouldn't know, the only thing I think I know is that N.Z is like going back in time a bit, not so much rushing to the future, like quaint U.K, but that was a while ago I heard that....and the Film 'Once were Warriors', which is a brilliant film, very powerful and sad, from your previous posting you like you're reggae, I don't know if you can access BBC 6 music but they are celebrating Trojan Records 50th on monday 26th Aug, I don't know if its specific progs or all day, will have to have a research, hope you like Negus :o)

We all travelled here from somewhere else.
The story about NZ being "quaint UK" was true, shops closed at midday Saturday, pubs closed at 6pm and women weren't welcome, men wore long socks and sandals to work and everyone lived on a quarter acre section and mowed their lawns on Saturday afternoon. It was like 1950's southern England. Thanks to the EU, NZ aligned more with the US and over the past 20 years or so shot past the UK.
Sadly, Once Were Warriors was an accurate depiction of family life in poorer parts of south Auckland.

Thanks for the heads up re Trojan Records I will try and find it.

The first year I taught my rock history class, a student wrote a wonderful paper on the Dunedin Sound of southern NZ in the early 80s, and the difficulties of being a tight and supportive community yet ambitious and desiring outside recognition. He tied it to globalization and what it meant for NZ, about access to the world but letting the world have access to NZ. I knew zilch about that scene, so that alone made it enlightening, but more generally it was a smart use of music to explore larger historical problems.
