Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just watched "Whale Rider" and in deference to Blackhand and the other Kiwis, thought it was a really wonderful film.

    Of course, the other really wonderful Kiwi film has got to be LOTR!! :wink:
     
  2. Map of the Human Heart

    Directed by another Kiwi, Vincent Ward , who did "The Navigator"

    Jason Scott Lee and Anne Prillaud (Nikita) and Patrick Bergin which keeps TheFutureMrsPTP happy.

    Stunning photography and visuals , a great story ,it has TFMPTP reaching for the Kleenex every time ....

    .....and me . It's fuggin beautiful. :oops:

    To keep the Kiwi theme running for a second. Possibly the funniest movie I'd seen in a longtime was BAD TASTE directed and acted by a little known Kiwi guy called JACKSON back in the 80's - it is, I believe, the most succesful movie out of that country ever (Piano/LOTR being hollywood productions filmed there I think).

    Anyway, if's available on the http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00006JI16/?tag=armrumser-21 for 12.99

    Also Jackson but even better than Bad Taste:

    Meet The Feebles

    Kind of Muppet Show meets Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets porn
     
  5. I think Jackson followed Bad taste up with a similar gorefest called Brain dead, mutant rats, voodoo curses, zombie mothers etc, top family entertainment. You can't beat Bad taste though, Sheer genius.

    Derek: Pick all the bits of brain up and put them in a plastic bag Barry.
    Barry: No way mate, your the gung-ho scientist - you do it.
    Derek: Oh, alright - I'll be down right after lunch.. But at least get us a blood sample.
    Barry: No need, just wring out me strides...

    And Brain Dead was indeed the follow up to Bad Taste
