Post by Cynical Cinephile » November 3rd, 2017, 8:34 am

Since it's relevant now and whatnot, and there's nothing that's beyond humor, so:

Rape Fear - a documentary about 5 young, aspiring actresses who are hesitant to try their luck in Hollywood after finding about the inner workings of the industry.
The truth is you're Donny, and I'm Walter. But I'm tryin', Ringo, I'm tryin' real hard to be The Dude.

The Thong
Opening shot: a dog runs over a white beach, chased by a helicopter. A guy from the helicopter tries to shoot the dog.
Russ Meyer's remake of the Carpenter's classic. This time it doesn't take place on Antarctica, but on a tropical island. The alien life-form shows himself as a beautiful woman wearing only a thong to captivate the men of earth and spread a virus to take over the earth.

You mean in addition to their natural organs? Or waking up surrounded with vaginas? Because I bet life would be happier for many if that was the case.

The Bitchhiker - along a lonely stretch of desert highway, a gay couple on a roadtrip stumble across an older woman whose car has broken down. Unable to help, the offer her a ride to town. Along the way she peppers them with questions, complaints, nags, rants and repeated suggestions that they are too old to be palling around together - they need to settle down and start families. The movie ends when they return her to her car and leave her there.

Well, as the Oceania challenge winds down, I figured we needed some new films to consider adding to the official Australia list, so what about:

We of the Never Sever: This documentary is about a fringe religious group who is staunchly anti-amputation, even in cases where it would save a life.
40,000 Norsemen: Tens of thousands of Norwegian soldiers travel to Australia to save the Australians from invasion from what they assume is the British...
Dead Heat: While Americans hope for a white Christmas, Australians just hope they don't die from the heat. An investigation into the air conditioning availability through Australia.
Little Fist: A rare Australian martial arts picture, a young fighter takes on the most ruthless opponent, the Kung Fu Kid.
Rad Max: The devastatingly handsome host of the Australia challenge demonstrates his awesomeness through a series of stunts conservatively described as "bad ass."
