What's the point of being an Australian guy traveling through India if you are going to go to India to meet other Australians?

Sólo Con Tu Pareja 1991, Unrated)
A Little Princess 1995, G)
Great Expectations 1998, R)
Y Tu Mamá También 2001, R)
Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal have become quite a popular double act in South America and you can see why in this film. Unfortunatly though, I found Y Tu Mama Tambien to be a bit of a dissapointment. Its become a victim of its own hype. It's not a bad film at all, just not as good as i'd been lead to believe.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 2004, PG)
Prisoner of Azkaban was the first Potter film I actually enjoyed. The previous films I'd caught because my family would watch them at Christmas. I still wont read the books and can't understand why many adults do, but I started watching the films. I even saw one in the cinema. The films also improved immensely with actors such as Oldman and Thewlis joining the cast.
Paris Je T'aime 2006, R)
Children of Men 2006, R)
Fantastic film! A horrible version of the future, filmed beautifully, with brilliant acting and great direction. The cinematography is second to none with CGI used properly and in moderation. The Hitchcockian one-take shot towards the end of the film is the best bit of film making I've seen in years! Great film!
The Shock Doctrine 2009, Unrated)
Gravity 2013, PG-13)
Funny old film Gravity. It made me feel dizzy and a little bit sick but in this one and only instance, that was a positive thing. I can find no fault with it, although as much as I love Sandra Bullock and I thought she and George Clooney were great, if I had made the film I would have cast completely different people. In fact I would have made quite a few changes and yet I consider it faultless. What the heck? Maybe the whole blockbuster/indie crossover confused me. In that sense it really is a new kind of film, yes the visuals are amazing, the intensity and drama are exhilarating, and yet the quiet moments are not what we have come to expect from a blockbuster but more from an indie. Alfonso Cuarón started as an indie director and has shown that he can do both and do them well. He has also sold me the concept of 3D filming, I was skeptical before but he has shown the way forward. Thrilling throughout, an amazing cinema experience and pretty much faultless.
