    You obviously didn't see the movie based on your ridiculous review. Of course you're not the only so-called critic to do that! Aside from the other things wrong with your analysis, in a featurette on the Blu-ray disc you can watch archival footage of real drovers of the period, real snooty aristocrats of the period, real 'mission' children and the real bombing of Darwin. Everything portrayed in the movie is spot on so get over yourself and stop reviewing movies, you're not good at it.

      "… a DVD that comes with barely any extras.""… on the Blu-ray disc you can watch archival footage of real drovers"DVD and Blu-ray versions of a particular movie often tend to have different extras. So before you start making accusations over what is really just a difference of opinion about a movie, perhaps you should get your facts straight.Although, your rantings are typical fare from the cowardly types who feel safe to hurl insults only if they can do so without signing their name.

    Well, that doesn't sound too hopeful, since I just won a free copy of the DVD. Being a big fan of "Moulin Rouge", I was looking forward to seeing it, even though I already knew from others that it wouldn't be as good, but still wanted to give it a chance.

    "…a remake of "The African Queen" … set in the Outback…", eh?I like that – considering that the Bogart character in the original book is Australian, and as changed to Canadian so Bogey wouldn't have to struggle with the dialect.

    Why is Australia being reviewed here?

    Actually I did suffer through it and it was completely improbable but then that's Baz for you, it's not meant to be reality. It's hardly spot-on its like caricature.
