WILD WEST, BUT IN JAVA?!?

You can also check out a very dynamic trailer for Indonesian western movie (I'm not kidding) BUFFALO BOYS which also had its run at some of the movie festivals albeit the more obscure ones. The story of the movie revolves around two brothers named Jamar and Suwo who came back to the land of Java to avenge their father, who was a Sultan, after years of exile in America. Singapore's official submission for the 'Best Foreign Language Film' category of the 91st Academy Awards in 2019 is Mike Wiluan's directorial debut!

  2. Human survival is always an interesting movie topic. The Arctic as location makes it even more so. I suppose the actor is an outstanding one because he's on his own there, and watching one man during the movie could be quite boring, unless that man is very good in his role.

  3. If my plane ever crashes in the arctic, I hope I just die right then and there. Being stranded in the middle of nowhere is bad enough, but add in snow? That's pure hell.

    2. I don't even think that would be enough to give me the will to carry on. I despise snow and cold with a passion.
