Tenko Series 2 DVD - Classic BBC Series Based on real life experiences this is the powerful story of a disparate group of women whose lives are changed forever during their capture by the Japanese after the fall of Singapore in 1941. It is now 1942 and the women have been split into two groups to march to their new camp. Speculation is rife and despite the apparent luxury that awaits them in the new camp, unimaginable hardships are not far away and only the very strongest will survive.

Reefer Madness : George A. Hirliman Considered THE archetypal sensationalized anti-drug movie, but it's really an exploitation film made to capitalize on the hot taboo subject of marijuana use. Like many exploitation films of the time, "Reefer Madness" tried to make a quick buck off of a forbidden subject while skirting the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930. The Code forbade the portrayal of immoral acts like drug use. Templates and posters Here I have gathered some templates and posters that you are free to use. :) All templates designed by me.

Rosewater: ‘Jon Stewart's skills are considerable’ Twenty years ago I used to wonder if Jon Stewart was ever going to come into his own. It was obvious he was brilliant, but TV didn’t have a format for his gifts. Some soon-cancelled chatshows, a couple of movies, a book, and the endless treadmill of the stand-up circuit: these were his lot. Turned out his perfect format was being worn by a jockish fratboy with a hip sportscaster’s shtick called Craig Kilborn: The Daily Show. Within a couple of years – particularly during the weeks-long Florida recount controversy of 2000, when he and his Daily Show reporters stopped shaving and washing, as if caught in some neverending seventh news-cycle of hell – Stewart had made the format his own.

Tenko (TV series) Tenko is a television drama, co-produced by the BBC and the ABC. A total of thirty episodes were produced over three series between 1981 and 1984, followed by a one-off special (which was twice the length of the other episodes), Tenko Reunion, in 1985. The series dealt with the experiences of British, Australian and Dutch women who were captured after the fall of Singapore in February 1942, after the Japanese invasion, and held in a Japanese internment camp on a Japanese-occupied island between Singapore and Australia. Having been separated from their husbands, herded into makeshift holding camps and largely forgotten by the British War Office, the women have to learn to cope with appalling living conditions, malnutrition, disease, violence and death.

Powaqqatsi Powaqqatsi, or Powaqqatsi: Life in Transformation, is the 1988 sequel to the experimental 1982 documentary film Koyaanisqatsi, by Godfrey Reggio. It is the second film in the Qatsi trilogy. Powaqqatsi is a Hopi word meaning “parasitic way of life” or “life in transition” . While Koyaanisqatsi focused on modern life in industrial countries, Powaqqatsi, which similarly has no dialogue, focuses more on the conflict in third world countries between traditional ways of life and the new ways of life introduced with industrialization. As with Koyaanisqatsi (1982) and the third and final part of the ‘Qatsi’ trilogy, Naqoyqatsi (2002), the film is strongly related to its soundtrack, written by Philip Glass.

Grand Budapest Hotel: Saoirse Ronan Talks Muppets, Cakes and Mexico Whoops, I just outed Saoirse Ronan's surprise cameo in Muppets Most Wanted… to Saoirse Ronan. You'd think she would have been aware of that, but although she shot an amusing little sequence where she ballet danced on "The Muppet Show" in Ireland, she didn't know she'd made it into the finished film until I told her. She also psyched me out by saying she didn't have a birthmark on her face in the shape of Mexico in her new film The Grand Budapest Hotel, and ladies and gentlemen, she's a great actress.
