The Killing Fields is an amazing movie. What i didn't know until the other week was that after all Dith Pran went through in Cambodia, he ended up getting murdered in LA in 1984

I didn't see The Bourne Identity, but I'd recommend The Bourne Supremacy. Pretty suspensful stuff, and the action scenes were well done.

Hey Summer,

I'll make you a deal, I'll watch "The Borne Supremacy" if you watch "The Borne Identity."

Wow, you never saw "The Killing Fields," it's an excellent movie. Holds you interest throughout. You'll find it even more interesting now that you've actually been to the Killing Fields & the Genocide Museum.

I know! I bought the book over there right after I went to see S-21 and the Killing Fields. I even found another booked compiled by Dith Pran, with stories of survivors. It is all just mind boggling to me...that things like this even happened.

You know of it, you hear of it, you read about it, but you can never comprehend it. I still dont, knowing more now than I did before...

And yes, I think I am the last person alive that hasnt seen The Killing Fields...

Yeah sure, we believe you!!!

I enjoyed Mission Impossible shot in Prague..

Being a Kiwi, I have to know if you've seen the Lord of the Rings Trilogy?

Ok, I'm back (after "a little while").

I've never liked science fiction or fantasy movies. I went to see the first "Lord of the Rings" and didn't really like it. I was actually kind of bored (it's not the shortest movie). So I skipped the other 2.

Having said that I should point out that I think New Zealand is a beautiful country with lots of nice people and lots of nice sheep.

Sticking with the "Kiwi" theme, I've seen and like Kerry Fox and was rooting for the girl from Whale Rider to win the Oscar.

By the way, I've thought of renting "Once Were Warriors" (1994). It's about a modern Maori family. have you seen this one? Is it any good?

I never saw Mission Impossible, but I'll have to check it out because I think Prague is the most beautiful city in the World. If it shows scenes of Prague then I know I'd enjoy it. I never knew it was filmed in Prague.

You got a deal! Now I have to pray hard that the TV station here shows the film!

You know what really struck me when I went to the genocide museum. I had a guide taking me through the museum and toward the end, he told me that before 1975 and Pol Pot, that the Genocide Museum we were walking though was actually his high school that he had attended. For some reason that really stuck me. Made it all seem (don't really know the right word or words) even more unbelievable and believable at the same time. That just always stayed with me.

Seeing all those skulls in the map formation and then the giant towers of skulls out at the fields, and to think that it happened during our lifetime is really unreal.

I loved Whale Rider! I cried the absolute whole way through, for some aparent reason. I also took great pride in pointing out that "wh" is pronounced like "f". I must have had a glass of wine or two.

...you like Kurosawa films as well? Have you seen Stray Dog?

I saw "Ran." Never saw "Stray Dog," although I heard it was good. What are his best films?
