Woah! Where the hell have you been??! Welcome back!

My fave Aussie film, especially to watch on a dreary rainy day, is The Man from Snowy River. Still get anxious watching them ride down the mountain.

Started coaching a couple of years back so don’t get in much. Good to see you’re still adding some class to the joint. Agree with Man from snowy, its a beauty.

Some great movies you’ve mentioned there, although no mention of Alvin Purple was surprising Shocked Laughing

^ Laughing I have actually seen it, years ago! Wouldn't exactly call it a masterpiece, but it does contain some excellent documentary footage of the Australian bush.

Nice work, Presti! We’ve collectively put together a nice cross section of Australian cinema here.

Man from Snowy River mentioned twice (prior to Stui naming it for a 3rd time) but didn't make Presti's list of what's been mentioned? Not the most accurate of lists Wink

There's still plenty of titles to come...

Anyone seen Pawno?

And what about WogBoy and its sequel? Although the thread title says Great Australian Movies...

Fixed, thanks.

Guess I'll update the list when we get to the next page, if we get that far?
