    For my 7th Birthday 02 March 1946 my eldest sister took me to the Gaumont cinema to see Walt Disney's film Pinocchio, that was the first film
    I ever saw, there is nothing like a child's imagination to bring these things to life, for me as a kid Disney's films were magic. In 1948 & 50 we
    had Oliver Twist and Treasure Island, jus good acting and basic props. Todays movies such as the 2005 Peter Jackson's King Kong was a masterpiece
    of CGI and other special effects, and Avatar in 3D was stunning, over the years I've seen so many great films, in all categories, I couldn't hope to
    name a favourite, my head spins just thinking about it cheers

    Again talking of Younger Years may not have been my first Movie but can recall this one as it had the first 3D available in South Africa, and some of the Scenes were so realistic at the Young age,with all sorts jumping out at you felt like it was really hitting you , i think i may have been about 12 ?? Why did they ever stop that 3D it was terrific!
    The name of course was Bwana Devil
    Cheers

    Bwana Devil is based on the true story of the Tsavo man eaters and filmed with the Natural Vision 3D system. The film is notable for sparking the first 3D film craze in the motion picture industry, as well as for being the first feature-length 3D film in colour and the first 3D sound feature in English.

    Get a pair of 3D Glasses and watch its a buzz from the past

    Tom Hanks has been made the 'Official Hero' of the American Merchant Marine for his portrayal of U S merchant mariners in films, ain't life wonderful, as there are over 2000 U S Merchant Mariners still alive from WWII perhaps one of them could have been nominated, as they according to U S Govt sources had the highest deaths (8000) of any maritime service in WWII worldwide, seems then ole redneck boys need to brush up on their history.

    So there we have another celluloid hero, like John Wayne who is the U S Marines 'Official Hero' even though he never served in any WWII action, or subsequent conflicts

    Ain't celluloid wonderful

    Seems to have received generally positive reviews from critics, who highlighted the effective use of the 90-minute runtime. Would imagine it will be well worth looking seeing.

    When I am watching American seagoing movies, and having been at sea, they always seem like comedies, but I suppose to the general public they may seem real

    I have ordered the 1955 novel that it is based on and
    will see the film as soon as pos, then decide how it
    compares to C. S. Forester.

    I didn't watch many of John Wayne's war films but I have watched and enjoyed most of his westerns, the movie industry is there for one reason,
    and that is to make money through entertainment, if you want the facts only "stay with the Documentaries", I think it's sad if anybody cannot watch
    a movie without the need to analyse the personal life of the cast involved, Jack Hawkins for instance was a colonel in ENSA and made a couple of
    films during the war, whereas Robert Newton {Long John Silver} was an AB on an RN escort for several Arctic Convoys. "Really what does it matter"?
    if an actor served or not, after all you go to the cinema to be entertained, and for a lot of people, it's an escape from reality for a few hours. Tom Hanks
    is a very good actor of comedy and drama, he is not a Gung Ho actor and always plays his parts with realism, like all other actors, he is given a script
    to follow, they don't write the storylines, just my view.
