    Dunkirk in Jakarta! If You Ain’t Seen It Yet, Go Today! 

    After a weekend marked more by inertia than anything else, I decided yesterday to go into town early and heed a powerful recommendation from somebody whose judgement I trust.

    ‘You’d love it,’ she had said!

    And besides, Monday is a cheap ticket day at Jakarta cinemas.

    So into Plaza Indonesia I wandered, and paid Rp.50,000 ( AUD $5) and soon found myself one of less than half a dozen people seated in the very comfortable cinema on the 6th floor of the fancy mall.

    Dunkirk is one of the best movies I’ve seen in AGES!

    I’m no expert in cinematography, but the filming of the aerial battle, as brave RAF pilots ( family connection for me there! ) endeavoured to save the British ships from German attack was captivating.

    And the human stories, especially that of a father and son and their young friend on one little pleasure boat…

    …engaged in the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of soldiers from a previously little-known town on the French shore, were moving beyond words.

    Not least the final scenes, the British people’s heart-warming welcome to the rescued, some of whom had feared that they’d be ‘spat on in the streets’ for their failure to hold on in France…

    True Brits!


    Cheered by crowds along the railway line!

    Such a stark contrast to the prosecutions launched against splendid members of the UK armed services who shot our enemies in Ulster, and to the insults heaped on America’s Vietnam heroes on their return, after their betrayal by the college creeps and rotten media.

    Yes, of course, the patriotism was a key part of its appeal for me, such a treat to have a ‘war movie’ untainted by the cess-pool politics of modern Hollywood’s ruling class!

    But even just as a straightforward drama, from anyone’s perspective, it’s great.

    Go see it!

      I will go and watch this film, Ross. You make it sound very exciting.
      I remember how you were good at teaching English but also many history stories .

      We went to see it at Gandaria last week. A first-class film but our little group had the theater almost to ourselves.
      I hope your ‘review’ has more people go before it ‘s replaced by one of those stupid giant robot movies!

      Tomorrow I will tell you if I enjoy Dunkirk.

      I have just now come from the cinema and I saw Dunkirk.
      You are so true about this film, Ross.
      I do not know the story before but it was very spesial and interesting.
      I was sad when it was finished but also happy too.
      I understand why the British people must love to watch it.

    Admiration of the Nation, and Europe – U.S. Heroes Subdue Train Terror Swine! 


    All praise and honour to the brave Americans (reportedly United States Marines) on that high-speed train who managed to overcome a terrorist with a Kalashnikov who was hell-bent on murder.

    These smart young guys heard the satanic savage loading his gun in the rest-room, so we’re told, and their military training led them quickly to identify the sound and confront the blood-thirty fiend.

    One’s only regret is that they didn’t kill him.

    But then the nauseating shrills from the half-wit ‘human rights’ lobbies would have been up in arms. The heroes would probably have been detained for interrogation, or worse!

    If anyone should be detained for culpability in this matter, it’s the European politicians who refuse to institute proper punishment for terrorist swine who abuse their countries’ hospitality.

    How many jihadists, salafists, sectarian scum of every sort, are getting free board and lodging at immense expense to tax-payers across the Continent and the British Isles, instead of the death penalty they so richly deserve?

    • Though media reports say that, so far, the seriously injured victims are only that – injured, not dead – there’s no excuse for not stringing up the SOB who carried out this outrage. He was, so the media admit, ‘known’ to French intelligence, for association with evil sectarian causes, so should have long since been detained and deported, back to Morocco, whence the scumbag allegedly came to Europe.

    Why was he ever allowed into Holland, or France?

    European countries should only admit aliens who bring some obvious advantage to their society. People who adhere to sectarian ideologies bring nothing but poison into the body politic of the civilised world.

    • Their creed requires them to put their ideology above allegiance to France, or Holland, or ANY country, even Morocco! Such treasonous vermin are beyond the pale.

    Kick them out.

    And if they’re caught in the act of violence, hang them!
