A true story apparently, quite good, but a little too much delirium for me Smile

Ah Harry Potter Dennis.
But where is the token black?
Where is the feisty woman wearing the low cut dress?
Er, the movie should be good.

I liked Sands of the Kalahari.

Good cast, Believable. 
Lots of survival . . . 
And at the end, the villain fights the alpha baboon, which might give him the pick of the female baboons - some of them quite good looking.
I will not spoil it by revealing who won.

I don't know this anime, but thought the scene was funny.

What I meant was that I don't know anything about the anime with the girls and the grenade.  I'm pretty sure it is a comedy and that they did not die.

The first clip was from "Gate," one of the animes that I mentioned.

Here's a video, probably a compilation of clips with a Sabaton song as the soundtrack, of another anime called "Girls und Panzer."  I have not seen the anime, but from what I read it takes place in the future where a high school competitive sport is combat with 20th Century tanks.

I do not know what it is about but quite entertaining for a cartoon Benjamin.

Yes there was something I wanted to ask Deerstalker.
The movie ends with the villain being marooned on an oasis in the Kalahari desert.
He wins the fight with the alpha baboon.
Deerstalker, as I know you to be a true survivalist, in this situation, would you marry a baboon?
Considering there is nothing else would that be the sensible thing to do Deerstalker?
Any other members reading are welcome to give there choice also?


PS: If the villain was a Mormon he could marry six baboons.

You travel Pete, can you confirm if this is true?


Did you know on the Canary Islands there is not one canary?
Same thing in the Virgin Islands - not one canary there either.
