I remember that. I told you it was based on a Stephen King story. He writes some pretty amazing stuff outside his usual box.

Kylie, interesting you didn't catch my watching Unihabited. It was forgettable for sure, but it was an Australian movie. Maybe I was mistaken thinking Australians keep up with Australian movies.
I was curious if people really took holidays like that.

Yesterday we lounged around all day long and watched a couple of football games and some movies. We watched 'Skyfall', the James Bond movie, and also watched 'Promised Land', Matt Damon's new film. Both were so so....

Pac, I have not heard of that one...will have a look though!

Personally I dont keep up with the Aussie movies...some are really good, others are average...I like English and American films better

Just been to look...never heard of any of the actors...looks like a low budget film!

There certainly are a few far better Aussie films for sure!

Low budget for sure.
So can people do that? Get dropped off on an uninhabited island in the Reef with supplies and a satellite phone for a private holiday? I can just imagine the big stink there would be in the states about doing that here.
