3.15 kg! that's a bit pushing it
You could push it but you're better off carrying it on your back,
Désolé, couldn't resist .
When you're used to military packs, 3 kgs isn't so bad.
Just started streaming, cheers for the link biker. The opening scenes remind me of the "Saigon, **** still in Saigon" bit from Apocalypse now.
Think I'll be looking to add a crossfire to my little collection next pay day, thanks guys.
Popped in to read a bit of whats going on. Now watching 'The Hunter'!
At 3.15 in the afternoon???! What decadance!
Check out the link in my posting above. I visit that site regularly to view new films etc. Worth it, it's free.
I just watched the film..cheers for the link.
Absolutely stunning scenery and spectacular filming. Willem Dafoe was very good, in a role that gave him very little substance... but I think the director lost what little plot there was somewhere along the line. It just left lots of unanswered questions and was full of clichés.
With the quality of the actors, Sam Niell's a good ol' actor too... and the fantastic setting they could have made so much more of this film.
Oh yes cool pack.
I have to admit to be a near complete retard when it comes to anything technological. I tried snuffling around for the DVD of the film only to discover that it hasn't been released yet - doh! So, how do I get hold of it? The easier and simpler it is, the more likely I am to be successful, so any advice about how and where to get it/download it does need to be phrased as though for an utter moron.
Any help is most gratefully received...
TO WATCH THE ..THE HUNTER,................TRY THIS
CLICK ON THE ARROW ON THE RIGHT ( to play )
I've emailed them for postage costs to NZ....
Looks tacticool doesn't it, but heavy compared to the regular ospreys, granitegears and what have you. I wonder how he managed to fit gear for at least a week's self-sustained rambling in his pack ... maybe he learned from watching "Bear Grylls" - ie got his food delivered. No sleeping pad strapped to the outside of the pack even, so I guess he must have had a neoair inside there to sleep on in his vaude powerlizard bivy/tent.
I enjoyed the film and agree with garethw, it could have been much better, and I think it should also have been longer.
Me too Gareth, I found it really dull and like you say lots of questions, maybe in line for 2/3/and four. I hope not.
I've tried it at work without success. I'll try it at home and, failing that, I'll just wait until it comes to the cinema or gets put on DVD. Seems as though there are one or two rumblings of discontent about it... but I still want to see it. Thank you for trying to get me hitched on to it - I have been confounded by my Mac at work!
The link above will take you to a sort of tablulated page with all sorts of ticks and boxes, ignore those just look at the box in the centre at the top of the graph with shows a number countdown then changes to Continues as free user, that opens up another page with screen of the film then you just press the ">" type play button. There's also a pop up screen that appears but I close that before it fully loads as it's just junk.
If you hover your mouse in the bottom right of the screen there's an option to make your viewing window as big as your monitor is, saves you looking at the distracting web browser frame etc. To get out of that screen just press Esc (found on the top left of your keyboard.)
Hope this helps Tiley.
I'm using Windows XP so I don't know if these instructions will be the same on a Mac.
Top tip: avoid clicking on the tempting "Click here to see it in HD" and such. 9 times out of 10 simply hitting the play arrow will get you to the film. One thing i do do is let the film start and then pause it from playing allowing the film to download a bit, you see a sort of status bar along the bottom edge of the screen. let that creep over a bit to the right and then hit play again to run the film.
The link I posted above will take you to "the hub" website or home directory where you can browse through hundreds of DVDs uploaded to the internet by others. I watched Captain America before Christmas and X-Men first class way back in October.. then saw it on the cinema on the ferry on the way back to France.
The place looks intimidating but following your nose does sorta open pathways to films. My daughter, Liliana, put me onto the site and said the best versions can be found on Putlocker and Sockshare. Hope this helps.
It certainly has - to a point! As you suggested, after about 10 minutes, I paused the film to let it load up or whatever. I returned to it a couple of hours later and it keeps grinding to a halt after about 15 minutes, just as our Willem is about to plunge off into the wilds. I'll keep trying and see what happens! Many thanks anyway for your patience and help.
Go to the website http://www.1channel.ch/ and find the film and try another version uploaded by someone else, the directions I posted above should be sufficent to work, it's not that diffuicult to muddle thorugh. Anyway it could just be that version that hangs. Could also be the speed of your internet connection and the spec of your PC that makes it run slow. Leaving it for 2 hours is a bit drastic though, I let mine pause for about 5 mins and then let it run and the red bar stays just behind the grey area as it streams.
For those like Tiley who have problems watching the film, there is a free plugin for Firefox called DownLoadHelper... google it and install it. Basically it lets you capture any streaming video to your hard drive, be it Youtube, Daily Motion etc.. and the site Biker linked to.
Once the film is on your desktop you can watch it without it stopping all the time.
All he needs is a .223 easily available in OZ (the real issue is whether he would get a firearms licence for a state forest or NP).
As for defence, there's nothing that requires a rifle except the drop bears and then the calibre doesn't matter since he'd be a goner anyway.
You are forgetting he is a mercenary with other targets and things to defend against.
True. I forget he is an American and one must be prepared like Robert Ruark wrote "Use Enough Gun". ;-)
