Sheena / Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. 1984. HD.
 Sheena, also known as Sheena: Queen of the Jungle, is a 1984 fantasy-adventure film based on a comic-book character that first appeared in the late 1930s, Sheena, Queen of the Jungle.
A hybrid of action-adventure and soap opera–style drama, Sheena was shot on location in Kenya. It tells the tale of a female version of Tarzan who was raised in the fictional African country of Tigora by the equally fictional Zambouli tribe.
The film starred Tanya Roberts, Ted Wass, and Trevor Thomas. It was directed by John Guillermin and written by Lorenzo Semple, Jr., who had previously collaborated on the 1976 remake of King Kong.
Released by Columbia Pictures on August 17, 1984, Sheena bombed in theaters and was nominated for five Golden Raspberry Awards including Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Tanya Roberts), Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst Musical Score, but it reportedly did find some cult success on home video and DVD.
Sheena's white parents are killed while on Safari. She is raised by the mystical witch woman of an African tribe. When her foster mother is framed for the murder of a political leader, Sheena and a newsman, Vic Casey are forced to flee while pursued by the mercenaries hired by the real killer, who hopes to assume power. Sheena's ability to talk to the animals and knowledge of jungle lore give them a chance against the high tech weapons of the mercenaries.
Director: John Guillermin.
Cast: Tanya Roberts, Ted Wass, Donovan Scott, Elizabeth of Toro, France Zobda, Trevor Thomas, Clifton Jones, John Forgeham, Errol John, Sylvester Williams, Michael Shannon.

Outcast of the Islands. 1951.

Outcast of the Islands. 1951.
 Outcast of the Islands is a 1951 film directed by Carol Reed based on Joseph Conrad's novel An Outcast of the Islands. The film features Robert Morley, Trevor Howard, Ralph Richardson, and Wendy Hiller.
Peter Willems (Trevor Howard), a selfish and ambitious man, is accused of stealing in his position as manager of a shipping port operation near Singapore. After he is dismissed for his misconduct he reacquaints himself with the trading ship Capt. Lingard (Ralph Richardson) who befriended him as a 12-year-old boy. Lingard agrees to help Willems regain his reputation by taking him to a trading village located up a difficult-to-navigate channel near the coast of Batam. Lingard's son-in-law, Elmer Almeyer (Robert Morley), operates a trading operation for Capt. Lingard in the village. Lingard asks Almeyer to take Willems under his wing and teach him the business. While Lingard is away on one of his sea trips, Willems abuses his trust, seduces the village chieftain's daughter Aissa (Kerima), attempts to steal Almeyer's business operation, humiliates Almeyer before the villagers, and shares the navigation secrets of the channel with an Arab trader who competes with Capt. Lingard. Lingard returns to discover the mess Willems has made and confronts Willems — who has now been condemned by the villagers because of the shame he brought to the frail and dying chieftain. He abandons Willems to live in isolation and exile.
Director: Carol Reed.
Cast: Ralph Richardson, Trevor Howard, Robert Morley, Wendy Hiller, Kerima, George Coulouris, Tamine, Wilfrid Hyde-White, Peter Illing, Betty Ann Davies, Marne Maitland, James Kenney.

Pippi Långstrump / Pippi Longstocking. 1969. The best episodes.
 SE. Pippi Långstrump är en svensk TV-serie från 1969 i 21 delar, baserad på Astrid Lindgrens barnböcker om Pippi Långstrump. Det var till största delen inspelad i och nära Visby och med barnskådespelarna Inger Nilsson ("Pippi"), Maria Persson ("Annika") och Pär Sundberg ("Tommy") i de centrala rollerna. På grund av svensk-tysk samproduktion deltog ett antal tyska skådespelare, vars röster dubbades till svenska i den svenska visningen.
1973 presenterades en omklippt version av TV-materialet som långfilmen Här kommer Pippi Långstrump. 1970 års Pippi Långstrump på de sju haven är dock en separat produktion med i stort sett samma skådespelare.
Pippi Långstrump bor ensam i Villa Villekulla eftersom hennes mamma är ängel i himmelen och hennes pappa kung på en Söderhavsö. Syskonen Tommy och Annika blir hennes vänner och de 21 olika TV-avsnitten handlar om deras äventyr ihop.
EN. Pippi Longstocking (Swedish: Pippi Långstrump) is a Swedish TV series based on Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking children's books. The show ran for 21 episodes, the first episode being broadcast 8 February 1969 on Sveriges Television.
The series' theme song, "Here Comes Pippi Longstocking" ("Här Kommer Pippi Långstrump") was composed by Jan Johansson (in one of his last works, before his death a year before the series aired), with lyrics by Astrid Lindgren. The song was sung by series star Inger Nilsson.
A mysterious young girl, Pippi Longstocking, moves into the abandoned Villa Villekulla. The redheaded Pippi, living alone but for a monkey called Mr. Nilsson and her horse Little Old Man, befriends two neighboring children, Tommy and Annika. Soon inseparable companions, the three youngsters embark upon a series of colorful escapades, which turn the small Swedish town upside down. Local busybody Miss Prysselius schemes to have Pippi put into a children's home, and sets the town's bumbling cops Kling and Klang on her with riotous results!

Der Baader Meinhof Komplex / The Baader Meinhof Complex. 2008. HD.
DE. Der Baader Meinhof Komplex ist ein Politdrama von Uli Edel mit Martina Gedeck, Moritz Bleibtreu und Johanna Wokalek.
In dem historischen deutschen Drama Der Baader Meinhof Komplex werden Geschichte und Hintergründe der linksradikalen Organisation RAF nachgezeichnet.
In den Jahren 1967 bis 1977 entsteht die linksradikale Organisation Rote-Armee-Fraktion (RAF), die von Andreas Baader (Moritz Bleibtreu), der Journalistin Ulrike Meinhof (Martina Gedeck) und Gudrun Ensslin (Johanna Wokalek) gegründet wird. Sie sind als Kinder der Nazi-Generation für jegliche Art von Faschismus sensibilisiert und sehen diese in der nordamerikanischen Außenpolitik, die von der deutschen Gesellschaft unterstützt wird. Doch ihre Kampagnen nehmen schnell terroristische Züge an und hinterlassen Opfer.
Vorsitzender des Bundeskriminalamtes Horst Herold (Bruno Ganz) versucht die Beweggründe der Organisation zu verstehen, kann diese jedoch nicht mit seinem Verständnis von Gerechtigkeit vereinen und sieht sich gezwungen, die Gewaltausschreitungen zu beenden. Es gelingt ihm, mehreren RAF-Anhängern auf die Schliche zu kommen. Doch wird ihm langsam klar, dass die Polizei allein nicht die Kraft besitzt, die Anti-Terror-Mission zu stemmen.
EN. The Baader Meinhof Complex (German: Der Baader Meinhof Komplex) is a 2008 German film by Uli Edel in his first non-TV directorial project since 2000's The Little Vampire. Written and produced by Bernd Eichinger, it stars Moritz Bleibtreu, Martina Gedeck, and Johanna Wokalek. The film is based on the 1985 German best selling non-fiction book of the same name by Stefan Aust. It retells the story of the early years of the West German far-left terrorist organisation the Rote Armee Fraktion (Red Army Fraction, or Red Army Faction, a.k.a. RAF) from 1967 to 1977.
The film was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 81st Academy Awards. It was also nominated for the Golden Globe in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
Germany in the 1970s: Murderous bomb attacks, the threat of terrorism and the fear of the enemy inside are rocking the very foundations of the yet fragile German democracy. The radicalised children of the Nazi generation lead by Andreas Baader, Ulrike Meinhof and Gudrun Ensslin are fighting a violent war against what they perceive as the new face of fascism: American imperialism supported by the German establishment, many of whom have a Nazi past. Their aim is to create a more human society but by employing inhuman means they not only spread terror and bloodshed, they also lose their own humanity. The man who understands them is also their hunter: the head of the German police force Horst Herold. And while he succeeds in his relentless pursuit of the young terrorists, he knows he's only dealing with the tip of the iceberg.
Director: Uli Edel.

The Shiralee. 1957.

The Shiralee. 1957.
 The Shiralee is a 1957 British film in the Australian Western genre. It was made by Ealing Studios, starring Peter Finch, directed by Leslie Norman and based on the novel by D'Arcy Niland. Although all exterior scenes were filmed in Sydney, Scone and Binnaway, New South Wales and Australian actors Charles Tingwell, Bill Kerr and Ed Devereaux played in supporting roles, the film is really a British film made in Australia, rather than an Australian film.
An itinerant rural worker named Macauley —sometimes described as a "swagman" or "swaggie"—suddenly finds himself taking responsibility for his child. In their time together in the barren landscapes of the outback, father and daughter bond. The child is the "shiralee", an Irish or Aboriginal word meaning "swag", or metaphorically, a "burden."
Having returned to Sydney from "walkabout", he finds his wife living with another man. He beats up the man and takes his daughter, Buster, with him. Macauley tries to get a job with a previous employer, Parker, but he angrily tells Macauley to go away, saying he had left his daughter Lily pregnant. Macauley tries to leave Buster with some friends of his, but she runs after him and he relents. Macauley narrowly prevents his wife making off with Buster, but after Buster is hit by a car and badly injured, he finds out that his wife is divorcing him and trying to gain legal custody of Buster. He returns to Sydney to fight it, leading to a violent confrontation with his wife's new lover.
Director: Leslie Norman.
Cast: Peter Finch, Dana Wilson, Elizabeth Sellars, George Rose, Rosemary Harris, Russell Napier, Niall MacGinnis, Tessie O'Shea, Sidney James, Charles 'Bud' Tingwell, Reg Lye.
