US & AUSSIE EXPLOITATION CINEMA forum has been also added...I know Australia is far away from USA :D but I guess I could put them together!

As MOVIE REVIEWS room is past and reviews moved to other sections, Jared is now a co-moderator to the ASIAN forum and ajji a co-moderator to EURO and US forums!

Bad move! :lol: Firstly, Australia is located in Asia and thus belongs in the Asian section (I do realise they've got more in common with other Anglo countries though, film-wise), secondly Australians are not Americans (an old Australian 50s slang term for Americans is 'septics' (i.e. septic tank = full of... )). And where do you put New Zealand films??? Or Canadian films? I think you at least could call the section "North America + the Commonwealth countries" (or if you wanted to make a fun title you could call it "UK + the old colonies" :lol: ). Or simply "English speaking world section".

But I think you're right about it...They don't fix together. I'll leave it for US & Canada at the moment and I will add a seperate forum for Australia and New Zealand later.

NORTH AMERICA EXPLOITATION CINEMA then!

Actually... yes it is. It's in the Asian region.

A section for OZ + NZ. Cool. So films from the UK + Ireland; is that just in the Euro section?

I thought it was called Oceania :)

But I know what you mean, it's so close to Indonesia...When it comes to world cup in soccer they play all togetrher as Oceania/Asia group of countries.

My idea was that Ausssie films are not similar with Asian...

I guess they belong to their own section. I will leave it for later.

Of course LATIN AMERICAN, AFRICAN & ARABIC films are also completely different territories but I join them because of the few posts about them so far. I suppose I have to seperate them later. But I need them to exist as films from Egypt, Nigera etc are almost unknown -but interesting!- and they deserve their own place even now...

You're right; film-wise Australian films aren't "Asian". I was talking about where they're actually located and politically. There's a bit of water between them and the rest of Asia but they are certainly "in the region". And in regards to neighbouring countries they're a member of the ASEAN (kinda like the EU, just for Asian countries).

Maybe you should change it all so we only have two sections: "good films" & "bad films" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Cool idea :D

I didn't know about the ASEAN thing, I guess you're better informed than me!

And it seems we're the only ones here tonight...

Actually you're on your own now, Miltos. I just received RAMBO 4 on DVD today so I'm off to watch that. :D
Have a nice evening.
