The Pallid Earth
Product Description

William is eight-years-old when his father is killed in a farming accident and he is invited, along with his psychologically fragile mother, to live with his great-uncle John McIvor at the decaying homestead of Kuran House. The property is the original station of the Darling Downs and the imminent Native Title Act is of great concern to the local landowners. McIvor, a hard and driven man, is organising a rally against the Act, whilst at the same time testing William as a potential heir of Kuran House. His mother is desperate for the security and wealth she has never had, and the pressures on Will from his mother and uncle are unrelenting. As the past and present of Kuran Station unravel and merge, the price of that inheritance may prove to be the downfall of them all.

The last of the Mad Max Trilogy, the film starts 15 years after the defeat of Lord Humungus and his Vermins, Max no longer have a car to travel around the Australian wasteland, and so he have a caravan with camels to go around. After his caravan was stolen by a familiar-looking pilot, he travels to a nearby community called Bartertown. He went there only to take back what's his, ended up being involved in a power struggle between ruler of Bartertown, Aunty Entity and her main power supplier, and facing what might be the franchise's worst nightmare: LOTS OF CHILDREN. In the beginning with the scene of Bartertown, the concept of civilization returning after the end of the world is actually pretty neat when you look back. Mad Max starts with society breakdown, Mad Max 2 starts with civilization being non-existant, and Max Max 3 starts with society returned to build communities. For reasons unknown, in this film Australia was implied to be nuked, which is odd since the continent is mostly implied to be wiped out by bombs instead of nukes in the last movie. Of course, this review wouldn't be a review without mentioning one of Australia's famous national pastime, the Thunderdome. Unsurprisingly, the Thunderdome match turned out to be one of the movie's best feature. I mean, who doesn't want to be strapped under the Thunderdome while jumping around the arena and fight. But then, came the dreadful children. After the movie's first half, Max winds up being taken care by tribal children and teenagers, whom repeatedly mistaken him as the Flight Captain Walker who would take them back to "Tomorrow-morrow Land". After Max told them that he's no Captain Walker, it created a conflict and split the childrens between those who wishes to return to "Tomorrow-morrow Land", and those who are satisfied with living in caves. Okay, the children wasn't really THAT dreadful, but their presence in a Mad Max film wasn't exactly pleasant to endured with. With them kids around, it turned a gritty Mad Max film into a painfully silly and campy children film set in a post-apocalyptic world. The children scenes just don't seem to fit with the rest of the film, which is quite a shame as the children performances were pretty darn good, and their section did have one the.
