You're about to experience an incredible journey of self-discovery, heart-warming hi-jinks, and an hilarious look at child neglect.

:lol:

I love Taika.

I so want to see this movie, dammit.

Oh, I just have to quickly say, I got to see Fat Freddy's Drop (again) at the Byron Bay Bluesfest a few days ago (SO awesome!), and quite randomly Dallas Tamaira (the lead singer) at one point said "you wanna see some Michael Jackson?" exactly like Boy says it in the movie, and then had a chuckle to himself :shock: :lol:

It was quite strange since the movie hasn't come out here yet, and I strongly doubt there's even been previews showing. So it would have gone over the heads of 99.9% of the audience. My friend leaned in to me, pointed to one of the band members and said "is he the one s'posed to be doing Michael Jackson?"
It's all about the music.

AHA! That's the intro clip we were shown before the actual film when I went to the special advance screening of BOY a wee while back. I'm so glad it found it's way online cos we all laughed our asses off at the time. Would've rather had Taika himself there of course, but... :dunno:

(Oh that bit about Gloss being the best we could come up with? It's a reference to an NZ made 80's TV show called Gloss - a soap set in the offices of a fashion magazine of the same name. It was wildly popular but also truly awful - and even more so remembering it now!)

Thanks for posting this! :D

From FB:

Hi friends, this is a deleted scene from my movie, BOY. It is a great scene about famous Maori heroes, with fantastic acting by the kids. However, I killed the scene because there was a corn leaf out of place in one of the shots. Enjoy!!! Or don't!!!


That was 8)

Oh and btw, I think the fact that he said CORN leaf is a bit of an overt clue as to what Bret is singing..........................................................
:wink: :lol:

I caught about 1/4 of what those kids were saying the first time. :oops: I watched it a couple of times and I think I've got most of it now. I've never had any problems understanding a Kiwi accent, but I may have to watch this movie with subtitles on.

I liked how they thought Michael Jackson had to be Maori.

I need to see this movie yesterday.

From Taika's twitter:
After just 4 weeks NZ film BOY has become The #1 NZ comedy of all time! Thanks New Zealand, that's not too shabby at all.

:yay:
It's all about the music.

I can't WAIT for this to be released overseas so I can hear what all of you think of it! I think I'm gonna go see it again this weekend - the first time I saw it was a free screening so I feel I should go again to contribute my $$ to the total! Plus, it IS a great wee film I wouldn't mind seeing again :D
