The Longest Way #

Released 11/12/2008

Description: The Longest Way, a travel blog I kept during my attempt to walk home from Beijing to Germany. It’s a cute comprehensive site: I chronicled what was event on the street for a entire year from 2007 to 2008, and for two more months in 2010 and 2012 respectively. The fresh section of the walk that started in the summer of 2016 is also in there! In total, the website has accumulated more than 600 posts, all of which are in English, and most of which are about walking. There are maps, images and videos to accompany the posts, and for most walking days I would pick a song that I thought was worth listening to on that day. If you read it all, you will receive a cute nice impression of what it was like to walk through Northern China in the Olympic year and the years after, and through Central Asia this year.

The Forest Commandos Reviews:

This Warner Brothers short topics about Canadian bush pilots and their work in safeguarding Canada's forests -- mostly vs the spruce bud worm and fire -- has a narration voiced by Knox Manning is a rather over-the-top manner.It will remind the viewer of a lot of these travelogues of the James Fitzpatrick series from MGM, although the black and white photography and the variability of the shots will later strike the audience. Clearly, its clips are sourced from a tons of sources, some carefully composed -- particularly the portrait shots, which usually present their topics gazing nobly past the upper left corner of the frame -- and others showing that they are multi-generational copies by their overly contrasted appearance.Still, it's certainly informative and a reasonable example of a robust and long-lasting genre.


The Forest Commandos (1946) ** (out of 4) This Warner short was apparently released in Technicolor but all of those prints have been lost or destroyed so all that remains is a B&W version, which is what recently aired on Turner Classic Movies. At just over 20-minutes, this documentary takes a look at the Ontario group of forest rangers as well as the bush pilots that support them whenever fires break out. What we basically receive is a tour of the forest zone as well as a detailed description of what these boys do every and everyday. We go on an inspection with the ranger as he informs a camper that he can't have a fire going in the woods and shows him a safer method to have one. Once a fire does break out we receive to see the bush pilots who take off to test and hold it under control. This two-reeler might offer quite a bit of notification but I found the majority of it to be rather bland. There are method too many moments where we see the satisfied leader walking around the woods showing us the "right" method to do things and it was just a tad bit too preachy for me. I also think it hurts that we're constantly cutting back and forth between current footage shot for this and stock footage. It makes the movie seem quite uneven going between the two so much. I'm sure fanatics who have to watch each short out there (like me) could receive some mild entertainment from it but others could just avoid.
