Australia : The Movie

I must admit that a tremour passed through my bowels when I heard Baz Lurmann had decided to give his upcoming movie the title Australia. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Strictly Ballroom and the speed driven version of Romeo and Juliet though I thing the Baz approach was starting to wear thin on me... Sign in to see full entry.

Quantum of Solace

I really enjoyed Daniel Craig's first attempt at James Bond. It had a gritty solid intensity with a somewhat darker edge and the added complication of significant emotional entanglement for Bond. Consequently I've been looking forward to Quantum of Solace for some time. This movie is OK but it falls... Sign in to see full entry.

Lars and the Real Girl

It's been ages since I've posted a review! And here I am with a review of a most quirky film, now out on DVD, involving a shy man and what might euphemistically be referred to as an artificial woman. It sounds bizzare and potentially kinky but it's actually an incredibly moving film about the power... Sign in to see full entry.

The Incredible Hulk

I went along to this film with a certain trepidation. It wasn't because I had a fear of the monstrous green marauder smashing through the screen and reaping havoc throughout the land. When it comes to chaos I currently say.. bring it on baby! I was trepidatious that I'd be beaten over the head with... Sign in to see full entry.

Indiana Jones

It's been a long time since I've posted a review! I saw the mose recent instalment of Indiana Jones a couple of weeks ago and I figure now's the time to say something about it. Indy has always been the principle fictional indivdual, in the vast arena of cinematic characters, with whom I associate a... Sign in to see full entry.

U2 : 3D

Last night I went along to the local Sydney Imax to see the 3 dimensional recreation of a u2 concert. It was well worth paying $25 to enjoy this visually amazing experience with the extra benefits of the enormous Imax screen and excellent surround sound. There's no turning back for concert films...

Juno

Juno is officially my favourite movie so far this year. I have no criticisms of this movie. It has a quirky funny script, intriguingly developed characters, a brilliantly chosen soundtrack and a great cast. Ellen Page is in the lead role as a fiesty, left of centre, pregnant sixteen year old. She... Sign in to see full entry.

3:10 to Yuma

3:10 TO YUMA is a recently released western starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale. Bale is a debt ridden, struggling farmer and Crowe is the somewhat charming, somewhat brutal outlaw. This film struck me as an old school style western with just a touch of a more contemporary emphasis on... Sign in to see full entry.

No Country for Old Men

No Country for Old Men is the latest release of the Coen Brothers and stars Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin. This film has been critically acclaimed. It's won Golden Globes and is up for Academy Award nomimations. Having written all that I've taken some time in getting around to... Sign in to see full entry.

Charlie Wilson's War

The first thing I should acknowledge in this review is that I'm a huge fan of the script writer Aaron Sorkin (the creator of the West Wing series). He creates hugely entertaining characters through intelligent rapid fire dialogue. Sorkin is given the opportunity to apply his talent to a factual... Sign in to see full entry.
