Garden State and I Love Huckabees (DVD)

I know it's been a while since I've done a film review but I'm glad to say that I come to you bearing brief but good news. There are two new DVDs that are quirky, fun, insightful, tender and left of centre and I recommend them whole-heartedly. I Love Huckabees is a quirky philosophocial/metaphysical...

the new star wars movie (recent release)

Yes reader I did finally get around to seeing this film last weekend. It surprised me somewhat. I enjoyed it. That floppy eared buffoon creature was kept in the background, there were wild wookies and the whole decline of the main character actually managed to generate some sense of real tragedy by...

Star Wars Prequels vs. Casablanca

I don't know how many times I've watched this movie but it never loses its magic. I want to be Humphry Bogart speaking those classic lines: "the Germans wore grey, you wore blue!" "here's looking at you kid" Today's dull arsed and barely literate film makers ought to take a look at films like this... Sign in to see full entry.

Gallipoli (DVD)

There are certain books and movies which find an ongoing place in life. They’re the movies that have been viewed so many times that the dialogue and scenes are deeply impressed into the memory and yet, no matter how well known they are, they always retain a certain vitality and significance....

Three Dollars (the movie)

I went to see the movie Three Dollars soon after I’d finished the book. I was reasonably confident that the film adaptation would be acceptable, particularly as David Wenham was playing the lead role ( I can’t think of another actor who could have been more appropriate). People outside Australia may... Sign in to see full entry.

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (New release)

I remember watching the television show of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy as a kid. The great thing about the show was its quirky and unpredictable nature. Apparently the book is an even greater pleasure which I am yet to experience. The television show was a meander through the maze of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Three Dollars (The Book rather than the Movie)

It all began with an opinion piece in the Sydney Morning Herald a couple of weeks ago. The article was about the experience of educated people being underemployed and there were references in the novel to the novel Generation X and an Australian novel, now made into a movie, called Three Dollars....

bad santa

I wanted to start this review with a small statement about my childhood. When I was in grade two I overheard a couple of kids in the playground saying that Santa didn't exist. Those fools, I thought to myself, they just don't know what they're talking about. I went home to share the nonsense that... Sign in to see full entry.

the life and death of peter sellers (dvd)

This movie is more disturbing than Jack Nicholson in the shining and I am being quite serious on that point. The first point I'd like to make is that good old Rushy has done Australia proud in his recreation of Peter Sellers. It reminds me of the many times old psycho Pete came around to my place...

australian reality tv

I hate the unreal contrivances of reality television and I don’t make a habit of watching such shows but, for some reason, My Restaurant Rules continues to be an exception. Now I’m not sure if this is an internationally franchised show so let me explain the basic premise: couples are given a limited... Sign in to see full entry.
