THE YOUNG AND PRODIGIOUS T.S. SPIVET is a film I saw back at the Sydney Film Festival. It is a film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, one of my favourite directors who has brought the world DELICATESSEN, THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN and AMÉLIE. He is a master of the visual and quirky and this film was going to be in glorious 3D at the grand theatre at the Cremorne Orpheum, we even got the organist in white tails :)...Read More
Cyclone Tracy was and still is one of the greatest disasters to hit our wee Australian shores, it was an epic tragedy that flattened Darwin, the worst part, it all happened on Christmas eve, way back in 1974. It is about to have its 40th anniversary and in perfect timing author Sophie Cunningham has recently (July) released this brilliant book...Read More
JOHN WICK – the action film starring Keanu the world has needed since THE MATRIX. He has always been one of my favourite action guys since SPEED and POINT BREAK – at college he was all over my folder and I even had a framed pic of him on my wall and still have his autograph on a picture from POINT BREAK.

WILLIAM KELLY’S WAR looks like a low budget, independent family made film, surprisingly it actually is, and Kernel Jack, the war reviewer for Salty, attended the screening and actually enjoyed it...
D-DAY 3D NORMANDY 1944 is an education IMAX wonder now playing in most IMAXs – definitely in Sydney. Being an IMAX film it only runs for 45mins, it is free from exemption and has won a bag-load of GSCA Awards. It has been best described as a “family friendly spectacle” that “keeps adults in the game while making it especially attractive and useful for kids...

Chadwick Boseman heads up this amazing star filled cast in the biopic of one of the funkiest people to ever be born in the world, James Brown. The man was/still is a legend of epic proportions...Read More
THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU is one impressive ensemble cast film. Just read the top of that poster!! I am going to see it purely because I love Jane Fonda and Tina Fey, I am also very curious to watch Adam Driver (the guy on the far right on the poster) – he is the lead in the upcoming Star Wars film, I am thinking he is a Sith Lord, evil mofo, but we will have to wait and see...Read More
