PARTISAN | REVIEW

PARTISAN MOVIE IMAGE

PARTISAN is a movie I have been keen to see ever since they released the first image and announced production. The cinematography just looks out of this world, plus Vincent Cassel, you just gotta love the guy. It is dark, it is gritty, and you would never imagine it, it is Australian. I could not make this one due to commitments, shakes head at disaster premiere for Mad Max, so Kernel Blake hit this one up...

WOMAN IN GOLD | REVIEW

WOMAN IN GOLD MOVIE IMAGE

I will get it out there – I worship everything Helen Mirren, I bloody love her, she is a goddess and like Meryl, Dench, Winslett, Leo and Zac, can do no wrong. I will buy tickets to see Mirren read ingredients lists on cake packets and it is my goal in life to see her as the first female Doctor Who. So you could say I was a little excited to be seeing WOMAN IN GOLD. It was a delightful evening with huge thanks to Roadshow Films who threw a soiree...

WILD TALES | REVIEW

WILD TALES THE WEDDING SHORT IMAGE

This was a movie I needed last week, I was in financial stress, housing stress, having a bad week at work, had just been fined $243 for parking and had about $20 left to my name to make it through the week. I was a little down and honestly thought the world could go and f**k itself. I went to this movie with no knowledge about it what-so-ever and my god, it was one of the best decisions I have made in a while...

THE DEFENCE | STEVE CAVANAGH | BOOK REVIEW

STEVE CAVANAGH AUTHOR AND BOOK IMAGE

Think Michael Bay partnering with John Grisham and then they got some advice from Scorcese, ignored most of it, then penned a book about a lawyer. Now you pretty much have Steve Cavanagh’s book, THE DEFENCE, right there. Expect lots of action, put all forms of credible belief on hold and enjoy the crazy ride. THE DEFENCE is the debut novel from Steve Cavanagh and Kernel Fiona reviews this page turner sent to us from the folks at Hachette Austra...

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD | REVIEW

MAD MAX FURY ROAD IMMORTAL JOE IMAGE

Thirty years following the campy MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDERDOME Max is back with a technically advanced George Miller in the conductor’s seat again. MAD MAX FURY ROAD is the fourth film in this high octane franchise and this one basically removes dialogue, mundane plot and personality and gives the action a shot of crack – it should be more CIRQUE DE SOLMAX ON CRACK...

LILTING is still currently one of my favourite movies of 2015, I managed to see it at the Queer Screen Mardi Gras Film Festival earlier in the year and it blew me away, so powerful and cultural and starring one of my favourite actors on the planet, Ben Whishaw.

HUMPBACK WHALES 3D | REVIEW

humpback whales 3d movie image

Incredibly bad JK – completely forgot about posting this review nearly a month ago and just found it unfinished in the drafts folder #oops. The kind folks at Kabuku PR invited me along to view this one Sunday morning at the incredible IMAX Sydney and I took along fellow blogger, chef and gourmand extraordinaire, Tammi from Tea for Tammi . HUMPBACK WHALES 3D is pretty much self titled in its explanation...
