HOMELAND (AKA NE QUELQUE PART) | DVD REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

HOMELAND MOVIE IMAGE

Let me start by saying this has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TV SHOW!!!! You will not win a season box set of Carrie Mathison chasing Nicholas Brody through war torn towns :). What you will get is a look into another culture and a great film from our friends at Madman Films called HOMELAND. Kernel Andrew will explain it all to you – it is out now on DVD, has been for a while, I discovered all the DVDs when unpacking the office from the big Sydney move...

BEATRIZ’S WAR (AKA A GUERRA DA BEATRIZ) | MOVIE REVIEW

BEATRIZ'S WAR MOVIE IMAGE

BEATRIZ’S WAR (aka A GUERRA DA BEATRIZ) is the very first feature film out of East Timor EVER. That in itself is a remarkable feat. It tells their story through a fictionalised tale based on a French film and it does so quite well. It has, unfortunately, finished its limited run in Australia, and I offer abundant apologies for our review delay – there was a communication breakdown and the viewing link got lost...

FORREST GUMP MOVIE IMAGE

FORREST GUMP is a legendary film that you will love or you will hate, most will love it – it was incredible for me, how many of you quoted the “life is like a box of chocolates” or “my momma always said…” and what about “Run Forrest Run”? Hmmm? Well time to feel old, you are now older as the film is now 20yrs FREAKING old...
