With the Sydney Morning Herald posing the question, “How do you know a hit? When everyone at the festival stops what they're doing and sprints towards the music.” When their song ‘Stolen Dance’ hit the Valley stage in Byron, ...

Naomi Price to premiere deeply personal new work at La Boite – Lady Beatle
“Lady Beatle is the third and final pop culture cabaret in our planned trilogy, following Rumour Has It and Wrecking Ball,” Price said. “This is certainly our most ambitious work to date, weaving a fantastical fictional tale about the real women who inspired The Beatles’ biggest chart toppers.”
Unlike predecessors Rumour Has It and Wrecking Ball, centred on the lives of pop music icons Adele and Miley Cyrus respectively, Price said Lady Beatle wasn’t a ...
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Movie Review
The visuals and set design are also ramped up to a lollie shop level of bright colours and eye candy. The underlining story is rather thin this time but does divulge further information on Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and his parents and how the animosity between sisters Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) became so intense. This lack of deep story story telling does little to distract from the fun as the script is rife with humour and running gags. This is especially true with the ...

Denial Movie Review
The film packs true emotion and proves there is still a place in modern cinema for films that are made for adults. It’s a heart wrenching look at a serious subject and one that engages the audience through a solid script and superlative acting and never reduces things to cheap theatrics.
The subject, the Holocaust and its deniers is given a mature treatment and even the people in the wrong are treated with respect. It is not however just a dry courtroom drama and as the case progresses, ...
The Fate of the Furious Movie Review
The Fate of the Furious is the first complete edition of the series after the tragic death of core cast member Paul Walker and his loss in firmly felt. His character is only given one line of reference dialogue and this outing features the weakest character development in a long time.
To compensate for this lack of story, the action is ramped up to unheralded levels of crazy. It also shows some signs of complacency as some of the special effects are quite dodgy ...
