Storm Boy Movie Review
The novel by Colin Thiele was first published in 1966. That was followed by the first filmed version in 1976. Fast forward to 2019 and director Shawn Seet (The Code and Underbelly) presents a new take starring Geoffrey Rush, Jai Courtney, Trevor Jamieson and the amazing newcomer, Finn Little as the young boy who helps save the lives of three orphaned pelicans.
It’s a universal story of growing up without the aid of a full family unit and believing in something ...

Mary Queen of Scots Movie Review
There is a lack of opulence and bright colours that were probably closer to the reality of the times. This is a dark tale, set in dark surrounds, during a dark time. The sets and costumes also do an effective job of staying in this mindset.
The main women, Saoirse Ronan at her best as the luminous Mary Stuart and Margot Robbie as the severely portrayed Queen Elizabeth the First are the heroes here, while the men behind them play war mongering, cheats, liars and ...
Songs and Times of Sam Cooke
Credited by many as the inventor of soul music, Cooke began his career in gospel bands, later moving to “secular music” and creating a sound that broke the colour divide.
More than sharp suits, luxury cars, generous women and earthy language, Cooke’s crystal-clear, velvet-smooth voice had the melodies to match and revolutionised a new genre.
Cooke broke race and religious barriers in the 1950’s and 1960’s and became one of the best known African ...
Glass Movie Review
Although this new work is far from perfect, it succeeds quite well in tying up a lot of the loose ends from the earlier films while creating a few new strands to savour. This time out the storyline features Sarah Paulson as the doctor who trying to make sense out of the main protagonist’s powers. This approach unfolds slowly and features a sting in the tail end.
Shyamalan proves adept as setting a scene with just the right amount of creepy overtones and slowly ...

Vice Movie Review
The film is both wildly inventive and unafraid to take its audience members into some very dark places. It follows Chaney from his blue collar beginnings to his place on the highest rungs of power. With stops along the way for three heart attacks, an accidental shooting of a 78 year old Texas attorney while quail hunting and the reciting of Shakespeare before shagging his wife Lynne played with a power hungry intensity by Amy Adams.
Those moments and many more are ...
