Life Will Be The Death Of Me: Chelsea Handler’s Stand-Up Comedy Tour is coming to Australia this October!

Life Will Be The Death Of Me: Chelsea Handler’s Stand-Up Comedy Tour, taking the same name as her just-released #1 NY Times Best Selling sixth book, Life Will Be The Death Of Me, will see the disarmingly honest and riotously funny Handler, head to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne from October 4.   //   Fresh from her 27-date tour in the US, this brand-new stand up show is classic Chelsea Handler. The brash candour and self-deprecating humour that fuelled her previous ...

Palm Beach Movie Review

This is somewhat off-putting because almost every male in the movie is a jerk. It makes it difficult to connect with any of the players. This is exaggerated by the main character Frank (Bryan Brown) being rich and having a hard to relate to life of privilege. His very posh house high on a hill over looking the water actually plays a more important role than some of the women.   //   Fathers, mothers, sons and daughters gather together at the house to celebrate Frank’s ...

Penn & Teller are coming to Brisbane January 2020!

Dubbed “the greatest performing duo in showbiz” by Jimmy Fallon, Penn & Teller have defied labels – and at times physics and good taste – by redefining the genre of magic and inventing their own very distinct niche in comedy. In this sharp and hilarious production, the “Evil Geniuses” (David Letterman) of magic will bring their mind-bending show direct to QPAC’s Concert Hall, with Queensland audiences given the rare opportunity to witness Penn & Teller performing ...

Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood Movie Review

The characters that inhabit this world are somehow softer, less hyper cool, more down to earth and less criminal. For those expecting the histrionics that QT usually fires out, this time that intensity is set to slow burn. The film’s final reel is classic violence overkill (quite literally) and will satiate those with a taste for the big red.   //   Most of the salacious appeal of the film is its connection to Charles Mason and his disciples and while they play a part, ...

Watch the trailer for Zombieland: Double Tap!

In the sequel, written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and Dave Callaham, through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, these four slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.   //   Starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Emma Stone, Abigail ...

Late Night Movie Review

Set in the world of host driven late night television shows, it uses some of the inherent hypocrisy of the genre as its foundation. It builds something from this base that is equal parts comedy and social commentary. It makes statements but is far from preachy.   //   Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is the much heralded and old school host who has lost touch with her audience and in some ways herself. She answers accusations of being anti female in her writing staff ...

When a new threat emerges that puts both Bird and Pig Island in danger, Red (Jason Sudeikis), Chuck (Josh Gad), Bomb (Danny McBride), and Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage) recruit Chuck’s sister Silver (Rachel Bloom) and team up with pigs Leonard (Bill Hader), his assistant Courtney (Awkwafina), and techpig Garry (Sterling K. Brown) to forge an unsteady truce and form an ...

Watch the new trailer for Late Night!

Legendary talk-show host Katherine Newberry (Oscar® winner Emma Thompson) is a pioneer in her field. The only woman ever to have a long-running program on late night, she keeps her writers’ room on a short leash ― and all male. But when her ratings plummet and she is accused of being a “woman who hates women,” Katherine puts gender equality on her to-do list and impulsively hires Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling), a chemical plant efficiency expert from suburban Pennsylvania, as the first ...
