Skrillex And Mia’s Collab Is Finally Available For Streaming

14 July 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last month, a low quality preview hit the internet that purported to be a sample of an upcoming collaboration between Skrillex and rapper Mia. Now, the full version of the pair’s efforts is available for streaming, giving fans the chance to hear “Go Off” in its entirety.

“Go Off” features Mia’s heavily auto-tuned rapping over a characteristically world-influenced backbeat. Like many of his high profile collaborations, Skrillex allows his production to take the back burner to add emphasis to the vocal elements. The music is simple, with catchy tribal beats and a repeating middle eastern melody, creating an entrancing rhythm to support Mia’s flow.

The track is a solid release, though nothing particularly ground breaking for either artist involved. The nature of the collaboration is an interesting one however, as Mia’s career was originally thrust into the limelight with the Diplo produced “Paper Planes,” so it »

Barracuda review – a valuable Australian story, with a one-for-the-ages finale

10 July 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Robert Connolly’s take on Christos Tsiolkas’ novel examines the underbelly of Australia’s sporting obsession. It might be a slow burn but you’d do well to stick with it

The protagonist of Christos Tsiolkas 2013 novel, Barracuda, Danny, is a helluva piece of work: a hot-blooded, self-centred, doggedly determined Olympics-aspiring swimmer whose introverted young adult mind is a swirl of competing impulses, many angry and lustful. Think a gay, Australian Holden Caulfield, more competitive than whiny, with a touch of Begbie and a splash (so to speak) of Kieren Perkins.

This is not the Danny we meet in ABC TV’s polished four-part adaptation, directed by Robert Connolly (Paper Planes, Balibo) and written by Belinda Chayko and Blake Ayshford. Or at least it doesn’t appear to be for a long time. Where Tsiolkas invited readers into the volcanic mind of his central character through extensive first-person perspective, the screenwriters, »

25 underappreciated family movies of the last 20 years

26 May 2016 8:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




From Flushed Away and Hunchback to Titan A.E. and Sky High - the family movies that don't get the love they deserve...

When I sit through a film such as Zootropolis, Rango, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Eddie The Eagle or Coraline, I can’t help but be thankful somebody has bothered. As a parent as well as a movie lover, I’ve grown to really dislike family movies that just turn up to act as a surrogate babysitter for 90 minutes, with no intention of becoming anybody’s favourite film. The films I'm going to talk about are the family movies therefore that I think both try and do something a bit more, yet continue to fly under many people's radar. 

A bonus mention before we get going, and number 26 in the list, much to my surprise: Alvin & The Chipmunks 4. I was expecting next to zero from it, courtesy »

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi's latest wins acclaim at Sundance

24 January 2016 7:24 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Taika Waititi

Before jetting in to Sydney to begin filming Thor: Ragnarok with Cate Blanchett and Chris Hemsworth at Fox Studios, Kiwi director Taika Waititi (Boy, What We Do in the Shadows) is soaking up the acclaim in Park City, where his latest film has premiered to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is based on Barry Crump's Wild Pork and Watercress, about a boy (Paper Planes' Julian Dennison) on the run in the New Zealand wilderness with an irascible guardian (Sam Neill)..

"Taika Waititi.s latest is a pleasing comedy-adventure that pays cheeky homage to key early works from that nation.s first filmic renaissance ˜ right down to casting the still-game Sam Neill, who was also a fugitive 40 years ago in Roger Donaldson.s Sleeping Dogs", said Variety's review, adding "the pic is sure to be another home-turf hit."

Sundance Film Review: ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’

23 January 2016 1:35 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A young orphan and his very reluctant keeper “go bush” on the lam from authorities in “Hunt for the Wilderpeople.” Based on a tale by the late, prolific New Zealand novelist Barry Crump, Taika Waititi’s latest is a pleasing comedy-adventure that pays cheeky homage to key early works from that nation’s first filmic renaissance — right down to casting the still-game Sam Neill, who was also a fugitive 40 years ago in Roger Donaldson’s “Sleeping Dogs.” Despite the humor, there’s a cornier, more formulaic core here than in the writer-helmer’s prior successes “Boy” and “What We Do in the Shadows” that may comparatively limit its offshore prospects. But international sales should be hale enough, and the pic is sure to be another home-turf hit.

Australian Cinema Has Record 2015

20 January 2016 5:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Led by “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Dressmaker,” Australian films had a record breaking year at their domestic box office, with a combined score of A$88 million.

That comfortably beat the previous best total of A$63.4 million in 2001. And even adjusted for inflation, Australian titles had their best performance in 14 years.

The overall box office was up 14% on 2014 at A$1.23 billion, a good margin ahead of the previous all-time record of $1.13 billion in 2010, according to data from the Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia.

Despite the strong performance from Australian-made films, the top ten places in the overall chart were all taken by Hollywood movies. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” topped the chart with A$62.8 million ahead of “Jurassic World” on A$52.9 million and “Fast & Furious 7” on A$43.3 million.

The severe weakening of the Australian currency against the Us dollar over the past year, however, means that the »
