Top quality police drama
I have watched this Series since it was first aired and the quality hasn't waivered.
It is my fervent hope that the producers continue to realize the shows popularity and don't go by the very peculiar ratings system they seem to employ that advises them to cancel a show that is popular and replace it with rubbish.
The Best of Big Brother (2001)
What appalling rubbish
This type voyeuristic tripe is an indictment of our society at it's worst. How can people be so desperate for fleeting fame and a bit of cash that they are prepared to degrade themselves in such a fashion. I am assuming that the base behaviour and total lack of any morals was a 'put up job'. I hope these people have more respect for themselves than to go flashing their 'wares' and screwing anything that moves without being paid well for it.
Having said that, to be prepared to act like this in front of the cameras AND get paid for it is little more than pornography. As for the other behaviour, well, their mothers are probably completely ashamed of the lot of them.
And by the way, I'm not some geriatric prude, or a prissy young teenager!
Heroes' Mountain (2002)
Thredbo disaster made heroes of rescuers: well told
There wasn't anything new that could be done with a disaster story. It's a dramatisation of an actual event after all. But it was extraordinary to "see" the story behind what we all read in the newspapers and heard in TV broadcasts.
The direction was good, the story told well and acted very well. It was good to see Craig McLachlan in something again, and Nadine Garner.
Well worth a look.
Excellent entertainment/go and see it at least once
My first impression of this film was the richness of the photography and the flawlessness of the graphic effects. Other than that, all the characters were perfectly cast, brilliantly acted and the story treated very well. There was very little missing from the book which surprised me greatly.
It is immensely entertaining whether you are a Harry Potter devotee or not.
My advice is GO AND SEE IT, especially if you like to be entertained. And it was all done without bad language and Hollywood violence - what is the world of entertainment coming to!
The Relic (1997)
Why don't Americans know about 60W bulbs?
This movie, I hate to say, is so predictable it should be made a criminal offense. The acting was good, Direction pretty good but whoever came up with the plot just followed the dots!
I won't go into the story, that is covered elsewhere, suffice to say there are bodies and gore everywhere right up to the credits.
This is the movie you get from the video store when you're kept indoors by bad weather and you've been watching reruns of old Christmas movies for a month. Then it doesn't seem so bad.
At least they were brave enough to show the perpetrator of the suspense which is more than some have done.
Just remember, keep your expectations low when you go to watch this and you'll be entertained.
Brilliant animation, great music, good story
I took my 6 year old to see this and we both loved it. He danced and sang his way through 2/3 of the movie and I sang along (under my breath of course) too. The donkey and the dragon made a wonderful couple.
An alcoholic tramp is framed for a police murder
Some wonderful footage of Perth, Western Australia. Story of the alcoholc tramp (Marcus Graham) overcoming his alcoholism while trying to prove his innocence is quite well written and played. The denouement though is a little far fetched which reduces the impact. Kerry Armstrong's role and performance is again a highlight.
Le Mans (1971)
I love it!
IMO this film gives a real feel for the Le Mans 24 hour. I have seen it 1/2 dozen times and still find more things to appreciate about the movie and the direction. Another plus is that Steve McQueen isn't made the typical hero in the usual way portrayed by American Moviemakers.
