I Want to Get Married (2011)
Please give this movie a chance!
this movie isn't about a gay man who goes on a string of dates because he wants to have a frivolous marriage to some guy.... And the main character is played as a genuine nerd who we all meet and know in real life. This seems to be some of the issues people tend to have about this film, some of whom have not even seen it!
Paul is a gay man who lives in the real world, he isn't picture perfect as far as the gay stereotypes go ( though he is really handsome!) and he doesn't have strings of unknown sex encounters and he doesn't do drugs and go clubbing as many other gay stereotypes insist we all do all the time, he is a man who is looking for love.
This film and funny and realistic with a group of friends who some have and others only wish they had which make the film thoroughly enjoying. The chemistry between the characters of Paul and Jim is engaging and also refreshing to have a couple of regular men who are looking for everyday, real, fantastic love ( if that happens or not you will have to watch the film ).
at the end of the day this film isn't about a guy who wants to get married just for getting married sake, he wants to get married in a world filled with governments and family who may be against him. Give is a shot, laugh at the funnies and take in the very relevant message that this film perfectly delivers.
In Search of Dr. Seuss (1994)
Maybe we need a little more Suess now days...
When I think Seus, I think of witty rhyming stories with bursts of color and humor. I think of a world that he created which boasts many inhabitants including the Cat in the hat, The Grinch, Horton the Elephant, The Sneetches, to name a few. Where did all these important symbols of our time come from? Well, this is what In Search of Dr Seuss shows us, the man himself. T Giesel. Without destroying the colorful world which is Seus we are shown his childhood, the dramas he went through being an outsider which formed his own opinions which he voiced through his witty drawings against racism and Hittler. We learn about his marriages,his opinions of war, what inspired him, where the name Seus came from and ultimately his death. Through out this documentary we the audience get a rare glimpse into the true nature of some of these stories we might not have thought too deeply into since first hearing them as children. That said this documentary celebrates his life and I would suggest it appropriate for children. Maybe that is what we need more of today for our kids, the simplistic and innocent stories which can teach so us, even today, so much.
Australians at War (2001)
Must see for all Australians
As a 22 year old young Australian I was very excited when I came across this documentary series so I could see what had happened in my country before I was born, and what my people had gone through in war and conflict. As a Seaman in the Royal Australian Navy I was fascinated to see what harsh conditions those of the Australian Defence Force had withstood and how lucky I am to follow in their footsteps. This series has given us the chance to see how Australias views on war have changed and how our country itself is different from that which our great grandfathers were born into. For those who want to know more about what Australia truly is, than this series shows it to you in full. 10/10.
Colour of War: The ANZACs (2004)
Must see for All Aussies and New Zealanders
I watch this series of documentaries as a 20 year old, about to enlist in the Australian Royal Navy in a few months. I thought I had a good grasp of the world wars, but I was wrong. Seeing in actual colour men and woman of Australia and New Zealand, hearing our accents and seeing how scared and brave they were totally blew me away. Seeing how our nation was in the 1930s, the deep loyalty to England. Even though they were scared, they did what they had to do, and not only offered their support but their soldiers lives. This documentary provides a great deal of detail about the ANZACS (Australian New Zealand Army Core) and their countries in the time of war. I defy anyone to watch this and not have a deep emotional response.
Batman & Robin (1997)
Bottom 100? Come on guys, the movie rocks!
How can anyone not like this? Okay, it's a conceit that Barbara can just become Batgirl, but come on guys, we are watching a movie about a bat and a bird who fight crime! I was thirteen when I watched it for the first time, and now I'm twenty I find it just as enjoyable. It's fun, it takes you for a thrill ride and gives you a good time. So back off next time when you have a go at this movie, just because you don't like it doesn't mean you have to put it down. I am a fan, and I know there are heaps of us out there.
Batman and Robin rock!
Fine example of film making
This film show shows us the life of a young man Jack. He is a normal teenager, who's life is turned upside down after his parents divorce, and he discovers his father is in a gay relationship. Jack must now not only come to terms with his own problems as a teenager, but the realization that his parents are actual people too. Every actor in this movie is amazing, being a teenager myself I wasn't sure I would be interested in this sort of movie. The 'gay' story on the flipside of a heterosexual teen being identified as having a gay father and how he must deal with the social backlash, gave me a new perspective something not many movies to do tell well now days. The story is simply about a teenager coming to grips with the world around him. Using great story, terrific acting and brilliant filming techniques I think everyone should take a little time to watch this movie, and learn what it has to teach us while being entertained, 10/10
Give this movie a bone already...
I'm not sure what people expected from this film when they put it down. It's a movie about a Toy factory, it's funny.. and it looks a little deeper into the weird and wacky world we are raising our children in.
I find it to be entertaining on many levels. First there is the slapstick sight gags (the smoking jacket), than the 'come on, we've all done it' line (watch it to find out what I'm talking about) which, like many others is an adult joke that doesn't rule out kids finding it funny too.
So if you like good music (closing of the year, is in my opinion all all time classic), laughs and something to take you back to your youth than I suggest this movie. 8/10.
Cruel Intentions 2 (2000)
Awesome... totally rocks
I'm a teenager, i was seventeen when I first saw this movie and I think it was great. I love the original, don't get me wrong but this movie allowed us to see how the 'mighty do fall', so to speak. Which I think adds to second movie. Those who put it down, however you might find are out of the age bracket this movie was directed at. Robin Dunne is one of my favourite actors, basically when he is in something you know your in for a great performance. I found he with Sarah Thompson and Keri Lynn Pratt gave an edgy and sexy (very sexy in the shower and park scenes) performance which I enjoyed and have enjoyed many times over. So no prizes to people who put this down just cause it's a sequel prequel or whatever it is, just see it as a good movie thats a companion to something great and buy the dvd like i did. 5 out of 5.
Dont miss it, it's great
Magical, creative, memorable, genius, technical, unique... I think think of many other key words to describe this movie, it is one of my favourites of all time. Jack Skellington is king of Halloween, the world who creates our holiday. Well Jack discovers Christmas and tries to make it his own. What makes this charming story so special is a technique called stop motion is used, the whole movie is made up of singing and movie dolls. Sound a bit to much? Watch it, I bed you, you wont regret it. Danny Elfmans score is amazing, I used to listen to the soundtrack walking to school every day. And Tim Burtons story is just amazing, I love all his work. Grab this one for the family, especially around Halloween or Christmas, it's a great treat.
The Forsaken (2001)
I'm not a fan of Dawsons Creek, by that I mean I never got to see it but if I can ever watch it I will, but I have heard of Kerr Smith and it was the only reason I watched this movie. What I found, however was actually a really good and in parts scary, sexy, vampire movie. People say it's not original, I think it is. The vampire lore has been modernised (modernized) very well in certain tv shows, but Forsaken Desert Vampires really did scare me, and I felt something for the poor people who I felt were just like me in this horror nightmare being chased by vampires. If you dont like great acting, scary scenes, drama or great music than don't watch this movie, cause it has it all. Plus it has Kerr in a singlet and cars, what else do you need?? I was 17 when I first saw it, and think it's great for people in and around that age bracket.
