Family isn’t about blood.

I have known this statement to be true for a while. Last night it was proven to me again. In a movie of all things. And perhaps in a movie where you would least expect it. Through my two children I was introduced to the Fast & Furious movie franchise. I never expected to love… Continue reading Family isn’t about blood.

When love is a twisted affair, someone is always broken.

A few weeks ago I watched Baz Lurhmann's The Great Gatsby. I had put off watching it, fearful that it would fall short of the 1974 movie that as a teenage girl had me wringing my hands and my heart writhing with pain at the injustice done to Jay Gatsby. For it is often that… Continue reading When love is a twisted affair, someone is always broken.

Never Tear Us Apart.

As most of you know I grew up in Sydney. It was a time that it was okay to hitchhike home at 3 in the morning from a club. The beaches weren't crowded. Bands such as INXS were just starting out. I was lucky enough to see these guys before they became a worldwide hit. … Continue reading Never Tear Us Apart.

The Wolf of Wall Street

The Batman – Christian Bale Style

As superheroes go - THE BATMAN - is in a class that only has room for one !!! There have been a few Batmen over the years. However, as far as I am concerned, only two have ever come close to personifying what The Batman is. Michael Keaton from the 1989 Batman and the 1992… Continue reading The Batman – Christian Bale Style

The Mechanic

I am a huge Jan-Michael Vincent fan. He played the role of Steve, with Charles Bronson as Arthur Bishop, in the 1972 version of The Mechanic. The film was a classic. So that you are clear - The 1972 film is one of my favourite movies in the world. Sometimes Hollywood should learn to leave… Continue reading The Mechanic

To Justin or not to Justin…

Sometimes... I am surprised. Last night was one of those times. I watched "Never Say Never", the Justin Bieber movie, or rather documentary of his whoosh into the world of superstardom. Let's be clear. I will probably never buy a CD of his, I will never go to a concert, and I will never faint… Continue reading To Justin or not to Justin…

The mysterious hero…

I’m a hero kind of girl. Some like the bad boys – I can see the attraction. Me though, I like someone who will save the girl every time. Growing up I was glued to the TV (when we finally got one) watching Superman as he saved Lois, again, and again, and again – well… Continue reading The mysterious hero…
