There Is You

Yes, me too.


On days when there is nothing,
There is you
And that is the best thing about love.
Constant, unchanging,
With still so much left
To which we can look forward.
Grateful and hopeful,
I spend my days in love.

The first feature trailer has dropped for Red Dog True Blue, following a teaser trailer a few months back.

The 1960’s set followup to Kriv Stenders’ 2011 Red Dog, stars Levi Miller, Jason Isaacs, Bryan Brown and the very talented Hanna Mangan Lawrence who we aren’t seeing enough of in movies right now.

Red Dog True Blue explores the early events leading up to Red Dog’s discovery on the road to Dampier, and his ultimate rise from ordinary dog to Australian legend.

Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Red Dog True Blue is in cinemas Boxing Day.

Film Mafia



The 35th feature film directed by Clint Eastwood, Sully, like much of his latest work, is a highly proficient, professional, refreshingly unsentimental procedural about men. (It hasn’t always been this way; Changeling (2008) , Million Dollar Baby (2004) and The Bridges of Madison County (1995) are examples of his helmsmanship of solid female-led dramas.)

The workplace in this case is not just the cockpit of a troubled aircraft but the entire infrastructure associated with large-scale commercial aviation. It turns out that the aircraft industry takes every dangerous incident extremely seriously, and, unlike the media – so quick to refer to the pilot of the “miracle on the Hudson” as a “hero” – they are required to react soberly, even skeptically.

It is in all the specific, at times technical details – of how the cockpit functions; of the relationship between pilot, co-pilot, cabin staff and air traffic control…

Great news for WA film making and makers!

Cinema Australia

Production begins today in Western Australia on the feature film Three Summers, the new ensemble romantic comedy written and directed by Ben Elton.

The first Australian feature film from the internationally renowned writer, director and comedian, Three Summers is a spirited take on the annual festival goers at a regional music festival over three consecutive years. Embracing the diversity of this typically Australian community as it gathers together in a music tent, the film fuses romance and music with Elton’s trademark wit and satirical edge.

Actor Robert Sheehan (Misfits, Red Riding Trilogy) is confirmed to star alongside Rebecca Breeds (TV’s Pretty Little LiarsHome and Away); they join a diverse Australian cast of some of the country’s most talented and beloved screen performers including John Waters (TV’s Offspring), Magda Szubanski (Happy Feet, Babe) and Michael Caton (Last Cab to Darwin, The…

A Handful Of Daffodils

A girl after my own heart…


I started at the end of this poem
and I’m working my way up
but, isn’t that how it goes
for lovers of language,

for dreamers like us?

I cannot stand being in the middle
sitting on the fence like a raven
waiting, waiting
for someone to make the next move.
There is no resentment in this heart,
just a lack of understanding,
a need for reasoning
because that’s just how my mind works,

and then there is you.
You come along with kind words
and contentment
and shoo away any angst
with a wand; blessings of peace
for the sentimental to savor.
My shoulders fall like wings
and I cannot even remember
what all the to-do was about

Then, here we go,

Sway and hum, catch a firefly
on our way to the moon,
some nights, we shimmer,
others, shiver, out in the cold,

but always with a…

Bond again?

“Never say never again: Daniel Craig ‘offered $150m for two more Bonds’

Despite ongoing speculation as to who might replace the actor, Sony have reportedly tried to secure Craig’s services for a further couple of movies.”

I expect you to be rehired … Daniel Craig in Skyfall
