A Quick Virtual Tour of the 2013 SAG Awards

January 28, 2013


This is the first time we’ve covered the SAG Awards because, I’m going to be honest, I don’t totally understand why they are necessary. Did someone think “Gosh, screen actors just don’t get enough credit these days.”? Is that why the SAGs happen?? Anyway, it doesn’t really matter. We may not understand them, but we […]

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” or “Flim, son of Flam, this is Biff, son of Boff” by Caitlin McGrane

January 24, 2013


I will preface this review with a couple of disclaimers: I have tonsillitis and there were a bunch of small children in the screening I went to, which means my mood may have been slightly skewed. The Hobbit has a special place in my heart. My dad read it to me as a child, in […]

Jake Robinson’s Stereo in a Forest

And first up is the 70th Annual Golden Globes, known for being the awards ceremony that forces movie stars to interact with TV stars (and pretend to like it). Since Australia still hates poor people, and the GGs are still broadcast on Foxtel, we’ve once again […]

Horseplay: Four Letter Word Theatre’s “Equus” by Hilary Binks

January 12, 2013


My initial familiarity with Peter Shaffer’s award-winning play, Equus, was heavily influenced by trashy celebrity mags, and could be summarized by the following: #danielradcliffe #naked #horsesaresexy. Four Letter Word Theatre’s opening performance of Equus, directed by Shannon Loughnane, could not have  further dashed those inadequate expectations. The play centres on child psychiatrist Martin Dysart (Christopher Runciman) and his latest […]

“Neighbours” 2012: The Most Boring Review You’ll Ever Read by Bridie Mills

January 8, 2013


Another year of Neighbours has gone by and I’m left feeling empty again. Not because it’s over, but because it never really began. I’ve spent this year forcing myself to watch Neighbours. This year was even more boring than last year, and anyone who read my last review will know just how boring that is. […]
