Crikey! What a bloody great Australian film!

"Welcome to Australia!"

Epic in the truest sense, Baz Luhrmann's much-hyped Australia is a film that exhilarates with its grand themes and physical grandeur. Fundamentally the Australian response to classic war epics like Gone with the Wind and Lawrence of Arabia, Luhrmann's majestic motion picture is to date the most expensive Australian production in the country's history (with th... read more

Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot.

I kept hearing that this movie was supposed to be an Australian version of 'Gone with the wind' but, in my opinion, it is more an Australian version of 'Out of Africa' but well. I must say it took them some time to find the right tone since, at the beginning the movie, the whole thing was really over-the-top and rather comical to watch. But, slowly, it gets more and more dramatic and quite epic. A... read more

November Movie Journal - Xanadon't (27 movies items)

" It's a big, roaming, goofy movie that's lovable in its "bright eyed, bushy tailed" kind of way. Director Baz Luhrmann seems to have an infectious (well, to me anyway) and simple love for cinema, and it's rare that he does anything without huge, equal measures of joy and gusto. There's also a sort of time-less or "classic" feel to this movie. It's presented in a way that calls to mind old Hollywood stars, scripts, and productions. Everyone seems to be running around with a sort of twinkle in th"

Movie Diary 2012 (551 movies items)

"14.11. Baz Luhrmanin postmodernismi ei ole aiemminkaan uponnut itseeni, ja tällaisen megaeepoksen katsastaminen aamuyöllä oli kyllä sellaista koomailua, että hyvä kun muistaa mitä tapahtui. Yllättävästi teoksen jaksaa kuin jaksaakin katsoa, ja välillä maisemat ovat ihan komeita. Silti homage vanhoille, hyville ja eeppisille seikkailuille ei jaksa kantaa, koska hahmojen todellisen kehittämisen sijaan heidät vain tyypitellään käveleviksi kliseiksi. Nyyhkyvasaralla viuhtominen ei "

50 Things To Do Before You Die (50 movies items)

"34. Catch sunset over Uluru (Ayers Rock) , Northern Territories, Australia The classic thing that everyone has to do when they go to Uluru (Ayers Rock) is to watch the sunset over the rock. There's even a special viewing area. The change in colour as the sun sinks is incredible, with most changes being most noticeable over the last 5 or 10 minutes before the sun drops below the horizon.

2012 Movie Diary - June (68 movies items)

"If I had to describe in one sentence it'd be: An above-average film with fantastic acting and a touching story, but ultimately it is far too long and can be slightly boring. Not one bad performance, but I didn't really like the way it started out mainly as a comedy, then got flipped on its head and turned into some pretty dramatic shiz."

“Set against the scenic backdrop of pre-World War II Australia, Baz Luhrmann's romantic period adventure stars Nicole Kidman as an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch, and Hugh Jackman as the rough-and-tumble cattle driver who helps protect her property from greedy English cattle barons. As the pair attempt to herd 2,000 head of cattle hundreds of miles across the treacherous Australian outback, they are stunned to bear witness to the bombing of Darwin by Japanese forces -- who just a few months prior launched a devastating attack on Pearl Harbor.” read more

Typical Movie Arguments That Irk Me... (11 movies items)

"The Typical Argument: "This is so stupid!" (referring to cultural-specific things they just do not understand) Why That's Bullshit: I could put an array of movies on this list to address this point, but Australia deserves some love. I can't tell you how many times people have complained about the scene in which Nullah (the "African Australian" as some have called him...you know what? Your retardation is off the charts if you've used that term) prevents the stampede from going over the cliff. Th"

But, slowly, it gets more and more dramatic and quite epic. And I must say you have all the elements of a good old epic : drama, romance, war, betrayal, murder, and even some some historical facts put here and there... There are some nice shots and evem though, Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman are not Robert Redford and Mery Streep, they still delivered some pretty good performances. To conclude, even if it is rather flawed and nothing really mind-blowing, it” read more
