‘Fury’ Runs Over ‘Gone Girl’ on the Path to the Top

Despite the fact that October tends to be relatively packed full of horror films, Brad Pitt’s return to the silver screen has been met with an enormous response. Thanks to the $23.5 million that it had made on its opening weekend, Fury has knocked Gone Girl from its chart-topping position. Sales aren’t the only thing going for the WWII action film; on top of that, Rotten Tomatoes currently reveals that Fury has an 80% aggregate rating out of over 140 reviews.

Meanwhile, The Book of Life which is Guillermo del Toro’s latest animated production has fared well. Studio estimates tell …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Fury’ Offers A Haunting and Thrilling Vision Of World War II

Film: Fury
Starring: Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman
Directed By: David Ayer

Fury is a violent film about bad men doing bad things in the heart of Nazi-occupied Germany at the tail end of World War II. It’s the complete opposite of a feel-good film, but it just might be one of the year’s best cinematic experiences.

The men who inhabit the tank known as Fury are not a group of people you would normally think to pair together. You have a fearless leader who’s seen it all, the war-worn young man clinging to the hope that God has good plans …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Stretch’ Is One Hollow Ride

Film: Stretch
Starring: Chris Pine, Patrick Wilson, Jessica Alba
Directed By: Joe Carnahan

In a scene from Joe Carnahan’s micro-budgeted Stretch that was dropped from Universal Pictures’ release schedule abruptly, David Hasselhoff questions the protagonist (who is his chauffeur) on if he is or is not a ‘punk-ass motherf****r.’ Yes that’s right, the main character then goes on to prove that he is not indeed a ‘punk-ass motherf****r’ for the rest of the runtime. Dealing with the basic thematic weight of any story about ‘becoming a man’ or ‘stepping up to the plate,’ Stretch tries to instigate laughs from depravity …

THEATRE REVIEW: ‘Once’ The Musical

Show: Once
Produced by: John Frost and The Melbourne Theatre Company
Venue: Princess Theatre, Melbourne

There are very few films that successfully manage to encapsulate the raw power and emotional connectivity that music possesses. John Carney’s 2006 low budget romcom Once is one of those films; a critically acclaimed ‘sleeper hit’ that has developed a cult following among musicians and music fans alike. Once took a simple tale of ‘boy meets girl and is inspired by said girl to pursue his talents in a quest to get more out of life and earn her love’ and turned it into one …
