whistle argue & quarrel

The Way We Were by John Halili

I’ve seen first hand how a friendship can die. From an unspoken truth that became an all too told lie. Now all I have left are the memories.

Steve/Stephanie by Julie Balloo

You didn’t see me, but I recognised you. Your dress and heels and newly sculpted breasts finally solved…

mad_maxMAD MAX: FURY ROAD (USA/Australia 2015) ****
Directed by George Miller

Starring: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Nathan Jones, Zoë Kravitz, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Review by Gilbert Seah

Aussie director George Miller, now in his 70s reboots his MAD MAX movies after decades with MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, a film that spurned two sequels and defined the anti-hero (Mel Gibson becoming famous in the process as a bad ass actor and human being).

The reboot is again set in a post apocalyptic future of a desert wasteland where petroleum is the needed commodity in which all tribes fight and kill for it. And water.

Short Film Movie Review: THE MEGA PLUSH (4min, USA, Animation/Action)

Festival Reviews

THE MEGA PLUSH was the winner of Best Film at the WILDsound FEEDBACK Film Festival in January 2016. 

  MOVIE POSTERTHE MEGA PLUSH, 4min, USA, Animation/Action
Directed by Matt Burniston

Set in the shadows of a gritty underworld, a war is brewing. The Mega Plush, a group of four plush toy vigilantes, are struggling against the uprising of the SOC (Society of Chimps) army. Good vs evil. Bear vs sock monkey. The question is “who has the stuffing to survive?”

Movie Review by Amanda Lomonaco:

Badass gangsters, a suspenseful chase scene, cute plush stuffed animals, what’s not to like? Matt Burnison has definitely hit gold mine territory in my book. After so many predictable Marvel films coming out its beyond refreshing to see an original action hero story coming from independent cinema, once again reminding me what Hollywood could achieve if it listened to new voices.

Perhaps the best part of…
