When Set and Horus go head to head in combat, the mortal citizens of Egypt hope for one victor (Horus) but in a moment of weakness, Set makes his move and steals the eyes of Horus.

Soon after the downfall of Horus, Set takes over Egypt and enslaves the mortals, knowning there's little hope of being saved, one mortal hero decides to help steal the eyes of Horus back in order to gain the trust of the cast out god. To take the kingdom back (and save Bek's love), he and Horus face vast armies of mortals and immortal demons cast under Set's spell.

Beautiful Kate Review


Very Good
As an Australian Outback family takes a trip down memory lane, this film is anything but sentimental. It's a darkly twisted drama about the tough road to redemption and forgiveness.


After staying away for 20 years, Ned (Mendelsohn) drives his young financee (Dermody) into the middle of nowhere to meet his family. She's clearly out of place in such a rural environment, and being reunited with his younger sister (Griffiths) and wheezy dad (Brown) isn't exactly comfortable for Ned, as skeletons come tumbling from the closet. As a boy (Gill then O'Donnell in flashback), he was unnaturally close to his twin sister Kate (Burner then Lowe), whose early death is also entangled with the death of his older brother (Binks then McFarlane).


Yes, this is a fairly heavy and bleak story, but actress-turned-filmmaker Ward gives it a raw beauty that keeps us gripped, darting back and forth in time to fill in key details as Ned dredges ever deeper into his memory. Ward shoots and edits the flashback scenes with particular skill, really getting into the mind of this confused boy as his closeness to Kate takes an inappropriate turn. And the moods and attitudes are razor sharp.


Meanwhile, the cast members create vivid characters that are utterly consistent even with two or three actors in various eras of each role. All of them have a haunted quality that draws us in, although as the story gets increasingly intense our ability to identify with the characters diminishes. As Kate, Lowe haunts the film beautifully, rather like she haunts everyone's memories.

Australia Review


OK
It takes a half hour before you're able to put a finger on the tone and tactic of Baz Luhrmann's Australia. First steps are taken on shaky legs until the sweeping picture hits its stride. After that, you're given an additional two-and-a-half-hours to determine whether or not you like what's attempted.

At 165 minutes, Australia is ambitious to a point -- and then, to a fault. You can actually point to two movies jockeying for position on screen (well, one full story and the seeds of another). And while I quite liked the primary story, the third-act coda struck me as fodder for a potential sequel I wasn't prepared to sit through at the time.

Thousands Mourn Thorpe In Australia


Bryan Brown Olivia Newton-John

Australian rock legend BILLY THORPE was laid to rest on Sunday (04MAR07) with more than 7,000 people attending his memorial service in Sydney.
The mourners crowded into the Sydney Entertainment Centre to pay their final respects to the rocker who died from a heart attack on 28 February (07).
Thorpe earned great success in the 1960s as a clean-cut pop idol and later gained fame in the 1970s as the lead singer of the hard rock band BILLY THORPE + THE AZTECS.
Flanking Thorpe's casket were 13 of his favourite guitars, which were taken off the wall of his recording studio, where they were normally displayed.
Among the thousands of fans at the memorial service were former MIDNIGHT OIL frontman PETER GARRETT, Australian rocker JIMMY BARNES and BREAKER MORANT star Bryan Brown.
Olivia Newton-John, who grew up on stage and screen in Australia with Thorpe, sang OVER THE RAINBOW, which the rocker regularly sang throughout his four-decade career.

Aguilera Video Caught Up In Street Protest


Christina Aguilera Bryan Brown

Pop superstar Christina Aguilera faces having to drastically overhaul her ambitious comeback video shoot this weekend (28-30APR06) after getting caught up in America's immigration dispute. The singer had planned to team up with top video director Bryan Brown to shoot the big-budget promo for AIN'T NO OTHER MAN in downtown Los Angeles this weekend, but the chosen venue will be overrun by immigration protestors. Aguilera and Brown thought they'd found the perfect place for the Cotton Club-inspired video and they're unwilling to let activists fighting for the rights of Latino immigrants ruin their plans - unless it's absolutely necessary. A source says, "At the moment it is all still on for Friday, but we may be forced to change locations because of the big protests scheduled for downtown. It'll be a shame if that happens because we had the perfect place."

Two Hands Review


Excellent
Writer/director Gregor Jordan's Two Hands is a brilliant little film; what we Aussies might call a "ripper." Preceding the more sophisticated Aussie thriller Chopper by just a year, it announced the beginning of the Australian film industry's obsession with crime. Not quite as stylish as Dirty Deeds or as hilarious as Gettin' Square, Two Hands deals well in both these traits, adding to the mix grit, suspense, and true romance.

Jimmy (Heath Ledger) works as a doorman at a strip club in the infamous Kings Cross area of Sydney. "The Cross" is the kind of place where trouble of the criminal kind is perfectly unavoidable, and Jimmy has trouble avoiding it. When asked by crime kingpin Pando (Bryan Brown) to deliver $10,000 to a unit in Bondi, Jimmy sees himself moving up in the world. When he loses the money on a disappointingly unromantic errand and it is stolen by a pair of Dickensian street kids, Jimmy knows he is a dead man. His only chance is to hook up with his dead brother's ex-gang and rob a bank to make the money back. As Pando's goons, including Acko (David Field) and Wally (Tom Long), hunt Jimmy down, the film races tensely to a climax that will decide his fate.

Cocktail Review


OK
Before there was Coyote Ugly, there was Cocktail.

The story of an ex-G.I. (Cruise) who can't get a job in the Manhattan business world and turns to bartending to make his fortune is as a bartender, pouring with style, jumping on the counter, and spouting poetry. The love story with rich girl Elisabeth Shue is hilarious -- but watch for Kelly Lynch and Gina Gershon, both unknown at the time, in small tryst roles.
