Film Review - The Drop

18/11/2014 by Sam Tremayne

Most people get scared off when they hear the words ‘independent film’ (admittedly, I was like that once). But when my job became seeing movies of different lengths, genres and languages, I started to realise that big budgets don’t mean good stories in the same way small budgets don’t mean bad ones. The Drop is James Gandolfini’s last movie and deserves to be seen. It is dark, thrilling and surprisingly swirling with mystery.

Melbourne’s Husky finally decided to make their first visit to Canberra, touring their latest album Ruckers Hill, and they set up in Transit Bar to a rather diverse audience.

La De Da Turns 3!!

12/11/2014 by OutInCanberra

"The word for “ambition” in Chinese is “ye-xin”. It literally means “wild heart”. How freaking cool is that? What better way to describe an ambitious person than saying they are wild at heart? Funnily enough, in Chinese culture having a wild heart used to carry negative undertones of savage abandon and absurd expectations. At La De Da we believe a wild heart is a symptom of a creative heart."
