Chappie - Movie Review

16/03/2015 by Sam Tremayne

Chappie has all the right ingredients to be a delicious film: a stellar cast, a unique setting, impeccable visual effects and great cinematography. Unfortunately, it comes out underdone and leaves a bitter aftertaste. Neill Blomkamp is at the helm, famed for his short film, District 9, that became a massive feature. Since then he has since failed to recapture the magic and the essence of what made that a modern-day classic.

16/03/2015 by Maeve Bannister

This year, You Are Here is a little shorter than usual – it’s running for five days instead of eleven – in order to dedicate more time and support to the artists involved. But don’t worry! The festival still has a massive program and is jam-packed with dance, theatre, performances, and visual art shows, to name but a few.

13/03/2015 by OutInCanberra

St Patrick’s Day... Somehow over centuries the activities of a Catholic missionary became an excuse to drink buckets of thick beer before lunch. Well, what are we to do on Tuesday 17 March other than join in? With a strong representation of Irish heritage in Canberra, as well as a few cracking pubs of the same ilk, there are quite a few options should you choose to blow off Tuesday (and perhaps Wednesday as well) for a craic*. No matter where you end up, we can only advise you get in before 5.00pm! ____________________________________ The Canberra Irish Club Weston
