Why was "UPCOMING FILM OPENINGS" e.g.
Month of Apr. May. June.and on...discontinued within Cinefile?
Very informative!! Thanks.
Dep.Ed: We stopped
running them because the dates change constantly, and it was very
time consuming to keep them accurate. But, given your interest, we have re-introduced them.
Having paid who knows how much for the rights
to prepare a screen play from Rum Punch by Elmore Leonard then
call the result Jackie Brown seems to be what they mean when they
talk about tinsel town.Any thoughts?
Dep Ed: That's Hollywood
for you. I actually don't think the title makes much difference
one way or another - would work either way.
It's pretty obvious, but it seems the writer of
The Bitch didn't really notice the Oscar nominations that Titanic
received. He or she implies Leonardo di Caprio received a Best
Actor nomination, this is not the case.

Not only are you a very literal little vegemite, you're a very
smug one, too, AGunn.
If you were capable of actually reading more than a sentence or
two before losing the thread, you just might have worked out that
the nominations weren't exactly serious - viz to wit Oscar for
Bestest Best FX and Best Drowning Noises. Hey? geddit??
I'm sorry to say, AGunn, that when they open the envelope to read
out the winner of the Best Grasp of Irony category, your name
will not be on the card and you will not be called upon to thank
guhd and your mom while clutching a small statuette.
AGunn, do not pass go, do not collect two hundred pounds, do not
even imagine you'll get a TER above 36, and do not write "ha
ha" at the end of messages unless you are Very Very sure of
your reason for amusement.
Yours respectfully, The Bitchy One
I've had Cinefile bookmarked for a couple of
months, and try to visit every Thursday for the new stuff. It's
great to find reviewers whose opinions can be trusted (apart from
making a great read!). Andrew, I'm so glad you're on the James
Valentine show on 2BL, as now I get a weekly reminder to come and
visit this wonderful site.
Thanks for all the hard work,
Kate Andrews, Sydney
I love your site and I find it very
informative. I'm American, but I'm very interested in Australian
film and I've been linked to it for almost the full year that
your site's been around. Anyway, I noticed that you have a
movie-related links page on your site and I wanted to suggest
mine: Noah's Lark: The Unofficial Noah Taylor Website
Thanks in advance!

Urban Cinefile is great. How can I contribute
to your success? Got any T-shirts or merchandise, I could buy or
Hi, Firstly thanks for the mag. I'm living in
Gothenburg Sweden and constantly bully friends into seeing my
favourite Australian movies (though the opportunity comes around
but once or twice a year). With your site at least I can steer
them towards things that are actually happening now instead of
movies released months if not years before. Perhaps you could
help me find out :
1) Which if any Australian films will be released in Sweden this
2) If it’s possible to get hold of a video highlighting
films made in Australia this last year, ie. clips from the AFI
Thanks and keep up the good work.
Readers’ suggestions welcome on this one!
Hi, just a bitch about classifications. Why the
hell was Devil’s Advocate rated R18+. Are we following the
American model where ultra violence is perfectly acceptable, but
a bit of tit & bum makes a restricted rating. Is Pauline
Hanson running the board? Are these people answering to the
closed minds of our populist pollies or the Alan Jones talkback
audience? (No need to answer that question.) I thought the
gabfest between State and Federal classification boards was supposed to improve things. As an
exhibitor I find it very difficult to justify preventing under
18's seeing such a film...
