Flashback Interview:
TERENCE STAMP: A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE
"American stars don't want to kill the baby. I'll kill the baby. I'll kill any baby for a good part," he says in this extensive, searching interview/profile recently unearthed from the archives of our Editor, Andrew L. Urban. It was recorded soon after Terence Stamp finished shooting Steph Elliott's now legendary movie, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, in which he plays Bernadette, the transsexual elder of the troupe heading to Alice Springs. We think it's worth sharing with our readers.

Movie review:
TANNA
(Aus, 2015) Dir: Bentley Dean, Martin Butler. Stars Mungau Dain, Marie Wawa. "Bentley Dean's cinematography is breathtaking... The film is worth seeing for the visuals alone," says Louise.

Movie review:
MAN UP
(UK, France, 2015) Dir: Ben Palmer. Stars Lake Ball, Simon Pegg. "Filled with wonderfully inventive and offbeat ideas, the dialogue and action take off like a hyperactive plane that can't wait to make its ascent," says Louise.

Movie review:
FREEHELD
(US, 2015) Dir: Peter Sollett. Stars Julianne Moore, Elle Page, Steve Carell. " It's a valid story with poignant elements, yet director Peter Sollett champions the elements with an earnest voracity that detracts," says Louise.

Movie review:
NOW ADD HONEY
(Aus, 2015) Dir: Wayne Hope. Stars Robyn Butler, Lucy Fry, Portia de Rossi, Hamish Blake. "There are moments when the film feels as though it is going to turn a corner and fly, but it never does. It comes close but ..." says Louise.

UPCOMING FILMS
[Coming in December, Suffragette, starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Meryl Streep. "Tight close ups accentuate the personal nature of this story, in which one woman's fight for women's rights leads us into the broader view of the suffragette cause," says Louise.]

Short and sweet (or not) opinions on the most popular current releases. An easy reference for choosing which movie to see tonight or tomorrow or right now! (Occasionally we also slip in a few of our favourites if they don 't make the top 20)

NEW DVDS:
AMY
Documentary with Amy Winehouse. "Amy is a powerful film. Like the lyrics of her songs, it's the personal nature of this fly-on-the-wall documentary about singer Amy Winehouse that makes it so special," says Louise.

HOT PURSUIT
Stars Reece Witherspoon, Sofia Vergara, Matthew Del Negro. "Thank goodness for sassy Sofia Vergara, whose chaotic former Colombian beauty queen and drug lord's widow is not only gorgeous to look at, but is a riot every second she is on screen," says Louise.

Competition winners:
