Win Brand New Day on DVD!

Brand New Day DVD

It’s Brand New Day, out from Fox on DVD. And here’s what they have to say for themselves:

Loosely based on one of Australia’s most treasured musicals, BRAND NEW DAY is a charming music-driven romantic comedy in the tradition of Mamma Mia! and “Glee.” This foot-stomping tour-de-force centering on the romantic adventures of a young couple set against the spectacularly beautiful Australian landscape follows Aboriginal teenager Willie, as he runs away from boarding school back to his home town of Broome to reunite with his girlfriend Rosie. During his adventure, he encounters ‘Uncle’ Tadpole—a benevolent but crazy drunkard—and a couple of traveling hippies as he maneuvers across country trying to outrun his boarding school’s headmaster Father Benedictus (Geoffrey Rush) who is closing in on his tail. As Willie gets closer and closer to home he learns about friendship, family, and love in a film that literally burst with unbridled energy and fun. Winner of multiple film festival awards including an Official Selection at Sundance Film Festival, BRAND NEW DAY features a fantastic young cast of Australian actors and performers including newcomer Rocky McKenzie, pop singer and “Australian Idol” runner-up Jessica Mauboy, film and television star Ernie Dingo and up-and-coming singer/songwriter Missy Higgins.

But soon the hunter becomes the hunted, and now the legendary warrior must wage a fierce, all-out battle against a renegade gang of outlaws and pack of murderous assassins from his own past.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) – Movie Review

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Poster

Written by: Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio, based on a story by Stuart Beattie, Elliott, Rossio & Jay Wolpert, which was based in turn on the Walt Disney theme park ride
Directed by: Gore Verbinski
Starring: Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush, Keira Knightley, Jonathan Pryce

My Advice: Matinee.

Will Turner (Bloom) has had an interesting life. As a young boy, he was spared from the ocean by Governor Swann (Pryce) and his daughter after the ship he was travelling on had been kagged by pirates. He’s grown up to become the apprentice who actually knows more about smithy than the actual smith, and also to have a tremendous thing for the girl who spotted him and had him pulled from the sea–who has grown up to be Natalie Portman clone Keira Knightley. Trouble is, he is seen as an apprentice smith and beneath the governor’s daughter. Instead, the new commodore (Jack Davenport) is seen as a better suitor. Ah, but there’s a snag you see: Knightley, whose character name is actually Elizabeth, took a gold amulet from around Will’s neck after his rescue. She’s kept it all these years and through circumstances beyond her control, it sends out a call…one that will bring a cadre of cursed pirates out of legend and after her hide.
