Some things I like and dislike about Australia (the film)
- Over-promoted to heck and back.
You just know it’s gotta be a dog of film with this much promotion.
- It’s too long at three hours.
A three-hour click flick, ummm, no thanks.
- Baz Luhrman?!?
What has Baz actually done of note, and more-importantly, box office success?
Strictly Ballroom, 12 Million USD
Romeo and Juliet, 46 Million USD
Moulin Rouge, 57 Million USD
So, Moulin Rouge has been his only successful film to date.
- Does not have Russell Crowe
Baz made a wise decision dropping our “Russ” from the role.
- Darwin Bombings
People will learn about the Darwin Bombings.
- Nicole Kidman
Nicole has gone from an ironing-board figure, to a figure with substance.
