Wednesday and Thursday bring an
interesting mix of people and influences

with you. There may be some unpleasant
situation to manage.
There's plenty of work to do during

Wednesday and Thursday have the potential
to be a fabulous time for Aquarians, with

Action is focused on home and property
matters during Wednesday and Thursday,

FILM REVIEW: MAX MAX: FURY ROAD
Max returns in furious ride
Director George Miller returns to the director's chair with Mad Max: Fury Road.
The big screen
George Miller has reignited Mad Max
Every element in the film is
The costumes scream grotesque, the
monstrous war vehicles run on
adrenalin and the mutant characters
are descendants of what could be
loosely called humanoids.
That goes for the central characters,
Mad Max Rockatansky and Imperator
Furiosa. Max almost assumes a back
seat to Furiosa's commanding
The film is raucous, loud,
bloodthirsty and intrusive. What you
see is in your face and what you hear
is in your head.
There is no escaping Fury Road.It
lives up to its name.
Max Rockatansky is captured by
mutant vestiges of humanity to be used
as a living blood bank to sustain the
War Boys, children whose lives are
measured in radioactive half-lives.
When Imperator Furiosa--afierce,
female one-armed driver of Immortan
Joe's War Machine -- rescues Joe's
wives, who are considered nothing
more than breeding stock, and
searches for the mythical Green Place,
an oasis of abundance unspoiled by the
radioactive desolation that eroded the
world into a desolate wasteland, a car
chase begins that envelopes the film.
Although it can be summed up as
one extended car chase, you can easily
find issues such as gender concerns,
personal loss, climate and nuclear
annihilation related to the post-
apocalyptic destruction of the world.
Miller knows the ingredients
required to supercharge the movie and
he delivers with force. Explosions,
violence and the obliteration of
vehicles feature heavily.
I walked out of Fury Road feeling
exhausted. Mad Max and the retinue
of near-human mutants that
accompany him on this ride extract
every ounce of energy from you.
With character names such as
Immortan Joe, Rictus Erectus, Toast
the Knowing and Cheedo the Fragile,
post apocalyptic scenarios have never
been so strangely appealing.
Thiele's classic novel tells eternal message
It's been a treasured Australian classic
for decades but actor Jimi Bani said
Storm Boy was a story with enduring
lessons for today's young people.
The Sydney Theatre Company and
Perth's Barking Gecko Theatre
Company's enchanting stage
adaptation of Colin Thiele's novel
goes on show at the Canberra Theatre
Centre from June 3 to 6.
The production, written by Tom
Holloway and directed by John
Sheedy, tells the story of a boy and his
pelicans with the help of puppetry.
The clever work of puppeteers Phil
Dean Walford and Anthony Mayor,
under Peter Wilson's direction, add a
layer of graceful beauty to the show.
Bani plays Fingerbone Bill -- an
introverted Aboriginal fisherman and
unlikely hero in this tale, set on a
remote beach in South Australia.
The Deadly Award-winning actor
said the improbable friendships which
develop within the piece reminded
audiences of how all we can learn
about ourselves through connecting
with our environment and each other.
"Today's youth what they struggle
with is listening to their elders," he
"There is now a mentality of I
know, I know'.
"Yes there is a struggle to
communicate within the piece but
hopefully the young people watching
relate to Storm Boy and pick up on the
idea that there so many ways to be
heard and seek advice."
