Goon bags. Baked beans. Eggs. Swearing. It's perfect. And though it's absurd, it's somehow incredibly accurate and reminds me of the Christmases of my childhood. Yikes.
This is a film that absolutely does not pull any punches. Characters are killed unceremoniously, and there's no heroes to be found. This is one heck of a mean-spirited movie.

Pandemonium is all a bit too much. At times I felt like Alex from A Clockwork Orange. Eyes forced open, burping and panicking, as a constant stream of mania spilled into my face.
This week's clip is one that perhaps only fellow Aussies will get a kick out of, because it features none other than John-Michael Howson — a familiar hammy face from Australian television. Howson camps it up something terrible and creates what is probably the movie's cringiest moment.
This discussion between two inmates where they lament the troubles of prison yard love is both hysterical in its outrageous and very Australian dialogue and also strangely touching in an odd, sweary way.
Thomas Jane and John Cusack drive each other hard in Brian Trenchard-Smith’s latest action-comedy Drive Hard.
Adventures in babysitting and baby-snatching from the 1975 Australian telemovie Mama's Gone A-Hunting.

King of Australia, Mark "Jacko" Jackson, screams at the world's shittest tough guys and then magically pulls a chair out of thin air. From Trojan Warrior and your nightmares.
Why would you waste 10 minutes of your life reading a post about Wet and Wild Summer!? Most importantly, why would you waste 95 minutes of your life watching it, like I did? There is one special reason: Christopher Atkins. Or to be exact: Christopher Atkins’ magical face.
