New Releases (12/04/12)

There are just two new films opening in Australian cinemas this week - Battleship, Peter Berg's Tranformers-like epic scale action-adventure influenced by Hasbro's classic naval combat game, and The Deep Blue Sea, Terence Davies' adaptation of Terence Ratigan's 1952 play, starring Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston.

Battleship - I am watching Battleship tomorrow night, so check back later in the week for my review.

The Deep Blue Sea - I posted my review earlier, so I won't go into any details about the film. Personally, I didn't like it, though Rachel Weisz was excellent. I find it hard to recommend to anyone not familiar with Terence Davies' filmmaking or Ratigan's stage play, but to help with your decision, here is the trailer:

Weekly Recommendation: Have you see This Must Be The Place yet? Highly recommended.


  1. Slim pickings. Think I'd rather see Battleship than The Deep Blue Sea. Might have to go see Titanic 3D instead of either of these though. I wonder if This Must Be The Place is even on anywhere near me.

    1. I can't recommend either, really. BUT Battleship is more fun. If This Must Be the Place is in town, it's my pick.
