'The Great Gatsby': Movie Review

Watching 'The Great Gatsby' is a visual treat.

Apart from the obvious assault on the senses - it's in 3D, and watching the kaleidoscope of madness in high def is simply glorious - it's quite simply a devastatingly beautiful film to inhale.

And take it all in I did. Every detail was noted and every prop noticed (although I'd likely have to watch it again... and again, to fully appreciate every last pearl, every single floral arrangement), and while this film is distinctly Baz Luhrmann, it has his wife Catherine Martin and her talent all over it.

Catherine is the creative brains behind 'Gatsby' and it shows.

From the Prada collaboration which resulted in impeccably-beaded frocks, to the Tiffany & Co swoon-worthy pieces, to the Waterford crystal glasses, each and every scene is a dream for the detail-obsessed.

Hardcore film critics will dissect every scene, question the authenticity of the dialogue (which, of course, comes courtesy of the F. Scott Fitzgerald book of the same name).

It doesn't matter if you haven't read the book (I did, as many did, in high school).

You can enjoy the epic adventure without knowing the storyline... you're brought up to speed pretty darn rapidly.

Indeed, the first part of the movie gets the intros out the way quick-smart, and immerses us into Jay Gatsby's world.

And what a world it is: opulent, brash, loud, colourful, mad and... an abbreviation that could have been coined for this very film: OTT!

Those who know the book, know it's a story about morality and class distinctions and being authentic. At the beginning of the film, Baz is determined to set a frenetic pace. And he does. And it just works.

The party sequences at the Gatsby residence are something to behold: think an explosion of colourful characters and a gazillion shades of spectacular.

And then there's the slew of acting talent to behold.

For me, standouts are Joel Edgerton as Tom Buchanan, and Australian relative newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker, who is breathtakingly beautiful and incredibly talented. Each time both are on screen I just can't take my eyes off them.

And Leo, as Jay Gatsby: measured and in a role that is wonderfully executed, his standout scenes towards the end of the movie are something to appreciate. Carey Mulligan is all alabaster-skinned perfection, and is mesmerising to watch, especially in the scenes that require her to dig deep emotionally.

Standouts too are Isla Fisher, and a brief role for Vince Colosimo. And, Australian performer Brendan Mclean as Klipspringer. Tobey Maguire stars as Nick Carraway, and while initially he seems an odd casting, he delivers the goods as his role gets meatier and more demanding as the story progresses.

All in all, the heart and soul poured into this several-years-long project is all there on display to be appreciated by moviegoers. Every frame is an absolute masterpiece.

And then there's the soundtrack: think Jay Z, Beyonce, Lana Del Rey, Will.i.am, Gotye, Fergie, Sia, and more. The budget was obviously big also for the music.

Perhaps the biggest gripe aficionados of the book will have is how the book should be best interpreted on screen.

And there will be those who will question if the film has heart and depth, but then again... neither did the characters portrayed in the movie. They're intentionally and deliciously shallow and superficial.

A film like this has to be polarisingl I liken it to the same kind of 'confusion' Baz's earlier flick 'Romeo & Juliet caused: was it true to Shakespeare? How can a thoroughly modern take on prose so old actually work on screen?

But work it did, and has stood the test of time. You could watch 'Romeo & Juliet' today and it'd still be as edgy and elegant as it was when it was first released.

The same can be said for the modern masterpiece that is 'Gatsby': I truly believe Baz's vision will be appreciated more as time goes on, and with each watch of this epic cinematic triumph.

'The Great Gatsy' is unmissable cinema. See it now. For a tasty morsel, here is the trailer.

'The Great Gatsby' opens in Australia on May 30.

Eddie McGuire: Give the guy a break, or an inexcusable gaffe? Adam Goodes, AFL and the racism debate

The topic which is being hotly debated today - and for the past few days - is the issue of racism, the AFL, Adam Goodes, Eddie McGuire and the 13 year old girl who called Adam an "ape" (gosh, that is grating to even repeat).

While I have been following the story since it began - I found myself aghast watching the powerful footage of Adam pointing out the girl at the game, subsequently having her removed from the game - the happenings of the past 24 hours are pretty hard to ignore.

A piece in Radio Today says we should leave Eddie alone. The writer, Brad March, a former CEO at the Austereo Network - says:

"With 24 hour news coverage on television and cable plus the internet delivering constant updates via news sites, search engines, Twitter, Facebook and other social media these 'gaffes' take on a life of their own and can get blown out of proportion.

"I'm sure there was no malicious 'intention' to hurt or harm anyone in both of these cases.

Anyway under the circumstances - well handled Ed."

You have to agree (well, you don't have to) that Eddie has gone to great lengths to apologise. What he said was absurd and uncalled for and yes, a racist comment. But is he a racist person? Is this a consistent 'thing' for him? He is said to have been heavily involved in raising awareness around the indigenous community in the past, and at the press conference he called yesterday, Eddie said it was a ''slip of a tongue'' and ''it burns me to the core''. He said he understood if indigenous players questioned his view on equality, but said this had been a ''hallmark of his presidency'' and it was ''a cause that I live for''.

''I am not a racist and because I have done a lot of things in the past and I will continue to fight for the cause of equality in Australia,'' he said.

In regards to calls for his resignation, he said: ''People don't resign because they make a slip of the tongue. It's as simple as that. If I stood up because I was racially vilifying somebody, not only should I be resigning, I should be sacked. I let myself down because I had a slip of the tongue. It was as simple as that but the ramifications are greater than that," added Eddie, who had spent Tuesday night at an indigenous-related event.

What upsets me most of all in this entire incident is how Adam is feeling right now. The talented, much-awarded and lauded AFL player has been subjected to insults galore in the past few days. Imagine how he is feeling? Intended or not, these insults hurt, and I don't believe any of us have the right to tell him how he should be feeling (comments like 'harden up' annoy me no end).

Another thing that upsets me - and I really examined the footage last night - is that the young girl who sparked this racial controversy in the first place was shown to be yelling out "ape" straight after her grandmother (sitting next to her) yells something out to Adam. What kind of example is this? She is a 13 year old child; a teen by defintion, but so obviously young in understanding protocol  and manners and basic etiquette. And so, she'll simply copy what she sees.

As the girl is escorted away, she throws her blanket on top of her grandma's head and leaves with security. At the risk of sounding like an oldie... geez, have some respect for those around you, girl!

What do you think of the whole thing?

'Paper Giants: Magazine Wars' on ABC1. Plus, real-life story by Kasey Drayton

The highly anticipated TV series 'Paper Giants: Magazine Wars' will be starting this Sunday June 2 on ABC1. It stars Rachel Griffiths as Dulcie Boling and Mandy McElhinney as Nene King, below:

It tells the story of the golden years of the glossies, of the publishing 'battle' waged by Nene King and Dulcie Boling to make their publication the number one seller in Australia.

The year was 1987, so expect lots of fabulous '80s referencing in the two-part series like big, teased hair and massive shoulder pads. The Royals were still together and only showed hints of the dysfunction to come.

It was a time of publishing drama, as flamboyant deputy editor Nene King storms out of New Idea magazine to become editor of rival Woman's Day magazine, and is determined to overthrow the so-called 'queen of women's magazines', Dulcie Boling. 

The public start to lap up the excesses and flamboyant exclusives, and celebrities start to really know how to play the game, learning to exploit the magazines they claim to despise (this sneaky little practice continues today, of course, with stars staging paparazzi shots for their benefit). Soon, even the once untouchable topic of the Royals - Charles and Diana, Fergie and Andrew -  are devoured by a hungry media and curious public,and nothing is sacred anymore.

Here is the trailer:

My good friend Kasey Drayton who worked at photo agency BIG Pictures for 15 years tells of her interactions with Nene King, as she reflects fondly about the good ol' days in publishing.

"Nene had a chart on her door with an arrow. It was a "come in, stay away, don't fucking think about it" mood indicator. It was very funny. Most of the time it varied from 'come in', to 'don't fucking think about it.' Nene was very loud, and very much a presence in the office," says Kasey. "I really like Nene - she was always so lovely to me."

"The Woman's Day picture desk was next door to her office, and I used to go in once or twice into see the girls there. We had hard copy photos and trannies (transparencies) we lugged into the magazine offices."

Yes, that's right... the ol' trannies instead of jpegs we're used to today! I recall working with bromides when I started at Cumberland Newspapers in 1994... a story for another time.

Continues Kasey: "One day, I was telling them how I had colonics and Nene overheard. She yelled out from her office, "Hey you, come here and tell me all about colonics!"

"So I did… after that I was called the "colonic girl". She was truly one of a kind. She really was a whirlwind in the office - a real presence and everyone I dealt with loved her."

When Kasey started in journalism and picture editing, they had... TYPEWRITERS! In fact, when Kasey and her co-workers got their first computers, Kasey managed to delete the entire hard drive on hers. And yes, it was the era of smoking in the office, and non-smokers were bunched in with puffers and overflowing ashtrays, and it was deemed completely acceptable.

The series will show all the cut-throat madness of that era and will no doubt have others who lived through it, just as Kasey did, reminiscing about how it all used to be.

Paper Giants: Magazine Wars premieres Sunday June 2 at 8.30pm on ABC1 and is a two-part series.
Actors playing Kerry Packer and Nene King, Dulcie Boling and Rupert Murdoch

Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu And Delta Goodrem Perform Bayini: 'The Voice' Australia

This could be the most beautiful song I have seen and heard on 'The Voice' Australia... ever.

The duet last night - the song was called 'Bayini' - sung by Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu and Delta Goodrem was sublime, haunting, beautiful.


The song was performed to mark Reconciliation Week, and I thought it was a fitting and incredibly moving tribute.

Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu is an exceptional human being with an incredible talent. Born blind, he have never learned Braille, and goes through life unassisted (no guide dog or cane). He speaks only a few words of English, although he sings stories of his land in both languages (Gälpu, Gumatj or Djambarrpuynu, all Yolŋu Matha) and English. He was formerly with ARIA award winning band Yothu Yindi, and he is now with Saltwater Band.

He plays drums, keyboards, guitar and didgeridoo, but it's his singing voice that is pure heaven, and has critics raving. He is in Sydney now performing at the Vivid Sydney festival.

UPDATED: this ethereal, beautiful song is now available on i-Tunes. Click here to buy.

Money from each sale of the single will be donated to the wonderful work of the Gurrumul Yunupingu Foundation.

'What Would Ryan Lochte Do': Ryan's Interview With Josie's Juice

Do you know who Ryan Lochte is?

Australians, you're about to find out!

In this new reality show called 'What Would Ryan Lochte Do'?, Ryan stars as himself... and who is he, exactly?

Well, he is an Olympian swimmer and medallist... who has now been signed up to his own E! channel show.

Here is Ryan (You. Are. Welcome).

Here, Ryan Lochte answers some questions just for Josie's Juice.

Josie's Juice: Okay, so how does an Olympian score a reality show? How did the whole process come about?

Ryan Lochte: Well, during the London Games, swimming was hugely popular – more so than other other sport uit seems. But when the Olympics are over, people lose interest in the sport. I knew I wanted to make swimming bigger than it is, so when I was approached about a reality show, I thought, what better way to highlight the sport?!

Josie's Juice: Tell me what the series will show you doing – what are some of the things viewers can look forward to?

Ryan Lochte: Of course training for Rio is a huge part of the show and the biggest reason why I wanted to do a reality show, but swimming does not define me. So you will see me going out on dates, partying with my friends, and spending time with my crazy, amazing family. The first day of shooting, something crazy happened and I had forgotten the camera was there so I looked at the producer and said, “Did you just see that!?!” and I wanted to start over. He was like, “No, no, keep going.” Ultimately, I want to bring swimming into everyone’s living rooms, on more than just a “once every four years” basis. It’s the most-watched sport in the Summer Games, yet we only get it once every four years. What’s up with that? Why can’t it be like the NFL, NBA, MLB?

Did you get used to cameras following you around? What was the weirdest situation you found yourself in while they were filming?

Ryan Lochte: My favourite moment on the show was when I was able to give my mother a car; that takes the cake! She’s the best, and deserves everything. So that was really cool for me.

Josie's Juice: Do you see yourself having a continuing career in TV?

Ryan Lochte: I hadn’t thought about having my own reality show until recently so who knows. It’s a great way to increase swimming’s profile in general!

Are you single? If so, are you dating and who is your dream girl? And who is your celebrity crush?

Ryan Lochte: You see me dating on the show. My ideal woman is someone who isn’t afraid to be herself. I like girls who really don’t care what other people are thinking, girls who are a little goofy. I think that’s sexy. Turn-offs: smokers. Celebrity crush: Jennifer Lawrence. I was watching “Silver Linings Playbook” and was like, “Damn, she’s sexy!”

Where to now for your swimming career – what’s next on the agenda?

Ryan Lochte: There are so many possibilities out there that I can’t wait to look into, but for now I am focused on the next Olympic Games.

After winning swimming Olympic medals at the 2012 London Games, Ryan became known as party boy, and went on to design his own line of over-the-top sneakers. This new E! six-part series gives viewers an exclusive look into the superstar athlete’s life as he prepares for the Rio games in 2016 while building his fashion line, making media appearances, dealing with his unconventional family and, always on the hunt for "the one."

Twenty eight year old Lochte proves that there is lots he would do for the camera, and often punctuates it with his signature phrase, “Jeah!”

While swimming is his first passion, the swimmer’s design aspirations and his huge collection of shoes – 150 pairs of sneakers to be exact - comes a close second.

"Lochteisms" have become 'legend' in the US, and he elicits laughter... often, he doesn't even know they're having a playful dig, though he doesn't seem to mind at all.

“What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” premieres Tuesday, May 28th at 9pm only on E! Look for repeats each week on E!, available in Australia on Foxtel.

'We're The Millers': trailer and movie poster

This just in: the trailer for the new movie 'We're The Millers'. Yes... It's the one with Jennifer Aniston as a stripper. With a rockin' bod. Watch:

Here is the international movie poster:

In the upcoming movie, David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and "soccer moms".

Preferring to keep a low profile, he instead tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of punks. As you do. They steal his drug stash and his cash, leaving him in debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms - how I love this actor... he's 'Stu' from 'The Hangover' trilogy).

In order to wipe the slate clean, David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad’s latest shipment in from Mexico (of course!). with his neighbours - stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston) and wannabe customer Kenny (Will Poulter), and streetwise teen Casey (Emma Roberts - yes, Julia's niece), he devises a foolproof plan which goes something like this: a fake wife, two pretend kids and a new RV, the “Millers” head south of the border for a Fourth of July weekend that ends with... well, you'll have to guess that ending...

We're the Millers will be released on August 15. 

Michelle Bridges and Steve 'The Commando' Willis: Who Magazine + Radio Interview

Following weeks of speculation about her relationship with Steve “The Commando” Willis, The Biggest Loser star Michelle Bridges has spoken exclusively to WHO magazine to set the record straight. Here is the cover of the issue, just out today:

Denying she had an affair, Bridges speaks candidly for the first time about the end of her nine-year marriage to her “amazing” business partner Bill Moore, the truth about how her new romance with Willis began, and where she hopes it will lead. “It’s developed since both of us have separated from our partners,” the celebrity trainer from 'The Biggest Loser' revealed. “We needed some private space before we went public. We wanted time to explore how we both feel, and we wanted to protect our family and friends around us,” she said.

Listen to the audio from her radio interview this AM, with Kyle and Jackie O:

Also in the mag, a story on Brad Pitt and how he and Angelina have leaned on each other during their seven-year relationship, especially during her recent double mastectomy and recovery. “Brad did everything he could to keep things secret and protect Angie,” a family insider tells Who. “They treat each chapter as the next leg on their journey.”

Also in this week's edition, a story on why Robert Pattinson ended his relationship Kristen Stewart; it was reported this week that Robert moved his belongings out of the couple’s Los Angeles home and headed out on the town, leaving his Twilight co-star “depressed” and alone.

Hazel Hawke Dies: Leigh Sales Interview With Sue Pieters-Hawke

In news just in, Hazel Hawke - the ex-wife of former Australian prime minister - has died.

She was age 83.

Hazel Hawke AO (born 20 July 1929) was the former wife of Bob Hawke, Prime Minister of Australia from 1983-91. They divorced in 1995.

Hazel worked in social policy areas, and was a talented amateur pianist, as well as a patron of the arts. After she was diagnosed with dementia, she made public appearances in order to raise awareness of the disease and surrounding issues.

In more recent years, she was placed in high-level nursing home care.

She had four children (including Robert junior, deceased).

On 3 November 2003, the ABC aired an episode of Australian Story in which Hawke publicly revealed that she was suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
Here Hazel's daughter Susan Pieters-Hawke is interviewed by ABC's Leigh Sales, about Sue's book Hazel's Journey: A personal experience of Alzheimer's. The clip shows what Hazel's daughter thought of her beloved mother:

Sue's book describes the previous decade of Hawke's life and the onset of Alzheimer's. At the book launch on 1 November 2004, Pieters-Hawke revealed that her mother had reached the mid-stages of the disease and was now suffering from quite severe short-term memory loss. That year the Hazel Hawke Dementia and Care Fund was established.

Here is a clip Hazel and Bob recorded for a drugs and alcohol community service announcement:

'The Hangover III' - Red Carpet and Review

'The Hangover III' premiere happened in LA overnight and the stars were all out in force.

First, let's talk about Bradley Cooper. He attended. Okay, that's all I had to say about that. His mere presence is swoon-worthy.

Moving on from Bradley and my fixation with him (and his hair! Although his hair should not have been trimmed for the red carpet, just sayin'), 'Mr Chow' and his real-life wife, and 'Alan' and 'Stu and his screen wife, Heather Graham and the rest of the cast attended. Scroll down for the photos:

Justin Bartha, who plays Doug

Jamie Chung, who plays Stu's wife

Bradley Cooper's screen wife Gillian Vigman

Ken Jeong (Mr Chow) and his real-life wife
Lucky fans hanging with Bradley at the premiere

Ed Helms ('Stu'), the prankster
And so, the movie. What's it like? First, here's the trailer.

There are certain scenes that are classic 'Hangover'. Caesar's Palace. Mr Chow. Girls. I'll leave the rest up to your imagination, but suffice to say, the ensuing and preceding scenes are as mad as you expect. And quite cover-your-eyes compelling (I am someone who gets easily spooked when someone is about to, you know, get killed).

Doug... poor ol' Doug gets the raw end of the stick, just as he did in the original 'Hangover'.

And then there's Melissa McCarthy. She plays the accidental love interest for Alan... and it's a match made is quirk-ville heaven. It's loads of fun watching these two in their scenes.

Some early jokes between the boys are rather flat, and you hope it picks up. And it does. (In fact, I found there were several, laugh out loud-ridic one liners that were very amusing). The storyline is clever and involved, and while a tad far-fetched - is as true 'Hangover' style - there are surprises and literal cliffhangers to keep you involved right until the end.

And it is THE END, as all the movie posters attest, and all the actors have said in their promo interviews. It's director Todd Phillips's final swan song for his 'rat pack', and it has been a fun ride, one that I will watch each time it's repeated on pay- or commercial TV.

Will you go to see the movie? 'The Hangover III' It starts screening in Australia from Thursday May 23.
