Just Macbeth

This book tells the story of murder, madness and Wizz Fizz.

When Andy, Danny and Lisa find themselves rehearsing a scene from the well know Skakespear play, Macbeth, they soon find themselves back in the eleventh century in Scotland. What is going on? It seems they are actually in the play Macbeth. And why doesn't anyone know what a DVD is?
When Andy/Macbeth finds out he will one day become King of Scotland, he will do anything to make sure he does, even if that means murdering his best friend.

A hilarious twist to the classic Shakespear play, Macbeth. Just another instalment to add to your 'Just' series by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton.

What If?

What if we, were just a fantasy?
Some dream of a world, that was never meant to be?

What if the sun, never came out to sing?
Then how would we know, what tomorow would bring?

What if the stars never came to say goodnight?
And we fell asleep withour a bright shining light?

What if love, was just a dream?
A dull world, that this would seem?

What if?

Big Fish Reveiw

Title: Big Fish

Whats not to love about this modern day tale? By far one of the best I have seen. Action, Comedy, Drama, Romance, these are just some of the genres that come to mind when watching. There is something for everyone to enjoy.
The plot revolves around William Bloom (played by Billy Crudup) trying to come to terms with his weak and dying father, Edward Bloom. (Played by Albert Finney and Ewan McGregor) and having not spoken to each other for nearly three years, William decides to visit his father, who is slowly dieing from the struggles of Cancer. William struggles to learn about his father, a talented soul for telling stories, but filled with anger, William fears these stories are nothing but lies.
It's extraordinary plot and many side stories (all with a purpose) will keep you entertained for hours on end.
Directed by Tim Burton, his style of fiction and out of this world adventures are really shown in 'Big Fish.'
Even if you don't think this is your type of movie, you may be pleasantly surprised.
This larger than life adventure is good for everyone, and I would defiantly recommend it to you.

Now on DVD, and if you enjoy that, grab a copy of the book, written by Daniel Wallace.

European Masters Exhibition - NGV

Today I visited The National Gallery of Victoria to see the European Masters exhibition.

It was very interesting to see paintings that are really famous. (Although, most of them I had never seen or heard of before!)
It's not a huge exhibition, but the paintings are AMAZING! The detail in some are to die for.
Large Canvas + really fine detail = The most amazing painting you will EVER see!
One painting was about the size of the wall, and the detail in the leaves (which were tiny) were sensational.
I would defiantly recommend that you drop what you are doing and go to Melbourne and see the exhibition RIGHT NOW! (Because it is only on between the 19 Jun 2010 - 10 Oct 2010) You do have to pay, but it is worth it. Trust me, if you love art, then you will thank me immensely.
