Aussie Open, Camping, and The Fighter.

by Toby Woollaston

I have taken a couple of weeks off. We are spending 4 days in Melbourne (at the Aussie Open – and it’s our 15th wedding anniversary). The following week we will be camping at Tawharanui. As a result I won’t get to write much in the way of cinematic musings over this period let alone see many films.

That said, I did manage to squeak in The Fighter while I was on the plane. A fairly solid film with an absolute standout performance from Christian Bale. He deserved every ounce of that Oscar.
