Before you read: Where applicable, I will be putting content warnings in reviews, but whiting-out ones that I consider to be spoilers. If you are concerned about possible content warnings more than spoilers, highlight the white text at your own risk! If you are not overly concerned about content warnings but worried about spoilers, do not highlight the white text. Easy!

PLEASE ALSO NOTE that I am just one person who has her own biases, so I may have missed some content warnings on account of simply not even thinking about them, or not having seen the movie in so long I forgot about it. If that happens at any point, please feel free to drop me a line. Additionally, being both white and cis, I'm aware I am not an authority on racism or trans issues. If I've overlooked anything or overstepped my bounds in any of these reviews, please do tell me.

Nothing expressed here is fact except the parts I have labeled "movie synopsis." Everything else is opinion. I have a lot of yelly, Capital F Feelings about things, but at the end of the day I'm just one person. Take everything I say with a grain of salt. I'm no media critic. If you have a wildly differing view of a movie from mine, that's fine! In fact, please sound off if you have differing opinions in the comments, and maybe we can have a discussion about it! I occasionally enjoy being proven wrong about things. (No, that's a lie. I hate being proven wrong about things, but it's probably good for me. Or something.)

PLEASE NOTE THE TITLE OF THIS POST. It would probably be better titled as "Stuff What I Personally Like." This is not an unbiased review post of all Australian media ever. Basically: if you trust my taste and opinion on things, you will probably like the things on this list! If we have wildly differing tastes, you will probably not. Simple. I AM NOT AN AUTHORITY ON AUSTRALIAN FILM, NOR DO I WORK FOR THE FILM INDUSTRY. I AM JUST AN AUSTRALIAN. WHO LIKES STUFF. That's all!

If you have not noticed by now, I am a wordy motherfucker who likes the sound of my own voice and has trouble being both concise and coherent at the best of times. So sorry, not sorry. Strap yourselves in and buckle up motherfuckers, because this is going to be a long-ass post. Hope you like word-vomit.

As a final aside, if you do decide to watch any of these films and subsequently enjoy them, I hope that you'll leave a comment or hit me up on plurk (exclamationmarks) or gchat (athousandsmiles) or tumblr (emirin or cassaru) or twitter (ecphonemes) somewhere to tell me your thoughts!! I LOVE seeing/reading people's reactions to things. ALWAYS. Even when they're not always good!

Right! Now that that's all cleared up, without further ado:ONTO THE MOVIES. )
