Okay, this is sounding more like a "Titanic" redo! A romantic epic plagued by production problems. But I adore director Baz Luhrmann and I'm a sucker for romantic epics, plus I think the pairing of Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman is fantastic, so, just like "Titanic," I hope the film "Australia" will shatter box-office records, provided, that the movie is outstanding just like James Cameron's sinking boat epic!
What are the problems? Here's your litany (props to Guardian UK for info):
1. Russell Crowe who originally agreed to fill Jackman's role pulled out.
2. Filming was delayed by the worst weather in Western Australia.
3. Outbreak of equine flu
But now, one of the film's biggest controversies is the changing of its ending, from sad, to happy!
I, of course, will keep my opinions to myself until I see the finished cut, but the original "sad" ending, where Jackman died, is creating some drama!
According to the Guardian:
The decision was made after negative responses to the movie's initial cut at test screenings.
One reviewer said: "There is no reason to kill off Wolvie [Jackman played Wolverine in the X-Men trilogy]."
Apart from sparing the audience the extra cost of tissues, the studio apparently felt that a more uplifting ending would spell greater success at the box office.
Really? Well there are some angry fans who are questioning Luhrmann's integrity? One of them even said, "Baz clearly has no control of his film, or no ethics when it comes to putting the story he wanted to tell to the screen."
Well, the film opens in the US on Nov. 26th, so let's all reserve our judgment until then!

First, we have "Kung Fu Panda," a fun, entertaining film, whose message may be lifted from a fortune cookie, but still still rollickingly good!
Check my written review here.
Watch my movie review here.
Then, we also have "Hellboy 2: The Golden Army." I included this film as one of the best super hero films of all time! It's better than the original.
Plus, director Guillermo Del Toro is amazing!
Check out my interviews with Mister Guillermo and the rest of the cast here.

It's really great to have Will Smith as your dad! Smith, who's co-producing a new version of the 1984 "The Karate Kid" offered the title role to....his son Jaden!
But that doesn't discount the talents of 10-year old Mister Jaden who eclipsed his own dad in the acting department in their first film together, "Pursuit of Happyness."
But the filmmakers must be able to explain why the reboot will now feature a much younger lead. You may remember Ralph Maccio in the original as a bullied kid who teamed up with Pat Morita (Mr. Miyagi) to fight his tormentors.
The best part of the franchise? It brought us Elizabeth Shue and Hillary Swank!
Well, the new script, according to Variety, will feature the bully theme from the original, but this time, the film will be set in exotic locales like Beijing and other cities!
Sorta like "Kung Fu Panda" meets "The Karate Kid."
Jaden will be next seen in December's "The Day the Earth Stood Still" and is a real-life martial arts practitioner!
Oh okay, that's his research
