By red carpet treatment of course I’m talking about the most prestigious, most famous, most *insert awesome adjective* film awards of the year – the Oscars!
And by Oscars of course I’m talking about being at the venue, not attending the ceremony, but I was lucky enough to be in LA to feel that certain buzz that makes even waiting for a burger at Mickey D’s (that’s cool people talk for Mc Donald’s) exciting.
As for realism, the question to ask is whether a bunch of moderately popular teenagers from the bush could go to war with a semi-professional force and win. Country kids (I am one) are a lot more independent than city kids, and take danger in their stride because they're exposed to it more frequently. It's why they laugh at Townies (don't even get them started on city slickers). Hopefully someone will dirty down the sequels, although it's all good, but.
It's why they can drive before they have pubic hair.
follows the journey of eight high school friends in a remote country town whose lives are suddenly and violently upended by a war that no-one saw coming.
Cut off from their families and their friends, these eight extraordinary teenagers must somehow learn to escape, survive and fight back.
I've read them all, even the ones that John Marsden wrote after he finished writing the series.I’m very happy to say that some aspects of LA are exactly like I imagined.My first look at LA out the airplane window was this: There’s a frikkin PALM TREE to welcome you off the plane! To reaffirm my image of LA there continued to be palm trees everywhere to and including in the street where I was staying.I didn’t entirely get how the story worked, but it was full of hot girls in school uniforms kicking ass… The look and style was visually incredible and the action sequences were mind-blowing!!I subsequently found myself drawing (during acting class – oops) and thought I’d share some Suckerpunch fan art!
