Comment Of The Week From the Editor Website Update 

From The Editor – 31.12.12

Good morning folks! Well, we’re on the cusp of something big here at fernbyfilms.com! We’ve hinted at it, we’ve teased you over the last six months or so, and now we can finally reveal our plans! No, it’s not world domination (although that would be nice) or any Evil Plan; rather, we’re about to give the site a whole new streamlined look – logo-wise. After having the same logo for almost the entire time this site has been active, it will be no more!

To our Japanese Readers

In light of the weekends events in Japan, I thought I’d take this moment to acknowledge our readers in that part of the world, and to let you know that all of us here at fernbyfilms.com are thinking of you. Like the rest of the world, we’ve been horrified by the images of entire towns, cities and lives being washed away in a torrent of water, or large segments of the population who haven’t been killed suddenly being displaced by a devastating nuclear emergency. It’s times like this that put…

Queensland Floods – A Message To Our Readers

Afternoon folks. Just thought we’d put something up in recognition of those who are suffering at the moment across our great land, particularly in Queensland today, where raging flash-flooding has devastated many low-lying towns (including Toowoomba, Gatton and others) and is set to hit Brisbane any time now. We wanted to let you guys in Qld know we’re thinking of you during this difficult time. News reports are (typically) highlighting the increasing death toll, as well as the utter carnage currently being inflicted on local communities in the southern Queensland…

Our 500th Post – Reflections On Things So Far

Well, talk about a landmark for fernbyfilms.com! We finally reach our 500th post, a milestone that, when we first began a few years ago, we didn’t think we’d ever get to! Ever since we started, waaaay back in December 2007, we’ve tried to be a fair and balanced site on which you can read our opinions on all things film, TV, and entertainment. We’ve had a few dramas and hicccups along the way, we’ve gained and lost some valuable members of our team, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at all times.

Hello all. This week’s comment comes from the film Prime, which screened last night on Channel 9. Starring Meryl Streep and Uma Thurman, the film see’s Thurman dating the son of her speech therapist (Streep) unbeknownst to either of them.

Rafi is unaware that David lives with his grandparents, until the following exchange takes place: Rafi Gardet: David, who are your roommates? Blanch: [calls from upstairs] Is that…

From The Nest – The Secret Squirrel

  I watched My Best Friend’s Girl (2008) the other day, about this guy called Tank, his best mate Dustin and this girl Alexis that they both like. It seemed like it was going to be a fairly predictable romantic comedy, but with a bit of a twist it turned out to be really entertaining, if you can stand all the rude jokes. Tank: How was I suppose to know it was your sister? How was I suppose to know? It was dark, I was drunk and I thought it was…

From The Nest – The Secret Squirrel

War, Inc. (2008) starring John Cusack as some sort of superhero/hitman, Brand Hauser, is entertaining enough.  Every hero needs his flash vehicle with all the bells and whistles. Brand Hauser’s learjet and Humvee have a feature installed named “Guidestar”, a button that is pressed and the voice of Hauser’s alter ego is there to listen to problems, or give directions or advice. Guidestar adds an interesting flavour to the film, and provides some humour and backchat at the best of times. GuideStar: [from Hauser’s Humvee, which has been stripped, put on blocks, and torched…
