ROCKETMAN REVIEW AVAILABLE IN FROOTY

 

I am proud to announce that I was published in the very first print issue of Frooty magazine. Frooty was founded as an online magazine in 2017 by the Arts/Comedy Editor for Scenestr Jesse Chaffey.

Jesse edits the bulk of my published pieces for Scenestr as well as so many others. He’s rescued me a few times, regularly made my pieces look better, taken on board anything I thought was important to keep and it is a fragment of what he does as an editor working long hours relentlessly. Like all members of staff at Scenestr, he’s talented, hard working and passionate about what he does. The fact he created Frooty the same year he as a recent graduate started as the Arts/Comedy editor for Scenestr speaks volumes and let’s not forget Scenestr has also grown in the same time frame moving into print in Western Australia and Melbourne.

My contribution to Frooty Issue 1 is a review I wrote on page 17 for Rocketman that was originally published online at Scenestr.

ROCKETMAN REVIEW AVAILABLE ON SCENESTR

It was my pleasure to be on assignment for Scenestr magazine again to attend a preview screening of Rocketman on a Saturday evening up at the top of the Myer Centre in town. Karen and I both came from other work with Karen doing well to make it before the screening began.

Rocketman is an interesting film for me, there were some moments that dragged on and felt weren’t not very well thought out. Then there were others that were… well just sublime. The emotional through line of the story is well served, a little boy growing up and feeling unloved and how that led to the addictions that almost killed the man.

It is not a perfect film far from it but it is the kind of film that makes me excited to have others watch it and tell me what they think. Because some things are done so well. I will be interested to hear your thoughts, for mine you can read the review here http://scenestr.com.au/movies-and-tv/rocketman-review-20190529
