When it comes to the ocean, nothing quite terrifies us measly humans like a great white shark. Jaws is still the best and Deep Blue Sea held its own but beyond that this monster of the deep has had some rather pitiful cinematic representations. In 2012, the Land Down Under in conjunction with the Lion City sought to remedy this terrible Hollywood failing, with a shark tale that turns out not half bad.
As I understand it, there’s a genre of young adult dystopian fiction which sees teenagers or children dealing with issues and stuff in post-apocalyptic or distressing settings of some description. The ‘Tomorrow’ series, by Australian author John Marsden, is one example. Tomorrow, When The War Began is the first in this series, and it’s now a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE. Or a quietly released DVD.
