Oh Hell Yes!! You've probably noticed that i've been getting fully stuck into a lot of Aussie genre classics recently. I can't get enough of them. As featured in the documentary 'Not Quite Hollywood', the 70s and 80s really were a golden era for Australian cinema. While Aussie new wave was sweeping the world with movies like Picnic At Hanging Rock and My Brilliant Career, there was a torrent of genre movies dominating our screens. At the time we couldn't get enough of them but as the years went by, these films died off and were forgotten. Until recently they were generally looked back upon with ridicule... thankfully they're finally getting the recognition they deserve. These are great movies, made well. Tonight I watched Dark Ages. A monster croc creature-feature from 1987. A giant croc starts picking off men and a local preservation officer is tasked with hunting it down. The local aboriginals believe the creature to be spiritual and believe that no man can kill it. John Garret leads the movie and he does a great job. He had quite a screen presence back then. Considering the budget, the croc scenes are done well. One particular scene shows the beast fully crush a small child's head and thats just something films rarely show anymore. This is great fun from a really special time in Aussie cinema's history.
