Moulin Rouge DVD
Cross La Boheme with Cabaret throw in a little bit of Rent and you might almost begin to describe Baz Luhrmanns visually opulent fastpaced funny heartrending Moulin Rouge. The film which premiered as the opener to the 2001 Cannes Film Festival is a musical set in 1899 Paris at the notorious Montmartre cabaret club the Moulin Rouge. Directed by Baz Luhrmann (William Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet Strictly Ballroom) the movie stars Nicole Kidman as the highkicking courtesan Satine; Ewan McGregor as the sensitive poet Christian; and John Leguizamo as the flamboyant artist and matchmaker ToulouseLautrec. Luhrmanns use of eclectic lighting and saturated colour the fast zooms and quick cuts of his camera and his magnificent costumes and sets perfectly capture the excess and freneticism for which the Moulin Rouge was famous. Beautifully LED by McGregor and Kidman the flawless supporting cast brings to life the culture of belle epoque Paris with magical realism. Above all the anachronistic energetic contemporary soundtrack is what drives Moulin Rouge with popular songs by Lil Kim Christina Aguilera David Bowie and Beck as well as Kidman and McGregor adding their own superb vocals.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory DVD, Chocolate
Who better to bring Roald Dahls adored childrens story to life than the mastermind behind inventive films like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice. From Tim Burtons opening shot against Danny Elfmans eerie score this Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is recognisably darker than the Mel Stuartdirected 1971 version starring Gene Wilder. Though the mysterious chocolate factory has been closed for 15 year it continues to produce and ship candy all over the world. When a contest promises a tour of the plant to the lucky finders of five golden tickets hidden inside wrappers no one is more excited than Charlie Bucket an impoverished boy whose family lives mere steps from the factory. Though he can barely afford even one candy bar fate intervenes and Charlie finds the last golden ticket. Joined at the gates by a group of despicable brats named Veruca Salt Violet Beauregarde Augustus Gloop and Mike Teavee Charlie and his Grandfather venture inside proprietor Willy Wonkas delightful factory for a wild adventure. Each room is a feast for the eyes and more importantly the taste buds a sugarcoated dreamland where everything is edible. One by one however the children meet unfortunate fates until only Charlie remains in the company of Wonka and his curiously small workers the Oompa Loompas.
