Film (60)

In November 1992 Romper Stomper was released, a film about a gang of Neo-Nazis skinheads, led by then rising star Russell Crowe as Hando, with Daniel Pollock as Davey, his right-hand man. With Cackles (Daniel Wyllie), Bubs (James McKenna), Champ (Eric Mueck) and a handful more making up the numbers in Hando’s gang. Yet the one man that Hando bows down to, as do the rest of the gang, is the older, more brutal and more organised Neo-Nazi skinhead, Magoo, (John Brumpton), a nickname given to him as he wears glasses.

The rom-com has existed in its current state since as early as 1942’s Seven Sweethearts.

Ocean’s Eight Review

Written by
After the limited success of 2016’s all-female Ghostbusters, whose reasonable box office was stifled by its massive production budget of $144 million, it was a brave move to reinvent another much-loved franchise in the same gender-swapping way. Still, that’s what Warner Bros. has done with the latest chapter of the Ocean’s saga, Ocean’s Eight.
