The Dressmaker (Nov 2015) - it was good. Kate's accent is excellent. Good story. Beautifully shot and costumed, funny and quirky yet appropriately depressing in parts (it is an Australian film afterall). The only thing is the age thing; liam hemsworth is clearly too young to be playing a person that kate's character went to school with and since that it kind of key to the story it interferes with the viewing experience. 3.5 stars

Insidious - one super scary movie.  I prefer horror movies like this one that doesn't resort to all kinds of gore.  It just relies on good storytelling.
