The problems that arise during July 22 will require reflection as you intend to gain mastery
over a situation involving career or an authority figure. Taking a bully's position does not help.
The paperwork that comes with problems during July 22 will have you obsessing over the
smallest details. Clarity and control of a situation is absolutely imperative.
Geminis are best using the trends of July 22 to gain insights into problems, particularly of
ethical or financial situations. You are well positioned to do so.
Someone is being a little heavy-handed during July 22 and this affects you personally. You
may be badgered into listening to something you really don't want to hear.
There's a clearing out process involving work or a domestic situation during July 22. Don't be
too zealous in your actions as you may throw the baby out with the water!
It is easy to become obsessed with something happening in your romantic life or in a situation
affecting a child. Not everything is black and white: reason needs to be exercised.
Important changes are being made around your home or are happening in connection with a
family member during July 22: there's paperwork connected to this.
An overhaul of routines, travel arrangements, communications and vehicles is indicated
during July 22, probably not as a result of choice. Money is being spent on these matters.
The intricacies of financial movement are being examined during July 22, in the wake of
massive financial changes affecting your life. It pays you to be in control of these changes.
Your strength of character is being tested during July 22 as you reach for the attainment of
goals. Challenges may come from another party or simply from the mechanism of the quest.
It's all about responsibilities and the way in which they are handled during July 22. You may
not agree with another viewpoint even though it is a viable way of managing the matter.
When it comes to achieving your objectives there is a rod of steel within strengthening your
resolve during July 22. Language and communications are forceful, reflecting this inner
PLANET OF THE APES
Only hair separates species
Jason Clarke in a scene from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
The big screen
Animal behaviour is the central
premise of Dawn of the Planet of the
Apes and I'm not talking about the
The human population has been
nearly expunged from the planet as a
result of a virus that jumps species
from apes to humans.
Humans and the apes live separate
lives but close to one another. These
are not ordinary apes. They
communicate using sign language
and some, like their leader, Caesar
(Andy Serkis), speak.
Each group tolerates the other until
the humans intrude upon the apes'
territory in order to fix an electrical
generator to ensure continuous power
for the human colony.
Each society mirrors the other.
Human Malcolm and ape Caesar are
willing to trust the other side.
Ape Koba feels antagonism
towards the humans because he bears
the scars of being used in all manner
of painful and cruel lab experiments.
Caesar's dominating personality
and sympathetic attitude to humans
counteracts Koba's aggression.
Koba's human counterpart is Dreyfus,
a military man, who sees the apes as
Conflict ensues as a result of the
all-too-human, and ape,
psychological flaws and emotional
resentments. Fear, mistrust, anger and
misunderstanding prevail on both
The resulting battles show how
betrayal and unreleased hostility
result in mayhem and death.
The humans show their animal
attributes and the apes show they can
It's the extra dimension of
emotions that allows the film to rise
above the predictability that is the
hallmark of sequels. It traverses the
stunning effects and impressive
motion-capture acting to deliver
character and motivation.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
works as a standalone movie as well
as a continuation of the story that
explains how apes become the
dominant species on Planet Earth.
It is one of the best films in the
REACHING FOR THE MOON
Grappling with writer's block,
legendary American poet Elizabeth
Bishop (Miranda Otto) travels from
New York City to Rio de Janeiro in
the 1950s to visit her college friend,
Mary (Tracy Middendorf). Hoping to
find inspiration on Mary's sprawling
estate, Elizabeth winds up with much
more -- a tempestuous relationship
with Mary's bohemian partner,
architect Lota de Macedo Soares
(Gloria Pires). The attraction of two
polar-opposite women has rarely
been so volatile and so erotically
charged on the big screen.
Written by Rolf de Heer and David
Gulpilil, Charlie's Country stars
Gulpilil as Charlie, who is getting
older, and is out of sorts. The
government's intervention is making
life difficult in his remote
community, what with the proper
policing of laws that don't make
much sense, and Charlie's kin
seeming more interested in going
along with things than doing anything
about it. So Charlie takes off to live in
the old way, but in doing so sets off
a chain of events in his life that has
him return to his community
chastened, and somewhat the wiser.
TINKER BELL AND
THE PIRATE FAIRY
When a misunderstood dust-keeper
fairy named Zarina steals Pixie
Hollow's all-important Blue Pixie
Dust, and flies away to join forces
with the pirates of Skull Rock, Tinker
Bell and her fairy friends must
embark on the adventure of a lifetime
to return it to its rightful place.
However, in the midst of their pursuit
of Zarina, Tink's world is turned

Wombat stew served up on stage

Australia in 2010, it played to more
than 90,000 people. In 2014, the
much-loved production tours again to
celebrate 30 years in print.
This simple story of a dingo who
catches a wombat and decides to make
stew from it has been developed into a
musical, complete with blobs of mud,
very fine emu feathers, creepy
crawlies, flies, gumnuts and a big
