 The World of Film in Australia - on the Internet Updated Friday May 22, 2020 


For absolutely no reason whatsoever, except your (and our) amusement, Urban Cinefile’s contributor, BRAD GREEN, has again devised some mildly amusing, mind bending lists, a sort of Sillyfile; please take a moment to release some endorphins as Brad anagrams his way through the stars, and even has Shakespeare re-write some famous lines from modern movies: can you pick this one - "Dost thou feel fortune favours thee or dost thou not feel fortune favours thee? That is the question, knave."
