Armaggedon Time – Review

Written and directed by James Gray, and in conjunction with Universal Pictures, Armageddon Time follows the journey of Paul Graff and his family as they chase the American dream. Set in New York City in 1980, the prejudice and troubling behaviours of generations that came before are slowly fading, but

Bros – Review

The romantic comedy genre is ideally a safe, fun experience, and usually is a film that doesn’t have to rewrite the successful formula. Billy Eichner and Nicholas Stoller have teamed up to create their own spin on the formulaic model that both pokes fun at the idea of doing just

Mrs Harris Goes To Paris – Review

Lesley Manville stars as the title character of Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, the latest adaptation based on the popular 1958 novel, Mrs. Arris Goes to Paris, written by Paul Gallico. Set in 1957, Ada Harris works hard as a cleaner in London for two different clients. Despite living a

Black Adam – Review

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been toiling away in the background for 15 years give or take, all with the hopes of making his dream come true of bringing “Black Adam” to the big screen. Produced by Warner Brothers and directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, this electric addition to the DC

7

Halloween Ends – Review

Michael Myers has been an icon in the horror genre for close to 50 years, for better or worse. Equally as prominent is the girl who lived, Laurie Strode, whose rivalry with the masked slasher has consumed the entire town of Haddonfield with fear, death, and despair in the process.

7

Don’t Worry Darling – Review

The second film to be directed by Olivia Wilde, Don’t Worry Darling, is a dive into a problematic utopia. A thrilling premise combines through the story work of Katie Silberman, Casey, and Shane Van Dyke, and looks to unsettle the viewer as a near-perfect paradise begins to unravel before our

7

Ticket to Paradise – Review

In terms of Hollywood royalty, being able to have Julia Roberts or George Clooney by themselves would be enough to pique your interest, let alone having both star together in the same film. Reuniting once again on the silver screen, this time is a romantic comedy, the two parents at

8

Moonage Daydream – Review

‘Moonage Daydream’ directed by Brett Morgen isn’t a movie, it isn’t even a documentary, it’s an experience, a whole total experience. Moonage Daydream is a total symphony of colour, sights and sounds for all your senses. His whole life, David Jones, more famously known as David Bowie, has been an

6.5

Beast – Review

The monster film genre has seen many ferocious beasts grace the silver screen over the course of the film industry. The ones based on real-life animals, however, seem to have resonated the most with audiences as I can comfortably say I avoid the ocean thanks to the likes of ‘Jaws’.

7.5

NOPE – Review

Jordan Peele is back again for the third feature film he has written and directed himself, and this time, on a much larger scale. Known for his riveting and intense work, the movie ‘Nope’ continues the trend, delivering an out-of-the-box thinking thriller with some horror-induced groundwork. Thanks to Universal Pictures,

The Black Phone – Review

There are many things that can induce fear whether it be darkness, a stranger, or maybe even a call from an unknown number. ‘The Black Phone’, a supernatural thriller that combines all the above, has been written and directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Deliver Us

10

The Phantom Of The Open – Review

Walking into the cinema, I wasn’t sure what to expect from ‘The Phantom of the Open’ & I had never heard of Maurice Flitcroft either. The Phantom Of The Open is directed by Craig Roberts and scripted by Paddington 2 screenwriter Simon Farnaby, based on the book he co-wrote with

9

Elvis (2022) – Review

From the moment Elvis first stepped on the scene, a change was set in motion that can still be felt to this day. One man transcended what it meant to be a superstar and became an icon, a king, and a symbol to rally behind. It’s still wild to comprehend

7.5

Jurassic World: Dominion – Review

A definition of dominion is a human’s attempt to control nature. Now imagine having to control nature filled with dinosaurs. This question has been an ethical conundrum since Jurassic Park was released, over five movies and almost 30 years ago in real-time. The final entry to the current trilogy in

9

Downton Abbey: A New Era – Review

It appears that just when we think Downton has graced the screen one last time, we are cordially invited in once again. Following on from the success of the 2019 film adaptation, Downton Abbey, which followed on from the award-winning TV series of the same name, Downtown Abbey: A New

8.5

The Northman – Review

The world over has been the home to many mythologies, each with its own tales, sagas, and stories passed down through generations. There is one tale, however, that has stood against the test of time, been adopted by Shakespeare, and would most likely be the most adopted story of all

7

Ambulance (2022) – Review

Back in 2005, a Danish movie named “Ambulancen” was released to tell the tale of two brothers caught in the middle of a desperate situation. Michael Bay, along with screenplay writer Chris Fadek, have since put their creative minds together to produce the American version, “Ambulance”. While not without gripping

The Bad Guys – Review

The Bad Guys, a collection of kids’ books originally written by fellow Australian, Aaron Balbey, has broken into the big leagues with the brand-new feature film that shares the same name.

9

The Batman (2022) – Review

Gotham City’s masked vigilante has been one of the most notable symbols of pop culture for the better part of 80 years. Bruce Wayne, the Batman, has seen his fair share of revivals, and each one has met with a pang of resistance when they first get announced. Understandable, given

7

Cyrano – Review

The story of Cyrano De Bergerac, a man of immense talents in poetry, music, and swordsmanship, has been told in many different formats over the last 100 years. Originally written by Edmond Rostand as a loose interpretation of Cyrano’s actual life, his tale can be used to evoke so many

WRAP UP: UFC 271: Adesanya Vs Whittaker

Bobby Green def. Nasrat Haqparast via unanimous decision (30-27 x3) Bobby Green and Nasrat Haqparast have a lot of energy as the opening round begins. An accidental swipe/eye poke from Haqparast hinders Green early in the round, but he’s able to recover and continue. Later on, Green almost blatantly pokes

9

King Richard – Review

When I heard there was going to be a biopic film based around Serena and Venus Williams, I was a little surprised to hear the story would focus more on their Father, Richard Williams. What I got to experience, however, was far deeper than any story focused solely on the

8

House of Gucci – Review

Gucci, one of the most notable brands today, for many different reasons, has turned 100 years old as a company this year. From humble beginnings making leather luggage to today’s modern empire that can outfit any given person from head to toe, it is safe to say there would be

Dear Evan Hansen (2021) – Review

Dear Evan Hansen. Three words that will affect the person who wrote them, a family clutching to the idea of them, and an entire generation caught in the wake of the movement caused by them. Inspired by the original Musical of the same name, Universal have adapted the screenplay with

Last Night In Soho – Review

The comforts of the past can be a dangerous place to hide, and this is even more prevalent in Universal’s latest thriller, Last Night in Soho. Known for some classic horror satire comedy hits such as Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, this isn’t Edgar Wright’s first foray into
