Playing with Fire - Put out this flaming mess
FEATURE
PLAYING WITH FIRE
While the film does have the potential to be fun, what was unexpected was just how bland it is. Although John Cena is charismatic as hell, the rest of the film isn’t that hot.

FINDING FARIDEH
An emotional & moving documentary for Iran's Oscar submission

What Will Become Us - The man behind an iconic Australian brand
WHAT WILL BECOME US
The man behind an iconic Australian brand
An emotional and absorbing story that works to humanise a billionaire. Australian audiences won’t look at the familiar Westfield logo in the same light after watching this documentary.
Children of the Sea - Sunk by a soggy script
CHILDREN OF THE SEA
Sunk by a soggy script
This film epitomises the risk that filmmakers take with adapting a long-running or ongoing manga - a vast amount of material has to be peeled back to the core essentials..
The Queen's Corgi - Barking up the wrong tree
THE QUEEN'S CORGI
Barking up the wrong tree
This is one film to skip if you’re looking for an entertaining kids film. Definitely not one that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Freaks - A post-apocalyptic sci-fi mystery

A post-apocalyptic sci-fi mystery
Win one of five copies of 'Freaks' on DVD.

The Truth - A well-intentioned trip down a well-worn path
THE TRUTH
A well-intentioned trip down a well-worn path
If ‘Shoplifters’ was a beautifully-crafted painting, this would be stick figure doodles. Catherine Deneuve gives the best performance, with Juliette Binoche and Ethan Hawke criminally underutilised.

Ask Dr Ruth - A documentary on 90th birthday parties, Nazi Germany and sex
ASK DR RUTH
A documentary on 90th birthday parties, Nazi Germany and sex
Dr Ruth is so much more than just a 90-year-old with the big balls to talk about sex. This is the story of a strong woman who finally gains recognition for her long service to society.
The Wild Goose Lake - Supremely stylish neon-noir
THE WILD GOOSE LAKE
Supremely stylish neon-noir
Owing a debt to Nicolas Winding Refn, Diao Yinan’s sophomore feature may be little more than an exercise in style, but it’s certainly a dazzling and mythic one.
Standing Up For Sunny - A comedy without the comedy but very sweet
STANDING UP FOR SUNNY
A comedy without the comedy but very sweet
Despite its many flaws, the film is very sweet and adorable and pushes some great messages about love and self-acceptance. Let's call this one a diamond in the rough.
The Addams Family - They're altogether boring, the Addams Family
THE ADDAMS FAMILY
They're altogether boring, the Addams Family
Yet another bland, boring animated kids film. It isn’t terribly insulting to the Addams legacy because it feels so far removed from it. Don’t waste your time; just show your kids the 90s films.
Love, Antosha - A star taken too soon
LOVE, ANTOSHA
A star taken too soon
It manages to capture the essence, cheek and love Anton Yelchin brought into the world, and the of heartache his passing. It may be a very long time before we see a talent like his again.
Liam Gallagher: As It Was - Half insight, half PR exercise
LIAM GALLAGHER: AS IT WAS
Half insight, half PR exercise
There are scenes that are fascinating and genuinely absorbing and show a vulnerable side of Liam rarely seen in public, but the documentary, unfortunately, morphs into a full-blown hagiography.
Werewolf - Struggling for survival in post-war Poland
WEREWOLF
Struggling for survival in post-war Poland
Combining wartime drama and survival horror instead of merely taking a gruesome premise and throwing it to the wolves, this is a thoughtful, understated and quietly powerful film.
Knives Out - A whodunnit worthy of Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot
KNIVES OUT
A whodunnit worthy of Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot
Mystery fans rejoice: this is an impeccable cinematic achievement, laced with sardonic wit, division and conflict, and of course a perplexing puzzle. This is easily one of the most fun films of 2019.
Frozen 2 - Elsa and Anna return with the magic (mostly) intact
FROZEN 2
Elsa and Anna return with the magic (mostly) intact
It is a pity that the story never finds its feet; a combination of this level of craft and a real ripper of a yarn would have made this a slam-dunk. As it stands, the magic is still there.
The Professor and the Madman - Mel Gibson's dictionary origin story a dry read
THE PROFESSOR AND THE MADMAN
Mel Gibson's dictionary origin story a dry read
The cast - a who's who of British cinema - does an admiral job with the source material they are given, but who would have thought a film about how the dictionary was made would be dull?
Fisherman's Friends - A great catch for a film about friendship and music
FISHERMAN'S FRIENDS
A great catch for a film about friendship and music
If it’s been a long week, a film about a group of unlikely elderly men winning big by doing what they love with the ones they love is exactly what you need. It’s a great story, and needed to be told.
Vivarium - What makes a house a (horrific) home?
VIVARIUM
What makes a house a (horrific) home?
The film explores the perils of suburbia by satirising typical issues and offering up grotesque caricatures of real-life parenting discomforts.
The Operative - Finding the humanity in espionage
THE OPERATIVE
Finding the humanity in espionage
If you’re after a character-focused espionage drama with an emphasis on realism rather than a James Bond-style spy caper, 'The Operative' is worth checking out.
Color Out of Space - A messy fusion of sci-fi, horror and comedy
COLOR OUT OF SPACE
A messy fusion of sci-fi, horror and comedy
Combining the unholy trio of Nicolas Cage, H.P. Lovecraft and Richard Stanley seems like insane brilliance on paper, which is why it’s so disappointing that this film is a bit of a slog.
Suzi Q - Celebrating a female rock icon
SUZI Q
Celebrating a female rock icon
A profile of a versatile, passionate and insatiable performer, who dedicated her life to being on stage, on her own terms. Essential for fans and anyone with an interest in feminism and music.
Official Secrets - Exposing lies at a time of war
OFFICIAL SECRETS
Exposing lies at a time of war
As much as it never quite finds its groove, it’s still an often thrilling and genuinely entertaining film, profiling an important figure in the movement against the Iraq War.
Marriage Story - Simply extraordinary
MARRIAGE STORY
Simply extraordinary
It’s shocking that a film so simple can be so nearly flawless. As an ugly portrait of two flawed people it's never easy to watch, but it is one of the most rewarding experiences in years.
