Vice - A potentially promising film buried under confusion and noise
VICE
A potentially promising film buried under confusion and noise
‘Vice’ is a film where all the pieces don’t fit together right. In an awards season more full of disappointments than surprises, the failure of ‘Vice’ is just another to add to the pile.
The Favourite - A delicious work of magnificent insanity
THE FAVOURITE
A delicious work of magnificent insanity
There really is no way to prepare yourself for this film. It’s insane and sincere, vicious and heartfelt, thunderous and mournful. No one, including the audience, comes out of this without bruises.
Colette - The myth, The legend, The Claudine
COLETTE
The myth, The legend, The Claudine
While a wonderful and gloriously rich film which also serves as hauntingly modern in subject, feminist and queer themes, this extraordinary woman's story has been told rather tamely.
Bumblebee - A Transfomers movie... with heart?! Tres scandaleux!
BUMBLEBEE
A Transfomers movie... with heart?! Tres scandaleux!
‘Bumblebee’ is brimming with sincerity and heart, and turns out to be pretty good! The bar in the 'Transformers' series was pretty low, but at least it’s an improvement.

Eighth Grade - An insightfully honest portrayal of youth
EIGHTH GRADE
An insightfully honest portrayal of youth
This is a film about growing up, and the gruelling moments it takes to get there. The story’s relatability, regardless of age or gender, is its most powerful weapon.
Mary Poppins Returns - Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious-ish
MARY POPPINS RETURNS
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious-ish
With strong direction, an almighty cast and good songs, it's fun for the whole family. While that may be satisfactory for many, where it exceeds in heart it overcompensates for a substantive drawback.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - An amazing love letter to our friendly neighbourhood wall-crawler
SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE
An amazing love letter to our friendly neighbourhood wall-crawler
Its crowning achievement is just how beautifully it is a testament to the strange and enchanting lore of the Spider-Man lore. It’s the film Spidey fans will fall in love with.
Ralph Breaks The Internet - He said he was gonna wreck it, and he did
RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET
He said he was gonna wreck it, and he did
There are some laughs and the animation is just as great as the first film, but no new ground is covered and it comes off as painfully average... and about 20 minutes too long.
The Front Runner - A tone-deaf look at what could have been
THE FRONT RUNNER
A tone-deaf look at what could have been
Five years ago, ‘The Front Runner’ could have been a standout, but today it just comes off as tone deaf. Well made, but tone deaf.
The Madness of George III - Presented by National Theatre Live
THE MADNESS OF GEORGE III
Presented by National Theatre Live
This is a play of the kind of scale we can’t see in Australia, so this NT Live screening offers us a rare opportunity to see the play at all, bolstered by a tremendous performance from Mark Gatiss.
Peppermint - We and Jennifer Garner deserve better
PEPPERMINT
We and Jennifer Garner deserve better
There are simply too many potential actions set pieces here that are underplayed or glossed over. We expected more here.
Climax - An all-dancing, drug-fuelled nightmare
CLIMAX
An all-dancing, drug-fuelled nightmare
Director Gaspar Noé captures the group’s feverous plunge into brutality and psychotic inhumanity with an intimate, glazed immediacy, as the film unfolds in a series of long, gliding shots.
