My Old Ass -
MY OLD ASS
A coming-of-age delight
A blast of a coming-of-age movie with stellar performances and hilarious comedy. It's sure to speak volumes to the younger generation and is just a perfect cozy film.
I Saw the TV Glow -
I SAW THE TV GLOW
The horror of self-identity
It may disappoint horror fans due to its unconventional approach to genre but for those who connect to it, it will be one of their most profound cinema experiences this year. From its stellar performances to dazing visuals, 'I Saw the TV Glow' is one of the most important films of the year.
Ezra -
EZRA
Family drama about autism has some speedbumps
It has a lot of heart to it and is sure to captivate a lot of people, but it leans too hard into the drama of the plot that the emotional beats get lost along the journey.
Cuckoo -
CUCKOO
Needs to be more loco
It has all the pieces, but they never come together. The recipe for a fun horror film is here, but this is a dish that comes undercooked.
A Different Man -
A DIFFERENT MAN
Sebastian Stan transforms
An extremely engaging and funny watch. Stan is fantastic, and this is sure to mark a turning point in his career. Its journey of self-image is sure to be relatable for many viewers, and it's one of 2024's most surprising films.
Kinds of Kindness -
KINDS OF KINDNESS
A lurid yet lengthy Yorgos Lanthimos movie
It provides a kind of twisted joy you won't find anywhere else, brought to the screen by an uncompromising creative team. It's a remarkable achievement to compile three stories with a troupe of actors portraying different characters, and having it come off as a cohesive film.
The Proposal -
THE PROPOSAL
It’s time to renew our vows
Revisiting 'The Proposal' for its 15th anniversary was an absolute delight. While it does not take any creative leaps, it certainly makes up by earnestly ensuring the tried-and-tested romcom tropes are made entertaining.
Tarzan -
TARZAN
25 years of ‘Two Worlds, One Family’
More than its other films, Disney took a lot of interesting journeys with this IP, and while it's easily overlooked, there is so much to love about it. It perfectly ties up what the Disney Renaissance was all about - innovation and creativity - and making films for modern audiences.
The Bikeriders -
THE BIKERIDERS
60s biker period piece needs more fuel
It has a lot to enjoy from its visuals to its performances, however, it lacks depth in characters and story to make this a worthwhile ride.
Bad Boys: Ride or Die -
BAD BOYS: RIDE OR DIE
Miami's finest entry yet
'Bad Boys: Ride or Die' is easily the best film in the franchise, managing to capture the Michael Bay aesthetic in a fun and modern way, with absolute knock-out action sequences and great fan service to die-hard fans while still being approachable for new audiences.
Every Little Thing -
EVERY LITTLE THING
Sally Aitken is as free as a bird
'Every Little Thing' will have its Australian premiere at the Sydney Film Festival, with director Sally Aitken in attendance - but before she enters the prestigious State Theatre, she spoke to Connor about the benefit of being an outsider to the world of hummingbirds, the rigours of observational filmmaking, and how Bob Marley played a hand in the film's title.
The Garfield Movie -
THE GARFIELD MOVIE
Garfield gets animated
This once again proves that this cat doesn't work in a theatrical format. Even the kids in the audience were quiet the whole time, barely laughing.
Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga -
FURIOSA: A MAD MAX SAGA
Fast and Furiosa
'Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga' is worth the almost ten-year wait. It’s the perfect world-building to this apocalyptic wasteland while still delivering on fantastic action set pieces the franchise is known for.
Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero -
LIL NAS X: LONG LIVE MONTERO
Lil Nas X is the industry, baby
It's purely for fans. It's too focused on the tour to really get into who Lil Nas X is and his journey. It feels like glorified behind-the-scenes footage that would be included on DVD packaged with the album.
IF -
IF
John Krasinski’s home for Imaginary Friends
It's is perfectly fine, but lacks fun imaginary friends while its heartfelt real-life story gets lost in the mix. Cailey Fleming shines, but the rest of the film just falls into a middling family adventure.
Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes -
KINGDOM OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
A new era for the franchise
This was always going to be a very tough film to pull off after the breathtaking arc of the previous entries, but it's a worthy addition to the canon.
Monster -
MONSTER
A delicate, breathtaking mystery from one of Japan's most compassionate filmmakers
An astonishing magic trick of a film, overwhelming in its compassion. It's quietly magnificent, almost miraculous, pain blossoming into joy, lies made in fear cracking open to reveal hidden, protected, precious truths.
Abigail -
ABIGAIL
"A ballerina vampire"
Don't expect clever craft or nuance; any effort to truly horrify the audience has sadly been lost along the way. If you're desperate to fill 109 minutes of your time, there are worse things you could watch than 'Abigail' - but if I were you, I'd passé.
Kill Bill: Vol. 2 -
KILL BILL: VOL. 2
The agony and the ecstasy of the second act of Tarantino’s shattering masterpiece
It's a demonstration of all that cinema can be, the marriage of visual and sound, the snap of great dialogue, the beauty of great performances, the ability to use all at its disposal to enthral and move us. There simply hasn't been anything else like it.
Challengers -
CHALLENGERS
Zendaya, Faist, O'Connor: All is complicated in love and tennis
Equally intense and fun, it is a character-driven story told in the most captivating visual way. More than anything, 'Challengers' is a calling card for Zendaya, Faist and O'Connor, showcasing their craft and setting them on the path of 2020's film icon status.
Back to Black -
BACK TO BLACK
Wishing 'We Only Said Goodbye' to hollow biopics
'Back to Black' is a disrespectful, hollow depiction of Amy Winehouse’s legacy. There is absolutely no reason to see this. Marisa Abela tries her best, but even she can’t save this.
