The Curse of the Weeping Woman - Horrifically mediocre
THE CURSE OF THE WEEPING WOMANHorrifically mediocre
This is a nice safe horror movie. It isn’t painful to sit through, nor is it game-changing, but you'll find it a fun sit, with some creative scares and decent acting.
Top End Wedding - Outback fantastic
TOP END WEDDINGOutback fantastic
It’s modern, it’s multicultural, it's finally an Australian film that is truly the Australia we live in today. Take your mum, your sister, your brother, your dog - this movie deserves a huge success.
Back of the Net - Misses the net, and then some
BACK OF THE NETMisses the net, and then some
It'll amuse pre-teen girls for 90 minutes before they forget it, but it never goes above that. It doesn’t succeed as cinematic film, nor is it so bad that it’s good; it’s mediocrity at its finest.
Breaking Habits - A strong woman, but a weak documentary
BREAKING HABITSA strong woman, but a weak documentary
This is an engaging documentary, but only scratches the surface. It’s a great underdog story, but only scratches the surface on the topic of legalising marijuana and the existence of the nuns.
Wonder Park - The park is closed indefinitely
WONDER PARKThe park is closed indefinitely
It so badly wants to be the next thing, but ‘Wonder Park’s' construction crumbles before it’s even begun being built. Take the kids to an actual theme park instead.
1985 - An emotional look at an overlooked past
1985An emotional look at an overlooked past
Transporting us back to 1985, the film may tackle sexuality and AIDS, but the ending is quite a beautiful message of hope for the future of the community. It’s a great film thanks to its performances.
Where Hands Touch - A romantic snooze
WHERE HANDS TOUCHA romantic snooze
While the premise is interesting, the film is very basic. Reading the Wikipedia article about biracial teens in WWII provides much more interest and engagement than anything ‘Where Hands Touch’ does.
Five Feet Apart - Breathing borrowed air and clichés
FIVE FEET APARTBreathing borrowed air and clichés
‘Five Feet Apart’ very clearly wants to be the next ‘The Fault in Our Stars'. While it will make its core demographic cry, it fails with its messy structure and genetic narrative.
The Man who Killed Don Quixote - Art imitates life
THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTEArt imitates life
Terry Gilliam has reinvented history and iconic characters from the past before, but this isn’t worth the 29-year wait. While Adam Driver shines, the rest on the film needs another polish.
Fighting with my Family - A soap opera in spandex
FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILYA soap opera in spandex
While the underdog story often feels tried and done, this makes it feel fresh once again, largely thanks to its talent cast and hilarious and heartwarming script.
The Lego Movie 2 - Don't interrupt me when I’m spaceshipping!
THE LEGO MOVIE 2Don't interrupt me when I’m spaceshipping!
While 'The Lego Movie 2' isn’t as strong as the first, which was always going to be a hard feat, it still has laughs, a good message and fun and creative worlds.
