FIRST MEMORY OF A FILM: Being absolutely terrified by the transformation scene in Disney's beautifully crafted telling of 'Pinocchio'.

Galveston - Elle Fanning & Ben Foster save an uneven crime drama
GALVESTONElle Fanning & Ben Foster save an uneven crime drama
It is an interesting film that doesn’t entirely come together, yet one thing that works unequivocally is the performances of both Ben Foster and Elle Fanning.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - One-on-one with senior animator Eddie Chew
SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSEOne-on-one with senior animator Eddie Chew
Following the film's Academy Award win for Best Animated Feature, SWITCH chatted to senior animator Eddie Chew about what it was like on working on such a game-changer in the superhero genre.
Shazam! - 'Big' meets 'Superman' with delightful results
SHAZAM!'Big' meets 'Superman' with delightful results
With a brilliant ensemble of performers and a sense of creativity so divergent from other superhero cinematic offerings, this film is a wonderfully charming time.
At Eternity's Gate - A masterful piece of art
AT ETERNITY'S GATEA masterful piece of art
This is a piece of art, and unlike those that viewed van Gogh’s artworks throughout his lifetime, this should not be neglected upon release.
Free Solo - A beautiful story of human persistence
FREE SOLOA beautiful story of human persistence
‘Free Solo’ is a lean, thrilling and powerful documentary, covering an impossible feat that is anchored by keeping us grounded through the eyes of the climber and his world beyond the mountains.
Aquaman - Worth sea-ing
AQUAMANWorth sea-ing
The film sparkles with creativity and B-movie sensibilities to illustrate great humour and heart with Jason Momoa leading with ease. Flawed but entertaining, it's hard not to be swept up by 'Aquaman'.
Mary Poppins Returns - Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious-ish
MARY POPPINS RETURNSSupercalifragilisticexpialidocious-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-VERSEAn 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.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms - Alice in LacklustreLand
It looks pretty, and that is essentially where the lauding ceases. Aside from being a film to keep your kids occupied for an hour and a half, there isn’t anything of substance to the proceedings.
Widows - A captivating thriller beyond measure
WIDOWSA captivating thriller beyond measure
It's a film permeating with lofty themes with substance sharing equal billing with its thrills. ‘Widows’ is a gut-punch of a film but for all the best reasons, and one of the best films of the year.
Bohemian Rhapsody - It won't rock you
BOHEMIAN RHAPSODYIt won't rock you
A spirited performance from Malek and some exciting recreations can only do so much to balance the pedestrian screenplay. If you want to show the life of someone shrouded in legend, do so accordingly.
Minding The Gap - A mesmeric portrait of imperfect youths coming of age
MINDING THE GAPA mesmeric portrait of imperfect youths coming of age
For a non-fiction piece of filmmaking, its emotional intelligence is grounded in such tangible intimacy, it is heartbreaking as much as it is astonishing.
The Raft - Smooth sailing
THE RAFTSmooth sailing
In its best moments, 'The Raft' strives in teaching us how simple it can be for our ambition to become our downfall.
Our New President - Fake news has never been so aimless
OUR NEW PRESIDENTFake news has never been so aimless
For a film that proves unrelentingly misguided, ‘Our New President’ offers very few redeeming qualities. It is a miscellany of disinteresting acclamations devoid of any insight.
Madeline's Madeline - A star is born in transfixing tale of mental health ownership
MADELINE'S MADELINEA star is born in transfixing tale of mental health ownership
An unflinchingly provocative piece of work about how we choose to perceive the pain of others and the psychodramas that can shape from bleeding our real lives into our art.
A Simple Favour - Brazen melodrama proves the right amount of flavoursome
A SIMPLE FAVOURBrazen melodrama proves the right amount of flavoursome
This is not the film you’re probably expecting. While it can be a tad uneven, if you choose to go along with it, it’s hard to not crack a grin.
