THEATRICAL REVIEW
LATEST REVIEWS
By Charlie David Page
19th December 2017

For anyone who loves movies, Boxing Day is the most exciting day at the cinema. While it's scorchingly hot outside, you can enjoy the AC with one of the year's biggest releases.

This week, we've got every film covered for the week leading up to Boxing Day, as well as the big day itself - though you can catch many of these films at advanced screenings, or even on Christmas Day itself in many of the capital cities!

So take a look though our collection of Boxing Day films, and let us know if you agree with our reviews of these highly-anticipated movies.

Breathe - A long exhale
BREATHE
A long exhale
Robert Cavendish lived a remarkable life and is a source of inspiration and hope, but there is something about ‘Breathe’ that sort of falls short, turning the breath into more of a yawn.
Call Me By Your Name - Beautiful beyond description
CALL ME BY YOUR NAME
Beautiful beyond description
Luca Guadagnino has made a film of enormous humanity, a statement on the nature of love that sends shockwaves through you, especially with the powerhouse performance from Timothée Chalamet.
Coco - An authentic, joyful animated masterpiece
COCO
An authentic, joyful animated masterpiece
Its passion, integrity and charm make it an instant Disney Pixar classic. You’ll be sucked in by its loveable characters, wondrous world, and a small boy who loves music more than anything else.
Downsizing - Honey, I shrunk my ability to be a decent human being
DOWNSIZING
Honey, I shrunk my ability to be a decent human being
An unfunny, unilluminating, caustically toothless, visually uninspiring and intellectually facile attempt at mansplaining the world’s problems.
The Florida Project - An authentic slice of life
THE FLORIDA PROJECT
An authentic slice of life
It’s simply a snapshot of real lives and we’re granted the honour of witnessing such unsung beauty and vitality. In a word, ‘The Florida Project’ is authentic.
The Greatest Showman - An aggressively awful musical experience
THE GREATEST SHOWMAN
An aggressively awful musical experience
This is a film of enormous ambition but no vision to guide it or idea how to harness its energy. Creating an original musical is hard, but Jackman’s passion project is exactly how not to do it.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle - Jack Black <span class=is the reason to see this movie">
JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
Jack Black is the reason to see this movie
The appeal of ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ is witnessing big-name stars act like their teenage counterparts - but Jack Black is the reason to see this movie.
Just To Be Sure - A baffling French film
JUST TO BE SURE
A baffling French film
'Just To Be Sure' doesn’t seem to know what it is. Not quite a comedy, not quite a drama, but it is French. Take from that what you will.
Paddington 2 - Trust and bear-lieve, it’s a paw-fect sequel
PADDINGTON 2
Trust and bear-lieve, it’s a paw-fect sequel
Whimsically traipsing onto screens with this year’s most delightful, most ecstatically enjoyable, most preposterously joyous cinematic experience, ‘Paddington 2’ might just be perfection.
