Jill Bilcock: Dancing the Invisible

7.0

2018, Documentary

Both a charming look at one of Australia’s finest cinematic craftswoman, and a fascinating glimpse into the rich history of Australian film.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

5.0

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Comedy, Science fiction

Has one or two fun moments playing around with this tiny hero, but this is as generic and forgettable a film as it was possible to make with this material.

It’s been a long time between drinks but the team at Pixar have captured everything great about the first film and done it again.

2018, Drama, Comedy

The result is perfectly watchable, but it never goes near the emotional heights it aspires to.

2017, Drama, Horror

A moderately successful piece of slowly built tension and creepy foreboding.

The latest of our brilliant local contributions with this layered and inventive take on the walking dead.

Tully

8.0

2018, Drama, Comedy

A deceptive narrative that speaks volumes about the topic, but made all the better for the masterful blending of humour and truthfulness...

2018, History, Documentary

The history of the church is a study of the best and worst of humanity, and this documentary is a fascinating one.

Poster for The Gateway

The Gateway

5.0

2018, Science fiction

Fairly conventional but still reasonable successful, even if the ending does seem like a bit of a cop out. If you love science fiction this is worth tracking down.

Poster for Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War

8.0

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Science fiction

This is for the fans, both young and old, and it doesn’t disappoint...

2018, Drama, History, Suspense

An informative and occasionally condemnatory portrayal of a man that spent his life living in the shadows of other, greater men.

2018, Drama, History

If you’re not religious this is like being slowly lobotomised over 100 excruciating minutes.

Poster for A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time

4.0

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Science fiction

Its ambitions well exceed its success and young audience might get a lot out of this but for an older audience it all seems a bit naive and candied.

Poster for Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit

4.0

2018, Adventure, Animation

Domhnall Gleeson still can’t put a foot wrong and Rose Byrne is always nice to see, but this is the perfect and most aggravating example of pointless adaptation.

2018.03.25

Poster for The Endless

The Endless

6.0

2017, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

Much more than the sum its parts and it’s always good when low budget films like this find their audience – horror fans, to the cinema!

2018.03.22

Poster for Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene

2018, Drama, History

If nothing else, this is a fascinating and original take on a story that has been continuously told for over two thousand years.

Poster for Den of Thieves

Den of Thieves

6.0

2018, Action, Suspense, Crime

Worth seeing if you’re in the mood for some very macho action and an unapologetic ode to the great films of the blockbuster heist era.
