Poster for McQueen



Existing fans will get all they wanted and more, but those who stumble into this man and his tale will likely find it esoteric...

You Were Never Really Here


One of the most artistically bloody and memorable times spent in a cinema this year.

Poster for The Miseducation of Cameron Post

The Miseducation of Cameron Post


Cameron Post might not be subtle about its message, but it’s one worth hearing.

Poster for Wayne



A funny, charming and genuinely exciting look into one of the greatest riders this country has ever produced.

Poster for The Insult

The Insult


Those looking for thought-provoking cinema which will test sympathies and personal bias should rush out to see it.

Poster for SuperFly



This is absolute, unapologetic schlock. Laughably bad with emphasis on the ‘laughably’.

Poster for Jill Bilcock: Dancing the Invisible

Jill Bilcock: Dancing the Invisible


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

Poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp


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.

Poster for Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2


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.

Poster for Kodachrome



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

Poster for My Friend Dahmer

My Friend Dahmer


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

Poster for Cargo



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

Poster for Tully



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

Poster for For the Love of God

For the Love of God


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


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


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

The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society


Aims for picturesque charm and does it perfectly.

Poster for Chappaquiddick



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

There’s a lot of fun to be had here.

Poster for Paul, Apostle of Christ

Paul, Apostle of Christ


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


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


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.

Poster for The Endless

The Endless


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!

Poster for Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene


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