Esoteric but for opera lovers it’s a gift.

Despite Leder’s formulaic direction and habit of slipping into cliches this is still an important film...

Poster van The Mule

The Mule

7

Has little new to offer but that isn’t meant as a negative. The themes it explores are ones that every generation goes through yet every one has a unique relationship to.

Poster van Green Book

6

What it lacks in subtlety it makes up for in the fantastic leading performances that manage to save this from being a tedious lesson in 60s bad-old-days nostalgia. This is exactly the kind of well meaning but thin film that opens around Oscar season with good intentions but not a lot of staying power.

While this version of Storm Boy doesn’t do anything particularly new or engaging, it has its heart in the right place.

A loud, brash and frequently scatterbrained film about… a loud, brash and frequently scatterbrained man.

Won’t be for everyone but those looking for a weird yet compelling experience should seek this out. It’s impossible to forget and that’s always a good thing.

Not a moment is wasted and every single frame is extraordinary. For those that like their cinema finely cut and quietly passionate this is unmissable. Nothing burns like the cold.

7

A pitch-perfect, crowd pleasing triumph that shows Hollywood still knows how to make engaging and thoroughly entertaining summer popcorn spectacle given the right people.

Isn’t the worst film of 2018 but it’s undoubtably the most culturally and politically despicable.

Poster van Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

8

Where the Lord and Miller influence shines is through humour and the pitch-perfect balance of tone, taking itself seriously enough to be compelling without falling into the depressing self-seriousness that has sunk other films of this genre.

Poster van De Grinch

De Grinch

5

While this is easily the most dull and forgettable version of the Dr Seuss classic, the most important aspect hits the mark: children will likely have fun with it and with the school holidays coming up that’s reason to be happy.

Poster van You Might Be the Killer

You Might Be the Killer

6

It’s not scary in the slightest but there’s enough love of the genre to more than compensate, especially since some of the gore is so schlocky and over-the-top that it would make Tarantino titter with glee.

For any fan of The Monster Squad this documentary will be a dream come true, for everyone else this is a lovely journey into one of the forgotten corners of the cinematic landscape.

Poster van National Theatre Live: King Lear

National Theatre Live: King Lear

7

Mundy’s adaptation lets itself down on some stylistic choices but it’s worth seeing this for McKellen alone. No man may ever write a better tragedy but it’s unclear whether any man will ever play the role as confidently and as nuanced as McKellen.

The range of topics is the documentary’s strength yet also its weakness. But the message is important; if it inspires even the slightest bit of change it would have been worth it.

An unoriginal jump-scare fest constantly walking the middle of the road between decent horror schlock and cattle prod cinema.

Like a lot of films from the East the audience has to do a lot of the work; reflection and research is key to finding the depths of this unique film.

It’s brutal, repellent and a no-holds-barred depiction of one of the most revolting collections of people imaginable.

In terms of pure filmmaking this is an extraordinary display of new talent.

A compelling and ultimately rewarding slice of audacious Australian filmmaking that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Those who like their horror films psychological, dripping with atmosphere, and held together with a script that deals with substance will find a new genre favourite.
