Poster van The Aftermath

The Aftermath

6

Not a bad film, but rather one for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Enjoy it with a cup of tea, then forget about it immediately afterwards.

Poster van The Hole in the Ground

The Hole in the Ground

6

The Hole in the Ground is worth checking out if you’re in the mood for a horror film that explores real themes with aplomb, and it will leave you working it out for days to come.

Poster van The Pretend One

The Pretend One

8

The Pretend One is a brilliantly realised piece of homegrown cinema that soars on the strength of the photography and Hakewill’s performance.

Poster van Destroyer

Destroyer

7

Although it can’t quite overcome some of the uneven groundwork, Destroyer succeeds on the strength of Kidman’s performance and the direction.

Poster van Hotel Mumbai

Hotel Mumbai

8

It’s a stunning debut that that will leave audiences everywhere flocking to the nearest bar for a stiff drink and a quiet cry when it’s over.

Wine Calling

9

Wine Calling is one of the most delicious food films to come along recently. It’s great fun from start to finish, an experience that will make you leave the theatre and go to the nearest wine store. There are few things in the world better than an evening spent with interesting people and good wine, but documentaries about them come in a close second.

Poster van Fighting with My Family

Fighting with My Family

7

It’s an unexpected masterclass in simple but effective screenwriting, proving that even the least convincing of premises can be transformed into a delightful film.

Poster van The House That Jack Built

The House That Jack Built

7

For fans of Lars von Trier this will be his magnum opus but the uninitiated should stay far away; some things can’t be unseen.

Poster van An Impossible Love

An Impossible Love

7

An Impossible Love is Catherine Corsini returning to our screens and delivering the thoughtful, barbed and beautifully made love stories she excels at.

Poster van Revenge

Revenge

7

As a genre, rape-revenge films bring their own set of ethical questions. Yet in terms of a filmmaker cutting through all nuance and giving us a film that delivers like a sucker punch, Revenge is both wickedly entertaining and visually creative.

Poster van Stan & Ollie

Stan & Ollie

8

Stan & Ollie stands head and shoulders above other Hollywood biopics because it finds the human faces underneath the legends.

Esoteric but for opera lovers it’s a gift.

Poster van On the Basis of Sex

On the Basis of Sex

6

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

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.

Poster van Storm Boy

Storm Boy

6

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

Poster van Loro

Loro

7

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

Poster van The Favourite

The Favourite

7

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.

Poster van Zimna Wojna

Zimna Wojna

9

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.

Poster van Bumblebee

Bumblebee

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.

Poster van Peppermint

Peppermint

2

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.
