Poster for The Grinch

The 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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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