Underwater makes for uncomfortable viewing for someone terrified of driving through the Sydney Harbour Tunnel, but it lacks innovation to elevate it into something more than a series of knock-off jump scares and claustrophobia-inducing sequences.
Despite missing the opportunity to call a fourth film ‘Bad Boys 4 Life,’ the seriously entertaining third entry in Sony Pictures’ Bad Boys series, Bad Boys for Life, never misses a comedic beat.
With its blonde star-studded cast, Bombshell does not shy away from shining the spotlight on the true story of sexual harassment at Fox News.
Throughout The Biggest Little Farm, I was in tears. The film details the damage monoculture farming has on the land and the despair that this creates is immense. However, the film is also careful to create a sense of joy out of the simplicity of nature, and its ability to heal itself with the right human care.
The claymation masters at Aardman Animations are back at it again with Shaun the Sheep’s second big-screen adventure, Farmageddon.
Sam Mendes’ WWI-themed 1917 looks and sounds amazing, making for a truly visceral viewing experience. Its single-take format is technically remarkable, though it suffers from a lack of character development.
In Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 novel Little Women, die or “get married by the end” are the two options given to aspiring author Josephine “Jo” March (Saoirse Ronan) when negotiating a publishing deal.
Like an exquisite painting itself, Portrait of a Lady on Fire will have you enraptured with its serene beauty, delicate detail, and careful storyline.
It was a brave move by Sony to release a sequel to Jumanji (1995) back in 2017. Would people be interested in a sequel to a film that had been in development hell for almost as long as Robin Williams’s character had been trapped inside the titular board game?
A film that has garnered as much applause as it has awkward collar tugs, 20th Century Fox’s ‘anti-hate’ dark-comedy Jojo Rabbit enters the Awards season as 2019s most controversial contender for the gold statue.
Like everyone with access to the internet, I saw the two baffling trailers to Cats. The trailers are the epitome of creepiness and I would gleefully show them to friends/acquaintances/work colleagues who mentioned they were yet to set eyes on the CGI cat celebrities, so I was fully expecting the film to be a slightly off-color cinematic experience.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker concludes the forty-plus year-long saga of the Skywalker family, and while it does provide closure, the journey there is mind-numbing.
Remember when Vin Diesel took a break from driving furiously fast and ended up undercover as a babysitter having to take care of three unruly kids in The Pacifier (2005)? Well, replace Diesel with the bulky John Cena, reuse a few of the same man-struggles-to-provide-basic-care-to-children gags, throw in a storyline about pseudo-macho smokejumpers and you have the moderately funny flick Playing with Fire.
Daniel Craig and his fellow ensemble stars are the highlight of the cleverly written ‘whodunnit’ from Rian Johnson, Knives Out.
Here to entertain the little ones and eventually drive the older ones a tad bonkers, Anna (Kristen Bell), Elsa (Idina Menzel) and their motley crew have returned in style in Frozen 2, Disney’s follow-up to the 2013 smash hit. Is the world ready for another round of soaring songs and the talking, walking, snowman? Probably not, but Disney has delivered nonetheless.
