'Underwater' Review - A Wet Mess

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.

'The Biggest Little Farm' is Heartwarmingly Educational - Review

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 Cat is Out of the Box - 'Cats' Film a Colossal Fail - Review

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.

Lacking Fire, Cena’s New Film 'Playing with Fire' is Largely Forgettable

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.

'Frozen' Fairytale Finds its Feet Once Again with 'Frozen 2' - Review

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.
