THE WEEKLY // The Mountain Between Us

When an impending snowstorm grounds all flights, strangers Ben (Idris Elba) and Alex (Kate Winslet) foolishly decide to charter a light plane to get them to where they need to be. I say foolishly, but while Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // The Mountain Between Us”

THE WEEKLY // Flatliners

Code blue.

There is no rational reason why anyone anywhere decided that Julia Roberts’ 1990 thriller Flatliners should be remade. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Flatliners”

THE WEEKLY // 47 Meters Down

I love a good shark movie. The best ones are those which allude to the threat of the shark; a fin slicing through the water, a shadow underneath a swimmer, rather than the – often disappointing – full shot of the man-hungry beast. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // 47 Meters Down”

THE WEEKLY // The Dinner

I was eager to see The Dinner after being intrigued by the novel of the same name by Dutch author Herman Koch. I can save you the scroll down: this story is Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // The Dinner”

THE WEEKLY // IT

Pennywise the clown has been terrifying audiences for decades. His iconic image haunts many a nightmare and the trailer for 2017’s remake of IT is nothing but spooky; Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // IT”

SPOTLIGHT // Atomic Blonde

Late 1980s Berlin was a frightening place to be and not just because of all the David Hasselhoff music. However, it is here in the beating heart of the Cold War and just before the fall of the Berlin Wall, that Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) an MI6 undercover Continue reading “SPOTLIGHT // Atomic Blonde”

THE WEEKLY // Wind River

A (quite literally) chilling thriller set on a snowy, remote Native American Reservation; I would suggest bringing a nice warm jumper into the cinema with you for this one. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Wind River”

CITY EAR // Celebrate Studio Ghibli

Dendy Canberra is offering another fantastic opportunity to make some headway through my cinematic blindspot list by hosting a month-long celebration of the complete theatrical works, and more, from the acclaimed animation house Continue reading “CITY EAR // Celebrate Studio Ghibli”

THE WEEKLY // Annabelle: Creation

Spoiler alert: if you make a creepy doll, chances are it’ll come back to bite you on the arse. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Annabelle: Creation”

THE WEEKLY // War For the Planet of the Apes

Set 15 years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the third instalment in this blockbuster series takes us to a bleak and eerily familiar future. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // War For the Planet of the Apes”

SPOTLIGHT // Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth may well be the first film I can recall that has its final shot in the actual trailer. Thankfully though, without the context, this does not detract from what is a stark, startling and surprisingly imposing Continue reading “SPOTLIGHT // Lady Macbeth”

THE WEEKLY // Spider-Man: Homecoming

I feel like we could almost all agree that historically Spider-Man films have been a bit of a dud. This version of Peter Parker (Tom Holland) makes his debut in Captain America: Civil War, and though Civil War is flashy with a lot of A-list superheroes trying to make their 15 minutes count, Holland still Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Spider-Man: Homecoming”

CITY EAR // Music Video Monday

Some music videos become too outlandish in their ambition to match the music while some are just downright ego trips and others do nothing to bring the music to life. This music video is Continue reading “CITY EAR // Music Video Monday”

THE WEEKLY // It Comes At Night

I’m not trying to be funny, but I think this film misrepresents itself. It should be called, “It Doesn’t Just Come At Night”, because most of the action actually happens during the day, and the daytime proves to be just as dangerous as the night-time. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // It Comes At Night”

CITY EAR // Music Video Monday

This week’s music video is brought to you by none other than our very own Vo. Every city has at least one Vo reppin their town and ours just keeps delivering. Canberra director Chuong Vo has been busy of late with Continue reading “CITY EAR // Music Video Monday”
