THE WEEKLY // The Mummy

I had pretty low expectations for The Mummy, so I actually really enjoyed the first half. It was action-packed, had the look and feel of the kind of adventure film I devoured throughout my childhood, and was pretty spooky with Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // The Mummy”

CITY EAR // Essential Kurosawa

Everyone has their own cinematic blindspots, and a big one for me is Akira Kurosawa, the giant of Japanese cinema. Though interestingly, as a friend of mine put it, ‘you have probably seen more Kurosawa than you realise’, as his work, initially influenced by Continue reading “CITY EAR // Essential Kurosawa”

THE WEEKLY // Alien: Covenant

While really just a Prometheus sequel, we all know in our heart of hearts that had this film been called Prometheus 2 it would’ve got no funding and people would’ve raged hate upon it. So, what does Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Alien: Covenant”

THE WEEKLY // Snatched

With Mother’s Day been and gone, there’s not much left to say about Snatched. Yeah, perhaps it was a good film to take Mum to for a girly night out but now those obligations are over, is there any other point to see it? Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Snatched”

THE WEEKLY // Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Remember at the end of Marvel movies right after the credits there’d be an exciting, dramatic 60-second scene, usually featuring a new unexpected character or hinting at a plot twist for a sequel or crossover film? Yeah. Those were Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”

SPOTLIGHT // Berlin Syndrome

Cate Shortland, the Australian director of the chillingly captivating Berlin Syndrome, shows us the darker side of one of the key Australian rites of passage – backpacking across Europe. It may well give you cause to reconsider what you plan to do on your gap year. Continue reading “SPOTLIGHT // Berlin Syndrome”

THE WEEKLY // Raw

The synopsis for Raw is tame enough: a young girl who has led a sheltered, vegetarian life is thrust into the cruel and seductive world of university hazing.

Justine (Garance Marillier) is off to veterinary college, like her sister before her and her Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Raw”
