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”

CITY EAR // Music Video Monday

Slow Turismo have been slaying it on the live scene in the last few months and they’ve also backed it up with a killer video too. The band have had a steady tradition of music videos over the years but Continue reading “CITY EAR // Music Video Monday”

THE WEEKLY // The House

Obviously when my parents couldn’t afford something for me, they lied about it and started an underground casino to try and make some easy money. That’s what all parents do, Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // The House”

CITY EAR // Music Video Monday

As many filmmakers out there would know, making a music video can be an overwhelming task, getting cast, crew and budget all in order; not to mention half the battle is finding a suitable song. Now the lads Continue reading “CITY EAR // Music Video Monday”

THE WEEKLY // Rough Night

With a hugely great cast of comediennes, it was inevitable that Rough Night would somehow suck. The stakes were simply too high. As an audience and as a fan of most of the cast, I desperately wanted Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Rough Night”

CITY EAR // Music Video Monday

Director Cam Davies has been making waves of late, this groovy music video for local duo Mondecreen is just another example of what real Continue reading “CITY EAR // Music Video Monday”

SPOTLIGHT // McLaren

As a lifelong Formula One fan, I am a little ashamed to admit that it took Roger Donaldson’s intimate portrait of the life of Bruce McLaren to expose me to the origins of the name McLaren, one of the Continue reading “SPOTLIGHT // McLaren”

THE WEEKLY // Baywatch

When I heard they were making a Baywatch film, I was among the many who cried, “Oh god, no!” When I saw the trailer, I thought, “Hang on a minute …” Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Baywatch”

CITY EAR // Music Video Monday

Kirklandd has been making some pretty sweet beats lately and this epic tune is no exception. We came across this gem Continue reading “CITY EAR // Music Video Monday”

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”
