The Latest & Greatest from the Canberra Film Community!

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”

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”
