Home grown hit Prize Fighter embarks on a National Tour!
The four-time Helpmann nominated production, which received its premiere at La Boite’s Roundhouse Theatre for Brisbane Festival 2015, is adrenaline-pumping, full contact theatre, inspired by Fidel’s remarkable own story story and those of people he has known.

Competition closing soon – win a double pass to a special advance screening of The Merger!

Barely able to field a team, the club is reeling from news that their clubrooms have been condemned due to asbestos contamination. A left field solution to their woes comes in the form of former football star Troy Carrington [Damian Callinan] ...
The Happytime Murders Movie Review
Director Brian Henson (son of Jim) gets to scrap the good taste and limited children friendly world and indulge in something very much restricted viewer worthy. Casting Melissa McCarthy gives the film a perfect B movie atmosphere and lowers the expectations of the work having to be fine art. Dirty puppet jokes and bad human jokes, what could be better?
Setting the story in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles and following a down on his luck private dick scenario ...
Golden Age of Czech Animation coming soon to the Australian Cinémathèque!
Jiří Trnka’s stop motion puppet animations rivalled Walt Disney in both output and international acclaim, earning him the title the ‘Disney of the East’. Karel Zeman took animation to new poetic heights, interweaving animation techniques with live-action filmmaking.
All three overcame the constraints of postwar politics to create extraordinary works which still inform the work of filmmakers like Jan Švankmajer, Terry Gilliam, Tim Burton and Wes Anderson...

The Spy Who Dumped Me Movie Review
Inhabiting the bumbling role that morphs into the super spy, both Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon do the role justice. They have good chemistry together and Kunis’s straight role balances out nicely with McKinnon’s hyper crazy. The men this time are only there as eye candy and Sam Heughan (hot Jamie from Outlander) plays the role well and doesn’t even have to show his butt.
The story that drives the film is thin but as a platform for the girls to do their comic ...
