19th Lavazza Italian Film Festival Preview Reviews
This year’s festival will feature a fantastic selection of films like the comedies Put Nonna In The Freezer, a dark comedy about an up-tight policeman that changes his ways for love and My Big Gay Italian Wedding, that illustrates the power a loving mother has in garnering acceptance for her gay son with his homophobic father. It also ends with a great song and dance number.
And on a more serious side there are films like The Order Of Things that takes a look at the contentious subject ...
Beast Movie Review
Moll (Jessie Buckley) is a girl with a past, one that is never completely explained. Her life is a dull one punctuated by vividly violent nightmares. She soon meets local Pascal (Johnny Flynn) in the small isolated island community they call home and sparks fly.
The film is geared to never letting you off the hook and its creepiness aids in both drawing you in and freaking you out. It establishes both these feelings very well. The story revolves around a series of ...

The Predator Movie Review
He has created a Predator movie for current audience members with a voracious appetite for action. He turns everything up to eleven, more carnage, more guns, more explosions and more stupidity. He gleefully disregards the laws of physics and sensibility and tries his best to overwhelm.
With this level of overload, you can’t help but have a rollicking good time. The film takes full advantage of giants screens, giant sound systems and giant cravings for pure ...

Panic! At The Disco returning to Australia with an epic tour!
‘Panic! At The Disco wowed... Brendon Urie rocked through a medley of career-spanning hits, from “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” to “I Write Sins, Not Tragedies” – although the most memorable moment came with his rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” He recorded the cover for the Suicide Squad soundtrack and has performed it live before, but nailed it … hitting notes that would make any Queen fan’s jaw drop.’ – Variety, May 2018
Panic! return 13 years after they first ...
A Simple Favour Movie Review
These talks are stitched together via a sordid tale of insurance fraud and murder. There are some rather large plot holes and elements that make little sense but this is not meant to degrade the experience because this is a fine work of populist entertainment.
As such there are a substantial number of unifying moments that had the entire audience on the same page. This lead to a very desirable feeling of shared community. A dark room filled with lots of people who ...

Christopher Robin Movie Review
Now weather those lessons had any longterm positive effect or not, they did provide a lot of feel good moments. Christopher Robin’s lesson is a simple one but it’s told in such a charming and childlike way that it can’t help but draw you in and give you a case of those old time warm and fuzzies.
Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) has left his childhood dreams and fantasies far behind him after serving in World War II and has become a workaholic. The neglect ...
