ACMI presents the World Premiere of Wonderland this April!

From the earliest optical toys to silent film, animation, puppetry, live-action cinema, videogames, CGI, 3D and beyond, WONDERLAND explores how the moving image has kept Alice and her stories in the public ...
A Wrinkle In Time Movie Review
It might be a generational thing as this reviewer is far removed from being a tween but great story telling has the ability to transcend age limitations. There are good things to take from the experience however as Reese Witherspoon is very appealing and funny as one of the major characters and it’s good to see Oprah back on the big screen. It’s also great to see Disney give a chance to a female director on one of its major films, in this case Ava DuVernay (Selma, Middle Of Nowhere).

Blockers Movie Review
The parents this time out are the clueless ones and this is played to maximum humour and effect. John Cena is specially funny and unafraid to go to extreme lengths to generate laughs. Their hearts are in the right place but their manic escapades do raise questions about their brain power.
The story revolves around a pact the three girls have to lose their virginity at the up coming High School Prom. It’s a testament to the script writers and actor’s abilities ...
Pacific Rim Uprising Movie Review
While it’s good to see John Boyega operate outside the constraints of the Star Wars world, he is given little to do besides being heroic. His charisma still breaks through but he is held back by a script that is very one dimensional. With its dedicated agenda of maximum action and sceptical, it will however play well to the right target market.
The director of the moment Guillermo del Toro was behind the first of the franchise and shares producer credits on this edition but the ...

Peter Rabbit Movie Review
With projects like this, being based on exisiting books (and children’s ones at that) it puts added pressure to create a screenplay that will have something to offer all segments of the audience. In this regards the film is very successful and the script is filled with many delightful moments.
It crates a very fun and lighthearted atmosphere and one that delivers its message with a distinct absence of preaching. It also has a number of running gags that just work every time and ...
