Watch the trailer for Spirit Untamed – in Aussie cinemas from May!

Lucky Prescott (Isabela Merced, Dora and the Lost City of Gold) never really knew her late mother, Milagro Navarro (Eiza González, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), a fearless horse-riding stunt performer from Miradero, a small town on the edge of the wide-open frontier. Like her mother, Lucky isn’t exactly a fan of rules and restrictions, which has caused her Aunt Cora (Academy Award® winner Julianne Moore) no small amount of worry. Lucky has grown up in an East Coast ...

Retro Movie Review – End Of Watch

Taylor and Zavala are beat cops driving through some of Los Angeles’ meanest streets and the compression of action that they see in a single day, while it might be all artists license feels real and ominous. The film is shot with a lot of contradictory technologies from hand held (and jumpy) cameras to lapel cams to fixed position shots. Its quasi-documentary style feeds into this sense of heightened reality.   //   Like many tales that have come before, those that go ...

Retro Movie Review – Southpaw

The film also provides further proof (if any more is actually needed) on how fine an actor Jake Gyllenhaal has become. His take on the lead role, that of boxer Billy Hope is absolutely mesmeric. His time in the gym and time spent training to learn the techniques of boxing have paid real dividends.   //   Gyllenhaal fills the screen with electricity and menace and he makes the most out of what is a rather pedestrian screenplay. Sutter’s ability to plumb the depths of ...

Spider-Man: Far from Home Movie Review

The movie is filled with a plethora of insider jokes for fans of the MCU as well as a level of spectacle that rivals almost any other superhero franchise. Giving the experience even more charm is filtering the characters’s actions through the prism of those awkward early teen years. They really are a likeable lot.   //   Holland shares strong chemistry with Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck / Mysterio and Jon Favreau as Tony Starks right hand man, Happy Hogan. The ...

Everest Movie Review

The film is incredible tense and from the first frame you feel the rising level of impending doom. Even for those that have little knowledge of the actual events of the disaster, the film fills you with that dark sense of foreboding. It frames the climbers (accurately or not) as a group of driven people with little regard for their own safety or the tons of rubbish that modern day mountain climbing leaves behind. The film is big in almost every way, a big cast, a big adventure and a big ...
