Watch the trailer for Moonfall – in Aussie cinemas February 2022!

With mere weeks before impact and the world on the brink of annihilation, NASA executive and former astronaut Jo Fowler (Halle Berry) is convinced she has the key to saving us all – but only one astronaut from her past, Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson), and conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley) believe her.   //   The unlikely heroes will mount an impossible last-ditch mission into space only to find out that our moon is not what we think it is. MOONFALL is ...

Tom & Jerry Movie Review

Animated shenanigans include things like faking blindness to help revenue while panhandling, squatting held as a virtue, wanton property destruction, ethnic stereotyping, and the classic Saturday morning cartoon portrayal of excessive violence as comic fodder. Good clean comedy for those surfing the sugar rush of morning breakfast cereal.   //   Homo sapien actor-wise, Chloë Grace Moretz plays a great shill and her surface of nauseating niceness is the perfect cover for ...

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 – The Martian

It is equal parts thriller and scientific exploration and focuses on the human resolve to rise to the occasion and survive despite all the odds. Matt Damon is fantastic as the hyper intelligent astronaut that due to circumstance gets left behind on an aborted manned mission on Mars.   //   His approach to survival is based around his scientific knowledge and raw will to live but it is tempered by irreverence towards his circumstance and to the authority figures that he ...

Retro Movie Review – American Hustle

The always-outstanding British actor Christian Bale lays to rest the man in black for the new man in fat. His visual transformation is just one element of his transcendent performance. He has to act his butt off just to transcend that hairdo of his. Jennifer Lawrence adds to her building resume of great performances as Bale’s on screen wife who is both hilarious and clueless. Bradley Cooper’s manic drug fuelled performance is also outstanding. Now no discussion of great roles in this ...

Fantasy Island Movie Review

Given the popularity and appealing quirkiness of Blumhouse films like Get Out, Happy Death Day and BlacKkKlansman, one would have the initial impression of a certain level of quality but a Wiki investigation of the company’s large and spotty output reveals just the opposite. Unfortunately they have done themselves no favours with their latest production.   //   The biggest flaw (and there are many) is a weak concept that they constantly dilute by changing the instig...
