    Drive-Away Dolls


    Almost like if a Coen directed and rewrote a Shane Black script—it has a real freewheeling, light energy of a future midnight movie staple. You can tell that Ethan’s the lighter, sillier one of the brothers because it doesn’t have that underlying nihilism of a classic Coen joint. It’s definitely minor Coen for sure but it has one thing that most modern comedies don’t: Margaret Qualley superbly activating unhinged goofball chaos mode.

    Super-powered Dakota Johnson goes gonzo with a bunch of girls in a mind-bending thriller extravaganza where the limits of Ms Dakota’s ability will be tested: Awful Edition. Making a ‘superhero’ joint mostly be the opening of a Final Destination instalment on loop is a genuinely unhinged choice—plus, if you watch closely, you will notice some subtle references to the lore of Spider-Man! Ezekiel Sims will return as the big bad for Spider-Man 4, trust me. Watching this with my amazing Melbourne friends made this an unforgettable experience.

    Letterboxd user @Riley_Danson wanted to put this on so now I’ve seen the film ‘The Marvels’ twice. Dar-Benn is a force to be reckoned with. Kelsey Grammer IS Beast.

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage


    One of the best rom-coms of the decade. I am clinically in love with Tom Hardy.

    I’ve decided my favourite moment in this is when Ralph Fiennes momentarily slips into Voldemort mode and screams ‘you’re an idiot’ in Benedict’s face.

    You can obviously talk about Wes all you want but Noah as co-writer really did his dress rehearsal for Marriage Story and White Noise here.

    Woah, this is just like the Argylle (2024, dir. Matthew Vaughn) when you think about it!
