  • Godzilla Minus One

    Godzilla Minus One

    ★★★★★

    Incredible!

    Exceeded my expectations. Godzilla Minus One is closest in DNA to the original 1954 film and it goes to show that 70 years later the formula can still be as effective. Post-war nuclear warfare fears mixed with PTSD and dealing with the fallout by the way of a giant kaiju breathing heat rays all over the show.
    Big G is absolutely menacing in this, a true force of nature that leaves little room for hope. This is easily top-tier…

  • Time Addicts

    Time Addicts

    ★★★★

    Time Addicts is an absolute riot! Fucking hilarious from start to finish and surprisingly emotional. Following two crack addicts who while robbing a guy, decide to give the stolen crack a go and end up traveling through time. The consequences are laugh-out-loud funny as are the two leads. It's a real mash of genres with Aussie sensibilities and is filmed in a way that begs to be seen on a big screen.

    Academy Award goes to the word cunt.

    The Marvels

    ★★★

    The Marvels has a certain amount of charm and I'm really digging the three leads, Teyonah Parris and Iman Vallani in particular play off each other quite well. The movie as a whole is having a bunch of fun and goes to some weird places which I normally enjoy but some of it felt super forced and the throwaway villain was very generic.

    Academy Award goes to Ms Marvel's mum smashing aliens with various living room items.

  • Wake in Fright

    Wake in Fright

    ★★★★

    A masterclass in self-destruction. Wake In Fright is Ozpliotation at its nastiest following a bored teacher, John Grant, in a secluded town in the outback as he spirals out of control giving into his vices and the people around him.

    Set in a place fondly called "The Yabba" by the locals, it's a hot and dry small town where all the men drink and gamble their nights away with nothing better to do. After a night joining in with the…

    The McPherson Tape

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This scared the shit out of me when I was 7 years old, now it just seems painfully slow. What family stumbles upon an alien space ship, runs home in a panic then decides to play cards?!? Then they realise the aliens are outside their house so they decide to play cards?!?!?! Then they notice the alien they killed and put in their bedroom is missing SO THEY GO AND FUCKING PLAY CARDS?!?!?!?!?

    Mortal Kombat

    ★★★½

    An Outworld man who sucks souls to make his way in life wants to come live in cool old Earthrealm. He sends his best minions; a chill guy; a girl with a great smile and a four-armed muscle boy to go and sort out Earth's greatest warriors including; a MMA fighter who is good at being beat up; an armless man and and guy that wears a hat.

    I understand the motives of the Outworlders as Outworld sucks hard, it…
