    Belle

    ★★★★½

    In the world of U, five billion users are asking one question — Who is Belle? 

    After premiering at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in July of last year, Australian audiences can finally bear witness to the latest offering from Summer Wars and Mirai director Mamoru Hosoda, when Belle hits cinemas across the country on Thursday, 20 January.

  • Crash

    Crash

    ★★★

    2020 was a fucking car crash, so what better way to start the new year than with some car crash fucking?

    Cronenberg’s unabashedly perverse sleeper hit is a difficult film to quantify, calling into question what exactly defines a good film. Do we rate works based on personal enjoyment? Cultural impact? Technical prowess? When it comes to Crash, there is no point of intersection for any of these measures. 

    Perhaps more compelling than the film itself is its place in…

    Scream

    ★★½

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

    It’s no Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday The 13th, but Scream is back with a 5 for an ‘S’, and oh boy, is it okay out of ten! 

    There’s a lot to like about this latest installment, but unfortunately almost all of that can be traced back to its legacy characters. It was wonderful to see Sidney thriving, and Dewey was possibly the best he has ever been (albeit very briefly), but at the risk of…

  • Meshes of the Afternoon

    Meshes of the Afternoon

    ★★★★

    My buddy Zach ranked Meshes as his number one first watch of 2021, so of course I had to see for myself how a 14 minute short beats out the likes of 2046 and The Piano Teacher.

    It’s immediately evident why Meshes of the Afternoon has been, and continues to be, so influential. Maya Deren was decades ahead of her time, with aerial shots that would put David Fincher to shame given the same resources.

    Admittedly, it did take me…

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★

    I relate to the creatures in A Quiet Place because I too want everyone to shut the fuck up.

  • Mortal Kombat

    Mortal Kombat

    ★★★★

    Ranked: 2021

    Was lucky enough to “get over here” for tonight’s Mortal Kombat premiere event, and I’m delighted to report this movie FUCKS.

    Bloody, funny and full of (ripped out) heart, the film is accessible enough for even casual gamers to enjoy, while littered with Easter eggs for diehard MK fans. 

    Captain Boomerang who? Josh Lawson is fucking hilarious, stealing just about every scene with his quintessential ocker bastard Kano. Ludi Lin and Lewis Tan are possibly the most attractive…
