3.5/5 78% Frozen II (2019) May not take you into the unknown ... but it's a worthy-enough sequel that will ironically play strongest to older kids and adults who are spiritually equipped to handle its developing themes.‐ Brisbanista

4/5 96% Knives Out (2019) A fresh spin on old-fashioned fun, and deserves to be witnessed by all who appreciate the medium‐ Brisbanista

2.5/5 79% Judy & Punch (2019) The film is never funny enough to be considered an all-out comedy, and I imagine the film's graphic bouts of violence will deter others.‐ The AU Review

2/5 50% 21 Bridges (2019) It's the type of man-hunt actioner we've seen countless times before, and usually done much better.‐ Brisbanista

96% Marriage Story (2019) A film that's as equally honest and transparent, and as bitter and witty as the performances at its core.‐ This is Film

2.5/5 58% Fisherman's Friends (2019) These Friends can't quite provide you with the greatest hits you'll want to hear on repeat.‐ Brisbanista

83% Official Secrets (2019) Whether you're a politically-minded person or not, Official Secrets should reel you in with its true-to-life dramatics‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2019
4/5 82% The Report (2019) An uncompromising film that adopts a documentary-type mentality in order to relay its story as unsensationally as possible.‐ Brisbanista

52% Charlie's Angels (2019) This 2019 Charlie's Angels is stupefyingly entertaining and genuinely hilarious, offering itself up as a stylish alternative to the destructive blockbusters that have saturated the market.‐ This is Film

4/5 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) An old fashioned star vehicle and arguably the most entertaining film Matt Damon and Christian Bale have attached themselves to in the last few years.‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2019
3/5 47% Last Christmas (2019) A fine, amusing comedy that's warm enough as holiday entertainment but is unlikely to keep you warm year after year‐ The AU Review
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2019
3.5/5 77% Doctor Sleep (2019) It's a strong adaptation, one that beautifully brings to life one of King's most interesting villains, and as an ambitious sequel, it's far stronger than it has any right to be.‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2019
63% The Furies (2019) Delivers with a gory glee‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2019
2.5/5 71% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) The emotional connection that the original film and its sequel were able to create is a sorely missed ingredient here.‐ The AU Review

3/5 90% Happy New Year, Colin Burstead (2018) Could either alienate general audiences expecting something a little more even or rope enthusiasts in with its natural, hand-held aesthetic.‐ Brisbanista

4/5 89% Ready or Not (2019) Bloody, twisted, and hilarious, Ready or Not is an absolute treat as both a fresh offering for horror fans and cinema in general for 2019.‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2019
43% After the Wedding (2019) It's difficult to dismiss it in its entirety as [Michelle] Williams and [Julianne] Moore are both stellar, elevating their characters beyond the simplistic outlines of their descriptions.‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2019
89% Blinded by the Light (2019) Yes, this is a "message movie" about following your heart, never giving up, and just how transformative art can be to the individual consumer, but it's an honest feature all the same, one that owns its cheesy enthusiasm and wears it with pride.‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2019
3.5/5 68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) As entertaining as it needs to be for a slice of Halloween-season escapism. ‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2019
40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Heavy on visually-stunning imagery but light on the substance behind why such pictographs deserve to be seen, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil never really delves deeper beyond being aesthetically pleasing‐ This is Film

4/5 83% Judy (2019) Renee Zellweger's dedicated turn as a tragic Judy Garland elevates a film working with a tried and true formula to something of genuine wonder.‐ The AU Review
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2019
88% Hustlers (2019) Hustlers transcends its initial Showgirls-meets-Magic Mike aesthetic ... by adopting a more Scorcesian temperament; Goodfellas set within the world of exotic dancers? Don't mind if I do.‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2019
5/5 97% Pain and Glory (Dolor y gloria) (2019) The most emotionally naked feature [Pedro Almodovar] has delivered yet.‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2019
4/5 97% Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Portrait de la jeune fille en feu) (2019) A devastating watch that is likely to linger long after you've witnessed its goodbye.‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2019
3/5 26% Gemini Man (2019) Whilst Gemini Man will sell itself on the 3D technology and the higher frame rate, it's the Smith v Smith hook that is ultimately the draw, and for the most part it's an effective enticement.‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2019
4/5 65% The Day Shall Come (2019) As ridiculous as the film proves to be, [Chris] Morris is always aware that truth is stranger than fiction, and The Day Shall Come revels in that mentality with a dark glee.‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2019
24% The Goldfinch (2019) Overly long, thematically disjointed, confusingly acted... and questionable in its depiction of its timeline.‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2019
69% Joker (2019) Regardless of where you will personally sit in reaction to its material, the fact it's inspiring conversation is an achievement in itself, and what [Todd] Phillips and particularly [Joaquin] Phoenix have created is nothing less than admirable.‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2019
78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) The horror set pieces on hand are particularly entertaining, and highlight the horrific potential the material has.‐ This is Film

1.5/5 56% The Dead Don't Die (2019) Life's far too valuable to waste on underwhelming cinema such as this.‐ The AU Review
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2019
3/5 83% Koko-di Koko-da (2019) Should satisfy enthusiasts of surreal, narratively-defunct horrors, but be a cautionary visit for anyone else seeking a story presented in a straight-forward manner.‐ The AU Review
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2019
65% Ride Like a Girl (2019) Breezes by on heart and good intentions, even if a grittier, more emotional tale of Michelle's upbringing would've served this story more justice.‐ This is Film

2/5 27% Rambo: Last Blood (2019) Rest now John Rambo, we've all had enough.‐ Brisbanista

2.5/5 84% Ad Astra (2019) James Gray's ambitious drama will prove to be one man's wonder to another's waste.‐ The AU Review

80% Abominable (2019) Writer/director Jill Culton ... peppers this story with enough heart, humour and stunning animation that it proves rather difficult to discount.‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2019
84% Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) Manages to display a personality that parents can relate to, resulting in a feature that's far more accessible to the masses than it has any right to be.‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2019
84% Downton Abbey (2019) This is a film that very much knows what its audience wants, and in that regard it'll be a sumptuous success. For anyone else you'd best steer clear, for as simple and harmless as it is, you're unlikely to truly enjoy your visit.‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2019
1/5 No Score Yet Tabernacle 101 (2019) So little on offer here that's worth praising.‐ The AU Review
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2019
3.5/5 62% It Chapter Two (2019) An investing, if overindulgent scare piece that, like its predecessor, succeeds on an emotional and comedic level.‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2019
4.5/5 99% The Farewell (2019) An utterly engaging experience, [Lulu] Wang's film succeeds as both a form of entertainment and an intimate reminder of the importance of family.‐ Brisbanista

2.5/5 22% The Kitchen (2019) Considering the ingredients on hand, I should've been demanding seconds rather than settling for mediocrity.‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
3.5/5 99% Amazing Grace (2019) Whether or not you're an enthusiast of gospel music ultimately is of no importance as it's difficult to not be swept away in the sheer magnitude of [Aretha] Franklin's vocals. ‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2019
4/5 86% The Nightingale (2019) This is a story that demands an emotional reaction, and whether that be one of understanding or anger, The Nightingale is undoubtedly a movie that stays with you.‐ Brisbanista

75% Dragged Across Concrete (2019) If you're patient enough, brave even, the final product may prove worthy of your investment.‐ This is Film
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2019
2.5/5 39% Angel Has Fallen (2019) When the action genre of late has delivered such taut, smart affairs, it's hard to not want more than the basic level this fluff piece is operating on.‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2019
4/5 100% The Australian Dream (2019) So much more than just a documentary outlining an incident of abuse, The Australian Dream places a mirror against Australia's own history of burning racism and forces us to address it in a manner that can't easily be avoided‐ Brisbanista
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2019
5/5 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) This is very much Tarantino's love letter to Hollywood, to the episodic television of eras gone by, and to the Tinseltown set-up that has all but vanished from the landscapes of today's cinema.‐ Brisbanista
