Film

At The Movies: Those Who Wish Me Dead

We're back at the movies!

At The Movies: Wrath of Man

From its tense opening scenes through to its bloody, bitter conclusion, ‘Wrath of Man’ delivers an engaging ride throughout.

Stunning film offers insight into an extraordinary lifestyle

Chloé Zhao’s award-winning ‘Nomadland’ is both ambitious and understated

At The Movies: Voyagers

Director Neil Burger takes us nowhere particularly new with ‘Voyagers’, the science-fiction film that sees a fleet of young people being raised for the purpose of finding a new Earth.

At The Movies: The Courier

Based on the gut-wrenching true story of a Soviet agent and the kind-hearted man recruited to help him, ‘The Courier’ is a gripping watch for any modern history buff.

At The Movies: Ascendant

The trend of teen-based sci-fi films seems to be circling back this year, first with ‘Chaos Walking’, and now with ‘Ascendant’, the part-fantasy, part-thriller film from Antaine Furlong.

At The Movies: Nobody

There may be some overly familiar ingredients in the new low-budget action flick ‘Nobody’, but this quick, fast-paced movie certainly doesn’t suffer.

At The Movies: Godzilla vs. Kong

A battle of two cinematic giants.

At The Movies: Raya and the Last Dragon

A family movie with a strong message.

At The Movies: The Little Things

‘The Little Things’ throws us back to a time some 25 years ago, hoping to revive the dark and brooding thriller that became popular with the likes of ‘Seven’ and ‘The Bone Collector’.

At The Movies: Wrong Turn

The ‘Wrong Turn’ franchise has been re-booted and while Mike P Nelson’s horror/thriller won’t be lining up for a gong next awards season, the result of this 2021 incarnation exceeds expectations.

At The Movies: Long Story Short

Josh Lawson achieves a lot with ‘Long Story Short’, which manages to be an anxiety-inducing, yet funny and romantic reminder about the shrinking nature of time.

At The Movies: The Marksman

It’s that time of year – time for your annual dose of Liam Neeson playing a simple guy with a big problem.

At The Movies: Penguin Bloom

It sounds more cheesy than enjoyable; paralysed from the chest down after a freak accident, Sam Bloom finds a new sense of purpose by caring for an injured bird.

Cinema classics under the stars

Moonlight Cinema’s bean beds have been fluffed, the lawns manicured, and the silver screens are sparkling as it makes a grand return for summer.
