Film

At The Movies: Elvis

Film reviews are easy to write when the movie is bad or subpar, but what if it’s the best film you’ve ever seen?

How a Penrith Plaza Santa inspired a new Aussie Christmas movie

Local director and former Weekender journalist Heath Davis has wrapped filming on his latest movie, ‘Christmess’.

At The Movies: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Despite quality direction and an A-list cast, ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ rivals the weakest Marvel Cinematic Universe installments.

At The Movies: Ambulance

Expecting anything else other than cheesy action scenes and over-the-top explosions from a Michael Bay movie would probably be asking too much.

At The Movies: The Batman

With a moody soundtrack, subtle reveals and a strong storyline, 'The Batman' will be hard to beat as one of the best cinema experiences of 2022.

At The Movies: Uncharted

‘Uncharted’ is a more than enjoyable ride – providing just the right amount of nods to the games, while developing its own story and strength as a stand-alone film.

At The Movies: Marry Me

Channelling ‘Notting Hill’ with a 2022 twist, ‘Marry Me’ represents the modern revival of the romantic-comedy.

At The Movies: Death on the Nile

Unhurried, if not a little too slow at times, ‘Death on the Nile’ offers a healthy dose of whodunnit intrigue in classic Agatha Christie style.

At The Movies: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

With furry chicken pig like creatures and huge dragons, you might mistake ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ as a Disney story, but it is a superhero movie like you have never seen before.

The Suicide Squad avoids box ticking threat, delivers plenty of fun

If you’ve seen ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and loved it, then I have little doubt you’ll lap up James Gunn’s work with ‘The Suicide Squad’.

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’.
