American Sniper

American Sniper

“Hit me with your best shot.”

Before Arnie burst onto the scene in the early 80’s with his pulsing biceps and tenuous grasp of the English language, there was a quiet, soft-spoken man that was all about walking the walk, as well as talking the talk. He was the type of cat who counted the bullets fired from his signature .44 Magnum and then had the courtesy to quiz the bad guys on it. A Hollywood icon that ruled the silver screen for close to four decades. An actor who encompassed the spectrum of American heroes: square-jawed cowboys, square-jawed soldiers, all the way through to square-jawed police detectives. Yep, …

The Babadook

“Don’t let it in.”

Despite our venomous rants about the state of Australian cinema, we’re pleased to concede that 2014 has served-up some solid examples of Antipodean cinema. While there haven’t been any mainstream hits like, say, The Castle – and by ‘mainstream’ we mean ‘lowest common denominator’ – it’s safe to say that this year has seen more hits than it has misses: Son of a Gun, The Rover, Felony, and These Final Hours to name but a few. The mere fact that we’ve willingly seen so many local movies in the last twelve months has to be testament to some return to form. However, there’s one entry missing from that list: The Babadook. We’d heard rumblings about this …

John Wick

John Wick

“All the hallmarks of a cult classic.”

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the 80’s and 90’s were the halcyon days of the action genre. You know, back when good guys were incredibly good, bad guys were incredibly bad, and explosions were… um, incredibly explodey. Commando. Terminator. Predator. Come to think of it, everything from Arnie’s back-catalogue was awesome. In fact, everything in Action Land was awesome. Well, that was until the new millennium rolled around and things suddenly became serious. The line between good and bad turned grey and the world seemed a lot less explodey. It was also an era that just happened to …

The Rover

The Rover

“When a man loves a woman car.”

Australian movies: we can take ‘em or leave ‘em. Actually, for the most part we can leave ‘em. And yes, we make that admission as semi-proud Australians. While we’re not entirely sure how other cultures react to watching themselves portrayed on the big screen, it never ceases to amaze us how cringeworthy the average Aussie comes off at the hands of its own industry. Are we really that much of a joke? Case in point: The Castle. Whenever we accidentally catch that waste of celluloid on TV it makes us want to bleach our eyeballs with a semi-automatic. …
