Review: The Mummy

Clearly the film was made with a teen audience in mind and the result is your typical M-rated action blockbuster, full of goofy humour and noisy set pieces but nothing distinct to set it apart. Dominic Kwaczynski reviews.

Review: Bad Girl

It is these universally relevant themes of family belonging, trust, and betrayal, that see Bad Girl transcend the boundary of an Australian independent film, to one capable of an international reception. Cindy Shi reviews.

Review: Berlin Syndrome

The film actively resists the sensationalism of a horror or other confinement thrillers, and in some ways – because of this and the questions Clare’s relationship with her captor raises – it is more terrifying. Julian Coleman reviews.

Review: Power Rangers

At first the shift from drama to camp is quite jarring, yet by the time the teens are all suited up and the Power Rangers theme kicks in, it’s hard not to give in to its shamelessness. Dominic Kwaczynski reviews.

Review: Split

The film plays with the idea that disorders, such as the one Kevin has, unlock the brains true potential; that when the mind splits itself it can actually change the entire makeup of the body it possesses. Kelly Dunn reviews.

Review: Little Men

Sachs’s talent appears to be this finely attuned rendering of the details of everyday living, pressed against human desires and projections. Review by Ryan Suckling.
