3.5/5 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) [Rami Malek] owns that big stage presence energy and clearly studied Freddie down to a tee. - Triple J EDIT

3/5 89% A Star Is Born (2018) Bradley Cooper's modern reworking is passable enough to keep you entertained. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 75% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Bad Times starts strong and finishes, well...as a bit of a bad time. What at first looks like a promising Tarantino or Coen Brothers-esque movie, ends up as an annoyingly classic case of style over substance. - Triple J EDIT

1/5 29% Venom (2018) Ultimately we're left with this mess of a PG-13 bloodless, watered-down impression of a superhero movie. The most grotesque thing in the entire movie has gotta be watching Tom Hardy shovel tater tots into his mouth like a goddamned Neanderthal. - Triple J EDIT

4/5 87% First Man (2018) First Man: a simple story told with tight execution. It's one small step towards a biopic not about a sporting legend, one giant leap for Hollywood...kind of. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 85% A Simple Favor (2018) A Simple Favor is a thrilling ride worth checking out. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 97% To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) If you want a realistic portrayal of the ugly truth of high school relationships, this ain't it. If you're after escapism, this might just be the best fantasy film since Lord of the Rings. - Triple J EDIT

4.5/5 91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Buckle up son and get ready to go on a romantic adventure... because Crazy Rich Asians is an entertaining blast. - Triple J EDIT

7% Slender Man (2018) Slender Man is both unscary and really boring. The storytelling is weak and it's disrespectful to a generation of internet who not only loved him, but also created him. - Triple J EDIT

4.5/5 96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) The tone of this movie is interesting -- the stakes are both dramatic and high, but it's balanced with a lot of fun, tongue and cheek dialogue. - Triple J EDIT

4.5/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Goes to show that despite being a big, beefy blockbuster, you can still do something that's well shot and considered. - Triple J EDIT

4/5 90% The Breaker Upperers (2018) [Madeleine Sami and Jackie Van Beek's] chemistry, biting wit, and on point improvisations are genuinely mint. - Triple J EDIT

3/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) If this movie were a carbohydrate it'd definitely be about as complex as white bread. But admittedly, it is pretty interesting if you've ever been curious what a literal small and low stakes MCU movie looks like. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 91% Brothers' Nest (2018) It's balanced and refreshingly contemporary. - Triple J EDIT

2.5/5 56% Tag (2018) Despite the fact that it's a real story based on real people, Tag never really gets further than those initial stunts of gags... It's a movie with a hell of a lot of padding. - Triple J EDIT

5/5 89% Hereditary (2018) Hereditary is a confident film that just knows it's going to mess you up no matter what. - Triple J EDIT

2.5/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) If you want to see a perfect example of a once-loved and brilliant movie franchise being milked bone-dry, then the prequel spinoff "Solo" is the movie for you. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 is just like Deadpool 1; it's Ryan Reynolds being sassy in red spandex, f***ing s*** up for two hours. It's entertaining and funny as hell, but ultimately unsurprising. - Triple J EDIT

4/5 79% Breath (2018) The movie's strength also lies in its subtly, making it feel incredibly intimate and authentic. - Triple J EDIT

2.5/5 38% Anon (2018) You can't steal from every single stylistic choice from the history of sci-fi thrillers and not expect a complete train wreck. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Avengers: Infinity Wars is clearly a superhero flick for everybody. At times this works, and at times its excessiveness works a little bit against itself. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 80% Unsane (2018) Gripping, successfully suspenseful, it'll keep you on the edge of your seat, but it'll also probably be remembered in a few years as "That iPhone movie that Steven Sod knocked together for fun between productions after un-retiring." - Triple J EDIT

2/5 16% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) It's a fun watch. As for the plot itself, yeah it's going to be predictable as ever, but that's part of the cheesy charm. You'd be mad to take this movie seriously. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) It's like Wes Anderson on steroids. Yes, that's possible. - Triple J EDIT

4.5/5 96% The Death of Stalin (2018) [Armando] Iannucci goes out of his way to really push the envelope to create some super memorable caricatures from living memory. - Triple J EDIT

4/5 91% Love, Simon (2018) Love Simon is up there with your first kiss or first pancake on a Saturday morning; it's not perfect, but it's still sweet as hell. - Triple J EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
4/5 88% Annihilation (2018) Intelligent, original and exactly what Hollywood really needs right now. - Triple J EDIT

45% Air Bud (1997) Who wouldn't love a story about a homeless golden retriever who runs away from his alcoholic clown for a father, Norm, to shoot hoops? - Triple J EDIT

4/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Lady Bird might just be the new classic of the comic of age story. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 97% Black Panther (2018) Who would have thought that taking a risk would actually work. - Triple J EDIT

2/5 46% Red Sparrow (2018) When you've got talent like Jen Lawrence fronting your movie, the least you could do would be to just to develop her character. Just a little bit. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 89% I, Tonya (2018) Margot Robbie gives an incredible performance as Tonya. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) But whether you're in it for the music or just for the ride, Baby Driver is an entertaining car movie with an engine and a beat. - Triple J EDIT

4/5 78% Atomic Blonde (2017) Atomic Blonde is a chick fronted, action spy flick with teeth. - Triple J EDIT

2/5 70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Albeit quite generic, it's a pretty well constructed horror movie. - Triple J EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
4/5 92% Ali's Wedding (2017) Ali's Wedding works because it doesn't feel the need to compare cultures or focus on the differences. Instead, it chooses to look at how similar we all are, when we're all a bit of a dopey, smitten kitten. - Triple J EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
4/5 85% It (2017) It follows a slower pace, which is fitting for a psychological horror. - Triple J EDIT

2.5/5 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) At times I felt like I was watching a live action Gentleman's Playbook for 16 year old boys whose biggest dreams are owning a designer suit. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 86% Battle of the Sexes (2017) The emotional stakes never really feel all that high throughout. - Triple J EDIT

4.5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) It's a very self aware continuation, but not a complete replicant. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 91% Good Time (2017) Before you grind your teeth reliving the trauma that were the five Twlight movie [Robert Pattinson] previously starred in, he's actually great. - Triple J EDIT

2.5/5 86% American Made (2017) Barry Seal isn't even really a hero, but he's not that great of a criminal either. He just seems to be a string of one liners and even when he's knees deep in coke, he's still just that little bit lame. - Triple J EDIT

3.5/5 82% Brigsby Bear (2017) it's really messed up, but the SNL guys do really seem to find that sweet spot. - Triple J EDIT

2.5/5 40% Justice League (2017) It's so middle of the road, it may as well be the James Blunt of superhero movies. - Triple J EDIT

1/5 34% Jigsaw (2017) Jigsaw: failing to pick up the pieces since 2010. It's a massive shame for what was once a playful and fun horror movie franchise. - Triple J EDIT
