3.5/5 42% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) It may not be what the Millennium faithful would expect, nor is it an entry that would fit perfectly into the Scandinavian Noir genre, but the film does well for itself; succeeding due to stylistic flair, thrills and a committed performance by Claire Foy.‐ The AU Review

4/5 62% Suspiria (2018) It could throw you into the entire gamut of emotions on a massive scale or it could leave you scaling up the cinema steps due to sheer boredom. Either way, there really isn't a remake like this out there. For that alone, Suspiria is to be applauded.‐ Impulse Gamer

2.5/5 91% A Ghost Story (2017) A Ghost Story is like one of the bedsheets in the film. It looks nice, it flows well, but like the bedsheet, there are some holes and major stains on it.‐ The AU Review

4/5 70% To the Bone (2017) It is a credit to Noxon and the cast that To the Bone works as well as it does, considering the delicate subject matter.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 79% The Beguiled (2017) The Beguiled is a worthy remake that shows Coppola's gradual ascension as a filmmaker and with a fantastic cast and crew in tow, the film, like the female characters, is not to be messed around with.‐ The AU Review

1/5 50% Kung-Fu Yoga (2017) Kung Fu Yoga is a massive disappointment for fans of Jackie Chan, fans of cinema, Indian fans, Indian people in general and is just a complete embarrassment for all involved.‐ The AU Review

4/5 70% Happy End (2017) Who knew that the scariest thing in Happy End is not voyeurism, not euthanasia, not psychosexuality, not animal cruelty but white privilege?‐ The AU Review

4/5 79% The Forest of the Lost Souls (A Floresta das Almas Perdidas) (2018) The Forest of Lost Souls is a worthwhile horror experience thanks to its grounded story, Lopes' assured direction, Lobo's beautifully surreal cinematography, Gracio's retro creepy musical score and Love's standout lead performance.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) John Wick: Chapter 2 is a very serviceable sequel that could have been an improvement over its predecessor if it weren't for its ambitions far exceeding the film's grasp.‐ The AU Review

4.5/5 94% The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016) The Innocents may be quite a harrowing experience, but the subtle, sensitive storytelling, the assured direction by Anne Fontaine, the complimentary production values and the fantastic performances ensure that The Innocents is a film is worth the effort.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 69% Free Fire (2017) Free Fire is Wheatley's most accessible film that entertains with its wonderful cast, the witty, quotable script and confident direction. It may not hit a bullseye with perfect accuracy, but unlike the characters, it's certainly ain't a bad shot.‐ The AU Review

4/5 90% Their Finest (2017) Their Finest is a definite crowd pleaser that is sure to entertain audiences with its insanely likeable cast, its old-fashioned filmmaking (whether its own or the commentary) and its high amount of charm.‐ The AU Review

4.5/5 80% Colossal (2017) Colossal is one of the best movies of the year and for those who are complaining that we do not see original films in the cinema - well this is one of them.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 No Score Yet Eternity (Eternité) (2016) For those who are initiated to Tran's body of work or those who are willing to step outside the norm of conventional film-making may find Eternity a sensual delight that casts a spell of wonder and poignancy that one would definitely appreciate.‐ The AU Review

4/5 94% Being 17 (Quand on a 17 ans) (2016) Being 17 is a thoughtful coming-of-age story with great performances, honest storytelling, beautiful cinematography and subtle direction that is sure to delight; if you can overlook its questionable morals.‐ The AU Review

3/5 93% The Eagle Huntress (2016) I truly admire the message and found the journey of Aisholpan very inspiring and if it inspires one person out there to be more like her, then the film can't possibly be bad. But the film-making distracts me to the point that I can't give it full credit.‐ The AU Review

4/5 75% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Kong: Skull Island is a lot of fun, with many spectacular monster battles, a likeable ensemble cast, outstanding visual splendour and a standout performance from John C. Reilly. ‐ The AU Review

2.5/5 25% Fist Fight (2017) Despite the efforts of the cast and its simple yet ripe premise and some surprisingly coherent storytelling, Fist Fight just isn't worth the wait due to its very patchy script.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 83% Silence (2017) Silence is not one of Scorsese's best films, but if you like his earlier films that dwell on religious themes, this compares favourably and is clearly a passion project for Scorsese that is well worth checking out.‐ The AU Review

1.5/5 29% Night School (2018) If I were to attend to a night school such as the one portrayed in this film, I would be down on my knees, pleading until my throat bleeds to be expelled from the class, because Night School is one of the most insufferable comedies of the year.‐ The AU Review

4/5 85% A Simple Favor (2018) A Simple Favour may not be the drastic change of pace people would expect due to the marketing involved, but it is still an extravagantly entertaining trifle, thanks to Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively and Paul Feig's devilishly playful direction.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 94% Beast (2018) Beast is a compelling character study thanks to Jessie Buckley's performance, despite the fact that it struggles to reach its goals due to director Michael Pearce's overzealous direction and some story contrivances and problems. ‐ The AU Review

4/5 93% Searching (2018) With clever and immersive storytelling, great performances, rich characterizations, surprising twists and ample amounts of food for thought, director Aneesh Chaganty has made a great feature debut with Searching. ‐ The AU Review

2/5 23% Mile 22 (2018) Don't go into this film looking for quality action of Uwai's earlier films or even Berg's earlier films. But out of the two STX studio films out in August, Mile 22 is far funnier than The Happytime Murders, so it definitely has that going for it.‐ The AU Review

4/5 92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) It is with great pleasure to say that Crazy Rich Asians is a load of fluffy, old-school rom-com fun, all thanks to likable leads, memorable characters, visual pizazz and some welcome thematic weight thanks to its respectful look at family traditions.‐ The AU Review

2.5/5 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) More like Bohemian Parody.‐ The AU Review

2/5 93% Fences (2016) Most of the performances are good and August Wilson's screenplay shines at times. But the flat, blatant direction, the unsubtle storytelling and Mykelti Williamson's performance just inspired me to want to build a fence around it.‐ The AU Review

4.5/5 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) Insightful, thoroughly well-written, amazingly acted, deservedly touching and downright hilarious, The Edge of Seventeen needs to be seen if we want to get more movies of this quality within the well trodden genre.‐ The AU Review

1.5/5 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) It seriously boggles the mind that Assassin's Creed can assemble so much talent and yet achieve so very little.‐ The AU Review

3/5 60% Allied (2016) The talent involved really should have made Allied a fantastic film, but the final result only comes out as an entertainingly average experience. Still, we'll always have Marion Cotillard.‐ The AU Review

3/5 50% The Frontier (2016) The Frontier serves as an excellent showcase for its actors as well as a striking calling card for Shai's directorial chops. However, the flaws in its storytelling and character development do keep it from being as great a film as it could have been.‐ The AU Review

4.5/5 79% American Honey (2016) American Honey is a hypnotic, optimistic and euphoric experience that certainly deserves the accolades and buzz it got from Cannes onward and it is another cinematic gem from director Andrea Arnold. Sasha Lane is a true star.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 22% Inferno (2016) Retaining the fast pace and the ticking-clock type of storytelling of Angels and Demons while rarely going in to dull territory of The Da Vinci Code, Inferno entertains once again with its ridiculous schlock.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 71% Trash Fire (2016) Thankfully consists of more fire than trash.‐ The AU Review

4.5/5 95% The Love Witch (2016) The Love Witch is sweet and provocative, proving an entertaining tribute to the films of the 60's and 70's, with fantastic performances and meticulous detail from multi-tasking director Anna Biller.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 36% Blair Witch (2016) Blair Witch is still a very competent horror film and Wingard still brings the requisite scares with energy and ferocity. Those who expect the minimalist approach of The Blair Witch Project will be disappointed...‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 88% My Scientology Movie (2017) My Scientology Movie provides a laugh-filled surrealistic experience that suitably issues a complementary alternative to the more methodical documentary Alex Gibney's Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 60% War Dogs (2016) War Dogs was a much more substantial film than I ever expected from the trailers.‐ The AU Review

4.5/5 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) Kubo and the Two Strings is one of the best films of the year and I highly recommend it. With its spectacular animation, thrilling action scenes, likable characters and a great message, Laika have officially cemented themselves as an animation powerhouse.‐ The AU Review

4.5/5 82% Sausage Party (2016) Sausage Party is a fun time at the movies, but with its thought-provoking plot and its gloriously excessive attitude towards political incorrectness, it's bound to be elevated to cult status alongside the South Park film and Team America: World Police. ‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 58% Bad Moms (2016) Bad Moms is a lot of dumb fun with an incredibly game cast, led by the winning Kathryn Hahn. While it may not be as good as the 2003 cult classic comedy, Bad Santa, it is light years away from the 2011 comedic cesspool, Bad Teacher.‐ The AU Review

2/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) Apart from some decent acting and interesting story ideas, The Legend of Tarzan was a disappointment for all involved. But thank Samuel L. Jackson for his entertaining performance, as he makes the film more entertaining that it has any right to be.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 91% The Devil's Candy (2017) The Devil's Candy is fitting proof that director Sean Byrne is no one-trick pony and can deftly change genres with skill and verve. ‐ The AU Review

4/5 99% Under The Shadow (2016) Under the Shadow shows that horror is still alive and well in cinema and not only do I hope that Iran does more genre films, I really hope it brings Iranian cinema out of the shadows and into the mainstream.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 No Score Yet Alice In Earnestland (Seong-sil-han Na-la-ui Ael-li-seu) (2015) Alice in Earnestland is a well-executed and horrifically dark comedy, but is also a twisted journey about a woman who has to overcome all obstacles to determine her own future.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) While it may not rank high in the Pixar canon, Finding Dory is still great fun for the whole family, has a simple but important message and it shows that's Pixar reign is far from over.‐ The AU Review

3.5/5 75% The BFG (2016) The BFG is an entertaining and magical film that will certainly delight children of all ages as well as Roald Dahl fanatics.‐ The AU Review

4/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) The Conjuring 2 is a great sequel that although it doesn't reach the heights of the original, it makes up for it with its relentless pace, the committed cast, James Wan's directorial eye and a standout performance in Madison Wolfe.‐ The AU Review

4.5/5 92% The Nice Guys (2016) The Nice Guys is a hilarious breath of fresh air that gives us new perspectives on Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, but also a new star on the rise in Angourie Rice.‐ The AU Review
