      The Many Saints of Newark (2021) As a Sopranos prequel, The Many Saints of Newark is fantastic. As a film, it's perfectly fine. - Film Bunker

      Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) Shang-Chi was a spectacle. It was fresh, and fun, and engaging throughout. It was exactly what you would expect from Marvel, and it was refreshing to see a new addition to the ever-growing roster of Marvel heroes on the silver screen. - Film Bunker

      EMMA. (2020) The strength of Emma. isn't in how it diverges from the source material; it is what has been found within the pages of the novel. - Film Bunker

      Bombshell (2019) Bombshell may not be an important film, but it has a very important story to tell, and I will recommend it for anyone, like me, who might achieve catharsis from it. - Film Bunker

      Little Women (2019) Little Women legitimises the female escapist film without taking away from the source material's warm, gooey centre. - Film Bunker

      Jojo Rabbit (2019) JoJo Rabbit does not make you feel better about the holocaust, but is sure as hell makes you feel better about mankind. - Film Bunker

      Frozen II (2019) While the cynical adult in me inwardly groaned at the prospect of seeing this film, my inner child was singing along with the colourful characters and, sometimes, it's nice to let go and give in to that naive joy. - Film Bunker

      The Report (2019) Watching The Report is like reading a long-form New York Times article; you find yourself intrigued, hooked, and eventually, feel more intelligent having consumed it. - Film Bunker

      The Day Shall Come (2019) While waiting for Morris' sophomore feature film was a test of patience, I found it was definitely worth it; The Day Shall Come is the auteur at his most unapologetic, and it is a glorious sight to behold. - Film Bunker

      Measure for Measure (2019) The setting and social commentary within the piece elevate it to something a little more than a ballsy local picture, and while it does have its issues, it is definitely worth a viewing. - Film Bunker

      Hustlers (2019) What could have been a film weighed down by its own agenda presented its main characters as living, breathing, complex individuals--shying away from the empty 'girl power' rhetoric that a lot of Hollywood features try to feed the masses as feminism. - Film Bunker

      Judy & Punch (2019) Judy and Punch is a mixture of the dark revisionism of The Favourite with some Monty Python-esque flair. This is probably my favourite Australian film of the year so far, and is a showcase of the universal, yet unique, stories this country has to offer. - Film Bunker

      Joker (2019) We are not given a genre-bending Joker film that taps into the fascinating anarchistic chaos and oddly enticing charisma of the character, we are instead given a sub-par remake of 'Taxi Driver' with the DC logo attached to it. - Film Bunker

      Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) The thing is just... messy, but like a Jackson Pollock painting, I found myself unable to look away. Did I enjoy my time watching it? Well, yes, I did. But do I know why? Not in the slightest. - Film Bunker

      Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan (2019) This is a film that was made with good intentions, and did the best that it could with some difficult subject matter. Is it a revolutionary piece of war cinema? No, but it doesn't need to be. - Film Bunker

      Late Night (2019) While the presence of Emma Thompson raised my interest, I didn't hope for much more than a cheap The Devil Wears Prada knockoff. Thankfully, I was left pleasantly surprised by what the film had in store for me. - Film Bunker

      Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Is this the best Spidey-outing in the last twelve months? Well... not really. However, as an epilogue for the MCU, and a worthy sequel to Homecoming, it does excel. - Film Bunker

      Yesterday (2019) Essentially, it's a nice, charming film that will make you feel warm and fuzzy, and will serve just fine as something to flick on when you're looking for entertainment on a hard day's night. - Film Bunker

      Toy Story 4 (2019) If you see this as an epilogue to the series, it fits the description well, providing adequate footnotes to a story already so well-told...[this] is a film that we didn't think we needed, but I for one am happy with its existence. - Film Bunker

      Men in Black: International (2019) My child-like wish for something entertaining was bogged down by strange narrative decisions, re-treading of concepts, and irritating characterisation. - Film Bunker

      Tolkien (2019) I enjoyed Tolkien wholeheartedly. With a small, quaint film such as this, I hardly have high expectations. However, some stylistic flair and a good amount of heart boosted Tolkien above the average biopic. - Film Bunker

      Aladdin (2019) Is Aladdin a perfect film? By no means. Is it a shameless cash grab? Probably. Despite this, it's a hell of a lot of fun, and my cynicism was counteracted by its charm. - Film Bunker

      Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) For the people who are interested in Bundy, but not invested in the story long enough to dedicate an entire four hours to his tapes, this will serve as an engaging enough vehicle to educate them. - Film Bunker

      All Is True (2018) While this film may bore the new generation of English classrooms, it is safe to say that this film is probably a more accurate representation of the literary icon than 'Shakespeare in Love'. - Film Bunker

      Avengers: Endgame (2019) Despite usually being a passive moviegoer, I found myself cheering mid-scene, crying for an embarrassingly long portion of the runtime, and leaving the cinema completely blown away. - Film Bunker

      The Doors (1991) Oliver Stone's The Doors is a grandiose, highly kinetic, film that flourishes in its own excess. - Film Bunker

      Supersonic (2016) The expert crafting of the narrative leading up to the final moments earns itself the right to maintain convention. - Film Bunker

      The Dirt (2019) Netflix's The Dirt tries to tell a 'no-nonsense' account of Motley Crue's notoriously lavish existence, only to end up confused (and, at points, unnecessarily misogynistic). - Film Bunker

      Hellboy (2019) In essence, I found this film rather like a greasy McDonalds breakfast-sometimes it tastes horrible, but when you are hungover and mostly braindead, it hits just the right spot. - Film Bunker

      Dumbo (2019) In essence, the film kept me entertained throughout and I didn't really question its existence too much. While the whole thing was quite Disney-fied, it was very nice to be able to see Tim Burton work his magical realism once again. - Film Bunker

      Captain Marvel (2019) Captain Marvel has given us an engaging female character that does not come off as an empty 'agenda'. Larson's magnetic performance paired with an entertaining buddy-cop romp and some character moments makes this another strong entry into the MCU. - Film Bunker

      A Dog's Way Home (2019) A film like this is created to manipulate any empathetic human being to cry. If you love dogs, the lump in your throat is pretty much guaranteed, even if the film doesn't seem to really earn it. - Film Bunker

      Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Basically, the film is as dumb as a rock but fun as hell. Do you want some interesting ideas around AI without an ensuing existential breakdown? Then this is the film for you. - Film Bunker

      Mary Queen of Scots (2018) This is a film with some good intentions that failed to deliver. While the story of both of these monarchs has never failed to intrigue the masses,Mary Queen of Scots strips the titular characters of their nuances, much to the detriment of the film. - Film Bunker

      The Mule (2018) If you want a serious entry into the drug conversation, then this won't satisfy your urges. However, if you want a light, interesting story with a likeable, if not a bit grizzled, lead, this should do the trick. - Film Bunker

      How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) Toothless and Hiccup are back, and that is all you need to know before buying tickets to see this film. What will keep you engaged is the mature, natural growth of its characters and the feelings of reconnecting with and saying goodbye to old friends. - Film Bunker

      Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Does it reach the extremely high standards of the first Harry Potter film? I would say no, it does not. But it is extremely likeable, and there was not one second in the entire two-hour run that I was bored. - Film Bunker

      Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Vol. 2 feels less like a sequel made to surpass its predecessor, and more like a continuation of a story. Much like a comic from your childhood, you know you can pick it up, continue with beloved characters, and escape into a world you are familiar with. - Film Bunker

      Split (2016) Split surprises the most avid of Shyamalan watchers, presenting a well-made thriller, indistinguishable from the director's latest fair. - Film Bunker

      Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) What might have been an average movie with the wrong lead turns out to be an excellent vehicle for Holland's budding talent and Keaton's experienced charm. - Film Bunker

      Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) The second Kingsman outing feels as if it is trying to relive its glory days ... Rather than feeling like the second outing was capturing the joys of past experiences, I felt like it was instead trying to hit us over the head with, "Do you remember this?" - Film Bunker

      Blade Runner 2049 (2017) As the credits rolled, I sat in my seat both physically numb (as I said, cinema seats are unforgiving) and emotionally drained. This is sci-fi cinema at its absolute finest. - Film Bunker

      Thor: Ragnarok (2017) After a disappointing second venture with Thor: The Dark World, it seems Waititi has saved a superhero that was struggling to find his place in a, frankly, more interesting MCU ensemble. - Film Bunker

      Murder on the Orient Express (2017) My interest was maintained, but I would rather watch a film like this at home. This isn't the film to watch if you're seeking a thrill-ride; still, Murder on the Orient Express has enough steam to chug your attention through a couple of hours. - Film Bunker

      Justice League (2017) Superhero films are no longer just superhero films-they are comedies, fantasies, heist films, spy films, hybrids of genres that work to keep the audience invested in a box-office flooded with men in capes. Justice League is just a superhero film. - Film Bunker

      Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Avengers: Infinity War wasn't merely a film, it was an event-my usual cinema was jam-packed with eager fans, buzzing with excitement. The most astonishing moment of this entire experience was the weight of leaving the cinema in a heavy silence. - Film Bunker

      Isle of Dogs (2018) For those of you looking to step into the wonderful world of Wes, Isle of Dogs is an adventure story with so much soul and warmth that it could become a gateway drug to his body of work. - Film Bunker

      Deadpool 2 (2018) This sequel may have given us more of the same, but when the initial feature is that awesome, it is a great achievement to recapture some of that blood-soaked magic. - Film Bunker

      Skyscraper (2018) Overall, the film is a mix of Towering Inferno and Die-Hard-just not as good as either of those flicks. I didn't expect a cinematic masterpiece, but unfortunately, this popcorn flick was a little too weighed down by its own ambition. - Film Bunker

      BlacKkKlansman (2018) In any other hands, this film could have been relegated to a mediocre biopic toeing the line between political validity and a safe marketability. What we get instead is a film that will stay in your mind for a while after leaving the cinema. - Film Bunker
