The popularity of Elvis Presley has barely waned in the four decades since his untimely passing in 1977. That's why it's rather unfathomable it's taken this long for a big-budget biopic to come along. But the moment has finally arrived and how you react to Baz Lurhmann's Elvis will likely depend on your opinion of his past work. If you're a fan of Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, and The Great Gatsby, this equally lavish extravaganza should be right up your alley. For better or worse, Luhrmann has an auteurial...

Back in 1995, Amy Heckerling reimagined Jane Austen's Emma into one of the greatest teenage comedies of all time, Clueless. The film and Heckerling's quietly brilliant screenplay ultimately highlighted the timeless nature of Austen's writing and how her characters and narratives can be plonked into a modern setting and miraculously still work flawlessly. Taking a cue from Heckerling, stand-up comedian/actor Joel Kim Booster has taken Austen's Pride and Prejudice and deftly spun it into one of the best gay rom-coms of recent times. A gorgeous ode to the power of friendship and a...

In 1995, Andy got a toy from his favourite movie. This is that movie. With these two opening sentences, Pixar instantly establishes the initially confusing context behind Lightyear; a Toy Story spin-off that's not quite a prequel in the purest sense. These are not the adventures of the beloved toy voiced by Tim Allen over the course of four near-perfect films. It's an origin story of a character we have technically never met. It's the movie that inspired the toy in the movies that we know and love. While Lightyear can't quite...

Witnessing Jurassic Park in 1993 was a life-changing moment. It was the blockbuster to end all blockbusters and my eyes practically burst out of my skull at the sight of what Steven Spielberg had cooked up. For the last 29 years, Universal Pictures has frantically attempted to recapture that lightning-in-a-bottle moment with a series of sequels that have never come close to the magic of the original. While the two recent Jurassic World films both performed staggeringly well at the box office, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who...

After millions of fans spent more than three decades pining for a sequel to the seminal 80s action classic Top Gun, that dastardly global pandemic meant the wait for Top Gun: Maverick became even longer. With more covid-induced release date delays than you can count on one hand, the highly-anticipated sequel finally arrives in cinemas 36 years after its predecessor. For those watching the record books, that's the second-longest gap between a movie and its sequel in cinema history (Mary Poppins Returns pips it by a few decades). As...

Way back in 1923, Walt Disney and his animation partner Ub Iwerks got their start by producing a series of silent Alice Comedies short films featuring a live-action child actress inside an animated world. In 1988, Touchstone Pictures flipped this concept by blending cartoon characters into the real world in the masterpiece that was Who Framed Roger Rabbit. There are many who have longed for a Roger Rabbit sequel for the last 34 years. That blessed day may still come. For now, you've been granted the next best...

In a case of auspicious timing, a queer love story set in the days of the Soviet Union will arrive in Australian cinemas at a time when Russia faces global condemnation for its horrifying war on Ukraine. However, special one-night-only screenings of Peeter Rebane's Firebird are actually timed to coincide with International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia on May 17. A sweeping epic that's somewhat damaged by its hokey screenplay, Firebird ultimately soars on the backs of its two leads whose intoxicating chemistry crafts a captivating gay romance...

After more than a decade of films that mostly followed the same tried and true formula, Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems determined to offer something different, particularly its commitment to completely shattering the notion of reality by virtue of its newfound obsession with the "multiverse" concept. Disney+ shows like WandaVision, Loki, and What If...

The sweeping British melodrama Downton Abbey represents one of the last great successes of broadcast television before the advent of streaming services changed the way programs were consumed. From 2011 to 2015, millions of viewers tuned in each week for the upstairs-downstairs exploits of the aristocratic Crawley family and their domestic servants. A feature film followed in 2019 as a way to bookend the popular series. But strong reviews and a worldwide box office of almost $200 million mean it's time to venture back to Downton for an unexpected...

It's been over a week since I experienced one of the most singularly unique films I've ever witnessed and I'm still struggling to find the right words to properly describe its majesty. A visually stunning and emotionally resonant masterpiece, Everything Everywhere All At Once might just be the best film of the year. That's a mighty big call to make in mid-April, but it's genuinely difficult to fathom another piece of cinema leaving such an indelible impression. A film that will completely overload your brain and heart in the...
