Film Review: Honest Thief

Director:    Mark Williams Cast:    Liam Neeson, Kate Walsh, Jai Courtney, Jeffrey Donovan, Anthony Ramos, Robert Patrick Rating:     M Running Time:     99 Australian Distributor:    Rialto Distribution   At 68 years of age you could forgive actor Liam Neeson if he wanted to slow down. The good news for film lovers is that Neeson isn’t showing any sign of wanting to jump out of the fast lane any time soon. In fact while most actors have been starved of cinema time in 2020 Neeson is so hard working thatRead More


Film Review: Tenet

Director:    Christopher Nolan Cast:  John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branath Rating:     M Running Time:     150 Australian Distributor:     Village Roadshow   Movies don’t come much bigger than Tenet – with or without the current dearth of choices available on the big screen.

They did indeed, Michael Bay(Transformers) directed the very under-rated Pearl Harbour back in 2001,Read More


Film Review: Star Wars – The Rise Of Skywalker

Director:    J.J. Abrams Cast:    Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Joonas Suotamo Rating:     M Running Time:     141 Australian Distributor:     Walt Disney Studio   It has taken forty-two years to get there, but finally the Skywalker saga is drawing to a close. No other cinematic franchise has ever reached the massive heights that Star Wars has and to say that this is a beloved series is under-selling it in a very big way. It is for that reason that J.J. Abrams hasRead More
