Dune: Part Two

Cast: Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Brolin, Florence Pugh

Director: Denis Villeneuve

Rating: M

Synopsis: Paul Atreides teamed up with Chani and the Fremen tribespeople to get revenge on those who harmed his family.


Dune Part Two is an epic space opera that delivers on the promises made by the first film – and deserves to be seen on the big screen.

ScreenHub Australia

With jaw-dropping visuals and unrivalled battle sequences, the vistas of the desert planet of Arrakis are so overwhelming that Dune: Part Two begs to be seen on the largest screen possible.


Kung Fu Panda 4

Cast: Jack Black, Awkwafina, Viola Davis

Director: Mike Mitchell, Stephanie Stine

Rating: PG

Synopsis: Po is gearing up to become the spiritual leader of his Valley of Peace, but also needs someone to take his place as Dragon Warrior. As such, he will train a new kung fu practitioner for the spot and will encounter a villain called the Chameleon who conjures villains from the past.


While it is always lovely to see Jack Black back in this role, unfortunately, the outing, while still fun, did not have the energy of the previous entries.

TL;DR Movie Reviews and Analysis

Whilst Kung Fu Panda 4 is ultimately a step back in terms of ambition when compared to the previous three films, there’s no shortage of laughs and good intentions throughout, which ultimately helps Po and co. rise above whatever shortcomings the story presents.

The AU Review


Cast: Zendaya, Mike Faist, Josh O’Connor

Director: Luca Guadagnino

Rating: M

Synopsis: From visionary filmmaker Luca Guadagnino, Challengers stars Zendaya as Tashi Duncan, a former tennis prodigy turned coach and a force of nature who makes no apologies for her game on and off the court. Married to a champion on a losing streak (Mike Faist – West Side Story), Tashi’s strategy for her husband’s redemption takes a surprising turn when he must face off against the washed-up Patrick (Josh O’Connor – The Crown) – his former best friend and Tashi’s former boyfriend. As their pasts and presents collide, and tensions run high, Tashi must ask herself, what will it cost to win.


Luca Guadagnino’s terrifically absorbing screwball dramedy features a devastatingly cool leading lady, Josh O’Connor on rallying form and zinging extended dialogue rallies to match

The Guardian

Challengers serves itself up as one of this year’s true cinematic winners.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Burke

Director: George Miller

Rating: MA 15+

Synopsis: As the world falls, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers into the hands of a great biker horde led by the warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the wasteland, they encounter the citadel presided over by Immortan Joe. The two tyrants wage war for dominance, and Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.


The origin story of Furiosa has dazzling sequences, but George Miller’s overstuffed epic is no ‘Fury Road’.


George Miller fires up his war rig and roars across the Australian outback once more, this time telling the origin story of the fearsome Imperator Furiosa.


The Garfield Movie

Cast: Chris Pratt, Samuel L. Jackson, Hannah Waddingham

Director: Mark Dindal

Rating: CTC

Synopsis: Garfield (voiced by Chris Pratt), the world-famous, Monday-hating, lasagne-loving indoor cat, is about to have a wild outdoor adventure. After an unexpected reunion with his long-lost father – scruffy street cat Vic (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson) – Garfield and his canine friend Odie are forced from their perfectly pampered life into joining Vic in a hilarious, high-stakes heist.


The loveable but lazy orange cat finds him drawn into a reluctant adventure when he reconnects with someone from his past.

​Times Now

The plot is a little far fetched, the story is weird – but since we’re dealing with cats it’s all kosher


Haikyu!! The Dumpster Battle (Japanese Language)

Cast: Yuichi Nakamura, Kaito Ishikawa, Hisao Egawa, Yûki Kaji, Koki Uchiyama, Ayumu Murase

Director: Susumu Mitsunaka

Rating: PG

Synopsis: Karasuno High School made it through the Miyagi prefecture preliminaries for the Harutaka Volleyball Tournament, which was crowded with strong teams, and advanced to the third round by defeating Hyogo Prefecture representative Inarizaki High School, which was considered one of the favourites for the championship. Their opponent, Nekoma High School, used to have a rivalry with Karasuno, and although their interactions with each other decreased at one point, after Hinata and the others joined the club, they once again became good friends, working out together at training camps and practice games. The battle is called the “Battle at the Garbage Dump” because of the “crow” and “cat” names in the school’s name. Their play styles are completely opposite; Karasuno is super offensive, while Nekoma is a defensive team with a motto of “connection.” They will finally face their first official match with the current members, and they will engage in a heated match on the stage of the national tournament.

Bad Boys: Ride or Die

Cast: Will Smith, Jerry Bruckheimer, Chad Oman, Doug Belgrad

Rating: CTC

Synopsis: This year, the world’s favourite Bad Boys are back with their iconic mix of edge-of-your seat action and outrageous comedy but this time with a twist: Miami’s finest are now on the run.


I love the Bad Boys franchise. This one raised every bar. It’s nonstop hilarious. Innovative action beats. So much chemistry with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

Brandon Davis

RIDE OR DIE is a total blast. It’s crazy how Adil & Bilali have tapped into the strong emotional core of this series without sacrificing any of its insane fun. Smith & Lawrence bring their A-game, the supporting cast step it way up (REGGIE!), & shit blows up real good.
