Rating: M

Synopsis: The wild ride of maverick entrepreneur Michael Gudinski, who defied convention and revolutionised the Australian music industry.


“It’s a nod to a self-made icon, a journey through our country’s entertainment past, and a treasure trove of material captured from historical events that can never be recreated.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem

Cast: Micah Abbey, Shamon Brown Jr., Nicolas Cantu

Director: Jeff Rowe, Kyler Spears

Rating: PG

Synopsis: The story of American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb.


“With its refreshingly glitchy animation style and superb hip-hop soundtrack, the reptilian superheroes’s latest outing is a fizzing treat.”

The Guardian

“…this “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” while a half shell of those films, has its own low-key charms. It’s goofier, grosser and mostly fun.”

Haunted Mansion

Cast: LaKeith Stanfield, Rosario Dawson, Owen Wilson

Director: Justin Simien

Rating: PG

Synopsis: A single mom named Gabbie hires a tour guide, a psychic, a priest and a historian to help exorcise her newly bought mansion after discovering it is inhabited by ghosts.


“Haunted Mansion has a busy, forgettable plot that exists mainly to set up all the macabre sight gags you might remember from the ride.”


“Justin Simien’s chiller based on a Disney attraction is a grimly efficient intellectual property cash-in that’s devoid of scares.”

The Guardian

Sound of Freedom

Cast: Jim Caviezel, Mira Sorvino, Bill Camp

Director: Alejandro Monteverde

Rating: M

Synopsis: Sound of Freedom, based on the incredible true story, shines a light on even the darkest of places. After rescuing a young boy from ruthless child traffickers, a federal agent learns the boy’s sister is still captive and decides to embark on a dangerous mission to save her. With time running out, he quits his job and journeys deep into the Colombian jungle, putting his life on the line to free her from a fate worse than death.


““Sound of Freedom” takes place in, and posits to be, a tough conversation piece about the world of child sex trafficking, but it’s hardly any more informational than a horror movie about bogeymen.”

Roger Ebert

“The QAnon-tinged thriller about child-trafficking is designed to appeal to the conscience of a conspiracy-addled boomer.”

Rolling Stone

Gran Turismo

Cast: David Harbour, Orlando Bloom, Archie Madekwe

Director: Neill Blomkamp

Rating: M

Synopsis: Based on the unbelievable, inspiring true story of a team of underdogs – a struggling, working-class gamer, a failed former race car driver, and an idealistic motorsport exec – who risk it all to take on the most elite sport in the world.


“The latest motorsport story film adaptation takes the world of Gran Turismo and turns it into an approachable, entertaining watch, with some minor hiccups along the way.”


“Who better to send to see the new GT film than someone who hasn’t played it since the dawn of the millennium? Erm…”

Top Gear


Cast: Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Issa Rae

Director: Greta Gerwig

Rating: PG

Synopsis: Barbie suffers a crisis that leads her to question her world and her existence.


“Barbie takes a ride from her dream house to reality as Little Women writer-director Greta Gerwig takes another cultural icon and lovingly subverts it.”

The Guardian

“…Barbie is uneven and the script could have used a lot more tightening up, however, it’s definitely a fun film to watch.”

City Hub Sydney


Cast: Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon

Director: Christopher Nolan

Rating: MA15+

Synopsis: The story of American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb.


“Given Nolan’s preference for shooting on Imax 70mm film, the picture has a depth of detail you could drown in.”

The Guardian

“Christopher Nolan masterfully captures one of history’s defining figures.”

Asteroid City

Cast: Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks

Director: Wes Anderson

Rating: M

Synopsis: Following a writer on his world-famous fictional play about a grieving father who travels with his tech-obsessed family to a small rural Asteroid City to compete in a junior stargazing event, only to have his world view disrupted forever.


“Like many of his films, it contains visual reminders of a children’s storybook. While there are shadows, they look as if they have been painted on.”

“Led by Willem Dafoe’s Actors Studio guru, the cast is united by a somnambulant mantra that invokes the power of art – and the imagination – to absorb the delusions of an insane time. I found it very moving.”
