True Story of the Kelly Gang, TheTrue Story of the Kelly Gang, The (2019)
Dir. Justin Kurzel
Feat. George MacKay, Essie Davis, Nicholas Hoult
Justin Kurzel (SNOWTOWN) directs this adventurous retelling of the Australian story of bushranger and outlaw Ned Kelly, based on Peter Carey's 2001 novel. A bold vision that favours a hallucinatory, punk rock spirit over historical retelling, with George MacKay (1917) playing Kelly with the rage of a true…
NobodyNobody (2021)
Dir. Ilya Naishuller
Feat. Bob Odenkirk, Aleksey Serebryakov, Connie Nielsen
Another enjoyably badass actioner from the director of HARDCORE HENRY (and Derek Kolstad, screenwriter of the JOHN WICK series) about a bystander who intervenes to help a harassed woman who then becomes the target of a vengeful drug lord.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden DragonCrouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)
Dir. Ang Lee
Feat. Chow Yun-Fat, Michelle Yeoh, Zhang Ziyi

While indebted to a long tradition…

Dir. Kiel McNaughton
Feat. Nathaniel Lees, Uli Latukefu, Nathaniel Lees
Ridiculously bad-ass action comedy set in South Auckland where a displaced Tongan man discovers the championship wrestling belt that was a priceless family heirloom has been stolen, and is hell bent on it's retrieval. Combining his analytical skills with his deceased father's wrestling techniques, he decides…
Ford v FerrariFord v Ferrari (2019)
Dir. James Mangold
Feat. Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal
Handsomely-mounted standard issue Hollywood biopic of how the Ford motor company entered the motor-racing game to try to topple Ferrari's supremacy at the famous Le Mans championship in 1966. Unlike RUSH (2013), and perhaps contrary to marketing expectations, the two leads do not face off against one…
