BeirutBeirut (2018)
Dir. Brad Anderson
Feat. Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, Dean Norris
Meaty old-school espionage thriller with John Hamm perfectly cast as a fixer turned business consultant in war torn Beirut, negotiating the release of a kidnapped CIA agent and unraveling complex competing agendas. From the writer of DUPLICITY, MICHAEL CLAYTON and the BOURNE films.
SkyscraperSkyscraper (2018)
Dir. Rawson Marshall Thurber
Feat. Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Chin Han
Ludicrous action thriller where Dwayne Johnson plays a US war vet who provides security assessment for skyscrapers, but goes on the run after being framed for an arson attack on a building in China. Derivative but solidly constructed entertainment.
Sicario: Day Of The SoldadoSicario: Day Of The Soldado (2018)
Dir. Stefano Sollima
Feat. Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, Isabela Moner
Blistering follow-up to the acclaimed 2015 film SICARIO, with Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro returning as a federal agent and a black op embroiled in the brutal drug war on the US-Mexico border, where cartels have begun trafficking terrorists. From the writer-director team behind SUBURRA.
DragonslayerDragonslayer (1981)
Dir. Matthew Robbins
Feat. Peter MacNicol, Caitlin Clarke, Ralph Richardson
Highly under-rated medieval fantasy in which a young wizard defies substantial and often thrilling odds to defeat a malevolent dragon. Breakthrough special effects provided by ILM breathe palpable life (and fire) into the dragon creation known as Vermithrax.
Spider-ManSpider-Man (2002)
Dir. Sam Raimi
Feat. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Willem Dafoe
New-improved re-spinning of the Marvel comic book superhero that finds a perfect match of material and director, and the crucially inspired casting of Tobey Maguire as web-boy Peter Parker. It’s classic teenage outcast fantasy stuff – the nerd who gets to impress the girl (Kirsten Dunst) by kicking…
Sweet CountrySweet Country (2017)
Dir. Warwick Thornton
Feat. Hamilton Morris, Sam Neill, Bryan Brown
A sparse and beautifully shot film from the director of SAMSON AND DELILAH, telling a profound morality tale of almost biblical proportions, and putting a new, racially charged and uniquely Australian spin on a classic Western tale.
Black PantherBlack Panther (2018)
Dir. Ryan Coogler
Feat. Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o
Another massive hit, and considered one of the best of the eighteen films in the Marvel Comic Universe, and the first to feature a predominantly black cast. Chadwick Boseman as the character of T'Challa fleshes out his supporting role in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR when he returns home as the King of…
