In the height of the historic bushfire season, I was attempting to write small-town romance and snowball fights. The irony was certainly not lost.
Disney’s ‘Cruella’ desperately wants us to have sympathy for the devil, aiming for something like a Lady Joker. Alas, she comes up woefully short.
‘Antebellum’ is a tour-de-force that will soon enter the zeitgeist, and thusly, spoiled. Go see it while you can.
‘Judy’ is not notable for the narrative, but rather the accuracy of Zellweger’s portrayal of the legendary singer/wreck. It’s a scene, man.
The ACT may have just legalised the use of cannabis, but those seeking the drug for medicinal purposes are being left behind. ‘Green Light’ tells the story of two men risking their freedom to treat those in need.
Joaquin’s Joker is an ugly, purposeless film, one that attempts to take us through the transformation into pure evil, but comes up well short.
