  • Destiny

    tl:dr: Destiny is a fantastic shooter attached to a lacklustre story. How can something be deeply predictable and generic yet utterly compulsive and engaging at the same time? It’s a bizarre paradox and one that Bungie’s Destiny offers players. Well worth playing, but just know what you’re getting into.

  • Into The Storm

    A disaster film that’s also a disaster on every level of storytelling.

    September 3, 2014 17:38
  • Boyhood

    Despite its impressive ambition and unprecedented form, it’s the emotional authenticity of this coming of age tale that makes it so memorable.

  • What We Do In The Shadows

    This gut-buster of a mockumentary is a bloody delight from start to finish.

  • The Reckoning

    Writer/director John V. Soto delivers his best film yet with this tight, taut and compelling thriller.

    September 1, 2014 11:44
  • The Grandmaster

    The rushed storytelling fails to live up to the spectacular visuals, but it’s still a knockout of a film.

    September 1, 2014 11:43
  • Predestination

    While its internal logic may not hold up under scrutiny, this is one admirably wild slice of sci-fi boosted by Sarah Snook’s revelatory lead performance.
