A Quiet Place 2

A movie where you’ll struggle to eat crunchy snacks to, A Quiet Place 2 picks up after the first movie, following the Abbott family as they struggle through a post-apocalyptic world that’s overrun by monsters that are attracted by sound. The Abbott family (now down a few members) moves on from their old sanctuary, looking for survivors, and find a colony of people living on an island. But, standing between them is a lot of water, a lot of monsters and a lot of crazy people.

If you’re after something a little bit more true-crime-y, then the latest doco from BINGE may be the ticket. What Happened, Brittany Murphy? is a look at suspicious death of Hollywood actress Brittany Murphy, who was a household name in the early 2000s. Her cause of death was ruled as pneumonia and anaemia, supposedly from black mould in her apartment, but new evidence points at potential foul-play by her then husband, with the case now re-visited to discover the truth.

The Furnace

Set in Western Australia in 1897, The Furnace stars David Wenham as a mysterious bushman who has struck it rich with gold bars. The only issue is that these gold bars happened to be marked with the Crown, and therefore not his. The movie details his partnership with an Afghani cameleer as he transports his gold across the desert to a secret furnace (in order to melt down the bars and make away with the fresh gold), all the while pursued by the police. Expect a good ol’ fashion yarn, and plenty of amazing Aussie landscapes.

Redemption Day

If you enjoy Liam Neeson in Taken, but wish Neeson was in the US army, then Redemption Day is the movie for you. Captain Brad Paxton is a Marine who has returned home from a tour in Syria, where he lost a number of his men, and suffers PTSD as a result. And when his wife is abducted in Algeria while on an archaeological dig, Paxton loads up his weapons and heads to Algeria for an action-movie cliché romp.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is another triumph by director Taita Watiti. Taking place in the wilderness of New Zealand, Hunt for the Wilderpeople is about Ricky, a foster boy with the heart of a child and the vocab of a gangster, and his adopted uncle Hec, a grizzled ex-con. When Ricky’s beloved adopted auntie Bella dies, he takes to the bush in grief, only to be quickly tracked down by Hec. Thought to be outlaws by the system, they are pursued by a fanatical child care worker and her lackies and helped along by locals, wild bushmen and Hec’s survival prowess. Despite its set up, it’s anything but corny and while it may make you tear up, its far more likely to make you laugh.

Kajillionaire

Following in the footsteps of Parasite, Kajillionaire gets eye level with working class America to expose the intricacies of making a living when you haven’t got a dime. Old Dolio lives a bizarre life with her two aging parents, Theresa and Robert. Together, the three of them make scamming their business. They hustle at the post office, steal at the airport and grift at the bank. They are professionals who are scraping by in the name of rent, and they like it that way. They rely heavily on Dolio to make their plans work, and remind her often that this is just how families are. One day they convince a stranger to join them for a big job, but she turns the tables on them, when she ends up showing Dolio she is worth more than just one third of the loot.

Tenet

Directed by Christopher Nolan and starring John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) as ‘The Protagonist’, a CIA agent who is recruited to be a part of a secret organisation named ‘Tenet’, that is currently fighting a secret war through time-travel. Full of plenty of action, as well as mind-bending (and loosely scientific) theories, Tenet is worth watching a few times to ensure you follow the script.

The LEGO Movie

A hit for all ages, the world of LEGO was made better with an animated movie. Starring Chris Pratt as Emmet, an everyday worker who is mistaken as ‘The Special’, a prophesised game-changer for the LEGO universe, The LEGO Movie sees Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Channing Tatum, Alison Brie and a host of other big-name actors take on roles in every kid’s dream come true.

1917

Hailed as one of the heavy-hitters of 2019, 1917 centres around Operation Alberich and the efforts of a few soldiers to get a message to cut-off troops and leaders. Based on real events, the movie is also known for its use of long takes, with the movie appear as two continuous shots, which is no doubt another talking point in what was a critically-acclaimed movie.

The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man was a horror movie success story in 2020 — and it’s easy to see why. The Australia-American sci-fi horror film, written and directed by Leigh Whannel (Saw, Insidious) is a modern remake of the 1897 book of the same name. It stars Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Cecilia, trapped in an abusive relationship until her ex, an optics engineer, takes his own live and leaves his fortune to her. After a series of incidents, Cecilia comes to the conclusion that he faked his suicide and due to his expertise in optics, has acquired the ability to become invisible — something that no one else, especially the police, believe.
