LUCA
BY BECCA JOHNSON
FILM | JUNE 18, 2021

Luca may not be Pixar's new masterpiece and the plot beats may be overdone and fairly generic, yet it has so much heart and feels incredibly human. The animation is some of the best Pixar have given us, the characters were unique yet relatable, the voice acting was stand-out and the Italian-themed musical score tied everything together perfectly.

THE CONJURING: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT
BY BECCA JOHNSON
FILM | JUNE 9, 2021

The acting was believable, the case of Arne Johnson was interesting and returning to this universe is always a blast. However, the plot feels too jumbled and messy to pack a true punch, and it is nowhere near scary enough to invoke fear unto its audience.

CRUELLA
BY BECCA JOHNSON
FILM | JUNE 7, 2021

Boasting terrific lead performances and incredible costume design, Cruella is undeniably one of the better live action stories Disney has given us. However, the pacing issues and shoddy first half stop this from reaching true greatness.

A QUIET PLACE: PART II
BY ELLIOT LINES
FILM | JUNE 3, 2021

Back in 2018, John Krasinski forced the audience to feel the deadly silence A Quiet Place forced upon you. You wouldn't want A Quiet Place Part 2 to be a carbon copy of the first, so why not go all out and make this bigger, faster and louder, ready for the big screen experience.

TOGETHER TOGETHER
BY BECCA JOHNSON
FILM | JUNE 1, 2021

Despite its abrupt ending, Together Together may be one of 2021's best hidden gems. Helms and Harrison give career best performances, the writing feels like a warm fuzzy hug, and it is easily one of the most intimate movies of the year.

THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD
BY TRESCA MALLON
TV | AMAZON PRIME | JUNE 15, 2021

While emotionally draining, the Underground Railroad is a vital viewing experience. Each episode could be a short film in its own right, separated by chapter markers with varying play times and a different aesthetic to accompany the change of theme. The Underground Railroad is a carefully crafted labour of love from an incredibly skilful filmmaker.

HALSTON
BY TRESCA MALLON
TV | NETFLIX | MAY 20, 2021

The characteristic immaculate and expensive costuming and production design of Murphy’s work are ever present. While the writing and direction is somewhat unsatisfactory, ‘Halston’ is a moreish delight for the eyes, that offers a good time and characters that we never really get to know.

LOVE, DEATH & ROBOTS | VOL 2
BY ELLIOT LINES
TV | NETFLIX | MAY 18, 2021

With the first season being a massive hit, Love, Death & Robots makes it's return with a much anticipated second season. This anthology TV show is weird and wacky, bringing together a range of differently animated short films.
