Palm Springs is a colourful and fun take on the time-loop sub-genre; a genre that has been poked and prodded in every which way for decades since Groundhog Day. If you’re looking for a summer flick filled with light laughs, this one is for you. In saying that though, Palm Springs also cynical and bittersweet at times.
Taika Waititi’s new film is a creative take on WWII misery and is absolutely hilarious at times, as it is upsetting, and unfortunately that does mean it’s a little tonally off, but its strength is in its children – they drive this film. And the debut performance of Roman Griffin Davis as the lovable Nazi-obsessed ‘Jojo’ is one of the most memorable of the year.
200 Cigarettes is a gem of a New Year’s Eve ensemble comedy starring A LOT of talented Hollywood actors including Ben Affleck, Casey Affleck, Dave Chapelle, Martha Plimpton, Kate Hudson, Janeane Garofalo, Courtney Love, Christina Ricci and Paul Rudd just to name a few.
This year’s Aussie and Kiwi Film Fest opener is a heartwarming (true) love story of epic proportion. Ali’s Wedding, although sometimes a little too sweet for my taste, is an ambitious and refreshingly unconventional love story of a minority that’s still very misunderstood in Australia.

Directed by Janicza Bravo, Lemon is set to be one of the most twisted indie comedies of the year.
New Netflix comedy series Glow (Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling) sees Alison Brie smack some b-tches up.
A refreshing and hilarious take on modern politics through the insane rivalry and rage of two former college friends. A relevant commentary on the state of the world right now.
A wonderful feel good romp, bursting at the seams with nostalgia and classic 80s tunes. It’s Once but with lovable teenage misfits.
‘A black and blue comedy’ – a pretty accurate tagline for Catfight, a movie that sees Anne Heche and Sandra Oh literally beating each other into comas. This trailer is intense… and hilarious.
