Ten Picks For Sydney Film Festival 2017

A Finnish comedy, an exploration of racism in Australia and a film about a super pig: here are our top picks for Sydney Film Festival 2017!

Big Screen: Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

“Even the villains of the movie blow most other Marvel films out of the water. The Guardians aren’t chased by generic bad guys… They’re chased by former employers who are p*ssed that the team broke their contract.”

Big Screen: Martin Scorsese’s Silence

When this master director has been nursing a project for over two decades, our expectations are sky-high. Does ‘Silence’ deliver?

Big Screen: xXx 3 – The Return of Xander Cage (and Vin Diesel)

Sweet stunts, cool guys, one-liners… The new xXx film is gon’ give it to ya. James Ross gives you a few good reasons to check this one out.

Big Screen: The Edge of Seventeen

“The Edge of Seventeen is charming in its sincerity, even if it does think there are nerds in high school with six-packs.”

Big Screen: Makoto Shinkai’s Your Name

Makoto Shinkai has been called the next Hayao Miyazaki by a lot of critics with his latest release.

Big Screen: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

“There’s never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan. Not only are we getting new films in the franchise without a Jar Jar Binks in sight, the movies are being made by directors who love the series as much as we do.” James Ross reviews Rogue One.
