Best Of 2019 So Far – Emily Gett

As we are halfway through 2019 already, the team at Flip Screen asked us to pick our top five releases of this year. For me it wasn’t too much of a hard choice as there has been some stand-outs this year already! Notable mentions that have just missed the mark include the ridiculously good John…

Best Of 2019 So Far – Jenni Holtz

We’ve somehow made it halfway through 2019, a year with too many new releases to count! With the growing streaming market, films are becoming more accessible to audiences at faster paces. The success of Netflix originals like Someone Great and Always Be My Maybe show that the platform is for more than just television series.…

Best Of 2019 So Far – Kaleigh Howland

My top picks for films and television of 2019 so far have delivered intensely honest and artistically executed stories. They demand, or suggest, that perhaps the most compelling stories center around those we haven’t heard from, or haven’t listened to. If there’s anything we can glean by paying attention to which films and series are…

Best Of 2019 So Far – Derek Sharp

2019, you good fam? It’s no secret that 2019 hasn’t consistently delivered quality cinema, at least from where I’m standing.

Best Of 2019 So Far – Emily Maskell

Now I present to you: my personal favourite films as of halfway through twenty-nineteen. 5. Under The Silver Lake. (dir. David Robert…

‘Booksmart’: Not Entirely By The Book

In the past couple of years, we have been very lucky to be blessed with a number of great coming-of-age films. In 2016 we got The Edge of Seventeen, we were then given Lady Bird in 2017, and just last year were given Eighth Grade. It wouldn’t be fair if the yearly tradition of relatable,…

REVIEW: “One of the Strongest Directorial Debuts in History” – ‘Booksmart’ (2019)

Some films are filled with kinetic energy that has you leaving the theatre full of life. Something that hits a raw nerve deep down that only the truly greats know how to exploit. Olivia Wilde’s Booksmart does just that. She has filled her film with so much comedy and heart that it will last as…
