The Post is a brilliant movie based simply on the fact it stars both Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.
It tells the story of Katharine Graham (Streep) the first female publisher of a major American newspaper – The Washington Post.
Together with editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), Graham races to catch up with the New York Times and to expose a massive government cover-up.
The Post comes out in Australian cinemas this week.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
When her daughter is murdered, a mum (Frances McDormand) puts up three billboards outside of her small town challenging local law enforcement to find her killer.
It’s a dark comedy with brilliant performances from both McDormand and Woody Harrelson.
Three Billboards is screening in Australian cinemas now.
The Disaster Artist
The Disaster Artist is a movie about a… movie.
In the early 2000s a man named Tommy Wiseau decided to make his own movie. That movie is called The Room and it’s quite possibly the worst movie of all time.
The Disaster Artist tells the story behind the making of The Room.
It stars James Franco as Wiseau and Dave Franco as his best friend Greg Sestero.
The movie follows the story of the two best friends – how they met in a drama class in San Francisco and what led them to move to LA and to make the worst movie of all time.
Quite frankly it’s hilarious and you need to watch it – even if you’ve never heard of The Room.
The Disaster Artist is out in selected Australian cinemas now.
Get Out is unlike any horror film we’ve ever seen.
It’s a dark comedy horror in which nothing is really as it seems.
When Rose (Girls’ Allison Williams) takes her African American boyfriend, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), home to meet her parents things get really weird, really quick.
And then they just get weirder.
Get Out is the kind of movie that will have you guessing right up to the very end.
It’s available to watch on DVD and iTunes now.
I, Tonya tells the story of the epic rivalry between competitive figure skaters Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan in the 1990s.
The night before the two women were meant to compete for a place in the 1994 winter Olympics team, Kerrigan was brutally attacked while leaving practice.
Over the years Harding has denied any knowledge of the attack, but many believe she was the mastermind behind the crime.
If you like true crime, sports or historical events, you’ll love I, Tonya. It’s out in Australian cinemas at the end of January.

Lady Bird is the only movie that – up until recently – had a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes.
It’s a coming of age film set in the early 2000s. Lady Bird was written and directed by Greta Gerwig and it stars Saoirse Ronan.
Lady Bird will be released in Australian cinemas in mid February.
Ferdinand is a feel good animated flick the whole family will love.
The movie is based on the classic children’s picture book The Story of Ferdinand written by Munro Leaf, and centres around the kindly and dreamy Ferdinand, a young Spanish Fighting Bull who is brought up in a gruelling and competitive world where he and the other young bulls he attempts to befriend are pitted against each other and raised to believe that fighting in the ring is their only destiny.
Ferdinand is out in cinemas now – just in time for the school holidays.
