Why did we CERTIFY this movie?

The Whale is a heartbreaking and intimate cinematic journey of broken souls in search for redemption. Brendan Fraser gives a transcendent and career-defining performance; one of those rare roles that seems to draw on a performer’s personal experiences and harness the lessons learned into something quite profound. Its beauty may just leave you feeling a little more hopeful for humanity too. We recommend you bring an entire box of tissues to this one.

Why did we CERTIFY this movie?

If Knives Out breathed life back into the whodunit genre, then Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery kicks it up a notch. It’s the perfect thrill ride and proof that—when done right—a sequel can effectively capture the magic of the original and elevate the experience to a new level. Director, Rian Johnson masterfully introduces an hilarious and rich set of new characters (Ed Norton, Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr and the incomparable Janelle Monáe) to accompany the return of Daniel Craig as the delightfully intuitive detective, Benoit Blanc. This is a must-see experience made for the big-screen! Don’t miss out. Glass Onion is in theatres for ONE WEEK ONLY starting Nov 23rd!

Why did we CERTIFY this movie?

Part memoir, part ode to the power of movies, Steven Spielberg revisits his family roots in The Fabelmans, turning the lens inward for a richly intimate and enchantingly entertaining and touching film. The Fabelmans takes you on one of the most acclaimed directors-of-all-times’ personal experiences of making movies, interwoven with the tapestry of growing up and navigating the human experience while escaping into the magical world of cinema. The Fabelmans is more visceral and effective with the communal experience of seeing it in a movie theatre. Simply put, if you love movies, this film is for you.

Why did we CERTIFY this movie?

Directed by Mark Mylod (Game of Thrones, Succession), The Menu is a dark, deliciously twisted satire that will leave you immensely satisfied – and hungry for more. Ralph Fiennes is intense and by turns hilarious, while Anya Taylor-Joy is captivating. Entertaining and thought-provoking, The Menu is a delightfully wicked whodunit reminiscent of Knives Out. We give it four Michelin stars.

Why did we CERTIFY this movie?

Writer/director Martin McDonagh's (Three Billboards Outside Epping, Missouri and In Bruges) latest film provides a stunning canvas for cinematographer Ben Davis and wonderfully honest performances from Colin Farrell (who won Best Actor in Venice), Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan, from a screenplay which also took top honour in Venice. Whether you commiserate with Farrell's character Padraic or Gleeson's wishes to be left alone, or both, you can expect to be moved with an edge of melancholy while enjoying lots of laughter.

Why did we CERTIFY this movie?

An instant classic rom-com that’s up there with the best in the genre. Bros is fresh, contemporary and unique, with something to say. It’s a huge blast of fun that will remind you why laughing in a crowded theatre between mouthfuls of popcorn is the only way to truly enjoy a great comedy.

Why did we CERTIFY this movie?

If we had to classify writer/director Jordan Peele’s third film, we’d go with “auteur-ed B-movie”. Nope's sci-fi moniker feels rooted in those black and white UFO movies of the ‘40s and ‘50s but the storytelling, humour and pace are pure Jordan Peele. It’s been a while since we’ve sat in a theatre, nervously laughing with strangers, gripping our armrests in anticipation, and cheering on our protagonists. Beautifully shot with IMAX cameras, Nope is the perfect movie to share with friends and chat about after the curtain drops.

Why did we CERTIFY this movie?

Quite simply, this movie is fun! It's the quintessential popcorn movie with thrills, action and even the occasional heart tug. If you're a fan of 1986's Top Gun, you're going to love Top Gun: Maverick. And if you never saw it, it doesn't matter; you can just strap yourself into the cockpit and enjoy the ride.

We should mention, see this on the biggest screen you can 'cause you're gonna feel the need for speed.
