With award season now over many of the top films of the last year will start disappearing from the cinemas so if there are any you wanted to see on the big screen get in soon before they go.
Cinemas – These are my top award winning films
Jojo Rabbit – Based on a book and directed by Oscar winning New Zealand director Taika Waitti (most known for directing Thor: Ragnarok) the film is a dark comedy that delivers some deeply poignant moments.
Parasite – Winning a large number of Oscar’s this year, including Best Picture, this is a brilliant film that explores greed, class and society’s weaknesses in a sardonic way. Don’t let subtitles stop you from seeing it!
And as I’ve already mentioned in previous weeks, Little Women & Richard Jewell are both worth a trip to the movies!
Free Film Friday at Walyalup Aboriginal Cultural Centre – Black magic
The Walyalup Aboriginal Cultural Centre in Fremantle is showing the film Black Magic, a locally made film that looks at Aboriginal sportsmen and through that highlights the lives and stories of the Noongar people of Western Australia. Click here to book in to see this on Friday night 21st Feb 2020.
Looking for something to just relax and spend time at home with? There are so many options now between streaming services, network TV and Catch up TV or On Demand TV.
If you want to stay home and watch the ICC T20 Women’s World Cup, you can see all the games both here and from the rest of Australia on Gem!
Streaming Services – Shazam on Netflix!
With the stormy weather forecast for tomorrow Shazam is the perfect film to crank the air-con, make some popcorn and cozy up on the couch with the family. Funny, sweet and although not ground breaking cinema it is an entertaining film the family will enjoy.
And as always the Sonshine Diary also has plenty of options for your weekend plans.
Whether you go adventuring, plan to have popcorn or cosy up on the couch – I hope you enjoy your weekend plans!
