Air: Movie Review

Air: Movie Review

Cast: Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Jason Bateman, Viola Davis

Director: Ben Affleck

A sports underdog story where the underdog is a major sporting company may not sound particularly enticing, but director Ben Affleck's sense of nostalgia and filmmaking prove to be a potent mix for Air.

Air: Movie Review

Damon rolls out his everyman charm as Sonny Vaccaro, a basketball scouter and shoe salesman/ recruiter for the Nike company in the 80s. With pressure on him to sign a new talent for the company with Converse and Adidas sniffing around, Vaccaro reckons an 18-year-old talent Michael Jordan is where the company should hang their hat - but everything's against Nike securing their future.

With its 1984 setting and an opening reel that defines the pop culture from the time, through to an excellent OST that uses the decade's best songs to set the tone, Affleck is keen to be evocative rather than provocative with a biographical film that's high on uplifting tone, but lower in wider drama.

But while keeping a tighter focus on Vaccaro and the Nike crew proves to be compelling, it feels like the Jordan family are kept more at arm's length and with too much reverence. The end result is that, despite a powerful performance from a commanding Davis, they feel more like unknowns than they should be. 

Air: Movie Review

It could be a case that perhaps everyone in the world knows who Michael Jordan is, but his relationship to his cinematic audience in Air is one of aloof mystery - and particularly so the one with his mother who drives so much of his story. Which may be understandable given it's about the underdogs of Nike.

Damon is winning in his doggedness, with his workmanlike charm proving to be character you need to cheer for. With humour and heart, Vaccaro emerges as Nike's saviour, but his humanity in his business interactions (as showcased in the opposing strokes proffered by Jordan's agent) gives the film a grounded edge it needs to be winning.

It's a human-fronted thriller that knows what it wants to do, and while there are moments of sagging and a feeling the soundtrack is doing a lot of the obvious narrative signposting, this is a crowd-pleasing story of rags to riches that benefits from an ensemble, and overcomes some of its occasional flaws.

R Smith. 



Eight years ago, Citadel fell. The independent global spy agency—tasked to uphold the safety and security of all people—was destroyed by operatives of Manticore, a powerful syndicate manipulating the world from the shadows. With Citadel’s fall, elite agents Mason Kane (Richard Madden) and Nadia Sinh (Priyanka Chopra Jonas) had their memories wiped as they narrowly escaped with their lives. They’ve remained hidden ever since, building new lives under new identities, unaware of their pasts. Until one night, when Mason is tracked down by his former Citadel colleague, Bernard Orlick (Stanley Tucci), who desperately needs his help to prevent Manticore from establishing a new world order. Mason seeks out his former partner, Nadia, and the two spies embark on a mission that takes them around the world in an effort to stop Manticore, all while contending with a relationship built on secrets, lies, and a dangerous-yet-undying love. 

Citadel stars Richard Madden, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Stanley Tucci, Lesley Manville, Ashleigh Cummings, Roland Møller, Osy Ikhile, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Caoilinn Springall.



After burning bridges and being cut from tour, Midge Maisel persisted through Season Four, rebuilding her career and reputation. The final moments of the season culminated with Midge leaving Carnegie Hall reinvigorated and ready to weather any blizzard. After an epiphany in front of The Gordon Ford Show’s snowy billboard, Midge is ready to “Go forward” and fight for her ascent to stardom—equipped with her quick wit and sharp tongue, and nothing else to lose. In the fifth and final season, Midge finds herself closer than ever to the success she's dreamed of, only to discover that closer than ever is still so far away.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel stars Rachel Brosnahan, Tony Shalhoub, Alex Borstein, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegen, Kevin Pollak, Caroline Aaron, Luke Kirby, Reid Scott, Alfie Fuller and Jason Ralph. The final season also sees the return of some familiar faces, including Milo Ventimiglia and Kelly Bishop.



A modern take on David Cronenberg’s 1988 thriller starring Jeremy Irons, Dead Ringers will feature Rachel Weisz playing the double-lead roles of Elliot and Beverly Mantle, twins who share everything: drugs, lovers, and an unapologetic desire to do whatever it takes—including pushing the boundaries on medical ethics—in an effort to challenge antiquated practices and bring women’s health care to the forefront.

Dead Ringers stars Rachel Weisz, Britne Oldford, Poppy Liu, Michael Chernus, Jennifer Ehle and Emily Meade.



Lizzy Hoo: Hoo Cares!? is a show about life, family and following your dreams before it’s too late, but only if they’re worth it. Having started comedy in her early 30s, she has plenty of material to draw upon, giving us side-splitting stories and leaving audiences in the palm of her hand. Lizzy looks back on father-daughter trips to Malaysia: one when she was 4 years old and a returning trip in her thirties, skydiving to her mum’s 60th, one of her brother’s backyard trout-farming dreams, and her other brother’s quest to become a famous YouTube travel vlogger. After trading in full-time office work, Lizzy is now performing in front of full houses across Australia and gaining millions of views of her stand up online. Lizzy’s engaging presence and top notch storytelling on stage leaves audiences wanting more. Lizzy Hoo: Hoo Cares!? is an hour of big laughs and good times from a comedian whose profile has exploded in five short years.

Lizzy Hoo: Hoo Cares!? will be available to stream here and you can view the official trailer here.



Alex Borstein: Corsets & Clown Suits is a deeply personal and wildly fictitious account of one woman’s attempt to f*** with perception. A night of comedy, music, and waxing rhapsodic. A unique comedic special that will lead audiences into Alex Borstein’s mind through a marriage of humour and music, Corsets & Clown Suits is equal parts provocative and whimsical. Borstein’s self-penned performance showcases her captivating form of storytelling with the help of her muse and maestro, Barcelona-native musicians, Eric Mills and Salva Rey. Alex Borstein: Corsets & Clown Suits was filmed at The Wolford Theatre—the fictional burlesque club from Season Four of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. 



Gangs of Lagos is a high-stakes, gritty, and hard-hitting action crime-thriller, with an authentic storyline centred on a group of childhood friends who each have to navigate destiny, growing up on the bustling streets and neighbourhood of Isale Eko, Lagos. It features elaborate set pieces, action scenes, and engaging dialogue, balanced by a high-octane pace and emotionally grounded story at its core. 

Gangs of Lagos starring Tobi Bakre, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, Chike Osebuka, Chioma Chukwuka and Iyabo Ojo. 



Jury Duty chronicles the inner workings of an American jury trial through the eyes of one particular juror, Ronald Gladden. What Gladden doesn’t know is that the entire case is fake, everyone except him is an actor, including James Marsden, and everything that happens — inside the courtroom and out — is carefully planned.

Jury Duty stars James Mardsen and Evan Williams.



In this extraordinary true story of faith and survival, On a Wing and a Prayer follows passenger Doug White’s (Dennis Quaid) harrowing journey to safely land a plane and save his entire family from insurmountable danger, after their pilot dies unexpectedly mid-flight.

On A Wing And A Prayer stars Dennis Quaid, Heather Graham and Jesse Metcalfe.



Generations of readers have found themselves in a Judy Blume book. Her name alone launches a flood of memories for anyone who’s gripped one of her many paperbacks. For decades, Blume’s radical honesty has comforted and captivated readers – and landed her at the centre of controversy for her frankness about puberty and sex. Now the beloved American author candidly shares her own coming-of-age story. Emmy-winning filmmakers Davina Pardo and Leah Wolchok trace Blume’s journey from fearful, imaginative child to storytelling pioneer who elevated the physical and emotional lives of kids and teens, to banned writer who continues to fight back against censorship today. With humour, sensitivity, and a healthy dose of adolescent cringe, Judy Blume Forever tells the story of the woman whose trail-blazing books changed the way millions of readers understand themselves, their sexuality, and what it means to grow up. 

Judy Blume Forever features interviews with Judy Blume, Molly Ringwald, Lena Dunham, Anna Konkle, Tayari Jones and more.



Britain and Ireland have some of the most diverse wildlife and beautiful landscapes on Earth. In this major new landmark series, Sir David Attenborough will celebrate the wonders of these islands, revealing the surprising and dramatic habitats that exist. Filmed over the course of three years, this new five-part series will investigate how the woodland, grassland, freshwater and ocean habitats support wildlife of all kinds. Using the very latest technology, each episode will capture dramatic and new behaviour across the British Isles, from battling butterflies to mighty killer whales on the hunt. Nature in these islands will prove just as spectacular as anywhere else on the planet, but it is increasingly fragile. With intricately connected species relying on habitats, and one another, for survival, we ask what can be done to protect them and the delicate ecosystems that remain, and to make these wild isles even wilder for future generations.

Wild Isles stars Sir David Attenborough.



Redefined: J.R. Smith is a four-part docuseries following J.R. Smith, whose story serves as a powerful reminder that with determination and resilience, one can overcome even the toughest setbacks and achieve success. Drafted to the NBA straight out of high school at just 19 years old, J.R. suddenly finds himself without an NBA team to call home and in search of redefining his life and career. The series picks up with J.R. as he sets a new intention for himself, getting a college education and pursuing a new athletic passion as a member of the Men’s Golf Team at North Carolina A&T, the nation’s largest Historically Black University.

Redefined: J.R. Smith will be available to stream here.
