Posted Jan 5, 2012
4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011) " Far more entertaining than the latest Bond. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Dec 21, 2011
3/5 39% Cars 2 (2011) " ...Cars 2 is a bright and breezy excursion that avoids the slow patches the original had... " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Dec 7, 2011
2/5 22% Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D (2011) " ...fairly routine fare, even for kids, and aside from cool gadgets it's just a bit dull. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Oct 6, 2011
4/5 92% Senna (2011) " ...an entertaining, absorbing and inspiring documentary celebrating a champion's talent. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Sep 14, 2011
3/5 79% Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) " Flawless effects - including making a pre-captain Chris Evans look like a twig - plus top performances from the likes of Stanley Tucci, Hugo Weaving and Tommy Lee Jones, ensure an old-fashioned quality to this appealing matinee-style adventure. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Aug 11, 2011
3/5 36% Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) " The spectacle is insane and the work done by the visual effects team is staggering " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jun 30, 2011
3/5 26% Green Lantern (2011) " Green Lantern makes an effort to differentiate itself on an aesthetic level, but otherwise it's what you'd expect - a special-effects bonanza following formula. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jun 21, 2011
3/5 33% Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) " This is a darker, more soulful entry with some fun set pieces. But it's definitely wearying and no amount of candle-lit exposition can make a slight plot interesting. Time to lay anchor for good? " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jun 21, 2011
4/5 87% X-Men: First Class (2011) " A bright, bold and fun take on Marvel's mutants. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jun 2, 2011
5/5 93% Another Year (2010) " A masterful exploration of aging, family bonds, strength and loneliness. As with all his films, Leigh has reflected both the joy and the struggle of living a real life. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted May 16, 2011
3/5 85% Tracker (2011) " A relative lack of action, pared with simplistic message-movie sentiments, that hampers what in any other case is a solid movie. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted May 16, 2011
4/5 92% Source Code (2011) " An entertaining, intelligent puzzle. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted May 16, 2011
4/5 88% Rango (2011) " Even if the story about a dust bowl town's diminished water supply isn't quite thrilling enough, the film makes up for it with wacked-out dream sequences and a general oddball tone " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Mar 9, 2011
5/5 96% True Grit (2010) " Even if the movie doesn't immediately blow you away like a shotgun blast, it'll creep up on you like rattlesnake venom. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Feb 3, 2011
5/5 87% Black Swan (2010) " Climactic moments may induce nervous sniggering from audiences but such grandiose camp makes for a flamboyant and vivid contemporary classic. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jan 27, 2011
4/5 94% The King's Speech (2010) " This excellent buddy flick is an easily accessible and very satisfying comedy-drama... An intelligent, feel-good hit. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jan 20, 2011
2/5 13% Yogi Bear (2010) " I found the movie quite flat and uninteresting but then, I'm a grown-up. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jan 16, 2011
3/5 89% Tangled (2010) " With princesses and romance for the girls, sword-fighting and derring-do for the lads, Tangled ticks boxes for both genders. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jan 11, 2011
3/5 72% Megamind (2010) " A moderately amusing experience... will play better to a younger, less discerning crowd. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Dec 9, 2010
3/5 85% Easy A (2010) " "At the screening I was at, a youngish chap slouching next to me asked his friend: 'remind me why we're watching this'. 'For the girls,' was the reply. For Emma Stone, to be precise. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Dec 2, 2010
4/5 72% Machete (2010) " Rodriguez - king of the stretch-a-budget, DIY mentality - is once again paying homage to all the B-grade schlock that inspired him, and having a hell of a lot of fun while he's at it. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Nov 24, 2010
3/5 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) " This really is a more grown-up affair, and very scary, whether with the Dark Lord's manipulation of his minions in Malfoy Manor, or in Bathilda Bagshot's reptilian stare. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Nov 18, 2010
4/5 71% Monsters (2010) " Edwards' debut has more in common with Lost in Translation. Imagine Godzilla stumbling around Tokyo while Bill and Scarlett sing karaoke inside the hotel and you'll get a good idea of what Monsters is all about. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Nov 17, 2010
4/5 94% Winter's Bone (2010) " These spooky woods are a dangerous setting - here we find desperate, brain-dead trailer-trash, with moral centres as hollow as the burnt out shacks of their meth misadventures. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Oct 28, 2010
3/5 94% The Town (2010) " Best when focusing on robbing rather than knobbing... The Town is absorbing whenever the bad guys are up to no good. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz

Posted Sep 16, 2010
4/5 82% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) " Colourful, contemporary and akin to cinematic candy, Scott Pilgrim is continuously funny and endlessly inventive. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Aug 12, 2010
2/5 53% Knight & Day (2010) " The spy-caper story is as forgettable as they come and the jokes are pretty forced. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jul 22, 2010
5/5 99% Toy Story 3 (2010) " It makes sense that the film was penned by Michael Arndt, whose Little Miss Sunshine provided a similar balance of mirth and melancholy. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz

Posted Jun 28, 2010
3/5 47% The A-Team (2010) " Carnahan's movie doesn't take itself seriously at all, which adds to the lightweight charm of what is essentially Charlie's Angels with balls. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jun 9, 2010
3/5 73% Iron Man 2 (2010) " Fans of the comic book might well be satisfied. Anyone else will find moments here - it certainly looks cool - but might, like me, leave the cinema feeling a little undernourished. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted May 13, 2010
2/5 63% Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) " Someone in particular really lifts the movie %u2013 his name is Crispin Glover and he is a comic genius. You might remember seeing him in a more exciting and more humorous time-travelling movie from another era. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
Posted Apr 27, 2010
2/5 28% Clash of the Titans (2010) " This clash is more like a mild 'pressing together'. " ‐ Flicks.co.nz
