77% Far from Men (2015) "Writer/director David Oelhoffen has crafted a soulful, slow-burning western with Far From Men, which is as morally rich as one would expect given its source material, but also considerably more compassionate. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jul 30, 2015

89% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) "Pitting Binoche against Stewart is a smart move, as we're literally watching the push and pull of two generations of talent... It's a fascinating relationship that lingers in the mind -- just like this film. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted May 7, 2015
65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) "...sticks pretty close to the formula of its predecessor, but it's saved by its sly humour, with digs flying thick and fast. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted May 3, 2015
83% While We're Young (2015) "While Stiller's Josh may be worried about losing his edge, Baumbach should have no such fears. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Posted Mar 26, 2015

Posted Mar 26, 2015

52% The Interview (2014) "While Rogen and Goldberg's stance is clearly anti-North Korean government, the duo don't exactly wave the American flag high either, with the film throwing some hits the way of its own country. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Feb 12, 2015

Posted Jan 14, 2014
94% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) "Incisive, irresistible and often very funny, Inside Llewyn Davis also proves itself to be a poignant and quietly profound meditation on what it means to be an artist. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

63% One Direction: This Is Us (2013) "Perhaps the nicest surprise of the doco is that, despite emerging from the manufactured pop machine, these boys feel refreshingly grounded and they're not taking their success for granted. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 16, 2013
27% Jobs (2013) "It admittedly feels like something of a missed opportunity, with director, Joshua Michael Stern, often more concerned with checking off bullet points than digging into the complexities of its leading man. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 10, 2013
