1/5 39% The Other Woman (2014) " Never once elicits a genuine laugh or even the slightest amount of empowerment." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Apr 16, 2014
3/5 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " I was hoping for something special here." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Apr 3, 2014
2/5 77% Noah (2014) " There may be no faulting Aronofsky's ambition, but the finished product is another story altogether." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Mar 27, 2014
1/5 10% Vampire Academy (2014) " I died a little bit inside." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Mar 27, 2014
2/5 23% Need For Speed (2014) " The auto carnage lacks flair or creativity." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Mar 27, 2014
3/5 —— Les Gamins " A breezy watch with a higher laugh rate that most comedies released in the cinemas these days." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/5 42% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) " The bold and bloody visual style remains reasonably compelling and the seafaring battle sequences mark the film apart from the original." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3/5 75% Lone Survivor (2014) " Lone Survivor is a proficiently-made film with plenty to enjoy, but truly embracing it is difficult outside of an American context." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Feb 27, 2014
5/5 90% Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) " Once you begin to feel its rhythms, the film's mastery is undeniable." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Feb 13, 2014
3/5 30% Grudge Match (2013) " Although it pretty much just revels in its own crapulence, I enjoyed Grudge Match." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jan 30, 2014
2/5 46% The Book Thief (2013) " You can sense the resonance the tropes may have had on the page, but on film they stumble forth feeling clich├ęd and tired." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jan 9, 2014
5/5 99% Short Term 12 (2013) " There's an 'American' quality to its social conscience that I cannot recall perceiving in any other recent film." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jan 9, 2014
4/5 49% Thanks For Sharing (2013) " Writer/director Stuart Blumberg got me to care about the characters and their fate to a degree all too rare in medium-sized American dramas." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Nov 7, 2013
3/5 65% Thor: The Dark World (2013) " A perfectly enjoyable exercise in superheroics, and much more fun to watch than 'Man of Steel'." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Oct 31, 2013
4/5 —— Beyond the Edge " The best film of its kind since Touching The Void." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Oct 22, 2013
1/5 8% Diana (2013) " Watts is let down by the Mills & Boon-level script, and I couldn't stop wondering how the originally-cast (and more age-appropriate) Jessica Chastain might've done in the role." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Oct 10, 2013
3/5 49% Pain & Gain (2013) " An entertaining spin on macho theatrics with amusing lead performances and a bizarre true story to tell. Definitely worth the effort." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Aug 15, 2013
4/5 68% Elysium (2013) " Doesn't quite build on the dazzling potential of District 9, but it doesn't fail the previous film either." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Aug 11, 2013
3/5 86% The Conjuring (2013) " The Conjuring feels like someone chucked Poltergeist, Paranormal Activity, The Orphanage, Insidious and especially The Amityville Horror into a blender, then added a bit with a doll." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jul 18, 2013
4/5 56% Man of Steel (2013) " Superman's grand, mythic nature is both his greatest strength as a character and his fatal weakness. Man of Steel can't quite overcome this, but it's a heck of a lot of fun watching it try." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jun 30, 2013
3/5 49% The Great Gatsby (2013) " While it never stops calling attention to itself, it's still a wonder to behold." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jun 6, 2013
3/5 56% Snitch (2013) " The Rock looks like a superhero, and that undermines this film's multi-pronged approach to making a more 'grounded' Dwayne Johnson vehicle." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted May 16, 2013
5/5 78% Iron Man 3 (2013) " Superhero movies just don't get better than this." — Flicks.co.nz

Posted Apr 18, 2013
4/5 28% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) " The Transformers films should be looking to this for inspiration in how to make such a movie so rad." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Mar 24, 2013
2/5 52% Jack the Giant Slayer (2013) " Slightly more watchable than the chore I anticipated." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Mar 20, 2013
0/5 4% Movie 43 (2013) " Be afraid. Be very afraid." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Feb 6, 2013

Posted Feb 6, 2013
3/5 15% Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013) " It's never boring, but it also never gets beyond averagely good." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jan 29, 2013
2/5 90% Lincoln (2012) " A shamelessly hagiographic chronicling of the final months of the Great Emancipator's life." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jan 29, 2013
4/5 61% Jack Reacher (2012) " There's nothing groundbreaking going on here, and that's part of the charm. It's just a well-told story of a man doing what's right." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Dec 20, 2012
4/5 85% Sightseers (2013) " A one of a kind movie from one of the most exciting new directors around, equal parts hilarious; disturbing and wonderful." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Dec 20, 2012
4/5 65% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) " This film stands ably on its own, offering up generous piles of large scale fantasy underscored by genuine emotional heft and boundary-pushing visuals." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Dec 3, 2012
4/5 87% Arbitrage (2012) " Contains the kind of conventions that are fun to revisit with a skilled director and a game cast." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Nov 1, 2012
3/5 47% Bait (2012) " It's not spectacular, but it is good enough to see on the big screen." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Nov 1, 2012
1/5 12% Alex Cross (2012) " It's an embarrassment for all involved." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Nov 1, 2012
3/5 91% The Sapphires (2013) " It's just a touch... predictable. But so are many good movies." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Oct 4, 2012
4/5 81% Pitch Perfect (2012) " An impossible-to-dislike burst of positive energy brimming with winsome performances." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Oct 4, 2012

Posted Sep 27, 2012
4/5 83% Your Sister's Sister (2012) " One of the most purely pleasurable 'grown-up' films I've seen this year." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Sep 13, 2012
4/5 67% Jackpot (Arme Riddere) " The recent influx of Scandanavian thrillers and murder mysteries gets an amusingly grimy entry." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Sep 13, 2012
3/5 17% The Watch (2012) " There may be plenty of studio comedies that are better than this film, but there are more that are worse." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Sep 13, 2012
4/5 94% Moonrise Kingdom (2012) " The most Wes Anderson-ish film Wes Anderson has ever made, 'Moonrise Kingdom' won't convert any naysayers to the cause, but fans of his work will have a ball." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Aug 30, 2012
2/5 30% Total Recall (2012) " Shows little interest in the reality-bending ambiguities of the original, and is content to tell a pretty straight-forward (read: dull) spy story." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Aug 23, 2012
3/5 64% The Campaign (2012) " They could've called it Ron Burgundy Runs For Congress." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Aug 8, 2012
4/5 75% Le Chef (The Chef) (Comme un chef) " About as obvious and predictable a French comedy as you could imagine. I loved it." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Aug 5, 2012
2/5 28% Bel Ami (2012) " Pattinson fails to step up and command this film with his performance, and never settles on anything definitive for his character." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jul 26, 2012
2/5 41% Rock of Ages (2012) " A collection of pop moments already explored extensively." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jun 14, 2012
4/5 73% Prometheus (2012) " I wish more films had this level of ambition, along with the artistry to execute it." — Flicks.co.nz
Posted Jun 4, 2012
3/5 86% Nobel's Last Will " ...may feel a little bit generic when you remove the Scandinavian origins but you could do a lot worse for an evening's entertainment." — Flicks.co.nz
