Posted Jan 1, 2016
60% Sisters (2015) "Fresh, funny, and heartfelt, Sisters makes up for what it lacks in plot with a rolling succession of tear-inducing jokes and a gaggle of hard-partying characters that you would actually want to buy a drink for. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jan 1, 2016
92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "With its breakneck pacing; intelligent and measured reverence for the original films; punchy action sequences; and ambitious plotting, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a near perfect continuation of the most beloved movie franchise of all time. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Dec 16, 2015
60% Joy (2015) "Devoid of special effects, but supercharged through the wit of its writing, the richness of its characterisation, and the evangelical profundity of its subtext, this film about one truly amazing woman rates as an eye-popping, breathtaking achievement. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Dec 10, 2015
79% Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005) "Strong, unrelenting, moving and bracingly exciting, Revenge Of The Sith is a fitting end to a truly great series. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

64% Spectre (2015) "A rock-solid Bond flick that would have been hailed an immediate winner if it weren't for the fact that it has to shudder and shake in the darkness of the enormous shadow cast by its predecessor. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Nov 5, 2015
91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "Entertaining and thought provoking, Bridge Of Spies gives real historical events a human face, and rates as a surprising crowd pleaser in the process. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Oct 8, 2015
26% Pan (2015) "To lazily but wholly appropriately use a very hoary old cliché, Pan is fun for the whole family. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 23, 2015
73% Cut Snake (2015) "Artfully shot by Simon Ford, with fine period detail from production designer, Josephine Ford, Cut Snake is technically top-notch, and emotionally uncompromising, as Ayres again strides into largely virgin territory for Australian cinema. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 23, 2015

64% Ricki And The Flash (2015) "It could have used a dash of real, ragged rock'n'roll, but Ricki And The Flash remains a big hearted paean to those who live boldly and happily on the margins. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 26, 2015
60% Southpaw (2015) "There's a rawness, urgency, and intensity to Southpaw that is utterly invigorating, but there's also a rich beat of sensitivity that effectively counters its blood-specked rhythms. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 19, 2015

Posted Aug 6, 2015
9% Fantastic Four (2015) "Fantastic Four feels like a film with nobody at the wheel, as it careens around shambolically before grinding to a slamming halt as the creative fuel runs dry. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

91% Million Dollar Baby (2004) "Beautifully adapted from the stories of boxing expert F. X. Toole, Million Dollar Baby initially looks like a classic sports-movie-rags-to-riches deal, but it's when Eastwood digs deeper that the film really takes flight. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Feb 27, 2015

43% Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) "While it might not feel as complete and well-rounded as the first movie, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is a worthily prurient follow-up that offers up a whole bundle of new cinematic tricks, and a rogue's gallery of exciting new characters.

Posted Sep 19, 2014
