Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
60% Glee: The 3D Concert Movie (2011) "Sure, it's flamboyant and saccharine, but with all the cast in top form, this is also infectious, uplifting, and occasionally stirring stuff. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 10, 2011
83% Potiche (2011) "While it's largely lightweight, this delightful comedy is easily carried by the undiminished star power of Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Apr 20, 2011
88% Certified Copy (Copie Conforme) (2011) "An esoteric, sometimes stubbornly paced slice-of-life that recalls a middle-aged Before Sunset, Certified Copy is an almost-love story that ultimately drifts between moments of magnetism and tedium. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

66% The American (2010) "Those expecting rollicking thrills may be disappointed but this succeeds as a finely acted slow-burning espionage film. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Nov 8, 2010
98% The Loved Ones (2012) "Debut director Sean Byrne has carved out a flick to stand beside Brian De Palma's high school horror classic Carrie, such is the beauty and brutality of his execution. It's the best entry to the Aussie horror canon since Wolf Creek. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Nov 2, 2010
96% The Social Network (2010) "Clever, cutting and debateable, The Social Network should inspire discussion -- most likely played out on Facebook -- for months to come. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Oct 25, 2010
93% The Town (2010) "Featuring a highly impressive ensemble cast, this smart and stylish thriller is hugely entertaining. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Oct 11, 2010
27% Charlie St. Cloud (2010) "In the darkened anonymity of the theatre, you'll be enjoying every sappy twist along the way. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 20, 2010
86% Boy (2012) "Beautifully realised and touching on serious issues, this moving film is propelled by big laughs and an even bigger heart. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 23, 2010
55% The Killer Inside Me (2010) "The Killer Inside Me ultimately registers as a startling curio that you may gasp at now but forget later. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 23, 2010
85% Beneath Hill 60 (2010) "Driven by a fine script and top performances, this powerfully affecting drama reveals an astonishing untold Australian war story. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 19, 2010
83% Mademoiselle Chambon (2010) "Elevated by first-rate acting and brilliantly choreographed, this film proves that simple stories can often be the most absorbing. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jun 8, 2010
63% Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) "Finds a host of familiar faces performing below their best on a time-warp trip. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Apr 21, 2010
25% Law Abiding Citizen (2009) "An entertaining thrill ride but not much more. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jan 26, 2010
39% 2012 (2009) "Wow special effects and a top supporting cast can't override the numbing length of this best-of disaster movie blockbuster. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Nov 11, 2009
45% The Box (2009) "Although an improvement on Southland Tales, Richard 'Donnie Darko' Kelly's cryptic moody thriller has a far-fetched premise that is not helped by a script filled with holes. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Oct 27, 2009
94% The Cove (2009) "This tense doco covers many disturbing issues at the same time capturing incredible images at great personal risk. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 19, 2009
81% Bandslam (2009) "Though not entirely naff, this teen film's casting of Vanessa Hudgens is clearly an attempt to get High School Musical fans on board, but overall this is a charming effort. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 12, 2009
44% The Limits of Control (2009) "A filmmaker who is always cerebral and occasionally very soulful, Jarmusch -- fascinating even at his most tepid -- could do better to have a lot more red blood flowing through his recent work and a little less ice water. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jul 22, 2009
68% Synecdoche, New York (2008) "A haunting meditation on ageing, the purpose of art, and the nature of mortality. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted May 8, 2009
28% Fast & Furious (2009) "Diesel's bassoon-voiced, low-watt charisma seems best placed in this franchise, and there is an undeniable spark with his foil Walker, who's all white teeth and Californian tan. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Apr 17, 2009
65% High School Musical 3: Senior Year (2008) "Trumping the first sequel, and approaching the quality of the original, High School Musical 3: Senior Year is a truly winning reprise. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Dec 3, 2008
69% American Teen (2008) "Despite its genuinely seductive veneer, American Teen doesn't have anything to say about the adolescent condition that American Graffiti didn't already cover off in 1973. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Nov 19, 2008
No Score Yet Monkey Puzzle "Forstmann, who has nursed this film toward a difficult conception, has delivered a production that works well as a human emotion mystery. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Oct 24, 2008
34% Space Chimps (2008) "There is genuine sparkle in the voice work and more than a few jokes that really do hit the sweet spot. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 19, 2008
79% Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! (2008) "It's a sweet, strange soulfulness that makes Horton an out-and-out winner. " ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
