Posted Nov 5, 2013
4/5 93% Captain Phillips (2013) " Hanks produces one of his best performances as a man weakened by a deadly threat." — Daily Liberal
Posted Oct 26, 2013
4/5 82% Prisoners (2013) " Villeneuve gives his cast a big opportunity to explore those emotions of helplessness and desperation, and they grab it." — Daily Liberal
Posted Oct 20, 2013
2/5 64% 2 Guns (2013) " What is evil then? In this case it's everything - the film is not clean in character, story or look." — Daily Liberal
Posted Oct 11, 2013
3/5 67% Turbo (2013) " Ryan Reynolds brings the 'I can' attitude to the room to make Turbo a nicely likeable character you want to cheer for." — Daily Liberal
Posted Oct 5, 2013
5/5 97% Gravity (2013) " Alfonso Cuaron intertwines moments of terror with sadness repeatedly and to the film's benefit, toying with his viewers' emotions." — Daily Liberal
Posted Oct 5, 2013
2.5/5 9% Runner Runner (2013) " No opportunity is wasted to glamourise the underworld beneath the digital poker tables, showing the big league as lavish and extravagant surrounded by beautiful people and plenty of money." — Daily Liberal
Posted Oct 5, 2013
2.5/5 50% White House Down (2013) " Olympus Has Fallen earlier this year took a look at the frailties of the White House and what one man would do for his country. Now, White House Down does... exactly the same thing." — Daily Liberal
Posted Sep 19, 2013
2/5 42% Red 2 (2013) " It should be straight to the loony bin with this lot - but the announcement of a third film means the madness is far from over." — Daily Liberal
Posted Aug 31, 2013
2/5 29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " This sequel in many ways is a repeat of its predecessor, but the film hits rock bottom as it attempts to make a potential rape scene a point for laughter." — Daily Liberal
Posted Aug 24, 2013
4/5 68% Elysium (2013) " Blomkamp's return to working with Sharlto Copley gives the film a creepily outlandish villain for the film's benefit as the hopes and fears of Earth dwindle on a corrupt few on both sides of the coin." — Daily Liberal
Posted Aug 17, 2013
3.5/5 50% Now You See Me (2013) " "The closer you look, the less you see" is an interesting analogy applicable to many things in life, and as a running motif in this film from Louis Letterier becomes something of an epiphany." — Daily Liberal
Posted Aug 11, 2013
4/5 89% The World's End (2013) " Pegg and Wright's tales of camaraderie among impossible situations is something to be admired... alcohol may not solve the problems of the world, but for these guys it'll do nicely." — Daily Liberal
Posted Aug 6, 2013
4.5/5 76% The Help (2011) " Tate Taylor's film isn't heavy on preaching, nor is it overloaded with saccharine sentiment. Rather, it has a real bite to it." — Moviedex

Posted May 26, 2011
3/5 78% Melancholia (2011) " Unlike von Trier himself, Melancholia is surprisingly uncontroversial in content, but remains an interesting take on the psychology of the apocalypse." — Moviedex
Posted May 24, 2011

Posted Feb 2, 2011
3/5 66% Tamara Drewe (2010) " Tamara Drewe's general lack of cheesiness manages to make it a fun summer film that doesn't take itself too seriously." — Moviedex
Posted Jan 26, 2011
4.5/5 89% Tangled (2010) " Sure, we all know how it's going to end, but with Disney finding their classic groove again, who honestly cares?" — Moviedex
Posted Dec 6, 2010
2/5 91% Alamar (To the Sea) (2010) " Even with the cast playing themselves and a good premise, the idea to script only some of the film ends up creating a series of disconnected sequences." — Moviedex

Posted Nov 8, 2010

Posted Oct 31, 2010
3/5 55% La Siciliana Ribelle (The Sicilian Girl) (2010) " While The Sicilian Girl has a more biographical lean over a showcase of mafia bloodshed, there's still plenty of drama to go around." — Moviedex
Posted Oct 29, 2010

Posted Oct 29, 2010

Posted Oct 29, 2010
4/5 71% The Boys Are Back (2009) " The Boys Are Back is poignant in dealing with the stages of grief but lets up with a bit of fun. Scott Hicks really is back in town." — Moviedex

Posted Oct 29, 2010

Posted Oct 29, 2010
3.5/5 94% In the Loop (2009) " There's only so much wittiness and quips we can watch before we get irritated at the fact that not much actually happens." — Moviedex

Posted Oct 29, 2010
3/5 43% Robin Hood (2010) " Good but not great. The meatier story always follows the introduction, right?" — Moviedex
Posted Oct 29, 2010
3.5/5 15% Sex and the City 2 (2010) " [Michael] King has done well to maintain the wry comedy Sex and the City is so well known for, especially considering the over-stretched 146-minute running time." — Moviedex

Posted Oct 22, 2010
4/5 94% Winter's Bone (2010) " A chilling reflection of nature's darker side." — Moviedex
