Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
94% 20,000 Days on Earth (2014) " The man, the myth, and the music could only have been captured in this way, in a revealing, thrilling doco-dramatisation hybrid that's part portrait, part peering into the artistic abyss." — FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 21, 2014
—— Aussie Rules The World " That the well-meaning film is an advertisement more than an investigation can't be overcome." — Trespass
Posted Aug 1, 2014
100% All This Mayhem " Rare is the feat that both as well as All This Mayhem achieves, however: transcending whatever level of care or lack thereof the viewer has for the central activity to elicit a deep, destroying investment in the events dissected and figures immortalised." — Trespass
Posted Aug 1, 2014
61% Hercules (2014) " It's that sense of the economical and not-too-serious that flows from Johnson once more - think fun, not grim, bucking the current trend towards self-importance." — Trespass
Posted Jul 24, 2014
83% Tracks (2014) " The adaptation transposes the rhythms of her trek as a languid but never lingering odyssey, as anchored by Mia Wasikowska's relentless performance" — FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Mar 4, 2014
99% Gloria (2014) " If the film itself doesn't win viewers over with its refreshingly rounded story, Garcia's offering of a vulnerable and tenacious heroine will; make no mistake, audiences will be singing Gloria's name." — FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Feb 28, 2014
13% Winter's Tale (2014) " A fairy tale concept enlivened with average special effects, a plight predicated upon purportedly epic affection rendered with the most rote and unearned of emotion, and a tale supposedly larger-than-life but lacking in enthusiasm or investment." — Trespass
Posted Feb 21, 2014
93% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) " Films can be lifted by their performances, just as careers can be resurrected by the embrace of difficult choices. Though grounded by a resonant real-life story of struggle and survival, Dallas Buyers Club offers an example of both." — Trespass
Posted Feb 21, 2014
75% Lone Survivor (2014) " Though the film predictably finishes on just one of its number, it is in the many that Lone Survivor's components best succeed." — Trespass
Posted Feb 21, 2014
92% Nebraska (2013) " Swiftly and smartly, Nebraska becomes an ode to small hopes, big leaps, and the texture of life in all its uncertainty and melancholy." — FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Feb 21, 2014
89% Frozen (2013) " The expected Disney components are on display, from gleaming imagery to catchy songs to engaging humour, but this classically told fairytale revels in its moving modernity, crafting a strong ode to empowerment." — FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Feb 7, 2014
64% August: Osage County (2013) " Every actor is given their moment, just as every role is afforded a showpiece scene, but much of it feels like it's just going through the motions." — FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Feb 7, 2014
91% The Great Beauty (2013) " Sorrentino's film may flit between vignettes of extravagance and eccentricity, but more is always toiling underneath." — FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Feb 7, 2014
17% Zambezia (2013) " Plodding pacing, even with a 83 minute running time, only compounds the inconsistencies of a well-meaning but disappointing offering." — Trespass
Posted Apr 15, 2013
46% Beautiful Creatures (2013) " It is the encompassing mythology that is muddied and murky, complete with misogynistic renderings of female sexuality that the mystical packaging can't overcome." — Trespass
Posted Feb 22, 2013
12% Safe Haven (2013) " Whilst developments are telegraphed well in advance, a late revelation proves too ridiculous to stomach even within the melodramatic confines, consigning otherwise average escapism to the realm of the bewildering and bland." — Trespass
Posted Feb 14, 2013
91% The Sapphires (2013) " The end result is sweet, sincere, sentimental and spirited, ensuring The Sapphires is a certain crowd-pleaser. " — Trespass
Posted Aug 10, 2012
78% Katy Perry: Part of Me (2012) " Although suitably rousing and even somewhat resonant, Katy Perry: Part of Me merely presents the package expected of her sugary stage persona, in following the new music documentary formula." — Trespass
Posted Jul 5, 2012
37% Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) " Nothing more than a paint-by-numbers, cast-fuelled continuation of an uninspiring animated series." — Trespass
Posted Jun 29, 2012
57% The Dictator (2012) " Utterly inappropriate yet intermittently entertaining feature certainly has its moments." — Trespass
Posted May 16, 2012
15% Ecstasy (2012) " Its fondness for the writer and the drug film genre may be evident; however neither can turn Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy into anything more than an inferior homage." — Trespass
Posted Apr 26, 2012
86% The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012) " Silly, stylish, inventive and enchanting, The Pirates! Band of Misfits is simply good fun." — Trespass
Posted Apr 4, 2012
49% Mirror Mirror (2012) " Though the entire production bursts with cartoonish playfulness, it woefully underestimates humour and heart in the process. " — Trespass
Posted Mar 29, 2012
17% A Few Best Men " Happy with hit and miss humour that's more often the latter than former, it fails to lift from slapstick silliness, disappointing audiences looking for more." — Trespass
Posted Feb 7, 2012
74% Burning Man (2012) " Teplitzky's intimate, intricate connection to his content is key to the success of this powerful and poignant portrait." — Trespass
Posted Nov 17, 2011
24% The Three Musketeers (2011) " Think the attitude of Pirates of the Caribbean franchise combined with the energy of Anderson's Resident Evil series -- with careless comedy and pantomime pageantry thrown in." — Trespass
Posted Oct 20, 2011
98% Project Nim (2011) " Project Nim tells a sweet, strange and sad story of an incredible creature that will touch even the hardest of hearts." — Trespass
Posted Sep 29, 2011
22% The Smurfs (2011) " The current incarnation of The Smurfs bears little resemblance to the classic cartoon, in a film likely to leave anyone other than hyperactive children feeling blue." — Trespass
