The A-Team (2010)
I Love You Too (2010)
"These disturbing incidents pound the unsuspecting viewer into complete submission. The luminous beauty of the black-and-white cinematography framing the ugly world suggested here only serves to further shock the senses. "
Letters to Juliet (2010)
The End of the Line (2009)
Beneath Hill 60 (2010)
The Eclipse (2010)
"All that needs to be known is that the writing, direction and performances -- especially from the beautifully matched leads Hinds and Hjejle -- are of the highest calibre, and The Eclipse makes the most of every element at its disposal. "
The Book of Eli (2010)
Date Night (2010)
"There was probably never going to be a huge amount of great jokes to be found in this scenario no matter who was in the movie. Nevertheless, Carell and Fey do not really 'click' with either each other, or their respective roles. "

Where the Wild Things Are (2009)
"Jonze has succeeded splendidly in making a movie about the challenges of childhood, and it's likely the material will resonate more with the adults who read Wild Things to their children rather than delight the children themselves. "
The Invention of Lying (2009)
Cold Souls (2009)
"There's added appeal thanks to Barthes' silly but fun film via the outstanding cinematography by her collaborator, Andrij Parekh, whose arty lighting and careful framing make the film a visual treat. "

Michael Jackson's This Is It (2009)
"A visual feast is served up in former Monty Python cast member Terry Gilliam's fantasy -- credited to "Heath Ledger and friends" -- that should enthral loyal fans of the veteran's colourful film history, but is more than likely to baffle Gilliam novices. "
Astro Boy (AstroBoy) (2009)
Whatever Works (2009)
Couples Retreat (2009)
Whip It (2009)
"While Whip It follows the pattern of the majority of underdog sports dramas, Barrymore's film has a vitality, energy and heart (in the beautifully acted mother-daughter story) that's often lacking in male-centred movies. "
Julie & Julia (2009)
Looking for Eric (2010)
Stone Bros (2009)
"Tancharoen does not bring anything particularly fresh or distinctive to the song and dance elements of the story, but the new group of students (led by possible star Kay Panabaker as Jenny) deliver credible-enough performances. "
Van Diemen's Land (2009)
Valentino: The Last Emperor (2009)
Imagine That (2009)
"An uncharacteristically restrained performance by Eddie Murphy, a sharply funny supporting role filled by Thomas Haden Church, and a beguiling new child actor, Yara Shahidi, make this fantasy-comedy about the power of imagination agreeable enough. "
