Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

"Kick-Ass 2 may feature the most digitally connected heroes and villains in Hollywood history, but it's also an uncomfortably amoral experience."

The Great Gatsby (2013)

"Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby cements his reputation as the quasi-intellectual's Michael Bay, who destroys things with glitter instead of Transformers."

Olympus Has Fallen (2013)

"The nerve centre of American political power is pulverised in Olympus Has Fallen. Whether it intended to or not, the movie represents a turning point for Hollywood blockbusters."

Housos Vs. Authority ()

"Paul Fenech has been lobbing comedy grenades for eons. Whether he intended it or not, his latest movie is one of Australia's most brutal satires of lower class suburbia."

Movie 43 (2013)

"Movie 43 has a great deal more on its mind than poo and fart jokes. More, in fact, than most comedies that come out of Hollywood, though the mauling its received over the last couple of weeks suggest a critic isn't supposed to say that."

The Secret World of Arrietty (2012)

"Arrietty's majestically colorful look, beaming with glorious colour and light, maintains an unprepossessing aura despite its earthy grandeur."

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead (2011)

"the heart warming clarion call for self-improvement that forms the core of Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead - which turns out to be one of the most inspiring documentaries about healthy living ever made - comes as something of a surprise."

Burning Man (2012)

"Writer/director Jonathan Teplitzky offsets the grimness of making a film about overcoming grief by modelling what could have been a morbidly despairing downer into a pot of revved-up and risqué drama with a soulful core simmering beneath the bombast."

Moneyball (2011)

"Bennett's direction, loaded with mid-shots and close-ups, is packed tight, with scant breathing space, the audience forced into spit distance proximity to the characters. "
