89% It Comes At Night (2017) It Comes At Night is a slow-burn family drama with thriller moments and a tone more in keeping with apocalyptic feel-bad flick, The Road.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2017
16/20 92% Wonder Woman (2017) A bright, exciting film that manages to meld the more epic "gods among us" DC-style with moments of levity and pathos.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

13.5/20 36% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) Genuinely enjoyable popcorn entertainment that's dumber than a sack of monkey trousers but fun nonetheless.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
8/20 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) ...an exercise in joyless frowning and desperately unconvincing drama. ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2016
13/20 35% Blair Witch (2016) ...yet another technically competent, above average but oddly unambitious rehash of a story we've seen many times before.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2016
12/20 76% Lights Out (2016) ...rather pedestrian...‐ FILMINK (Australia)

90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) It's a pity that such an unexpectedly effective thriller is so profoundly undone by a tonally disparate denouement.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2016
85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) Charm goes a long way, but in terms of the Coens' overall oeuvre, Hail, Caesar! is endearing but inessential viewing.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 29, 2016
15% Gods Of Egypt (2016) Gods Of Egypt offers a frequently spectacular, light, and knowingly silly good time.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2016
84% Deadpool (2016) "Deadpool fans will be gratified to see their meta merc smirking, stabbing and snarking his way through his foes, stopping long enough to make a bunch of dick jokes, before it's back to the action."‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2016
74% The Hateful Eight (2015) It certainly won't be a film for everyone, but for those who can handle the brutality and nihilism, there's a lot to love about The Hateful Eight.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2016
95% Creed (2015) Creed manages to rise above its well-worn premise and deliver a film that is at once stylish, engaging and ultimately moving.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2015
44% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) Scouts Guide proves profoundly unsatisfying, a mishmash of tones and gags that you've seen done better, elsewhere, many times before.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2015
17% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) This is a $70 million movie with A-list stars who really should have known better and fails to deliver much more than the odd bit of interesting monster design and frequently unintentionally hilarious dialogue.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2015
14% Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) Ghost Dimension falls well short of the mark.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2015
71% Crimson Peak (2015) There's a massive hole in the roof of Crimson Peak's slowly sinking mansion, and the characters never seems to notice it... If you, like them, can ignore the similarly-sized holes in the movie's plot, you'll likely have a good time.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2015
65% The Visit (2015) An utterly enjoyable and oddly affecting experience that's not only Shyamalan's best film in years but also a cracking thriller in its own right.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2015
87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) It also, naturally, has an unforgettable soundtrack and so, ultimately, can be mostly forgiven for lacking the danger and unapologetic truth of the album it's named for.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2015
66% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) Against all odds The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is surprisingly enjoyable.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2015
93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) It can be your mission, if you choose to accept it, but there are many superior options for your entertainment dollar.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2015
33% Poltergeist (2015) The Poltergeist remake is dull and almost entirely devoid of scares.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted May 20, 2015
92% Ex Machina (2015) One of the smartest, slickest and most intriguing sci-fi thrillers in recent memory, with a standout performances from Isaac and Vikander and confident, minimalist direction from Garland.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted May 7, 2015
97% It Follows (2015) It Follows is well worth a look and if you go in not expecting the second coming of horror, you'll likely have a good time with this unique, slowburn supernatural fable.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2015
32% Chappie (2015) "Chappie, Blomkamp's third film, is a mess. However it's a fascinating, occasionally glorious one that feels, for better or worse, a grimier, more personal movie from the South African director." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2015
79% WYRMWOOD: Road Of The Dead (2015) Violent, fast-paced, frequently silly, occasionally hilarious and unapologetically Aussie, Wyrmwood is a cult film that hits far more than it misses. ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2015
15/20 85% Under the Skin (2014) The good news is that Under The Skin does indeed break out of its own formula. The bad news is that it does so in a way that seems to delight in obfuscating its message, and is wilfully, gleefully impenetrable.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
