Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/5 57% Bran Nue Dae (2010) The absurd pandemonium of the finale's confessions stretches to breaking point but befits a unique musical oddball that will prove strangely affecting to those swept up in it.‐ Sunday Times (Australia)

5/5 91% Up in the Air (2009) How locations, production design, editing choices and shot compositions partner with Ryan's "journey to self" is masterful, as is Reitman's inclusion of real people who speak directly to camera about being retrenched.‐ Sunday Mail (Australia)

1/5 18% The Tooth Fairy (2010) Like oral surgery without laughing gas, the latest family film to star former wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is an annoying pain we could all do without.‐ Sunday Mail (Australia)

4/5 94% Les beaux gosses (The French Kissers) (2009) A welcome departure from the usual type of Frenchy fare we receive, here be a hip, acne-tastic lesson about teens and their hot pants.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

3/5 79% The Informant! (2009) Damon transforms better than many of his A-list peers, and his Mark makeover is the reason to see The Informant!‐ Sunday Mail (Australia)

3/5 45% The Box (2009) Kelly's most accessible ambiguous odyssey to date, The Box dares you to open it up again and again.‐ Sunday Mail (Australia)

2/5 55% Prime Mover (2009) The collision of styles and genre ideas runs along a familiar road, losing control when the paint job can't disguise what's under the bonnet.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

4/5 49% Astro Boy (AstroBoy) (2009) A smart, snappy upgrade doesn't tarnish memories of a childhood favourite.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

1/5 11% Couples Retreat (2009) To avoid paying for a holiday to hell, don't see Couples Retreat. A prime contender for 2009's Worst Film, this star-studded but startlingly drab "comedy" is the kind of terrible trip you pray will be over long before it's time to go home.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

2/5 25% Fame (2009) Not going to live forever. Not going to light up the sky like a flame.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

3/5 90% Stone Bros (2009) Harold And Kumar Go To Kalgoorlie? A cruisey comedy you'll like to like, even when the buzz flickers.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

4/5 80% Van Diemen's Land (2009) Two chewed thumbs up.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

3/5 31% Aliens in the Attic (2009) Getting past the passages of forced teen coolness, this likable sci-fi romp brings some PG-tastic fun.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

3/5 47% Taking Woodstock (2009) Lee's sizeable re-creation of the planet's greatest music festival is a sanitised trip.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

3/5 42% The Limits of Control (2009) Cooler than you'll ever be, and more irritating, Jarmusch's star-infused indie overload strives to divide audiences. Mission accomplished.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

4/5 45% Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (Ice Age 3) (2009) A fun-tastic adventure that virtually guarantees enjoyment for the whole family.‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)

3/5 83% Disgrace (2008) Malkovich's unabashed performance drives a fierce fable which seems intent on forcing viewers away.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

3/5 94% Katyn (2009) Austere treatment of a terribly personal WWII tragedy keeps this Polish elegy at arm's length.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

4/5 54% Body of Lies (2008) Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe fire up Ridley Scott's terrific political thriller, which might finally drag audiences to a flick about the War On Terror.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

1/5 38% You Don't Mess With the Zohan (2008) If only the Zohan hadn't messed with us. Worse than his excruciating Chuck And Larry, Sandler seems determined to refine the unfunny comedy. Please, Mr Sandler, stop it. Please. It hurts.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

3/5 67% The Incredible Hulk (2008) More action, less poncing, than that last Hulk movie ensures a stronger response.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

2/5 18% The Happening (2008) Another disappointment from M, despite some disturbing violence and chilly moments.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

3/5 67% The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) Character depth and stirring subtext is what books are for. Adamson's Narnia adaptations remove all that pesky claptrap so that we can glide through a superficial reading.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia

3/5 27% What Happens in Vegas (2008) Hardly a massive gamble, Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher play a safe romcom hand you can tolerate.‐ Empire Magazine Australasia
