Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)

"After such a ham-fisted, disingenuous effort as Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, this potentially promising action franchise has taken one right between the eyes." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Sully (2016)

"The fact that Clint Eastwood continues to turn out such strong, impassioned, relevant, and entertaining work in his twilight years is nothing less than staggering." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

The Jungle Book (2016)

"Bolstered by a voice cast on top form, and punctuated with moments of thrilling action, The Jungle Book is first class family entertainment from a burgeoning master of the medium." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Apr 22, 2016

Pawno (2015)

"It might come from a couple of newcomers, but Pawno is gloriously assured." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Apr 22, 2016

Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)

"Kung Fu Panda 3 is no game-changer, but it's a solid entry into a consistently fun and funny animated franchise." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Apr 1, 2016

Zootopia (2016)

"There's rarely been so much sub in the text of an animated movie, and while it makes Zootopia a surprisingly thought provoking experience, there's also something slightly disconcerting about Disney's willingness to so keenly embrace adult themes." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Mar 24, 2016

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

"It's epic, involving, exciting, and ambitious, but there's an undeniable feeling that the best is yet to come." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Mar 22, 2016

London Has Fallen (2016)

"It starts off as a taut, straight-from-the-headlines thriller, but eventually devolves into a giddy, cartoonish fantasy, where the world's complex problems can be solved with a punch to the face and a follow-up wisecrack." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Mar 14, 2016

Looking for Grace (2015)

"Right from the get-go, Looking For Grace throws tonal consistency out the window, bouncing from broad comedy to serious drama at will, and not always seamlessly." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jan 1, 2016

The Revenant (2015)

"It might be an endurance test, but the rewards of The Revenant are plentiful." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jan 1, 2016

Sisters (2015)

"Fresh, funny, and heartfelt, Sisters makes up for what it lacks in plot with a rolling succession of tear-inducing jokes and a gaggle of hard-partying characters that you would actually want to buy a drink for." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jan 1, 2016

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

"With its breakneck pacing; intelligent and measured reverence for the original films; punchy action sequences; and ambitious plotting, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a near perfect continuation of the most beloved movie franchise of all time." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Dec 16, 2015

Joy (2015)

"Devoid of special effects, but supercharged through the wit of its writing, the richness of its characterisation, and the evangelical profundity of its subtext, this film about one truly amazing woman rates as an eye-popping, breathtaking achievement." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Dec 10, 2015

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)

"Strong, unrelenting, moving and bracingly exciting, Revenge Of The Sith is a fitting end to a truly great series." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Nov 16, 2015

Spectre (2015)

"A rock-solid Bond flick that would have been hailed an immediate winner if it weren't for the fact that it has to shudder and shake in the darkness of the enormous shadow cast by its predecessor." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Nov 5, 2015

Bridge of Spies (2015)

"Entertaining and thought provoking, Bridge Of Spies gives real historical events a human face, and rates as a surprising crowd pleaser in the process." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Oct 8, 2015

Pan (2015)

"To lazily but wholly appropriately use a very hoary old cliché, Pan is fun for the whole family." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 23, 2015

Cut Snake (2015)

"Artfully shot by Simon Ford, with fine period detail from production designer, Josephine Ford, Cut Snake is technically top-notch, and emotionally uncompromising, as Ayres again strides into largely virgin territory for Australian cinema." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 23, 2015

Oddball and the Penguins (Oddball) (2015)

"Oddball's brand of fun-with-heart will hopefully click with local kids and their parents too." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 16, 2015

Life (2015)

"This beautifully crafted drama richly personalises a man whose life story has so often been told in headlines and broad strokes." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 10, 2015

Stalkher (2015)

"StalkHer is a nifty little black comedy bubbling and bristling with surprises and invention." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 28, 2015

Ricki And The Flash (2015)

"It could have used a dash of real, ragged rock'n'roll, but Ricki And The Flash remains a big hearted paean to those who live boldly and happily on the margins." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 26, 2015

Southpaw (2015)

"There's a rawness, urgency, and intensity to Southpaw that is utterly invigorating, but there's also a rich beat of sensitivity that effectively counters its blood-specked rhythms." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 19, 2015

5 Flights Up (2015)

"5 Flights Up is one of those films that sneaks up on you." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 12, 2015

Trainwreck (2015)

"Emotionally honest in an almost shocking way, and bulging with sexual and scatological humour, Trainwreck is also a deeply humanist and utterly affecting joy from start to finish." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 6, 2015

Fantastic Four (2015)

"Fantastic Four feels like a film with nobody at the wheel, as it careens around shambolically before grinding to a slamming halt as the creative fuel runs dry." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 5, 2015

The Simpsons Movie (2007)

"The Simpsons Movie successfully makes a big experience of one of the greatest TV shows of all time." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Aug 2, 2015

Inception (2010)

"Nolan makes his far-fetched (and even occasionally ridiculous) dialogue and plotting utterly, absolutely believable within the film's finely structured framework, while never losing his grip on the dense, multi-layered narrative." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jul 20, 2015

Ant-Man (2015)

"As with all of Marvel Studios' movies, the action, humour and innate silliness is tempered with something a little more thoughtful and meditative, making for a highly entertaining mix." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jul 16, 2015

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

"Joe Johnston hits just the right tone, finding the heart of this often misunderstood character, and tempering proceedings with the perfect blend of humour, action and characterisation." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jul 14, 2015

Thor: The Dark World (2013)

"Thor: The Dark World is a wildly entertaining continuation of Marvel's dominance of the big budget action blockbuster genre, and a savvy revisit of its most difficult and ambitious piece of character mythology." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jul 14, 2015

Terminator Genisys (2015)

" somehow lovingly homages a great film while pissing all over it at the same time." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jun 30, 2015

Ted 2 (2015)

"[Ted 2] proves that Seth MacFarlane is much, much more than just a filmmaker aiming for cheap, easy giggles." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jun 25, 2015

The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)

"The Bourne Ultimatum is a fitting end to one of the finest blockbuster franchises of recent years." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jun 23, 2015

Jurassic World (2015)

"Jurassic World is so seamless and spot-on that it's difficult to fathom why it has taken Steven Spielberg and backing studio, Universal, so long to come up with a continuation of one of their biggest franchises." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Jun 11, 2015

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

"This action pioneer throws down the gauntlet to his much younger peers, and lets them know that when it comes to crunching metal, shredded tyres, terrifying villains, and flawed anti-heroes, he is the king." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted May 13, 2015

Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015)

"It's an extraordinary cinematic portrait of a deeply complex man." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
