T-Meter Title | Year
99% Song Of The Sea (2014) A memorable and endearing animated entry... Song of the Sea sets itself above countless other children's films by ably appealing to both kids and much older cinema-goers on so many wonderful levels at once. - Film Ireland Magazine EDIT

97% 45 Years (2015) A moving film with an outstanding performance from Rampling, 45 Years demonstrates just how stirring human drama can be. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

59% Concussion (2015) Relying in no small part on Smith's reliably first-rate performance, Concussion is a thoughtful and interesting story neglectfully executed. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

88% The Big Short (2015) A refreshing and piercingly clever morality tale - whether you prefer the emotive, simplistic or in-depth depictions of what happened - the film hits its target. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

No Score Yet Crushed (2015) Entertaining if somewhat predictable, Crushed is a light Aussie thriller which benefits from its well-conceived setting, even if some of the film's inventiveness is underutilised. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

No Score Yet The Gateway (Curtain) (2015) Certainly an original idea, Curtain, while in many respects imperfect, is a nice reprieve for light-hearted horror fans. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

No Score Yet Sucker (2015) Sucker errs by not spending enough screen-time devising and carrying off creative cons; instead, it invests too much in sub-stories that are never fleshed out, nor as engrossing as the cons these promising characters could have pulled off. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

98% Finders Keepers (2015) The most arresting aspect of this documentary by far is Whisnant's very candid and unapologetic treatment of the dispute, asserting his rights as a buyer and using any creative opportunity to make the best out of his unusual fortune. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

No Score Yet The Ground We Won (2015) Jumping between the players and their families, tending to their farms, a night at the bar and the games themselves, the film is an affectionate and often candid portrayal of a local Rugby-crazed community. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

No Score Yet The Sandwich Nazi (2015) Filled with a motley mix of humorous and awkward interactions with astonished customers, The Sandwich Nazi is an interesting idea for a documentary, albeit with a premise too heavily stretched. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

100% Approaching the Elephant (2014) Approaching the Elephant is at once a cautionary tale and frequently thought-provoking insight into an uncommon form of education. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

89% Office (Hua li shang ban zu) (2015) Johnnie To's latest offering has combined some old school Hollywood sensibility and style with a very modern corporate sheen. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

74% The Falling (2015) The Falling could have been a great horror film, though you will have to wade through most of it to see why. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

92% The Absent One (Fasandraeberne) (2016) The Absent One is a consistently engaging thriller which manages to build momentum to a violent and intense conclusion. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

58% The Emperor's New Clothes (2015) If watching a grown man causing potential traffic hazards sounds like your thing, or Brand just gets you, then sure, go give this man your money. Otherwise, stay away, stay far, far away. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

31% Cymbeline (2015) Cymbeline's familiar Elizabethan tropes do not translate well to a modern context, nor do the constant references to 'Caesar' or 'Romans.' - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT
