Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
90% Brothers' Nest (2018) With all of five speaking roles, and a single location, it's a work of pleasingly compact dimensions.‐ The Neighbourhood Paper (Australia)

72% Ready Player One (2018) While the references accumulate, it begins to feel as though the film is telling us that a person's identity can be indexed to a list of culture consumed.‐ The Neighbourhood Paper (Australia)

3/5 54% Three Summers (2017) Elton knows how to locate the laughs in his material - and he's a shameless crowdpleaser - but his emotional reach only goes skin deep.‐ Guardian

93% Logan (2017) Director James Mangold shoots and orchestrates action with an appreciable clarity, and when he synchs up with the pounding drums of Marco Beltrami's score, the mayhem has a lively intensity.‐ Junkee

76% Jasper Jones (2016) Perkins, finding the sweet spot between childish goofiness and adult drama, keeps things fleet, funny, and just the right side of suspenseful; tonally, the film is a match for any Spielbergian 80s coming-of-age classic.‐ Guardian

27% Suicide Squad (2016) The air almost immediately starts leaking out of the film once it starts. The whole first half-hour is a riot of blunt exposition, useless flashbacks, and false starts. This is a movie that doesn't even know how to begin.‐ Junkee

91% Birdman (2014) When high style meets dumb ideas it can be hard to tell which way is up.‐ Junkee

72% Neighbors (2014) The ferocity [Byrne] brings is almost enough to compensate for the limp approach the film takes to its own premise.‐ Junkee

15% 47 Ronin (2013) 47 Ronin is a film for nobody, made by committee. Like its samurai, it is masterless.‐ Junkee

85% The Turning (2015) If nothing else, The Turning is probably value for money. Quantity counts for something, after all, as do good intentions. But they can't ever fully satisfy.‐ Junkee

66% Lucy (2014) The character Lucy may be all brain, but the film is all heart.‐ Junkee

66% Nasty Baby (2015) Sebastián Silva's Nasty Baby is an amiably funny traipse through the lives of a group of coddled inner-city hipsters, until suddenly, viciously, it's not.‐ Junkee

91% The Witch (2016) Even as the events carry a tinge of absurdity, Eggers' sure technique ensures a thick current of dread runs throughout.‐ Junkee

97% It Follows (2015) It Follows is the real deal.‐ Junkee
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2015
93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) A globe-trotting spy thriller with the brisk pace and the visual wit of a Looney Tunes cartoon.‐ Junkee
