100% Scream for Me Sarajevo (2017) ...there's something insanely 'metal' at the heart of this tale...‐ FILMINK (Australia)

16/20 97% The Endless (2018) ... akin to a 'blockbuster of the mind'‐ FILMINK (Australia)

73% The Wizard of Lies (2017) Robert De Niro gives one of his best recent performances in Barry Levinson's Bernie Maddow bio.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

83% Ovarian Psycos (2016) It's this 'gang versus community group' identity crisis that appears to be at the heart of things.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

15/20 No Score Yet Jonathan (2016) This gay-themed drama occasionally tips over into melodrama, but is bolstered by a winning sense of humanity.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2017
96% Little Men (2016) a wonderful film‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2016
8/20 No Score Yet Spirit Of The Game (2016) ...hampered by banal scripting and characterisation. ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

16/20 92% Sand Storm (Sufat Chol) (2016) Quietly intense... ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2016
72% Youth (2015) Youth functions effortlessly on a hypnotic ebb and flow, and climaxes in a final sequence that is resonant and moving. We watch films in the hope that we get to have experiences like this.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

80% Man Up (2015) On the face of it, it does seem like Man Up is going to be another banal rom-com that flaccidly meanders from trope to trope, but this low key charmer is a refreshing surprise.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2015
61% Legend (2015) It's undermined by an ill-fitting score and a puzzlingly structured third act, but there's real pleasure in Hardy's bold, intense, and utterly compelling lead performance. ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2015
46% A Walk In The Woods (2015) A fun time spent in the company of great characters.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2015
84% I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story (2015) Spinney is well-deserving of the attention, and from a standpoint of sheer curiosity and fascination, knowing more about this man who created a character that we loved as children and that our children now love, is a gently poignant experience.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2015
94% Amy (2015) Despite the bittersweet irony of the story of her life being constructed from the news media's and her acolytes' cataloging of her self-destructive nosedive, there's a heartbreaking immediacy and authenticity in its telling.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2015
83% Testament Of Youth (2015) Testament Of Youth is hampered by a failure to effectively convey exactly what made it such an important work for the post-war generation.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2015
60% Run All Night (2015) Brad Inglesby's script is serviceable but it's the casting that gives the whole exercise gravitas.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2015
64% The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them (2014) A haunting meditation on love and loss.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2015
18/20 90% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) It's a beautifully executed jolt of darkly funny, smart-arsed sci-fi adventure. Welcome back Tom.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2015
71% Interstellar (2014) Tthe film falters at minor points as the script creaks under the weight of its own ambitions but there are a great many moments in this film where it transcends its genre conventions and achieves a pure cinematic profundity and sense of overwhelming awe.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2014
67% Deepsea Challenge 3D (2014) Sea exploration is his passion, and Cameron's technical proficiency and deep sense of curiosity and adventure are profoundly impressive.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2014
22% Need For Speed (2014) Does high octane Grand Theft Auto-style racing carnage and leeringly pornographic shots of exotic sports cars screaming along at top speed really make up for a poorly written script? Why, yes...yes it does‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2014
30% Grudge Match (2013) It's wise not to underestimate the sheer guilt-plated fun of watching these two old pros from different sides of the acting spectrum verbally and physically spar with one another while hauling their geriatric carcasses around a ring.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2014
15% 47 Ronin (2013) Ignore the poor reviews. The story's a cracker, the action is deftly executed and it's largely, a fun ride. ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jan 15, 2014
55% Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) The under-utilised 3D adds little to this prequel, which only serves as a sore reminder of the brilliance of the original films.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2012
0% Big Mamma's Boy (2011) While director Franco Di Chiera seems desperate to make the comedy work, it never does due to a derivative script and stilted performances.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2011
57% The Lost Bladesman (Guan yun chang) (2011) While the action is impressive, the human drama and characterisation of the potentially fascinating warrior General Guan Yu is sadly one-dimensional.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2011
30% Sanctum (2011) At times Sanctum is surprisingly ambitious and refreshingly smart and despite all its flaws, an entertaining yarn.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2011
10% Killers (2010) The script is ludicrously overcooked, with too much unnecessary exposition at the expense of laughs, while Heigl's habitual decision to play each role as a nostril-flaring, wild-eyed, squealing shrew is growing tiresome.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2010
63% Harry Brown (2010) While Michael Caine delivers a terrific performance, the film's predictable script and poorly developed characters result in an unengaging work‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted May 18, 2010
58% She's Out of My League (2010) An enjoyable ride with a cheerfully funny and realistic edge.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2010
33% Knowing (2009) Despite burning his credibility card with a chorus line of cinematic crap, Cage seems to have (finally) picked decent material, and he turns in a solid performance here.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2009
100% Two Fists, One Heart (2009) Two Fists, One Heart is an audacious, big-hearted genre piece; it punches above its weight at times, but by the final rounds of its inevitable denouement, it's firing on all cylinders.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2009
25% Friday the 13th (2009) It's almost pantomime in its "He's behind you!" stupidity, but for all its goofiness, there's still an all-encompassing enjoyment in watching a bunch of reckless, hedonistic morons being axed to death.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2009
59% The International (2009) The tepid script doesn't quite live up to Tykwer's taut direction.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2009
35% Pride and Glory (2008) As a drama, Pride and Glory is too glum, and worse, it doesn't convince.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2009
11% Big Stan (2009) If you're not a fan, then this won't do much to convert you, unless you, like Schneider, have a dubious obsession with anal rape jokes.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2008
42% Death Race (2008) While not being the most awful filmic experience available, it's certainly one of the dumbest.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2008
37% How to Lose Friends & Alienate People (2008) No bad thing, really, but a fair distance from the barbed humour of Young's book.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2008
4/5 78% Overnight (2004) Quote not available.‐ FilmFocus
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2008
16% Max Payne (2008) There simply has yet to be a decent film adapted from a video game. Why studios persist is a testament to the lobotomised throngs who encourage them by paying to see this type of gleet.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2008
61% Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) It's all curiously uninvolving, and it's only Fraser's goofy grin and slapstick physicality that hold any character interest whatsoever.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2008
52% Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008) Just make sure that you're really stoned when you see it.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2008
86% Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2) (2008) At times the creaky dialogue can be cliched, but it can't change the fact that Hellboy II is a hoot, aided considerably by star Ron Perlman's wisecracks and laconic surliness, and Del Toro's imaginative storytelling and intricate Faberge-egg visuals.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
