The Fighter (2010)

"Putting aside the characters who get unfair treatment, and the one too many segues which work clumsily to keep pace with the demands of story arc, such touches make The Fighter a better than average boxing movie." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The Green Hornet (2011)

"Michel Gondry's frivolous, exuberant film is a hard one to embrace." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Yogi Bear (2010)

"When Yogi hams it up, it's a bit like watching an old vaudeville performer whose time has passed." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Gulliver's Travels (2010)

"Even with Black's charisma, and a talented support cast, this is dull stuff." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Sarah's Key (2011)

"Scott Thomas is watchable, but her character's storyline, involving large doses of soul searching and self-discovery, isn't much better than a run-of-the-mill airport novel." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Love and Other Drugs (2010)

"The romance works, and the film's multifaceted, sprawling story produces dissonances which are often fascinating." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Megamind (2010)

"Megamind is more like a comedy for adults that children will feel comfortable tagging along to." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010)

"It won't cross over to an adult audience, but it should divert children with some prior knowledge of the books." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Copacabana (2010)

"An emotionally intelligent film this, with a keen sense of rhythm and balance from writer director Marc Fitoussi, who draws his characters with affection but never sentimentality." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Due Date (2010)

"Phillips squeezes a lot of comedy juice from the odd couple pairing and, even with a few flat moments, the film shows a remarkable ability to keep hitting its sweet spot." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The Last Exorcism (2010)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010)

"There's a potent, dreamy allure throughout much of this that will affect even those outside the core audience." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Summer Coda (2010)

"If you can forgive its clumsy moments, the film exudes a considerable sensual power. Perhaps it's not enough, but it makes me look forward to Gray's next film." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)

"The expectation builds and builds, sometimes without release, sometimes with a loud sudden noise, or the glimpse of something unexpected. While some horror fans will undoubtedly find the slow pacing dull rather than tense, I find it a breath of fresh air." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Let Me In (2010)

"At best it's on a par with -- not better than -- its predecessor. Given how good Tomas Alfredson's film was, that's not a bad achievement." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Buried (2010)

"Set in Iraq, Buried takes aim at the American industrial military complex and manages to be both a cerebral experience and a perverse, visceral delight." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Dinner for Schmucks (2010)

"The film fails to hold together as the portrait of an unlikely friendship, and the individual moments of brilliance feel like skits in a disjointed whole." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010)

"This is not a great film, but if you can accept Stone's submission to the dictates of the popcorn movie romance, I think there's a lot to like." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Easy A (2010)

"Easy A falls short of the greatness of cult High School classics like Heathers. If there were doubters, however, it does at least provide further proof that Emma Stone is a talent to watch." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The Last Airbender (2010)

The Disappearance of Alice Creed (2010)

"Sure, it's a parlour trick movie, with no great idea at its core, but props should go to Blakeson -- he's packed a remarkable amount of thrills into a one-bedroom flat location." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Please Give (2010)

Furry Vengeance (2010)

Vampires Suck (2010)

The Killer Inside Me (2010)

"It's a credit to the British director that he's captured so much regional and class detail, but disappointing that his film's conclusions are almost banal, with a contrived finale that ties too many threads together." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Cairo Time (2010)

"Nadda's camera captures it wonderfully; the simple placement of her lens is how we'd see it: looking through a crowd at eye level, looking down on a city intersection from a train window." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Matching Jack (2010)

"Lynne Renew and David Parker's script is based on a wonderful premise, but the resulting film is uneven, straddling adult drama and family-friendly tear-jerker without doing either well." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

"For those out of the loop, or too far removed from these characters' headspace, the inventiveness of the film's execution alone is not enough." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The Nothing Men (2008)

Maria Larssons eviga ögonblick (Everlasting Moments) (Maria Larsson's Everlasting Moment) (2009)

The Expendables (2010)

"Among the explosions and the blood, a forceful melancholy infects the characters and puts a dark tinge to even the most jocular banter." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Step Up 3 (2010)

"Step Up 3D reaches, on occasion, the heights of the classic Hollywood musical. It's a pity about the script." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Centurion (2010)

"There's a flat prettiness to the film, and [Marshall's] attempt to explore group tensions comes asunder, despite the talents of Michael Fassbender and Domenic West, with some awfully clichéd dialogue." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Second Hand Wedding (2008)

Greenberg (2010)

Leaving (Partir) (2010)

"Though the characters might be slightly underdrawn, writer-director Catherine Corsini delivers a bold critique of the marriage contract that's worth the ticket." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The Runaways (2010)

"[Sigismondi's] film nails a key paradox about the rock industry: a business that's all about capitalism at its most conservative and rampant, peddling a product that's all about rebellion." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Creation (2010)

"Director Jon Amiel has delivered on the promise of a good script, with a film that has a pleasing sense of forward motion, characters who suffer deeply, but are attractive because of it, morally, for the way they struggle through with love and belief." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The Waiting City (2010)

"Too often in The waiting City, there are moments that jar, misjudgments and bad calls in performance and structure that distract from the important process going on here." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Predators (2010)

"There is a point where I thought this was a misguided Apocalypse Now homage. There was another point where I thought: Adrien Brody is no Arnold Schwarzenegger. But in the end what really disappointed me were the underdeveloped character tensions." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The Horseman (2008)

"For all the rough edges, and perhaps because of them, The Horseman is compelling voyeurism, and the two leads are near on perfect." The Age (Australia)

Jusqu'à toi (2009)

"At times you want to whack this pair of self-indulgent, angst-ridden misfits over the back of the head with a plastic carry-cup, but mostly, they're a couple of charmers." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The Karate Kid (2010)

"Perhaps it lacks the simplicity that made the original such a compelling popcorn movie, but there's an ambition to the updated cross-cultural story that delivers some fascinating texture." ‐MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)
