The Change-Up (2011)

"Rehashing old jokes and plotlines, this doesn't bring anything new to the table, but the cast are in top form and there's a surprising earnestness to the story." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Submarine (2011)

"Mining similar narrative and stylistic territory to Wes Anderson, this weird and wonderful comedy drama still feels brilliantly unique." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Friends With Benefits (2011)

"This surprisingly whip-smart rom-com gleefully satirises genre conventions and is boosted by the electric on-screen chemistry between its two leads." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Beginners (2011)

"It does get a bit too cute stylistically, but the easy chemistry between the three leads ensures this adds up to a gentle and often touching charmer." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Hanna (2011)

"While the performances are all strong, the real star here is Joe Wright's inspired direction, which transforms this action thriller into a modern fairytale." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Needle (2010)

"While it may not be innovative or stylistically impressive, this modest horror flick still delivers decent scares." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

The Snowtown Murders (2012)

"It's technically proficient, and succeeds in creating a perverse atmosphere, but it doesn't create a world that you'll want to inhabit for very long." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted May 16, 2011

Your Highness (2011)

"With the comedy proving uneven, this surprisingly works better as an epic adventure ride than a vulgar farce." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted May 12, 2011

Something Borrowed (2011)

"While the screenplay reveals surprising nuance and there are standout performances, this too often succumbs to the schmaltzy tropes of the genre." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules (2011)

"There's little appeal here for those outside the film's nine-to-thirteen-year-old target demographic, but parents needn't flee in terror if they're dragged along either." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Paul (2011)

"That the film is an often hilarious love letter to other, better films is what prevents it from forging its own identity like Edgar Wright's mini-masterpieces." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
