No Score Yet The Resurrection of Jake The Snake Roberts (2015) Jake The Man makes for pure documentary gold, with his salty turns of phrase, busted heart, and that tiny sliver of hope which he clings to like a boa constrictor even in his darkest hours.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

60% Glee: The 3D Concert Movie (2011) Sure, it's flamboyant and saccharine, but with all the cast in top form, this is also infectious, uplifting, and occasionally stirring stuff.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

83% Potiche (2011) While it's largely lightweight, this delightful comedy is easily carried by the undiminished star power of Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

89% Certified Copy (Copie Conforme) (2011) An esoteric, sometimes stubbornly paced slice-of-life that recalls a middle-aged Before Sunset, Certified Copy is an almost-love story that ultimately drifts between moments of magnetism and tedium.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

98% The Loved Ones (2012) Debut director Sean Byrne has carved out a flick to stand beside Brian De Palma's high school horror classic Carrie, such is the beauty and brutality of his execution. It's the best entry to the Aussie horror canon since Wolf Creek.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

95% The Social Network (2010) Clever, cutting and debateable, The Social Network should inspire discussion -- most likely played out on Facebook -- for months to come.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

27% Charlie St. Cloud (2010) In the darkened anonymity of the theatre, you'll be enjoying every sappy twist along the way.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

87% Boy (2012) Beautifully realised and touching on serious issues, this moving film is propelled by big laughs and an even bigger heart.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

54% The Killer Inside Me (2010) The Killer Inside Me ultimately registers as a startling curio that you may gasp at now but forget later.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

85% Beneath Hill 60 (2010) Driven by a fine script and top performances, this powerfully affecting drama reveals an astonishing untold Australian war story.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

83% Mademoiselle Chambon (2010) Elevated by first-rate acting and brilliantly choreographed, this film proves that simple stories can often be the most absorbing.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

26% Law Abiding Citizen (2009) An entertaining thrill ride but not much more.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

40% 2012 (2009) Wow special effects and a top supporting cast can't override the numbing length of this best-of disaster movie blockbuster.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

44% The Box (2009) Although an improvement on Southland Tales, Richard 'Donnie Darko' Kelly's cryptic moody thriller has a far-fetched premise that is not helped by a script filled with holes.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

94% The Cove (2009) This tense doco covers many disturbing issues at the same time capturing incredible images at great personal risk.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

81% Bandslam (2009) Though not entirely naff, this teen film's casting of Vanessa Hudgens is clearly an attempt to get High School Musical fans on board, but overall this is a charming effort.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

42% The Limits of Control (2009) A filmmaker who is always cerebral and occasionally very soulful, Jarmusch -- fascinating even at his most tepid -- could do better to have a lot more red blood flowing through his recent work and a little less ice water.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

69% Synecdoche, New York (2008) A haunting meditation on ageing, the purpose of art, and the nature of mortality.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted May 8, 2009
29% Fast & Furious (2009) Diesel's bassoon-voiced, low-watt charisma seems best placed in this franchise, and there is an undeniable spark with his foil Walker, who's all white teeth and Californian tan.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

64% High School Musical 3: Senior Year (2008) Trumping the first sequel, and approaching the quality of the original, High School Musical 3: Senior Year is a truly winning reprise.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

70% American Teen (2008) Despite its genuinely seductive veneer, American Teen doesn't have anything to say about the adolescent condition that American Graffiti didn't already cover off in 1973.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

No Score Yet Monkey Puzzle (2008) Forstmann, who has nursed this film toward a difficult conception, has delivered a production that works well as a human emotion mystery.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

34% Space Chimps (2008) There is genuine sparkle in the voice work and more than a few jokes that really do hit the sweet spot.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
