70% Last Chance Harvey (2009) Thanks to the grace and skill of Thompson and Hoffman, Last Chance Harvey manages to rise above its plot and deliver quite a bit of pleasure.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

59% The International (2009) The film is poorly plotted, which means characters have to stand around explaining things to each other a lot.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

61% The Reader (2008) The Reader does not succeed as a coherent film, despite some fine work by actors and the filmmakers' best intentions.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

86% Ghost Town (2008) In the end, Ghost Town delivers. Right now, we need all the laughs we can get. Especially kindly ones.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

40% He's Just Not That Into You (2009) Ginnifer Goodwin does better than most in her role as the obsesed cyber-stalker. But underneath the easy laughs, it's a mean-spirited film.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

35% Pride and Glory (2008) I thought this film was a mess.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

62% Changeling (2008) Changeling will engage both your fears and compassion, I have no doubt. And it will stay with you long after vou have left the cinema.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

94% Milk (2008) Van Sant has a powerful story to tell, and he tells it with craft, as it was written.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

79% Gran Torino (2009) The film becomes black and white in its resolution. This tendency to simplify into good guys and bad guys worries me about many Eastwood films.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

67% Revolutionary Road (2008) There are no wasted moments in this film. There are many you can't watch without wincing.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

95% The Class (2008) It's an absorbing, provocative film. When he left teaching, Francois Begaudeau became a writer and a film critic. He could make a career onscreen now, if he chose.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

63% Marley & Me (2008) It's no huge deal, but it's nicely done, and it has its values right.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

81% Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008) Is this the old Woody Allen, back on form? Well no.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

92% Frost/Nixon (2008) Whoever would have imagined that two men facing each other in a room, with producers and minders pacing off camera, would make for such suspenseful cinema?‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

90% Hunger (2009) This is filmmaking at its most powerful.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

54% Choke (2008) I laughed. I thought it bizarrely funny, but the laughter can become uneasy.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2008
No Score Yet Crooked Business (2008) It's one of those crooks-chasing-crooks films, and it has some nicely silly moments, and a wide array of heavy but not particularly bright identities.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

13% The Women (2008) I'm afraid I could neither laugh at, nor take seriously, most of this movie.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

86% Dominick Dunne: After the Party (2008) It's an absorbing and honest film, but a sad one.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2008
63% Brideshead Revisited (2008) With all its failings, this is an intelligent, critical film about religious faith, and that in itself is a rare achievement.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

78% Burn After Reading (2008) This is Coen Brothers Lite, and extremely entertaining at that.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

100% Man on Wire (2008) This film is a treasure.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2008
49% Towelhead (2007) A gutsy, sometimes tragic, sometimes comic film about racist and sexist attitudes in middle America which have to be negotiated by a young teenage girl.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

61% The Duchess (2008) Now that he seems past his fey middle period, Ralph Fiennes is doing some amazingly good work onscreen.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2008
90% Le fils de l'épicier (The Grocer's Son) (2008) This is very surehanded filmaking from Eric Guirado, and it's a world away from the trendy nostalgia of city folk for country ways in recent French comedies.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

61% Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) It's all good clean fun: a rattling good yarn, in fact, with mostly nicely modulated performances from Fraser, Hutcherson and Bream, emphasising confidence, growth, solidarity and self-reliance.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

92% Caramel (2008) Many films these days celebrate female solidarity. Post-feminism, it's almost obligatory. But very few do it as convincingly, and with such style.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

96% Waltz with Bashir (2008) Ari Folman's brilliant, powerful film raises some universal questions, and some questions specific now to Israel. This is one of the outstanding films of this year.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

52% Funny Games (2008) If you saw the original, the elements of suprise may be missing, but dread and suspense and nastiness are translated perfectly.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2008
84% In Bruges (2008) Colin Farrell has redeemed himself, and shown he is an actor of the first rank.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

74% Son of Rambow (2007) This is a winner, a film to which you can safely take your kids and enjoy yourself.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2008
94% Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! (2008) It's enormous fun, this film, and we owe Hartley a debt of gratitude.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National

86% Rats and Cats (2007) Not a lot happens in it really. But it's the way it doesn't happen that counts.‐ MovieTime, ABC Radio National
