Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) No doubt, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle is empty-calorie escapist fun for the most part, even if it sometimes overcooks what remains a simple recipe to entertain.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3/5 55% The Greatest Showman (2017) The Greatest Showman is a weapons-grade musical of the old school, loaded to its high-spirited hilt with forced smiles and willful warbling.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

4.5/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) So beautiful, heartbreaking and unassumingly masterful from beginning to end, The Florida Project is undoubtedly one of the best movies of 2017.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

4/5 51% Downsizing (2017) The pure ambition of the story - and the inquisitive and contemplative manner in which it is told - is laced with a sincerity that is rare in a Hollywood production.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

4/5 97% Coco (2017) The netherworld into Miguel and his ultra-adorable (and hyper-clumsy) canine sidekick Dante must journey is pure Pixar creativity at its eye-popping visual best.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3/5 71% Ferdinand (2017) While this won't considered the best animated production of the coming holiday season, Ferdinand is a vibrant and engaging affair that doesn't forget the timeless message about aggression and bullying Leaf intended to impart.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

4/5 100% Paddington 2 (2018) The good news on the sequel is that one good minor miracle deserves another: Paddington 2 is the equal of its predecessor, not allowing standards to slip anywhere.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

2.5/5 31% Wonder Wheel (2017) So it goes for Wonder Wheel, an uneven drama-comedy which often looks stunning and emotes with great clarity. But not always at the same time.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

4/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) ... it is the enduring, infectiously unsettling weirdness of Tommy Wiseau which ultimately delivers one of the most amusing comedies of 2017.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

4/5 85% Wonder (2017) ... Wonder lives up to its title in several ways.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3.5/5 87% Only the Brave (2017) A superb ensemble cast... ‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2017
3/5 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) A pleasant enough, if slightly disjointed Christmas film, following a string of hard historical fact with fanciful detours into fiction.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

1/5 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) Sadly, the results end up just as lame and lazy as they were in the original, though with a bitter aftertaste (lessness) that was never there before.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

2/5 9% Tulip Fever (2017) How all of this could have been played so straight - and ended up so politely dull - will bend minds for years to come.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3/5 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) As this serious (often bordering on stern) biopic shows us, Milne's wistful lightness of touch as a writer came from quite a heavy place.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
3/5 82% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) Both players are fascinating characters in their own right. Even more so once their stridently different temperaments come into play.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3/5 98% Lucky (2017) Consider this tumblin' tumbleweed of a movie the perfect way to say goodbye to the great Harry Dean Stanton.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3.5/5 79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) The relentless strangeness of the production casts a hypnotic spell that rents a room in your mind, and keeps renovating it without your permission.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

2.5/5 40% Justice League (2017) With the stakes as low as this, it should come as no surprise that Justice League stays locked in a groove that neither overwhelms nor underwhelms.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3/5 82% Brad's Status (2017) While the actor could indeed handle a movie like Brad's Status in his sleep, Stiller does hustle something alert and relatively affecting from this very familiar material.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3/5 84% Detroit (2017) It is of little importance that the harrowing true story depicted in Detroit happened 50 years ago.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

2.5/5 54% Jungle (2017) While Jungle is not the ideal showcase for any actor - the scripting is wispy and the pacing is inordinately slack - Radcliffe gives everything a red hot go from start to finish.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

2.5/5 54% Conor McGregor: Notorious (2017) Unfortunately, an unseemly proportion of the running time of Notorious is wasted by its constant feeding of McGregor's monstrous ego.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Though this shamelessly showboating affair almost stuffs up the ending, the movie ticks enough of the right boxes to adequately satisfy the world's many Poirot purists (and Christie crackpots).‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

2/5 35% Jigsaw (2017) You know the drill here. A movie like Jigsaw is not here to make friends. It is here to make you feel as if you might be about to lose your lunch.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

1/5 54% Three Summers (2017) A bad movie like this just provides a convenient argument to stay away from local fare until further notice.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

4/5 84% Loving Vincent (2017) An ethereal hybrid of biopic, drama and investigative mystery, Loving Vincent is quite unlike anything seen on screen before.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

2.5/5 29% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Each performer brings something endearing to the mix, a blessing in the second half of the movie, where sluggish pacing means it goes close to outstaying its welcome.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3.5/5 85% Ingrid Goes West (2017) A stinging little dose of social (media) commentary, Ingrid Goes West goes to some highly provocative, but very relevant places.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

1.5/5 13% Geostorm (2017) In the D-grade disaster movie Geostorm, meteorology has turned malicious.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3.5/5 29% Suburbicon (2017) ... this shrewd set of jabs at American pride and its many prejudices has done its job mighty well.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3.5/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) It is definitely no classic, but an appreciably looser, livelier approach will reinvigorate those beginning to tire of the standard Marvel formula.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
3.5/5 81% Brigsby Bear (2017) ... the serenely strange world conjured by Brigsby Bear is as one-of-a-kind as it gets in 2017.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3/5 62% The Foreigner (2017) Due to its seen-it-all-before premise, this no-frills action-thriller is as old school as this kind of fare can be.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
3/5 32% Home Again (2017) The cosy, life-affirming situation depicted here is incredibly hard to believe, yet very easy to sit back and take in.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

4/5 92% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) ... Sandler delivers the standout performance of what is an incredibly well-acted picture.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
3.5/5 71% Happy Death Day (2017) At its best, Happy Death Day is big, trashy fun, best seen with small expectations. At its worst, it's just trash ... but it's still fun!‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Blue (2017) ... the gravity of the ever-worsening situations in our seas hits home with unmistakeable and lasting impact.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

4/5 92% Good Time (2017) How good is Pattinson here? Scary good. De-Niro-in-the-1970s-good.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
2/5 40% The Mountain Between Us (2017) For what is supposed to be a stirring tale of survival against incredible odds, everything depicted here gives off a stilted vibe that does not invite your complete involvement.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
3/5 33% The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) ... it must be said that boredom never once sets in here.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)

3/5 62% Fireworks, Should We See It from the Side or the Bottom? (2017) While this low-key heart-squeezer isn't quite in the same league as the hauntingly beguiling Your Name, it is hard to resist its daydreamy, will-they-or-won't-they? vibe for long.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
3.5/5 73% Final Portrait (2018) A low-key drama of consistently high quality... ‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017

4/5 100% The Go-Betweens: Right Here (2017) By the end of Right Here, you'll no longer have 'em filed away as the greatest band to ever hail from Brisbane...you'll simply remember The Go-Betweens as a great band.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
3/5 85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) The movie is stretching credibility a bit far when it comes to establishing the lasting significance of the freakish contest which ends this saga.‐ Herald Sun (Australia)
